Local school boy James Carmichael (17) has decided he no longer “wants to play” lunch time handball after he received a “dog shot” in the back left corner. The catch: Carmicheal was the only student that had a handball with him at the time of the event, and he “wants his ball”.
One student, Jack Brown who witnessed the scene claimed, “He can’t hack it. He is such a ******. He will probably just go to the back quad and play with the Year 8’s or something.
“There is no way he ‘doesn’t want to play anymore’ – he just want to line up again.”
The rules of the game state that once out, you go to the end of the line no matter what square you are in. Carmicheal, differently, claims – “I just don’t want to play today. And it’s my ball. And, that was a dog shot anyway.”
Just as Carmicheal was fleeing the scene the teacher on duty overheard the commotion. Upon approach she asked the boys, “are you playing by the official school handball rules?” – the school introduced a strict guideline after fights were breaking out over different handball codes; and Carmicheal was quick to claim, “NO! Let’s start again – with the other rules.”
