    ME Football Controversy

    Guys, it’s not too hard to think of at least one reason that the player is still ineligible due to something out of the district’s control. Use your noggin.

    NYSPHSAA TRANSFER RULE A. A student in grades 9-12 who transfers, with a corresponding change in residence of his/her parents (or other person with whom the student has resided for at least six months) shall become eligible after starting regular attendance in the second school. A residence change must involve a move from one school district to another. Furthermore, when a student moves from one public school district to another public school district, for athletic eligibility, the student must enroll in the public school district or in a private school within that district’s boundaries of his/her parents’ residency. For athletic eligibility, a residency is changed when one is abandoned by the immediate family and another residency is established through action and intent. Residency requires one’s physical presence as an inhabitant and the intent to remain indefinitely The Superintendent, or designee, will determine if the student has met district residence requirements. B. A student who transfers without a corresponding change in residence of his/her parents (or other persons with whom the student has resided for at least six months) is ineligible to participate in any interscholastic athletic contest in a particular sport for a period of one (1) year if, as a 9-12 grade student, participated in that sport during the one (1) year period immediately preceding his/her transfer. Students who transfer from any school to the public school district of the residence of his/her parents (or other persons with whom the student has resided for a at least six months) or a private school within that district’s boundaries shall be exempt from the Transfer Rule. That type of a transfer without penalty will only be permitted once in a high school career. NOTE: A student in a foreign exchange program listed by CSIET has a one-year waiver of the Transfer Rule. If such a student elects to stay a second year he/she becomes a foreign student at the start of the school year with item (B) in effect. Exemptions to (B): For athletic eligibility a student must enroll in the public school district or in a nonpublic school within that district’s boundaries of his/her parent’s residency. 1. The student reaches the age of majority and establishes residency in a district and can substantiate that they are independent and self-supporting. 2. If a private or parochial school ceases to operate, a student may transfer to another private or parochial school of his/her choice. Otherwise, a student must enroll in the public school district of his/her parents’ residency. 3. A student who is a ward of the court or state and is placed in a district by court order. Guardianship does not fulfill this requirement. 4. A student from divorced or “legally” separated parents who moves into a new school district with one of the aforementioned parents. Such a transfer is allowed once every six months. The legal separation agreement must address custody, child support, spousal support and distribution of assets and be filed with the County Clerk or issued by a Judge. 5. A student who is declared homeless by the Superintendent pursuant to commissioner’s Regulation 100.2. 6. A student of a military employee who is transferred to an active military base may enroll in the non-public school closest to their residence and maintain eligibility if the student enrolls in a nonpublic school immediately following the change in residence. NOTE: It is provided, however, that each school shall have the opportunity to petition the Section involved to approve transfer without penalty based on an undue hardship for the student. C. Transfer students trying out for sports before school opens in the fall shall register and be accepted by the principal of that school before the medical examination and the first practice. This shall constitute the start of the regular attendance for fall sports. NOTE: After approval by the school medical officer, a student may practice immediately and must satisfy the specific Sports Standard according to the number of practice sessions required. D. Practices at the previous school may be counted toward the minimum number of practices required provided the principal or athletic director of the previous school submits, in writing, the number and dates of such practices to the principal or athletic director of the new school. E. 7th and 8th graders who compete at the HS level will be subject to the transfer rule in “that” sport, effective with the 2017-2018 school year.

    I was given the OK to Tweet the information, but about an hour later I was asked by the same Section 4 official to delete it, which I promptly did.

    I misread the handbook. All four do indeed make the playoffs.

    Not necessarily. Just 3 B teams make the playoffs this year. So they’d have to beat Windsor next week to get in.

    YOU said “JC AD ratted them out.”. That’s Paske. I did not mean you blame Paske. I clearly said the M-E AD is to blame. As we both said, it’s the kids that suffer.

    ME Football Controversy

    You do realize Paske, the JC AD, is also the Section 4 Football Chairman right? Don’t toss this on him or anyone from any other school. If this is a legitimate violation place it solely on the shoulders of M-E’s AD and no one else. This happened in another sport in this section not too long ago so the AD’s should know how to dot ALL the i’s and cross all the t’s on transfers. Let’s just hope there was not a violation and nothing comes of it. The kid’s certainly do not deserve this. If there was a violation, then the loss of W’s is warranted unfortunately, and the kids suffer because an adult did not do his job completely.

    Alec Baldwin shoots, kills woman on movie set

    Sorry but none of this is funny. A life was lost and lives have been devastated.

    From the reliable sources I have, it’s true, but M-E is challenging it. I suspect nothing will be definitive for several days.

    Alec Baldwin shoots, kills woman on movie set

    Yes, they do. Not all of them, but many do. The big question is why even have real bullets on a movie set?

    Vestal walk way along 434

    Loooong before this insipid project was on the drawing board I envisioned the river side of that stretch to be cleared of trees and vegetation for a spectacular view of the river and farside riverbank/trees. Seen many such views in other cities. Of course many would object to such a teardown of trees and I respect that.
  15. The newspapers used to of course but now with staff cuts galore they can’t do it. if I were retired I’d offer to do the major sports for Varsity, though I’ve been asked to do it for all the sections upstate and have been asked to do the state rankings in football, but again I’d have to be retired. This is the page at my website that I am most proud of . I wish someone would do the same for hoops. https://www.section4football.com/stateplayoffs/byteam.html
  16. For V football you can find them at this link. https://www.section4football.com/2021/2021standings.html I update them the evening of gamedays. As for the other sports, I am unsure if section4hoops.com still operates. other sports, V & JV, I doubt anywhere.

    They probably misheard “signpost up ahead” as “sidewalk up ahead.”

    Binghamton High Varsity Football Coach Job Posted

    Notre Dame (Elmira) just re-hired the guy who was their head coach from 1971 to 1974 and again in 1981. He’s 75 now if I recall correctly.

    8/21 BU is back

    I actually had two automated phone calls to my landline seconds apart “warning” me that BU students were arriving to campus today and that the area “should be avoided” including 201S. That was a first for me, phone calls to my land line on a traffic alert.

    Where are all the lids and caps??

    Can’t remember exactly when, but the USA Today had a feature article in the past year that due to the pandemic and people being home that people were making gardens in very high numbers and the same with canning.
  22. Thanks for straightening my ass out Bill. Christ, the one I mentioned read happened on the 16th early morning. Garo’s report was Saturday night. I gotta stop posting shortly after waking up…obviously my brain pills hadn’t kicked in yet.
  23. WNBF reports the police said 4 casings were found. Which is it, 4 or “25 to 30”?

    Garner needs to F*#@ off!

    And by the way Common Sense, Google Dr Ryan N Cole from that 5-month old https://www.bitchute.com/video/TsdTTHJteilw/ video. There’s a reason he’s an independent doctor. There’s a reason they call some doctors a quack.

    >>And for the record, I can guaranTEE you I have researched the validity of this "pandemic" more TODAY than you've done in a year and a half, << Big assumption there dude. Almost ALL I did from last September thru February was researching, reading and watching news on this. Not CNN (which I dedpise), not Fox, not CBS nor NBC, but newscasts/newspapers from France, Spain, England, Japan, Germany, Greece and others. I was homebound from seven hospitalizations and two surgeries for nearly six months. Spent a ton of time on the COVID topic. It IS a pandemic. Ask people from THOSE countries. Governments world-wide don’t push a false pandemic. It’s real. I’m done with this. Assuming you are unvaccinated (hoping that is NOT the case), I wish you well if you get COVID, I do not wish it on anyone.
