McBride should have gotten his suspension’s worth


I understand we all have to give up certain freedoms to stay employed.

A journalist, for example, can't yell "fire" in a crowded newsroom and expect to have a job in the morning. Or put up a blog posting about his boss' penchant for wearing a certain type of fowl slippers.

And college coaches can't say a bad word about officials. Or even innocuous ones, like Weber State's Ron McBride did last week.

Reading Dave Trimmer's Big Sky notebook on McBride's comments after his Wildcats' loss to Montana State, it's hard to believe he would be suspended for what he said. But he was.

So this Saturday, when Weber hosts Eastern, McBride won't have his play sheet in front of his face or his headphones on. He'll be on the conference's equivalent of double-secret probation.

As always, Dave has more on his blog.
