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?

  One instance would be where the health of the mother is at grave risk if she continues a pregnancy, among a few others.

I don't know how old you are, but 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. Who could tell a woman or her husband she had to die for her unborn child.

I'm not "pro-incarcertaion" in the sense that I think we should just go around locking up people for the hell of it.

Is this what they're doing in Charlotte? It's not happening here in Asheville. I don't think it's a problem anywhere, just a stupid example to make a weak point.

 When you learn to consider and understand all the factors that enter into a diffucult decision, and more importantly, when you can feel compassion for others facing difficult life choices, you will no longer make such shallow assessments of very complicated ethical and emotional matters.

Yeah vrange, I guess you're right, a rubber is a terrible thing to waste. I know it was always a tough decision for me, I mean when the "ethical" alternative is to kill an unborn baby, a baby that people are waiting in line to adopt if you just let it be born, why waste a good rubber, right? 

Oh, by the way, thanks for the 1, I sent you one back.

Since you invoked the Ten Commandments....then how do you explain "Whoso sheddeth man's blood, by man shall his blood be shed?"....I'd say that draws a pretty clear distinction between the death penalty and your other analogies.    And the actual defnition of "kill" in the Ten Commandments is a pre-meditated act of murder.  Agree or disagree, but don't invoke the Biblical analogies to prove your point.

Consistency. War is ok, death penalty is ok but stopping a pregnancy is murder. give me a break. There is no small print in the 10 commandments. You don't get to pick and chose which ones you follow and then tell other people they have to follow the ones you chose.

Pro-abortion is accurate because "choice" infers at least two options. if you mention keeping the baby to one of these planned parenthood nuts they fly off the handle.  abortion is their only option , they are pro-abortion.

Majerus is a fat-a$$ loud mouth that cries when his team doesn't get his way.  I watched him all his years at Utah, so I do know what i'm talking about.  I'm glad you brought this issue to a forefront, because Majerus needs to be run out of St. Louis, and go and try to get on the Subway diet.  It worked for that one guy.

Famous basketball coach Rick Majerus flips off the official scorer, it goes unreported until this very blog, and you "just don't get it?" What the hell do you get?

Way to go Doyel,

Come here to check up on sports and BOOM, get hit with another overanalyzed political topic, that no one will agree on and will move over to a back and forth pointless argument. 

Personally, I find it interesting that he is really struggling in his first year, and it isn't a big deal at all to see a coach go nuts, since it happens so regularly. 

What exactly is the purpose of this story?  An attempt to spark a non-sports related debate? I just don't get it.

Majerus brings fun and controversy to an otherwise dull day.  Thank you coach.  Anyway, we have all foregone the Adult bookstore for images of Ashley Judd in the Kentucky stands.  We just haven't admitted to it out loud.  Opps.  Damn. 

BTW...coach is pro-choice.  Their is a slight difference. 

Just a thought...without Majerus there would not be a Keith Van Horn.  Without Van Horn, there would not have been a Kidd to Mavs trade.  Does this matter?

For Kevinmcc,

"Sorry if that offends you, but if you are for the act of abortions being legal then you are pro-abortion."

You couldn't be more wrong.

Although I regard any abortion as a sad, sometimes tragic, event, there are situations where they may unfortunately be necessary. One instance would be where the health of the mother is at grave risk if she continues a pregnancy, among a few others.

I am VERY far from being "Pro-abortion", yet I am not so egocentric as to believe that my preference should be imposed on another person who is trying to deal with their own problems, and making a decision that effects the course of THEIR future, not mine. Further, I would never want women who are going to make that choice, regardless, to have to return to hacks and coat hangers.

I would also rather that no one need be incarcerated. Yet there are those who commit crimes from minor to horrific, and many of those people need to be removed from society to protect others from a repetition of their crimes. So no, I'm not "pro-incarcertaion" in the sense that I think we should just go around locking up people for the hell of it. We live in a REAL world, where doing an unpleasant thing can at times prevent an even worse circumstance from occuring.

People today are far too quick to try to categorize everything as "On' or "Off', "Right' or 'Wrong' ... no in-betweens. This lazy way of looking at difficult issues causes all too many people to rush their own decisions, or to judge others with no deeper understanding of the problem faced than Yes-No. Life is only sometimes that simple. When you learn to consider and understand all the factors that enter into a diffucult decision, and more importantly, when you can feel compassion for others facing difficult life choices, you will no longer make such shallow assessments of very complicated ethical and emotional matters.

Pro-choice doesn't mean either one of the statements above. These are emotional distortons created by those with a different viewpoint who either don't understand the issue because of their emotional involvement or chose to resort to charecter defamation to argue thier own views.

 The vernacular pro-life came from the same political tactics that pro-choice came from, the simple use of labeling to  better support a viewpoint

Well thank you Farmer Brown for dropping by and spreading your fertilizer.

Since we're talking about a "choice" of whether to kill (abort) an unborn baby as a means of birth control, and no other issue to consider, how can you be pro-choice without being pro-abortion?

I have no emotional involvement beyond abhorring the practice of killing a viable baby just to turn a buck.

You can't defame the "charecter" of someone who has no character.
