    PeeWee Kid Can't Play - Too Fat

    Report -- Texas Pee Wee football league bars 300-pound player - ESPN Dallas

    A Texas Pee Wee football league has ruled that a 300-pound seventh-grader is too big to play, according to Dallas-Fort Worth television station KDFW Fox 4's website.
    Couple things:

    How the hell is a 12 year old kid 6'0"+ and 300 pounds? Awful parenting.

    I don't understand how they can complain about it. It's one thing to have a 145 pound kid playing, a 300 pound kid is a totally different story. A 145 pound kid tackling and landing on an 85 pound running back is one thing, a 300 pounder would literally crush him.

    Lastly, the Association President is full of crap. "We have to adhere to the rule, but we'll let kids over 135 play if they have an X on their helmet."

    And I can't not include a Mike Gundy mention since the kid comes home crying to his mom because someone called him fat.

    I'm not sure how awful parenting leads to someone being over 6 ft tall. There must be a lot of awful parents in the NBA.

    I will agree this is a little overweight for a 6' tall person but so is the entire country right now. Its not like they have to use a crane to get him out of the house.

    Teaching this kid early that being fat sucks, unless you're good enough to play in the NFL.

    Maybe they should ban the little pansies instead . . .

    It's in Texas, why can't they have a 200+ league?

    Re: PeeWee Kid Can't Play - Too Fat

    This is totally ridiculous. The kid doesn't want to play in a school league that has kids in it that are still probably 175 lbs lighter than him because they have more experience. C'mon kid sack up, you are huge and could probably kill one of those kids if you really tried.

    Also, the coach saying he could just wear an "X" on his helmet and play oline or dline is a moron. Can you imagine this kid pancake blocking some poor 135 lb kid on a run play.

    The kid needs to do what every other kid in the history of big kids and sports did and play up an age bracket. Quit crying.

    Sorry for the lack of clarity. Letting your 12 year old get to the 300 pounds is ridiculous. That's mostly fat because the kid hasn't had a chance to develop muscle yet.

    Re: PeeWee Kid Can't Play - Too Fat

    The news story I watched said they have a league available to him thru the school system. He doesn't want to play in that league because he hasn't played football before.

    So he should just play in the school league and learn how to play football in practice.

    Re: PeeWee Kid Can't Play - Too Fat

    Not having played before isn't the pre wee league's problem. He should just man up and play on the 7th grade team. He'll still be twice the size of anyone else and it'll give him better instruction in the game.

    I say fatty needs to loose some weight... Hmmm maybe go on a diet... Eat a salad... Maybe skip a meal.

    Re: PeeWee Kid Can't Play - Too Fat

    My son - roughly 95 pounds at the time - played against a 5'10" 225 lb kid in 5th grade football in WDM (big kid was from Carroll). Kid lined up at guard, my son at DT. Wasn't pretty but he lived, even with the mountain of a kid landing on him on one play.

    I'm guessing this 300# can't hardly move. Hard to hurt someone if you can't catch them.
