WHUT?! Georgia Youth Football Teaching 8-year Olds To Fail

League responds to 8-year-old's $500 touchdown

Posted: Oct 23, 2014 8:54 PM EST Updated: Oct 24, 2014 2:15 PM EST


Parents of Lawrenceville Black Knights players told CBS46 News their team was fined after one of their players scored a touchdown violating the league's mercy rule.

The Gwinnett Football League president said that's not the truth.

Erik Richards said the team made a mockery of the game by laying on the ground, running off the field and mocking the other players. Richards said in essence, they showed unsportsmanlike conduct.

It was on Saturday that parents told CBS46's Mike Paluska they were beating Collins Hill, 32-0, in the fourth quarter when a player intercepted a pass and in the excitement of the moment forgot about the league's mercy rule.

That touchdown passed the 33-point rule and cost the coach a weeklong suspension and the team $500.

"We were all super excited, he was beyond excited and we were fined for it," Brooke Burdett said. It was Burdett's son, Elijah Burrell, who caught the pass.

"He had no idea. This is his first year. This was his first touchdown. He is an 8-year-old boy making a pick-six."


Wow, I've lived in Georgia off and on for 30 years, including several in Lawrenceville and Gwinnett county, and I'd never heard of that stupidity before.

I understand a rule for kids that young that is supposed to prevent INTENTIONALLY running up a score, because it teaches bad sportsmanship and might discourage impressionable kids from continuing to play the game.

But that's not even what happened; you can't tell 8-year olds to keep track of the score and do math problems while playing, and telling a kid that has just made a great play that he has to fail on purpose by falling on the ball instead of doing what's natural, advancing the ball as far as possible, sends an even worse message.

They're going to get hammered over that decision, suspension, and fine... simply outrageous.

Breaking: FSU, Police Complicit In Hampering Winston Investigation

Documents: Police, FSU hampered Jameis Winston investigation

Florida State University officials and Tallahassee police took steps to both hide, and then hinder, the criminal investigation into a rape allegation against the school's Hesiman-trophy winning quarterback Jameis Winston last fall, a FOX Sports investigation has found.

The upshot: University administrators and Winston’s attorney, Tim Jansen, had a head start on the state attorney in Tallahassee responsible for investigating and prosecuting serious crimes. Florida State administrators, for instance, had all the police reports at least four days before State Attorney Willie Meggs was handed the case.

After learning in December of 2013 that no charges would be filed, FOX Sports examined thousands of pages of documents -- including law enforcement files, e-mails and other correspondence as well as video and audio interviews conducted by detectives and other records --  through a series of requests filed with multiple agencies under Florida's public records laws.


It's always the cover-up that gets you.

Seriously, though, great, hard-fought game; and I'd like to thank UT for forcing Muschamp to finally make a change at QB.
