Maybe they should change his nickname to Shifty because he certainly seems to be involved in a lot of scandals involving tax evasion.

So, SbB came back into being to be some sort of investigative reporting tool?

Interesting.

Phil seems to epitomize everything we hate about rich white guys, yet everyone still loves him.

Isn't there a commercial he does for arthritis, with his "daughter?"

Everyone will ask how she got into college.


Acting!

Well, if you couldn't get you fit daughter into college you could at least get her into SbB.

He doesn't deny any of it.

I remember when SbB was a boob site.

Well they did do an article about Phil Mickelson, so...

I remember when Fark was a boob site.

Come to think of it, in my early 20's all I ever read was boob sites...

I guess they pivoted from boobs to moobs?

/I guess Phil's alma mater isn't "good enough" for his daughter?

Yeah.  I know hes an assole but i root for him anyway.  I honestly dont know why.  Perhaps because hes so bubbly and likable on the course you ignore all the awful things about him

"We are shocked by the revelations of these events."

Translation:  We paid a fixer, to "guide" us to the process, and we are shocked that he did so!

Yeah ASU is an alright school... if you have a son going there.

Daddy may not like his little girl going there... Because he went there and recalls the culture.

Everyone I know who has actually met him can't freaking stand him. I don't like him because he's an ASU guy and I'm contractually obligated to despise him.

My dad likes him (hasn't met him) because he always roots for southpaws.

I know I don't want my kids going to the shiat school I went to.

I thought SbB was dead. I remember when they would sometimes comprise half the Sports tab's links in a given day.

Same with Wampler and the Entertainment tab.

Where does it say Phil was involved in illegal activity? There are plenty of legal ways rich people can be 'guided' through the application process; unfair, but not necessarily illegal.

I sure don't. I've always thought of him as a real prick.

JerseyTim: Here's the time I insisted the "b" in the (old) SbB logo was a backwards "d".


How ridiculous.

That is CLEARLY an upside-down "p".

Wasn't that Brooks guy missing for several years?

They love him 'cuz they hate Tiger...who is also a rich white guy who just happens to have African and Asian genes in him.

I remember when we had those here, too.

Lotta member berries in this thread.

Anyway, I'm no fan of Phil, but he was smart to get out in front of the story before being questioned about it.  The "my daughter would kick our ass and sketch unflattering pictures of me if we cheated" was a nice touch too.
