    Since you brought it up... can you imagine Eisenhower forbidding D-Day until there was a guarantee of 0 deaths? Now stepping back from the hyperbole, I agree there is not much of a plan. The biggest problem is that people can’t even agree what constitutes facts. We have 2-3 months domestically and 4-5 months worldwide of data, yet we will not form policy decisions based upon it. A 15-24 year old is more likely to die in a car crash, homicide, or from suicide than COVID-19. That is true based on statistical data. But post that and see how many angered responses you get, all using it to justify their opinion.

    "The recommendations presented in this document are intended as ideas for state associations to consider with their respective SMACs and other stakeholders in designing return-to-activity guidelines that will be in accordance with state or local restrictions. Please note that the phases of “opening up” outlined below are based upon the White House document released in April 2020. Consult your state and local health departments to review if they are using a similar approach, or how the phases in this document correspond to your state or local governments nomenclature." So based on this quote above the NFHS document somewhat follows the National and Indiana guidelines for the first three phases. To me, it clearly is not a document intended for guidance all the way to August.

    That explains why you, Trojandad attack me, gonzo and dante now doesn't it? Ignorance is a virus. Once it starts spreading, it can only be cured by reason and thats not good because you and trojandad don't understand reasoning or logic. free advice. This might help you and trojandad. It is better to let people think you are stupid than to type it out and show you are stupid.

    Good news. The old Region Sports message board is back up in running after a long hiatus. It’d be nice to get that place going again and talk Region football with a larger group of people. I know guys like DT and Tommy and Coach Nowlin used to post on there, so come on back. Folks like Gipper and Bobref will probably enjoy it as well. Coach E had already returned. Here’s the link - http://www.forums.regionsports.com/viewforum.php?f=4 Thanks!

    probably the most frustrating with all this.......is that here are no real plans in place.....just suggestions. we almost will be ending up re-defining what is meant by insanity (doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results) nobody will do the things necessary based upon a suggestion.......can you imagine a teacher handing out homework and saying turn it in if you want.......very few, if any will turn it in! would feel better with a solid plan/policy in place. I guess have to quit watching WW II movies.........just can't imagine Ike telling the troops at Normandy that Omaha beach is just a suggestion! just feels like a fire drill in which we got the kids out of the school because we smelled smoke.......the fire department never arrived.......so now that the building is fully engulfed with fire....let's enter back into the building again. no more prepared than when we left

    I’d say it’s too close to call on the number of gaffes. They’re both pretty consistent at it.

    To be fair, Joe has had a LOT more time in public office to pile up the stats on gaffes. The ones in the video I posted from his 88 campaign are classic.. 😀 Now, if we want to compare the quality of the gaffes.....could be fun. 😂

    Never made an age comment. Trump doesn't compare to the number of Biden's gaffes. Not remotely close. Are all of these sources hypocrites? Lot more out there....just type "biden gaffes" into your favorite search engine. Look, either accept Joe has his challenges public speaking or don't.

    I would also assume that the remaining seven HHC schools would resume a round-robin schedule. Since BNL already plays THS, there wouldn't be room for Madison. By Indiana standards 🙂

    Indeed. BNL is a long way from Madison. Conference affiliation should not mean long bus rides. Although it would be bad on a Friday night, think of other sports such as volleyball and wrestling whose matches are held during the school week.

    Just from my perspective, I don’t see them wanting to play FC anymore, because they haven’t had any Athletic success against us recently. I can say the same for the other 2 River Schools against them. However, due to proximity, those might be teams they will want to keep. Jennings County as well. BNL is a LONG way away from Madison.

    Are you really a moderator? If so, I am taken back a little. I get you are trying to deflect to me. The difference is I own it. I am be rough on people that are rough on me. I admit it. You won't admit it and that's ok. I shared with you a perception that after your repeated requests to "calm down the tone", you then selectively went after someone that you have a history of going after. You can deny that...FINE! I don't care. Either accept the feedback that is seems like you are selective or don't. Good grief man....please tell me that you are not a moderator and Howe had that incorrect.....

    https://www.washingtonpost.com/local/public-safety/michael-flynns-attorneys-appeal-court-order-that-allows-outside-groups-retired-federal-judge-to-argue-against-tossing-guilty-plea/2020/05/19/9e8e014c-99dc-11ea-a282-386f56d579e6_story.html Michael Flynn’s attorneys asked an appeals court on Tuesday to order a federal judge to dismiss the conviction of President Trump’s former national security adviser. Flynn’s lawyers also asked the appeals court in Washington to reverse the judge’s order allowing outside groups and a retired federal judge to argue against the Justice Department’s request to toss the case. U.S. District Judge Emmet G. Sullivan last week paused Flynn’s case to hear from interested parties and appointed former New York federal judge John Gleeson to argue against the government request. Sullivan also asked Gleeson to examine whether the former three-star general may have committed perjury while pleading guilty to lying about his pre-inauguration contacts with Russia’s ambassador. In a 44-page filing to the U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit, Flynn’s lawyers accused Sullivan of bias and acting at “loggerheads” with recent Supreme Court precedent. Sidney Powell and Flynn’s other attorneys also asked that the case be reassigned for any future proceedings. “The egregious Government misconduct, and the three-year abuse of General Flynn and his family, cry out for ending this ordeal immediately and permanently,” Powell wrote. “The district judge’s orders reveal his plan to continue the case indefinitely, rubbing salt in General Flynn’s open wound from the Government’s misconduct and threatening him with criminal contempt.” The Justice Department on May 7 moved to toss out the guilty plea of the highest-ranking Trump adviser convicted in special counsel Robert S. Mueller III’s Russia investigation. The department concluded that Flynn should never have been interviewed by the FBI and therefore his lies concealing his Russian contacts were immaterial to any crime. Critics dispute the department’s move, saying it distorted facts and appeared to serve the president’s personal political interests by giving an aide impunity to lie to government investigators. Flynn pleaded guilty to lying in an FBI interview on Jan. 24, 2017, to conceal conversations with Sergey Kislyak, Russia’s ambassador at the time. The conversations involved talks before Trump took office about avoiding U.S. sanctions and other policies imposed late in Barack Obama’s administration after Russia interfered in the 2016 presidential election. In a declassified email released Tuesday by Senate Republicans, former national security adviser Susan E. Rice noted concern in Obama’s White House about the frequency of Flynn’s contacts with Kislyak and that the then-FBI director said sharing classified information with him could “potentially” be an issue. Obama emphasized that the handling of the Russia investigation should be done by the book, Rice wrote in a note to herself on Jan. 20, 2017, which was Inauguration Day. In their filing Tuesday, Flynn’s lawyers said prosecutors, not judges, have the authority to decide how to handle pending criminal charges. Judges, they said, may not “change the issues in the case by inviting or appointing” others to perform the executive branch’s duties to investigate or prosecute. “A district court cannot deny the Government’s motion to dismiss because the judge has ‘a disagreement with the prosecution’s exercise of charging authority,’ they said. “Nor should a court second-guess the Government’s ‘conclusion that additional prosecution or punishment would not serve the public interest.’” In asking that the case be reassigned, Flynn’s defense criticized Sullivan for suggesting at a December 2018 hearing that Flynn may have committed “treason,” before correcting himself, and for saying the former general had “sold [his] country out.” “This is an umpire who has decided to steal public attention from the players and focus it on himself,” Powell wrote. “He wants to pitch, bat, run bases, and play shortstop. In truth, he is way out in left field.” The filing also suggests that the retired judge Sullivan appointed is not impartial because of an opinion piece by Gleeson that appeared in The Washington Post. In the article, Gleeson questioned the Justice Department’s move to dismiss the case against Flynn and suggested that the court “assess the credibility of the department’s stated reasons for abruptly reversing course.” Flynn’s attorneys petitioned the appeals court for a writ of mandamus, used when no other relief is available, that requires a party to show “clear and indisputable” right to reverse error by a court. Meeting that high bar may be difficult because the judge has not made a decision yet on the Justice Department’s request, but has appointed a retired judge to advise him now that the government has decided to drop the case. In abandoning the nearly three-year-old case, the Justice Department cited recently uncovered FBI records showing that the bureau had decided to close a counterintelligence investigation of Flynn — dubbed Operation Razor — before learning of his December 2016 calls with Kislyak. The Justice Department also said the FBI knew from transcripts that the calls probably did not give rise to a crime by themselves and that FBI officials differed over how to handle or interpret his actions. Legal analysts and those involved in the case vigorously dispute the Justice Department’s claims as an attempt to please the president and attack his adversaries. Critics of Attorney General William P. Barr’s decision argued that the FBI had ample legitimate grounds to investigate Flynn’s lies, which went to the heart of the investigation into whether Trump’s campaign coordinated with Russia’s interference in the election. Flynn admitted under oath three times before two federal judges that he gave false statements to the FBI as well as to the White House. Federal law criminalizes lying in any matter under court, congressional or executive branch jurisdiction. Seriously, critics notwithstanding - in what what court of law can a judge (after both the prosecutor and the defendant BOTH determine to drop a case brought before it) determine he/she can exact prosecution on the defendant? Isn't a judge.....a judge? IMHO - This guy needs to be thrown off the bench.
