It seems that Joe liked to handle things internally. In this case that was a very bad decision. Spanier was in charge. I would say he should be the one to take responsibility.
My biggest question about all of this is what do people know about how pedohpiles operate? I wish someone would have asked Freeh about this. Jerry Sandusky was an intelligent and trusted person. I think all four dropped the ball but I’m not sure how much they knew about the subject.
I happen to be a volunteer United States swimming official. This organization is going through the same issue but with much less publicity. USA swimming now requires training on the subject, including a very enlightening video. What surprises me is when I tried to find some info on the USA incidents to compare to ours, I found a few posts that seemed to indicate that they may still have issues. I hope that does not happen to us.
Here are 2 posts concerning USA swimming. There are others I’m sure.
