I always find your comments insightful and helpful to make sense of full beauty and cultural impact of sports in America. But I was disappointed by your comments to the Gas Man in Seattle about the Virginia Tech game closing down the university. I felt similarly with your defense of ESPNs willingness to use a twenty four hour weekday and class day for celebrating the opening of college basketball.
As a professor and faculty athletic representative who fights on the front line to try and keep some academic integrity in intercollegiate sports, it's important to realize how vulnerable the basketball and football players are academically--you of all folks should know this given what you have written. The whole ESPN approach simply ignores academic impacts on these most vulnerable kids and sends all the wrong messages.
And at V-Tech there were over 4,000 students who pay tuition and go to class in late afternoon and evening who actually expected to be able to attend class and learn. It is not the same as a declared celebration for a great victory, it is symbolically a clear message that the life of the community and education of kids take a back set to making money and getting explosure.

Tiger owes his fans NOTHING. We are very happy that he is very fine. We hope that he will quickly be able to put this behind him and resume his remarkable journey of excellence. Those who think Tiger owes them anything are his distractors,haters and enemies who would be very happy to see Tiger fail.

He owes anyone or the media nothing! Each and everyone who is not in public office deserve his or her PRIVATE life.

We know that stories about Tiger sells newspapers and articles.

Mr. Woods doesn't owe anyone anything. It's enogh to surmise that he was upset enogh about something that he lost control of his car. It's a private matter - and should remain private.
