This whole thing reminds me of a bunch of high school kids. Torg is the guy who likes to talk about people behind their backs. Sportsbybrooks is the guy who likes causing drama so he goes around telling everyone what person A said about person B. Herbstreit is the tattle tale who runs to tell the principal about it. Howard's wife is the overprotective mother who throws a fit anytime their kid is picked on. Desmond is the popular jock who realizes that person A is so insignificant that he is not really worth his time, so he doesn't really care, but everyone around him blows it out of proportion. The radio station is the principal who gets tired of the drama so he gives person A detention, and then hears from the superintendent (ESPN) that detention is not enough, so now he has to suspend him.
All of the drama could have been avoided by:
-person A (Torg) not talking about person B (Howard) behind his back
-the drama lover (Sportsbybrooks) not trying to create drama
- the best friend tattletale (herbstreit) not getting involved
-the overprotective mom (Howard's wife) letting her son (Howard) deal with his own problems
-person B (Howard) talking to person A about it personally if he does have a problem with it or talking to the principal and/or superintendent, along with his mother and friend if he doesn't have a problem with it.
I don't miss high school!
