: : : : Wow CIF......you better checky check yourself before you wreck yourself Cotton! So a kid who played varsity this year at SCCS gets cleared today for playoffs for valencia this year. Congrats CIF for buying the bs around why this player left SCCS. Wow!
: : : : why did he leave then?
: : This is a really poor precedent. I remember something like this in the IE last year or the year before during the second half of league. Just poor form for the both the school accepting the player and CIF. How can you sell a player being eligible with 1-3 weeks left in a potential season to your team. That's the school and team problem. CIF you should have a trade errrrrr transfer deadline during season. Can you imagine what it would look like? Scrambling for "good fits", establishing residency before the deadline. We'd get Sond bombs about late breaking news. God bless.
: What if a player is abused, mistreated or something even more serious is happening to him or her. Should the athletes pay the price by giving up their season. It has to be a case by case basis. Just a thought.
If they are abused the coach would be fired, mistreated might just be that your kid isn't very good or the word got out that you were shopping around or might leave so why play/put time into someone who is not committed. If something more serious happened then the game of basketball probably isn't what the kid needs at another school for the last 2 weeks of the season. Everyone would claim "mistreatment" because johnny isn't getting his 15 pts a game like the coach promised even though he shoots 52 percent from the foul line and would average 15 if he shot 75 percent.
I do think a transfer deadline is a good idea or you can not play varsity for 2 schools in the same season perhaps. If you know you are moving since it doesn't happen over night just play jv until you are gone. Just another thought.
