What an awful article. This is why women should be home cooking.
Feminist liberal like Gloria Alred(sp)....always running towards the woman's voice....
"Strap on" is "No parts" spelled backwards...coincidence--- I think not!
Big time college football championship? What the hell is that?
Stupid article and even more reason to hate Notre Dame.
Good she's ugly as fuk.. A little disappointed in you taking old material from the biggest ND hater on 247, MrWoodson, step your game up!
She won't have to worry about getting sexually assaulted by anyone from the team. That's for sure.
she probably wouldn't mind..
You guys, our future is bleak...
I for one did not blast Manziel, for his run in. I did far worse at 19.
It's always been mind-boggling to me just how little air-time the Declan Sullivan story got...
Standing on a hill in my mountain of dreams,

The same way the Catholic Church covered up the priest molestation scandals for decades - a whole lot of "holier-than-thou" behavior, an unhealthy dose of delusion and an inflated sense of self-importance leading to a Machiavellian approach to potential scandal.
Bwahahahaha - I told you to stop obsessing
What do catholic priest rape cases in Boston and NYC have to do with Notre Dame?
Oh BTW it's not just Catholic priests - it's other creeps as well - google is a powerful tool......you should check it out

Lurking blue and gold I see.....
Well, the easily-stated connection is that Notre Dame is the most prominent Catholic university in the world, but that's not even what I was talking about.
I was talking about the motivations behind the act of sweeping the scandal under the rug. A theme through the Seeberg and Sullivan cases is that preserving the football team and the good name of the university is of paramount importance. If a few scandals end up hushed-up or swept under the rug, so be it. You see a similar mentality in the priest molestation cases - the message and sanctity of the Catholic church is of paramount importance, so if a few molested children have to be hushed up or swept under the rug, so be it.
Both took a very Machiavellian ("the ends justify the means") approach to hushing up potential scandals. Both viewed the preservation of reputation and entity as more important than exploring and analyzing the scandal-in-waiting.
Not really covered up. Just a lack of media coverage. Both instances were investigated by not just ND campus police but by the Indiana State Police. Both times there was not enough evidence to bring about cases. Do you think the State Police would help cover up such crimes?
It was all over the place when it happened. Where were you? OSHA investigated & found no wrong doing. Still don't know why that poor kid was out there in those conditions, but OSHA found no wrong doing. Are they covering for ND?
I'm not sure about that, I thought ND was fined for the incident with Declan.

They were. For not taking proper precautions. But were found not to be responsible for his death. Don't know how. Ask OSHA.
It boils down to the fact that ND didn't actually push the lift over, so under OSHA's standards, they were only guilty of putting him in a dangerous situation without precautions, they weren't constructively responsible for his death. The outcome might've been different in a criminal court, but no criminal charges were ever filed.
It is all around a shame. No way he should have been up there. It was stupid on ND's part. I do believe the family & ND did reach a financial settlement out of court. Doesn't make it right & won't bring him back. Could of & should have been prevented.
Yep. That's about all that needs to be said.
a horrible loss of a young life that should have never happened..
It was in the news yeah but not for long. I'm far from Mr. Conspiracy Theory but what bothered me the most was no one ever denied that Kelly didn't know the exact weather conditions before he sent that kid up there. Nothing will bring him back but I've always had a bad taste in my mouth over that whole ordeal. It just didn't sit right with me from the start.
Have any of the players names ever leaked out? I wonder which players were involved in these things. I believe the article said both players were still on the team
