To you guys that think a kid shouldn't get in trouble for drinking in the summer because the NDHSAA doesn't have any control then... how do you feel about Sammy Sosa, A-Rod and those guys using steroids? It wasn't illegal in Major League baseball but it was in the United States... Very comparable situation...
I think what is happening to A-Rod is exactly what should happen, nothing. A-Rod isn't getting suspended by MLB. Steroids weren't illegal by MLB when he was doing them just like drinking in the summer isn't illegal by the NDHSAA. You just proved my point. If an athlete gets caught DURING season with alcohol, I believe they should be suspened. If a picture of them in the summer surfaces during winter while in basketball season, I don't believe they should be.
Something I find funny... Michael Phelps. The guy has a picture of him takin while holding a "bong" to his mouth. He doesn't get changed. Why not? Because according to authorities, holding a bong to your mouth doesn't imply that you are smoking weed. But yet, a beer can in the backround implies that that person is drinking and should be suspended. I know I'm comparing a highly famous athlete to high school students, but I just thought it was a funny situation.
