That’s unacceptable and creates an atmosphere that condones bullying. It seems like there would be witnesses, but who knows if they’ll be forthcoming. If this turns into a he-said she-said and gets dismissed through lack of evidence it will be very, very troubling.

As a long term fan of women’s soccer, I’m saddened to see Mullinix implicated in this sordid mess.

Comment on Women’s soccer hazing injury sparks suit against Clemson coaches by Beau Dure http://www.sportsmyriad.com/2014/09/womens-soccer-hazing-injury-sparks-lawsuit-against-clemson/comment-page-1/#comment-163824 Wed, 10 Sep 2014 14:44:53 +0000 http://www.sportsmyriad.com/?p=5318#comment-163824 I don’t think that’s what Diane is saying. We all want to hear the other side and have a serious talk about hazing. That doesn’t excuse anything alleged here. If even half of it’s true, that should be the end of Radwanski and Mullinix’s coaching careers.

You really see someone miss the point so grossly, it is almost impressive.

I don’t condone anything that injures someone, but I’m torn on what I would define as hazing.

And welcome back :)

Comment on One-handed Monday Myriad, Aug. 11: USA is not Greece by Joshua (my cat) http://www.sportsmyriad.com/2014/08/one-handed-monday-myriad-aug-11-usa-is-not-greece/comment-page-1/#comment-163520 Wed, 20 Aug 2014 06:58:18 +0000 http://www.sportsmyriad.com/?p=5292#comment-163520 “Of course, the better model for Boston is probably Atlanta”

Boston Magazine should go back 12 years earlier to the 1984 Olympics in Los Angeles. Those Games made $$$$$. Like the last previous Summer Olympics held in the United States, the 1932 Olympics also in Los Angeles that also made $$$$ in the depression year of 1932!!!.

Los Angeles was the sole bidder for both of those games. Both times the rest of the world had given up on the Olympics for different reasons. Los Angeles didn’t.

In 1984, Peter Ueberroth pretty much had everything his way. The only new venues built were an OUTDOOR velodrome that has since been demolished for construction of the StubHub Center (Home Field for the Los Angeles Galaxy), and an OUTDOOR Olympic Swimming Pool on the USC Campus that looks more like something for a campus rec center than for the Olympics.

Things got out of control again after 1984, particularly after the Chinese started a bidding war for the 2000 Olympics.

The IOC knows that when worse comes to worst they can always hold the Olympics in an American city where virtually all the required infrastructure is already in place.
