SAN FRANCISCO - A high school basketball tournament on the Northern California coast has become the latest flashpoint in the ongoing protests over police killings of unarmed black men after a school was disinvited because of concerns its players would wear T-shirts printed with the words I Cant Breathe during warmups. Jordan Poyer Jersey .The athletic director at Fort Bragg High School informed his counterpart at Mendocino High School this week that neither the boys nor girls team would be allowed to participate in the three-day tournament hosted by Fort Bragg High starting Monday, Mendocino Unified School District Superintendent Jason Morse said.The boys were reinstated after all but one player agreed not to wear the shirts inspired by the last words of Eric Garner, the New York man who died after an officer put him in a chokehold, while on the Fort Bragg campus during the Vern Piver Holiday Classic tournament, Morse said. Too few girl players accepted the condition for the team to field a tournament squad, he said.Mendocino varsity teams first wore the I Cant Breathe T-shirts before a game with Fort Bragg on Dec. 16, according to the girls coach, Caedyn Feehan. The girls also wore them before games at two other tournaments and didnt receive any blowback, Feehan said.I didnt even know what it meant. I thought it was a joke about how I had conditioned them so hard, Feehan said. None of the administrators knew what it was or that any of them were doing it in advance. This was entirely for their cause that they had strong feelings about.Professional basketball players such as LeBron James, Derrick Rose and Kyrie Irving wore I Cant Breathe shirts during warmups this month without repercussions from the NBA. After Kobe Bryant and other Los Angeles Lakers players wore them before a game and on the bench on Dec. 9, coach Byron Scott said he viewed it as a matter of freedom of choice and freedom of speech.Thats how Marc Woods, whose 16-year-old son Connor plans to sit out the tournament, sees it. Connor wore the T-shirt at the Dec. 16 game in the name of team solidarity, but the shirt has now taken a constitutional angle, the father said.Marc Woods said he brought the issue to the American Civil Liberties Union, and hopes to hear back after the holidays. He referred to a 1969 U.S. Supreme Court ruling, Tinker v. Des Moines, which found high school students wearing black armbands to protest the Vietnam War were protected by the Free Speech Clause of the First Amendment.This is completely a First Amendment issue, Marc Woods said. Thats why Im offended.Bruce Triplett, the athletic director at Fort Bragg High, did not return a call and email seeking comment. Principal Rebecca Walker issued a written statement Friday saying school administrators respected the Mendocino teams for paying attention to what is going on in the world around them and that the T-shirts were being prohibited as a security precaution.To protect the safety and well-being of all tournament participants it is necessary to ensure that all political statements and or protests are kept away from this tournament, wrote Walker, who said she was speaking on behalf of the athletic director and the Fort Bragg school superintendent. We are a small school district that simply does not have the resources to ensure the safety and well-being of our staff, students and guests at the tournament should someone get upset and choose to act out.Marc Woods, whose father was a California Highway Patrol officer, said he is outraged by what he sees as using intimidation to silence players and fans. Fort Bragg administrators have warned spectators who plan to protest the T-shirt ban that they will be asked to leave, he said.It doesnt take a lot to suppress the exchange of ideas when you put fear into it, Marc Woods said.Both schools are located in Mendocino County, known for redwood forests, rugged coastline and marijuana-growing, located 120 miles north of San Francisco. The student bodies at the two schools are 1 per cent black and 50 per cent white and 41 per cent Hispanic at Fort Bragg, 75 per cent white and 9 per cent Hispanic at Mendocino._____Associated Press Fresno Correspondent Scott Smith contributed to this report. Adolphus Washington Jersey . The win puts Arsenal four points clear of Everton in fourth place with two games to play in the Premier League, a position which would qualify the club for Europes top competition for the 17th straight year. Jim Kelly Jersey . Jones, from Winnipeg, built a 3-0 advantage after three ends by scoring two in the second and one in the third. Chinas skip Bingyu Wang cut that lead to 3-1 in the fourth before Canada added another three in the fifth for a 6-1 lead. http://www.shoptheofficialbills.com/Elite-Leonard-Johnson-Bills-Jersey/ . The former Edmonton Oilers defenceman was with the St. Louis Blues in training camp on a professional tryout. Whitney, 30, had four goals and 13 points in 34 games with the Oilers last season.CLEVELAND -- Jason Giambis 19th season didnt go as planned. Hes not sure there will be a 20th. As the Indians closed 2014 short of the playoffs, Giambi said Sunday he hasnt decided whether hell try to extend a major league playing career that began with Oakland in 1995. Ive been playing this game since I was five years old, the 43-year-old said before the Indians finished a three-game series with Tampa Bay. Thats your whole life. If you look at it, its 40 years of doing the same thing. Its been unbelievable. Its been fun. But, I still havent made a decision about what Im going to do yet. Who knows? Maybe somebodys looking for a broken down 44-year-old to kind of take a few extra hacks. Giambi didnt contribute much on the field this season. He broke a rib during spring training and began the year on the disabled list. He was also on the DL with a strained calf and sore left knee. Entering Sundays game, he was batting just .133 with two homers and five RBIs in 60 at-bats. However, Giambis influence off the field couldnt be quantified. The Indians re-signed him to a minor league contract after last season, knowing he would be a positive influence on young players throughout their organization. Giambi did just that as a role model, mentor and leader. He also graciously gave up his NNo. Jordan Mills Jersey. . 25 to Jim Thome, when the former Indians slugger wanted to retire with Cleveland. Giambi went to back No. 72, the number he wore when he first went to camp with the Athletics. Indians manager Terry Francona said everyone -- players, coaches and even a manager who has won two World Series titles -- learned from Giambi. This guy brings so much and hes so special to be around that you savour it and take what you can because he has a lot of offer, Francona said. With 440 career homers, Giambi is 41st on the career list. Hes not sure if that number will grow, and doesnt know what uniform hell wear next -- or if hell put one on at all. He was a finalist for Colorados managerial job in 2012 and Francona knows Giambi is going to do whatever he wants to do. For now, Giambi is only making one off-season commitment. Ill go home and enjoy my family, he said. Thats the biggest thing Ive got on my plate right now, just go home and enjoy every minute of that. And then Ill worry about what the universe has got in store for me next. I have not made one decision. Theres some teams Im sure that have kind of been asking my agent what Im going to do, but I dont even want to know who it is. I dont care right now. I just want to go home and enjoy my kids and have fun. Cheap NFL Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys Wholesale NFL Jerseys Jerseys From China Wholesale NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap Jerseys ' ' '
