Sexist 'scouting report' ends Harvard men's soccer season - CNN.com

Harvard University canceled the remainder of the 2016 men's soccer season following an investigation into reports of a custom of ranking woman's soccer players' physical attributes in the lewdest of terms, university officials said.
The "scouting report" evaluated freshmen women soccer players on their looks and sex appeal with numerical scores and offensive descriptions, according to a Harvard Crimson report about the discovery of such a document from 2012.
I am fairly sure that Facebook started as a Harvard Hot or Not site?

even more impressive, Harvard was leading the Ivy League at 4-0-1
It will still take awhile for people to come around to the 'don't be ********' position, but we're off to an ok start

Obviously a collection of the best and the brightest, good old Harvard.

But I would have thought a much better penalty would have been 100 hours of community service, on campus, wearing their uniforms.

Public humiliation is a pretty good teacher.

But, as usual, in a classic bit of large organization CYA, they just blew up the whole thing.

I mean, it's not like they deflated a bunch of footballs or anything.

that works if you're interested in teaching just them a lesson - this penalty puts everyone across campus on notice

I don't really feel bad for them. Nothing says Beta Male quite like "Soccer Guys Keeping A Spreadsheet of Girls They Can't Get Have."

I'll go George Costanza here... Was that wrong?

What exactly went into this list or "scouting report" that went too far? The fact it was documented vs just said? Are we not allowed to talk about sex or attraction? Was it that it was too hurtful to a few (or most?).

I have not read the article but what if this was done by one or two players? Was the entire team actually involved? This really sucks for the guys that may not have had anything to do with this. I'm not saying it wasn't a dumb idea but punishing the entire team seems a bit much. I really feel sorry for the seniors.

So, will anyone that is the member of a collegiate athletics program be kicked off the team for visiting a strip club?
