This is a toughie.
I have followed the whole sordid Sandusky mess. It's awful, it's putrid and it's sad. Disgusting, revolting, and all nothing to do with sports. Sure, it involves Penn State. A once-revered coach who's dead now and apparently looked the other way.
I'm not sure this awful cover-up can be fully dealt with in a forum like sports-talk radio. That's not a knock on sports radio hosts. As a matter of fact, I commend Damon Bruce for his dogged coverage and attempts to talk about this and provide a forum for callers. I'm not sure what else can be said. One thing is for sure. It puts sports into perspective. Most especially, college sports, where exists a lot of powerful people. I'm not suggesting in any way that creeps like Sandusky and his enablers only exist in college sports.
These monsters exist in all walks of life. It's just a topic and epic that happens to involve a college coach and forever, however unjustly, permanently scars the Penn State University. That may be unfair to a lot of students who had nothing to do with this horrible affair, but that's another story altogether.
This is a horrible event. I commend Ray Woodson on KNBR who gave a very thoughtful summation of this terrible story. It was pointed, perfectly apt and done with the utmost care, ditto Damon Bruce.
