Good luck to her because she is going to need it. I don't see any way she can win this. The Mizzou AD has doubled down and refuses to retract the statement and I don't blame him. If you have ever been there for a game then you know how it is. All I am going to say is she better hope they don't allow evidence from other sporting events. There all hot and bothered because nobody cared about their little basketball program or coach. They cried for weeks because they think if it were one of the programs that are actually successful in a sport that matters then the Commish would have punished the AD. Pretty sure the AD has the right to his beliefs and his belief is that Staley nurtured that environment. Plus there is not doubt in my mind that what the Mizzou players and AD said happened. What do you expect from a school like that though. Whats even more funny is the fan base doesn't even see it. You tell them there fan base was throwing trash and yelling racial slurs their reaction is, "so".
We live in an era where you can attempt to sue someone, or ruin someone's reputation, because of a comment made. W T F happened to freedom of speech? Where I come from if a man disrespects you - you whip his ### or he whips yours.
If someone disrespects you through speech and you whip his ### then his speech wasn't free, it cost him an ### whippin'.
You can say whatever the #### you want to, but some things may have consequences, especially when they're in a privately owned company and/or illegal (which I don't think the coot coach has a leg to stand on here).
1. Mizzou AD said he "thinks" dawn staley contributed to the atmosphere. The work "thinks' lets him off the hook for slander. Am I right attorneys?
2. SEC commish say Coots must uphold safe environment for visiting teams playing there. What the heck was that we say at W-B in november when we played there? Fans throwing bottles and shooting birds. You call that a safe environment?
It will be very hard for her to prove that the usuc fan base isn't like/what the Mizzoo coach said they were bc, all he has to do is bring the Clemson game against them at their place to prove that fan base is scum with a big write up on how their fans were acting in that game also!!! Case closed!!!
