very simple. the game was pure politics. you're right-mooney was not going to lose the game. because it was decided by officials, and those in a higher command than the kids actually playing the game.ursuline was robbed. pitiful. just pitiful. poor kids.keep your heads up- you are, have always been, and will always be a better team.

The company does have cameras. But on that particular truck, it was broken. Those cameras cost thousands of dollars to replace or fix. The company is small, so paying for this was probably put on the back burner. They met Ohio regulations with back-up lights. People need to remember it was an accident.

BFI and Waste Management are both big companies. They have the money to install cameras that cost thousands of dollars that are constantly broken and needed fixed. Do your research before you go and attack a small company. Phoenix Disposal met Ohio Law with back up lights. And how are you supposed to get out of your truck and sit there and look for traffic when it is on a busy street? By the time you get back in, turn it on, get into gear, and look again, the traffic could be back. Please think before you speak.

Why don't you look at it from the driver's point of view? I find you sick for not seeing it both ways. There is a reason it is called an accident. There is no law in the state of Ohio about back up beepers or cameras. Witnesses have said the driver backed up very slowly and cautiously. There was no way to see a man in his blind spot. Yes, it is horrific that the man killed leaves behind his children, but the driver has to live with his death for the rest of his life. It was an accident. In no way did he want to run him over. Please think before you speak, please. And no, I do not think the sentence is fair. He shouldn't have to even go for 90 days. But they had to sentence something. I think it is bad enough he has to live with this.

I'm happy to see someone else feels sympathy for the driver. It was an accident. It is Ohio law that says there doesn't have to be any backup sounds or cameras. I understand the man was blind, and my prayers go out to his family, but you can hear those trucks from a mile away. It was such a terrible freak accident. I feel for the driver, and the company.
