Let me get this straight: they're paying for a ticket to support a team that had rapists on it, start a chant against the team, and then get kicked out...am I the only one that thinks this is weird?
Why not picket/protest outside for free?
I don't know the story but I doubt this was a serious protest against the team. Probably drunken shenanigans after watching your team blow it. I don't support making fun of rape, but I've done and said stupid things while drunk before (I'm sure you guys have too). That's probably what this was.
How is campus life dealing with all of this? Is there much of an outcry? Or will it be forgotten in a few weeks?
It happened a year ago and nobody really said anything then. It took a long time until SLU had a hearing (likely to not interfere with any legal process that could come from it, but to my understanding, the girl dropped charges).
The story itself is very different based on who you ask. I've heard some say they two players raped here. I've heard where it was alcohol being involved so the girl went to the police the next day. I've also heard that they just happened to be at the location where the alleged raping took place and they were easy targets. So nobody really has any idea what happened.
Personally I wasn't going to attend any games this year unless SLU treated the players like any other student. I think they did, so I've gone to a few games already.
