John Daly lawsuit tossed

Now John Daly can return to what he does best: getting cut, getting drunk and getting fat.

Several years ago I wrote a column that called Daly something that was wholly true then and is even more accurate now. I called Daly a repugnant loser who is more scoundrel than hero. I blasted him for his treatment of women and his reckless lifestyle.

He sued me. Just Monday it was announced that a judge threw out the lawsuit. It was the right move because if there is anyone who is lawsuit proof, it's the human car wreck, Daly.

Here's a copy of the summary judgment (note: large PDF file).

The victory is not just one for freedom of speech. Athletes should be held accountable for their deeds just like writers are held accountable for theirs.

Just as all of you are in your everyday lives.

So I'll repeat what I said several years ago.

Daly is a disgraceful human being who, if he were Allen Iverson, would be despised and wouldn't get the dozens of second chances he has received.

I'll be writing more on this topic in the coming months.

John Daly lawsuit tossed

 I'm certainly not a fan of Mike Freeman, but I do agree with him about Daly.  He is a fat loser and he should be banned from the PGA for life.  He has been given numerous opportunities by the PGA but did not make the best of them.  His life has been in shambles since he won his first tournament.  I guess he felt that he could do as he pleased and nothing would happen to him.  The man has been through rehab God only knows how many times and that didn't help.  As far as Mike Freeman (racist) writing something positive about Daly there is nothing to write about.  Daly is a loser who had a little fame years back and couldn't handle it.  I hope the sob never gets back on the PGA tour, he is a loser.  Now let me hear you Daly fans criticize me.

Don't get cocky Mr. Freeman just because you got a favorable ruling on aforementioned lawsuit. I find your column to be childish, arrogant, and extremely unprofessional. Frankly, I think the only reason you keep your job is because of your skin color, so I wouldn't be too quick to point out all the free passes Mr. Daly gets because of his race. Also, I seem to remember the last time I saw your picture on this web site you could stand to lay off the fried chicken for a while yourself. If you have something worth reading to write about, by all means lets see it, but please spare us this "I got revenge on whitey" B.S.

 Athletes should be held accountable for their deeds just like writers are held accountable for theirs.

 

Wait, you are held accountable for the trash you spew on this site? 

Apparently the people you are accountable to didnt get the memo......great job freeman I am suprised you didnt call Daly a racist or something,

With Freeman, it's always about race. Comparing Daly to Allen Iverson is an absurd and futile attempt of a below average writer to draw attention to himself in the only way he knows how. A quality writer takes the time and effort to do research and to proof what he writes in order to produce a quality piece that someone would like to read because it is informative rather than inflamitory.

 You are ignorant.  Too bad you don't have the talent to even become great at something.  Others who have responded to your blog for the most part hit the nail on the head.  You are really the one who is a disgrace....well, I take that back whoever allows you to write at CBS is a disgrace.  And to pull the race card?????  Have you looked at the rap sheet in the NBA and NFL lately?????  So I will repeat again....you are ignorant and the true disgrace is you being allowed to write anything!

It is so easy for hack such as yourself to write degrading commentary about about an individual who jumped into stardom on the golf tour so quickly and had to try and deal with it.  Yes he has created a lot of his own torment, but I wonder how you would handle it if you were put into the same situation.  Well, I don't believe that will ever happen because your have no talent!!

Freeman your an idiot. It's not like Daly has enough problems then having to deal with an immature writer who can't compose as good of literature as my 13 year old sister. Sure John has had his problems but who hasn't? The thing that made Daly a hero in his prime was his average joe look and personality. He's overweight and likes to drink beer... how many people can relate to that? Almost all of america. Tiger made the image of golf what it is today. If your not lean, cut, and determined... then you don't stand a chance in winning a pga tour event. John Daly gave someone like me hope when I was young. Anyways. Good for you Freeman! You won your lawsuit! Now shut the hell up or start writing about the positives that people bring to their respective sports. Instead of slandering human beings for the life they live at home. And to throw race into your story and compare him to an athlete in a completely different world of sports is absolutely ridiculous... grow up

“HEY FREEMAN HERE IS YOUR WAKE UP CALL"  Your the same guy who lied on your resume’ about a college you NEVER attended?”

Actually,,,I believe that you stated on your job application AND on your resume that you “graduated” from Delaware, when in fact you only attended Delaware!!

Apparently the “repugnant loser, scoundrel, or disgraceful human” exactly the terms that you Mr. Freeman would use when describing someone----- who would do such a thing???

Stay classy, Mike Freeman!!   Why don't you write about athletes who break the law --- possibly ones in your RACE!!

READERS need to know the type of person Mike Freeman really is!!  He also got run out of J-Ville because his columns were utter

garbage.  This guy has some of the most asinine POV's out there in the sports media.  Freeman your an embicile!!!
