Wonder if the change of coaching techniques is the problem ;)
Hmmm. Interesting thought.

It’s still early in the season.
I saw the Leo game and he was his normal out of control disposition screaming at everything on every play.
Second half he settled down way not him. I wonder if there was a correction implied by someone at halftime.
Apparently there wasn’t any wrongdoing or DCFS and/or school administration would have handled it.

Seems like some people got bent and went out of their way to “get even.” If the school is going to handcuff a coach, they should have just parted ways.

So were the two transfers to Metamora really escorted out of the gym by Washington police at the ToC as a Washington fan told me or was that just a rumor?

I was told by a couple people they were sitting behind the Washington bench and were told to move to a different spot or leave the gym. This was during the game before Washington’s

That little stunt doesn't speak very well of those two boys.

Really those 2 kids r friends with all the kids on the team wouldn’t call that a stunt. Oh and heard brown and his assistant sat behind their coach game 1 at Ottawa...

Really. THey paid, sat down to watch basketball. Shame on the AD. This is out of control that the basketball program trumps everything in WCHS. I have been a lifelong fan and will only go to home football games till the regime changes AD and coach. I found out tonight that this happened from my friends in the neighborhood. Had to comment.

It's hard to respect any of the parties on either side of this drama. The result of a coach left without accountability for too long. Then throw in parents who try to game the system and get mad when they don't get what they think they are owed. It will be interesting to see what happens up north if playing time doesn't work out for said players or they aren't getting enough shots, or coach Grieves hurts their parents feelings. Look for some reale estate for sale in GTH this spring.

I agree. I think everyone involved could do with some self-reflection in this mess, although somehow I don't think that's gonna happen.

I think if you aren’t an eyewitnesses you shouldn’t tell a story heard heard 2nd or more hand. Stories are out there that Herb and Brown got the cops to escort them out to It was before the Washington game and Brown knew nothing about it and neither did Herb and it was the tourney organizers that aren’t school employees. Also the kids were just sitting there minding their own business and politely left to the dads were there and got mouthy with the cops.

It's a bad call if they weren't causing problem. No reason to think they would cause problems either, was there? It's a public forum, probably don't want to make a habit out of discriminatory behavior toward someone because they are not particularly liked by someone in authority. Regardless of who threw them out it still reflects poorly on our WCHS and the basketball program.

Kinda sounds to me like there are some grown ups in Washington acting like children.

It’s a bad call either way, kids accused of something they potentially didn’t do and the AD and coach being accused of things potentially they didn’t do. Nothing official but a lot of I heard.

You are being way too responsible for a message board. ;)

It does seem odd to me they would want to come back to a game at Washington. When I left Pekin to transfer to Washington I had zero desire to ever go back to watch a Pekin game. I hated my coach so much there and couldn’t imagine sitting right behind the Pekin bench during a game. If they hate Brown so much why would you want to sit two feet from him?

It's a great question that probably will never get answered truthfully.

You are assuming the kids hated Brown. Not sure either had much say in what went down with the move.
