Chip Kelly’s Oregon Violations Don’t Surprise Me – College Sports Are Dirty SportsBREAKING NEWS, Coaching Staff, Eagles, News Tuesday, April 16th, 2013
It looks like the Oregon football program is headed to probation because of violations it committed while Chip Kelly was the head coach. Kelly released a statement today about the matter.
“I am aware of the recent reports and of the ongoing investigation being conducted by the NCAA and the University of Oregon. While at Oregon, I know we were fully cooperative with all aspects of the investigation and I will continue to contribute in any way that I can. But until the NCAA rules on the matter, I will have no further comment.”
Today he went further while answering a question about whether the coming penalties had anything to do with him leaving. “No, that had absolutely no impact on my decision to leave,” Kelly said. It doesn’t pass the smell test, but this is understandable when you’re working in a corrupt and unjust system.
This doesn’t surprise me at all and I’m not really mad at Kelly even though, I don’t think he’s coming completely clean. I know about how they set up the cheating. The coach doesn’t do it, but the program has somebody else do it, so that the coach and the school president have plausible deniability. This is the way gangsters, drug pushers and the worst parts of our society behave.
You’ve got a system that is broken, but there are so many people making millions of dollars so nobody wants to change it.
The behavior that was unmasked during the Penn State scandal is the type of behavior that’s going on far too much in college sports because the system is set up to violate young athletes to make millions and billions of dollars and they don’t want anything to change.
Kelly was doing what he had to do because most of competitors are doing the same thing, but haven’t been caught yet. I’m confident that most of the big money college programs are cheating in some manner. They go by the philosophy that in order to make breakfast you’ve got to “break some eggs”.
When are they going to admit it, that big time college sports like major college football and basketball are professional organizations. I consider them thieves, which bring in billions of dollars but don’t pay its most valuable employees, but make like they’re trying to help the players. They’re really trying to help themselves. The whole thing is hypocritical and that’s why you have so many scandals.
College coaches and programs know that they can use small sums of money, prostitutes, drugs and other items to entice poor, high school aged athletes to come to their schools. Everybody at the college programs are making big money, so they have a huge incentive to cheat.
This is why the scandal went on a Penn State. It was because of the money. There are millions of people, who will break laws for big money.
It disgusts me. I read about how a kid like Sharrif Floyd, who will go amongst the first ten in the draft, grew up in squalor in North Philadelphia and was abused as a youngster. When he moved out of the house of a man, who was his tormentor and who he had previously thought was his father, his coaches couldn’t even help him because of NCAA rules. He was having trouble finding food to eat, yet the NCAA rule prohibits his coaches or any decent adult from helping him. Think about that. This kid is on the street basically, but nobody can help him because he might be a future college athlete.
There’s something wrong with such a selfish organization which makes rules like that while bringing in billions of dollars off the work of young men, who subject themselves to head injuries and bodily harm, which will stay with them the rest of their lives, yet aren’t compensated or protected by workmen’s comp laws.
All of these colleges have professors who are screaming about other industries which take advantage of the underprivileged, and they violate the poor more than anybody else.
