If Corbett wins (and by win I mean a decree is entered saying the sanctions are overturned AND the NCAA has no authority to punish PSU) PSU better buy about 70 tons of lube for the assraping the B1G will give them.

The RCMB...is one of the most awful, alarming, inappropriate, disgusting, and offensive msg boards in the history of the internet.
The NCAA response:
“We are disappointed by the Governor's action today. Not only does this forthcoming lawsuit appear to be without merit, it is an affront to all of the victims in this tragedy - lives that were destroyed by the criminal actions of Jerry Sandusky. While the innocence that was stolen can never be restored, Penn State has accepted the consequences for its role and the role of its employees and is moving forward. Today's announcement by the Governor is a setback to the University's efforts.”
Penn State Decision
Translation: Don't listen to that idiot claiming he's with us. He's not.
It is not taxpayer money. The state has no dog in this fight. The money comes from the athletic department.
At first I thought this is about the money now I think it about politics. Corbett was the Attorney General when the Sandusky investigation was started. Some, mostly democrats, including the newly elected Attorney General are questioning how long the investigation took. Others are upset about Corbett' role in accepting the sanctions.
Corbett is claiming that by damaging Penn State football The NCAA is harming the Pennsylvania economy. Also he is claiming that you really can not separate the various revenues coming in to Penn State and one of those revenue streams are the tax dollars that the commonwealth gives to Penn State. This is how he is claiming standing.
It still may be that they are going for much more that they expect to get as a negotiating ploy.
The NCAA decided it needed to look tough on the Sandusky case because it had fumbled so many other disciplinary cases against athletic programs of its member schools, Corbett claims.
The Jerry Sandusky scandal has been a political liability for Gov. Tom Corbett. Suing the NCAA might help that, political scientists said.
ahhhhhhhhhhhhhh yes the politics of it all:
I puke on Corbett, I puke on Sandusky, I puke on Paterno despite being dead and most of all I puke on P$U for the way they've completely FUCKED this up.I almost forgot: I puke on Spanier and Curley too, couple of shitty cowards. That is all.
Hmmm if this would go to fruition and the courts decide to go against the NCAA, could this lead to a death penalty of sorts by kicking Penn State out of the NCAA in football? I would have to think that would have a much more drastic impact and the Governor would fold before it came to that.
If they win , ncaa says "ok so we dont have control over you, well we dont have to let you play in our league. SEEEEE Ya!"
I don't believe the NCAA can kick a member institution out. Not only would the NCAA NEVER do this, it would be an extremely stupid thing to do. The writing is already on the wall for the NCAA, with the major conferences very possibly breaking off in the next 5 years. Any chance of that not happening would be destroyed by them trying to 'kick PSU out'.
Regardless of all of this, I'm still waiting for the announcements of investigations (and subsequent penalties) for the following situations:
1. Bobby Petrino's inappropriate and illegal behavior/actions at Arkansas
2. John Chadima's unethical and illegal behavior/actions at Wisconsin
3. Robert Plunkett's illegal actions at Citadel
Not to mention UNC's "university issue", as described by Emmert, which he declared was "not an NCAA issue" (providing fake classes for players).
That's just to name a few. What I don't understand is how PSU can be punished for a crime that is unrelated to gaining athletic benefit, yet not all athletic administration crimes are investigated.
Do not get me wrong, what happened at PSU was infinitely worse and was abhorrently disgusting. I'm purely discussing the NCAA's wildly inconsistent application of penalties.
laconophilia is everywhere...
Here's my counter. If the NCAA can't punish an institution because the people involved aren't around (one of Corbett's stupid arguments), then the NCAA's ability to enforce their rules is basically null and void. You'd better believe one of their answers for a remedy would involve being able to kick out institutions that repeatedly violate their rules. The other possibility is that they might consider getting out of sports all together.

Yah we have liquor stores in PA, but they suck! As a transplant to PA their system of selling booze stinks. It reminds me of buying liquor or beer in Canada. What's wrong with picking up a 6 pack at a gas station. Absolutely nothing!!

HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) — A federal judge on Thursday threw out the governors lawyer said the sanctions were not likely to harm the overall market for higher education or for top-flight football players. He said anti-trust law did not apply and that the organization acted to enforce rules about honesty, sportsmanship and conduct.Sandusky, a former university assistant football coach, is serving a decades-long prison sentence for sexual abuse of 10 boys. He has maintained his innocence.
Good. That was a shameless political move.
Your a retard.
well............yeah, which is why I originally posted the thread. Pretty funny reading all the legal experts posts giving the 'lawsuit' merit. Only surprise is that it took this long to throw out for crissakes.
