Well, I hope you understand the frustration. People like me, and apparently others, come here looking for anything but political, or hot-button issues. When we are beaten with the Commenting Policy stick, and then see political or hot-button issues published, it's frustrating. Sort of a "Do as I say, not as I do" mentality. As OffConstantly mentioned above - it's not a good business model.

He'd be throwing away what remains of his contract with Ohio State. Interesting speculation, but I don't think it'll happen.

Buckeyeupnorth - I think you misunderstood the intention of my post. From what I understand, this has been an ongoing investigation since February. With that in mind, D'Antonio still kept the kids on the roster. Once warrants were handed down, he cut them from the team - All things I agree with. My point was, that D'Antonio did the right thing by allowing the athletes to stay with the team while the investigation ran its course. He also did the right thing by removing them from the team once warrants were issued for their arrest.

Perhaps you can unknot your knickers now......

I always try to live my life as if it were going to be published on the front page of the newspaper. With that said, when I was 18-25, what others thought, or the consequences of my actions were not always given first consideration.

In regards to Dino, as a leader, that's a tough call. What if he dismisses the kids from the team and they are found to be innocent of all charges. At that point, Dino looks as if he has no faith in his kids. If he stands by them, he's doing what, I believe, a good mentor should do. If they are charged with a crime, then he can let them go. Puts a burden on his shoulders and leaves him open to criticism, but I think it's for the best.

While I understand both sides of the argument, I have to admit, it's frustrating seeing this article every week...even every two weeks. I imagine that anybody who wants to contribute to the statue already has - unless 11W is getting 100s of new posters every week. 

It's not the fundraising that bothers me, it's the frequency with which this is re-posted.

I guess what amazes me the most is that anybody took the time to respond to OffConstantly's post in the first place.

FWIW, I don't expect 11W to lessen the frequency of this article anytime soon - this is just my $0.02.

Was going to go to CostCo, but our insurance plan would not cover them. Went to the audiologist, got a pair of Resound hearing aids for just under $500. Bluetooth for music and phone, settings for indoors and out. Work great!

I do agree, they are expensive!
