REVISIONIST HISTORY by ST
Ever since I listened to Chip Kelly on Dan Patrick earlier this week, I've had this feeling of deja vu. Just a very familiar ring to it and finally last night it dawned on me. 21 years ago this October when then baseball commissioner Bart Giamatti announced Pete Rose was kicked out of baseball. MLB had hired a guy named John Dowd to investigate Rose and his antics which had become public and pretty well known. Once Petey got called to the carpet they'd accumulated a mountain of evidence that he bet on baseball and might have been involved in other shenanigans. Rose said he would agree to the lifetime ban if they pulled the plug on the whole thing because Charlie Hustle was afraid he'd end up in jail. Then Rose tried to change the facts. The 1st question after the Giamatti announcement was "did the commish think Rose bet on baseball"? and his answer was a non hesitant "YES"! Of course Rose denied this for nearly 20 years until it was time to sell a book. Chip Kelly flatly stated he told Masoli if he entered a guilty plea to his role in that dorm theft, he's suspended for the 2010 season. Masoli plead guilty to avoid a jail sentence of 2-4 years as prosecutors felt they had a rock solid case. Now Masoli is singing a different song and if you ask me, anyone who buys his crap is a sucker. Time heals wounds, it doesn't change facts. With each passing day I grow more disgusted with Mississippi coach Houston Nutt for giving this knucklehead a shot to play this year. No way he should be allowed to play D-1 ball without a year to prove he's worthy. What a joke!
