NCAA Commentary

Ladies and Gentlemen –

I had something else planned for this article, but it will be delayed while we talk about the latest from the NCAA regarding Penn State.

By now you have all read about it or heard about it

The NCAA imposed serious penalties against Penn State University over the Jerry Sandusky fiasco.

But before we go on let me remind you all of a few things

This “volunteer” organization is entrusted to govern collegiate athletics…

They sure do make a lot of money off collegiate athletics

And by “a Lot” of money I mean they make so damn much money they don’t even know how much they take in, at least that’s what they told the United States Congress last year.

Yeah, they told Congress they don’t know “for sure” how many billions of dollars they make…

That’s right I said Billions

The Harvard School of Business ranks the NCAA as the Number One Monopoly in the Country

They rank them ahead of Microsoft and OPEC….

That’s really saying something

They say they “care” about the Student-Athlete, but we know they really don’t, not in the least.

But let me go back to something real quick….

They are “supposed” to govern Colligate Athletics right?

That’s it

So what NCAA rules did Penn State violate?

What took place at Penn State was a legal matter that has been decided in court: Period

Case Closed.

Well, that is until the civil “damage” trials are completed and Penn State pays the victims in this tragedy millions and millions and millions of dollars.

What happened at Penn State had nothing to do with the jurisdiction of the NCAA

Got you with that one didn’t I?

Now before some of my victimologist readers rise up on their back legs and begin to howl at the moon….

Let me say this…

You can say whatever you want and disagree with me if you would like, but there is something far worse that is going on here and it slipped right passed our collective noses.

The NCAA has moved from collegiate athletics and has now assumed the role of Moral Dictator over all Colleges and Universities. You don’t think so?

Look at what they did to Penn State

The NCAA sent a clear message to all Universities in their all “volunteer” organization that anything we want to punish you for, we will…..

Somebody in some athletic department cries “Discrimination”……

The Mighty NCAA will step in to punish your college or university

Somebody on an athletic team screams that Homosexuals are being joked about….

The Morality Police of the NCAA will come to your university and drop the hammer

Somebody is offended that some athletes are praying before they take the court or field

The NCAA will come to the offended parties rescue and crush the Praying Christians

You don’t think so?

Well let me say this

I am a simple man and I can give references to support that claim

With that being said, I believe there are only three kinds of people in this World

There are Sheep, Wolves and Sheepdogs

The Wolves prey on the Sheep, because that’s what they do and that’s who they are

The Sheepdogs try to protect the Sheep from the Wolves and will lay down their lives for the Sheep

With all that being said….

We have a lot of wolves in our midst today

But this article is about the NCAA, so I will stick to that topic for now

The Wolves in the NCAA has seized power that isn’t theirs to seize.

They imposed penalties and fines on Penn State with no regard for the current student-athletes and coaches at the university and most importantly….

They have no jurisdiction and no authoritative power to impose such penalties

The only thing they have is threats and intimidation

Which reminded me of something….

You know it wasn’t all that long ago some other folks where faced with a similar situation

A strong authoritative “government” had imposed fines and penalties on the people

That government seized power and usurped the will of the people

They acted as Dictator and Moral Police to subjugate their “institutional members”

When the people had had enough some of the folks wrote this….

“ That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.Such has been the patient sufferance of these Colonies; and such is now the necessity which constrains them to alter their former Systems of Government.”

My fellow Sheepdogs…..

Enough is Enough
