Can someone explain the gesture the boys are making when they come out of the lockers? Looks offensive to me. I pick the girls' video.

Did anyone at Patch watch boys video before posting?

Lewd and crude if you ask me! Sara, could you please explain? Clearly, there is some concern here within the community and you have no comment as to the content (and context) of your posting. As editor, you certainly should defend your article and offer a response.

Sue, the boys are imitating how grandpa uses a walker. What did you think? Looks like good kids having fun and blowing off some steam. Relax Commack Mom. some people are just so uptight.

Matt, not so much concerned about the 'good kids' having fun. I know and YOU know what they are doing! HOWEVER...my gripe is with the lack of response from the editor. This isn't the first time she has ducked out on concerns raised by readers. To me, it shows a complete lack of care toward her audience.

just wanna say that Sue and CommackMom are completely overreacting. if any of you guys were really into the school you would know that the boys won a huge playoff game against a league rival. just some fun in the locker room for young athletes. get more involved with the school and their athletics before you go bashing it.
