What They're Saying
September 11th, 2009 8:45AM



"It's going to be a disaster. Am I going to do everything I can to make this program go? You betcha. But I read the handwriting on the wall, and it's not going to be pretty."

-- Alan Wharton, a referee assignor for New York's Public Schools Athletic League, on the projected 50 high school programs (25 boys and 25 girls) that might disband because of lack of players. This follows the move to shift the girls season from the spring to the fall, as part of an agreement made by the New York Department of Education and the New York Civil Liberties Union after a lawsuit was threatened. (Girls want to be able to play for club teams in the spring when they can be seen by colleges.) (New York Daily News)
