Sanctioning Crisis
Non-member schools are
guilty until proven innocent

  • The plain implication of the current sanctioning crisis is that no school which is not a member of its state association can be trusted -- guilty until proved innocent.
  • Athletes may miss the opportunity of a lifetime to compete at the fabled Penn Relays unless this mess gets settled soon.
  • Who are these people who will deny perfectly innocent youngsters such an opportunity? What is their record? Not a good one, as we shall recount.
  • A New York Federation official claims that he is just "enforcing the rule." But what rule? One that violates the constitution in so many ways a lawyer would have a hard time deciding which one to pursue.
