I've been off the radar most of the summer with some family stuff.  But just heard that the court granted a motion to add 4 rowers from Women's Crew as named plaintiffs.  Motion outstanding to certify the case as a class action suit.  Did I get bad info? I didn't even know this was out there.

Stories like this just make me want to say screw it.  Cancel athletics altogether.  There is so much political crap today it’s not worth watching.  I’d rather throw my money in the sewer.

Confirmed. Rowers were added. School not denying claims. Just saying they are "time-barred" and that they can't be part of the case because they aren't current or former varsity athletes (aka - claim is that only varsity athletes can file a Title IX suit.)  Not sure how that makes any sense. They're current students and even requested the addition of Women's Crew as I understand.  If someone out there knows how this stuff works better than me, please come to the rescue.

I don't know what this mean, rowers were added meaning crew is now an official sanction sport at UA and this will go in part of wholly to satisfy title IX issues?

Sorry - doing too many things at once here.  Confirmed that rowers were added as plaintiffs to the lawsuit.  School is saying they shouldn't be allowed to sue because they're not already varsity athletes (or were varsity athletes in the case of tennis players).

Wow...this just keeps getting better.

Plus side, maybe (?),  is that at least it's not a separate lawsuit.  But it means that it doesn't go away due to tennis players graduating.
