Thread: and you thought the only goons were in hockey ...

    and you thought the only goons were in hockey ...

    In Temple's 63-56 loss Tuesday to Saint Joseph's, Chaney sent in a goon -- his word, goon -- to send a message. That message went all the way to a hospital in Philadelphia, where Saint Joseph's forward John Bryant was diagnosed Thursday with a broken arm.

    Chaney sent a player into the game for the express purpose of roughing up Saint Joseph's, and the result was the probable end of John Bryant's career.

    I have to wonder what John Chaney could possibly have been thinking.

    Now that is just not right. No matter how bad you wanted to win.

    ok, goons in hockey are one thing....basketball did not develop with that kind of play in mind. If they did, there would be a penalty box. To me, this is as bad as "head-hunters" in baseball. The coach, school and player should be penalized, financially and from playing/participation accordingly.
    Dude, I'm cheesing so hard right now.

    Coach Cheney has had a number of run ins of late. He is losing it, I think.

    Here is a person who should not only be fired, but banned for life from basketball at any level, and kicked out of the hall of fame. There needs to be a clear message that there is a correct way to play sports, and that anything else will not be tolerated. Colleges that condone this sort of behaviour (you could include Colorado and others) should not be allowed to participate. I imagine a five-year prohibition from playing any regular season games or boul/tournament would very quickly get schools to teach acceptable standards of sportspersonship.

    My bad... There are animals that participate in sports as well (although they are usually exploited for human enjoyment) and my language fails to properly recognize them. my apologies to all fellow life-beings. I will try not to slip up in the future.
