Being a student athlete is not an easy thing. Booing is never appropriate for college sports at any level. If they play lousy stay silent.

I understand why fans do it, but I usually find it to be counterproductive. Booing can make athletes tense, which is the opposite a fan wants the team he/she roots for to be.

Well I don't think talking about the topic of gay marriage is inherently discriminatory.  I think she was afraid it would devolve into something like that...and it wasn't really the topic at hand anyway.

Sorry, my response got muddled up within sultans quote-learning how to use I-pad

Anyway, my mistake was not reading the whole thing through.  I see both sides to this now, but that is where this forum is a good tool if used properly.  Sometimes we have to tip toe around the politics in order to get the rest of the story.  It does however, bring to light how difficult it would be to speak of the some "hot button" issues that Cheryl and dr. Adams refer to without bringing the phobic word up

Ugh...cmon.

This was clearly something relatively minor that got blown out of proportion.  She has a right to determine what goes on in her class.  But you don't exercise that right absolutely, especially in an ethics class where you are inviting discussion.  

And McAdams of course piles on because he is the paragon of free thinking and balanced debate right?

It just sickens me that everything that goes on in today's world is put under a microscope and then blown up into proportions that are way greater than they should be.

I agree with the bulk of this sentiment.  This is a non-story.  MU and the teacher did everything they were suppose to do.  I disagree to some extent with the not exercising that right absolutely (although I agree with the sentiment).  In this case, the teacher is expected to provide a discrimination free classroom.

McAdams and the media should be ashamed to be making a story of this.

You are correct rocket...shouldn't have quoted you and edited it accordingly.

Wait a minute sultan, in all fairness the quote you took of me was in response to brandy asking me where drew was intimating that Cheryl couldn't defend herself
As for my wise ass comment re: news reporting-sorry-that was off topichttp://
