FWIW, IMO, you have to be pretty freakin' stupid to not see this as inappropriate.
Four weeks into the Cincinnati Premier Youth Basketball Leagueâ€™s season, parents of players on a team from West Clermont, Ohio, saw that the team from Kings Mills, Ohio, against whom their children were playing was named â€śThe Wet Dream Team.â€ť They also noticed that the names on the backs of the high-school-aged boysâ€™ jerseys included phrases like â€śKnee Growâ€ť and â€śCoon.â€ť
Tony Rue, a parent of a West Clermont player, highlighted the eyebrow-raising jerseys in a lengthy Facebook post asking how such attire, and such a team name, was deemed appropriate for a league that hosts players from grades two through 12.
â€śBy no means are we perfect parents or assume our teenage boys are innocent and donâ€™t speak of things like this, but I could never imagine allowing my teenage son to represent his school and league in this manner, let alone representing our family with such filth,â€ť Rue wrote. â€ś[â€¦] There is enough hate, bullying, and aggressive behavior in the world that these kids, parents, and schools shouldnâ€™t have to deal with bigotry and lewd innuendos on jerseys and in team names in a school district represented recreational basketball league. This isnâ€™t a typo, this isnâ€™t a mistake, these are ideas that were thought of, discussed, agreed upon by adults and kids alike, printed on uniforms, social media accounts registered and manned and no one thought this was a bad idea or inappropriate?â€ť
