Sports Speak Up! Readers react to UNM Title IX report, NBA Finals Game 1

IF I UNDERSTAND (T)itle IX math, all we need to do is delete 110 male athletes (that would be football) or add 110 females to new sports such as fencing, field hockey, gymnastics, ice hockey, lacrosse, pistol, rifle, rowing, and/or synchronized swimming. The fans are already lining up to see those sports.

UNM PRESIDENT Garnett Stokes holds a Ph.D and commands a salary of $400,000 a year. Athletic Director Eddie Nunez has a Master’s Degree and makes $300,000. Yet, neither individual feels confident in making decisions regarding their own Athletic Department. So, they hire a consultant at a cost of $53,000. In this case, the consultant is a former colleague of Ms. Stokes at Missouri. This looks like a lucrative “perk” to me. Wondering why UNM has a negative image in the community.

THE RECENT New York owners of Paa-Ko (Ridge Golf Club) better hope the percentage of out of state golfers increases from 45 percent to 95 percent based on their new rates. My guess is that their visit to NM will be a brief one.

THE CHARGING CALL that was called on KD and was later changed to a foul on LeBron would NEVER have been overturned on MJ. MJ = G.O.A.T.

RGT: “Everyone else” shows respect for the anthem/flag except the NFL? Really? Look around the stadium while the anthem plays. People playing with their phones, talking to seatmates, taking a swig of beer, heading to the concessions. That the “everyone else” you mean? There is no reason to play the anthem before sporting events. Time to stop it.
