After watching “Making A Murderer”, I definitely don’t want to have to go to court in Wisconsin… and after reading this, who would want to go to a sporting event?
Apparently people there get a little too butt-hurt when spectators of high school games start chanting. Which would make you think, “what in the world could they be chanting that is causing such an issue?” Are they insulting someone’s mother? Did they say something that would fall under the “too soon” category? Nope… here are the banned phrases…
- “We can’t hear you”
- “Air ball”
- “You can’t do that”
- “There’s a net there”
- “Season’s over” (during tournament play)
In an email sent out to students, the WIAA banned “chants by student sections directed at opponents and/or opponents’ supporters that are clearly intended to disrespect.”
Political correctness gone awry!
By the way, one of the only reasons we are hearing about this is because a high school athlete April Gehl tweeted her criticism, with some profane language, about the rule changes. This resulted in her being suspended from her school!
