Writer is challenged over story

Posted

To The Editor:

Nothing against the Cleveland Daily Banner, but I do have a beef about the AP sports writer (Steve Megargee) whose story was headline news in the Sports Section in your newspaper in the edition that published Monday, Nov. 27.

His dislike for defensive coach Greg Schiano (Ohio State University) I can understand, even though he was not implicated while working with Jerry Sandusky, the former coach at Penn State.

What I don't like is the comment that this sports writer made, and I quote, "Court documents released last year of a deposition in a case related to the Sandusky scandal suggested Schiano might have been aware of Sandusky's sexual abuse against children, though Schiano says he had no knowledge of what was happening at the time."

Sexual abuse against children?

What I am saying is that a football player going to a big-time university or any university is not a child; most likely, the person is at least 18 years of age. 

If the media thinks that a person in their late teens or early 20s should be treated as a child, then why should we allow them to vote, get a driver's license, and in some states  buy adult beverages? 

Most importantly, why are they allowed to join the military to protect our freedoms?
