This course of events should not surprise anybody.  Contrary to what some believe, the United States operates under the rule of law.  Depriving a duly registered student of access to a campus activity SOLELY because others objected to his participation was an action that would never stand up in court.  So the mess continues, and the university administration brought this all upon themselves by pandering to the mob.  And for the fifth time let me say that I am not happy that this character came here.

Despite your continued insistence that the university legally has to give this kid a spot on the team, I still don't see why that is the case.  People don't make sports teams all the time.  It can be for talent, character, whatever...Everyone doesn't get a spot on the football team until they break the school's code of conduct as a student.

The school screwed this up for sure.  They never should have aggressively courted him for the team.  They should have had the foresight to realize that people would react negatively to one of the most well-known gang rapists in the state being welcomed on to the football team---particularly on the heels recent such ugly events in college football around sexual misconduct (most notably Baylor).  And, once they embraced the kid, this half measure was pretty crappy too.  No one was happy with "he is on the team, but he isn't".

As an aside---if a convicted gang rapist who served less than a 10 month sentence thinks there is some sort of anti-male bias (as his court argument suggests) in the world then he certainly needs some more rehabilitation.

People are stupid.  There are many other things to worry about than this stupid issue.  The kid did his time and in America that means you are free.  He still has to register where he lives under our laws. 

At what point did we turn into a socialism or communism? After you pay the price by doing time and have to deal with reputation /perception that will challenge you forever you continue to be judged are are not permitted to have the freedom of everyone else?  WTF people.  Seriously?  This is stupid and all political.  Some twenty something retard  is driving this because they have no life and will never hold an important job or position in our society.  This is their 2 min of fame, their flash in the pan before they become some sort of social worker.  This is as dumb as the motjerfuclers that want to bring in Syrian refugees.  We have a right to keep them out for as long as we want because they aren't citizens.  However, since this kid is a citizen he has rights that are being taken away but the godamned communists don't understand it.  They should do something productive  not destructive.  What are the ends to the mean here?  I will tell you.  NOTHING.  They will only try to destroy a person with issues that have taken him partly down that road.  What ******* consequence will come if he plays?  Nothing.  But if he doesn't play it only hurts him.  Good for the judge.  I'm glad I don't live there anymore.  Town is running around with f'img morons now.

These protesting ********s need a lesson in civics, government, and history because they are coming from the dark ages where they clearly belong.  This is Salem witch trial bullsh**.

To the morons in the dim range of the IQ scale answer me this.......do you think his individual rights are being violated?  How would you like it if I shamed you on social media and got a petition against you because you are a w****?   Being a w**** is illegal and it would really suck if you were the husband of the w****.  But let's just say the w**** was jailed and served her time.  Now the w**** wants to get a drivers license but now I protest it.  What the he'll does that have to do with anything? 
 You are just a bunch of retards.  This has nothing to do with football.  Nothing.

So...the Salem witch trials---you know those people weren't witches, right?  But, this Richmond kid is actually a gang rapist. 

I also find it hilarious you find Syrian refugees more threatening than an actual convicted gang rapist.  I don't understand what refugees have to do with this, but...

I also don't understand how being against a gang rapist representing the university community in a sport with a significant rape culture problem is akin to socialism or communism or whatever temper tantrum you are trying to have over "political correctness".


My point about the witch trials is that some of the women that were accused did commit crimes of the day but some were innocent. Look up the origin of the term "Witch Hunt".  They were actively looking to prosecute people they disliked or didn't understand.  Same thing here.  You don't agree that he should be on the team, and therefore you don't think he has any rights.

Idealists such as yourself are a huge problem.  You are inconsistent in the application of laws and rights since you have to agree with it.  But of you disagree.....well then the rules are different for those people.  People just like you have elected a Mayor in Youngstown with a criminal record too and he represents the city.  But that's ok because you agree with some part of the political party he stands for or something else. 

You are obviously one of the retards that desperately needs a civics lesson based on your statement on Syrian refugees.   How many other people convicted of crimes attend universities for education?  You would be surprised.  You want to slice and dice nomenclature because that is all you know how to do.  I know exactly where you stand and see the colors of the rainbow in your statements.

LOL.  Wow.  I would have responses for all of this, but when you are in a conversation with a person who says things like "You are obviously one of the retards", it is best to know the kind of person you are dealing with and walk away.

gang rapist could better be refered to as a group rapist.  the was a group (gang) of people participating/watching.  I have never seen Richmond listed as beloinging to a organizined gang.

Boston, one quick clarification. The university did not have to legally give this kid a spot on the team.  If I were the athletic director, it would have never happened.  But the fact is that it did happen.  He was on the team, and he clearly had the athletic talent.  He was denied the opportunity to participate solely because of popular reaction.  That is the circumstance that conflicted with the law.

Bo and Tressel are both on board for this kid playing. It's others in the administration who are making a fuss because of some people in the community being upset.

Based on today's standards I would of never been eligible .   I was 16 in in 1976 and with the exception of NOT fondling an intoxicated female,I did many things that would make the snowflakes of today go nuts.  I grew up and will let a higher judge then a bunch of leftists be the judge.   Hope the same goes for Richmond.

My understanding which has been confirmed by the news media is that he was removed from the roster.  I believe it was several weeks ago

I remember reading about this exact thing happening with the Columbus Blue Jackets. They were giving away all kinds of good stuff until the season ticket holders started complaining that they were the loyal ones and got zero. YSU takes us season ticket holders for granted with not even a kind "thank you".
