I am old enough to have been on campus with Leo Jenkins


that at a time when being a "Pirate" was being defined.

I can tell you without question that Jenkins would have looked at this and said, "yes, you do have a right to question publicly one of our own, but in your capacity, which in this case has nothing to do with the job performance of another, what have you to gain by doing this, while I point out that your "critique" publicly does nothing but question our concerted effort to those on the outside."

It's one thing to question the actions of a public figure, it is entirely something else to try and label a public figure as was done here.

It's just like those posts on the Facebook page during Saturday's game by supposed ECU fans. My wife made the comment about how much cruder and coarse were the comments by ECU fans compared to those of the Marshall fans. We are our own worst enemy and there is evidence that the actions of our fan base has hurt our national perception at times. From fights in the stands, to running down and striking officials during or just after a game. (Not once, but twice)

I will say that the willingness to criticize and defame in here is quintessential America right now. Which by any standard is bad for the country.
