NCAA has no right to take state tax payer funds regardless of the amount and levy a fine requiring PSU to pay them. Absolute insanity but they figure money will cure child abuse which it wont. Throwing money at things doesnt solve issues see WELFARE in PA!!
If the NCAA gets control of this money II am willing to bet that only half of the money will actually go to kids. The other half will be administrative cost to oversee the distribution.
what the hell? Did you just equate child abuse to being poor? Did you also just argue that it's not worth to fund programs and charities designed to help stop child abuse?

That's why he's the second worst poster here.
"The state has attempted to grant itself the ability to do whatever it wants to whomever it wants." - The NCAA.
Forgive me if this was mentioned already. But lol.
To me, this suit by the NCAA is about 2 things:
1. Trying to show other schools they can't be pushed around; and
2. Making sure they have enough money to defend lawsuits when schools realize #1 is total BS.

You see this a lot in politics; it's called projection. You take a weakness that you have and you accuse the other side of the very same thing.
I agree with this. This ploy may backfire on the NCAA.
NCAA President Mark Emmert responded to a letter from U.S. Representatives Glenn 'GT' Thompson and Charlie Dent in which they requested the NCAA reinstate the 40 football scholarships Penn State lost when it signed a consent agreement with the NCAA, accepting its sanctions.

Did anyone else quickly glance at the title of this thread and for a second thought it said "NCAA sues Sue Pa" ?? Man, I need to get more rest!!!
All the NCAA has to do is point to the part of the consent decree that discusses who controls the money.... oh wait, it's not in there. All it says is that it can't be used to find PSU programs. Here's my question.... if the NCAA planned to have complete control of the money, why was there a need to include that stipulation in the contract? to remind themselves how they can't spend it? what joke.
It's clear that the NCAA dropped the ball big time by not being being explicit in where the money goes and who decides it.
sorry for going back2back here...
Can someone remind me why the Commonwealth isn't asking for an injunction and/or threatening to claim damages should they win? Like others, I'm concerned that this mess will drag out until the majority of the sanctions are behind us. I would think that the NCAA would really start sweating at the thought of paying damages in this case after years of sanctions. Damages could probably be argued in the realm of $100 million if you consider all the potential loss over 4 years of harsh sanctions.
someone with a legal background explained the reason for not doing that now and I don;t recall the reason. I do think they said that they could still do that at some point if they wanted.

Wow the NCAA opening another front. Dividing your forces in the face of a superior enemy is risky business. Now NCAA is fighting two separate parts of PA government: Corbett's law firm and AG Kane.
Hope Corbett amends to include financial damages and Kane files a counter or new lawsuit on the validity of the consent decree.
It appears Emmert's ego won't allow him to back down, but what is the stomach of the NCAA executive board and membership?
They are elites as well.
IIRC, it's harder to prove damages and therefore the state didn't want to take the chance that the case would be dismissed on those grounds.
Dominate The State
@bylawblog: The NCAA sued PA not just over $60 million, but to defend one of its most important & least-known legal victories: http://t.co/01FFJ7pMAY
Interesting description on NCAA legal precedent. Like this part: " In effect, it limits what type of state regulation the NCAA can come under, to only things consistent with NCAA regulations." Which part of NCAA regulations cover the consent decree process?
Yeah, the article is off... The argument is a stretch, and the law is fact specific. It doesnt fit our facts here. A court could choose to include the acts that are in our facts, but I doubt that the court would want to extend NCAA protection in light of recent events (Miami).
WE ARE! And we will always be...
From everything that I have read, by the state not asking for monetary damages, the judge may be a little more open to granting them "standing" if it were a close call.
My fault, I thought you were saying that the fine money was fungible, not the funding PSU receives from the Commonwealth.
SIAP: - saw this on 'another' site:
From the NCAA's statement about their lawsuit against the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania.... comes the definition of hypocrisy
"The state has attempted to grant itself the ability to do whatever it wants to whomever it wants."
What a joke they are!!!
Has the NCAA ever fined another program? Only can find references to PSU's fine.
