Dear Whoever-wrote-this-editorial-and-refused-to-sign-his/her-name:
Look up the definition of "sportsmanship," pal. All your points are laughably backwards. You are flat-out wrong.

By the way,
Sinatra, please use spell check. Are we to conclude that Gorman produces grads who spell "runnersup" with an apostrophe? :-))

Sinatra, You are confusing "jealousy" with "refusing to be bullied." Pointing out obvious disparities is not whining, kiddo. Your "benefactors" can pour all the money they want into Gorman, but then Gorman must play similar schools, not public schools which are publicly funded. You, and others like you, need a refresher course in logic, as well as ethical behavior.

@Grayghost This has been an issue (see Mr. Brewer's article) only since about 2007. Gorman fielded teams with not much success until then.
What makes you think there would be bank statements or check stubs?
As I said, let's compare the family demographics of Gorman star athletes with the rest of the student body.

@Grayghost. Sounds like this would be a great topic for an investigative reporter---are you reading this, Mr. Brewer? Let's see how the family demographics of the starting five Gaels corresponds to the rest of the student body. Let's publish the amount of yearly tuition at BGHS.
I'm "hanging out with this crowd" because I was a three-sport athlete myself, and come from a football family with several members who played and coached in the Big Ten. I grew up in West Michigan where there are extremely strong sanctions against situations like this.
Sir, we are not naive. If students and parents "come forth" with incriminating evidence, they are also incriminating themselves; they may feel uncomfortable about allowing the police or courts into their lives.
Check your math. "A dozen a year" would take how many years to total "hundreds" now attending public schools?
