SocialTwist Tell-a-Friend

IC cops discouraging visitors

On Sept. 3, my wife and I set out for a fun day to watch the Iowa Hawkeyes play Tennessee Tech.

After parking in the west lot we set out to meet up with some family members that were a short distance up Melrose Avenue.

After leaving the parking lot and stepping onto the bridge, I was met by a Iowa City police officer who was out for nothing more than to write tickets for open containers. The tickets where already made out so that all that had to be added was the personal information.

I am 53 years old and was there for nothing more than to have a nice relaxing day watching the Hawks play. If they do not want fans coming into town to spend money at local establishments, tell them to keep doing what they’re doing.

I know they lost two customers that day.

Rhabdo trainers should be punished

I was appalled that University of Iowa trainers would inflict an extremely painful and dangerous condition like rhabdomyolysis on their athletes. Can you claim that such workouts are effective when muscle fibers are destroyed and enter the bloodstream in liquid form?

Whoever ordered such training should be fired, and the athletes should consider a lawsuit to ensure that trainers don’t indulge themselves in such sadistic “workouts” in the future without penalty.
