A very arrogant statement writen by a battle fan, I would not expect anything less. Your character and sportsmanship is showing. What a shame to bad mouth high school kids. Shame on you but then again I would not expect anything else coming from a battle fan.

Agreed.. VHS has always had a better team. They have always beat Battle until last season. Now you guys are crying and trash talking. Grow up and take your lumps.

You don't have a clue what you are talking about. Nobody is trashing battle. One of your ignorant fans came on this VA High Football page and ran their mouth because woo hoo. Battle finally one. You need to grow up. I have not heard one VHS fan cry or trash battle, it is the other way around and I have friends at both schools and even battle folks talk about their own people, what a pity.

My GOD will you people quit ranting on which school is better. Let's face it, bearcats have beat battle the past some odd years but honestly are you that mad that you have to say battle parents are judgemental? Didn't hear us yelling trash talk across the field like we heard from vhs fans? Face it, VHS got their A.s.s.e.s kicked this year. Who went to the playoffs for the 1st time in a Hell of a long time and beat VHS AGAIN? Battle. That is All.

I attend VHS. Two wins from John Battle and their shit doesn't stink. Yeah you've had two good seasons but it's once in a blue moon. The fact that you trash talk to Bearcats after beating them twice is sad considering I don't know how many Bearcats, despite the rivalry and getting beat the week prior, came out to support the Trojans while they were in the playoffs, also sitting on the John Battle side wearing their green and yellow. Before you trash talk some more gain some sportsmanship and class before trashing the Bearcats.

Not to mention Virginia High took their beatings but when Battle would lose to Virginia High they would cry and make up some excuse as to why they lost. The bickering of the student sections wasn't just one sided and I'm sure when playing a rival school when you were in high school you were all playing paddy-cake and being best friends? I doubt it. Battle fans are overly cocky for their record and the Cats are clearly the better team.

If you call that getting their a**es kicked, you do need help. They did beat VHS but seriously, VHS gave them a run for their money, like someone else said earlier, VHS STOMPED Battle for years and they won by a few points this year!!! I think "wow" said it best, read their comments. Battle has a bunch of whiney parents. I seen more sportsmanship and character out of VHS than Battle will ever have. What was VHS yelling across the field? I was there and I never heard anything of sorts.

Geez looks like VHS is wanting to stay in the past. Wake up! The "former bearcat" may of went to VHS, but always said he felt a connection to Battle. And to the person saying VHS ain't had stability, come on! Have you even been alive the past few years? Have you not seen Battle's coaching staff? Wake up guys. Battle is here to stay.

Love how everyone is saying that Battle just beat VHS this past year... actually, they beat VHS three times in the past TWO years! That shows how much of "football fans" you guys are. I'm pretty sure after Battle has won, VHS players/fans/parents have went and no doubt cried and made excuses on how Battle won. Not to mention the way the student section from VHS dressed the first time Battle won...2 years ago. Also, screaming at the players when they were hurt, screaming at the fans, etc. shows the sportsmanship and class VHS has. I'm just saying... But anyways, good luck to both teams this upcoming season! Hopefully they will BOTH do good again this year. See you on the Battle field.(:

I don't really get Battle and their fans (parents). They proclaim to live by setting a Christian example with their Bible verse which is great but from what I have heard some of those kids have kids. I heard. One of their main players had a baby by age 15. What kind of Christian example is that. Some, not all of their parents are very crude and mean. Bunch of hypocrites they are.

In reply to hypocrites, yes he has a baby, he had him at 17.. not 15. Also, I would like to point out that just because you have a child at a young age does NOT in anyway mean that you can't be a Christian or set a Christian/Bible example. The last thing I'd like to say is that not once has anyone in this forum or anyone I know that is a Battle fan/parent talked or said a thing about the VHS personal life or children.. Shouldn't point fingers when others aren't clean..

Geez..now the Bible is involved. I think this thread is played out. I live in Wash Co. but used to live "1 MILE" away in Bristol. I've never noticed a difference in personality or religion. It's all the same community. I would pull for any of our local teams who were able to make it to state(including VHS, THS, JSB, East or Abingdon). Bottom line is VHS beat Battle for many years. JSB recovered from a poor program and went deep into the state championship. I love s cross town rivalry. But calling school kids "druggies" and "@$$holes" is pathetic. Finally, to Hypocrites... The player you mentioned did have a child when he was too young but he also married the girl and chose not to have an abortion. And you imply that he is a poor Christian example. tisk.. tisk..tisk...

I do not think anyone from either school (and unfortunately it is mostly parents) should say anything about High School children. Grow up.

Okay for one, there are PLENTY of kids at VHS that have kids. That's not just Battle, it's every school these days. Two, to judge someone because they had a kid sooner than you isn't showing how "good" of a Christian you are. That's highly hypocritical, don't you think? Also, VHS fans talk just as much trash. I mean they've thrown Trojan condoms at us, yelled for their players to break our players legs, and they come dressed like rednecks every year which is ridiculous because there are MAYBE ten people that dress like that. Not to mention there are a lot of people who dress like that at VHS.

We whined and made up excuses every time we for beat? uhm, no. We took it like it was nothing because we were so used to it. Who makes excuses now? VHS. the first time we beat them it was the refs, second time refs, and the third time they relized were just good. That was the play off game... They cried on the bus ride home. So if Battle is whiners, what does that make them? Our student body has shown just how classy we really are. We didnt yell "break his legs" and we didnt dress to make fun of VHS. We came out to every game and supported the best football team Battle has ever had. We also came out to do it for P and we did all of that with classy.was the refs
