    Valeri Liukin out at USAG. Essentially an extension of the Karolyis - notorious for psychological abuse of his students, including his daughter.

    Another positive move. Throw em all out.

    Not as abhorrent as that cesspool of a human being Nassar, but the Dallas Mavericks' rotten corporate culture of harassment is terrifying. Mark Cuban, the progressive hands on owner, claims to not know about it (I have my doubts). And, moreover, I have a certainty about me that the Mavericks are one of about ... I don't know ... 122 teams in the "big four" leagues that have a similar culture to some degree where women work in fear and are constantly harassed. The terrifying thing is that a culture that allows a powerful man to tell women he knows they are going to be gangbanged over the weekend is probably not the worst environment being cultivated by a major sports franchise right now.

    In today's climate, you can't "cannot know." And yeah, Cuban as a hands on owner, should have known especially since Terdema Ussery is the Mavericks team president and CEO. It's very doubtful to me that Cuban wouldn't know this guy was a sexual creepy and a predator. Moreover, this guys been acting this way for years and at social events.

    We already know the Knicks have been like that given Anucha Brown Sanders's lawsuit against Isiah Thomas in particular and the Knicks as a whole.

    Piece on Marta Karolyi in the Dallas Morning News today, including interview footage. It's a doozy!

    Regarding alleged physical, sexual, and other abuse that took place on her property:
    When asked who may have been responsible for this aforementioned "other parts"/security, again on her property:
    Regarding the living arrangements:

    Dateline NBC, 7 PM Sunday - hour devoted to the investigation, interview with Karolyis and (separately) Maroney.

    Already being leaked out that the Karolyis are denying any knowledge of Nassar's assault.
