Penn State: Paterno and Player Discipline, Clothing Sales Drop
November 22, 2011
More developments on Penn State:
- An article in The Wall Street Journal raises questions about the reputation of Joe Paterno for holding his football players to the highest of standards. The article details instances in which Paterno clashed with university officials who were trying to enforce conduct rules that apply to other students to football players as well. Paterno insisted that he -- not the regular authorities -- decide on athletes' punishment.
- Sales of hats, shirts and other clothing with the Pennsylvania State University name are down about 40 percent compared to this time period last year, the Associated Press reported. "This is the first time I can recall ever seeing a decline of sales right out of the box,'' said Matt Powell, an analyst with SportsOneSource Group. "I have never seen anything this before. But we've never seen a scandal quite like this before.''
