    You stop the outside funding for those crooks by firing those crooks, or providing an ultimatum where the "death penalty" is on the table but can be avoided if PSU gives them the boot. Then it's on PSU itself and to make the decision.

    I hope so too, yet why should all of the future NCAA generated money be used to repay those past victims? Much money that PSU will get is from a pool of MANY other schools, that did NOTHING wrong either. Allowing ANY NCAA sports to fund those victims takes the load off of everyone else at PSU. Let PA and PSU pay the HUGE civil settlements from their past crimes not the entire NCAA.

    They had that opportunity in 1998, and again in 2001 and all of the following years to come clean. They did not take action. This was not three guys, the entire school AND TOWN profitted from that football money for over a decade. Firing a dead guy and two other old farts will NOT make the civil penalties go away from PSU. There is NO reason to have the entire NCAA fund those victims.

    During the SMU Death Penalty period - the NCAA could have just banned the players and all those involved (including the 'boosters') from having anything to do with the football team...but they didn't.
    They gave them the death penalty for infractions much, MUCH smaller then the horrific things that happened at PSU.

    The PSU football team is not curing cancer or fighting al Qaeda...they are just playing football.


    What would these people had to have done/covered up before you people would agree that the Death Penalty is warranted?

    Murder? Mass murder? What?

    Is continual and ongoing child molestation/rape not enough for you all?

    The tragedy happened because a group of people thought a football program was so damned important that they allowed children to be molested. The NCAA death penalty is needed, not for vengeance, but because too many people at Penn state continue to support that attitude by defending Paterno. A clear message needs to be sent that football is just a game and losing a few seasons is nothing compared to the horror suffered by those kids.

    Though it's really more of 'Temporary Coma' penalty (if SMU was any example).
    They got rid of everyone that ****ed up, what more do you want? Maybe you like to beat the kids for a weeks, huh?

    as someone who does not believe in group rights or group sin, no. The penalties should be applied to those involved in abusive or dishonest behavior. The main perpetrator is going to be getting probably a most painful lesson on what happens to child rapists in prison. The head of the program when this happened is dead. Other administrators were fired. Freshman who chose Penn State have no blame. Same with the fans or for that matter any of the current players and certainly not the taxpayers of the state of Pennsylvania.
