    Why would young adults with scholarships who love playing basketball, who are in subordinate positions and who have responsibilities, families, egos and other issues to deal with accept abuse from an authority figure while people like you would blame them for the abuse they received and others would call them "wusses" for protesting stay in such a situation? Well, I don't ****ing know. Sounds completely unbelievable.

    Actually, you have abandoned what you said to wiggen because you refuse to answer for it. You criticized his position on the assumption that he hasn't played sports even though professional athletes and coaches hold the same position. Do you concede that that will illogical or will you choose cowardice and deflect again?

    You appear a bit dense. If athletes felt abused, do you believe they would be too scared to resist? They hold the real power, not the coach, if this were truly an abusive situation...

    Deflection again. You criticized wiggen's position on the assumption that he didn't play any sports, but professional athletes and coaches hold the same position as wiggen? Do you concede that your original criticism of wiggen was illogical?
