The new list of forbidden chants the Wisconsin Interscholastic Athletic Association have banned are:
• “We can’t hear you”
• “Air ball”
• “You can’t do that”
• “There’s a net there”
• “Season’s over”
"Not wanting to restrict creativity or enjoyment, an enthusiastic and boisterous display of support for a school's team is welcomed and encouraged at interscholastic events when directed in a positive manner. However, any action directed at opposing teams or their spectators with the intent to taunt, disrespect, distract or entice an unsporting behavior in a response is not acceptable sportsmanship. Student groups, school administrators and event managers should take immediate steps to correct this unsporting behavior."
The news of this outrageous ban by now has made it to students statewide, already resulting in one suspension of a student. April Gehl, a three-sport athlete at Hilbert High School in Wisconsin, was suspended five games from the basketball team for tweeting to the WIAA, telling them to "Eat [expletive] WIAA".
How the WIAA and high schools plan to enforce this or discipline students who do not abide by the new rule is not known at this point.
