Stop the madness.
Allow the teams to play their Week 9 games as planned this coming weekend, which will allow time for our towns to also recover from a potential snowstorm.
Then take these Week 8 games, put them on the week of Nov. 17 and stop trying to shoehorn an FCIAC championship game in there just because Trinity still has a shot to make it (and you might make some extra cash.)
We all feel for Trinity. But this is real life. We just got hit by a hurricane, or a superstorm or whatever they’re calling it. Our shorelines are devastated. Fairfield, Norwalk, Ridgefield, Trumbull… they haven’t had school all week.
St. Joseph and Bassick can’t find a field with lights on which to play Thursday.
More than half your schools haven’t held a legit practice in almost a week.
Now, before we really get a chance to catch our breath, we could be slammed by another storm come Thursday — the same day you want everyone to play Week 8.
It’s time to ditch this crazy notion that we might play an FCIAC championship separate from Thanksgiving.
It’s time to do right.
It’s time to follow the lead of the SWC.
Dump the game before there’s no more time to play any regular-season games.
Time is running short.
