LHSAA Director In Trouble After “Dumpster Fire” Comment
The LHSAA battles have been front-page news for most of 2016. Whether you agree with their recent moves, their reactions, or the outcomes, you've been paying attention to it.
Now there's a new wrinkle to the fold, as LHSAA Executive Director Eddie Bonine has decided to put the laser-focus on himself through his comments. Here's the latest development from the Louisiana Radio Network:
"LHSAA Executive Director Eddie Bonine is not sorry about a report that is widely circulating online where he calls the Louisiana high school sports landscape “a proverbial dumpster fire.” He did say that it was never meant to be distributed to media outlets, as the comments were given to the National Federation of High School Associations Summer Meeting this week in Reno, Nevada. He went as far as attaching a picture of a burning garbage container. Bonine issued a statement saying, “The phrase was used as it pertained to our association ‘not being on solid ground as it pertains to finances, perception and good standing with our membership.”
