She should be ashamed

When a reporter at the NCAA Women's Final Four last weekend tried to ask Duke coach Gail Goestenkors how the problems on campus ( white lacrosse players accused of raping a black woman) were affecting her team, she was cutoff by event moderator Debbie Byrne. Byrne said that no questions along those lines would be allowed.

Hmmmm. And that would be because??????? Women cannot comment on that subject?

The same type question was posed to Duke's J.J. Reddick at the men's Final Four and he gave an honest answer. Maybe it was the NCAA women's gestapo that decided in advance that the subject couldn't be broached, but it made Byrne look very bad.

Of course, Goestenkors could have taken the initiative and said, "Hold on there, Debbie, I'd like to answer that."

I read about this. Aside from the poor judgement of Byrne, I would be embarassed if none of the media pressed the issue. They don't work for Byrne.
