Shopping the coach = upsetting the apple cart. If Penn State loses its reputation as a football school, it loses a -load of money into the bargain. Not an excuse, but a potential explanation.
Sounds an awful lot like the catholic excuse for not reporting their rapists either, it would damage the reputation of the church.

Obviously not. I'm pretty glad of it actually, I'd be offended if you said I was in agreement with rioters that support child rape enablers.
