How about something on the collapse of a once proud team-The Utah Jazz?
@MiPThe Ute women's team put up a gutsy performance against one of
the top squads in the nation in front of a lot of enthusiastic fans. What does
Rock do, makes fun of it and runs it down with his petty remarks.Perhaps he's just a little bitter about the Utes knocking BYU out of the NCAA
tourney by beating them in the MWC title game.Regardless, it's
pretty darn disappointing to see him take out his frustrations on a group of
student athletes who have every reason to be proud of their accomplishments.
Mr. Rock, I realize "Rock On" is sound bite stuff, but
2,000 fans may actually be pretty decent when you consider: 1) The game was
televised and 2) It was played during several of the men's games, including BYU
vs Gonzaga. I think the point was the fans who were there were devoted and it
game the Utes more incentive. It showed during the game, which I watched, from
the comfort of my home a thousand miles from SLC.
boYlen got fired?Dang it.
