You know, I've talked a number of times about the concept that the only reason many schools exist is for their athletic factories...
I just never thought it would be so blatantly ADMITTED by the University of Alabama and everyone around it:
OT Cam Robinson and DB Lawrence "Hootie" Jones were arrested in January on stolen gun and drug charges.
Citing a lack of evidence (ROTFL!), Monroe, LA
"I want to emphasize once again that the main reason I'm doing this is that I refuse to ruin the lives of two young men who have spent their adolescence and teenage years, working and sweating, while we were all in the air conditioning."Seriously.
Admitted, open-faced, that the athletes can do whatever the fuck they want.
And even another part of all this is that this is a LOUISIANA DA doing this for the University of Alabama and their football team, on top of the fact that they basically just laid carte blanche for rape, pillage, and plunder by every (meaningful!) football player within the sound of his voice and the pen of his jurisdiction on everything in their path.
It is obvious that, eventually, some aggrieved party is just going to have to go to a stadium and go off.
It is obvious that only those with "legitimate purpose" to the outside society have any rights whatsoever, the rest of us having none.
This (along with that ex-Stanford swimmer - who I intend to blog about to soon when I can wrap my brain around the entire situation!) is another reason we need to abolish the American sports machine as it currently exists.
And it's also obvious that, regardless of Alabama's record on the football field this year, the CFP Committee needs that sentence in front of them when the decisions are made as to who plays whom.
