I knew this would become a topic/discussion. I was just a week early last week after CO spanked Chino Hills.
We’re now at the part of the season where you start weighing “performance in their own corner of the world” vs. head to head results vs. how they’re playing NOW.
For Fred, if he’s going to hold true to what he said back in August, then Amat has to be No. 1 because they beat CO … and it should take an amazing set of circumstances to knock Amat outta No. 1. Again, that’s if you use the “Freddie in August” line of thinking.
Now, if you agree with my line of thinking that ranking teams that play across a vast range of divisions with a vast set of circumstances is an INEXACT SCIENCE, then you can start to argue why CO maybe should be No. 1.
You can see how Fred’s original line of thinking now creates problems. It is black and white, with no room for gray area. Hey, isn’t that supposed to me?
I think there’s tons of gray area when it comes to ranking teams that range from PAC-5 to Inland to Mid-Valley. There just has to be.
Personally, I leave Amat at No. 1. Their win over CO affords them the right to stay there another week. Their loss was to Alemany, which is no slouch. CO has been great since the Amat loss and is building a solid case in the “right now” department. But these rankings, both Fred and I would agree, are not a snapshot. They are a season-to-date resume. And if Amat is able to beat Crespi, Loyola and ND, they cement themselves as the legit No. 1. If they drop any of those games and CO keeps winning, then the Chargers go to No. 1.
Again, if Freddie is holding true to his line of thinking back in August, there should be no room in his mind for “right now” and “in their own corner of the world” arguments.
Lastly, under NO CIRCUMSTANCES can I see ANY team in the Tribune rankings beside Amat and CO ever being No. 1 the rest of the season.
Already trying to stir the pot eh Fred, BA stays on top.
Good analysis, Aram. Seems like some pretty air tight arguments. From someone who knows the teams. . . .
Its time for GANO to go! Why wait for season end? Save the money…
Everybody knows it run it’s course. Guy can’t coach at this level. PERIOD!
There is no way amat should drop to a team they beat . Charter oak is going to roll through there league because they have no one left to play . Inland division has only 2 power houses in Vista and Cc . Of course they are going to look good down the stretch . Amat has to play crespi,loyola and notre dame . 3 teams that would beat charter oak .Cant get away with the rankings this year . Amat an CO actually played.
When you LOSE you drop.
Unfortunately, Amat will stay at number one. As much as they chatter on this blog, I hope they realize they caught CO on a bad night. As for CO, what a time to play your worst football. But, that head-to-head still plays right now. If Amat loses again and CO continues to roll, CO does deserve the No. 1 spot. I don’t care who the team is, you can’t continue to lose and remain No. 1. I’m not so sure that CO would fold against the remainder of Amat’s schedule. Again, that 1st half is now coming back to haunt the Chargers. You cannot rule out their thumping of Chino Hills but as for right now – Amat owns the bragging rights.
Bonita obviously! But seriously, Bishop Amat got embarassed on the road and since the meeting with them the Chargers have just romped.
WHO CARES!! CO STILL CAN’T BEAT AMAT!! THINK CO HAS 1 LOSS? WONDER TO WHO?
Well if charter oak Is still in the conversation wouldn’t monrovia be in the conversation .they are also way better now and if they go unbeaten will hAve the same record as charter oak when charter gets eliminated in playoffs again .
Charter oak is terrible. Compared to all the Serra league that amat plays in charter choke would get demolished. No matter what bishop should stay #1 because Amat plays a MUCH harde schedule and Amat put a smack down on them which should have been worse just like every other year Amat has played little charter oak. When your proud of beating Glendora and south hills and teams like that, it’s embarrassing charter choke is nothing compared to Amat period.
If C.O. had a BETTER showing against Amat I could give them a # 1. They didn’t. IF Chino Hills barely lost to C.O. I could give them a nod. They didn’t…I hate to say it cuz I’m no Amat guy, but Amat is # 1.
Amat stays at no 1
What lengths Freddie boy would go for hits!! Amat stays #1….this is a no brainer Freddie boy!
So Fred, you think CO can beat Alemany ? NOT !
What a dumb question.
You lost to SH, enough said.
For now Amat remains number 1. But I’m beginning to think maybe Amat is a fluke this year. They obviously have no defense. They tied Chino Hills in a shoot out and gave up 56 points to Alemany. On the other hand CO took care of CH easily and their only loss came to Amat. Maybe Amat did catch them on a bad night. If Amat continues to lose and CO continues to win then you have to move CO to number one. Even though Amat beat CO in a head to head match up these power rankings are based on power and Amat lost and CO continues to roll.
Here we go again
Come on Fred. I mean, if Chino hills rolls after this and get further than Charter oak (but has more loses), is CH going to be ranked higher that a team who basically destroyed them ?
You guys keep saying that CO is a better team today than whey were earlier in the year, and while you might be correct in that assertion, the fact is…..so what ???
Look, the Lancers got beat by a better team last night. It happens, but if Amat were to lose each and every game the rest of the year, and if Charter Oak were to make a deep run in the playoffs, then which one of you two would sit here with a straight face and take CO over Amat, if they were to play in a game against one another ?
Look, the beauty of it all is that Charter oak gets to play Amat one more time NEXT year. For now, and for this year, the question at the top of this thread has already been answered….
Think about it like this…if a college team in the top ten loses and loses big to someone in the top 25 do they drop…yes and sometimes drop big.
Sure Charter Oak is playing very well and dominated a very good Chino Hills team, BUT, Bishop Amat beat CO handily AND lost to a better team, Alemany. In my opinion, BA is still the top dog
Amat hands down number 1 . @jmo . If charter oak is going to use the excuse that they are better now and played there worst game. Monrovia should be able to say they are better at the end of season if they win it all . Charter oak had to great games before amat and lost against amat . It’s not like they started slow .they beat Los al a week before .
I agree with Aram!..If Amat wins out! they stay #1..But what if Amat wins out & loses 1st playoff game & Charter makes the quarter or semi-finals then what?…One thing is for sure.. The next game will be crucial for Amat..
Why cant BA drop in the rankings? Chino Hills did and they truly should have gotten that win against Amat had it not been for a last second bogus call. So in all fairness Charter Oaks should be ranked above BA at this time, It’s not the end of the world, both teams still have a destiny to win and prove who should be ranked higher by the end of their seasons. If thats the case then You could still argue that Chino Hills has some say in all of this, remember they still tied the number 1 team and got smacked by the number 2 team. Stop listening to Fred’s BA formula’s in his mind they could never be anything but #1.
No ties to either school. I’ve seen both pay several times and saw the game head to head. Alemany would kick the snot put of CO. And SO looked horrible last night. Amat will always have the heads up game. And that game wasn’t even close. So Amat needs to stay regardless how the play out. Amat will beat CO 9 times out of 10. CO should win Sierra easily but they will always know Amat is in a different class of football. Amat hands down #1 in the SGV.
Put charter oak number one , who cares . It’s just a ranking . The head to head reality record it’s what reality matters. Not a formula by a bunch of old guys who didn’t play the big game. Charter oak got beat to a point they where frustrated and had to start a fight against amats best player.
I think it’s funny how some picked Damien to win the Sierra over CO, CH, Ayala and yes even Claremont and SH. What the heck is happening there? They have the talent. What is going on? Picked to win Sierra and now in last place?
Fred’s love of Amat reminds me of Steve Fryer’s love of Servite.
After seeing what CH did to Ayala last night, what CO did to SH last night, and the fact that ST. Francis is having their worst year in years, I DO know who will never be #1 in the All-Encompassing…
According to the “who beats who” theory, until someone from the Valley knocks Bishop Amat off their thrown, they will always be Number 1. Week after week. And running a Top 10 or Top 25 serves what purpose again?
If it goes off of wins/losses,and weekly performance ( like out in the rest of the real world ), then Charter Oak is THIS WEEKS number 1.
Of coarse, this all has to take into consideration if the Tribunes subscription rates will take a hit or not, since you guys have stated again and again that the content here is subscription/interest fueled.
CO holds excessively on every play. Last night they take one of their best tacklers in Alex Hernandez and put him on O line. Why? Well because he is a good tackler!!! Amazing!!! Now that’s good coaching. Hey, if you aren’t cheating you aren’t trying. The cheap shots CO gave out against Amat were pathetic. And Amat still crushed them despite all the CO players trying to twist the Amat helmets as if they were Linda Blair!!! Charter Oak plays classless. It will catch up to them come playoff time when they go up against better teams. Run it up against the South Hills of the world. They have shown what happens against Big Boy Football. “Oh, we are losing, might as well play dirty”.
Not So Observantcat – there may not have been a need for a last second “bogus call” if it weren’t for the previous “bogus calls” that prevented Chino Hills from getting blown out early
The theme of the officials kept coming up last night. There was the no call on an intentional grounding and a questionable roughing the passer on a scrambling QB who was already in the grasp when he threw the ball that led to two TDs. Add to that the dropped INT by Blue that could have prevented another score and you have an indifferent game,
But I want to to take a look at the Andrews catch at the 5:30 mark of Reg’s highlight video. Looks to me like he’s inbounds. Maybe Aram can do his freeze frame thingy like he did on the Chino Hills/Amat controversy and take a better look. That was a crucial “incomplete” in the final minutes that was followed by an Alemany TD drive. This game was WAY more evenly played than the score indicated.
BTW – Amat is still #1 by a WIDE margin
This is tricky. YES, Amat did beat CO, but Aram is right when there is grey area. You do have to remember that CO didn’t have Hauser until the week after, who knows what could’ve happened with that kid if he had played against Amat. Plus, you also have to remember that CO demolished Chino Hills 49-14 who Amat only tied 48-48. CO put up just as many points against Chino Hills AND shut out their offense. CO can easily beat Amat. Just depends on the circumstances.
In my mind, I am going to have to say if Amat loses again, they’re #2. (If CO goes undefeated the rest of league of course). Yes, you can say you beat CO and you’re automatically number one, but the fact of the matter is, you would be losing to teams on your level of competition in the PAC 5 while CO is winning on their level of competition in the Sierra. Just the way it is. Idk, just my thoughts.
Fred stated it last night that Bonita has the best chance to win a division crown in the SGV this year.Wild. After all is said and done it is the Hacienda that we look to, to bring home the bacon.
I do not think Amat is concerned to be ranked #1 in the SGV. Amat’s concern is winning aganist Crespi, Loyola and Notre Dame and entering the CIF play offs!
Hypothetical, Amat plays CO schedule and competes in the Sierra and the Inland. Co plays Amats schedule and plays in the Serra and the Pac 5. Over 5 – 10 years (not just one season) who has the better record?
. The only thing CO can say is they beat down Chino Hills who Amat tied. HOWEVER no matter what they say, CO didn’t beat Amat. They got handled by Amat. Hauser didn’t play, worst game of the year for CO..blah blah blah..Darren Andrews didn’t play the 2nd half either and the score was 30-7 before CO’s best defensive play was getting Andrews kicked out. POINT IS: Amat beat Charter Oak.
They lost, they should drop, enough said. However, in your guys little bowl…if they lose next week they are at least number two possibly third depending on if they get embarrassed again. This also requires CO to keep playing well though.
Lets be brutally honest here, Alemany’s football team is made up of the best athletes from the Pasadena area, 90% Afro-Americ kids. If you look at the schools ethnic make up its like 95% Hispanic. Yet Amat’s team ethnicity represents the schools population. Small latinos cannot compete with size and speed of those Alemany kids. Time to tap in the Monrovia, Duarte, Pasadena area kids if you ever want to win a PAC5 crown. I mean look at Ellis McCarthy 6’5″ 305 lbs his Mom went to Bassett HS, that SH kid Aiono kid 6′ 3″ 280 lbs lives in La Puente and he’s
in the Bassett school district. Time to recruit, i mean attract some speed and beef!
Charter oak will be ranked number 1 at the end of the year . There schedule will be easy all the way to quarter finals. Amat will be lucky to win 2 more games .just like every year. Settling it on the field does not mean anything anymore .
Hate to break it to you Game Time but you’re biased as hell. Bishop Alemany High School is not 95% hispanic. According to Great Schools: http://www.greatschools.org/cgi-bin/ca/otherprivate/9571#toc
50% Hispanic, 43% White, 4% Asian, 2% African American 1%< Native American/Alaskan Native. Granted these figures are from AY 07-08, it beats the biased crap you just threw down.
Ok fine would it be fair to say 98% non Afro-American student populaton. But you stll get the same results when you have 90% of the team thats Afro-American. Same logic. You just made my point clearer. Thanks bro!
In my humble opinion, not only does AMAT suck…
But CHARTER OAK is the number 1 team in the SGV…!
Not In 2012 AMAT…
Your fight is with Fred and Aram, CO fans keep BA at #1.
a outsider looking in. CO had a few more players than SH. i tell you after watching this game CO will win its first round playoff game. then it gets interesting. this kid from SH who plays QB. has alot of heart. good job CO.
In all honesty Fred, there should be two rankings. An ITOW (in their own world) ranking and a FOBT (flat out best teams) ranking. It would help clear “some” things up. And hey, more rankings=more hits! Win win!
STFU Bishop Amat…
We all knew that Serra is your down fall!
Charter Oak has 1 loss
Bishop has a loss against us (yeah, yeah, I know we tied but you know we kicked your ass!) and a loss to Alemany!
No doubt that Charter Oak is the best team!
Yo opino que los Lancers no sirven ni para limpiar nalgas. La liga Serra les va dar en el chiquito y no ms van a ganar un juego!
Amat no sirve ni para cruzar la linea…
Charter Oak es nmero 1!
Aye cayate pinchi pendejo!
Hello my crow eating Amat fans its your worst nightmare, thats right the Serra league aka Alemany league. Did you enjoy the Air show i told you guys it was going to be non-stop air action. Well like i said before your nothing compared to Alemany and it will remain that way.
How could anyone put Charter Oak ahead of Amat. Amat kicked CO in the teeth without possibly their best weapon after he got kicked out. Ask yourselves, if they played again who would win. Ask yourselves why is big Lou already trying o find ways our of the contract with Amat. Yeah, CO over Amat wow
In my opinion Amat should be tied for 1st with CO.
One reason why is because they tied CH who got destroyed by CO but CO played a kind of close one against Amat but amat finally plays a team on their level and gets completely destroyed which could had resulted in over kill but in the SGV Amat beat CO, CO beta CH who tied Amat so its sort of a 3 way tie with CH getting the least votes because they have no win against either team and Amat only has one withno loses but CO has 1 win and 1 lost. I vote 2 way tie.
If you notice some people are more worried about being ranked #1 in the valley than anything else. What a shame. How much will that be worth 4 weeks from now?
NonSense is a coward. Disappears for weeks. Idiot
All these teams should be worried about being number one in their own division at the end of the season. Number one in the valley is nice but does it come with a banner or rings. Is that not what the goal is?
Me la mama con sus amgdalas y le gusta por el chiquito!
Amat no sirve ni para cruzar la lnea
It always makes me chuckle when we hear that “teams are playing better” since the time they played Bishop Amat. Or how Amat must be playing “worse” now because games are closer or they drop a couple…in the Serra League/Pac5 and how they must have just caught Team XYZ on a “bad day” or in a down year. Yet this happens year after year, for the last decade and more, to the tune of only 1 SGV loss in the last 30 games or so. Sort of like how we hear about how well Monrovia is always playing at the end of the season…against Rio Hondo/Mid-Valley competition…and boy oh boy if they met your team now it would be a different story?
Could someone in the Valley beat them? Sure. I’ve said that every week for the past 4 years. Have they? Aram wrote after the CO game that Amat “needed” the win to eliminate any doubt in the mind of the valley. Well they did that even though Amat shouldn’t “need” a win over an SGV school to prove something that should be obvious to those who really know, understands, or pays attention to any games outside of the Fish Bowl. There should be NO doubt. I guess Fish Bowlers need to stand under a tree and get hit in the head with an apple to believe in gravity too. Just because someone “thinks” that winning the Mid-Valley or SouthEast or even some games in the Sierra League somehow makes a team better than a playoff team in the Pac5 doesn’t mean that’s so. Have we not seen why over and over and over again?
You probably need to consider just why one loss NCAA Division 1A FBS teams like USC, Stanford, LSU, Oklahoma, Georgia, Clemson and Texas were ranked ahead of undefeated teams like Rutgers, Louisville, Cincinnati, Ohio U, Texas-San Antonio, and Louisiana Tech? Much less why some undefeated D2 powers like Bentley, Emporia State, Tuskahee, Bloomsburg, or Shippensburg are in no way considered better than say the 2 loss Michigan Wolverines. And, if you were going to rank all college football teams, you wouldn’t dare say that Mount Union, who does more “in their corner” of the D3 world, even compare to FJR and Stevie’s beloved UCLA Bruins, who are dying just to get into a Bowl game.
I do realize its a fun debate, and no one likes one of those more than me, but there is really only one side to this onei. Really.
Joe…this isn’t about that, it’s about what have you done for me lately. Lately CO has killed, your boys just got molly whopped.
To Bishop Nomas, Member, this is the U.S., because ‘we don’t have no stinking badges.’ Please translate because we are not from East los esse. Did you or parents attend Garfield of Rooooooooooooosevelt? What a shame!
Hey MR fred,
Do you and everyone else a favor, call Lou and ask him who number one should be. Then all this nonsense you bring up will be settled.I will give you a hint, he will not say Charter Oak, (gauranttteeeddd)!!!
But i must say, you sure do get a lotta hits for such an obvious question.So i guess your doing your job.
they just dont get.
Saabes que? There’s nobody better than us Chicanos who think our sheeit don’t stink over here in Bridgetown. There’s no question. We throw the best tailgate BBQ and buy up all the Bud Light within a 5-mile radius on Friday nights. We are the undisputed number one in the valley. Outside of the valley? That’s another story.
I don’t think bishops amat is worrying about the rankIngs because they proved it on the field . Charter oak also knows they lost . Only one talking about rankings our the sports writers and adults who don’t knOw much .
A guy who lettered in soccer and tennis has created this mess is awesome.

Para el pendejo de La Puente,
Siempre sers el pedazo de mierda que lo sos desde 1995! Cundo ganes tu campeonato de CIF entonces puedes hablar. Para mientras Los Lanceros de La Puente son #2 in el SGV!
You crack me up out load every time you try to compare yourselves to a program like USC or Stanford! One minor detail Joe! Umm…you have to win in order to brag! You neither have the football players, the wins, or the academics to compare a lowly catholic school from La Puente to an elite academic institution like Stanford. You, Amat, are actually more like New Mexico State or UNLV. Even a small D3 school like Mount Union has more NFL players currently playing than your insignificant shanty in La Puente!
Bottom line, Charter Oak is ranked higher in CIF, MaxPreps, and in the State! All of those people outside this FJR fishbowl can’t be wrong!
Of Course, Charter Oak is number 1!
If Bishop Amat losses the last 3 games, does Hagerty get fired? 0 and 4 in the Serra will definitely require an entire change in the Amat coaching staff!
I hope they don’t fire Hags.. Their commitment to mediocrity is great for the rest of the Serra. Just saw their 15 minutes of fame on NBC – getting SMOKED by Alemany. Petros and Fred put A Mat on a skewer.
Those “Pac 5 Chumps” are the ONLY school to make the playoffs out of the Serra League EACH of the last 4 seasons. During that time neither Crespi or Loyola have won a league title, the others do. So who are the chumps?
The same chumps who had to get into the playoffs on a coin flip and not outright last year. Those same chumps. Now open another Bud Light, holmes.
I think some of us are missing the point here. Yes Amat had a better night when they beat CO, it happens remember “La Serna and Westlake”. But the main focus here is how can a team remain number 1 that didnt dominate the valley but GOT DESTROYED when they faced someone on their level. IMO Amat should definitely drop it would embarrass the Valley for a team who just got completely embarrassed still be considered or ranked the top dog.
LOL……..Please retire dude your comparisons are fetched. Your history lessons has ran its course let it go Amat is not the top dog like they USE to be. They didnt dominate the valley top teams nor did they completely dominate the other valley foes.
I’ll start to buy into the tribs “rankings” when Freddieis tall enough to go on all the rides at Disneyland(never)…how can c-choke even be in the discussion for #1.they lost ,at home by 2 plus touchdowns,end of story.put down the pipe
Your team completely dominated Amat from start to finish..The Warriors are looking good & perhaps ready to make some real noise in the Pac5..Good Luck the rest of the way!! Now with that being said…Shouldn’t you be blogging on threads from the SFV where all the Warrior fans can cheer on your beloved Alamany team? Just Say”N”..
Bishop Amat was complete female handled. No offense to all ladies of the SGV or to those in West Hollywood, but that team that showed up at Alemany on Fridat played like a bunch girls. They were afraid, intimidated, and demoralized! The Lancers were destroyed and humiliated! Your coaching staff was not prepared for our program and they were overwhelmed. Amat’s fans are embarrassing. You people actually were booing for your own team. Who boos their own high school football team? Even the refs were disappointed in you.
SHAME ON YOU AMAT FAN!
AMAT is not #1. The team and the fans embarrassing to the SGV!
Oh BTW here comes Crespi!
Bassett please make room at # 11! LMFAO!
As far as I’m concerned , drop us to where ever you want Fred as I have always said these rankings don’t mean much because there is no rhyme or reason to the movement on them . It won’t change the fact that we are the best team in the SGV hands down . The rankings should now reflect what a team does in their COTW , and not getting brownie points for losses. The tough part for you Fred is to weigh those COTW losses because you are giving points for losses . Maybe what gets all these SGV bloggers is that no matter what , in the SGV we live in, AMAT is the best on the field of the SGV teams and there is nothing they can do about it until someone from the “SGV” knocks us off on the field .Ask the CO honks , none of them are contesting AMAT at #1. In the PAC-5 , Serra it’s a different story of which many of these bloggers try to pass on losses to those teams they would never consider playing as a reflection of rankings in the SGV . Maybe you should drop AMAT from the rankings after league play begins for all teams . Because at that time we jump out of the fishbowl and into the ocean to swim . But then again you would be robbing some of these bloggers of the only glory they can muster against AMAT , because they sure as hell can’t do it on their own accord , they must become fans of our Serra league foes or PAC-5 opponenets come playoff time to get those licks in on us when we lose becaise as I said they sure as hell can’t depend on their own teams , isn’t that right Aaron ?????? Now it’s on to Crespi , you do know them don’t you, you should because you sure as hell will be rooting for them come Friday night and if you have the stones you will admit it .
Ranking Spot #11 – Here We Come!
CRESPI 34 – Bishop Amat 17
Amat’s season comes to an end and the highlight of the 2012 season becomes a pre-league victory over an evolving monster in Charter Oak.
Sorry 2012 Lancers! No way Crespi will allow you to win. Time to turn in your pads.
I agree with Amat 73…
BTW, does Alemany Crow taste like feathers??? Hello…? Amat Fan…?
@Fred-Why do you allow some of these “Knuckleheads” the opportunity to keep posting. The “takes” are racially offensive and offer nothing to the thread other than to down grade and ridicule a class of people. It might be different if it were just taunts at “Amat Fan” but the whole racially charged tirades are really uncalled for. Why give them a forum? Last I checked, this is a High School FOOTBALL Forum, right?
My congrats to Alemany, you were the better team and won! The refs. were not as bad as the refs. in the Chino Hills or Charter Oak games, but they came close. An onside kick that did not go ten yards and was awarded to Alemany, and resulted in a score. A completed pass for Amat that was called, ‘out of bounds!’ Who can say what the score would have been.
To Game Time,What do you mean Latinos can not compete aganist Alemany players. They did compete! They came within seven points of making the score 42 to 42! They scored three touch downs!
After Alemany scored two more TD”s, it’s preety hard to expect a team to score two more after scoring three straight! If you think Amat can not compete because in your words, Amat has, “small Latinos,”(Have you ever heard of Anthony Munoz?) How do you explain the Servite Game?
Well young man, perhaps you are not aware, American Football is eighty per cent phychological and twenty percent physical! Have you ever heard of this term before? Why do you suppose home teams are favorite for a game, thought home teams do loes? Why do cheer and yell leaders encourage the crowd to yell for a defense stance? Why do some teams give up, when the score is runned up? Except in the old Bishop Amat locker/shower, reads a sign in the Lancer’s Lair,”When the going gets tough, the tough get going.”
Finally, Bishop Nomas, why do you insist in acting like a dumb ass? No one is going to fire anyone at Amat! Why are you so concerned what occurs at Amat anyway? One last question, did you grow up playing soocer in yor native country, since you perfer to use Spanish, that most do not understand?
For most of you who are not aware, Bishop Amat was 95% White Anglo Saxon. No Blacks, until Ervie and lolita Jones arrived! Bishop Amat’s make up began to change around 1973,1974 or 1975.
These are just the FACTS:
Current Rankings by MaxPreps

These are the FACTS…
Any questions about who the EXPERTS outside the FJR & AT fishbowl say who is number one???
Of Course, Charter Oak is number 1…
At Black Tooth,
Is that what your dentist calls you? Or is that what your banjo playing friends call you? LMFAO!
Now who is the ignorant slut around here? The United States of America has never had nor will it ever have Anglo-Saxon citizens! Know why? Cus they all died off many centuries ago you dumb sh*t. What you think are Saxon people are merely white skinned people. Thats it! To have white people in La Puente 40 years ago is no different than most of this country entirely. However, to be multicultural and multilingual is now the common and the future. La Raza is now 15% of the US population and growing! You can’t stop this! I can insult in Spanish (porque yo soy inteligente y tu sos un pendejo) or I can do it in English as well, you dumb a$$.
Bottom line, Bishop Amat got their collective a$$e$ handed to them and CRESPI is coming to town. LMFAO!
Its over for AMAT. The 2012 season is over and Coach Hagerty needs to be fired for his failures.
These are just the facts.

Nonesenss by any other name is still a bunch of nonsense. Use your posted name piss ant and dont be like a Margarita Bill and hide under your skirt.
Warrior fan, I gave you props earlier in the week when your team won, but ill tell you one thing, and that is the same thing I told Margarita man.
At some point your going to lose and when you do, dont be a stranger in here.
Sure, you guys beat Amat, but so what ? It’s a long way to the championship game and so just see where we both end up at the end of the day.
BTW, one more thing, dont be in here talking all that smack because over the next few weeks anything can happen. If you dont believe me, just ask my silent friend margarita man…BTW where is he anyway ????
Oh and BTW, the fact is that you guys only got two wins so far and as far as I can see, Amat may still be able to do that and more in upcoming league play, so if I were you, id at least wait until the dust is settled.
You wouldn’t want to be looking at a scenario where Alemany loses all the rest of their games and where amat runs the table and your sitting here with the Amat homers debating over whos number three, Ala this sill Charter oak debate.
Would you ????
Football is : 40% scoring more points than the other team, 40% keeping the other team from scoring more points on you, and 20% cussing the coach out for not doing the first 2. *

LET ME BEGIN BY SAYING I AM NOT YOUR TYPICAL 2010-2011 HH WILSON PARENT, HOWEVER, WHAT I WITNESSED THIS PAST FRIDAY @ THE WILSON-NORTHVIEW GAME HAS ME SO UPSET THAT I WILL SUGGEST MY KID TO QUIT THE WILSON FOOTBALL TEAM. I’M NOT TALKING ABOUT X’s AND O’s. THE TEAM ITS NOT VERY TALENTED AND I DONT EXPECT THEM TO COMPETE FOR A LEAGUE TITLE OR ANYTHING ELSE. WHAT I WITNESSED CAME WITH ABOUT 3 MIN AND CHANGE LEFT IN THE GAME WITH THE SCORE NV 27- WILSON 7. COACH CHRISTOS CALLS A RUNNING PLAY AND HIS RB GETS CRACKED BY NV’s SAFETY. THE HIT WAS 100% LEGAL BUT IT WAS SO HARD THAT IT WAS HEARD ALL AROUND THE STADIUM. THE WILSON RB HIT THE GROUND AND IMMEDIATELY TOOK OF HIS HELMET WHILE STILL LAYING ON HIS BACK. THE GAME WAS STOPPED FOR ABOUT 30 MINUTES AND WAS TAKEN BY THE AMBULANCE. FROM PEOPLE THAT WERE ON THE FIELD, THE REFEREES SUGGESTED TO CALL THE GAME WITH A LITTLE OVER 3 MINS LEFT AND WILSON DOWN BY 20. CHRISTOS RESPONSE WAS “NO, WE STILL HAVE A CHANCE” MY RESPONSE TO THAT IT’S.. REALLY COACH?? YOUR OFFENSE HAS SCORED 20 POINT IN THE LAST 93 MINUTES AT THAT POINT. YOU MEAN TO TELL ME THAT YOU ARE GONNA SCORE 20 UNANSWERED POINTS IN 3 MINUTES?? I AM NOT ONE TO QUIT WHILE COMPETING, BUT SOMETIMES A KID’S INJURY ITS BIGGER THAN THE ACTUAL GAME. IF I’M NOT MISTAKEN, SOMETHING SIMILAR HAPPENED A FEW WEEKS AGO @ THE LA PUENTE-GLADSTONE GAME AND THE LP HC DECIDED TO CALL THE GAME. THATS THE TYPE OF COACH I WOULD WANT MY KID TO PLAY FOR, HE KNEW EXACTLY WHEN THE KIDS ARE BIGGER THAN THE GAME. COACH CHRISTOS I UNDERSTAND THAT THIS ITS YOUR 1ST RODEO, BUT IT DOESNT TAKE A GENIUS TO MAKE THE RIGHT CALL IN THAT SITUATION. I AM ALSO EXTREMELY DISAPPOINTED BUT NOT SURPRISED ONE BIT, THAT THE PRINCIPAL MS. ELENA PAUL OR THE AD MR. FESSEDEN DIDNT OVERWRITE THIS YOUNGSTER COACH AND CALLED THE GAME. LIKE I SAID, I’M NOT SURPRISED BECAUSE NEITHER OF THOSE 2 IDIOTS CARE ABOUT THE FOOTBALL PROGRAM… PARENTS PLEASE DONT ALLOW YOUR KIDS TO PLAY 4 THIS GUY OR THIS SCHOOL ANY LONGER!!!
