Ric is spot on. If this same school was having a Pajama Day, your choice is to either wear pajamas or follow the regular dress code. If a student came in wearing a Seahawks jersey on Pajama Day, he/she would receive the same treatment as the kid who wore the Steelers jersey.

If you don't agree with the rules, then fight to have the rules changed. But you can't pick and choose which rules you're going to follow and which rules you're going to ignore. Well, you can ... but there will be consequences.

Dude, not to be rude...but those of you saying "ohh he knew the rule you only have one choice and that's to wear the Seahawks jersey"...take that huge stick out of your ass. Seriously? This isn't a prison (it seems like it), but it isn't. Do people have nothing more to worry about than RULES these days? STUPID rules?

My father fought in the Pacific in WWII. He had his right arm and left ear blown off by shrapnel, and waited in No man's land for 4 hours until it was finally safe for someone to come out and get him. He never complained about it. But we have people bitching and moaning because a kid wore the wrong jersey to school on purpose (what a terrible crime), and then we also have people defending them? Is that some kind of joke?

Apparently those of you that follow the rules, you would have been thrilled to wear your uniform on Friday. You get to watch all of your friends wear their Seahawks jerseys, but uh oh, since you aren't a Seahawks fan, too bad for you. I don't know about you folks, but that's not how I do things. If its Seahawks day, or Cowboys day, or whatever the hell you wanna call it day, I will wear my damn Steelers jersey no matter what the rule is.

When people take their lives and jobs so seriously that they are going to kick a kid out of school where he is required by law to be to get an education, man, you have a SERIOUS problem.

I think the difference between this is, Seattle fans are still bitter about Sb XL. I wouldn't be surprised if that was the case to send him home. That's total discrimination. He should be able to wear what color jersey his team is. But sending him home for wearing Steelers Jersey? It's stupid! And if your on facebook, you should see the crap they give this boy for wearing that jersey. The comments are outrageous. Smh
Yeah, we had a couple people at my school like that. One was a Browns fan, apparently had a lot of family in Cleveland(sad story haha), another was a Bears fan. They never got sent home, but we talked shit on them all day lol. All in good fun though. Sending a kid home over it is really being a POOR SPORT. Ironically, in related news, Sea Hawk fans excel in poor sportsmanship.

mcg24, I understand your argument, but you're arguing from an emotional standpoint. You make it sound like following rules is a bad thing. Kids think they can do whatever they want to do and there's no repercussions. Back when I was in school, if I broke the rules and got into trouble, not only did I have to face the music at school, but my dad would kick my ass when I got home.

The message here isn't just about whether the kid should have been allowed to wear his Steelers jersey. It's about respecting authority and following the rules. Even as an adult, there are rules I disagree with. But I have to follow them. If I don't, then I get into trouble. What kind of message does it send to a kid when you tell him, "F**k the rules ... do whatever you want?"

"Kids think they can do whatever they want to do and there's no repercussions."

Or maybe they don't understand the rules or don't agree with them so they don't care about the repercussions.

"Back when I was in school, if I broke the rules and got into trouble,"

One word sums that up. Trouble. You should never get into trouble for wearing a shirt that is not revealing or offensive to anyone. I don't care what the "dress code" is.

"It's about respecting authority and following the rules."

I'm sorry, but I only respect authority that I believe deserves to be respected. These school authorities in Seattle seem like total tools, and I would not give them the least amount of respect.

"Even as an adult, there are rules I disagree with. But I have to follow them."

No you don't, you choose to follow them. As long as I know I am not offending someone that I respect or care about, I will never follow a rule I disagree with.

"What kind of message does it send to a kid when you tell him, "F**k the rules ... do whatever you want?"

The kid is wearing a Steelers jersey because he is a Steelers fan rather than a Seahawks fan. He is not wearing a man thong and a Swastika T-Shirt. But you know what, since you bring up that point, if I see a rule to be completely ridiculous and unnecessary, I will be the first person to tell a kid "F*ck this rule, you won't be getting any punishment from me if you break it." Well, I probably wouldn't drop the F bomb, but you catch my drift.

So if your boss at work orders you to wear a company polo on friday if you have one, if not, suit and tie like normal. You wear your steeler polo. That is not following the rules.

The Seahawks' presence in the playoffs is inappropriate.
