    Never would have happened if they'd gone with ball men.

    One of my colleagues is a Georgetown grad. He is often amazed at my fanatical disdain for Michigan, State Penn, and Wisconsin and thinks I go too far. Yesterday he walked into my office and said: "Did you hear Boeheim show his true colors by blaming the victims of childhood sexual molestation?" :lol:

    Bernie Fine's inquiry to take weeks

    Could somebody tell me again why we allow campus 'police' to have any authority at all?

    Interesting tape of his wife discussing the alleged abuse with the ballboy who was abused. As interesting a question is why ESPN sat on this tape doing nothing since 2003. ESPN must have been too busy suing schools for tattoo related matters to be concerned with child sex abuse.

    Bernie Fine's wife had abuse concerns

    Wonder how much Boeheim regrets his strong comments supporting Fine and calling the accuser a liar a few days ago?

    An interesting tidbit that came out is that the kid (Davis) lived with Fine and his wife for a while, and the wife seemingly knew that her husband was attracted to guys, and at least in 2002 (when the tape was made) knew that Fine had abused Davis when he was a kid.

    And Davis also says that he slept with Mrs. Fine when he was 18, and then told the husband about it a few years after that, and Fine didn't get very pissed off at all. The wife's comments make it sound like he wasn't sexually interested in her for a long time, at one point she says that for her husband, "it's all about the dick".

    But why did Davis let ESPN hear the tape in 2003, and then sit on it for 8 years?

    A third accuser came forth (the second was a step-brother of Davis), and that allowed the 7-hour search of Fine's house 2 days ago. The 2 step-brothers couldn't cause charges to be files due to the statute of limitations having expired in NY state.

    One point that will come up - Davis taped that phone conversation in 2002, when he was in Utah and Mrs. Fine was in New York. Both of those states had laws at that time that allowed somebody to tape a conversation without letting the other person know about it, so the taping was legal. Whether it will ever be admissible is another story.

    In case you're wondering, Laurie Fine:

  10. Thank you, sir, I was wondering. The "all about the dick" comment is pretty fucking disturbing.

    Since Boeheim gave his unconditional support to Fine and questioned the victims' motives, the question is begged as to whether he should be shown the exit if Fine is convicted. This case isn't even close to being analogous with the cover up at Penn State, but Boeheim's premature words were beyond stupid. It's going to be tough for him to distance himself from this thing.

    he also said if something else comes out, he has the right to re-evaluate. as long as he didn't know, he's fine.

    I would agree if his comments had not been accusator I think he hung himself unnecessarily.

    Now I can see why he didn't touch that for a while.
