“Pres. Obama: God doesn’t like Ugly…”

Oh wow…

This is ugly…  Little League Baseball has stripped the U.S. championship from Chicago-based Jackie Robinson West and suspended its coach for violating a rule prohibiting the use of players who live outside the geographic area that the team represents, it was announced Wednesday…  The Jackie Robinson West Little League team was ruled to have used players from outside its local area by recruiting players from neighboring districts…  http://espn.go.com/chicago/story/_/id/12308988/little-league-strips-chicago-team-us-championship-suspends-coachchi_a_jrw_600x400

God doesn’t like ugly…  Kids stripped of their title several months after all the lights went out at the ball park is ridiculous… The league had the time from when the team played – their “first game” until the time the last out of the “final game” – to suspend/terminate any or all these players, but once the umpire left the field the game is over…

God doesn’t like ugly…

So why didn’t the National Football League STRIP the Patriots of their championship title when the question of the balls came up???  Letmesee – the game was over, the Referee had gone home,  and the lights were out in the stadium – well before “deflate gate”  came to light…
These are kids who the Little League Organization let down by calling the game several months after the lights went out at the ball park…  

This is just wrong…

Wow…  The Little League organization did something similar in 2001 – Rolando Paulino Little League, Bronx, New York, is disqualified. 021115-Danny-Almonte-Rolando-Paulino-All-Stars-Bronx-Little-League-baseball-PI.vadapt.955.high.0Birth records in the Dominican Republic show that pitcher Danny Almonte is 14, too old to play in the Little League division. Further investigation also shows that Almonte did not live within the league’s boundaries and that he did not participate in the required number of regular-season games before the international tournament. The league is forced to forfeit its third-place finish and all records — including a perfect game thrown by Almonte — are erased. http://a2.fssta.com/…/021115-Danny-Almonte-Rolando-Paulino-…

My major complaint is that the League seems to find more pleasure in stripping titles from young people – adversely affecting them for life instead of doing their due diligence to properly vet each player before things get to that point…  It appears that the league did their job in 2002 – SpencerWhite-2002MARegionGroup-500pxLittle League officials investigate charges that the Harlem Little League team, which won the Mid-Atlantic Regional and advanced to the Little League World Series, illegally used players who live outside the league’s boundaries. Harlem league officials produce documents confirming their residency… http://www.littleleague.org/…/SpencerWhite-2002MARegionGrou…

I am just saying I believe that when the League gets it wrong or just like in the Patriot’s Championship game against the Colts – if the referee didn’t call the game during the game then the rest is history…  These are kids that don’t get paid to leave it all on the field but they do it for the love of the game and the spirit of competition…  Winning the championship was the highest  point in some of these kids life…  Some of these kids probably came home to little of nothing except the great feeling of accomplishment…  

I believe it is wrong from all fronts…  God doesn’t like ugly…

I have played a lot of sports in high school – winning and losing but never dashed like these kids…

I hope you feel me on this…

    I believe that these kids should be given back their trophy, their title and their honor… If anyone is to be punished it should be the adults that did not do their jobs correct and properly…
