Well I guess it is ok to just make stuff up then. The only coach that was alleged to have known anything was the assistant coach and again Pete turned down other offers during the investigation that went on for 4 years. Was he supposed to stay with USC for the rest of his life because Reggie Bush screwed him and the entire program? Do you even know who the other player named was?
As for roids or juicing or anything else please link something because I have never heard anything like that and really it just makes you look silly and jealous. As for the Ped's on the Seahawks, you are trying to imply that Carroll was ok with it? Or even part of it? Really, so is that why all but 1 player who was suspended for it has been shown the door? That one player being on his rookie contract still. Everyone else was either released or there was zero effort to resign them and you can bet that one player is on a short leash for a long time. If he screws up at all he will be the next casualty.
cheatin' pete was offered coaching jobs before the entire scandal happened and didn't leave. you aren't so naive to believe that the sanctions that were OFFICIALLY coming down on USC played no part in him leaving. you also aren't so naive as to think that pete carroll had NO KNOWLEDGE of any of the numerous issues present on his USC team. now i don't personally think that the evidence should have caused the punishment USC got but that is for another discussion.
and again on the seahawks, you are foolish if you think cheatin pete knew nothing about what was going on. magically he had players on his USC team busted as well. of course to a degree all teams probably have players who are using steroids or other substances (the niners included) but i think it sticks to the seahawks because of the consistency of the violations and because seachickens fans get so defensive about it. yes, your players cheated. some of the most important players on your team cheated. just accept that it happened and move on. plenty of teams have these violations.
also hilarious that cheatin pete "moved on" from these players. didn't dick sherman just get a big contract extension? "bu bu bu bu bu bu but he was found innocent!" yes, on a technicality. he is basically ryan braun of the NFL. won't surprise me if he gets popped again. but anyone else would do the same. if a player is contributing to your team and a good football player then NFL teams are going to keep that guy at all costs. Its why we picked up aldon smiths 5th year option.
anyways dont take things so seriously. it's just football. your coach is shady and your team has a recent history of systematic cheating. accept what you are and embrace it!
