Varsity football cancelled

Oscoda Press: Varsity football cancelled:
"The Oscoda High School football stands were empty Friday night.

Instead of suiting up for the first home varsity football game of the season, the 0-4 team was at the Carter’s parking lot, joined by 110 students and parents who were demonstrating in protest of the administration’s decision to cancel the Owls’ varsity football season.
According to an unsigned press release sent from the district superintendent’s office, the decision was made Sept. 19, “after much thought, research and many discussions with parents, athletes, fellow schools in the NEMC conference and with the Michigan High School Athletic Association.”"

I couldn't believe this story when I heard about it today on the Boortz show. What about the benefits of athletic competition that is always talked about? I guess the Oscoda School Board doesn't buy that stuff about winning and losing and how we play the game?
