Syracuse Sex Accusers

Sue University, Head Coach --

We're Not LIARS!!!

12/13/2011 10:30 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

The 2 men behind the Syracuse sex scandal accusations are adamant ... they're not making up stories about ex-coach Bernie Fine molesting them as children -- and now, they're suing the University's head coach for calling them liars.

The alleged victims, 39-year-old Bobby Davis and 45-year-old Mike Lang, announced their lawsuit in a news conference today -- Gloria Allred presiding -- claiming head basketball coach Jim Boeheim destroyed their reputations by publicly calling BS on their stories.

After their ESPN interview aired -- in which Lang and Davis accused ex-Syracuse coach Bernie Fine of abusing them as children -- Boeheim gave several statements to the media ... calling the two "liars" just looking for money, crawling out of the woodwork after the Penn State scandal.

Davis and Lang filed the defamation suit today in N.Y. State Supreme Court -- suing the University alongside its head coach ... for carelessly tarnishing their reputation.

Its TOO LATE boys - you're **** out of luck. And Gloria Allred is dummer than I thought and as the article says, is a media-addicted sorry excuse for a lawyer.

damn they must be hard up for money.. A DA wouldn't prosecute so now they're blaming the school. How money hungry are these people. If someone rapes you, you say something right away. Not so many years later.

Gloria manages to even give lawyers a bad name, which is not easy to do. What an awful semi-human.

They totally discredited themselves by aligning with that witch. She will probably ask for 100 million dollars. They will have to prove that the university knew bout their abuse at the time they were students. Is there anyone still around to corroborate their stories? Is *Already* the only attorney they could find?

Davis and Lang have already widely told their side of the story to the press (through multiple interviews). Why would even TMZ (or any other outlet) give this media whore lawyer extra air time to get her face on TV?!?!?!

The pain on Mike Lang's face is palpable. This is so horrific and I'm proud of them for holding the university accountable. I hope this year marks a turning point in our culture of turning a blind eye to sexual abuse of boys.

Well, that's a great idea, sue the university because you took it in the ass eleventy years ago...and it didn't bother you until you smelled money? If some huge dude in the shower muscled me to the floor and did that to me...I'd be waiting at his house that night with a Louisville Slugger.
