Monday Whispers: How To Alienate Boosters?
How does Lynn Swann anger boosters?
Let me count the ways courtesy of some big donors:
He reportedly kicked a woman out of his Coliseum suite one game only to discover later she was on the Board of Trustees.
He told one mega-donor he would remove his name off a building if he did not keep giving money to the athletic dept.
He kicked one of USC’s most famous players off the field.
He kicked another donor out of his suite. Later, the donor told an athletic dept. employee he wanted an apology. “That’s not going to happen,” the employee said.
There are even more stories than this but these illustrate why some people cannot stand Swann. And he doesn’t sign autographs!
