Hey “Wet Dream Basketball Team”, Maybe Don’t Put “Knee Grow” or “Coon” On The Back Of Your Jerseys Next Time

Hey “Wet Dream Basketball Team”, Maybe Don’t Put “Knee Grow” or “Coon” On The Back Of Your Jerseys Next Time

Source  –  A boys basketball team has been kicked out of a Cincinnati-area recreational hoops league for wearing uniforms bearing a sexually suggestive team name on the front and racially objectionable names on the back.

Four weeks into the Cincinnati Premier Youth Basketball League’s season, parents of players on a team from West Clermont, Ohio, saw that the team from Kings Mills, Ohio, against whom their children were playing was named “The Wet Dream Team.” They also noticed that the names on the backs of the high-school-aged boys’ jerseys included phrases like “Knee Grow” and “Coon.”

Tony Rue, a parent of a West Clermont player, highlighted the eyebrow-raising jerseys in a lengthy Facebook post asking how such attire, and such a team name, was deemed appropriate for a league that hosts players from grades two through 12.

“By no means are we perfect parents or assume our teenage boys are innocent and don’t speak of things like this, but I could never imagine allowing my teenage son to represent his school and league in this manner, let alone representing our family with such filth,” Rue wrote. “[…] There is enough hate, bullying, and aggressive behavior in the world that these kids, parents, and schools shouldn’t have to deal with bigotry and lewd innuendos on jerseys and in team names in a school district represented recreational basketball league. This isn’t a typo, this isn’t a mistake, these are ideas that were thought of, discussed, agreed upon by adults and kids alike, printed on uniforms, social media accounts registered and manned and no one thought this was a bad idea or inappropriate?”

“It was so blatant that it had to be fake,” Rue later told Chris Mayhew of the Cincinnati Enquirer. “Sadly it wasn’t.”

So Rue raised a flag with a rep for the youth league, wondering how this team was being allowed to play with stuff like this written on its uniforms.

“I think he called people above him, and about midway through the second quarter, he came and got the refs’ attention and told him the game was over,” Rue told Karin Johnson of Cincinnati NBC affiliate WLWT-TV. “It was called. We weren’t going to be a part of it.”

And now, the “Wet Dream Team” won’t be, either.

Poor “Wet Dream Team.”  They had it all figured out and thought no one would catch on to the racist last names, but alas, most people can read.

I wonder if they counted on every single player, ref, fan, parent or friend is just as stupid as they are.

Men’s rec league hockey isn’t much better.  I was asked to play for a bunch of guys on the “Dirt-ride-Hers” a few years ago.  Not because I can play, rather, I could drink.   They showed me a picture of the jersey (a woman on all fours) and told me the best part was “everyone has the same number bro….69!   Thinking they were smart the 69 was printed sideways, so no one was the wiser.

I declined (mostly because I had no desire to play two times in one night as that was drinking time) but watched part of one of their games.   They lost 10-3 to the “Beaver Destroyers” and someone with the last name “Colonel – Lingus” scored six goals.
