Last time I remember at Dandridge it was the Newport folks who wanted to fight and agrue every single call and the game was really over in the first half when we were up 19-6, talk about bad sportsmanship. In the game we played vs Sevierville it was two blown calls that put Sevierville in scoring range both times! Its obvious by someone saying suck one that Newport knows whats gonna happen on Sat! Dont matter if we played on the moon! Broncos gonna win and Newport is gonna whine!
Surely you would agree both Dandridge and Newport were out of line with their remarks and actions during that last game. The last call was right, but most didn't understand the call back until it was explained. Sevierville Bears are an awesome team and I think they will win the super bowl. The majority of Newport and Dandridge fans are fine. You will see a few on both sides that will show their [email protected]#. There's a few at every game. No matter who wins be supportive of both teams. Those kids are 8,9, and 10 year olds.

Oh, please! Tell it to Oprah! We were a #4 ranked team that beat a #1 ranked team. Explain in detail how we cheated? Take the loss and move on. These are little boys trying to play ball. People like you take the love of the game away from these little boys. Let them play and live their lives. Don't live yours through theirs. GO GP! Clear eyes, full hearts, can't lose. LOVE the GAME.

Yeah I do agree with that for both sides. I was talking about the calls with us and seiverville. that last kickoff play was confusing and I understand football what I thought was messed up was Newport went after the smallest guy on Dandridge's second defense to score their second td on that long pass and then kicked right at him on the next kickoff. Dandridge has gotten better and is riding two shutouts in a row! What im wondering is what trick did Newport pull off to beat Straw Plains?

Luck had nothing to do with it. Talent and love of the game did it. Our boys playing their hearts out and just wanting to play won the game. It's sad that our little boys had to hear adults cussing and being poor sports throughout the game. We soldiered on and won. Clear eyes, full hearts, can't lose.

Have you ever noticed how the losing teams always say the other team cheated or the referees cheated?

I think it is kind of silly for a little kids football team to have 8 coaches and then those coaches kids play both sides of the ball. Then if you go to the head of the organization they act like their is no favortism going on in anyway and that you are crazy and you are black balled if you open your mouth about it.Im all for my child to be part of the team but when he is a better player at a certain important position and then he sits behind a kid who is smaller,younger and dont have the same ability that is a joke, not to mention the kids father was a coach in previous years and works on and uses influence to make sure his kid plays and the coach goes along with it? What a joke especially after the season began with a speech about how the best players will play, I didnt hear the part about the best players will play after their children and their buddies children!
Same here! I from White Pine and we see that kind of thing year after year. We like to call it "The Good-0-boys Club". If your not one of the coaches kids, or their buddies kids, your not on the Starting line up. 90% of the time the coaches kids will play both sides of the line, 3/4 of the game.....all the game if it's a close one. All the while 10 other kids sit the bench most of the game, given very little of a chance to play, if any. That's not healthy for children at this age. And I will say this, The better player does not always get to play and the only ones that wont admit it is the ones whose kids are on the field each & every play.

After watching the supers game today vs newport the only thing that can be said was that the last Newport td should have been brought back! The Defensive End for the broncos #21 owned Newport and was in their backfield all game. The Td they ran on his side he was held so hard that his jersey's seems were tore by the end of the game! No call?! After all the calls made against both sides the whole game and that happend right in front of an official a game changing td?! The holding call should have been called!! The year is over for us and next week Sevierville will hand it to you all as well!

So why didnt Newport lose gracefully at Dandridge this year? That was just a few weeks ago! I remember hearing alot of grumbling and trash talking coming out of Newport's stand and then as three guys one named David Cox? or Fox and two of his buddies were leaving came over and told the whole coaching staff and three of us parents that none of us had any class and were all losers! then the police had to be brought in and who started it? Newport did cause they lost three games and coudnt handle it. Well get ready to lose next Saturday cause it will happen. The refs threw flags that didnt need to be thrown and then didnt throw them when they did need to be thrown! That was the biggest run Dandridge gave up all year! Its sad way to win on a obvious missed call, Ive seen the video that whole side was held. Ive been at the bronco field all year and at everygame and never saw a bronco parent or coach act out to anyone. I have saw people from other towns act out especially at our field.. mmmhm Talbot,Newport...Enjoy this week you all did win but it will be the last one..

who said anyone cheated? no one cheated but the refs just missed a hold that resulted in a td run that changed the game. My point was the fact that in the first half there was almost a flag on every play. Then no calls really in the entire second half! C'mon!
ohplease

#101 Nov 6, 2011
who cares it is just little league. yes we want them to win but EVERY TEAM can not win every single game! My sons team only won like maybe 3 games all year but the boys played with more heart and class than the adults talking on this page. It is you adults that are teaching your children to have bad sportsmanship!!!!!!!!!!

To all those going to the Super Bowl, I wish you best of luck. Dandridge had a chance to put all 3 divisions into the Super Bowl. How many other programs can say that? None. Dandridge had a great year and the PeeWees have a chance to do the unthinkable. Beat 2 undefeated teams back to back to bring it home. I say best of luck against the Titans. Best of luck to you. And to all you complainers on here--shut it up already. What is arguing over a kids game going to accomplish? Dandridge lost to Newport when the game should have been over when the score was 12-6 in favor of Dandridge. Can't blame this one on the refs--Broncos shouldn't have gotten that personal foul taking them out of the game. Newport kid that killed our QB at beginning of game should have been ejected though. Coaches for Roosters called that one and was dirty. So I am torn on who to pull for--I hate Sevier County but Newport is dirty. Double forfeit? GO BRONCOS beat those Titans. Go Jeff City Patriots beat those Pigeon Forge Tigers.
