Apology relayed for Sidney display
By Barbara Huebner, Globe Staff, 10/14/2000

There were apologies all around yesterday afternoon from the US Olympic men's 4x100-meter relay team, which came under heavy criticism for what many saw as an offensive, unpatriotic display of preening and posturing after winning the gold medal two weeks ago in Sydney.

''Sadly, our gold medal has become a symbol not of hard work and victory, but a reminder of disgrace,'' said relay captain Jon Drummond, reading from a statement during a teleconference. ''We hope through our words and actions in the coming months we will convince everyone of our character, our respect for the flag, and our pride in being Americans. We guarantee that what happened in Sydney will not be repeated.''

black sportsAfter defeating silver medalist Brazil and bronze medalist Cuba, the US squad of Drummond, Bernard Williams, Brian Lewis, and Maurice Greene first gathered in a circle to say a prayer, then began to cavort around the track in a lengthy victory lap in which some of them stripped to the waist, used the American flag as a turban, and struck poses emulating professional wrestlers, using the flag as a prop. As the celebration went on, cheers from the Australian crowd were punctuated by whistles of derision, and even other US athletes competing that night condemned the display. Later, on the victory stand, several on the relay team clowned with their medals after receiving them from former Secretary of State Henry Kissinger.

''We meant no disrespect or offense with our actions, and we understand that our behavior caused pain and anger for many Americans,'' said Drummond. ''We maybe got out of control.''

''We're truly sorry for it,'' said Greene, who also won gold in the 100-meter dash. ''A lot of war men have e-mailed me how disgraced they feel.''

Drummond also acknowledged that, in the week following the Games, he got 150-200 e-mails a day, almost all negative and some with ugly racial overtones. ''It was horrible,'' he said.

Added Williams, seen by many as the prime offender for his prolonged antics: ''I am very sorry, very apologetic if I offended anybody.'' At 22, Williams is the youngest of the quartet.

Craig Masback, CEO of USA Track & Field, read a statement in which he called the incident ''disconcerting'' and said the four athletes will speak to young people about their actions and consequences as part of a USATF program. He also said that in the future the organization will inform its athletes in writing of the expectations of them and consequences for ''actions that do not meet the standards we set.''

Summed up Greene: ''We just lost our minds.''

The Detroit News RIVER ROUGE -- Four River Rouge High School football players were arraigned Monday in district court on charges they raped a 14-year-old student at the school.

Another Report of rape by footballers stuns Central High School -- Students and parents at St. Paul's Central High School reacted with a mixture of dismay and anger Tuesday as details surfaced about an alleged rape at the school Friday. Hoping to restore a sense of security in the building, school leaders Tuesday clamped down on students in hallways, sending home kids who were in the halls without a pass and keeping closer watch over the school's nooks and labyrinthine corridors. The alleged attack on a 15-year-old Central sophomore girl was a topic of painful conversation all day. Prosecutors on Tuesday charged three Central senior boys with criminal sexual conduct and kidnapping.
Durelle L. White
, 18, was arraigned on two counts of first-degree criminal sexual conduct and one count of kidnapping. Joseph E. Phipps Jr., 17, appeared before a juvenile court referee. Charges in his case are identical to those against White. Phipps is scheduled for a hearing before Ramsey County District Judge Kathleen Gearin on Nov. 2, when the county attorney's office will seek permission to try him in adult court. Prosecutors will also seek adult status for Dushaune P. Poe, 16, who turned himself in to police Tuesday afternoon. He is charged with one count each of first-degree criminal sexual conduct and kidnapping. He is not accused of having sexual contact with the girl. All three played football at Central.

Eugene KaneBlack Sports: Black athletes: You better watch it by Eugene Kane
Let the meeting come to order. As you all know, this is the first gathering of BABB, otherwise known as Black Athletes Behaving Badly.

SMU symposium debates ethics of athletics
The Dallas Morning News UNIVERSITY PARK
Describing sports as the "All-American addiction" and calling for the restructuring of intercollegiate athletics, author John R. Gerdy sparked an afternoon of insightful debate and at times was the focus of harsh criticism in an ethics symposium at the Maguire Center for Ethics at SMU on Thursday. Gerdy's presentation explained how college sports have become destructive in America.

"Sport is what we talk about to avoid talking about something meaningful," Gerdy said. The athletic climate "expects cheating" and "glorifies violence" Gerdy added. In a world where "watching instead of participating" has contributed to obesity,

"Someone runs faster or jumps higher," Gerdy said. "Those skills are of little value
in the information-based global economy." Commercialism has compressed the boundaries separating youth, high school, collegiate and professional athletics, some argued, while higher education has, in some ways, contributed to the lack of ethical standards in athletics by turning away from issues.

KANSAS CITY, Mo. - Oakland Raiders receiver Andre Rison surrendered to Jackson County authorities on four charges of writing bad checks. Rison, who spent the last three seasons with the Kansas City Chiefs, posted $10,000 bond and was released.

Sports: Hepatitis B May Be Transmitted On Football Field
NEW YORK (Reuters Health) - While the hepatitis B virus (HBV) is usually passed on through sex or injection drug use, new evidence suggests the football field may offer another route of transmission. Japanese investigators have documented cases of hepatitis B transmission among 11 players on one college football team. This ``mass outbreak'' of liver-infecting HBV suggests that transmission may occur ``even among members of a sports team,'' researchers report in the September 11th issue of Archives of Internal Medicine. Transmission probably occurred when the players were exposed to each others' open wounds during practice, according to Dr. Kazuo Tobe and colleagues at Okayama University in Japan.

Bobby JacksonMinnesota Basketball Program Probed MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - Federal investigators are trying to determine whether academic cheating in Minnesota's basketball program occurred before a former tutor did coursework for players, the Saint Paul Pioneer Press reported Thursday.

The Black Sports Cult and the American Dream
The University will not release 'academic records' of black athletes - many allege a conspiracy of coaches, teachers, administrators, alumni and the media to recruit illiterate
below-average intelligence blacks solely for the promotion of the 'Black Sports Cult'
that has become a 'religion' in American with millions of majority Americans 'brainwashed'
with their obsessed voyeuristic fixation on watching the scholastically retarded sports heroes jump up and down, bump into each other, perform ritualistic homosexual acts, do strange primitive 'victory dances' on the field and ritualistically follow the cabalistic magical numerics of the 'scores' of the games.

The Black Sports Cult promotes gambling, drinking in front of TV, Sports Bar alcohol syndrome, obesity and the shorting of life associated with this lifestyle.

This is reminiscent of the "Bread and Circuses" of the last days of the Roman Empire.
Today it is "Food Stamps and the Black Sports Cult".

The Barbarians will get tired of Foreign Aid. They have infiltrated their spies and are
sharpening their swords. One day America may be rudely awakened when the Barbarians
have sacked the cities, raped the women, eaten the dogs and enslaved those not too fat
for work in the slave labor camps.

Genetics of athletics: The controversy over race Entine, the Southern California author of "Taboo: Why Black Athletes Dominate Sports and Why We're Afraid To Talk About It,"
has been widely vilified since his controversial book was published in January.
Entine told me, "I'm a white liberal Jew - I've been called the 'left-wing Rush Limbaugh.' "
I want to acknowledge the evolutionary advantages of blacks . . . science does support the notion that people of West African origin are best at short-distance running, people of Eastern African origin best at long-distance running, whites have superior upper body strength, Chinese have the most flexible bodies, etc. (however he inconsistantly holds PC dognma that) "Science does not support the notion that blacks are less intelligent," Entine emphasized.
