Well actually, KU didn't do anything since the players they paid to get didn't help them win the national title. Since DeSousa didn't deliver what they paid for, it shouldn't be against NCAA rules.

Only goes to show that the definition of bribery is lost on the uneducated.

Probably why most trumperheads can't seem to wrap their heads around it

I t hink you're hurting. it's been a long road with so many promises made by the dems to impeach, remove Trump. has to eventually hurt to have some many 'promises' unfulfilled/dashed in such short order.

I see you lashing out.

Nah....just giving some direction to MAC's sloppy, blind lashing out. There appear to be only a couple of us left thinking clearly around here.

Nah...KITNooga is right. You are hurting. You thought you had something....4 or 5 or 6 times...But you didn't. How does one get misled that many times and declare they are thinking clearly? Oh yeah, the filter on your rabbit hole. It works, but I have a feeling you will change the settings because suddenly, Venice IS sinking. And then the barage of "I never said _________________________." will come. Like the seasons.

Your lack of reading comprehension and clouded logic resulting from personal animus towards me are NOT my failings. They are yours. I thought you guys were all about "personal responsibility"..... a little less projecting and victimization might help you think a bit more clearly.
