Okay. I can see where a team might have a culture, but I don't see how a team is responsible for players having sex with women they'd brought across state lines for the purpose, doing it in front of the crew, and even offering to pay female crew members to dance for them (in some ways, this is the most disturbing piece to me, since it involves innocent people), to the point where the crew felt scared.
We're forgetting something: Athletes are responsible for their own behavior. The notion that the coach should be held accountable for a sex party to which he was not invited is rather silly.
We are in a culture where a significant subset of athletes believe they don't have to follow the rules. They believe that special treatment, including special sexual treatment, is an expected benefit to their performance. Case in point:
--Michael Irvin, when he was caught by police in a hotel room with drugs and "freelance models," famously said as he was being arrested: "Don't you know who I am?"
--During the Colorado University rape scandal, one player denied his teammates committed the crime by saying: "We don't have to rape anybody. We're Big XII Champs!"
--I forget which NBA video game it was...but there was a game where, as you get better as a player, you could "buy" attractive women with the money/points you earned.
How much of this is societal, and how much comes back to the player? In a way, we're all to blame for creating the atmosphere in which the Vikings' Love Boat Cruise is possible. But anyone who believes they can ask a stranger to dance for money before screwing somebody in front of that stranger is responsible for his own behavior, even if it's in part a product of a sick society.
Anyway, the last word on this should go to BatGirl, who, as usual, has a commentary on this that makes me laugh out loud:
[BatGirl] was totally relieved to see this headline in the morning's Strib:
Next time you guys have a big sex party and totally screw Batgirl's hopes for Legovision Park, BE ON TIME.
