No negativity here. Just wondering how restricting the number of non-league games teams can play is anything resembling "political?"

Shouldn't all our schools be on an equal basis related to the number of games played?

Why should the better-funded districts be able to play more games because they have the money, while the less-affluent schools play less games because of the considerable expense of traveling?

Seems like there's a considerable amount of money involved in bringing a team from southern Maine to Bangor for games, particularly if it would involve overnight stays.

spoken like a true snow flake....everything has to be equal....wah wah wah

wussification of America......if you go by that logic then ban AAU....only the rich kids can afford to play......Upper class communities don't win everything...take a look at Portland......russo does it with inner city kids who play on the playgrounds of the city...

life isnt about making everything even.....This MPA rule hurts the kids, the game, and it more importantly it hurts the reffan because he misses the X Mas tourney the way it was!!!

To reffan: I'm no snowflake, far from it. I hate participation trophies.

But, this is high school basketball. There are considerable expenses involved in playing so many "exhibition" games away from home.

Why should the affluent districts be able to play more games than less-affluent ones?

That's like saying educational opportunities shouldn't be equal throughout our state, based on money within the respective communities.

These high school teams compete against each other in league situations. Why should one team enter league play with an advantage because it could afford to play 15 "exhibition" games while another couldn't afford to play any?

We're not talking about AAU basketball. That's a different animal altogether.

You are reffan, follow him?

Yeah, follow reffan's low-IQ postings. You know, the ones that advocate only the rich have a chance to improve.

Here's a suggestion, reffan: Open up what must be your own sizable wallet and donate some money to less-affluent school districts so its players can have the same athletic opportunities as the better-off ones.

lol you must be a Bernie Sanders voter....redistribution of wealth...that is always the liberals answer...

if you go by your logic...then everything has to be equal....so....

why not have all teachers get paid the same? richer communities pay more so they get the best teachers....not fair.

All facilities should be the same.....Portland, sorry... no more Expo for you or Hadlock field for the baseball team. Not fair to the schools that play on a regular field and a small gym.

no more spring trips for baseball and softball teams....not fair to the poorer districts...

All coaches get paid the same....not fair that some towns pay their coaches more....

so the only thing we are going to make "fair" is how many games a high school team can play.....boy....that rule has really helped high school sports!

reffan low IQ???....socialism has failed everywhere it has been tried....take some time today and read some history.....

I am Professor Reffan.......follow me @highiqreffan

And if you, reffan, are a professor ... I'd hate to see what your "students" become!

Professor, indeed. Professor of stupidity, foolishness, idiocy, etc.
