Iaconelli's Apology: After his second disqualification at the Classic, Ike says he's sorry
By Dave Hurteau & Chad Love
Yesterday, we ran a link detailing Mike Iaconelli's disqualification from the 2006 Citgo Bassmaster Classic for breaking BASS sportsmanship rules. In the heat of the moment, Ike claimed he was being "targeted" and "sabotaged" (see Link). But since then, he has issued an apology: "I want to publicly apologize to anyone I have offended by my recent actions during the 2006 Bassmaster Classic. As you know, I am a very passionate person. Sometimes my emotions get the best of me and that is exactly what happened."
