Justice for team sports

How is it that Jim Justice can use basketball players from africa and other states in direct violation of secondary schools athletic rules? How is it that student athletes that live in greenbrier county cannot participate in extracurricular activities because african kids and kids from tennesee, roanoke virginia, and most recently east beckley can play on the team as transplanted students. Isnt this what we call recruiting. How is it that a lawyer's kid from beckley plays for greenbrier east while living in beckley?

I watched the greenbrier east game at the armory. East has not won in that building since 1985. They just won with a 7 foot african. The last time I checked there are no 7 foot africans in greenbrier county that speak french. The african is rumored to be tied to the back porch of a trailer and let loose for basketball practices. Where did jim justice find this kid and how much is he paying to recruit kids like this. Rondell watson is from east beckley and has played for three separate counties. Raleigh , fayette and now greenbrier. This is a travesty and takes the fair chances for other students to play away. A challenge of all of the wins is forthcoming and a lawsuit for denying equal opportunities to greenbrier county students will be heard by the courts.

Jim justice may be cheating the system. This is a shallow win and a low point for greenbrier county. WHen you cheer for african kids while your kids pay admission price to get into the game instead of being on the team that is as low as it gets.

It's called Jim Justice has money and has said that he will keep anything the SSAC does tied up in court. Not sure about the African kid, but Rondale played at Oak Hill last year after OH and Mount Hope combined. From what I'm told Justice made him an offer "they couldn't refuse".

Yeah but good ol jimmy needed power on for the golfers! Come on now, you have to give up your power so he could fuel his need for the golf world. He'll do anything actually I think he would sell out his own family to win a sports game.
YAY!

'Justice for team sports'.....way to be over the top racist. I'm sure your family must be proud! Obi is 6'9" and to be honest isnt that great a basketball player, he is just learning..Justice could have recruited better players than Obi. Obi was adopted by a Greenbrier County family to have a better life.'

The other boys...umm..yeah, recruited.

There is no local flavor on East's team. Heck, Jim Justice isnt even from greenbrier county. He is from raleigh county. he attended woodrow wilson and was mad when he could not get the girls basketball team from dave barksdale and kevin white. he sabotaged whites reputation to get the job because he wanted to get both teams just like he is doing at East. Barksdale had to personally request ron kidd get the job because of the antics with justice and others.

Heck, Bimbo coles knows more about basketball than justice could ever dream about and even he cant get a coaching job at East. Now that is racist.

For you to defend Jim Justice and say I am racist and then say that he did recruit some of the players shows how ignorant people from white sulphur springs and greenbrier county are. People like you would rather have transplanted kids represent your community than your own kids. How ignorant and sick is that. The East fans cheering for that team cheered for kids from africa, roanoke, east beckley, beckley (lawyers kid) and a coach from beckley. People will not and do not respect people who cheat and go around the rules. Jim Justice is the lance armstrong of basketball. He has to cheat to win. He cheats when he does not pay his bills. He cheats when he buses people into the casino. He cheats when he fires shoe shiners and valets at the greenbrier because they are about to retire with a pension. Nobody respects that. He is dirty like the coal mines he owns.

Where are all of the girls that won the state championship from last year? They went back to their respective homes in other states. Heck, Chante Macdowell is from East Beckley too. LOLOLO. Pitiful. Nobody respects any of that and laugh at them for falling for such a travesty.

If east could beat beckley with just their kids like when they had bimbo and sidney coles then all respect is due. But until then, Greenbrier East is sacrificing their own childrens scholastic opportunities to allow a man to vicariously live out his pipe dream of being a great coach when he is not.

I'm sure jim justice wouldn't offer parents of the transferred students, money, gifts or employment at the greenbrier. No way, justice is such an honest man and basketball guru. He doesn't have to do this to win. Yeah right!

You people suck! Where was all these comments last year, oh I forgot the flying buzzards won. First of all to talk about the 7 footer that shows how much class you have, he came here adopted to better himself and be part of the American dream.
you want to talk about recruiting, lets look at the past 25 years of Beckley, lets not even go there. I am a GEHS 85 graduate and Barksdale was a great at getting recruits thats why he went to the college, Bob sure as hell didnt need him for anything else.

Look first time in how many years, get over it. The young men on the court for both teams played well and it was better than any state game in years.

I recall the 1985 football game played at the old field when we (EAST) won 8-7 and the then great up the middle Criddle was subjuct to the same b/s-----Grow up Beckley

If all you flying eagles fan knew so much about Jim Justice then you would know why these young men trareferred to east. Obi was adopted, he was adopted by a family in greenbrier county. He chose to take them up on the offer, don't try and bash the kid. Bryce and rondale chose to ttransfer to east for a quality education and to get a better chance of going to the collegiate level. Derek, Evan, Owen, denate have all played ball together since elementary school. They play well! Funny how you dont remember Beckley recruiting.. All in all, ive said it once and ill say it again, you're nothing but a bunch of sore losers! Let me ask you all something, what happened to taron? Why'd he go from a AAA high school, to a AA high school? Something sounds a little phisy to me? What does the pga tournament have to do with basketball? All in all like coach kidd said, he knew it wasn't going to be easy, and it obviously wasn't. No reason to be mad, focus on your next game. This one is in the books, we will see you sectional time:! It will be another hard fought good game!

And Mr "justice for team sports" if you really knew so much about greenbrier east basketball you would know that if they had a lot of kids try out for basketball at east, there would be a freshman team to go along with jv and varsity just like in years past!
