Al Michaels and Howard Stern discussed the extremely delicate Penn State situation on Monday's show. In true Stern fashion, he does not tiptoe around the outrage and disgust he feels about those who were allegedly responsible and covered up the unfathomable scandal that has rocked sports in the last week. The majority of Stern's venom is directed at Mike McQueary, the man who saw one of the alleged sexual assualts take place. His inaction has been severely questioned although he believes he did take appropriate action.
Unfortunately, Michaels brings up a depressing point. It's apparent that many were aware of the unimaginable accusations against one of the most prominent public figures at Penn State for as long as a decade and simply hoped it would never be discovered. Because of this, many kids were directly put in harms way because he was still allowed to be apart of his foundation and make use of the facilities at Penn State. It's sad, but it's looking likely that we haven't reached rock bottom yet.
This is the first, and perhaps the last time a Saturday Night LIVE clip will be featured and recommended here, but their approach towards the Penn State situation was absolutely brilliant. Yes, it was uncomfortable, will probably make you cringe, but frankly that was their goal. Even touching this topic in this forum is bold [...]
The world around Penn State and former coach Jerry Sandusky is crumbling at a rapid rate. Sandusky was interviewed last night by Bob Costas on NBC and it sure didn't help his cause in my opinion.Sandusky is not the world's greatest speaker in the first place, so the entire interview sounded like one big lie. In addition to his all over the place answers, Sandusky's...
Both EPSN, The Worldwide Leader In Sports and Penn State football, is feeling the effects of the Penn State sex scandal, which got former Head Coach Joe Paterno FIRED last week, and also has gotten high members of the University of Penn State looking a criminal chargers, along with possible lawsuit from the rape victims of Jerry Sandusky, a former assistant coach for Peterno who...
MSNBC.com reports: Former Penn State coach Jerry Sandusky said in an interview with NBC's Bob Costas for NBC News' Rock Center show that airs Monday evening that he's not a pedophile. But the ex-coach does admit he horsed around with young boys in the shower.
Additional layers were added to the Jerry Sandusky child-sex abuse scandal at Penn State recently with a pair of Mike McQueary emails surfacing Monday and Tuesday. In the first email, sent to friends and former teammates, the in-limbo Nittany Lions assistant insisted that he “didn’t just turn and run” after allegedly witnessing Sandusky sodomizing a 10-year-old…
A police chief says his department didn't receive reports from a Penn State graduate assistant who testified to a grand jury that he saw a former defensive coordinator raping a boy in the team showers in 2002. State College police Chief Tom King says Mike McQueary didn't make a report to his department about Jerry Sandusky.
According to the grand jury report, Penn State athletic director Tim Curley "testified that he informed Dr. Jack Raykowvitz, Executive Director of The Second Mile of the conduct reported to him..." That conversation took place nine years ago. The Second Mile will now be represented by a law firm that counts former Philly DA Lynne Abraham...
