Rick Majerus is losing his mind

St. Louis coach Rick Majerus, who already has raised eyebrows this season by stating a pro-abortion pro-choice stance that conflicts with the Catholic leadership of his university, was quietly reprimanded this week after coming unhinged Saturday during an 81-64 loss at Charlotte.

According to people at the game, Majerus lost control of his emotions after a shot-clock issue went against his Billikens. Majerus approached the scorer's table, found the offending official and unleashed verbal obscenities. One source said Majerus made an obscene gesture as well.

Officials at Charlotte and the A-10 confirm that Majerus was rebuked by the league and has apologized to Charlotte.

Of course the real question is this: What would Ashley Judd think of Majerus now?

Rick Majerus is losing his mind

The title of your post is:  "Rick Majerus is losing his mind."  Your first point is:  he raised some eyebrows because he expressed his "pro-abortion" position. 

Stick to the sports, man.  I'll go elsewhere for my social commentary.  I'll make up my mind about abortion and you make up yours.  See, that's pro-choice.

Is anyone "pro-abortion?"

That sounds a lot like that tactic Douglas used in his debates against Abe Lincoln.  He wasn't personally for slavery, and didn't own any slaves, but thought it should be everyone's right to decide for themselves whether or not they wanted to own any.

Abe Lincoln responded, "But if it is a wrong, he cannot say people have a right to do wrong." (1)

The truism Abe holds just as true with respect to abortion.  No one has a "right" to deliberately kill an innocent human being(2), not even that child's parents.  Not even that child's mother.

Hilary Clinton not only thinks it's a right, but thinks that the government should subsidize it.  She even thinks our government should force this "right" down the throats of people and governments strongly opposed  She pushed hard to make this "right" enforceable by the World Court.  The Clintons also tied much federal aid, including disaster aid, to countries' willingness to push birth control and abortion on unwilling citizens.  They not only fought hard against laws outlawing even the grotesquely cruel partial-birth abortion, but even against the "Born Alive Infant Protection Act" which criminalized the practice of killing children who were "accidentally" born during an abortion, or who were induced and left to die as a form of abortion.  Rick Majerus was there publicly speaking out for her.

He may have been a private citizen, but was only interviewed because he was the celebrity basketball coach of the St. Louis Billikens.  The fact that it was a Jesuit Catholic institution made the story all the juicier.

How did this ever become a Planned Parenthood vs. Pro-Life discussion?  Majerus flipped off a ref, a funny story and he apologized.  Like so many quys in his profession, which is very distressful and pressure packed, he lost it.  No one got killed. need to stay on subject and Doyel is a total tool anyway.  He even knows that.............................

vranger,

Regardless of how smart I am, I'm smarter than you and I wont fall for your "make up something I said" tactics, or maybe it's just that you haven't reached seventh grade English level yet. 

You said: So you agree that a health risk to a mother is a valid reason for an abortion.

Here's what I said concerning the "health risk of the mother": the health of the mother has always (in my lifetime) been an acceptable, legal reason for abortion, even before Roe vs Wade, unless you're Catholic.

That's a reference to it's legality and the Catholic Church's position, not my opinion of it, and it relates to health of the mother. 

Here's the opinion I stated, it isn't in agreement with you at all: Who could tell a woman or her husband she had to die for her unborn child.

This is a statement concerning which side of the surface of the Earth a person is on, not her general health risk.

Have you not taken any English classes or do you think you're so smart you can twist peoples words and they wont notice?

Thanks for another 1. I'll send you one right over.

Well ... I know that for me, murder is wrong, but I don't feel that it's correct to push my beliefs on someone else!  They should have the right to choose for themselves!  :)

Sweet.

I think there needs to be more verbal characters ala Bobby Knight in College B-Ball. If the kids can't talk smack during the game then the coachs should be able to cut loose every now and then.

Senor Doyel,

So the point of your story was a one line quip in the middle of the blog, saying that one source said they saw him flip off the official scorer?  Then why didn't you start off with that??? If the point of your post was to create discussion about his very questionable behavior, then you would think that is what people would be talking about.   Instead, you preferred to lead off with a dumb jab at him that in my opinion, doesn't have anything to do with your point. Now, the message board is filled with people mistaking cbssports.com for cnn.com.

If you ask me, the point of your blog was an opportunity to take a jab at him over something you apparently disagree with him about.  But I suppose you were trying to point out his questionable on court behavior.  Next time, maybe make that clear.
