John "Goon" Chaney To Return For NIT,

In late February, WILLisms.com commented [here and here] on Goongate (we also claim credit for the first use of the now ubiquitous term "Goon-gate").

Essentially, to recap:

Chaney sent in a "goon" (his own term) to put a hit on the St. Joe's sixth man. That player broke his arm. St. Joe's, a number one NCAA tournament seed in 2004, was a bubble team for the NCAA at the time of the incident. As we said at the time of the incident, they needed to win the Atlantic 10 to guarantee themselves an NCAA bid. Losing their sixth man, St. Joe's was unable to get into the NCAA and now will play in the same NIT in which Temple will play.


Now, Chaney will coach the Temple Owls in the NIT against Virginia Tech Tuesday, March 15, 2005.

What a travesty. What an embarrassment to the city of Philadelphia, to Temple University, and to the NCAA. Chaney should have been fired immediately, not suspended for a few games.

[To keep it politically-related: Incidentally, Chaney made tacky, ill-timed and ill-informed anti-Bush comments in recent months.]

Coach CHenny should be thankful he didn't do that to my child. What a GOON is right. Is that what we call a poor sport? I think so! Talk about LAME... He is the lamest goon head I have ran across since ARAFAT!
They were probably good friends.

Coach Chaney should be very thankful he didn't do that to my child! I believe he is what we call a spoiled sport. Talk about LAME! THAT GOONHEAD IS THE LAMEST... What a creep.

What will ever become of Chaney? Will he become part of a cartel,street gang or become some kind of a Mob Boss?

Actually he will probably get some kind of a book or movie deal and become super duper wealthy and have bodyguards and Goons to be at his beckon call.

We just can't help ourselves! we Americans love this kind of stuff!

What a goonhead is right! I am so sure! I can't believe how discusting that is to send someone to break an arm so he could win a game! That really ruins his record and career! BYE! BYE! COACH CHANEY!

I sure do like this pictue of Coach Goon Chaney. He looks rather surprised and a bit guilty about something. hmm? What might he be guilty of? Why hasn't he been fired? It is kind of like the Bill Clinton syndrome. He got caught but doesn't feel the need to resign!
