A Minnesota youth basketball team has been ejected from a league for being too good and now the coach, parents and players are crying foul.
The Rogers Area Youth Basketball Association girls high school team was forced to the sidelines by the Northwest Suburban Basketball League -- and it’s all because the team is 3-0, Fox 9 reported Saturday.
“We found out Friday at lunchtime that we’re not going to be allowed because according to the league our girls were too talented,” coach Jason Hanauska told the station.
“Are we supposed to play worse just to make them happy?” team member Tessa McCarthy told the station

Please consider joining us as a coach, team parent, sport coordinator or board member. With each new season we have vacancies and needs in all of these areas so let us know if you'd be interested in becoming a part of the CDAA.
The Champlin Dayton Athletic Association is a volunteer organization that exists for the sole purpose of providing positive experiences in athletics for youth living within the boundaries of the cities of Champlin and Dayton, Minnesota.

High school? Really?! How long do teenagers need their hands held without facing a little adversity? This is nothing short of pathetic. But, if anything, I hope they at least give them participation trophies before giving them the boot. Participation trophies make everything ok. /sarcasm

I think I know why too. I know your post was meant to be light-hearted, but that isn't even the reason. It was not inner city black kids that came in and were better players. There is a picture of them on Fox news.
