    Why is the Penn State football program being given the "Death Penalty" on Meet the Press??

    The football coaches and players had zero to do with a child molester's actions. Why the hell should the MSM be whining for the NCAA to punish the $75,000,000 a year PSU football program? How the hell is that any business of the MSM? Why don't they hunt down NAMBLA members?

    Lets vote on a few things...

    Sandusky was a coach. Paterno was a coach. THEY AND THE TOP ADMINISTRATION DID NOT GIVE A DAMN, THEY SIMPLY ALLOWED THOSE ACTIONS TO TAKE PLACE. (what could be more reprehensible than that?)

    It would be unreasonable to think that some players, over the years, did not know the score.

    If the players are good enough they can transfer elsewhere until Penn state regains some credibility.

    MSM is "Main Stream Media", like the Meet the Press show, and other TV shows that have zero to do with the football season. They are not "Evangelicals" or censors enforcing Traditional American Values on the country. The MSM opposes traditional values more than they promote them.

    Case in point, the MSM like the "my two dads" type of show as opposed to "Ozzie & Harriet".

    No one "allowed" any actions to take place. The PSU Board will take any actions needed to preclude any gay coaches from being on campus ever again. The PSU football program is as clean as can be, it should not be punished, which would only punish the players, and fans. Not to mention the $75,000,000 in annual income that the school needs desperately, which would punish everyone. Would you like to see all female sports cancelled indefinitely?

    The NCAA should absolutely give Penn State the death penalty, for at least one season, but two would be better. And allow the players to transfer to other schools without losing any eligibility.

    all were fired , Sandusky is in prison for life, Paterno is dead, and the others are facing charges both civil and criminal. Who do you want to punish?

    You don't say why the innocent should be punished.

    Just think about the unintended consequences of losing $75,000,000 a year on the school, such as
    cancellation of most sports programs. say all women's programs, like their championship volleyball program, many coaches will be put on leave
    cancellation of many school funded research programs and activities
    punishment of many low income scholarship recipients
    the raising of tuition and fees on students, which means more student loans

    All in all, punishing the school is a horrible idea, I hope the Board fights like hell for the innocent students.

    Actions have consequences, personal responsibility and all that stuff conservatives are always babbling about.

    To me being fired is a slap on the wrist. Paterno wasn't punished he simply died. I want to send a message to the administration that such actions in the future will entail a very real financial penalty to the institution. Maybe that will make them do their job.

    Firing as punishment for this crime? Give me a break!
