    I agree completely with your article. You nailed it. The case against Mr. Fine is suspect and our media has already convicted him. He may be guilty. I don’t know.

In the case of Jim Boeheim, we have self-righteous groups screaming for him to be fired because he initially defended his lifetime friend, which was understandable. He has since apologized. He has said he should have just waited for the facts to come out. But before it is over, just watch, he will lose his job even if he did nothing wrong.
