    I just received this tweet:

    In case the link in the tweet does not work, take a look at the picture:

    If the players did this, they will catch some grief. If someone associated with the program did this, they might lose their job.

    I wondered too? I don't play around with photos, but could that picture have been photo shopped?

    I went to a Duke board and the claim is something about a gun demo at West Point. Maybe, but at a PC school like Duke, this may still cause some problems.

    Hard to say why anyone thought this was a good idea.

    Shopped or not? Looks worked on at first glance.

    Not shopped. Unless they were already holding something the approximate size and shape of those ARs.

    Are we sure that's not the lacrosse team getting ready for at party at the DA's house?

    Definitely not fake. There were other pictures of their day that went along with this one. They're fake guns with some sort of compressed air thing hooked up to them supposedly.

    Honestly, I'm sure it was a fun day for them and there's nothing wrong with it. I'm just surprised someone wasn't against photos like that getting out considering the times.

    Yeah, I too have no problem with them and this picture. But then I am not the powers that be at Duke who I suspect are not as open minded as I am. I posted it because I wondered how much controversy this picture would stir up.

    I am just glad it was the do no wrong Duke team instead of one of those evil SEC schools where we cling to our guns and religion.

    I rarely agree with BEH but this picture (explanation or not) would be getting negative comments all over the media if were any team but Duke and the media would be having a field day. That said I think the picture is revolting and Never should have been posted.

    Who can blame them? Ever been to Durham at night? My little girl had back surgery at Duke...I was scared to walk across the street.

    If they are holding legal guns and are not forbidden to possess a firearm, then what is the problem? OMG call the PC police. Not saying I would like the firestorm of all the negative press from UF doing it and if I were the person making the decision, I would not allow MY team to take that photo. But it is a major non-issue to me. Not offended in the least by it.
