Gray, when you replied I was standing on my boat catching fish, so it has taken this long to find the time to respond.
Well Dave If and When the NCAA vacates any of KU’s conference tournament wins you can proudly stand up and claim K State the undisputed 2013 Basketball Champion. But how are you going to get teh foul taste out of your mouth of having been beaten three times by a bunch of cheaters?
Foul taste? I think not, why would I have a foul taste from being beaten by a team that went to that level to win?
Are you one of those folks that considers any loss to the rocket scientists in the imaginary crow suit, a fate worse than death?
Not hardly as long as they play by the rules everyone else has to then I have no problem with a loss. Sure I may not like it but I will hardly faint over it.
You know there is such a thing as spirited competition and spirited rivalry, but there is also such a thing as irrational behavior, and I’m not sure but I suspect that when you reach the point that your support for your favorite sports team surpasses your support for your favorite deity, “You might be irrational”. I suspect when your hatred of a sports rival so clouds your thinking that you don’t afford your competitors the same honor and respect you afford members of your own religion, “You might be irrational”
They gain respect by being respectful in the winning process. Cheating is NOT a respectful or even honorable process. Or do you think that is how things are to be done now days?
It is typical in sports (especially college football) for fans to replace “Do unto others as you would have them do unto you” , with “Do unto others before they have a chance to do it to you” As a proud, sane (I think, sometimes others disagree with me) and rational individual, I ask myself what would Coach Snyder do? Short Answer: I don’t have a clue. Long answer: I don’t really know but I believe Coach Snyder would say, “lets concern ourselves with our own abilities and controlling our own behavior and not worry about what others do, lets take care of what we can take care of and lets stand on our own abilities.
As for Coach Snyder I would agree that would more than likely that would be his stance. Yet unlike you I think if there are not complaints about the cheating processes of some then will it go unpunished allowing them to continue their cheating ways.
Will you take my Wildcat Card away from me Dave if I simply State that I prefer the Wildcats stand or fall on their own abilities? And if by chance we/they fall, lets not cry and whine and look for revisionists to “fix it” for us.
I prefer the Cats stand alone on top of a class acting group of teams. Class acting requires they play by the rules.
What do you say Dave, Can I still be a Wildcat fan?
Be a Fan of what every team you choose, I really do not care. Yet at least choose on that attempts to play by the rules first and hopefully come out with a win in the process.
In the end I would like to think that ALL of the coaches and teams at K-State would play by the rules and do so with honor and be respectful of the opposing team. If they don’t and are not then the higher ups need to deal the cards out and get that fixed. Seems they have done a darned good job up till now and have made every attempt to maintain integrity in their process.
On another note, as for you members of your own religion statement, if I have a religion then I am the only member. That too is someone’s imagination running amuck. So good luck with that one.
Don’t know how the puctutations will come out maybe this will be clear to understand - - or not. good luck (ha had to fix it anyway)
