Regarding the negotiations to keep USC football in the Coliseum, Scott Wolf writes:
USC’s Coliseum negotiations website implores fans to attend today’s commission meeting. It’s part of USC’s public-relations strategy to get the public to express outrage. So far, that ploy’s resulted in death threats against commission member Bill Chadwick and general manager Pat Lynch.
A USC official just shrugged his shoulders at that little byproduct of the negotiations.
Let’s see if I understand the cause and effect here. Encouraging people to attend a committee meeting resulted in death threats?
OK, that’s understandable . . . I hate meetings myself.
