Rapist Jocks: Woody don't have a dog in this fight, but it seems to me that the whole culture of football has become debased, decayed and degraded far beyond the point here it should be an acceptable part of any civilized society; especially, not for youth.
Let's FIRST stop growing, and then stop coddling these bullies and the thugs. And their enablers. Every person who was involved in the "parties" should be charged as an accomplice, including the parents.
An event such as this one should occasion sanction of the most draconian sort, including shutting down the program, completely, in the school which spawned it.
No football for Steubenville for at least 5 years, and the same sorts of penalties for any other such events elsewhere--and it happens ALL THE TIME.
Fire the coach, and clean house in the whole school administration. They KNEW what was going on. In a town of 19,000, EVERYFUCKINGBODY knew. One of the kids implicated in the ordeal is the son of the local prosecutor, for fux sake...
I'd enthusiastically support a measure to surround the whole feculent cess-pit of "Steubenville" with concertina wire to keep the infection contained.
