The #AskEmmert Q&A Is Going Poorly
 
Quote:

Mark Emmert is on Mike & Mike this morning, and the show asked listeners to submit questions for the NCAA president on Twitter, tagged #AskEmmert. It has, predictably, turned into a mini-revolt against the NCAA.

Some of the best so far:

#askemmert shouldn't the president of the non-profit NCAA be an unpaid volunteer position? The job is it's own reward!

Non profit doesn't mean unpaid. You can attack him for doing a lot of stupid stuff or say he should be fired but dumb to say he should do it for free.

They should remake the keyboard of computers and such to add in a character / symbol to go with ! ? ", etc to denote sarcasm that must be used and included in grammar courses.

The logic of the comparison is flawed hence why I ignore the stupidity of it.

Would this be reverse trolling? (I know, probably not a thing...like 'reverse racism')

I mean, isn't Emmert trolling all of us when he goes on about amateurism?

Emmert is a sanctimonious prick. Athletes are taking spots from "paying students"? Scholarships guarantee that schools get paid for every scholarship athlete. They aren't admitted without payment. Payment is given after documents are signed each year. That money comes from benefactors and boosters of the university.

WTF is he trying to sell? Nobody is buying it, whatever it is.

He really overestimated the chances of that going well.
