No salary cap for Maine athletics
Another belated update: a committee of the Maine Principals’ Association voted last week not to go through with a proposal to make across-the-board cuts in state high school sports, excepting reductions in the number of teams allowed in postseason play and a few other trims here and there. There had been talk of cutting games out of the regular season, restricting travel and other means to reduce the growing athletics cost burden. Instead, the local schools have to make their own cuts, thus showing the buck-passing skills principals are noted for.
However, on the flip side the New York Yankees of Maine school districts do maintain the right to buy a $35,000 commode on legs if they so wish.
And, no, “$35,000 commode on legs” is not a euphemism for a crappy football coach.
