Graf Pete Carroll pays tribute to those who stood up for themselves

I hope you got to know Pete Carril. or maybe not. 

Caryl, the highly successful Princeton basketball "My Way" coach for 29 years, died Monday at the age of 92 7}

He was the palate needed. He can be disgusting to referees and sometimes even his own players. He could make courtside spectators writhe in displeasure. And he wasn't tormented by reporters asking questions he didn't want to answer. 

Has had an impressive education at the University of Eastern Pennsylvania—a Lafayette alumnus, at the time a master's degree at Lehigh—and Ivy has taken a coaching job at his league college. Despite this, Caryl felt an inconspicuous sense of incongruity. 

The first time I saw him he snapped at me and tried to snap more — until I snapped back. I was told it was the key to his well-hidden heart. In February of 1980, I was assigned to cover Columbia v Princeton. It wasn't much. Princeton won his 77-50. 

But as the team was about to leave the floor at halftime, I took a break: Near Center Court Caryl and Colombian coach Buddy Mahal said he was taller than he was. Under 5 foot 6, I brought in a middle-aged bantamweight boxer. To the Ivy League when they stood swinging at others. 

was pending. Neither are connected. 

After the game, I naturally asked Caryl about halftime troubles. He glared at me and wanted to know who sent me. He breathed fire when I told him: "You came all the way from New York to write about it."

I vomited. Will you write about hell? 

Caryl glared and nodded after thinking. It was good. 

Then I went to Contez, the legendary Princeton pizza and pitcher. Caryl was holding court at a corner table when I was invited to sit down. 

Beyond that, Caryl's team taught me a lasting lesson about how the media can screw up statistics. 

Princeton played a purposeful and brilliant offense. It takes him half an hour to baseline a one-touch pass that he easily throws off the screen. 2. Poetry in slow motion. 

As a result, Princeton produced a final score that looked like a dangerously low blood pressure reading. The media added up and divided those numbers and determined that Princeton had the best defense in college basketball year after year based solely on points allowed.

Such simple unexamined statistics suggest that TV It's still being marketed as: essential "facts". NFL telecasts still acknowledge that they allowed all points scored to the attacker and all points to the defender. 

I don't know how much time, paper, and ink I've spent over 40 years making such a claim, but it's a matter of observing Caryl's Princeton and his team. It started with Still working on it, coach. 

The election is the only "holiday" that matters to his NBA.

Not just a head shake, but social what now passes as his engineering and altruistic activity. How do you show that you don't understand How do you distinguish between genuine belief and fraud? 

The NBA announced this week that there will be no games onElection Day,making it easier for NBA fans to exercise more. did. A tribute to American democracy. 

In other words, until this week, the NBA was under the impression that voters didn't vote on Election Day because an NBA game was on that night. 

The NBA either has cheap publicity or views its fans as a bunch of idiots. Was Adam Silver unable to vote because there was an NBA game that night? 

But the NBA now has five national TV games scheduled for Christmas Day, with thousands of low-wage daily workers coming to celebrate with their families. are forced to 

Then Martin Luther King, a federal holiday the NBA exploits by playing an entire schedule of games as an empty and cynical reflection on the legacy and martyrdom of Dr. There is a day of It all seems like a scam. 

Notorious NFL misanthrope Aqib Talib was accused of charging the field to incite brawls, and with his nuisance. A child's soccer coach, Yaqub, shot and killed the opposing coach (78) Michael Hickmon in a Texas game played by a 9-year-old. 

But who doesn't carry a loaded gun to a child's game? 

Akib Talib, as a cornerback for his five teams in the NFL, has one of the worst acts in league history, ripping the chain from the Raiders' neck with his 2 Best shown in one episode. Receiver Michael Crabtree when Talib was with the Broncos. The second episode started a brawl that led to both being ejected.

Talib was a teammate of the Buccaneers before playing in the NFL. . He was then shot in his leg outside his joint on the Dallas Strip early in the morning. Police later concluded that the wound was self-inflicted and that he had lied to police. Free to play. 

Three years later, he was accused of beating a taxi driver in Florida and jailed for resisting arrest. 1 game suspension, play continued. 

He was then issued a warrant for aggravated assault with a lethal weapon after he was accused of shooting his sister's boyfriend. Charges were dropped due to insufficient evidence. 

And there are many other places they come from. 

But under the pandering of his GM and team his owner of Roger Goodell and Machiavellian, such a player is spoiled and the "National Feron's League" is cheaper than it really is. Feel free to bring down his NFL reputation until it's no longer cynical. 

Last year, after retirement, Talib was hired by his FOX as his analyst for the game. This year he was hired as an analyst for his NFL "Thursday Night Football" on his Amazon. 

Neither network knew or cared who Talib was. Or you chose him because he met your requirements. 

And now he is accused of inciting an episode in which his brother shot and killed an opponent's coach at a children's game.

Serena sneaks away 

This week Serena Williams left the court after being blown away in Cincinnatiwithout speaking a word into the court mic. A promiscuous Yahoo who came to cheer her on during her supposed farewell party. Always a graceful loser, she bolted before her scheduled post-match press conference. 

Old Serena. Perhaps she will again declare that her actions are in defense of women's rights. And because everyone loves Selena, her TV commercial endorsement continues. Even if not.

Dairy Queen recommender Fernando Tatis at an ice cream stand Jr. , received an 80-game suspension for PEDAnother Dairy Queen TV ad beneficiary White Sox shortstop Tim Anderson — boastful provocateur who spits the N-word in vulgarity — has been suspended for the third time in the past two seasons, this time in a direct confrontation with the referee. 

By the way, Tatis was such a vulgar showboat that he was voted the star of the league's video game "The Show" sales by MLB. Of course he was. 

And now he is serving a half-season suspension for alleging a case of ringworm that he treated with a topical ointment that entered his bloodstream as an anabolic steroid. 

Then there is Roger Goodell's favorite, Snoop Dogg. Snoop Dogg was known for crime, vulgarity, N-word spewing, crotch grabbing, drug-loving, police-hating, and misogyny. And his fortune as an endorser of commercials for everything from beer to Chrysler. He now markets children's cereals.
