According to Peter Burns of ESPN, students and fans attending high school games in Wisconsin are going to need to watch what they chant. Via the report, these new rules are being inforced by the Wisconsin Interscholastic Athletic Association.
On Tuesday January 12th, Burns sent out this tweet:
You can no longer say the words “Air ball, scoreboard” at Wisconsin High School games according to the @wiaawi. Hurts kids feelings. WOW.— Peter Burns (@PeterBurnsESPN) January 12, 2016
It was followed up with this one:
Other words and phrases the @wiaawi won’t allow to be used at High school basketball games. “Fundamentals” “Sieve” “We can’t hear you”— Peter Burns (@PeterBurnsESPN) January 12, 2016
Is this taking things too far, or do you think this is a good idea?
