Oh no!  Someone might associate the perfectly safe NFL with a dangerous, concussion filled sport like UFC!  The horror!

@Dez E. @axhfan We all know the answer?  We don't know anything. Sure, he was told not to talk about it, but unless someone asks, he can't choose to not address it.  Other hard-hitting interviews have nothing to do with it.  If this is the first time she stood up and became a journalist, I applaud her.

 No, they ARE journalists, and this is news.  Not TMZ "news", but hard news.  Color commentators can be an exception as they were supposed to be experts you defer to, like an interviewee on a news program, but play-by-play and sideline reporter was and should always be a journalism post.

 @martind1 Yea, my bad, forgot about Texas, and I should have said LA instead of just the Lakers.

Actually the one from Jerry Rice is a violation.  Jerry Rice played for the 49ers and the Raiders and he has a picture showing him in a 49ers uniform.  As you must be aware, ESPN does not recognize any sports teams that play west of the Mississippi unless they are the Lakers.

 @leftydana  This is exactly right.  They covered up the scandal to protect the program.  They allowed more boys to be victimized to protect the program.  The only thing they valued in this situation was the program, so the only effective punishment is to punish the program.

 

The NCAA felt they had a power to discourage programs from covering-up such crimes in the future.  Had Paterno and others done the right thing in the first place, had it been an isolated incident, instead of an institutional issue, then the NCAA should have stayed out of it.

 

Now, if any other program thinks it is appropriate to cover up a crime to protect their program, they put it at greater risk, than if they deal with it immediately.
