CAMERON -The Cameron High School community is questioning a controversial call made at a Friday night game that resulted in a senior football player being ejected from the game and suspended for two games, with one of those games being “Senior Night.”Senior Dalton Wood was ejected from the Cameron-Beallsville game after a referee accused him of kicking an opposing player who was laying on the ground. However, due to a video of the alleged incident circulating on social media, many say they fail to see the supposed kick.
Making some residents even more upset is that there is no appeals process for ejections from games in West Virginia and Ohio.
For starters, I’m not an avid football watcher but to me – it doesn’t look like a kick. What it looks like is that he was trying to push himself up by pushing his leg out for thrust. But …that’s not the purpose of this particular blog entry. The purpose is the outrage from the local community over an alleged KICK as opposed to let’s say…CONVICTED RAPE. I don’t think it’s a stretch for me to feel a wee bit aggravated at the number of commenters who are voicing their opinion about this suspension when just a short 50 miles up the river, there is a school that has a registered sex offender being applauded and glorified as he runs across the field every Friday night.
