Smh they need to separate these 2 teams before we end up with a WWE Royal Rumble or something at one of these games

 

 

 

In this very charged society in which we live, they need to place them in separate districts (preferably regions). I fear something very bad could happen if this continues.

The fhsaa needs to separate these teams before this issue becomes too toxic to fix

Here's what you need to know - Braden River first team was in 2007; 2006 was jv only.  The location of the school is key to everything.  It is located just over the county line in Manatee county.  Everything there is new.  It is were all the new homes are being built; the new mall is there, it is where everyone goes when they are looking for something fun to do.  Lakewood Ranch, which is just a minute or two up the road was like that until Braden River came along.  Now they are yesterday's news.  All the kids that go to the other schools in Manatee county especially Lakewood Ranch and Southeast now want to go to Braden River.  Even Booker who is just over on the other side the county line kids want to go there.  And go talk to the residents, the parents want their kids there.  So Braden River became a powerhouse overnight it seems like.  So there is a lot of hate from the established programs aimed at them.  Venice on the other hand is an established program that has been around for decades.  They are further south in Sarasota county so they don't have to worry about their kids jumping ship as much.  For the last several years that district has come down to either Venice or Braden River.  Both have made deep runs in the playoffs in recent years.

Very much a big game, big crowd, etc.  Haven't experienced firsthand but hear about it from friends over there.  Both fan bases are strong and equally rowdy.

If Braden River didn’t exist, Southeast would be a dominant force in 7A or 8A. You can pretty much correlate to opening of BR to the fall of Southeast football.

Not only that, but also it hurt Lakewood Ranch because just as they started to get good, Braden River opened up.  

The head coach from Palmetto was an assistant at Southeast before going there.  If you will remember, 2011 Palmetto made a deep run in the playoffs before losing to Miami Norland.   Palmetto had a few transfers that were former Southeast players.  Something the rest of us found quite interesting to say the least.

Yep. Dave Marino and his brother were both at Southeast when I was there (90-93). Boundary went all the way out through Myakka City.

or discipline the coaches.  I can't believe theses admins put up with this stuff.

Ok but that solves only half the problem

 

The tension spread from the coaches to the players,  even if you discipline the coaches what will be done to lower the tension among the players?

this is high school football.  If the coaches can't handle it you fire them.  The coaches and parents are the ones acting like little babies.   Was there a fight during the game?  Was there a brawl?  I think the players will be fine.

When tensions are high all it takes is a spark

 

Just because a fight didn't happen yet doesn't mean it can't happen

 

Can you really tell me Badbird that you felt before the game that there was no possibility at all of a brawl occurring with how high tensions were going in?

I ain't disagreeing with that

 

Yes the adults are the main cause of the tension but does that mean we should let them stay in same district when tensions are so high or wouldn't it be smart to move them to separate districts so they won't play as often and hopefully cool off the tension?

The refs have to get control of the game and the administration needs to get control of their coaches. Plain and simple. 

Ive seen refs allow kids to punch other kids in the face and throw no flags. Coach gets flagged yelling at the refs to do something. Then a brawl breaks out three plays later. Whose fault is that? The refs. Not the kids nor the coaches. 

Administration of both schools need to get together on a Saturday afternoon and bring both coaches in and tell them that this stuff needs to be settled right then and there or they are both gone.

no get rid of the problem.  We can't be moving people because adults can't do their job.

    • There is no perfect system.  But, as you point out, I've never been one of those who says the whole playoff system should be geared up in hopes of have the two "best" teams in each region playing in each of the four regional finals.   There are just way too many factors to make that determination and way too many things happen along the road to a regional final game (upsets being just one of those things).  How many times do the top 2 seeds in a tennis tournament end up matched up against each other in the finals? How often do you see four # 1 seeds make the NCAA Final Four in basketball or hockey?  How often do you see the #1 seed in the AFC and the #1 seed in the NFC square off in the Super Bowl? More often than not, the cream ultimately rises to the top, but I just don't think it's worth the effort in high school football. 
    • no I said I was shocked you didn't have them higher.  I would have.  
    • Fort Myers girls basketball: State champs '16, '17 and '18.  Semi-finals '15 and '19.   Softball:  State champs '17 . Semi-finals '18 and '19.    
    • And many coaches and AD's have the same feeling and that's why when it was offered last cycle to remove the district champs getting top 4 guaranteed they fought it   But if you feel that way you can't them turn around and say the fhsaa isn't ensuring the best matchups are taking place if you also want the district champs to be guaranteed a top 4 seed, just the reality of it (yes I know you didn't say that specifically yourself, I'm just pointing out the flaw in the line of thinking when people out there try to play both ends of the fence)   Just like many of us knew when the Miami district of death was around that Miami Central, Miami Northwestern and Carol City were the best 3 teams in the entire region but only one would have a seed in the top 4
    • I understand your point.   From my perspective, it just shows the fallacy of trying to determine who the "best" teams are before the playoff games have been played.    Again, I see your point, but I'd have a tough time seeding a district runner-up over all the district winners except for one and giving a district runner-up the home-field advantage over all the district winners except for one.  Winning a district ought to count for something and penalizing a district winner (with a lower RPI and, therefor, a seeding worse than a district runner-up) because the other teams in its district had a bad year just doesn't sit right with me.
