DARE Dumps Trail Blazers

Anti-Drug Program No Longer Accepts Tickets

PORTLAND -- The anti-drug program DARE has cut its ties with the Portland Trail Blazers.
The Blazers have provided free game tickets for children, but DARE officials say they're not going to accept them until some of the players clean up their acts.

"We are about making good choices and picking role models. And the kids are pretty keen -- they don't get a lot past them," DARE educator Deputy Mike Olds told KOIN 6 News.

Team officials would not comment on the DARE program but pointed out that other community groups, such as the Portland Police Activities League, support the team.

LOL. Unlike the Jail Blazers during a traffic stop, I sincerely hope the DARE people don't hold their breath waiting.

That is awesome, it's funny how Portland officials come up with excuses...

Reminds of the Cowboys in the mid to late nineties. Hmm.

Dare should do the same with the Rockets as well. That is if they are even involved with the team anyway.

Why now?

Sounds to me like they have another issue with the team and they are grandstanding by making this announcement public.

They already have that. It's called speed.
