Just read the SHU Rivals Board where a poster had his post deleted for saying something thought to be racist and discriminatory. I read the post before it was deleted and was shocked to say the least! It's one thing for a guy like me to use the word thug, which many have said was wrong and I stopped using it. It's another thing to say a team needs a particular color player to be good insinuating that type of player brings more intelligence and knowledge.
I applaud the SHU Board Administrator who removed the post, regardless of what the intent was. Though it might not have been meant the way it was written, it was wrong just as me using the word Thugged was wrong despite coaches all over America using that terminology to describe a player outplaying another player on the opposing team.
lastly I am stunned that some guys including one I REALLY RESPECT, who had a real problem with me using the word Thug, thought the post should stay. Good for you Tom, keep up the great work!!! Please read next blog on games involving SHU and RU last night
