Penn State penalty unfair, but the right thing

The actions of the NCAA were appropriate - for the old Soviet Union, in two ways. The past is unpredictable, and the rulers can rewrite it at will. However the contest is played on the field, the aparatchiks in offices can determine the outcome later. Punish everyone, to send a message. Feliks Dzerzhinsky would understand and agree with you.

Actually it could also be called poetic justice. Joe Paterno cared so much about his image and setting an all time wins record that he was willing to over look or coverage children being raped in his locker room by his long time assistant coach. In the end, the wins and his record were taken away by the granting authority.
He probably has a record for most wins vacated and probably for having more children were raped in his locker room than all other college football locker rooms combined.

What part is not true?

More children raped in Joe Parterno's lokcer room than all others combined?
More wins vacated than any other coach?
Jerry Sandusky commiting multiple child rapes in Joe Paterno's locker room?
Joe Paterno worrying about his image more than doing the right thing?
Joe Paterno not wanting to disturb anyone's week end?

USA: there are at least two more people facing charges, civil suits likely, a Federal Investigation and Jerry Sandusky has not talked. With that in mind and th fact that Joe Parterno is dead and can no longer have any one fired, a lot more unpleasant facts about Joe Paterno and his cult like grip may come out. Do you think any one will protect Joe any longer if it keeps them out of jail?

Every parent worth his or her salt at one time or another has done what the NCAA did this week when sanctioning Penn State University.

Confronted with the misdeeds of our children, we parents often are forced to act in a manner that quickly and emphatically sends a message: Your actions have consequences, not only for yourself, but also for those whom you selfishly neglected to consider.

The goal is to teach an invaluable life lesson: Innocent people are hurt by your selfish actions. That’s what makes them selfish. That’s what makes them wrong.

This week, the NCAA said as much...
