Zoobies 42; Rebels 35 -- Too Funny

And a key WSU athlete gets suddenly and cavalierly suspended

Too funny. the formerly #8 nationally ranked Zoobies (the Cougars) barely get by the seventh-place team in the Mountain West conference, (the UNLV Rebels) by a narrow 7-point margin this afternoon. After this game, it's doubtful that BYU will emerge this week within the U.S. top twenty polls.

Our Utah Utes, who are in the midst of a bye-week, are obviously eating their pizza, and laughing their ass off about this.

Our beloved Weber State kicks off this afternoon against Northern Arizona @ 4:00 p.m., BTW.

It'll be interesting to see what happens with our Wildcats, now that the killjoy cops in Davis County have landed one of our key WSU players on suspension.

Couldn't these Davis County law enforcement people have waited a couple of weeks before serving these "questionable" warrants, we ask?

We're also wondering about this: Howcome a college athlete who now stands merely accused of various crimes finds himself suspended at this juncture?

He hasn't yet been convicted of anything at all.

Is it fair to subject someone who is merely accused, to suffer a possible career-ending suspension?

It doesn't seem fair to us at all.

Where is the due process in this?

Are you effing kidding me? He stole from his employer and seriously injured somebody, but lets let him play? You're an idiot.

Ahem, disenchanted...

He's merely alleged to have "stolen from his employer and injured somebody."

He hasn't been convicted; and he shouldn't suffer negative consequences until he has.

Innocent until proven guilty seems to be a tough concept to grasp for some folks in MattGodfreyWorld.

[sigh]

Rudi:

Failure to appear for a court date, however, is not a matter of "alleged." He seems to have just tried to ignore the several felony warrants out for him and he did skip court dates. Courts tend, with some justice, to take a dim view of that.

Oh really? Did the newspaper tell you the defendant was ever properly served with a summons, or notice to appear? Is it a "given" that the defendant even knew he had a court date? It's already been reported, btw, that Davis County authorities couldn't locate the defendant.

Seems to me that too many people here are willing to act as judge and jury, in a matter where the defendant hasn't even been yet arraigned.

Sheesh.

I said it before and I will repeat it here - once again:

About a week or so after God created the world, and all in it, she realized she had made man just a little too smart. So to rectify this error she evented football as a countermeasure in order to dumb down men. It certainly seemed to work! Has any one ever seen any one more stupid than a rabid football fan?
