It’s all fun & games until someone starts chanting. In an effort to make sports kinder, The Wisconsin Interscholastic Athletic Association (pronounced WAAA! released new guidelines on sportsmanship. Hoping to stop taunting & disrespectful behavior at school sporting events, they suggest replacing “inappropriate chants” with “positive cheers”.
No more booing. No more Na-na-na song. No more chants of “air ball”, “we can’t hear you”, or “warm up the bus”. Even chants of “U-S-A” have been classified as inappropriate. At the time of this writing, non-sexual hugs, and golf claps were still allowed.
So, what’s next for Wisconsin sports? Velveeta-ized cheese heads? Milwaukee Bucks replaced by gender-neutral deer?
