My old college newspaper, The Daily Reveille at Louisiana State, has just captured first-place in the ongoing race for the most ironic comment-box posting ever.
IT COMES amid the feedback to lsureveille.com's story on the Tigers' crushing 31-30, last-minute loss to Arkansas on Friday:
Les needs to issue IQ tests before he signs players to a scholarship. The moronic penalties from stupid, undisciplined players is what cost LSU this game. LSU players have made dumb choices all year. If they can't play under control maybe we need a coaching change. I've backed Miles ever since he came to LSU, but consoling a player who makes a personal foul when the next down would have been 4th from deep in their territory shows me there are no consequences for their actions. Players don't have respect for Miles any longer and fans are quickly losing their respect for players who can't control their emotions.AN LSU FAN left that comment. An. LSU. Fan. Left. That. Comment.
LSU fans "are quickly losing their respect for players who can't control their emotions." I cannot adequately express to you how rich that is.
Oh, Lordy. That is so rich that one bite of that baloney sandwich would give an anorexic a real lard-ass problem.
I wonder how Tiger fans might express that disappointment and lack of respect? By tumping over the team bus?
Lord God Almighty!
Of course, at this writing, the lead comment on that Reveille story goes like this:
This comes down to the pure moral difference between white and black people. These blacks on the football team have no discipline and no moral compass. They're a bunch of ghetto thugs who don't know how to behave. I'd rather have an LSU team with great character that loses games with integrity than even having this gang of thugs winning a title.SOMEWHERE IN LOUISIANA, it's always 1959.
Or, as my wife said after I told her about that comment, "I'm never going down there again." Frankly, I'm half inclined to follow her lead.
