So, it's too soon to discuss the matter until all the facts are presented? At what point are people to know that ALL the facts have been presented? Are we waiting for you to tell us? No one presumed the facts of the situation. Almost every post acknowledged that all the facts upon which the decision was based are not presented. But that does not and should not stop conjecture based exchange of ideas. That's how society progresses. It does not wait for "bad" things to happen before trying to foresee. In what enlightened society is polite debate and discussion discourged? Took this a bit personally didn't you?

Opportunity presented to discuss a topic, which has been broiling at more than just this school, related to more than just sports. Few are passing judgement on the coach but it is a public decision open to public opinion. It is topical. If some opinion goes against the coach's decision, so be it? Do you presume this coach so thick headed he doesn't considered others might be able to bring thoughts he hadn't considered? Is he so weak he cannot go on if some do not agree with his approch?

Go home if you don't want to sew. If you have some intelligence to contribute, pass the thimble.
It's just funny seeing all this sewing taking place when nobody is even sure what's being sewn.

Not really. I merely pointed out that religion has been brought into similar conversations in the recent past.

Years ago, Coach Tony Napolet required all players to shave their heads as a commitment to the team. (my brother in laws hair was straight until that fateful day! LOL) Didn't matter what race you were. If you wanted to play ball, you had to make that personal commitment to your team. If you wanted to be a pretty boy, join the drama club. If you want to play football, you shaved your head, at practice, like the rest of the TEAM. That's where this is all coming from. Commitment. Not racial. Not religious. TEAM. And as the old cliché goes, there is no "I" in team. Coach wants to win. He's not going to make a rule that limits his talent pool unless he sees a greater good.

The difference in the Coach Napolet team and the Coach Annarella team is the 1st example EVERYBODY has to do it. In the 2nd (presumably) only certain people are targeted.

IMO if it's about long hair- no problem.
If its about dreads-will be a problem, especially if some white kids have longer hair
