We do take our football seriously. So do a lot of other Americans. Some on here defend the kid only because the Steelers might have beat their team during the reg. season or playoffs. It may seem trivial, but a pro sports team gives a city a lot of it's identity.The same people who chastise the teacher would not chastise the people who would object to a person bringing an Iranian flag to a pro-USA rally.
The kid was obviously looking to stir the pot a little. When he got the reaction he was looking for he couldn't handle it.
The NFL's 2006 season is going to be grand! Games on Monday, Thursday, Saturday and Sunday nights plus the usual Sunday card. This could hammer the bar and restaurant business but I don't really care. I've got my La-Z-Boy and my Sony LCD all set for some serious "cooping." Gosh, when is it going to be September? (No sarcasm here, seriously.)
Let me get this straight. You are comparing a kid wearing a football jersey to one of the most militant inhuman death-cult governments to ever exist? I guess you are serious about your football.
So the kid did something stupid. So what. Kids do that. But for a teacher to crawl in the judgment sewer with the kid is no excuse. This teacher was wrong to single out a kid, especially over such trivial circumstances. I hope they properly discipline this idiot teacher.
