This should be a private matter between Coach Summitt,Tyler,and her soon to be ex-husband. I imagine she feels like she lives in a fish bowl as it is. Let her have the privacy that is given to any other person.

I think Summitts have a right to privacy. Hopefully there will not be a frenzy into the details of their marriage.

I agree. Life under public scrutiny would suck sometimes.

When you are a "public" personality, your rights to privacy are down the tube. All's fair in news-mongering these days....no respect, no dignity, no character!!

Terrorist Media Hounds will drive her out of this area.

It would be so nice if they could have privacy in this matter. She had to dread filing this, not because of the divorce, but because of the intense media scrutiny.

My heart goes out to her and her family as they try to get through this.

Who cares? This is not news worthy. People get divorces every day. Maybe if she had spent as much time on her marriage as she did the basketball court this would not be happening. Our country is at war, innocent babies are being aborted daily, and this is what WBIR reports. Sad, very sad. There are so many other stories that could be reported and this is what they report.

Seems like people are still staying together for the sake of the kids (if that is indeed the case). Hate that for them, but you know he is going to get a BOATLOAD of $$.

If he is a member of the Summit family in Sevier Co. I am thinking of, he doesn't need any of her money.

You people are soooo uninformed it's just beyond the point of saddness.

"He's going to get a boatload of money"?????? Well, he is a banker. A better way to put it would be a bank teller just hit the bigtime !

You don't need to be a moderator of a populaar message board to know this is old news...way old.

Everyone is so quick to judge...only they know what's really going on. I say leave em alone! Jeez! Give these people some privacy and RESPECT. Im sure any marriage where one is a "celebrity" is gonna have it's struggles. Shame on WBIR for fanning the flames! Focus on real news you morons!

BLESS my tired old heart the 40w bulb just came on. Charter is pulling my long leg...LOL

Now that I "get it" it is easier to read his
stuff...but also now that I get it I kinda hate to admit he pulled this off for so long!

There is a charter vol at sportsparlorsouth.com but like most of the moderators over there he isn't very sharp.

As for not being sharp..that would be me when it comes to this bird.

Yea and you are staying in!! you are an idiot. Why don't you post a picture so we can deside weather you look like the butt of a dog or the butt of a horse. It is none of your business anyways. Any woman who is in sports in considerd to be of alternative sexual orintation. Leave them alone...Pat was more of a sucess at birth than you will be in your life time. And no, I am not a "Dike" either. just to save you the action of typing that comment in reply, I will help you out on that one bud!

Charter is right, very old news. I have known Pat all my life. I will not say why they are divorsing because they do deserve their privacy. I will say one thing and get this "straight", Pat is not gay. She is not comming out. Pat was not looking to divorse and did not what this to happen. Please stop the rumors about the gay thing because this hurts her, her family and friends. As for the banker, I hopes he gets nothing. He is the one at fualt here.
