Student Brandon Frost Sent Home from School for Wearing Colts Jersey

Last year in the playoffs, a Rockets fan got sent home from school for sporting a Ron Artest haircut. That seems to be a regular occurrence because the same thing happened to a Bengals fan a few months ago. Something about sports seems to bring out the passion in people … and the controversy. Take 17-year-old student Brandon Frost from Maurepas High School near Baton Rouge who says he was sent home for wearing a Colts jersey to school.

Each side predictably gave its version painting themselves in the best possible light. The school says that uniforms were relaxed to allow only black and gold colors on Friday as Saints fans were preparing for the Super Bowl. The kid says he was told “If you like Indiana so much, why don’t you go back?” by the school’s principal. Of course the father is to blame for giving his son permission to come home if he was hassled too much. Right — that’s the message you want to send a kid. Seems to me that the two wardrobe choices were the standard uniform or black and gold. If Frost didn’t want to wear Saints colors, why didn’t he just change into the normal uniform? Seems like an easy solution to me.

    Hate to be the grammar police but :The kid says he was told “If you like Indiana so much, why don’t you go back?” by the school’s principle. Should be PRINCIPAL.

    I know from my many visits.

    I think that is an utterly foolish position…

    “Seems to me that the two wardrobe choices were the standard uniform or black and gold. If Frost didn’t want to wear Saints colors, why didn’t he just change into the normal uniform? Seems like an easy solution to me. ” The school has no business trying to advocate for a professional football team. Not everyone in the school has to be a Saint’s fan. If they wanted to wear the colors of the school football team, then maybe, but otherwise the school should not be in the business of supporting an independent sports franchise. Or pushing one team over another, just because they are local.

    I applaud the father for allowing the child to stand up for himself.
