    On the subject......


    Not exactly breaking news to most of us, but an interesting read.

    Knight popped the kid in the chin. Hard. He could have just said "look at me." He popped him instead.

    Once, just once, I'd like to see a player pop Knight back. Slug him. Hard.

    Wow. That's the shortest post Alma's ever written. He must be really riled up.

    Oh, I think Knight's one of the great villains of modern sports. A bully, a misogynist, a cretin, a crybaby, an oaf. I especially appreciated the TV analysis yesterday: This player knew what he was getting into when he signed with Knight. That's like saying a girl in short dress should expect men to sexually assault her.

    Look at Knight's track record of abuse. He's a classic abuser: He doesn't bully the people he could care less about, or the people who'd shove it right back in his face - he bullies people close to him. His son. His secretary. Some of his harding-working, best-behaved players. And now this kid, apparently one of Knight's favorites. Thing is - Knight wouldn't pop every player on that team. He pops the guy he knows will suffer it. He's calculated. He knows exactly what's doing, and is unapologetic about it.

    Oh, I agree. 100 percent.

    And he only seems to bestow his friendship and favors on toadies.
