I totally agree with this. The 1st thing I would do if I were running Elder is do whatever it takes to get The Elder forum off Yappi. No other school's forum comes close to the idiocy spewed ever day on there. Many people read it and it is a total embarrassment to the school. Over the top doesn't even begin t describe what I read on their forum.

Hopefully there are protests. Maybe a peace march from the firehouse on Glenway up to the EHS.

I asked my daughter if she’d seen my newspaper. She told me that newspapers are old school. She said that people use tablets nowadays and handed me her iPad. The fly didn’t stand a chance.

You didn't say they had to be good.

GCL cheering section antics have been going on for a long time. This was obviously crossing the line and frankly an embarrassment to the school and alumni. I'm sure the students will be dealt with. This in no way an excuse for the students but I'm really surprised someone from the school wasn't there putting a stop to it.

Repeated incidents in the area. Its no wonder when major corporations like Amazon look to expand, they take one quick look at the Cincinnati area and keep on searching....but that's another story.
Can't wait till Tournament time !

The answer to why this happens stares us in the face at the top of every Nightly News broadcast since last January.

People have become emboldened to turn the clock back 50 years and being racist has been cleverly disguised as #MAGA.

It's an incredibly sad state of affairs. Elder does so much good for so many people...yet, they can't get past this black-eye, no matter how hard they try.

The right thing would have been to forfeit the game and make a REAL statement to their students and the parents that THIS behavior is wholly unacceptable. The right thing would have been for the highest ranking school official at the game to get on the microphone and announce to the crowd that the game was forfeit because of the inexcusable and unacceptable behavior of the students. Sadly, the right thing wasn't done and hasn't been done in regards to this behavior in a very, very long time.

Well, they got the "W"...I guess that's all that matters.

The number of posters defending and/or downplaying this on the Elder forum is embarrassing. A lot of excuses and deflection. Quit bringing up other schools, quit spouting BS about political correctness, quit talking about how this is a rivalry and how it's always been. Own your sht. Hand out punishments that show this won't be tolerated any longer, fix the problem, and move on.

The videos clearly show it happened at different parts of the game including the first half when the score was 17-14. He is an elder student defending his racism.

Not necessarily in a GCL game.

As for the comments, I have to admit the GCL does need to get a grip on this stuff. I know a few years ago Moeller started putting a faculty member in the student section to stop this stupidity.(I'm not sure if they still do or not) It really does get out of hand and needs to be addressed.

I watch all types of games and not just the Wayne games. I saw both Moeller/LaSalle as well as Elder/St.Xavier. I posted what I saw and would of posted it on the original thread but it was closed as it was thought to be just a rumor. I had a link to the game so I posted it.

I do power ratings for SW district so all leagues within the district I worry about. Wayne is doing fine, thanks for asking.

Not sure why this question I posted on the Elder board was deleted....makes no sense.

But can you imagine being a current black or asian student at Elder? This has to be tough.

I find it curious why the Elder/St.Xavier game has now been taken off of Spectrum on demand.

That sounds good, but the reality is this is a GCL problem (i.e. not just Elder). Frankly, my experience/observation has been that the St. Xavier student body is far more insulting than any other school in the Cincinnati area.

Hand out punishments that show it won't be tolerated any longer? Way back in 2005, St. Xavier students repeatedly made gorilla gestures in the state championship game against the black Canton McKinley team. Guess what, they've done in several times since when playing predominantly black teams.

Apparently, the St. Xavier parents and administration are fine with their kids dishing it out, but can't handle it when it comes their way.

Wow. Really. You are so very far off base.
What happened at Elder was horribly wrong.
Iit seems it wasn’t properly responded to by the administration.
But really, your post strains the bounds of lunacy.
If you really believe your post then seek help.
Sincerely. I’m worried for you.
If you DON’T really think that, and are using this sad situation to make some craven political point, then that’s even sadder still.

You can choose to not believe me, but you can't confirm that it didn't happen any more than I can confirm it did.

There have been several threads over the years about GCL student body chants at games that went over the line. This isn't something new.

Hardly unique to the GCL unfortunately it happens everywhere, just becuase its GCL though they get a thread.
