Two interesting posts over at Gainline this week …
The most recent is a post with USA Rugby treasurer Tom Schmitt, who I know as a fellow rugby player, coach and administrator from here in Wisconsin. Kurt Oeler interviewed Tom on USA Rugby’s financial situation and the post also notes that Tom called out Kurt for saying that USA Rugby was “insolvent”. It seems like Tom was trying to clear up some confusion.
The second post is Kurt blogging in reaction to this month’s Rugby Magazine column by Buzz McClain, Eagles Need A Mean Streak. There’s some real bile flying back and forth in all of this. Read the comments on Gainline for this post too. People are choosing sides like this is black and white, not a very messy mush of various shades of gray as it really seems to be. At least to me anyway.
The words “pissing match” come to mind, don’t they?
