Art Chansky Fired, Condemns Davis In Letter

28 posts in this topic

I find this hilarious. During a project last year, we had to find a speaker for an event our class was organizing, and this guy in my group suggested Art Chansky. I had no idea who this clown was, but everyone was talking about some book he wrote about Carolina basketball and he was a "it" person around UNC, so he'd be great to have as an MC.

I just kind of felt like, what makes that guy special? Who gives a f, I don't know who he is... And that exact reason they were blowing him up is why he got fired. Another example of a overhyped, over-encouraged homer gaining a little recognition and then acting on it. He's a nobody that got treated like a somebody and then got too big for his pants and offers his suggestions to the CHANCELLOR of what he should do. I can't stand people like this.

Thorp's email back to him should've been like, "BITCH!!! WHO DO YOU THINK YOU ARE?!?! DO YOU REMEMBER WHO YOU ARE? NO, WHO YOU REALLY ARE... YOU WRITE BOOKS. YOU WISH YOU WERE ATHLETIC. YOU ARE A GROUPIE. OH, AND YOU'RE FIRED. K THX BYE."

And they fired him right before our winter break, lolz... Must've not felt like dealing with that after the break.

I can't believe this. Art Chansky has been around forever. He used to even be the Sports Editor for the Durham Morning Herald when I was a kid.

You're a sad, angry man.

So this is all you have left? No attempt to protect Davis or your Tar Heels. I guess it really has sunk in that the worst is coming...

Try to enjoy basketball Carolina fans because football is going to be bad next year. Or good...if you don't like Davis.

What's to protect? Somebody sent an e-mail with an opinion, something that happens a million times a day. Butch Davis is going to be at Carolina for years to come, so you should just face reality.

Carolina football will be just fine, because we have Butch Davis. Really don't you have anybody else to hate? You know like satan, the grinch or a Pirate for God's sake. Have you ever said anything positive about UNC...hell no it's all hate. Most people post something positive about a rival or another team, not you. It's all hatred towards one team, Carolina.

Your threads and posts always contain; "See, this is the proof", "Butch knew about this" or "Bruce Carter isn't that good". I feel sorry for you and I hope santa brings you a "I support Butch" t-shirt for Christmas or at least an open mind.

I say good things about their basketball program all the time. There is nothing good to say about the football program. Its made up of a bunch of liars, cheaters, and thugs that most of the boosters want out of there. The only way that Butch Davis is in Chapel Hill next year is if the investigation still hasn't been finished. Once the investigation is over and sanctions are put into place, Davis will be gone. If Pete Carroll can't survive at USC then what in the name of St. Nicholas makes you think that Butch Davis is going to survive something way worse at North Carolina? Its a second tier sport in Chapel Hill and always will be. The boosters aren't going to risk the entire athletic department because of one rogue coach.

Believe it or not the bloggers at IC and CarolinaBlue don't run Chapel Hill. Most of the money behind that program probably has no clue what Scout.com is. So take what those writers have to say with a grain of salt. Unless its about recruiting...they are sugar coating it for subscribers.

He's a UNC Alum. Most on here have nothing in common with him. The UNC Alumni I know wish Butchie would resign. He is giving a horrible reputation to the university. Is it really all that surprising that the Walmart UNC fans aren't concerned about that.

then you hate at least 850 other people you don't even know - because that's how many people have sent emails to the chancellor about this.

some for - some against davis. chansky's was neither - he simply made a suggestion of some resources that could help if a new coach was needed. it was a good suggestion too.

your classmates also made a good suggestion about bringing chansky in as a speaker. Not because of his recent book or all the ones before it. But because he is an expert with tons of really good stories to tell.

Well he has time to tell his stories, sending an email is a cowards approach to speak their mind.

Great... My point was, I didn't care for him because he's another one of these "legends" that these unathletic wannabe's have a dubbed a "who's who" around UNC. IDGAF what's he's done... He essentially capitalizes off the success of others by writing books about things he wishes he could do. I don't care about his stories. I can't stand the arrogant, sweater vest wearing, out of touch yuppies that Chansky represents... I see them everyday on campus walking around just hoping to be a part of Carolina's Tradition, so they snoop around and try to find a way to capitalize off that tradition. When in reality most of them are nobodies. They're leeches and that culture disgusts me... They pimp out the program, the school, and "tradition," to try and put themselves in a position of power. So no, that doesn't apply to the 850 people that also sent emails... Just the fake one's with inflated egos like Chansky. He should've known his role.

I don't care what happens with Butch Davis. I think he's a good guy overall, but I really doubt he didn't know what was going on. But, honestly, I don't care. As a former athlete, though not on that level, and being friends with athletes who have been on that level, they should get paid. The NCAA is a joke. So, really whatever is going to happen is going to happen. Sorry to the yuppie crowd, but it's a new generation, guys are going to get paid when everyone knows THEY ARE GOING TO GET PAID. I don't wish Davis to be fired, nor do I necessarily support him, I just think Chansky got what he deserved because it wasn't his place to tell our CHANCELLOR what to do about his coaching situation. HE IS THE CHANCELLOR, he acquired that position for a reason, and it wasn't writing books and getting people to pump him up like Chansky did.

Let him tell that story.

Proudiddy, you sound like a 20 year-old with no respect for people from older generations. Believe it or not, Mr. What Have You Done For Me Lately, Chansky has been an authoritative and knowledgable local sports expert for almost 40 years. Get a clue.
