What ever happened to all the Bellport Bragger??? remember this post from 2007:

You cannot compare Bellport And sayville, Bellport is a much better team, and yes Gowins will start over John Deluca anyday, Delucas playing D3 football, Most of the kids on bellport are all going 1aa or 2. Bellports just a better team, much better than sayville will ever be

What happened to the big rivalry???? Now all I hear is talk about the teams and players of the past!!! Could this past dominant program be washed up ???

Look at the scores from the past 2 years>>>> Sayville vs pop warner bellport

the only thing bellport has over Sayville is more players who know and understand the lyrics to JZ's raps.

Westhampton. How good were the crowds back in the 60's and 70's when you had games that included:
Riverhead, Greenport, Southampton, Westhampton, East Hampton and even Port Jefferson?
I remember there being huge crowds for games out there.
I know that Hampton Bays did not become a high school until the mid-70's and Shoreham, Miller Place, and Rocky Point did not exist either. In fact, only Miller Place and Hampton Bays had football in the 70's and much of the 80's. Mt Sinai came into being even later.
all the football in the 60's and 70's drew big crowds not the same today but suffolk supports much more than nassau for sure

thats because going to a game is crap shoot meaning there is a 40% chance you will get shot.that tends to keep crowds down.

Wonder how many posters on this forum remember the Thanksgiving Turkey Bowl (Patchogue HS vs Port Jefferson HS) 6,000 plus every year during the '60's. Patchogue HS was at Saxton MS at that time when they had lights and seating for 5,000 before they dismantled the seats and the lights.

Why does long island put almost zero emphasis on HS sports? Most other states have sports that actually draw some attendance.

Downstate New York is centered on professional sports. There is no real interest in college or High School sports on Long Island or NYC. With the exception of St. John's basketball team in the 80s there is no real interest in non-professional sports.
When I go watch a High School sport, I'm often asked if my son or daughter is playing. When I tell them that I'm just here to watch a game, they can't believe that I would be interested in watching a game without my own children in it.

not really they are worried that you might be stalking their kids.it happens to me all the time-why can't we just watch games and not be watched ourselves.hint walk around like you are gay then they will love you.

In Pennsylvania and New Jersey, the crowds in football and basketball are not what they once were. I guess there are just more choices for people today other than going to the local high school game.

Thanksgiving games were once a big draw but both Pa and NJ are trying to get rid of all of them.

West Islip plays solid high school football. I do not remember them every playing on Thanksgiving. I used to go to the following Turkey Day games on Long Island. Port Jefferson/Patchogue, EI/CI and Smithtown/Hauppauge.

If there was an 8 game schedule for WI, regardless of school size, who would you think would be on that schedule to draw the biggest crowds? Would it look like this?

- East Islip
- Bay Shore
- North Babylon
-Who would the other 5 games be on the schedule?

Basically Neighboring Districts
East Islip
Bay Shore
North Babylon
West Babylon

Further away but still good match-ups
Riverhead
Newfield
Smithtown E and W

You hear about huge crowds for Jersey, Pennsylvania, Ohio and then the big boys, Florida, Texas, Cali

Just wish it was different. Maybe because we dont have those "big time" ESPN 150 players anywhere on the island.

Would be nice having crowds like Bergen v St Anthony, at a couple fields every week!!!!!

In a typical year, Sayville, Babylon, West Bab, Bellport, Floyd. WI still seems to get good crowds for football - remember, in other areas they are much more spread out and playing on Friday nights. Nothing like a night game to bring people out...not easy giving up a Saturday afternoon with all the activities people have to get their kids to (along with mowing the lawn!). LI moving out of an internal schedule would bring it a long way very quickly.
