I think it's a shame that the current players have to suffer for the actions of some prior administrators. Just like when you punish your children, the consequences should be relevant to the offense and applied to the offenders.

It might be instructive to read Eileen Morgan's scathing indictment of Louis Freeh and the results of his investigations for pay over the years. I for one will wait for the trials and lawsuits. Much of Freeh's case was based on conjecture and assumption and would never stand up in a court of law.
