Good morning, Duck fans. The NCAA investigation is over and we were severely punished for our misdeeds.
Now it’s time to take the high road, as befits the prestigious institution of higher education that we support.
The reaction of Duck fans to the news was predictably understated.
But surprisingly football fans around the Northwest were not as pleased that the rules of fair play and participation in intercollegiate athletics were so affirmed by the honorable guardians of the game known as the NCAA. To my dismay some of the more ardent fans of the Beavers and Huskies took the news…rather hard.
Purely in the interest of telling the whole story, journalistically after all, I have monitored what some of the message boards and forums for the Beavers and Huskies have had to say about the outcome of the investigation. I do this with a sense of sadness, really. I take no joy in their grief.
One Beaver fan compared the University of Oregon to…
Another Beaver fan compared the outcome of the NCAA investigation to Sandy Hook.
One Husky fan on Dawgman.com said that this was just proof that the bad guys win. He’s wrong. THIS is proof that the bad guys win.
There you have the highlights, so far, of what is being said in the crazier parts of the greater Northwest. I was glad to provide this peek into the minds of the twisted and bizarre. The only bad thing was having to go to websites other than fishduck.com. Why would anyone want to do that?
Have a great 4th of July.
