Its a complicated issue; the Penn State drama that has taken place since last fall. Tonight, Bob Costas offered a group that wants to present a different side to the entire story. In their account, and subsequent lawsuit, there is nothing to tie Paterno to the Sandusky crimes. Additionally, their lawsuit questions both the Freh report and the NCAA's questionable actions when it comes to enforcing sanctions (the later of which I personally agree with).
Full disclosure - I have read a great deal of the initial report, and none of the report now preached by the Paterno clan.
That said, and initial observation only, its smart that anyone named Paterno wasn't involved with this TV appearance. Of course, the family had 2 of the three members of the panel that were there on the payroll (at a minimum,*my personal opinion*). Largely, they pushed the fact that a panel member that supported the Paterno clan was a not only the former governor of Pennsylvania but also the former the Attorney General of the United States of America. My immediate reaction to the former AGUSA, is that he is most likely the slimiest person in the room because being a manipulative piece of garbage is what takes you that sort of level. You don't get to be the Attorney General by being railroad lawyer Abraham Lincoln, you get there by being the sneakiest bastard around. Also, it seems clear that this lawsuit has absolutely zero chance of not being thrown out of court the second it actually gets to the docket. First of all, the NCAA is an organization that one voluntarily agrees with. There is nothing to say that you can't disregard their rulings; however, if you do you have to understand and respect that those records won't be recognized.
Ultimately, this is a lawsuit that has no merit, has no where to go, and will go no where. They are suing an organization that they voluntarily agree to accept rules and violations from. This is as crazy as it gets, and I am shocked a former USATG would get mixed in this. Paterno was 99% good, but at a minimum 1% awful. What is amazing to me, is that Better Call Saul got an hour on big time TV to push a case that will never see a court room. I don't know if I should be mad or impressed.
