....and you know what they say about Cheney, "Dick him before he dicks you!"
11:33 AM on 11/28/2011
Actually, they said that about Nixon even before Cheney. You must be pretty young.

Dick Nixon!...( before he Dicks you) is how i recall it.

Too many Dicks in power, that's the bottom line.

Why would any college program allow children to travel with coaches without a parent or other guardian? Coaches can be positive influences without taking the kids on the road, with little or no oversight.

Simple rules could have protected the kids, like, no kid is EVER to be alone with a coach, and, kids don't shower or sleep in the same room with coaches.

And why would any parent allow their children to travel without additional chaperones?

I agree with you, but at least in the Sanduskey case, most of these kids were at-risk and likely had little or no parental involvement. Plus, it's the schools that have the deep pockets and will end up paying--and should pay--when their coaches misbehave. Simple rules would have protected the children and decreased the liability.

I believe that this is just the tip of the iceberg. Don't be surprised when more and more young men speak up about their sexual abuses in the locker rooms.
My sincere hope is that their speaking out will stop this sick ring of sexual deviants who prey on the hopes and dreams of our sons.

stats coming out after the news of the Sandusky scandal broke were that ? A disproporonate majority of child molesters are heterosexual men. The status quo would have you believe otherwise

Why won't any of these guys admit they did it?! (first Sanduskey, now Fine...) They automatically and briskly deny it. Guess that must be part of the pathology of their minds. It only supports the argument that the allegations are valid.

their pathologies are influenced by the hypermacho sports machine they are a part of. The average heterosexual person outside of sports would likely assume that child molesters are gay men
11:33 AM on 11/28/2011
Also, the general inclination of those accused of crimes is to deny it. It's not like people that commit all other crimes just up and admit they did it. :)
11:36 AM on 11/28/2011
Well, a denial doesn't actually by itself support the notion that they're guilty, to me at least. If you, or any other innocent person, were accused of such a thing, you'd likely deny it too.

However, how you deny the your guilt does lend support to possible guilt. When Jerry Sandusky was asked by Bob Costas if he was sexually attracted to underage boys his answer was:
"Am I sexually attracted to underage boys?
Sexually attracted, you know, I enjoy young people. I love to be around them. But no I'm not sexually attracted to young boys."

It took him a long time for him to answer a question that could have simply be answered " no ".

I am rather certain he did not become this sick of a person because of his political party. As well, we can be certain he is of no religion.

"Boeheim saw me with Bernie all the time in the hotel rooms, on road trips," Davis said. "He'd come in, and see me laying in the bed, kind of glance at me like, 'What are you doing here?'" But he wouldn't say that. He'd just scowl. And I would look at him like, I'd be nervous. I felt embarrassed 'cause I felt stupid that I'm there. I'm not supposed to be here. I know it, and Boeheim's not stupid."

Ok the coach needs to be fired...he saw a kid lying on this guys bed on the road? Sorry...has to go.

...I'm thinking that Boeheim should be really investigated on this matter.....and maybe let him go as well.

S.U. might have to pull a Paterno on his behind.

Something or someone should have raised a brow when asst coaches Sandusky/Fine have young male children for sleepovers at their home. In my childhood sleepovers didn't involve married adult men only neighborhood kids

Exactly right and head coaches who overlook this sort of thing need to go...they are the leaders of these programs and must be held accountable.

yep. once the dysfuctional network is structured, it can be very difficult for a victim to break away... varient of the Stockholm Syndrome... similar to a battered wife who stays in a violent and abusive relationship.

Judging from the affect and body english of this guy in his interview, he has a long healing journey facing him. I wish him profound luck

Maybe Fine and Sandusky knew each other and their sick behavior. Pedophile's have connections to each other.

Something else is going on here. Not sure how guilty Bernie might be, but am really wondering about his wife. When the audio broke I was wondering how he got her to talk so freely, well if you watch the ESPN interview and listen to more of the phone conversation you find out that she had sex with him, apparently after he turned 18, and he readily admits to that. And why now as the taped phone conversation happened years back, can't be just because of the Penn State growing scandal!!

Danny Schayes put it best, "This is just the start". The school and the cops had this tape in 2002 and 2003 during their investigations and they did nothing with it. Sounds pretty damning to me. This is like Jerry Springer live.
