The players had no reason not to attend the interrogation. I can't see why they would have cancelled it, justdropit.
It pretty much had to be an attorney's idea, and supposedly the players had no representation of their own yet.

If a Duke attorney in fact counseled the players to not speak without representation, it's the first good thing I've heard the University do for its students.

Well, they would have been bailing on the players, imo.

Distancing themselves from defending them.

You may be right--I have no clue as to Duke's motivation.  In retrospect, regardless of its intent, Duke did the players a favor.  Nifong was going to indict three regardless of evidence, it was in their interest not to speak to him without attorneys present.

Did the players agree to the meeting or not?  Did they agree to not show up at the meeting or not. These are not children. They are all adults.  They can consider advice from their coach, their parents and assorted attorneys, no matter who is paying the bill, but  if they agreed to the meeting and they decided to not show up for the meeting, the buck stops there.

Okay, now we know there was no rape so the pot bangers want to place all the blame on the students for this injustice. I will await the civil suits and finacial rewards granted to show any remaining idiots how wrong Nifong and the DPD were in not conducting a normal investigation. It is fair to say that any unbiased individual knows that Durham county, due to the conduct of its elected official, will be held responsible for this farce.

Due to the envious nature and jeliousy of the pot bangers they have once again placed the alpha males back in the hearts of 98% of Americans. I guess us rich white males will continue to dominate and we can think the pot bangers for hoisting us back into the good graces of America.

Thanks Pot Bangers we could not have reigned much longer with out you.

Trinity Rez and others, please find another word besides pot-bangers that is less insulting.  Try, "those that support the accuser" or something like that.

I keep reading about this meeting that was cancelled which seems to be the main evidence of a "wall of silence".  Does anybody have a link that shows who originally scheduled the meeting and who authorized it to be scheduled?  Is there a link that shows the players ever agreed to any such meeting?

Okay.

People banged pots in support of a known liar.I can not help it if they look foolish and turn the phrase "pot bangers" into a derogatory term. So much for the societal good they were trying to accomplish.

How about "Cast raters" as in cast of characters?
