If Coach K can use vile language, why not basketball fans?
What’s this big uproar from Duke University fans who are stumbling over each other to defend Mike Krzyzewski’s foul language? Next time you’re at a college basketball game, try shouting the same language that Coach K uses and see what happens. Chances are a gang of burly security guards will escort you from the arena. Why? You’re offending the people around you.
So I guess it’s OK for a coach to offend the fans, including families, sitting near him, but it’s not acceptable for the rest of us. Can’t anyone see the hypocrisy in that? Who says coaches should get a free pass?
I used to attend Denver Nuggets games when Doug Moe was their coach. You never heard such a blast of cursing in your life. The difference between Moe and Coach K is that Moe was coaching professionals, not college kids. Another thing, Moe never took himself seriously and he realized that part of his job was to talk to the press. Thus, he was always popular with reporters. Bobby Knight was another story. I attended a press conference he gave at an NCAA regional tournament in Denver. He was the nastiest, rudest and most insulting bastard I ever came across. Nobody provoked him. The guy is just a weirdo, a bully and a jerk.
