Face masking photo should prompt discussion


On Sunday there was a dreadful photo displayed on the front of the U-B sports section. It showed two high school football players with their hands gripping each other’s face masks.

The caption noted that this infraction, though clearly photographed, was not observed or called by the officials.

One can only hope the coaches used this public photo of clearly dangerous behavior as an opportunity to have a serious discussion with their players. Think of the outrage had one or both of these players been injured by this illegal behavior.
