Peter Keating, who writes for ESPN The Magazine, thinks it would be wise to enforce a television ban on Penn State because, in his opinion, the penalties/sanctions imposed on the school and football program apparently don't equate to a punishment that is stringent enough.
If the NCAA really wanted to stop football programs from abusing power, it should have dealt Penn State the crushing financial blow of a TV ban, writes Peter Keating in ESPN The Magazine.
Peter Keating can lick my behind.
What this man might not understand however is that many of us probably don't believe but PSU might not have signed off on that. Remember BOB wanted to "Play Football and Play Football on TV".
And if a television ban had been imposed, he would be complaining that people still get to attend the games in person. Some people wouldn't be happy with any punishment less severe than wiping State College off the map.
What he really might not understand is that employer may be the #1 (or #2) party against that, outside of the PSU family. You think ESPN is going to like no PSU on TV? I think not.
That four-letter network created the monster, now they get to cash in buy showing it... either Keating doesn't get that or doesn't care. He probably needs the clicks himself, I'm guessing.
"We want the warriors"
Yeah, PSU games pay that chump's salary so he would be most wise to shut it.
Once again another punishment that does not punish one single person involved with this situation. Not a player, coach, or alum committed any NCAA violation, but some apparently want to put 600k in jail along with Jerry for his crimes. Even if Joe did squash this (which he didn't), those involved need to face real punishments. Banning PSU from TV doesn't take back Jerry's crimes. It doesn't stop pedophiles. Curley, Schultz, and Spanier won't be hurt by it. Honestly, some people want to flog the whole damn school in public apparently.
"One man didn't build this program and one man sure as hell cannot tear it down."
This is the same DB that thinks Title IV didn't kill college wrestling.
When people hear the words "child molestation/rape" all rationale goes out the window. Whenever kids are harmed, people want whoever is responsible to pay. That is human nature to som extent. Unfortunately when people use an overly emotional thought process in situations such as this, facts get thrown out of the window. Knee Jerk reactions occur before the entire truth can be revealed. Look at the situation PSU is in now. On a few other message boards I have seen quite a few posters actually call for "PSU and surrounding areas to be nuked/wiped off the face of the earth" as you wrote. Once again whenever little kids are harmed...... People are going to want blood.
do ur research keating...hawaii deal already been discussed and not happening..just one of the many ridiculous comments.
No one ever mentions that the one victim to speak out about the sanctions actually said he was upset by them saying he loves Penn State football yet somehow these guys keep saying taking penn state football away would help the victims heal...all just blowing smoke trying to get some hits. i never even heard of this dude before he jumped on the bury penn state bandwagon

Peter Keating obviously just doesn't get it.
If they start losing sponsorship they won't. ESPN would show grandmothers playing Scrabble if they made money off of it.
God, these losers are really milking this for all it's worth. I think it's about time to move on to the next sensationalism.
Just another hater.
Still another journalist jakazz who thinks piling on will help him attain status in the profession.
Want to express YOUR opinion to him?
Have at it.
the best response is...who is Peter Keating?
Well if he had his wish he could be out of a job. Our ratings for Sep 1:
Saturday’s Ohio/Penn State college football game drew a 2.4 U.S. rating and 3.503 million viewers on ESPN, up 71% in ratings and 74% in viewership from Akron/Ohio State last year (1.4, 2.011M).
Just more hogwash. Just like the talk of the "4 year dath penalty." That was never going to happen. A 4 year death penalty would result in PSU losing hundreds of millions of dollars. That means other sports would be cut and/or cutback. We would not be able to pay any fines (how does the NCAA have the right to fine us). The town of State College would be devastated and all fo central PA would feel the economic impact. The death penalty would harm way to many innocent people to ever be imposed especially for 4 years.
No TV would have been a crushing blow, but imagine the atmosphere at State College on gameday!
More than just football
Cancel your subscription. That's the only way the four letter network will ever shut these idiots up
Not really sure why I'm getting downvoted for posting this article. Just passing along an article that I came across, one that as a Penn State fan I strongly disagree with.
Sorry I meant IX
