What the hell is the Register Herald doing trying to glorify Jim Justice as some kind of great coach? If he was winning all of these games with Greenbrier County kids then that would be one thing but he has openly recruited for years and the SSAC doesn't have the stones to stop this. Ask any coach in this region and it is obvious that his coaching abilities are average at best-no doubt he is a hell of a recruiter.
He preaches about teaching kids about life but what he teaches them that it is ok to break the rules to reach your goal. Anyone wonder why he is playing a bunch of Va. teams this year-no WV teams will play Greenbrier East and very few coaches have any respect for the program or him. His so called state championship will forever be tainted and scorned by those who really know basketball and do try to teach their players the right way to live their lives.
He says he is for the kids-his kids and the hell with your kids. What a frigging joke and shame on the local hometown paper for perpetuating this fraud.

This paper did the same thing when it came to MSU. This paper seems to be biased to those with a little money and power. Investigative reporting is non existent with the register rag. Charleston Gazette does a better job. It is a shame you gotta go outside the local paper to read some decent news coverage.

The adoption of Obie had nothing to do with basketball. If you saw him play his first year on the team you would know that he had probably never played the game before. Therefore his (Obie) being on the team had nothing with winning games. By the way, why does coach Ron Kidd refuse to comment to reporters after games. He could at least give the players credit for playing hard, wonder what they think of their coach not giving them props for working hard for him. He may be the reason the fans don't come out to support anymore, that's why I stay home.

Generally I speaking I have found stories about
MSU, Jim Justice, Mayor Pugh, City police, sheriffs dept and the like less biased in the gazette. That is all. Sorry I'm not one of those that has saved everything - I can't post a link or go on a twenty minute tangent. Just stating my opinion.

It really seems like all you Woodrow people do is obsess over Jim Justice. He made 500 million dollars in the past year, I don't think he cares what you all think. LOL. So do yourselves a favor Woodrow people and get a job and get your asses off welfare!

If he wouldve paid everyone he owes around Raleigh county he wouldn't have made 500 million. That's why half of Raleigh county don't like him. And that's a fact Jack!!!
