    Found it odd that no one started a posting on this. Anyway, looks like Coach Reno is in hot water. Good.



    And they arrested two girls who sent threatening texts to the victim the next day. DA also will subpoena the entire football staff -- 19 of them.

    The whole city is dirt-poor but they need 19 football coaches.

    Guess my thread was deemed too offensive; in any even (My fault) Glad to see someone holding neighborhood Lombardi accountable. He better look out, he's not that far from Paterno like fallout

    I'd be willing to be no one has challenged Reno in years, if not decades. Football is his fiefdom. The newspaper is practically subservient, the TV station even more so. The principal is one of his ex-assistant coaches. The superintendent a former principal.

    We'll see what actual evidence there is of serious obstruction, but I still think he should retire immediately, if he's not immediately fired.

    He should receive the same fate Nicky Santoro received at the end of Casino.

    I know a former sports editor at the Steubenville paper. Guess how he made some extra money...publishing a book detailing the history of Big Red Football. Got full cooperation from the school and the program.

    Yeah, he's really going to go after the program after that.

    This is very close to that situation in the 80's in West Orange NJ where a mentally disabled girl was raped by members of football team (I read book IIRC My Boys) giving athletes sense of entitlement

    Considering he hasn't worked there in 15 years, you're right.

    The football players in the Glen Ridge case were also found guilty on March 17.

    You better reread. Town was Glen Ridge.


    A town of "the privileged" as opposed to the "hardscrabble" .Wall Street parents instead of mill workers.
