BobSlidell ----------- "Rugby is a women's sport and doesn't make any money for the university."

What Bob you have problems with women's sports? You have to know that Rugby is not a woman's sport thus you are disparaging the sport and woman with your sexist statement.

Rugby is a women's sport and doesn't make any money for the university. Coaches are paid millions while the players receive an education, if you want to call it that. A lot of these players come from dirt poor families so they don't have the money they could be getting if they had a job in college because unlike rugby they don't have much free time when they aren't in class. Anyway this artical was written by an Obama lover so I can't take it serious.

Good letter. I'd go a bit further and say that students that have scholarships are "paid." They are paid with an all expenses paid education that could cost a person $100,000 or more.
