Throwing a kid out of an event is not just two hours detention is it. It was the last home game of the year and these teachers need to mellow out.

Frankly, I’d have flipped the son of a B off too, and my language would have probably have mirrored what the kids did.

Seems rather childish. You could join the kids on their deserved suspensions.

It's also not the most draconian punishment ever meted out. Big deal, they missed half a game. It wasn't even close -- Ripon won, 59-12. Their cheering obviously wasn't the linchpin of the Indians' victory.

Last game, first game, in the hallway, it doesn't really matter. Disrespectful and disobedient behavior should be addressed, not ignored. The cheerleaders might learn something about personal responsibility, but I doubt it -- not with Brittany Spears as a role model.

All that said, perhaps their cheer/dance didn't initially warrant expulsion from the field. I think that's a separate issue.
