This is the first story I have ever seen posted on here that came from the Associated Press that had nothing to do with a professional team on this website. Just curious as to what criteria needs to be met for this to happen. I see quite a few stories that I think people on here would find interesting but never post links because I want to keep it kind of related to football/sports in the SEMO region.
I do not know who posted it to the news headline on the home page but I like something different every once in a while so if you find more interesting or discussable topics please share them. Sometimes we get on the same subject here and beat it until the next week rolls around.
Where's the link to the article?
Jolly, on the home page of this site and in the middle where it says "Headlines". The headline reads: "DANGER: Doctors say cheerleading needs safety rules".
Interesting article. MSHSAA does require physicals and has several safety rules for the sideline cheerleaders at football and basketball games. I know one big one that prevents our girls from doing stunts at home games deals with "unstable" surfaces. Our track still has a chat surface, so under the rules they can't stunt on it. However that can on the basketball court and usually have some extra pads laid down for an added measure.
Yeah I would like to see articles about concussions and things like that too. I read one a week ago where there were like 5 concussed players on a pop warner team and they kept playing the game even though they did not have the required amount of kids on the field. Better judgement should have stepped in and stopped the game because one team was way outnumbered on the field making it more dangerous for the teams. In the end both coaches were suspended and all three referees were permanently banned from the league.
