Weekend Hot Reads....

Former Rutgers Univ. basketball coach Mike Rice is featured in the cover story of this week's N.Y. TIMES MAGAZINE. Jonathan Miller writes, "On some level, Rice knew that his behavior was a problem ... In these fleeting moments Rice was capable of seeing himself as thousands, and eventually millions, of people would see him. And yet he couldn't, or wouldn't, get far enough outside himself long enough to recognize the need to change." 

In light of the NFL's bullying scandal, THE MMQB's Peter King examined the issue of race in the league. King: "How did it become okay for a black player to be the subject of even one instance of hate speech in one locker room, while, from what I could gather, it was unthinkable in eight other organizations?"

Also addressing the ongoing bullying scandal in the NFL, the L.A. TIMES' Sandy Banks writes under the header, "Calling Bullying 'Bonding' Doesn't Make It OK." The N.Y. TIMES' William Rhoden: "Civility Need Not Be Excluded From The Culture Of The NFL."
