Hey, I just found a new synonym for “abuse of power.” It’s spelled W-I-L-L-I-A-M-S. As in Roy Williams, head coach of the men’s basketball team at North Carolina, and your newly-minted Douchebag of the Week.
If you’re wondering why such a revered and highly-respected coach such as Roy Williams is the subject of my wrath, well, I’ll tell you.
During North Carolina’s blowout win over Presbyterian, Williams had a “heckler” removed by security, with just about six minutes left to say.
What did said heckler yell to rile up Williams to the point of having him ejected?
“Don’t miss, Deon.”
Yes, that’s it.
Williams claims that the heckler was intoxicated, and hurling insults the entire game. Obviously, the person in question denies the allegations.
And to all you Roy Williams apologists out there–yes, I understand that buying a ticket does not give you the right to do what ever you feel like, and act like a retarded monkey. That being said, it’s a sporting event for shit’s sake–does Roy “Fucktard” Williams expect you to sit there on your hands and say nothing.
No, as long as it’s nothing disparaging about his beloved Tar Heels, then holler away.
It’s too bad William’s had to pull this stunt–in my opinion he’s gone from classy, respected, top-notch coach, to smug, ignorant, power-mad douchebag in the span of two minutes. And while North Carolina has done nothing to penalize Williams for his act of douchebaggery, at least the media, both real and bloggers alike, have taken the UNC coach to task for his apparent lack of class.
Just imagine the reaction if Mike Krzyzewski had pulled this stunt instead of Roy Williams.
