Talk about censorship!

Oh, the humanity!

FWIW, IMO, you have to be pretty freakin' stupid to not see this as inappropriate.


Four weeks into the Cincinnati Premier Youth Basketball League’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 “The Wet Dream Team.” They also noticed that the names on the backs of the high-school-aged boys’ jerseys included phrases like “Knee Grow” and “Coon.”

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.

“By no means are we perfect parents or assume our teenage boys are innocent and don’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,” Rue wrote. “[…] There is enough hate, bullying, and aggressive behavior in the world that these kids, parents, and schools shouldn’t have to deal with bigotry and lewd innuendos on jerseys and in team names in a school district represented recreational basketball league. This isn’t a typo, this isn’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?”

I don't know what's harder to believe. That the kids thought this would be funny and couldn't possible backfire. Or that it wasn't shut down immediately. Especially the names on the jerseys.

That's what blows my mind. According to the article, it was four weeks into the season before someone complained and/or action was taken. WTF?

Apparently the league didn't see it as inappropriate until someone pointed it out 3 weeks into the season. How does it go on that long?

How does it go that long without someone punching one of the idiots.

Is this really a "teachable moment" or are the adults who enabled it and the youth who participated in it just c$$ts?

I think i am 50/50 at this point but leaning towards c$$ts

I agree. Apparently there is a whole world out there that I had no idea existed.
