This stinks. Students whose parents move to another district must wear the red shirt and give up a year of eligibility. This happened to a Santa Cruz High soccer player who father was transferred here by his southern california employers.

NO such rules apply to private schools who recruit free agents just like the New York YANKEES. They have no residency requirements either as the Montana's live on their winery in Sonoma county; while Junior plays for a private school in Concord (aka Contra Costa county). Fools believe that PALMA High's entire football team resides in the immediate Salinas area! Hey, the coaches are Sasnta Cruz refugees from our defunct Holy Cross and Marello Prep high schools from the 60s and 70s.

The same rules should apply to everybody if they wanna play in the same leagues. Why does our CORRUPT legislature and Department of Education allpow this kind of dishonrest crap???

I know 'nobody ever said life was fair" but it's really not.
