    Utah parents complain student athlete 'is not feminine enough' when their own kids get beat. High school system starts investigating the student's background under pretense of transgender issue.

    That is fucked up. And the BYU Coach refusing to attend the meeting about the incident is beyond fucked up. NCAA should suspend all BYU athletics for a full year over this. Every referee that was there should get a lifetime ban too.

    And fuck any argument that that suspending BYU athletics for a year will ďpunish the innocent athletesĒ. Every BYU athlete present clearly heard the N-word being shouted. They should have called a time out and told their coach they refused to play until the problem was resolved. Every level of leadership absolutely failed here. Coaches, Referees, team captain, individual athletes. All failed to speak up. And BYUís official silence and stonewalling is teaching their student body a lesson in life. And itís the wrong lesson.

    Sorry Utah, this makes your state look really bad.

    Yeah, def fukt up.
    I think it makes BYU and the people involved look bad. To make it a Utah problem might be overdoing it.

    Anyone remember the UNC Bball player that accused Briton Johnsen(UofU Bball player) of racial epithets just cuz he got schooled by a white boy? Only to recant later!

    No, not since 1978, when the churchís racist policies threatened their tax exempt status. Totally racism free ever since!

    All religions have some extreme bigotry in their beliefs for sure. Mostly about who is going to be allowed into heaven, whatever that is. There's only one that I'm aware of that singles out "black people from an arid land" as beneath the Believers. That said, I never met a Mormon that I didn't like and they did put on a heck of a production on Hill Cumorah every summer that I went to a dozen times.

    Well, as a non Mormon living in utardia since 1 yr old, I'm not defending their beliefs and I've met dbag Mormons. If a religion is going to discern who gets into heaven though extreme bigotry, isn't that the same thing as believing others are beneath you? Doesn't most christian religions portrayal of JC as a blue eyed Anglo-Saxon muthafucker kinda racist?

    This. Stop playing, put your foot on top of the ball right there on the court and tell the ref and coaches that nobodyís playing until the guy is kicked out - or until the stands are cleared if you canít/wonít identify the perp.

    This needs to be part of the athleteís code for all sports at all levels.

    I get that itís putting the onus on the victim but the athletes are ultimately the ones with the power if they stand together on thisÖ

    Edit: athlete said she didnít want to give people the satisfaction by stopping the game. I get that too, I dunno - still think clearing the crowd if people canít behave is the only way to shut it down. Might lose some $ but would be sending a message that you really care about your athletes.

    That should piss EVERY ONE ON THE PLANET off, no matter what you think.

    Hell, that's the kind of thing that will unite all the other species to vote us off the planet.

    Didnít I scroll past an article recently that reported Oregon ducks team apologizing for their fansí hateful rants?

    Iíll never forget the (one and only) time I attended a jazz game. I was nicely buzzed, went to my seat midway up and within 5 min the horror set in. Mormon families all around me, well lubed with their diet cokes, heckling the refs and other team non stop. It was a relentless display of disrespectful mob energy.

    These people were not ďcussingĒ per se, methinks because of their LDS upbringing, but they found it reasonable to scream racist remarks at the opposition players and called out the referees for any call they made against the home team. I was disgusted and didnít even last until halftime. Iíve never gone back to that arena.

    That's pathetic, I would have left too, I think. Super fans can sometimes be a weird combo of white trash but with enough money to afford season tix.

    Only time I went there for a game was a surprise for my birthday. As we were nearing the stadium I got REAL excited the surprise from the wife was an NBA basketball game, but in the back of my head I'm thinking "but I don't think the Jazz are playing tonight"

    She took me to a f'n Harlem Globetrotters game. And no, this crowd did not heckle the ref or swear at the opposing team, which would have been nice actually.
