Happenings in Rabbitland? in High School Sports Posted April 6 57 minutes ago, chubbychecker said: In my experience, when someone starts saying "politics" are the reason a kid isn't playing, that actually means "my kid isn't any good but I am politicking to get him some playing time and it didn't work, so now I am blaming politics." My kids came thru several years ago and were average at best athletes and I admit that. I have a relative that is a senior this year and got a lot of playing time in football this year. That’s not the issue. The issue is the politics that has been played over the last decade has taken away success from any Atlanta kid. That’s where I’m bothered by it. It hasn’t changed and the same people that are connected pull strings to get their kids to play at all costs and gladly watch the team go 0-10 just so theirs got to play. Our community has a ton of athletes each year but none stands up to the blatant politics and it’s frustrating to see it continue on year after year.
