small school... NO talent... NO hopes of EVER bringing home a title, except maybe for cheerleading or (redneck) FFA stuff... and apparently NO class

let them have their fun at the expense of others.

besides, i'd rather them trot around in tarzan rags and monkey suits than to continue tracking horse shit everywhere with those nasty redneck boots they all wear.

You people really need help. Why is it that the race card has to be brought up in everything people do. Get over it. Im sure it had nothing to do with being black.But somebody has to start something every time.

I am not the FAN you are referring to BUT I will say that the Phoenix Suns have a gorilla as their mascot.. thats right.. that is what their mascot is.. that is totally different.. that is what they use every game.. not to offend anyone.. this situation is different.. it was done delibertly. I dont think its wise to call anyone out of their name or call them an animal and thats what GC did to Mayfield. Regardless what you meant it was not a very wise choice and if they really didn't mean it that way then an apologize should not be a big issue then.

YEAH YOU ARE RIGHT.. always somebody starting something.. and most of the time it involves GC because they dont know how to act. you all are the ones that started it.. Didn't see any of our fans do anything to disrespect you all. But thats not us.. WE HAVE CLASS unlike YOU! SO dont start throwing stones..

Hmmmm...no matter what it was blown way over what it should have been! Wonder if anything would have been said if MAYFIELD would have won!
The reult of the game doesn't matter. What matters is that the parents and administrators of Graves County students are teaching and supporting hate. I don't like to generalize, so I will say (or atleast I hope this is right) not every parent and employee of Graves County High School support this ignorance, but I have yet to hear of an adult representing that team or school say it was wrong. And that is was it scary...ignorance breeding ignorance. Those kids don't have a chance! Oh yea...I'm WHITE!

It was a theme!! Welcome to the Jungle not welcome home or anything racist. Kids were also painted like tigers and other animals. The suit was a distraction, apparently it worked.
not a fan of either

I think that the administration is the one to blame here, letting things like this happen. They are adults and they are smart enough to know when they think that something is going to offend someone. This is troublesome especially when it is a minister that is normally standing in front of the crowd during a game and he allows this to go on. Then he will get up in front of his congregation and preach on the things that we as Christians should not do. It saddens me to know that we have these kinds of role models for our kids to look up to.

You all are all racist talking! ERACISM!! Get it erase racism! Administrators not at fault. Kids are at fault for being taught hatefulness. Poor parenting skills.

Graves mascot is an Eagle stick with the mascot theme!!! Mayfield should follow the same rule Cardinal is the mascot stick with it..... No questions or comments needed that way!!!
When I first heard this I was disgusted by the thought of what the were trying to do? Didn't know or care who won it was the fact that it was allowed to happen in the manner it did.
I have been told that small children even questioned what it was all about that should not have happened.......

So now your saying Graves are Rednecks, racists and retarded. Wow... I'm sure your parenting skills are excellent! All kids can be mean, but what surprises me is that I think it bothers the parents more than the kids! My children are friends with alot of people, no matter the race or origin. Just because our children are not dating blacks, you think Graves is racist. I have plenty of black friends and they are human beings and I do see where it was taken out of context completely. I, myself as a Graves parent will absolutely apologize for how it may have come across. It's not going to change the bad blood between the two schools. My husband and I do not teach hatred to anyone and I'm appalled that you insinuate otherwise about all Graves parents. From myself, I truly am sorry for what was thought to be a demeaning racism act last night.I hope this shows their are good people at both schools no matter what color or race.

Hey Missing Link, please provide your contact information so that I can file a complaint against you for your application of the term REDNECK to Graves County people. All Graves County people are not rednecks. The definition of prejudice is found in its origin of the two words, pre and judge. As in pre judging an entire group by that acts of a few.
Pretty racist if you ask me.
did ur sister say no this morning
