Short and sweet: The CIAC “Score Management” committee — henceforth referred to here as the ‘Death Panel’ — has ruled that Northwest Catholic coach Michael Tyler will not be suspended for violation the 50-point policy in a 52-0 victory over Weaver on Saturday.
From the CIAC statement:
After a review of reports received from both schools involved and the game officials in regards to Northwest Catholic High School’s 52-0 varsity football victory over Weaver High School on Saturday, it has been determined that the proper sportsmanship protocols were followed, and that there was no violation of the CIAC Score Management policy by the winning school’s head coach.
Due to this fact the review committee will not take any action against Northwest Catholic High School in regards to Saturday’s game.
Well that’s a load off.
UPDATE: The Hartford Courant spoke to Weaver’s Kevin Quinn, who agreed with the ruling.
The world is safe from tyranny.
