Rules are rules, and free buffalo wings are on the forbidden list: Adam Winegarden, coach of the Tuscaloosa County High School football team thought it would be a nice idea to give some of his players gift cards to a local Buffalo Wild Wings after they won the season’s opener, a 24-21 squeaker. Alas, he had not studied the rule book of the Alabama High School Athletic Association reports the NY Post. The gift of wings changed the kids’ status from amateur to professional, defined as anyone “accepting remuneration for playing on athletic teams …”. Their team’s victories were forfeited and the players banned from future participation. It is not known whether the players elected a 6-wing order at $19.99 or naked tenders at $8.99. Or whether they will be declared ineligible by the NCAA if they go on to college athletics, not easy to do without a performance record in high school.
