Coach Tom Davis was fired last week after one of his runners whipped off his shirt on a 75 degree day during practice.

The coach was let go immediately and in front of the team and escorted off school property.

The boys had been warned by the coach not to take their shirts off after some of the girls on the team had complained that it made them "uncomfortable" that some of the boys ran with no shirt on. He had even warned the team that their would be consequences if they did remove their shirt.

The team had been doing quite well under Mr. Davis tutelage earning a spot in nationals for one of their relay teams, with their outdoor team starting out 5-0.

The superintendent defended the firing by saying it was not the result of a single incident.

Fair or Foul?

    I think the "girls" who were offended by them cooling themselves need to buy a new vibrator to "cool down" their own frustrations.
    Obviously the whole school celibacy ring isn't working

    So the next time a student at this school does not do as told, should the teacher/coach be responsible for their actions? Homework not turned in, teacher fired. Student not to class on time, teacher fired. That seems to be the mentality.

    I wonder what they do at wrestling meets that females are involved in. When we weighed in, it was usually in underwear. If you were close, you lost the underwear to see if you could make weight without them. We never had any females in wrestling while I was in school...but they're popping up in a few places around the country.

    I read a bunch of articles on the Web. about this, so to get some idea of what is going on.
    It never said anything about the girls complaining. All I found was some people or neighbors complained. I read some idiot hothead named Fogel seems to be the real problem! Fogel, I read in one article was once suspended for striking a student.
    Fogel, confronted the student, quite hotly and Davis got in between them protecting and defending the student. Fogel didn't like that and fired Davis. Fogel is Westwood High athletic director and needs a golf cart to get around, sounds like a real looser to me.

    But the young man who peeled off his shirt AFTER being told not to should be disqualified from any future track events and lose ALL of his wins.

    Put the blame on the kid it belongs on, not the coach who did a good job and had done all he could to keep them all covered.

    Stupid rule..I'll say this, I don't know all of the FACTS..but with the line, "coach not to take their shirts off after some of the girls on the team had complained that it made them "uncomfortable" that some of the boys ran with no shirt on"..I will surmise that the girls were either:why do they get to take their shirts off when it's hot, no way is that fair..MOM",

    or if they felt uncomfortable, why did they feel uncomfortable, were they saying they were PREOCCUPIED with the boys and couldn't handles the six pack, without going into a cardiac arhythm..
    hey in defense of men, is it the WOMEN that say men are VISUAL, not women, they are emotional and nurturing and men are physical and visual, when it comes LUST, then stop wearing MINI SHIRTS, and TANK TOP without bras....because men are visual..or are WOMEN ALSO and MEN CAN BE NURTURING ALSO..I THINK SO..

    a LIE FOR DECADES< JUST REVEALED>>>BY A FIRING..

    hunh , amazing what happens when the lies put down thier front , the TRUTH IS RIGHT THERE...

    (in this case sounds like a DOUBLE STANDARD all the way AROUND)

    Yeah lets get our students over-heated and die from heat stroke..and then that question would be in replacement of this one, "Do you think in light of heat stroke death, the school said so not take your shirt of of over he...
