Just another article about McGill University canceling the remainder of their football season but check out some of these quotes from the players and coaches…
Mr. McMann, the head coach, acknowledged yesterday that his players’ hazing went too far, but he was disappointed with the university’s punishment.
“I feel very upset for the players,” he said when reached at his office. “I understand where the university is coming from. They need to make a strong statement. But I don’t like it. I think the players have been punished enough.”
Punished enough? Have the players had their asses probed with broomsticks? Well, actually they have…
Team quarterback Matt Connell also expressed anger over the findings, saying the hazing ritual dates back years, and all the rookies except the complainant went along with it.
“It happened to me. It’s a quick part of initiation,” he said, scoffing at the revelations of nudity.
“It’s football. You’re naked together 24-7 in the locker room,” Mr. Connell said. “Everyone’s naked together all day.”
Um….yeah. I don’t think I’ve ever read anything that sounded gayer. Not that there’s anything wrong with that. This guy sounds like he’s so far in the closet he’s finding Christmas presents. Anyway, the “It happened to me” defense is so wrong. That’s like saying “Well I was raped so it’s ok for me to be a rapist”.
And all over a game that children play.
