297-Pound Elijah Earnheart Banned From Pee-Wee Football In The Dallas-Fort Worth Area, Mudshark Mom Cries Foul

A 297-pound 12-year-old boy in the Dallas-Fort Worth area who is six feet tall is being denied the opportunity to play pee-wee football because he is more the twice the maximum 135-lb weight limit for other seventh-graders in the league, and his mother and his prospective coach are crying the blues. Elijah Earnheart had been practicing with the Mesquite Vikings, a Pee Wee Football Association team, for several weeks, but during a preseason weigh-in, he was told he’s too big and cannot play.

His mother, Cindy Earnheart, is crying the blues. She said she was incensed and Elijah was humiliated. "They would not even let him weigh in on the scales like every single boy out there," she said. "He might be the size of a grown man but he's 12 years old and he has feelings, too." Cindy claims the league is discriminating against her son, but shows absolutely no concern for the safety or welfare of smaller kids, saying "Isn't bigger better in football? Football is a contact sport. If you don't want your son tackled, get him off the field." Cindy is also planning a protest, including signs and shirts that read “Let Elijah Play.” KSL news video embedded below:



Coach Marc Wright is also protesting the decision, claiming that other seventh-graders are over the weight limit but haven’t been banned. He notes that overweight players must wear the symbol "X" on their helmets, and they're restricted to playing either on the offensive or defensive line. But Mesquite Pee Wee Football Association President Ronnie Henderson says that's not good enough, because safety is a legitimate issue. "We've got little boys that play against him that are 85, 95 and 100 pounds," Henderson said. "We have to look out for all the kids, not just him." Furthermore, the "X" rule is intended to apply only to sixth-graders who can weigh as much as 160 pounds. Henderson said they banned three other players the same day for the same reason, and will not reconsider.

Update August 18th: Coach Marc Wright has now been fired by the team president, who said he was out of line.

So why doesn't Elijah Earnheart play on his middle school team? Because he feels he's not technically ready for that level of play, and wanted to "feel his way" in pee-wee football first. Plus, he doesn't want to go play for somebody else he doesn't know. Awww, too bad, so sad; apparently the thought that he could fall on a 90-lb kid during a game and crush his sternum hasn't occurred to him. Just another black kid looking to take the easy way out.

An unscientific online poll being conducted by KLIX 1310 indicates that over 64 percent of respondents think Earnheart should be allowed to play despite the gross weight disparity.

Wow, gruesome photo of mudshark and offspring.

I can see where the boy gets his "girth" with that "White Whale" mama.
Funny hearing that bs about "mixed kids are beautful." Hmmm. Not from what i've seen. The media started that bit around the time mulatto "actress" Halle Berry started to become popular.

Probably on a healthy KFC/McDs/Hostess diet. That'll make a champion! Blacks do have the poorest diets of any group in America. No doubt due to racism.

Where's the dad?.....never mind. :)

Okay, time to mobilize NAACP, Jesse, Al, etc. Get yo black asses to Texas and kick up a fuss!

Talking about freaks, the NSM state leader of Nevada, has been arrested for raping a 11 year old girl! This cretin is covered in satanist tattoo's and reminds me of the devil himself. Check out one peoples project for a picture of this turd. Kommander Jeff Schoep, you sure managed to gather together the worst collection of misfits that the world has ever seen, and you dare call them "National Socialists"? Of course, you yourself being married to an arab, who has a black child are hardly a posterboy for Adolf Hitler!

Anonymous 12:03 P.M. -- Thanks for the head up; I have just published a post on this story. It was actually a 13-year-old girl, just to set the record straight.

Suprisingly, this story never turned up on my regular Google searches using the terms "supremacist" and "neo-Nazi". The Vegas media did publish a number of stories.
