    Perspective reacted to OldSchoolLion in Lakeland Continues Its Domination of SFL   
    A while back, I asked a question on this board concerning the number of transfers Lakeland got this year and not a single person replied.  I found that lack of response very odd, knowing there is more than one person on this board who is a Lakeland fan.  That caused me to do my own research, which I presented on here, and nobody controverted it, so I assume what I presented was correct.  I wouldn't have gone to the bother had someone simply been transparent.  
    Let me make up a little story.  Some folks on here knew the answer, but were too embarrassed to publicly say.  And, if that's indeed the case, I find that laughable.  As I get older, I've come to believe that I should be able to talk publicly about my own actions if I truly feel comfortable with them.  If what these superteams are doing today is perfectly all right, their fans should feel completely open talking about things.  Defensiveness only reinforces that maybe something isn't quite right.  And just because "everyone else is doing it" doesn't make it right. 
    To be specific, I have an issue with what Lakeland is doing today...fielding a team that would not look remotely similar without all of their transfers.  And I would say the exact same for several other teams, for whom I have always had respect... until today.  If that's what Lakeland wants to do, go for it...but I think they look silly playing teams who are light years behind them.

    Perspective got a reaction from Cat_Scratch in Thoughts on Franks Being Out for the Year   
    The two-headed QB combo (Trask and Emery Jones) could actually end up causing more headaches for opposing defenses than Franks by himself.   Or maybe that's just wishful thinking on my part.  Either way, hat's off to Trask for what he was able to accomplish in Lexington this past Saturday night.

    So I just got a response from Frank Beasley at FHSAA. I had written him explaining some of the confusion with the posted formula on FHSAA and asked for clarification and he responded by posting a link to the posted formula in question. lol. So back to square 1

    Perspective got a reaction from Coach in Northeast forfeit the dam game in 3rd Qt Dillard 42-0 dillard moves to 4-0   
    Just a reminder, I'm pretty sure the East Dillon Lions refused to come out after halftime in their first game of the season when they were down 45-0.  As a result, they forfeited the game.  One year later, Coach Taylor led the Lions to a state championship.  In Texas, no less.  So don't sleep on Northeast next year.

    Perspective got a reaction from HornetFan in Jax TCA vs Venice this Friday   
    The transfer system has made it easier for a kid zoned for one school to attend another school in another district and play sports at the new school.  No question about it.   That was always the intent of the legislation.   It allowed the rich to get richer (except those that are at capacity; they get screwed).  It has, in my opinion, allowed schools, coaches, boosters, players, parents, etc.  to be a little more brazen about "encouraging" kids to take advantage of the new transfer policy.  And, at the same time, the FHSAA has significantly throttled back its investigative and enforcement duties, responsibilities and obligations, perhaps because they don't want to run the risk of being legislated completely out of existence.   Imagine, if you will, a society where law enforcement is afraid to pursue criminals for fear that they will be put out of business if they arrest/prosecute those very criminals.  Well, that's where we are now with high school football.

    Perspective got a reaction from Cat_Scratch in FL vs OOS Since 2004 - 115 Games   
    Absolutely . . . because the only reason why any Florida team should ever play an out-of-state game is so that folks on a message board can claim that the teams in their state are better than the teams in another state.   Forget that coaches might want to give their teams a challenge, might want to create a bonding experience and might actually want to give their kids a chance to get on an airplane and leave the town they grew up in for the first time.  
    (And before you jump on the argument that they could find other teams in Florida to challenge them, remember that there are some counties that literally won't let their teams cross county lines unless it's a district game, a playoff game or an out-of-state game . . . and feel free to argue the logic of that line of thinking).

    Dude (I'm assuming), you're on a roll this morning.   But, as I have suggested in other threads, I truly believe that the FHSAA's hands are tied on this right now.  They opposed the law that went into effect 3-4 years ago that essentially legalized open/free transfers.  They knew what would happen (i.e., what is now happening).  But, if the FHSAA tries to regulate the transfer of student/athletes in a way that contradicts the law, they run the risk of getting legislated out of existence.

    Actually on the contrary my wife usually works a 12 on Fridays (since she is in school Tuesday through Thursday now) and by the time she gets home at around 8 She is too tired to go out anywhere and the kids have worn me out so I am tired and by that time I can only make it to a Plant game and have it still be in the 1st half  and since Plant Sucks this year I just stay home or go catch the 2nd half of one of the close by teams (CCC, Clearwater, Largo, PPark). 
    For me to travel to Lake City I would essentially have to abandon my kids to fend for themselves for about 4 hours while they wait for mommy to get home... The 2 year old would probably be okay but not so sure about the 4 year old LOL.... I won't be traveling much if at all this season or next season for any game.
