  • Third-grader told Peyton Manning jersey has gang ties

    Saw this on NFL.com and can't believe what is happening to our society. Didn't know where to put it so put it here.

    We've got a great story for everyone who hasn't come across enough idiocy on this glorious Wednesday.

    A third-grade student in Greeley, Colorado was told he could not wear a Peyton Manning jersey to school because, well ...

    "They told me I couldn't wear 18 anymore because it's a gang number and I had to take it off," Konnor Vanatta told FOX31 in Denver.

    The policy apparently doesn't allow six different numbers: 13, 14, 18, 31, 41 and 81. The policy also does not allow for common sense.

    "I'm pretty upset the schools have come down to this and I think they need to start paying attention to the education the children are getting rather than what they're wearing," said Konnor's mother Pam Vanatta.

          This sounds like the work of a disgruntled Tebow fan.

              Just... Just wow... Wow... That's all there is to this... So a kid can't wear a Dan Marino, Brian Griese, Peyton Manning, or Terrell Owens jersey to school??? That's ridiculous.

              If they want to go about banning clothes that could be loosely associated with gangs, they could go as stereotypical as it can be and ban Raiders jerseys.

                At the risk of being banned .... A few weeks ago a kid was banned from wearing her Brother's t-Shirt to school because he was in the military and she had his photo litho'd on the front of it. Others for wearing anything related to the military, Americanism, pride in your country, stuff like that. It is a sickening trend and policy these schools have implemented. Many are finding out about it only when it starts to affect them....

                    You got me laughing out loud here, Remedy. The first image that popped into my head when I saw this article was of Peyton trying to act gangsta, which is a hilarious thought b/c he's such a dork.

                        When you smell cow crap and a meat packing plant all day, this had to have been the highlight of this Greeley principal's day.
