    I think the alleged gang rape should do well for "Duke hate".

    Who'd have thought the lacrosse team would've been the pervs?

    I have difficulty working up hate for Duke -- the team at least. They can't buy players like the Yankees, and the players have to meet fairly rigorous academic standards. I really enjoyed watching Grant Hill and Shane Battier play.

    That said, their fans are really obnoxious. And I still enjoy watching them lose.

    I've got no hate for Duke - same reasons as Ambulance - and I always had love for tough, defensive, energy players like Shane Battier.

    On the other hand, the Lacrosse team rape story is just fucked up. I mean, strippers and general unruly college behaviour, fine. I've pissed on my share of lawns myself. But racial slurs are highly uncool, and rape is just disgusting. I honestly don't see how a dude with any self-respect could do that. I mean, hell, I want girls (okay, a girl, I'm protecting my ass here, being married and all) to be jumping me. That someone was not into it would be a turnoff enough. And yes, I understand that rape is more about the power than the sex; but if you really want to be a badass, go into a biker bar and break a whiskey decanter over some 300 lbs dude's head instead. That I could respect (even if your dumbass is in traction for a month afterwards [​IMG]
