Biased Sports Announcing

16 July 2019 - 09:31 AM

Home team announcers are sometimes partial to their team. In that regard it will be hard to outdo these hick announcers for the Colorado Rockies of MLB. They asked for the score not to be shown. When the score came back up, they scratched it out.

College soccer coaches and the college admission scheme

Unless I missed it, there has not been a thread here on soccer and the college admission scheme.

 

Why didn't they know that this was illegal and morally wrong? Why did they go along? Why did they risk their future? Probably the same can be said of any criminal activity. People do it anyway primarily because they think they will not be caught.

Rare is a news article about education that is not about some sort of scandal or crime or social injustice. As a retired teacher, I found this article very interesting and perhaps foreboding. It may also be of interest to pre-teens and to parents of young children.
