Exactly HOW does what he said affect his performance, or the kids he is coaching?
they must view it as reflecting badly on their school....good enough for me.

Well that's just a bias on their part isn't it?

He did not violate the law and what he did was on his own time.

except in this case his employer happens to be financed by the federal government... the very institution whose sole purpose is to defend the rights of the individual. irony.

Does matter if he works with children or not. Don't pull the "he agreed to the rules" because that isn't what your comment addressed at all; which in turn my reply wasn't about.

On the topic of the rules, if he agreed to them, and broke them, then sure... disciplinary action could be justified.

It said that he violated rule #1. Did I miss the name-calling?

Who among you would agree that if he had said the same thing about President Bush this somehow...someway...coincidentally not be an issue for the school?

They'd probably name the gym after him.

Upon his return to the high school, Volkmann was given a three-page letter explaining why he was punished. He was also forced to agree to not break four rules in the future. Those rules are as follows:

1. No disrespectful name-calling in interviews (ie. idiot, moron, etc.)

2. Canít wear White Bear Lake HS clothes while being interviewed.

3. No interviews on school property.

4. No calls for violence against any member of the school board.

Regardless of how you feel about those rules, those are the rules that Volkmann agreed to. He clearly violated that first rule with his recent comments, and is now being punished for it. That doesnít exactly sound unethical; it sounds like how rules work.

Someone please tell me which rule he broke? I admit that I skimmed over a few posts. Help a girl out here.
