: : : Why is Pollon even relevant in HS sports? He was an awful HS player, He overcharges teams and players for his events, he's biased for teams and schools he works for, his knowledge of the game is remedial at best. Why do people even like this guy......
: : :Who else is out there covering the game? It's a lot of hours for little to no pay. He's all that you said but he also is there and as the sayig goes his best ability is availability.
: That�s a great f�in line! �His best ability is his availability�. And that�s not a dig at Pollon.
His availability is due to him making money from scamming families through basketball. The Daily News once hired him but then he was caught plagiarizing and betting on high school games. Even at that time, he was known for writing more postings about a school or player if they'd paid him.
He does a good job of keeping people updated on game scores and player movement. He's probably the best in our area at that. Unfortunately, he's one of the worst at player and team assessments. Part is because he doesn't know basketball and part is he's extremely biased.
Lastly, look at the coaches and program that support him. Parents should really avoid any coach who consistently supports Jack: Heritage Chr, Village Chr, St. Genevieve, Alemany etc. It's a circle of scammers that's supporting each other and benefitting from scamming families.
