Four items involving groups of men at Duke and the media:
--headline, N&O, 9 April 2006
2.) “The charges track the noisy passage of a championship lacrosse team with a reputation for a swaggering sense of entitlement and privilege.”
--N&O, 9 April 2006
3.) “But they have a reputation for swagger and rowdiness, according to The Chronicle, the student newspaper, which wrote last week, "Players frequently walk around with girls--sometimes called 'lacrosstitutes' by their peers--in tow," and have been known to kick in doors and urinate out windows. History professor Peter Wood, who often has lacrosse players in his course on Native Americans (who invented the game), complained that team members sometimes signed in to class and then walked out, without bothering to sit down.”
--Newsweek, April 2006
How many people believe that Peter Wood will come out of retirement to denounce the “swagger” of Duke students, as reflected in yesterday's Chronicle ad?
