CMS moves football games to Saturday for next 2 weeks

Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools usually play high school football games on Friday. That will change the next two weeks, when some CMS teams will play on Saturday.

There will be eight games played on Saturday, Sept. 11 starting at 7 p.m., and there will be five more played on Sept. 18. Those games will start at 8 p.m.

The games were moved in deference to two major Jewish holidays. Rosh Hashana begins at sunset Sept. 8 and runs through nightfall on Sept. 10. Yom Kippur starts at sunset Sept. 17 and runs through nightfall on Sept. 18.

CMS didn't move the Sept. 18 games to Monday, Sept. 20 because it usually reserves Mondays as an alternative playing date if regularly scheduled games are postponed due to inclement weather. Instead, it pushed the games back an hour later than usual.

The new schedule:

Friday: Vance at Sun Valley; Berry at Forest Hills; Waddell at Porter Ridge

Saturday: Hopewell at Providence; North Meck at Myers Park; Independence at W. Charlotte; Richmond Senior at Butler; West Meck at East Meck; Harding at South Meck; Weddington at Ardrey Kell; Garinger at Hough

Friday, Sept. 17: Ardrey Kell at Marvin Ridge; Mallard Creek at Chester, S.C.; Berry at Monroe Central; Waddell at Greensboro Smith; Butler at Lenoir Hibriten

Saturday, Sept. 18: South Meck at West Meck; Independence at Vance; Harding at Hopewell; Rocky River at Garinger; Ashbrook at Olympic

These are public not private schools. Check the 1st amendment. Why was this never done in the past? Christmas is a Congress approved national public holiday. The policy in question is illegal and needs to stop.

Seriously? I can't believe we manage to get ANYTHING done in this country today, given all the different groups, ideologies, and religions we have to pander to. Maybe that's why we AREN'T getting a lot of things done.

According to the latest census data, 1.8% of Mecklenburg County is Jewish. Why in the heck are we moving football games to accommodate 1.8% of the population? What about the other 98.2% of the population that this greatly inconveniences?

CMS has some major issues with the head-up-butt disease that they can't seem to shake.
