Glad they rejected the appeal. The Paterno clan is clinging to their denial for their dear lives. Can you imagine the depression they will feel if they move out of the denial stage?

They probably will be stuck in denial for the rest of their lives.

It is sad how a parent or spouse can condone such behavior. Children learn from a parent--if abuse is acceptable to a parent it will be passed to the child. It is not love if the family believes his actions were acceptable but rather he had control and manipulated his family in life--creating a false persona that he was their hero, always there for them--most likely he was not--his words were more important than his actions. Sadly Joe Paterno knowingly and willingly allowed and by silence and his actions encouraged the brutal treatment of children. I am sad for his children-what a sad legacy to pass on--abuse is acceptable--now his children will probably pass it on to their children--one day the pattern will turn family member against another family member--then maybe a lesson will be learned.

Penn State board of trustees member(s) seeking another appeal of NCAA sanctions, on the grounds that Penn State president Erickson didn't have the legal authority to accept the sanctions in the first place.

Expecting the NCAA to reject the appeal, Penn State BOT members are planning a federal lawsuit -- so don't expect this to die any time soon:

The PSU supporters need to understand at some point that the more they keep picking at the wound the uglier it is going to get. They need to be reminded I guess that the Department of Education is also investigating. The Paterno Estate will face claims from the victims. They will have every chance to present all the evidence they can muster of all the things that Joe Paterno did to stop Jerry Sandusky. From the Freeh report, we have seen more evidence that he knew than we could ever have expected. I have a feeling more digging will be done and it won't look any better. When the victims from the 70's and possibly 60's start coming forward...anyone doubt that 1998 is not really the first time anybody was aware that Sandusky was a predator?

Good for the Trustees.

If the NCAA's case is ironclad, then they should have no problem in hearing the appeal.

This is what happens when things are handled outside the formal channels.
