This matters because I think it is one of the many reasons we struggle to get cooperation from the city and faculty, as well as the CU admin who pander to some of these morons. Here a choice few comments: - "CU has made some awesomely bad decisions, usually in defense of their moronic football program" - "CU Football is profitable for CU Football. Were it actually profitable for the school as a whole, then perhaps they wouldn't need to raise tuition 5%. Did CU Football profits pay for the fact that it cost twice as much to squash this protest as it did in the past to oversee it? Nope. That money came out of the pockets of parents and the students who take out loans to go to school", - "CU Football is heavily subsidized by the University, in some very public ways, and in some not-so-public ways. Football isn't profitable, not even close, when you add up everything. In fact, there are only a handful of actual profitable college football programs in existence, and, sorry for you, but the few that make money are all large colleges with a much better record over the decades than CU. A mediocre (most of the time) CU football team certainly does not have the recognition or pull to make a profit" - "If the poobahs who run the CU zoo were seriously concerned with bad PR, they'd quit giving themselves fat pay raises and disband the football program" - "What?! A football player has been accused (and is likely guilty of) committing a crime? I'm SHOCKED! SHOCKED, I TELL YOU!" - "If you can honestly sit there and say that NONE of their negative publicity has anything to do with their out of control football players creating drunken brawls, committing rape and, as of late, strolling into a women's shower room, you clearly have no clue what's going on" - Re: Percak, who was later found not guilty - "You obviously don't. Remember, big, drunk and stupid is no way to go through life" - "And let the 2nd half of the CU football teams season begin, public drunkenness, disorderly conduct,sexual assaults...."
