Joe Paterno's legacy at Penn State is tainted as late coach failed to ... - New York Daily News | Sports Ethics: Garcia O | Scoop.it

This is where ethics in coaching and sports takes a horrible and sad turn.  The story of Joe Paterno and Jerry Sandusky is a sad, dark, disturbing tale.  One used his position to perform sexual acts on little boys (Sandusky) where the other was highly unethical in knowing about what was going on and hiding it from the school board and law enforcement officials.  Joe Paterno broke an ethical code that coaches have to never use their position to hide illegal acts and to turn a blind eye, so to speak, when acts are being performed that are illegal.  Joe Patterno allowed victims of a sexual predator to live with the fact that it happened and could have been stopped if he would have lived up to ethical and moral considerations and pushed for the arrest of one of his employees and coaching staff members. 

 

Joe Paterno was the winningest coach and at a point in time, considered a hero of the Penn State area, but no more.  He has broken not only a law, but morally and ethically, broke everything a coach should stand for.  He preached integrity and graduating college, but never protected his players from possibly being victims, witnessing such acts, and he never protected the community that tried to protect him.

Pablo Nunez's curator insight, November 17, 2013 2:23 PM

I hope more athletes will be encouraged to take a stand against unethical behavior be it from a staff member or teammate.

Wendy R's curator insight, April 18, 2014 8:42 PM

"Laughable?" a bit derogatory isn't it?  How about something along the lines of, "We are unclear as to where these allegations came from, we don't coach in the manner he described, but we are eager to get to the bottom of this as fast and as civilized as possible." 

Josh Laker's curator insight, May 11, 2014 12:14 PM

Over the past few years the media has reported on coaches abusing players.  This article brings to light allegations of abuse at Washington State University.
