I can't say I feel sorry for the losers. I want to hear how good they are one more time.

My son is a senior, but I am upset that we would facemask late in a game. No sportsmanship.

Why would a person feel sorry for them? They played and lost a football game. They had a very good season and lost to a team that will probably win the state championship. Why the bitterness towards them? I have no affiliation with the school but am proud that a local team had a season as good as they did. Just as I was proud of North Greene's girls when they played for the state championship in basketball or the south Greene girls when they did the same in volleyball. Just as I would be if any local team had a great season. It's immature bullshit like this that needs to stop.

Very well said. I've seen on Facebook, parents of county players celebrate the fact that GHS lost. You don't have to look far to see where kids learn their values & sportsmanship. Support your county schools. My son, who doesn't play football by choice, has played some kind of ball with kids from all over the city & county since he was 5 years old! These boys are one day going to be working together at the same companies, etc & stupid crap like not rallying behind one another will be a grudge that's carried for awhile.

I do agree with the comment about Ron Metcalfe. He has been a snooby better-than in that pressbox for several years. Sad that his voice may be all some know about Greeneville High.

I knew our boys were beat when they stomped the falcon at mid-field before the game.

GHS stepped down so that they could beat the piss out of county schools with their recruited talent. It's the "rich getting richer" attitudes and the " need for greed" parents of GHS students whom have created this poor showmanship their children show. It's a damn shame but it is the way of this world it seems. I do not revel in the fact that they were beat last night. I feel worse because these children are being brought up to believe that stomping on the little man and money can get you anywhere are the key factors in life. Money and bullying do not equal success! The Lord Jesus Christ is the only way to success!

Someday you and the rest will accept the fact that Greeneville is playing in the classification that they are supposed to be in. They have no say in what conference they are in. I'm sure they would rather be in the conference with elizabethton and Sullivan south so the could get a little more competition during the regular season. Unfortunately they are not. The county schools are competitive and beat Greeneville in almost every other sport but football. Yet nobody seems to notice this. It is only about football. I believe if you check the rosters of county schools in all sports but football you will see kids that have moved or live with a relative to compete for that school.

Im so glad they didnt get on a Greene Coach Bus, considering they left from and returned to GHS in Young Transport buses out of Asheville. What bus line did the county teams take to their playoff games ? Oh - thats right - they didnt make it that far !!!

I completely agree! The snobby holier than thou attitudes from the parents trickles down to the players. It came back to bite them last night. I hope the trip back from Knoxville on their Greene Coach buses was a long one.
Im sure the trip back on the YOUNG TRANSPORT BUSES was a long one. The Greene Devils got what they deserved last night. They got to play in the 3rd round of the playoffs - something they earned thru hard work and dedication - something that the county teams just dream about. As far as the attitudes, that comes from winning. There are kids on that team that are from money families - just like on ALL teams. But there are also kids on that team that wear hand-me-down cleats and have to bum rides just to get home from practice. The meals they get on Fridays before the games are the best food they get all week. Football is the only place they feel equal with the other kids. They feel accepted. Neither chose the situation their lives have put them in. Think before you speak - or type. Jealousy is such an ugly trait !!

You, Rufus, need to learn to comprehend what you read before you reply. You make no sense. I will not converse with you.

The Devils had a good season! The football players can't help that the conference they are in is the same our county schools are in. Maybe the county schools should try to step down a level instead of complaining all the time. Those boys work their asses off all summer and fall just to get to play a team like Fulton, I'm sure they don't enjoy all season of no competition. I for one are very proud of them! They as a team showed great sportsmanship(unlike west greene did). Good luck next year Devils and great job Seniors, job well done!

Good sportsmanship like damaging the locker room at West Greene after the game this year?

What's this I keep hearing about GHS damaging WGHS locker rooms? If there was vandalism, why were charges not brought?

don't think that is true but I do know the WGcoach made his team leave the field without shaking GHS hands, that's poor sportsmanship. GHS played JV the 2nd half of game to be fair

It's not like any of the county teams were conference champions on a regular basis before Greeneville had to drop down. Who'd y'all whine about then?

Guys, a very good team. But if you have access to the pre-game show, watch the faces of the coaches from Greenville. They were smiling and having fun with the situation at mid-field. Who were the chhildren there. For those who don't like to fan cheering from the stands, hope your school has a golf team that meet your standards, we love our Falcons as we do fori any team we play. Please understand we enjoy playing the GAME and the love the kids that do thier best for the east Knox area. See ya'll next year.
