Gripe or Complaint Box for May 9, 2011

Mid-Morning MadHouse 10am-12 Noon, Lunatics Lunch Hour from Noon till 2pm and the Afternoon DeFight from 2-6pm……

Got any new Gripes or Complaints?????

This is the box for Monday, May 9, 2011. We are taking those gripes and complaints and we have to remind you to keep it real on your subject matter.

We will be cleaning out the box at the end of each day and we may have to do some cleaning throughout the day if the material gets too thick.

Local gripes or complaints, National gripes or complaints. Is there anything that is rubbing you the wrong way? How about that coaching change or the kid that just left one high school/college and is transferring to another? What about the kid that got left off the All-Conference team or the All-State team?

Is there a school board member that really has you upset???

Let us know, and by the way, do you have anything new for us today??????


  1. WOW, Lacrosse gets more coverage than Track & Field!!!
    Good job to all of the teams and participants in the Regional Championships this past weekend. Good Luck at the State Championship.
    Did you guys even know that it was coming up?

  2. Just venting a little bit here……I don’t agree with the conference tournament having so much bearing on the state playoffs. A team who has played mediocre over the course of a long 24 game max regular season can now get hot or lucky over the course of 3 days (whichever way you wanna argue) and get the 2 seed from their league in the state playoffs. Not to mention if there were any other “upsets” in that leagues bracket. This can make their road a lot less difficult to win the tournament. For example, there is a league in NC that is extremely competitive and now we’re on the verge of having the 7th place team from that league win the tournament and get the 2nd seed. And a team that was better throughout the course of the same regular season and finished 5th will be left out because of it. AT LEAST WE WON’T GO TO THE FOOTBALL SYSTEM WHERE 95% OF THE TEAMS THAT HAVE A PULSE MAKE THE PLAYOFFS!!!!!!!

  3. On the track, it appears the interest in Track and Field has deteriorated much like the conditions of our local track facilities….

    How can you have an up an coming track team when you don’t have a track?

    Where would Grimsley and Dudley practice, on the old tracks? I guess so….At Grimsley the focus seems to have shifted toward lacrosse and at Dudley, their baseball team is still doing very well….

    There was a time when you couldn’t catch Dudley and Smith track, in both boys and girls….Northwest in boys seems to have shifted gears and lacrosse has taken over as the big spring sport at NWG…..

    I was interested in the results, especially with the Jones kid at Ragsdale in boys and in Brianna Warren at Western in girls…..Both did pretty good with Warren finishing 2nd in the shot put and she finished 1st in the discus….While many of the tracks are in need of repair, many of our track programs are dropping down……

    If you have some inside news on the track, send it our way and we will print it…..We could go get the numbers from the, but we need you the reader and track insiders to send us the real inside on this…..I was out this morning running and I saw a few birds that I hadn’t noticed before, but that’s not news that will draw any readers…..I go down to the local track at A&T and I out-run one of the girls from the local high school that did the 400 in one minute, now that would draw some attention…..One minute in the 400 seems doable…..The 400 has to be the same as the 440 from years ago, so the one minute time does seem doable…..That is what I always go by, can you match the numbers of what the kids are doing today? I did about 25 40’s on a side road on Saturday afternoon, so I am still doing my research…..

    If I can do 4 one minute 400’s, then either I am at the 4-minute mile mark and in the Olympics or I am teaching first grade math or arithmetic at the local primary school…I won’t be teaching spelling if arithmetic goes arithmatic…..Saw that word spelled somewhere the other day, and hadn’t even seen that word in about 25 years…..

    Let’s see if anyone else has any info for us????? Also contact us at

  4. Will do. For starters the 3-A State Championship is Friday at North Carolina A&T and the 4-A State Championship is Friday. I believe the 1-A and 2-A are the following weekend, but don’t hold me to that just yet.
