If the writer of the article does not give us more background to try to understand the situation, and simply presents it with the appearance that he seems to think WE know what's-what, then WHY should we give a soft, dark sh*t about this kid?

Was this article written in a text message while the author was driving down 95? Dude, check your grammar once in a while.
I agree with Sol. This whole time we've been presented with a lot of speculation. Where are the details? Is it really true that Han simply had to apologize?
This article is "sad and stupid".

Regardless of who's at fault here, a good Athletic Director might have been able to intervene and negotiate some peace between a coach and star player. This is not a unique college sports problem here with immature athletes. This non-positive resolution will make a weak Stag recruiting program even weaker. Fairfield was going nowhere in the MAAC tournament in Albany this March anyway. They will follow their long established history of not being able to win big games (they couldn't even win this tourney in Bridgeport), star or no star player. Their single shining moment of a strong opening round loss to No. Carolina in the NCAAA tourney several years ago will not be repeated again soon, if ever.

I would love to know what the assistant coach said to Han after the loss to Manhatten. Bet it was not very nice.

well there, "big bill", i guess if he hurt a 21, or 22 -year old's fragile feelin's, it's OK that the player YELLED at the coach in public!.....just what this player needs now, more adult apologists for poor behavior!......God bless!

Hortence,i would still like to hear what the coach said, i played four years of college ball, and coachs can be pretty insensitive especially after a tough loss. If the coach had any sence he would hold any criticism until emotions cooled down. I think the writer should make an effort to find out the whole story,so each of us can make an informed judgement.

Brand-new assistant coach Brian Blaney spent the last 4 years under Loyola Maryland's Jimmy Pastos, who is a world-class a$$hole. If you've ever seen Pastos in action you know what I mean. Perhaps he inherited some of Pastos' people skills.
This team has had to deal with an ever-rotating coaching staff that would negatively effect any player, never mind a volatile one. Fairfield Athletics has once again demonstrated a lack of sophistication and discipline that is required to break out of mediocrity. As a matter of fact, a prime example of this is the inability of the Athletic Director to keep his personal feelings about Han to himself. He was heard referring to Han in a derogatory manner at a recent game to a group of people, some of whom he didn't even know. That's mature leadership right there.

i've played a bit myself and coaches can be a WHOLE lot more than just "pretty" insensitive!!!.....and if this kid is supposed to be a "senior leader", he's gunna take the criticism FOR THE GOOD OF THE TEAM!!!....most GREAT coaches will ride their BEST players...i've found only weak coaches "ride" their "scrubs".....players should know that if the coach will "get on" the star, they better give their best efforts....if this senior wasn't tough enough to handle it, well, his legacy will speak for itself as the kid who quit his seniro year!....God bless!

You are right about one thing Hortence,I did not give rats A-- what my coach said or did before, during or after the game. I averaged over 21pts. and 10rebs. per game and I knew that "come hell or high water" I was playing nearly the entire game, every game. My last post until the writer updates the story.

good for you!....i was a jv scrub (before title ix) and LOVED every minute of being on the team....had a coach who was toughest on the top players and you can bet me and my fellow scrubs gave our best efforts to avoid his wrath....my point is, even IF the top players had a problem with the coach, they would have taken care of the issue in the OFFICE, man-to-man!......all of this prima-donna stuff is really taking away from the whole notion of "team" and it's, to say the least, very sad!.....God bless!
