Sports News Without Access, Favor, Or Discretion

The task force report released earlier this week about the Boston University ice hockey team's "culture of sexual entitlement" withheld the finding's explicit details from the public. The Boston Globe has obtained those details, which were based on testimonials from players, students, and others, and they're a doozy:

In the documents, which were obtained by the Globe on Thursday, were tales of a late-night 2009 NCAA championship party at Agganis Arena where dozens of guests drank from kegs in the locker room showers and took to the ice naked to shoot pucks.

"It was insane," one former student who attended told the BU task force. "People were having sex in the penalty box."

One player came close to admitting that. "You don't ask [permission for sex] when you are drunk," he told the task force, adding that he did not see how the actions of the two players charged last year constituted sexual assault.

Another player used two slurs to describe women who "hook up with multiple guys," then wondered, "What other word for them is there?"

There's more, including one female student's explanation for why she didn't report an incident in which the Globe says one player "shoved his hands down her pants at a party and refused to stop even as she was punching him." Yeesh. You can read the Globe's entire story here.
