Misleading title; league with a weight limit, not unusual.

Seriously, at some point it becomes a safety issue.

There are other kids, according to the article, who are above the 135 lbs. weight limit who play.

Simple fix; just play for the school team instead of in this Pee Wee league.

The league made their rule. The rule should be respected. If the kid is serious about playing football, he should suck it up and play for the 7th grade team. Unfortunately, giving the league a hard time appears to be his mom's preference. He'll learn more playing for the 7th grade team too.

Why should the rule be respected by him if it isn't by other teams?

I agree, nww.

It's not like the kid doesn't have an option. Play for your school. I didn't think pee wee football went past sixth grade. At his size, he will get experience very fast.
