    First of all I have sat in more rain games than I would have liked to, but that was the decision and because my boys were playing there I sat. And there is a very big difference in RAIN and LIGHTNING. And at the high school level you will not stay on the field if it is lightning. And in case you can't figure this out on your own that is for the protection of the players and fans. Football is a contact sport(some of you must not realize that by your comments)so lets not add more elements for the kids to get injured, like RAIN OR LIGHTNING! I have been through 2 concussions with one of my boys and let me tell you it is not fun at all, but he loves the game and would play 24/7, 365 days a year if there was a place to play. Now to LS in Greenville-we are talking about high school football not college, therefore I would not call our kids spoiled it's called HIGH SCHOOL! And by reading these comments none even know what lightning is so I am sure they have no idea about a lightning rod!!!

    Once the game begins, the officials are the only ones in charge. They are the ones that are able to delay or even cancel a game due to field conditions. If it gets too dangerous, a set of officials could technically call the game off. It doesn't happen that often, but it could happen. Now if there are other weather factors, they go by the state laws.

    The officials have nothing to do with the decision. They are lucky to even be notified of changes.

    I can't wait to see how many of these people that are badmouthing the schools decisions to reschedule the games, will be sitting in the seats during the rain, wind, AND lightning. I guess the good point in playing during the storms is that the players will be lower to the ground than these folks sitting in the stands. Can you say LIGHTNING ROD??

    A 4:30 game that's delayed an hour by thunder ends at 7:30. The same delay for a 7:30 game would end the game at 10:30.

    It's thundering now and has been for about an hour. So what is the difference between 4:30 and 7:30.

    The games can continue in the rain, however according to the high school regulations, no athletic event can take place outside during a thunderstorm. At least by moving the game up, it's not being rescheduled for a Monday night.
