Interesting editorial in today's S-R.

Quote:

"In The Spokesman-Review’s Sports section on Monday, the day the Stanford-Gonzaga game dominated the coverage, at least three lesser stories touched on some of the negative sideshows that have become so common in big-time sports – a criminal trial, a recruiting violation, a labor dispute. And that was a slow day for athletic dysfunction.

You rarely read about such tawdry stuff involving women’s sports. We’re not sure about other teams elsewhere, but none of the GU women ran into trouble over marijuana-possession charges this season"

a waste of space. but then that's what the s-r editorial page usually does. Can anyone tell I loathe articles that imply one is better because someone else is worse ? Or got caught ? Or didn't get caught ? Lazy writing. Lazy thinking. Irrelevant.

Let me guess...the writer of that editorial earned his stripes at The Bulletin.

Sorry...couldn't resist after that BYU column that was pulled.
