    If 100k can protest in Washington, then 3-5 k should be able to go to a football game.

    I want to say congratulations to Fight on for William Blount 91 for getting his college degree from the University of Tennessee. The guy worked hard going after this working crazy hours and doing the stuff most of us wouldn't to accomplish this. Congrats good buddy.

    Agree totally. No difference between the two parties. Both want socialism but just at different speeds. That is why both hate Trump because he is not part of their process.

    Saturday Night I went to the local Dollar General at 9 p.m. and must of been at least 40 people in that place and I didn't see one person with a mask at all and even the employee's. As I was getting ready to get in line I could hear a a big lard azz woman coughing her head off in an isle over from me with no mask. There were three people in front of me as I stood 6 feet behind them and two younger guys came up from behind me and stood right on my back and I told them either get in front of me or back off so they took my invitation and went ahead which I didn't care but they knew I was mad. Soon as they did a woman who heard the whole thing go down moved right on up and took their place. I couldn't wait to get out of there before somebody hit my go to jail switch. When I got to my truck and sat there a minute as I cooled down and I thought of how irresponsible that whole thing was it came clear to me this isn't the only place this is going on. Everyone has let their guard down and my first thought was this will be the end of high school football for 2020. Those that know me well are on my facebook page and saw where i posted on this incident Sunday morning only to be met with I'm not wearing a mask and all the other nonsense they've heard from who knows who. I knew from the beginning there wouldn't be a football season in 2020 because there would be an extended period when the rush of idiots came out of hiding. I'm a realist and know you can't depend on most human beings for anything so what happened with the extended period out to August 29th is no surprise to me at all. As we get closer to that time we'll see another extension and have to make plans to move football to spring. Hopefully they can come up with a cure for this stuff in the meantime so life can return to normal. If not I have doubts even on a 2021 season.

    my god. You know this country is in bad shape when people are getting “offended” by a High School’s nickname smh. I’m about to start a petition that I’m offended by people laying on their couch collecting a check instead of getting off their lazy behinds and going back to work! Who’s with me?

    I never had any beef with him either until I called out the “Almighty” Powell Panthers for recruiting on here and then he went off. Keep in mind this is the same Powell he has “no association with anymore” lol. The OLD saying goes Where there’s smoke, there’s fire. There has been smoke at Powell not 1, but 2 years in a row now. Draw your conclusion there yourself. As for OR, they have all the tools to compete this year to go to State IMO.

    The Chief Executive at every level of government under a federal system of government has broad powers to make executive orders. President at the National level, Governor at the State and County Mayors at the county level. Courts have upheld these unless they are an unconstitutional order. Courts have avoided overturning these orders as they are bordering on infringing on the concept of separation of powers which is considered a building block of a representative democracy. Long story short, zero chance of a lawsuit over high school sports.

    Especially for a Democratic hoax where 15 people had it and it was going to be gone in a SHORT PERIOD OF TIME. I've tried to tell people there are no 2 sides in this politic thing, its pure Government, They argue an fuss in public to try and make us think they are opposite,in private they laugh their rear ends off at how gullible we are. Its untelling who and where this Chinese flu came from but I highly doubt our Country will ever recover from it. This thing has MANY legs.

    We could say that is the best case scenario but we don’t really know that or what the worst case scenario is for that matter. None of us know what will happen in the coming weeks. I learned a long time ago not to worry about things I can’t control. We all just need to sit back and wait and see how this unfolds and not automatically expect the worst.

    I agree it is premature to make decisions in June about something that is 2 months away. No one knows with certainty where we will be at that time. Perhaps the numbers go way down. Maybe we learn something new about the virus that makes it easier to combat. Maybe they develop a vaccine. Or maybe it is really bad and we have to shut everything down again. The bottom line is no one knows. If we do not prepare to be ready to play, then we probably cannot even if we get the chance. Let’s prepare for and hope for the best and choose the best course of action when we get there.

    Difference between a man made trial is reasonable doubt,The Man upstairs at the final judgement wont need no testimonies from any other but you!HE KNOWS THE ANSWER.In the Bible it tells us we know what we need to know,some things are a mystery that will be answered when it needs be.pujo all you need to know is that you KNOW!Other things are pretty tough to understand but that 1 thing (LOL I think of Billy Crystal and Jack Palance when I hear that) even a child can understand it,then just enjoy life the best you can.Shoot I've been blessed beyond measure!Got a son 3 years sober from Alcohol,Cocaine and Crystal Meth.He is a staff member and a Minister for True Purpose Ministries in Blount County.He stayed in that program away from EVERYTHING for 2 years,no phone or TV.We got to visit every Sunday.He found a great wife that met him at one of the out reach ministries and stood by him the last year of rehab and they have been married over a year and expecting my 4th grandchild in 3 weeks.I couldnt be more proud.Gods justice system works just fine if you trust him.Yes my wife and my life was turned upside down when he told me in Feb 2017 but God is an Awesome God!I dont set around and question the what ifs and the how comes,if you do then I hope you find the answer you are looking for I found mine in 1985.May not really go with what you are asking but my wife showed me his Fathers day Quote on facebook and I got a little excited again and thought i might share it!!

    Thanks! With the way this year has been we certainly need things to get back to normal, or as close to it as possible. Our kids need to be back in school, they need the activities that come along with that, and our communities need high school sports, they have a way of holding us together, especially football.

    I knew the whole story actually, however If i had owed a country like Germany money when Hitler was in power I'd probably have put it off a few more years. Try to give payment in humanitarian aid or something besides something that could be used to fund terror. Or hope for a regime change that wouldn't use it for bad things. That's just me though. Odd he did it on the way out and in secret. You'd think he didnt want anyone to confront him for it. Ir know about it until it was too late etc.

    That's unfortunate. I hope one day you have a change of heart Pujo. I will pray for you personally out of the love Jesus showed for us on the cross. I hope you he heals your heart. Show grace — a godly response to irritation It’s normal to feel irritated or upset with other people, but God wants us to learn a different way to respond. As you read the following two passages, circle the words “bear with.” Bear with each other and forgive whatever grievances you may have against one another. Forgive as the Lord forgave you. (Colossians 3:13) Responding to others with grace means “bearing with” (or graciously putting up with) people. It means acknowledging that everyone has areas of weakness and that we all are works in progress. It means loving people in spite of their personalities, habits, and faults. Jesus helped us understand this when he told his followers to love their enemies and to pray for those who persecuted them.

    I'll play along... #1 - Because relatively speaking, we still know VERY little about the epidemiology/virology of this virus. That isn't even debatable, and yet people still want to debate that. #2 - Because we do not yet have a treatment (or vaccine) for this virus. Laugh if you want, but we at least have a flu vaccine, and even if we don't "pick" the right one each year, it is remarkably effective at reducing the severity of the flu symptoms (especially in the elderly). #3 - Because in the 21st century, we tend to do things differently, right, wrong, or indifferent. Influenza has been around for centuries; it wasn't discovered last year. The Spanish flu pandemic would have looked quite a bit different had it occurred this century. Here's a [rhetorical] question, 22. So why weren't we all practicing good hygiene to begin with? Shouldn't we have been washing our hands during flu season last year? Shouldn't we stay home when we are sick (same for our kids)? My hope is that we ALL have learned to be a little more hygienic and self-aware, especially during cold and flu season.

    There is no way to stop the virus from spreading. For example, even though NC has been much stricter than Tennessee, they still have higher numbers than Tennessee. As the great children’s song “Going on a bear hunt suggest”... we can’t go over it, or under it..... we have to go through it. Fortunately, it’s not as deadly as once feared. Time to mask up when possible, wash our hands, and our distances all while moving forward with life.

    A big thank you to the men who gave us our Independence. And another big thank you to those of you who have served to keep us independent. As you watch fireworks shows tonight (if you can find any), think about the fact that nearly 245 years ago that was the sounds of cannons being heard. Think of the fact that a fledgling group of colonies and colonists were taking on the greatest military power of it's day. All for a better way of life. We haven't been the most perfect nation since then, and the founders knew we were not perfect then. But they laid the framework so that we could constantly build towards a more perfect Union. There will never be perfection but we must always strive, as a nation and as a people, to uphold what they gave us and to build upon it. Happy birthday to the United States.

    A friend wrote this but he nailed it: The coronavirus is real but government controls the numbers. The numbers will grow as pressure is placed on the elite people in this world. The elites control a large majority of the world. They control the media and when you control the media, you are able to make fear spread quickly. They are trying to make good look bad, and bad look good. They are trying to brainwash us! I ask, please open your eyes to the entire picture and pray for our world!

    Interesting data. Of the deaths recorded of HS and college age people the virus accounts for just over 1% or in another light 99% of deaths for that age group have not been related to the Coronavirus. The percentage is even smaller for MS aged children. So the discussion point is if schools are opening on time (not all may be opening on time with in class services) and they are not requiring masks in the class rooms, is the TSSAA guideline for conducting athletic activity risk mitigation or risk avoidance?

    With everything that was discussed yesterday by the Board of Control this is the schedule that teams are looking at as of next week: 7/6 through 7/11 = Summer Workouts & Conditioning 7/13 through 7/18 = Summer Workouts & Conditioning 7/20 through 7/25 = Summer Workouts & Conditioning 7/27 through 8/1 = Summer Workouts & Conditioning 8/3 through 8/8 = Summer Workouts & Conditioning 8/10 through 8/15 = Workouts & Conditioning (after school) 8/17 through 8/22 = Workouts & Conditioning (after school) 8/24 through 8/29 = Workouts & Conditioning (after school) 8/31 through 9/5 = Preseason Week 1 in Pads 9/7 through 9/12 = Preseason Week 2 in Pads (if teams still choose to play Jamborees it will be on this week) 9/18 = Week 1 9/25 = Week 2 10/2 = Week 3 10/9 = Week 4 10/16 = Week 5 10/23 = Week 6 10/30 = Week 7 11/6 = Week 8 or Round 1 11/13 = Week 9, Round 1, or Round 2 11/20 = Quarterfinals 11/27 = Semifinals 12/3, 12/4, 12/5 = State Championship Games Here's my big question over all of this mess. The Weeks of 12/11-12/12 and 12/18-12/19 are also available for the TSSAA to use to get their fall sports seasons completed prior to the Christmas Holiday Break. Why do they elect to not use those weeks? Colleges do graduation in the fall semester the weekend of 12/11-12/12 if school is in session. That means that the 12/18-12/19 weekend would have no bearing on Tennessee Tech. If so then just move the State Championships to another venue such as Middle Tennessee State, Austin Peay, or Vanderbilt. All of those locations would be great options for the TSSAA to look at using anyway. If the TSSAA Board of Control would simply do that then they could play a 9 week regular season + play a full 5 week playoff bracket and there wouldn't be anything to vote on right now. It would be a done deal and everyone would be happy with what takes place.

    Expose my kids to a much more serious environment? You just need to go kick rocks. My wife is a surgeon who about lost her job due to the shutdown and lack of surgeries being allowed to be performed and she is now working 6 days a week to get caught up. My family is aware we are in more danger when we move driving to our new house than the dangers of this virus. Keep drinking the political Kool-Aid. Do you know the CDC since late May has been including positive antibody tests into the daily positive count? Why is that? It is like they want this to continue. The death rate and hospitalization rate has plummeted since April. Now the news talks about ICUs being 85-90% filled, what the average citizen doesn't know is that hospitals have to keep that % there to stay financially viable. It is a common percentage. Luckily for our family we will have the means to provide our son a senior season, but many will not. Also be careful who you lecture on here about the the risks of the virus, so go ahead and go back and live in your bubble.

    It's obvious that you have something to lose in this as does every kid, parent, coach, and even fans. If it's that important to your family as a whole I honestly wouldnt wait, as Tennessee seems to be taking more precautions then surrounding states with much worse statistics as far as Identified covid-19 cases are concerned. To that end though would you be willing to expose your kids and family to a much more serious environment as far as the virus is concerned? Wish you good luck either way. At this point I'm gonna sit back and let the wheels turn as it's the only thing we can do at this point. We can only hope the decisions made are in the best interest of the kids. We should be thankful whatever happens.

    You might be an old school Democrat. I don't know if you've been in a coma but your party has been hijacked. Actually I think they've already turned you. You quickly put the "racist" label on me and all I did is state the facts. That's always the go to tactic of Socialist/Communist. And by the way, Socialist is just a nicer name for Communist. I didn't "attack" Liberals or Black Lives Matter. I simply told the truth about them. It is a fact that the founder of Black Lives Matter is a Socialist/Communist. Their using Black people to achieve their goals. It is a fact that Socialist/Communist are taking over the Democrat Party. Do you know what would of happened to you if you had stood up in the crowd on NYC and said Blue Lives Matter or All Lives Matter? You'd got the beat down of your life, or worse. And to clear up another thing. Black people are not being choked to death by "Police officers" That was one "Police Officer" in one city and theres no evidence he did it because he's a racist. There is evidence there was bad blood between them from the time they worked together a year before. The guy was a bad cop and he murdered George Floyd. And he'll pay a heavy price for that. The choke hold is/was in the training of pretty much every police department in the country. Black, White, Asian or whatever race police officer used it. It wasn't a tactic used just by White Police Officers against Black people. But the Media and Black Lives Matter as well as every liberal (including you) would want everyone to think that's the case. I somehow have this vision of you kneeling down on your knees and begging for forgiveness, for something you didn't even do. I am so relieved to get this off my chest. Thank you for letting me say this. good grief!

    There will be football this fall. It may be different than what everyone is used to and may not be convenient for everyone, mostly for fans. But I do believe there will be football. It’s hard to screw kids who have worked their tails off for years out of an entire season, especially Seniors who don’t have another year of eligibility. HS is not like the NFL or College. Those guys will be granted another year of eligibility and be paid regardless. Hs players don’t have either of those luxury’s. It’s time to get over this Covid stuff, quit listening to the doom and gloom news stations pumping everyone with horror for their own agendas and get back to life. Just my opinion

    There will not be a vaccine by January 2021. Probably should shut everything down and not allow anyone out of their house for at least 3 or 4 years.

    Revenge of the Nerds 5 has taken another turn yesterday when one of the Geeks that went to MHS that lives in Nashville contacted Nike and got a response and sent a picture of two scallywag girls holding a Rebel Flag which would have to been taken by one of them. He was asking all signers of the no rebels petition to follow along because Nike was listening. I wonder what his thoughts are that Nike is produced across seas with child labor at peanuts so they can pay all these ungrateful pro athletes a war pension leaving us to buy their garbage. I'm actually done with pro anything and I personally am glad major league baseball may not play or ever plays again. They can get a real job like the rest of us.

    Well just as expected they shut the topic down on the alumni site quick as I was fixing to go after that one girl for going into this drama about how upsetting it was to explain to her children why Maryville had the name Rebels and a Rebel Flag. I wanted to ask her in front of everyone what she told her children when her mother broke up the next door neighbors marriage when he ran into some money. That would of got rid of her.

    If Trump had made this payment... Deflection is a pretty good way to try and divert guilt. Trump did not send money to Iran. Obama, his administration and his party DID in fact do the ugly deed. Saying what Trump might have done is an assumption. Also Trump has shown he will not let Iran have their way. The U.S. and Iran nearly entered into an open conflict on 8 January 2020 when the IRGC launched missile attacks against two Iraqi military bases housing U.S. soldiers in retaliation for the killing of Soleimani, a rare direct Iran–U.S. confrontation and the closest to the brink of war between the two nations in decades ... Now that's reopened it would seem one president funded a country for open ended terrorism ( who knows these missiles could have been paid for with Obama's terror payment.) On the other hand Trump reacted to an attack on or in the vicinity of American troops. Not to mention killing Soleimani. The truth is there folks and it's easy to see which is the lesser of two evils so to speak. At least regarding actions on Iran. There are always two sides to a discussion depending on how one likes to see it. However I believe this summarizes Trumps views on Iran and terrorism. Trump also attacked a Syrian base and what not for terrorist acts. What did Obama do? He funds states that carry out acts of terrorism. Please try and refute any of this as the truth is there for all to see.

    Here’s what’s funny and somebody else other than HTV(because he got his feelings hurt and “blocked” me ) explain to me. What is the meaning behind this “playing the game” comment? What game is being played, what’s the definition of that statement? I want someone to make a statement and tell me about any school around here, and I wanna know names and exactly what they are doing, that’s “playing the game.” We obviously know who was involved in both instances at Powell by now and names. I’ll be waiting to hear back about this one lol. I love how every school in this area is put under the same blanket statement just because one person’s school/team got caught cheating....twice lol.
