The above post is not subject to penalty under the TOS I declare the Hayden Fox defense. " It is impossible for the staff to know my context therefore I cannot be penalized"
The ethics bylaws don't really deal with coverups of criminal investigations. Of course it says "not limited to" but generally deals with improper financial aid, falsifying grades and so on. Not the covering up of a crime by a coach (and other school executives) of a coach.
The key for me is that the coverup seems to have provided a competitive advantage for Penn State but it's not an argument I really see being advanced and I'm curious as to why.
Really puts into perspective how much of a hypocrite piece of **** Paterno was. Gotta love how Paterno was seriously considering leaving Penn State to save Miami from the Pell Grant scandal but decided a holier-than-thou Penn State guy like him taking over Miami is just throwing salt into the wound.
But you are not advancing arguments, you are merely stating feelings. A perfectly relevant part of the discussion, but it doesn't answer my particular question.
Bill Belichick on "putting the tape on"
They clearly broke (4) at least.
There's nothing ethical about covering up child rape. A cover up which as you said, theoretically game them a competitive advantage. The NCAA can do whatever they want. The Board of Directors gave Emmert permission to go against the usual precedent because this is an unprecedented case, and that's exactly what happened. Nobody is going to challenge the NCAA on it, nor should they.
He wouldn't have recruited the same players that we did back then. He would have been terrified to knock on doors in Overtown and Liberty City and would have died much earlier in his life trying to walk those streets.
Although the child rapes probably wouldn't have happened even if Sandusky came with him. Kids back then were armed at that age.
LOL @ Penn State was on the opposite end of the spectrum. That's what we thought. Looks like Paterno was an old school troll. Fooled everyone.
Doesn't look like Al Golden will be riding into Happy Valley to save that program though.
Isn't happy another word for gay?
