  1. They all bother me. It is a horrible trend, but counties and schools shouldn't complain when they do the same stuff. I've seen school reps from private schools walk up to players right after games with applications already printed out. I mean road games, so they brought them with them before hand having watched a kid on film probably why scouting for that game. Then seen and heard coaches for the same schools complain when other schools poach there guys in meetings. In fact, the one school was a smaller Palm Beach private school trying to take from a smaller Broward public school that I witnessed that a few years ago. So, their complaints now just seem ridiculous.
  2. Deerfield has taken kids as well, but I would argue that Palm Beach has also taken kids from Broward and if you can't handle losing kids then you shouldn't be a part of the problem. A bunch of kids in Palm Beach have Pompano Beach in Broward listed as their hometown. I mean Lamar Jackson and Devin Singletary are 2 of the more famous kids that are from Broward, but played in Palm Beach that come to mind.
  3. A couple Gibbons kids already transferred to St. Thomas and a couple Monarch kids including All County Sophomore QB have transferred to Deerfield. Transfer season has definitely already started.

    Rpi question

    You bring back districts in lower classes and you lose a bunch of teams back to independent within a few years. A few teams right now are in the playoffs or on the edge that were independent the better part of last 8 years because they were forced to play teams they just couldn't handle and kids were leaving. Catch 22. Does the FHSAA want to lose people again? It is also not as simple as building a program up to compete either in today's modern day of transfers. Average small schools with 25-35 kids can't afford even 2 senior transfers because they sucked one year.
  5. Miramar just forfeited 4 games for use of illegal player. Drops their record to 1-7. This wasn't taken into account for this weeks rankings. This will affect teams like Dillard who already has a horrible OWP. Now factor in a 1-7 team instead of a 5-3 team for next week.
  6. They started to play the 3rd quarter. The last touchdown was in the 3rd. More to it then just quitting most likely.
  7. I'm going to go out on a limb and say there was probably something else going on on the sidelines or some other factor then just quitting that people in the stands or Dillard fans don't know. The coach has been at NE 3-4 years and they have lost plenty including blowouts to Chaminade and Dillard in the past without quitting. It wouldn't make sense to just quit now. 42-0 in the 3rd isn't even that bad once the running clock starts you can get that over pretty quick with out reaching 60. Also, I seen some clips of the game. Dillard wasn't running over or hurting NE players oustide of the DL just being too much for NE OL. They really just were better athletes in open space and NE couldn't tackle them.
  8. Did they actually forfeit or was it weather? Was it one of those its a lightning delay and we can call the game now or keep waiting and hope it passes. If it was close teams usually wait, but 42-0 those are games that get called by coaches or ADs. I believe they started the 2nd half and it was raining. I could be wrong though.
  9. They only have 25 players and that included 9th graders as they don't have a JV. They don't have 3rd string and you don't play small freshman vs. Dillards V 3rd string.
  10. Yea, I was more talking about them being an example of falling apart last couple years because of transfers leaving. Not how they were built.
  11. They were 100% live, but only a half game. They have them every year in Dade-Broward. Not sure this year, but were held at FIU for a bit. County invites teams. 12 this year. Yes, some Broward Public schools are benefiting from the transferring and can now compete with privates, but overall it is hurting Broward. More teams are falling apart and instead of having a bunch of competitive games you see more blowouts. Flanagan is a great example of an end result of what you get with these transfers. Do you really want to see a bunch of teams turn onto that or 7 games that aren't even worth watching on your schedule.
  12. I would say your coaches and AD dropped the ball if you showed up not knowing that. Coaches talk and decide this stuff weeks before the actual games and they should now to ask because it is standard especially if it was a spring game.

  14. The question is are you going to find an independent school that isn't part of the FHSAA that is worth transferring to distance, money, and competition wise. As someone stated, most independent schools are still FHSAA and it would still hold.
  15. At the end of the day, it is HS basketball. Most people aren't traveling hours to watch that regardless of where you put it. Not regular people that live by and went to the school who have jobs or kids of their own or teachers. You have about 15 kids on each team. So if each kid gets a parent or two and siblings then add on some extra family members, the extreme fan (most schools don't have this), some teachers (Not even the majority would travel) and admin. That is what you are drawing. That is only going to be a couple hundred no matter where you put it. So, who cares if the arena looks funny. At least it is neutral and both teams are traveling similar distances. It isn't like it is getting watched nationally and people are staring at the crown. You are looking at the court if streaming a game or whatever.
