If you don't like the outcome... Litigate! Hell, I got cut in 8th grade from football...my dad told me, tough schitt son, work harder and don't give up if you want to make it. You control your own future...now this generation can sue. Sad. TIMES WIRE SERVICE: UNION CITY -- The father of a James Logan High School sophomore seeks $1.5 million in damages and the dismissal of the school's basketball coach after his son didn't make the varsity. Lynn Rubin sued the New Haven Unified School District on Nov. 27 because his son, Jawaan, was told to return to the junior varsity after being asked to try out for varsity. The family had rearranged its schedules to accommodate the varsity team's practice times, the suit said. Coach Blake Chong, who cited a policy limiting sophomores to JV when he cut Jawaan Rubin, didn't consult with the parents before cutting their son, according to the suit. After Jawaan confronted Chong about the decision, he was dropped from the JV team, the suit said. Chong refused comment Monday. Rubin's older son, Janou, starred under Chong at James Logan and is a sophomore guard at UCLA. The father said he calculated the damages based on potential wages lost from his son's possible pro career. What a spoiled generation...the 9mm gen ZZZZZZ.[V] [b][blue]NAKED[/blue][/b]

I liked this line:

This is great!! No I can sue the highschool I went to for not having a Hockey program. Since I had to play house league in stead of Highschool hockey it prevented my ability to be a professional player. I wan tmy $1.5 million in lost revenue back!! Thats it I am calling my lawer, in fact I'll sue him too for not finding out about this first!! [;)] [beer]

WTF? No where is it ever written that they even have to let him try out. What a f'ing loser. My son is Varsity material. Riiiiiiiiight! Its at the coaches disgression and there is nothing that says they even have to give him a reason for being cut. Isn't football an extracuricular activity? When did it become the f'ing end-all, be-all school priority?

Good idea! We didn't have an ice hockey program back home and Jagr makes $10M/year, so I want $10M from the Sierra Sands Unified School District.
