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.
