As we reported this morning, two Ohio high school football players were suspended from the team after they ran onto the field on 9-11 with thin blue line and thin red line flags in support of the anniversary, and the heroes lost that day at the WTC.
The thin blue line flag represents support for police officers and the thin red line flag represents support for fire fighters.
The boys were honoring 9-11 victims and their fathers who work as a police officer and a fire fighter.
What thanks did they get for this awesome show of support for heroes? A permanent suspension for the entire season!
We provided the website, email and phone numbers of the Little Miami school that suspended them for our readers to let the school know how they felt about this outrage.
Well in just a few short hours, the backlash against the school's administrators has been so great that, moments ago, they emailed 24News to let us know they REVERSED the suspension for the two players, effective immediately.
They attached an image of this letter:

No one felt strongly enough about this to resign? Bogus.
Stances of insubordination.
Lets here it fer publik skrewl!
The administration is still not our friends.
Superintendent was no doubt one of those brilliant Ed majors.
Thanks to the Democrats, Honor Guards and the National Anthem are now politics.
9-11 is a fitting day to honor LE and firefighters, too.
After the instant replay review the ruling is no foul.
Honoring those first responders slain by the al-Qaeda terrorists sn't "politics."
You ain't right.......
They were suspended because they were insubordinate to the school board...
I’m not suggesting the effected students dox the school board members, but one might suggest such a thing.
They need to carry the flags at every game.
Allrighty then. So you are saying no BLM messages or they would be suspended?
Supporting cops and firefighters is political? Make sure to share that with the operator when you call 911 for a fire, robbery, accident or whatnot.
Extract your cranium from your rectum and open your eyes. Those rose color glasses you seem to be looking through are merely what a proctologist sees.
These school administrators are idiots. They blindly act then are forced to realize the parents and students have bombed them with the reality in their community’s attitudes.
If I had my way I’d have all of them shot!
No, they were suspended, per the letter, because there were stances of insubordination.
I’ll bet those boys wouldn’t know a stance if it bit them!
Not enough - they need to apologize to the kids and the police and fire departments.
The Democrats are now simultaneously saying that government employees are hateful and racists and murderers so vote Democrat for more government.
Yep. That’s liberals standing up for their “principles” again.
As if they had any beyond lying and looting.
Time to suspend the “administrators” indefinitely. Zero tolerance goes both ways.
