Well, either he did(he did.) or his parents did(they did.)!
I was sent this link recently. While I understand it’s a link to http://carolinasucks.com and not http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com/ like the design would want you to believe, and the images may be fabricated, the facts behind them do not seem to be fabricated. The images claim that a $400k abode is the residence of Wayne Ellington Sr., the father of the former UNC bball player(06-09). I don’t quite have the resources to look up Mr. Ellington’s profession or what he was worth before his son made it to the NBA. I’m not trying to argue whether or not he could afford such a house while his son was in school(before he made money for bball). I am wondering why the house was(is) owned by James A. Mason Jr. who was a former Morehead scholar at UNC and is now a prominant businessman in Chapel Hill. Mason Jr. is a founding member of Parish Capital, who has very stong ties to Keenan-Flagler, UNC’s business school. They’re even part of the Carolina Venture Fellows program. I’m sure Roy and UNC did a good job of making sure Mason Jr. himself did not donate to the athletic program, but it’s hard to deny these ties seem to be a conflict of interest.
Frump it on for pictures and links that lead me to these conclusions.
So I realize that I’m a few days late with this post but if you haven’t noticed, we’ve taken some time away from the site and come back with some aesthetic changes! All things considered, I believe this is a better late than never situation. You see, I hate UNC Chapel Hell with all my being. I feel they have an arrogance about them that just frustrates the crap out of me….words cannot describe the hatred. This is why I was so happy when this arrogance was put on a pedestal for all the nation to see this past weekend.
During a blowout win for Roy Williams’ basketball team against lowly Presbyterian College, the almighty coach had an opposing fan removed from the premesis for yelling at one of his players during a free throw. I know what you’re thinking, that kind of penalty must have been earned by yelling a vulgar or (even worse)racist comment at a player during a key moment in the game. That would’ve been a non-story. Instead, all this fan did was yell “Hey Deon, don’t miss it!” to Deon Thompson during a free throw with 6:45 left to play in a 103-64 drumming. The free throw was made and Roy turns to the fan and says, “Why don’t you shut up! Yeah, I’m talking to you!”. He then gets the attention of his rent-a-cops and motions towards the fan, who is then dragged from his seat without a chance to find out why or show his ticket to the henchmen.
In an instance of EXTREME IRONY, Coach Williams said after the game “Let’s don’t make it a bigger thing than it is. But I just don’t think anybody should yell negative things toward our players (when) you come in on our tickets to watch our game.” So if we take him at his word, no fan should ever cheer against his team when you’re in the dean dome, otherwise you will be removed. With this logic I hope every true blue douche-nozzle that shouts at the opposing team during away games gets dragged out kicking and screaming.
To make matters worse for this Presby fan, unc’s SID tried to spin the situation in typical fashion by defacing his name and claiming he was intoxicated and in the wrong seat. However the fan was later interviewed and disputed both claims. I hope this guy is lawyered up or better yet, I hope every opposing ACC team finds a way to get him a ticket behind unc’s bench this season to continue this drama.
Click the Frump to see video of this ENTIRE incident as well as hitler’s roy’s press conference after the game. As a bonus, there’s also a video of hilarity ensuing after a unc loss to Maryland. You’ll see crying and disappointment, and if you listen closely, you’ll even hear a unc fan yelling “Go Back to the Ghetto!!” to one of the Maryland players. I guess that’s alright though since it wasn’t directed at one of roy’s players.
So, in case you haven’t noticed, some of us are a wee bit pumped up for the rivalry game tomorrow between State and carolina. I am no different. The douches are favored and “should” win this game, but that doesn’t faze me. I have a good feeling about the game. You know who else has a good feeling about the game?? Unborn baby fetuses! (or is it feti?) Below is a picture I found here. It shows an unborn child already supporting the school it will undoubtedly follow through good and bad(mostly bad…sorry little guy/gal, it’s an uphill battle). I take this as a good sign, GO WOLFPACK!!
More youtubage of The Pack after the jump!
