even more lurid sexual harassment cases coming to light...involving more Athletic Dept. Personnel...
I sure hope this stuff isn't going on at every school - there sure seems to be a ton of it at Minnesota.

Although no guarantee things won't change - it is looking more and more like there will be NO charges brought against Patrick Kane.
http://www.buffalonews.com/city-regi...s-say-20151031
http://sports.yahoo.com/blogs/nhl-pu...021127698.html

Kane's statement is that the facts speak for themselves...but I fully expect the "accuser" and her latest lawyer to file more suits - as the Geicko commercial says - that's what they do...

well - every case has people who take far differing sides...but this one is one of the most bizarre I have seen since the facts as have been released point strongly towards a lack of evidence against Kane and a whole bunch of shenanigans on the part of the accuser, her family, her lawyer, and even some of her supportive shills in the media who are trying to drum up public sympathy for her and sympathy against Kane.
Sorry - I admit I was a Patrick Kane fan even before all this started but my view of the evidence that has been made known and the facts as they have been made quite clear - kinda discredit the accuser big time.

it would be interesting to see if Kane & his lawyer file suit against the woman and her mother for lies and promoting an elaborate hoax that had smeared Kane publicly.

Default Oklahaoma State head coach Travis Ford gets booted from his son's game

Didn't this happen to Bruce Pearl, too?

After getting kicked out of his son's high school basketball game the next step is spin it as unfair and not warranted

http://www.twincities.com/localnews/...nt-settlements

even more bad news for Minnesota...yet another scandal or two...
A review showed "HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS" OF IMPROPER SPENDING within their Athletic Department - including...
"tens of thousands of dollars spent on alcohol, parties and other luxuries in violation of U policy.." and
".. improper spending on alcohol, expensive hotels and parties during (former AD) Teague’s tenure."
http://www.winonadailynews.com/sport...0dbbbc5f7.html
http://www.startribune.com/universit...ent/360945101/

Then they found that the former AD made some nice deals that got some pretty nice perks right into his pocket - plus over $50,000 in booze bought by department members.
I think when AD's and University admins run their programs into the ground with irresponsible spending, they ought to pay the University back!
http://www.twincities.com/localnews/...dium-use-perks



Texas has a similar scandal with top insiders within Athletics skimming then brokering tickets for profit

I don't think I can turn this thread into a poll, but I will try...
now that 2015 is done- let's vote on the Sports IDI0T of the Year....you can include anyone already mentioned in this thread or find someone new...

But it has to be someone in sports - no listing politicians, or notable public figures who pretend to be one race or sex while they are actually another, and no listing of stupid crooks unless they are sports figures...

Here's a summary of the notables from this thread plus a few others thrown in...

-Aldon Smith - 49ers, got arrested for DUI/Hit & Run on 1st day of training camp.

-Norwood Teague - Univ. of Minnesota AD who had everything going for him then threw it all away by trying to use his power & position to get a little nookie on the side. Maybe the guy who hired this bozo should also be included since teague was found to have done the exact same thing where he worked before.

-Sheldon Richardson - NY Jets, arrested going 143mph on drugs & had a kid in his car.

-Justin Moss, MAC Player of the Year arrested for stealing from other students' dorm rooms.

-IKEMEFUNA ENEMKPALI - another NY Jets player punched his own QB and put him on the disabled list

-Darius Paul - now we're getting close to home, Paul booted for his umpteenth violation with drugs & booze.

-BU's Warren Jones was nominated as well for his poor judgement that led to dismissal.

-Tom Brady & Roger Goodell for the laughable Deflate-gate mess.

-Winona State head coach forced out for making drunken sexual advanced towards one of his players.

-USC FB Coach Steve Sarkisian - multiple efforts to impersonate Foster Brooks.

-Chris Carter for his advice to NFL rookies on having a posse fall guy.

-Ahmad Brooks - but then this kind of drunken advances are getting pretty common.

-Minnesota underling Mike Ellis caught doing the same thing as Teague.

-Oklahoma State's Travis Ford kicked out of his kid's high school game for berating refs from the stands.

...now a few more I threw in...

-There was Manny Pacquiao's decision to fight while injured and not bother to tell anyone - kind of a little dishonest considering a few hundred million bucks were being wagered.

-Ronda Rousey (and her entourage) spent the entire year hyping & boasting how unbeatable she was then she went down pretty easy in Round 2 in November. I guess there are people who actually consider this stuff "sports" so I included it - but any time a heavy favorite like Rousey or Pacquiao go down easy- it's gotta raise real suspicions just who might have been making the really big bucks on the betting? But then, like I said, if anyone really thinks this qualifies as real "sports" - then maybe I should include pro wrestlers like Rowdy Roddy Piper & all the other pro wrestlers who killed themselves with drugs & abuse.
And just about any year that he attempts a comeback and flops - we could re-list Keith Olbermann, but I won't.

-the list of people caught cheating in college basketball this year includes Larry Brown, Jim Boeheim, and a few others, but hey- this is everyday news any more.

-but this is the one I would vote for....
the family- specifically the mother - of the woman making accusations towards Patrick Kane - pulls the most bone-headed, stupid, and dishonest ruse about her daughter's rape claims, then blames it all on the investigators & prosecutors, dupes her really simple-minded and gullible lawyer to get in on it and generates the most ridiculous circus of press conferences I can ever recall seeing.
Even if there were any believable shred of evidence to support the publicity-seeking daughter's claims against Kane, then this stupid family & lawyer just made complete buffoons of themselves and proved to the world what extent they'd go to just to make a circus out of the evidence for whatever gain they might be able to achieve.
Thankfully the prosecutor dropped the whole thing.
...as a corollary I would also list all the stupid media and hateful bigots who demanded Kane be kicked out of the NHL & suspended based only on their pre-conceived ideas that if the accuser said it, then it must be true.

I would nominate the 3 stupid baseball writers who didn't vote for Ken Griffey Jr. for the Hall of Fame. Would love to see their explanation.

Griffey, Jr. was named on 437 of 440 ballots, for a 99.3%, the highest percentage in the history of Hall of Fame voting.
http://www.seattletimes.com/sports/m...voting-record/

No past great ever got 100%. 23 people failed to vote for Willie Mays, and 20 people didn't vote for Ted Williams!

you can see from Da Coach's graphic that obviously petty jealousy & bias rules in these votes...

Press writers who hold a grudge because Ted Williams didn't give them an interview then take it out by voting against him.

Seriously - look at that - Ted Williams - arguably and in some people's eyes, the best player of all time - still didn't get twenty guys' votes!!!

23 writers dissed on Willie Mays!!! And about a dozen dissed on Babe Ruth!!!

READ THIS COLUMN ABOUT how many of the very top players in history still faced resistance from certain voters.
http://www.news-press.com/story/spor...vote/78208774/


Just goes to show you that some writers place the extra special requirement of "you gotta kiss my *** before I will give you my vote"

you decide if this defines "idi-ot"..
but Maria Sharapova - currently earning $30 million per year for tennis winnings and endorsements...the HIGHEST earning female athlete in the world!!!


...has just accepted a 2-year suspension due to testing positive for a banned substance.

The drug in question is meldonium...not widely known as a "performance enhancing drug"...
It was and is used to treat heart patients - although is not used commonly - as it opens blood vessels and improves heart performance and and improves stamina in heart muscle and possibly all muscles.

It was never on the list of banned drugs until Jan. 1, 2016 but it is now because a perfectly healthy athlete - one without heart disease - would only be taking it for ONE PURPOSE, which would be to hopefully improve stamina and athletic endurance and thus gain an advantage over someone who is not taking it.

I guess also joining the list of really stupid people in sports...
are the jerk/peeping Tom who videotaped Erin Andrews in a motel, plus the motel staff & administration who negligently revealed to this crook where she was staying then allowed the stalker to request the room next to hers to video her.

They both have to come up with about $27 million bucks as punishment for their acts.

Sadly for Ms. Andrews, with the legal appeals and the moron's likelihood of just filing bankruptcy - she might never see much of that settlement, but she has the satisfaction of nailing them in court.

as expected and as predicted long ago...
not only were no charges ever brought, and the accuser totally discredited...
now the NHL - to satisfy the media activism - have fully investigated and found zero credibility in those accusations and the accuser herself.

Here's the LINK

I thought this story belonged in this "Sports ldiot" thread-
SEMO freshman reserve Tony Anderson to declare for NBA draft
http://espn.go.com/mens-college-bask...lare-nba-draft

SEMO freshman Tony Anderson, who played on a 5-24 team and averaged 5.0 ppg and 2.1 rpg quit the team, dropped out of school, and reportedly will hire an agent and declare for the 2016 NBA Draft. ESPN contacted several NBA executives, none of whom had even heard of Tony Anderson.

I think the more appropriate headline would be...
"How can I come up with a statement that will hide the fact that I just flunked out of SEMO and am basically all done with my college career"

there's a discussion going on the Illini board that sources say junior Malcolm Hill is exploring options to declare for the draft.

Add to the list the ones who are fighting outside the Civic Center, and in the area. Screwing up one of the few things Peoria has going for it.
