In Response to Re: ESPN Top Ten Sports Scandals
[QUOTE]In Response to Re: ESPN Top Ten Sports Scandals : This proves everything I have ever said about you. You said that: "Where the dubious distinction of having spots in both basketball and football in the ESPN Top Ten Sports Scandals is part of its history." BC is not in the list of Sports scandals. That list is here: http://espn.go.com/page2/s/list/scandals.html
Now you are correct that BC is in the list of Gambling scandals. Do you not understand the difference between Sports and Gambling? Do you not understand that the Gambling scandals are a subset of sports scandals? The reason people don't respect you is that you lie and exaggerate. You could have said that BC was on the list of Gambling scandals. But that wasn't good enough for you you had to exagerate it to the Sports scandals. It's not enough to say that BC does a bad job compared to HC and ND on alumni giving you pronounce it "pathetic", which is untrue. It is not enough to say that you didn't like the firing of Coach Jags and Coach Skinner, you have to say that BC fires coaches at a rate that no other school does, which is untrue. I stand by my earlier statement. You said BC was on the list of ESPN's top Sports Scandals. It isn't. That is a lie. If you want to amend your signature to say that BC is on the list of "Gambling" scandals, I will accept that as your admitance that you previously were not telling the truth.

You're right - and you're wrong.
The dubious list on which alma mater firmly holds down positions 8 and 9 is neither the Top 10 Sports Scandals, nor the Top 10 Gambling Scandals.
Then what list is it?
The Top 10 Sports Gambling Scandals.
Now if that assuages your angst, that's a good thing.
But if you are an alum of BCI (nee BC), (and, based on your posts, I hope you're not) methinks you may be dismayed by your school being the only one in the country to hold such a "distinction;" that you may be hesitant to assail other schools; and that you may, in your heart of hearts, want to apologize to the old Putter for your childish rant that he is a "liar".
On second thought, you have not apologized for calling me a "bad Catholic" a homosexual, or for falsely alleging that I am wifeless. Whatever twisted condition moves to to such slander, I don't know.
But you are what you are - regrettably.
I did not say that no other college had a worst firing record than BCI. I did say - accurately - that with one exception (TOB, who had the foresight to get out of Dodge before The Gang of Two eventually came after him with guns blazing), Dear Leader has either fired or otherwise separated involuntarily EVERY coach in men's hoops and football since he took the helm in 1996.
That's called FACT.
What other schools have done is not relevant. Rather, any coach in those sports considering coming here must realize Dear Leader's strikingly frightening track record - and must ask himself if it's worth the near-certain termination to venture to Chestnut Hill.
Why, do you suppose, that no top-tier coach ever applies here for either of those sports? Or ever will as long as Dear Leader rules the roost as he does?
Finally, just when are those apologies due to arrive?
Or do "good" Catholics not do that?
