Letter to the editor | Judge’s ruling flawed

June 27, 2013 

A federal judge dismissed a suit brought by Pennsylvania against the NCAA, ruling that the suit was a “hail Mary pass” and not worthy of being heard.

This ruling was based on emotional grounds and not on facts.

The primary fact is that the heavy sanctions placed on Penn State’s football program were not warranted by crimes related to the program, i.e., punishment should fit the crime.

It would be just as appropriate to sanction Penn State’s table tennis program.

And the uproar on the sanctions voiced by our state politicians has been underwhelming.
