Diboll cancelling sports this week

Recommended Posts

Apparently, COVID 19 is no hoax. 

Diboll has cancelled athletics the rest of the week.

Hopefully they can keep the school open. I'm still wondering how this social distancing is going to work in a collision sport? and with the long weekend coming up, will the case numbers start going up when. we get closer to district and 5A/6A start?

Based on the closed UIL thread, I'm not sure we're going to finish the season. Let's enjoy it while it lasts. Wear your masks this weekend if you're able to go.

Well, there were a number of collision contests this past week involving teams under our umbrella and so far, Diboll is the only one to has had to cancel because of COVID exposure with no evidence that tracing shows that it was due to exposure with another player who had it.

Sure they won't be the only one, but it is not time to play Chicken Little yet.

Noone has tested positive as of yet in Diboll.  This is how this crap works.  All the media outlets calling us as we played them last Saturday about what are we going to do.  Schools calling our next opponent asking if we have cancelled.  They have had noone (O)  test positive as of yet and we have had no kids miss practice or feel ill thus far.  Not saying that either cannot happen in the next few days, but is the sky falling yet where they want all of us to cancel because some kids dont feel good and one cant taste.  An official called here and told us the supt called the officials chapter and there were 6 positive cases and they were panicked and that was not the case at all.  They are concerned of a possible exposure and a gathering in which a large group attended saturday evening and everyone wants to make it bigger than what it actually is at this date and time.  There are protocols to follow and communication lines in place and people watchng these kids each day and screening them for symptoms.  You don't just call every sick kid a covid case and run to all the social media outlets and the news stations and give them something to sensationalize.  Maybe they do have a covid case, maybe a couple but as of today noone knows and they have quarantined.

P.S. No kid has missed practice in Madisonville and or has even the slightest case of the sniffles.  Madisonville vs. Liberty this Friday  Prayers to Diboll that none of the illness is Covid related and they all feel better and are playing again soon!

Well, it's the third school within a week that's called a timeout.  And isn't Diboll considered Setxsports coverage area due to who they play?

I'm not saying the sky is falling, yet. But we have a long weekend coming up and kids ain't very good at social distancing, such as the above mentioned party that may be the source of Diboll's pause. Colleges aren't doing much better either.

It'll be interesting to see how this is handled when district play starts. No way all the teams in this coverage area stay COVID free.

Well, I wonder how many times the following will happen:

Fairfield, who had a player showing COVID-like symptoms, canceled its scheduled game with Brownsboro on Friday.  Brownsboro finds a replacement in Sweetwater and will play in Aledo this Friday.

Test comes back on the player with symptoms.......NEGATIVE.  Now Fairfield is scrambling for an opponent for this weekend because they canceled even though they didn't have a confirmed positive.

The clock needs to strike midnight and the magic Covid needs to fade away.  Collective hysteria. Nothing but nonsense everywhere.  We are being conditioned for future acts of tyranny in this country and people are willingly happy to surrender away their freedoms.  The cure is worse than the threat.

 I am embarrassed to have taught for over 3 decades and NOT accomplished a goal of having my students as adults able to read and decipher charts and graphs.

I was for postponing extracurriculars so we could focus on the primary goal of schools, educating our children. 

Put on a mask. It's not for you, it's for your fellow citizens. it's going to be the only way to finish this season and get to a vaccine. 

Your views on masks are selfish and stupid.

If  they are following/obeying the guidelines set by the UIL and State/TEA this should not be a issue. Just because you have one sick,  or even tests positive for Covid-19 does not mean you have or even need to cancel. If a player is masked when not actively participating in a drill or activity, that limits contact.

Really its not the extra-circular nor schools that are the problem. They are regulated, controlled, and sanitized daily for the most part.  Its the interaction of students OUTSIDE of school. I see people complain about Covid and yet allow their kid to go to friends house, go to party's, go out after school. These are the danger areas not school!

I don’t think it’s the ability to decipher charts and graphs.  The question is if you believe the data and a corrupt media.  Not everyone does.

Exactly! Why haven’t we locked them all up yet? We could have a giant teen only city, they could all get sick, become immune (mostly) and become non-spreaders and return to regular life in about 6 months to a year. Talk about Chicken Little, lol.

you need to change your name to sheeps pride.

you views and ignorance are why we are where we are today. 

if your mask work then it will protect you just fine and you don't need to worry about me.

if not go crawl back in your hole and hide from the big bad covid and unmasked people..

either covid is dangerous and we shut down ALL extracurricular activities or it is not so dangerous and we open things up.

you can't have it both ways

No one on the football team Varsity or JV level has tested positive for COVID as of today

The baddest man on the planet, The Rock, caught COVID and struggled with it.

No one likes masks. No one like quarantine. No one likes social distancing. But if we want to have a chance to return to normalcy, let alone have a football season, wear a cotdarn mask in public.

The powers that be said play ball, despite the dangers, so at this point we all got to do our part to make this is as safe a possible for all participants. That includes wearing masks. So that's what we need to do.

Last week, the kids had to wear their masks on a hot bus 2 hours to the middle of nowhere, play a game in 100 degree heat, get back on the bus with masks and endure another 2 hour ride home so we can have our football. 

And they'll do it again this Friday, and every Friday they're able to. The players, the bands, the coaches and schools are all doing their part so old farts like us can have a season to discuss on various message boards.

The only thing being asked of you is to put on a mask and you can't be bothered.

If the season ends early,  people like you are going to be a big reason why it's called off. Grow up. Put on a mask.

You're a selfish jerk. I'd say worse but I don't feel like having my account suspended before the game.

If the season ends early,  idiots like you are going to be a big reason why it's called off. Grow up. Put on a mask.

you are comical........thanks for the laugh

you still don't get it but why should i expect you to.

hope to see you at the games.

i will be the one not wearing a mask...... lol

Who said it was a hoax?  The reaction is the hoax... being killed in a plane crash isn't a hoax either.  Doesn't stop people from continuing their lives.

I feel sorry for the schools and kids that are held hostage by all of this.

    • Ah yes, the Obamacare ruling. I do think that he very likely will rule to keep Roe v. Wade in full effect because of stare decisis but I also think there is a chance that he might side with modifying it. The Mississippi law does not exactly go against part of Roe v. Wade anyway. That decision says that the state cannot restrict abortions at all within the first trimester but the current Mississippi law at 15 weeks prohibiting abortion is outside the first trimester. In the second trimester Roe went by viability standard and potentially some other issues. In the last trimester is take it out right now and abortions period. Planned Parenthood v. Casey actually overturned some parts of Roe already. Sotomayor made one of the most stupid comments by saying that people will think the Court is political. Basically you cannot vote against Roe v. Wade because of politics. Apparently she has not read some of her own decisions if she thinks politics does not enter into it. I agree that it should not but she of all people is being hypocritical to the max.
    • This may or may not be interesting to some people. I thought about this when talking about incidents in Orange County and Port Arthur. It is about police jurisdiction in Texas. Neither the Texas Penal Code nor the Code of Criminal Procedures (CCP) (which lists the authority to arrest) distinguishes between on and off duty peace officers. It states in what situations a peace officer has the authority to make an arrest but makes no other distinction. That is why people often say that Texas peace officers are on duty 24 hours a day. The law is not stated in those words but the Texas law does not note any kind of difference. The authority to make an arrest by a Texas peace officer is continuous. The CCP under authority to arrest without a warrant (Chapter 14) extends to outside the officer’s jurisdiction except class C traffic charges (basic citations like speeding, running stop sign , etc.) which authority is only “if the offense is committed in the county or counties in which the municipality employing the peace officer is located”. So the CCP gives the authority to arrest as anywhere except for traffic citations which is limited to anywhere in the county that the officer works. Port Arthur has jurisdiction then for traffic citations anywhere in Jefferson or Orange County. If a citation (or arrest) is made in those situations, the officer who is outside of his city has to issue the citation to the proper county precinct. For example a Port Arthur officer can issue a traffic citation in Bridge City but has to issue it in the jurisdiction of the Orange County Justice of the Peace for that precinct. An even further distance example is for instance if a Port Arthur officer was driving through Little Cypress to speak with a witness about something and saw somebody run a stop sign. The officer has the authority to issue a citation to that person or even make an arrest and bring the person to the Orange County jail.  The CCP also says that if a business serves the public it “may not prohibit or otherwise restrict a peace officer or special investigator from carrying on the establishment's premises a weapon that the peace officer or special investigator is otherwise authorized to carry, regardless of whether the peace officer or special investigator (a special investigator under Texas law is a federal agent such as FBI, DEA, etc.) is engaged in the actual discharge of the officer's or investigator's duties while carrying the weapon”. Note that it is regardless if the officer is engaged to an actual discharge of duty. That is basically saying off duty. The NFL a few years ago made a rule that firearms were prohibited in their stadiums by anyone except for an on duty police officer. But…. that does not apply in Texas as officers have 24 hour arrest authority anywhere in the state and that specific law that I quoted above which says it is against the law to stop them from entering. So off duty Texas peace officers can watch Dallas Cowboys or Houston Texans football games while carrying their off-duty handgun. To my knowledge that is the only NFL stadiums in the country where a police officers can carry their weapons off duty. The stadiums have a special point of entry at one of the entrance gates where on duty officers hired to work the event check the credentials of the off duty officer and note where the officer will be sitting. I have also done that at Minute Maid stadium for MLB.  So….. in Texas pretty much a cop is a cop no matter when or where. Game wardens, city police, county sheriffs and deputies, constables and deputies, school district police, DA investigator, fire department arson investigators, etc., are all listed as Peace Officers and even though they are hired to do a specific job, they have overall police powers. It is not that way in all states which sometimes distinguish between on and off duty, jurisdiction and what laws they can enforce. In Texas as an example a Texas game warden can make a traffic stop just as if he was a city police officer or a DPS trooper and make an arrest for DWI. City officer can likewise go into an alcohol licensed premises and enforce Texas Alcohol Beverage Commission laws just as if he was state TABC agent. In fact I was inspecting a bar one time and the bartender got in my way and told me to stop. He said that I did not have the authority to make  the inspection since I was not a TABC agent. I explained the law to him and said I was not going to interfere with his business but I was going to make my inspection. Twice more he interfered with my inspection so I arrested him on the spot. TABC suspended the bar’s alcohol license for 14 days (think of the money they lost) and the bartender received 14 days in the county jail for the interference.  Interesting? Not interesting? I do not always agree with the laws just as much as anyone else but I think the way that it functions is interesting. 
    • If it doesn't kill ya it'll make you stronger, the old saying goes.    Who knows? Maybe an efficient and very good slow down team, like Argyle, catches FF napping in the playoffs.
    • Back in the day when Beaumont had Central & Ozen a good Silsbee team could and did run the table in the golden triangle.  Now, with most of the talent headed to BU it is next to impossible to pull that off again.   P.S  Living in the past, I miss Devon McCain pulling a rebound and then coming down hill center court, with superior passing skills, throwing dimes to either  Bush or Jay5. Or he'd take it to the hole himself.  At the high school level that was very potent stuff.    
    • Silsbee is a great team but lets not get to far ahead, Bush, Adams or McCain isn't walking through that door next Tuesday, And even if they did I don't think any of them would be the best player on the court honestly.  But that's Okay, like another poster stated, the main thing for Silsbee is to get better each week and compete for a 4A title.  I do think it will be a very competitive game, and I love that we have two top ranked teams in the State right here in SETX.  Here's to an injury free and successful season for both teams
