Tom LaMarra (another BH writer who was actually there and at the BH table) also disputed LS's version in the comments immediately after the "show" was up and presented a much more innocuous version. Interestingly enough, as I go back today to pull his version, I see it has been "scrubbed". . . LS has strong opinions (which need to be said at times), but I don't think he always lets the facts get in the way of them.BlindLucky wrote:Lenny Schulman at the Blood-Horse reported in his podcast at the beginning of November (around 4:50 here) that Coburn "and entourage" showed up at a Turf Writers charity dinner without paying anything and sat at a table reserved for a publication that had made a donation. Coburn then refused to move, and didn't pay. It's hard to keep using the excuse that "he's new to the sport, he just doesn't understand, he's just a real guy."Horsebagger wrote:Let's not forget calling the connections of Tonalist 'cowards'. Ignorant people who choose to let their mouths run un-edited about things they don't understand don't get the benefit of the doubt. At least not from me.
Coburn is a piece of work, but I do give him credit for some improvement. The drink sequence was an embarrassment to TVG.
