Joe agrees with me

…even now, football remains too important in the Happy Valley. Nor, of course, did the N.C.A.A. impose the death penalty — Emmert claims it was, in part, because innocent bystanders would be hurt. But that’s a silly excuse; its sanctions invariably hurt players and others who have done nothing wrong. That is the nature of the beast.
