I mean if you don't know baseball, why hire scouts when you have all kinds of players in the minor leagues?
I really think her comments on Hitler were taken way out of context. I mean, if you are a leader and are looking at other people who've led, can you not wonder who Hitler got so many people to follow him? Isn't there some thread of truth where he must have done something to get so many people to follow him.
She f**ked her way to the top. No problem throwing around racial slurs, but if you move in with your fiancé before marriage, that gets you fired?

And she was a hardcore alcoholic. The last time she really injured herself, was bc she got plastered at a party a friend of my parents threw. She stumbled out the front door and messed her hip up.

Hey, I've got someone for you youngsters to compare to. If you watch any amount of NBA basketball, you've probably seen or heard Spurs cranky coach Gregg Popavich's post game comments. About 5 years ago when they were winning titles, it's was semi-amusing and a playful to the media. It's now old and tired. Pop takes every opportunity to tear down media members who ask legitimate basketball questions, now he does this in a very demeaning way, not really ever getting angry, just talking to them like they are children.

Scale back about 20-30 years. Bob Knight has some legendary media rants where he went bonkers to the media. You get a little uncomfortable when Pop goes off, he's like Mother Theresa compared to Knight.

Knight was just an out of control pr1ck. They mentioned how important loyalty was to him, but the second he got pushback for something he did, he threatened to leave and take the New Mexico job. How’s that loyalty to his players? There’s also the prevalent rumor he kicked the IU President out of practice.

You think Marge Schott used her sex appeal to get to the top? Pboy’s a freaking loon.

That does not shock me in the least, can you name any IU president the last 50 years?

Look, I don't disagree with anything you are saying. No one stood up to Knight from the get go, he was highly successful, filled the arena and we're off an running. This is how guys like Paterno and many other of these coaches get so much power.
My other point is Knight's players graduated and rarely got into trouble. Something that is sorely missing in many of today's programs.

College bball is totally difft. There’s no reason for kids to stay 3-4 yrs when they can go to the NBA. Also, there’s far more opportunities to finish your degree on your own time with online courses.

To my knowledge Pop hasn't cursed or physically attacked media members, unlike Bob Knight. What a terrible comparison.

Descartes...only 5% actually every play any significant time in the NBA...you do realize that, don't you. Not every college basketball player goes on to the NBA, even at the big schools.

I don't recall Knight physically attacking a media member, he did put a Puerto Rican security guard in a trash can one time in the Pan Am games back in the late 70's, early 80's.
All I'm saying is as today's media bristle at Pop, just think how they'd be in a Knight presser.

Oh, you're right that was the Indiana Sports Information Director and an NCAA volunteer he did those things to during a press conference.

Davey Johnson, who was fired after going to the NLCS. If people think the Donald Sterling comments were bad, they never heard what Marge Schott was accused of. And let’s be honest, we all know she said those things. It’s unfortunate Charles Schott had a taste for white trash p***y.

He also got into it with the AD at Texas Tech at a salad bar. Someone should’ve punched this guy right in his face. That’s what really irks me is he still hasn’t learned his lesson.

Link for proof?

They dont need to be successful they just need one NBA contract and they will make more money off of that than a degree could ever give them. Even if they flop they still made out better than most graduates with a degree. Heck most graduates dont start out even making much money anyway. Also why cant they take those earnings and go back to school if they so choose? Sounds like making a few mill and going back to school is much better. It is obvious you are terrible in the financial department.



Epic troll job. Hats off to you

She had no business running that team. It’s like an old racist version of the owner in the movie Major League.

Seriously, how can you justify firing your Mgr who took your team to the NLCS bc he lived with his fiancé before they were married? Especially, when you’re a foul mouthed, drunk, racist old b1tch who didn’t even earn your ownership of the team.

That 30 for 30 made me really hate him. Threatening to take the NM job was pretty despicable, tie that on top of the physical and verbal abuse, pure scum.

But she has a ring. She won it all. Isn't that the end all for any owner, manager, coach or player ?
