Sometimes there are situations where everyone thinks the student athlete's transfer is a good move. And the 'loyalty' notion - -even from quarters that occasionally voice it - conveniently vanishes.
i understand there are many other valid reasons for student transfers.
but if its simply play me or i'm gone then the term "student/athlete" is lip service.
(locally, word is that joe montana pulled his son out of one high school with a very good football program when his son was not named starting qb.)
so far i have not heard anything at the grammar school level but am waiting.
Got it. (I thought you meant all student-athlete transfers are disloyal and therefore transferring is a bad thing.)
I would caution, of course, that there is always a question of "did he fall or was he pushed" when a schollie student athlete transfers (especially in the category of student athlete who is not on the starting team). It should come as no surprise that schools may "strongly encourage" schollie student-athletes to transfer (especially those who may not be particularly productive and are non-starters). In those situations (unless you are on the inside it is an unknown) it would be foolish to label transfers as disloyalty by the student athlete (one could argue that sometimes it is the opposite).
