Gonzaga fans ‘amusing’

The Spokesman-Review

Certainly, it is a continuing amusement to many sports readers learning Gonzaga basketball fans are upset about limited access to the games. Not enough seats. Expensive tickets. Cable television costs money, and many cannot afford the extra cost for ESPNU.

Indeed, it is delightful having our local KHQ televise some games, but I am disappointed they are not captioned. It is a clear violation of the American Disability Act in which the hearing-impaired are not given equal access to information during games.

No wonder both KHQ and Gonzaga are encouraged to put aside their profits to make enjoyment of watching the games possible for those disadvantaged fans. No wonder this is greed, the new name of the game as Allan LeTourneau wrote in a Jan. 6 letter to The Spokesman-Review, “GU ‘sells out’ to greed.”
