There has always been low key resentment with how there is a double standard when it comes to athletes and the liberty way. This certainly won't help that.
I was pretty shocked it was happening in the locker room. Seems odd but I'm not losing sleep over it or anything.
As a former athlete at LU, albeit a long time ago, I have always heard this
. (Heard the same crapola in HS). Bottom line, 99% of it is jealously. Mostly by students who are obese, snowflake, athletic wannabees, who couldn't hit a slow-pitch softball, or a baseball off a tee, if given a week to do so. Or the guys who throw a baseball like obama or who couldn't run a lap around a Cherrio. .
Does it occur sometimes? Sure. Does it also happen to other high-profile, rich, connected, students who are non-athletes? Absolutely.
It is that way everywhere, just not in athletics. It permeates our society at ever corner. Doesn't make it right, but it is reality.
If one gets upset over a cigar, maybe they should find something to take up some more of their time. Obviously, some have too much time on their hands. I wish they hadn't pulled out the cigars, but really this is extremely minor. Akin to chewing gum in school.
