The only reason I mention this suspension story — a lacrosse player at Albany gets one for tagging a stick-stringing company in a social media post — isn’t because of the pettiness of it all (something the NCAA evidently realized, as it lifted the “indefinite” suspension after the news went public), but because of this quote from his head coach:
“He made a mistake. He put something on Instagram that violated a rule. Of course big brother monopoly we work under doesn’t allow you to do those types of things,” said Marr. “No warning, no nothing, just instant ‘you’re ineligible.'” [Emphasis added.]
That is all kinds of awesome. Hope Coach Marr isn’t looking at his own indefinite suspension for speaking truth to power.
