In which manner would that be? Do they have some divine right to a forum in which nothing they deem distasteful appears? Or is it that nobody can be mean to them and sugest that they are related to the coach? Is it that they have some right not to be accused of being a great fan of Steve Lappas if they refuse to condemn him?Hyperbole Defender wrote:What if it isn't unreasonable?

Since I'm of the opinion that a suit stuffed with straw would have coached this team betterr, I would have loved to have had the whole season in which to never discuss the coach - a scarecrow being much less offensive and worthy of conversation. Unfortunatelty, UMass wasn't so lucky and Steve Lappas WAS and IS the coach. His performance and expected tenure thus are valid topics by any reasonable measure and they may, in fact, be reasonably be expected to arise in any intelligent discussion of the team.
