Last month or so, the Steubenville Board of Education hired religious behavior modification specialists from Smithfield to give seminars to the Roll Red Roll students. There was never supposed to be "bad behavior" from Steubenville
High School Juveniles after that. Time to get your money back? Maybe the seminar was just a
"stab in the dark" after-all. A way for the money grabbers and double dippers to throw away money to others in their network of mutual admiration fanatics.

What position does he play? He's probably a good kid from one of Stubenvilles fine families. He didn't know stabbing someone would lead to murder charges.Let's check with Jane about getting reduced charges, maybe aggravated menacing, or better yet, self defense.

Well, in that case, Reno will probably make him run a few laps with his gear on as punishment. Then it's off to the showers! And on to the next school-staff-hosted binge-drinking party.

That'll teach him.

If we keep losing all of our "playas", it'll be tough to go 14 and 0. Does Newell have any good players they can send us? Go
Team! Roll Red, Roll!

Does the Steubenville School District have an booze budget?

Yes, but it is a highly regarded taxpayer paid super fund. In order to tap into it, you need to be on the team, school board, booster, coach, let, etc.

There's no point in entertaining the majority of the ignorant posters on here. This incident was a tragedy for both boys involved as well as their families. The murder of this young man had nothing to do with Big Red football or Steubenville City Schools so for anyone to make it about that is just asinine. My heartfelt sympathies go out to both families affected by this tragedy and I can only hope their families never come across the snide comments made by these people.
