Grimes said in his Sunday post that his team stopped applying full-court defensive pressure after the score reached 25-0 three minutes into the game, then dropped into a relatively benign zone defense and began resting its starters in favor of its three bench players.
"Dallas Academy, renowned for its work with students who have learning disabilities, is winless this season and has not won a game in at least four seasons."
"Cheryl Bugg, whose daughter is one of Covenant's top players, said she didn't want to talk about the firing...
She said the parents of the team's eight players met with school officials Saturday and outlined three goals for the program: 'We want to represent Christ with the highest respect, we don't want to humiliate anyone ever and we want our students to be enthusiastic in everything they do.'"
It would be really super-fucking-keen if some of you wouldn't try to make this into a political or religious issue.
there are no stupid people anymore, everyone has a "learning disorder"
This game is not reflective on religion in the least other than the fact that the people playing the game may have come from a religion.
A parent who attended the game said Covenant continued to make 3-pointers -- even in the fourth quarter. She praised the Covenant players but said spectators and an assistant coach were cheering wildly as their team edged closer to 100 points.
I'm all for defending myself when called out, friend
Further Coach Grimes is an amazing Coach and a devout Christian.
He has helped not just me but “Our family” not just in basketball but also spiritually in my walk to Christ.
Coach is a godly man who has always been selfless and a born servant.
As for the media calling our actions “unchristian”, that is very sad. For this team, and our coach are a living testimony. I am not sorry for how we played that night because I know that no harm was intended and I also know no harm occurred.
Other people in this thread have had the same opinion; why are you fixated on me?
A less charitable person than myself might observe that you are confusing the speck in another's eye for the beam in your own.
