Gloria Moore: Bulldogs a bad image

To the editor:

The Bulldogs are in the doghouse.

My children and I went to the homecoming parade this year. My children were so excited to go.

As the varsity Bulldogs football team came close to us, my son, age 2, yelled, "Go Bulldogs!" One of the players on the float decided to be ignorant, and instead of throwing candy to my child, he threw a Trojan condom to my son, who picked it up thinking it was candy.

It's pretty bad when a team member shows his team spirit by throwing condoms instead of candy. This has given the whole team a bad image. He should be ashamed of himself and say "sorry."

And a sincere apology it is, but the paper failed to put it on the front page so you have to go to the opinion page to read it. Finally a young man, although it was a stupid mistake, is man enough to admit it and formally apologize. Thank you Braeden

Right on. I didn't see that either. We learn more from mistakes than our successes. I hope this kind of settles it for him and the school.

I think it's great that he apologized. It was a poor decision on his part but he is trying to make it right by admitting his mistake. Too bad more kids at the high school don't have the same attitudes. I can't believe how some kids acted at the HOmecoming parade and at the game - cussing at the kids on floats in the parade and making out at the game in plain sight of everyone. It was disgusting and I won't be taking my young kids to the football games anymore. Where are these kids' parents?

Ok, I gotta say that took Braeden alot of courage to apologize. This is patrick's daughter Harley and Braeden is a friend to me, I dont know him all that well but I know he is a good guy. Ya know that is what homecoming is like. Some teenagers just dont care, but I am a 13 year old girl and I go to homecoming every year and it is the funniest thing ever. All though poeple are up there kissing, makingout and cussing, it doesn't mean the parents are horrible, yeah it does refleact bad on the parents but some parents dont know what their kids are doing up there. I make sure Im on my best behavior up there because alot of people know me and would look at me wrong because they know my dad. You have to just ignore the fact that those teenagers are just imature and stupid to do that in front of children, I would know because i have 3 younger siblings.
