Citizens of Steubenville, show the world you care by boycotting all big red football games until Saccoccia is gone. Show us that you WILL stand up for what's right and your town is only as corrupt as YOU allow it to be. I also implore other schools to not even take the field with them next season, even if it means you have to forfeit the games. And if you still plan to support big red football as long as the current coaches are there, I ask you to do one thing, look at the woman closest to you and explain to them that you think high school football is more important than them

That's like asking a crooked preacher to give up his phony facade of religion.

Not gonna happen.

That's why the entire town should be ridiculed and mocked indefinitely.

I think this town seriously believes Man O' War is God and the creator of the universe,et al. Even though the rest of the world knows it's just a mascot.

If I was one of the innocent football players on the team I would seek to transfer before next season starts. Even if I had to sue to do so. Because you KNOW colleges know are gonna be very leary about recruiting kids from that team now.

Can't they remove the Steubenville team from whatever athletic conference they are in? I'm pretty sure the other schools don't want to 'play' their type of game anyway. Steubes has people playing on their team who do not even live in the city. That should be grounds alone from removing them.(and they suck)

Football is a dumb zero-sum game.
For the same money they could buy 50 airplanes, get all the HS kids pilots licenses, and go sky diving during recess.

THAT build character.

Playing brain damaging games with guys; showering with guys in open bays; using toilets with no doors, and getting drunk with the assistant coach does NOT.

Any school that is scheduled to play the big red rape crew should forfeit the game. If only to point out the fact that there are a lot more things in the world more important than some stupid high school football game. I personally would not want a bus load of kids with their low standards and morals anywhere near my child or child's school. I am tired of hearing about the poor boys lives being ruined. And I am quite curious as to how many of the 16 kids that refused to make statements are on the team. They should not be allowed to play in any games until all people involved are brought to justice. That poor girl has to live with this the rest of her life.

The program should be shut down permanently and the money used for USEFUL purposes like academics! Silly boring kids games have nothing to do with education!

The cover-up was perpetrated by people in the high school administration, local government, and law enforcement. The kids who were home and in bed and not out raping people shouldn't have to suffer. Anyone who was involved in this should be prosecuted and removed from the team. Including the head coach and assistants.

I have read most everything having to do with this disgraceful/crime. The comments from the cities drunk mayor,and the perky ''facts'' site that the city has put up, to the schools admin and teacher comments. NONE of these people get it. The cover up continues.
