Will Wade and Dick Vitale

Post by PeteRasche »

I thought this was funny - and strange considering that absolutely nothing is being done about Wade still being employed...

Will Wade is upset at Dick Vitale for calling him out
https://www.msn.com/en-us/sports/ncaabk ... li=BBnb7Kz
Why is he upset? Not because Vitale said something that he is trying to prove untrue, but simply because Vitale "promised he wouldn't talk about it on TV". :lol: :lol:
I mean, at this point, Wade should just say "yeah, I pay players, you know it, I know it, nobody is doing anything about it, so hey top recruits, come here and get paid!"

Money quote from the story:
Wade being upset that Vitale called him out for being a cheater is one of the funniest things I have seen.

It’s debatable as to whether Will Wade should even have a coaching job right now, and he’s gonna complain about Dick Vitale preaching the truth?

Lol.

All of the above is true. However, Vitale has become very personal and not so professional. ESPN would be wise to not have Vitale calling the LSU games because it is embarrasses LSU(no love lost here), Vitale, and college basketball. Then again, wisdom and ESPN aren't always in lock step.

And yet here he is in the NCAA tournament making millions of dollars for LSU.

Poseidon is right. Vitale has gone round the bend here. I think Wade is a blatant and clumsy cheater and he coaches at LSU so five strikes there. And yet I'm on his side in this one case because Vitale's motivation isn't fair play, it's smoothing the way for the older established cheaters he counts as friends.

Obviously. That certain team that didn't make the tourney this year.

Still doesn't mean that there's something wrong with anyone calling Wade out nor that Wade should ever be in a position where he's having a conversation with an announcer and hoping, or even asking a favor, that they won't talk about his transgressions... as if he's hoping the public will forget and therefore forgive.

Wade is a cheater and he has a weak case, which is why me when the whole game is corrupt.

Vitale's focus on him as if he's special is so off base it's hard to think it's not intentional. It's also been going on for a while.
