This may be an emotional article written with frustration, but it makes some excellent points. Hopefully, those in charge of making the decisions that govern PHAC, will regroup and get it right for next year. Many fans and the players that they support, were dealt a great injustice by some quick decisions that weren't thoroughly given much thought. People in power need to know what they are doing and that includes fair decisions made under time constraints and difficult circumstances. I understand the concern of the one superintendent for his students but that seemed to be negated after hearing he allowed his wrestling team to travel in the snow. At that point, PHAC needed to step up and make the correct call which in my opinion they did not.

Chris, While I understand your feelings on this situation, and I agree that it is a rule that should be changed. I am disappointed that you would print advocating breaking a rule because it is a bad rule. I understand advocating for change but Chris you are a well respected member of the media. You are in my opinion a champion of the high school athlete. As coaches though we strive to empress on our athletes how important it is to abide by the rules. These same athletes respect what you write and talk about your stories and editorials among themselves. It serves no good purpose for coaches to have the press going around saying that rules are meant to be broken. I feel that this was written with a great deal of frustration on your part. I learned long ago after a very frustrating game to cool off before you talk. I just feel that you should have advocated for change of the rule not breaking the rule. Thank you Tim Frazier
