College Park graduates get an earful

May 21, 2011

NFL union leader DeMaurice Smith apparently didn't read about the Mount Royal Tavern "Cuss Bucket," in your recent article ("Time for a little gosh-darned civility," May 17) since he told University of Maryland graduates, "For anyone who believes passion is cheap and futile I have two words for you: You suck" ("Sports takes the stage at College Park graduation," May 20).

What a cheap, futile and ugly way to express an opinion.

I recommend Mr. Smith consider dropping a couple of dollars into the University's cuss bucket or any of the sports programs that could use some funds. About $1,000 and an apology should make amends for his disgusting comment.
