Source: Players support Sampson

ANYone that thinks - that Sampson is being railroaded - that Knight discredited the University on the level of this current cheat - that is even a molecule of a "race" issue - that Knight made the program or the state a laughingstock.... is an idiot. What nest- compare the university and the NCAA to the Nazis?? That is also what lame-o's do when they are trying to defend a wrongdoer. The PR cop thought he would make a name for he-self and toss the famous American around- bad call. Pro athletes have for some time been arrested, thrown bats and racks onto the field, went into the stands after fans, and choked their coaches. It does not even take a 5th grader to know that throwing a chair is the same. Childish? Boorish? Hell, stupid choice? Yes. Worst than anyone alluded to in the previous list? No way in Hell. Knight can be and still is a bully. Yet he won WITHOUT cheating, and graduated his players. I bet people like you think Tarkanien was railroaded too, huh? Sampson cheated.. he was on notice before he got here, and still did it again. He needs to go.  (Feb 22, 2008 | post #517)

The Indianapolis Star

No title

How so? I have had my vehicles break down and had no way to get to work....FIVE times in my life. I have had my home in danger of being repossessed, way before the current times. I have had the company that I worked for simply close without warning- twice. AND.... I have NEVER EVER decided to sell drugs, use drugs, or be associated with drugs as a solution. Of COURSE it is sad that these little ones and their moms are gone. But instead of defending the moms, stop and think about the aspect that they may have in fact put themselves in harms way by downplaying the hazards of a drug filled environment. You simply cannot defend their choices, or their lifestyle and say that it was not at least to a degree a self imposed danger. Stop defending drug users and sellers, it IS wrong, and ultimately you have to pay a price for the choice. Like it or not, for every choice there is a consequence, and doing crime, of any kind or severity, is wrong. I hope the murderers burn in hell for their actions.  (Jan 21, 2008 | post #187)

Man dies, 1 hurt in shooting at Westside gambling site

Unless you are seeing that the unemplyment rate is zero- there are jobs out there. Some of them do not pay as much as burglary, illegal gambling, or selling drugs, and you DO have to work, but there are jobs out there  (Nov 16, 2007 | post #97)

Police: Feud results in teen's death

You coin a term that really, really stands out to me- "cultural cancer." I do not think that I have heard that before, and I think there is some potential power in that phrase, I would challenge all who would turn around this inSANE viloence and senseless mayhem to get behind this phrase, and use it as a tool. When will this stop, CAN it be stopped with all of the "Rules" of silence and retribution?  (Sep 13, 2007 | post #101)

83 posts, when the significance is that we are commenting on what the Star determined to be a top of the page main story, and it contains little to no information, and smacks of such amateur "writing " that it is comical to have even been published as is. All too often, this "news source" publishes pathetically amateur and incomplete articles- articles that would get a "D" in Journalism 101. If in fact you take umbrage with the selection of the most pressing news of the day or the moment, then you need to discuss that with the Star. We did not "paste up" the page dude.  (Aug 25, 2007 | post #85)

I reread you comments, and see that I did miss where you were coming from. For that part, please accept my "retraction, " and note that I am not burying it on page 42. I do agree with the multiple comments, that unless all of the facts were available, and in SPITE of deadline and pressure, that this one should have stayed in the "Draft" folder.  (Aug 25, 2007 | post #80)

Don't agree that this piece of fluff "needed" to be posted as it was written. This was not an urgent story of major import Further, this "story" does not look like the type of material that came in over the wires. The editor that made the decision to post this comes across as being more in line to edit the local sewing newsletter than a paper of this magnitude. The writer left out ALL of the pertinent facts of a true story, and people getting paid to do this work should not "write" material of such poor quality.  (Aug 25, 2007 | post #62)

A first year high school journalism student would put together a better story, with ALL of the facts than this piece of crap. Hello professional journalist- "Five W's and one H" still applies. If you do not have the facts, or cannot put together a professional piece, LEAVE IT OUT AND QUIT WASTING TIME AND SPACE. The editor that allowed this story to post, and the "writer" that put it together should get written up.  (Aug 25, 2007 | post #12)

Franchitti uninjured in wild 7-car crash

gosh, in the excitement of thinking of the "athletes " hitting the little white ball, I misspelled "golf." Sorry about that. Still not going to watch single file F-1 though. Too boring. Don't like it. I turn the channel. Second hint of the night Gome. By the way, Wally called, wants you back at the station right away.  (Aug 5, 2007 | post #41)

Goll-OLL-lee Gome. Ah my friend, the question looms so greatly, if you do NOT like this series, the cars, the drivers, etc, why then do you "torture " yourself and watch??? I happen to know that there was a FASCINATING gold tournament on at the same time. Talk about edge of your seat excitement there boy! Those of us who grew up in Indy and remain loyal fans of the series (even though a LOT of the changes over the years have NOT been positive) care about you, and would so rather that you did not get yourself all in a lather by watching "our" series. I for one cannot stand to watch the single file "racing" of Ecclestone's series for example.... and I don't. Mayhaps your sports viewing would be better spent on candle pin bowling or something.  (Aug 5, 2007 | post #40)

Illegal doesn't make them criminals

No, actually he bought passage, came here legally from England, and went stem to stern through the system to be LEGAL. He did not demand separate ballots, schools, or programs. He and his friends were not a member or a violent street gang, and to date no one in my lineage has committed a serious crime. You lose  (Jul 24, 2007 | post #360)
