He also said a girl lied 3 times about getting raped
Scored 4 touchdowns...in a single game. Polk High!
Seeberg never claimed she was raped but don't let facts get in the way. Go ahead and use the suicide of a girl and the accidental death of a ND student for trolling if it makes you feel better.
Three football staff members monitored wind on the day of the accident, and thus employed the football program’s wind protocol with respect to the lifts:
Head athletic trainer Jim Russ, who provides direction to Kelly regarding safety and health issues
Director of football operations Chad Klunder, who handles all logistics involved with football practice
Tim Collins, the director of video and film who provides direction to Klunder on the use of lifts.
(As common practice, and on October 27, when wind speeds exceeded 20 mph, Russ, Klunder and Collins actively monitored weather sites online, both the National Weather Service and Weather.com. According to established guidelines, when winds exceeded 35 mph, lifts were grounded.)
The investigation team established a timeline regarding October 27, and in congress with computer forensics, revealed the following:
At 9:12 AM, Collins checked the wind for the first time; at 10 AM, Kelly informed Klunder that practice would be held outside, and at 10:30, Klunder relayed the decision to Collins and Russ.
Between 10:52 AM and 2:38 PM, Russ, Klunder and Collins checked the weather an additional six times. At 2:46 PM, Collins and Russ checked the weather for the final time.
Beginning at 3 PM, the videographers retrieved their equipment and were dropped off at the lifts by Collins. Declan Sullivan sent his first tweet at 3:22 PM; practice began at 3:45; at 4:06, Sullivan sent his second tweet; at 4:54, his lift fell.
According to Affleck-Graves, “As wind was such a critical aspect of the investigation, the team devoted considerable time to establish the exact data available to our staff at the time the decisions were taken. We used computer forensics to determine exactly when each staff member accessed weather sites from their computer, and the exact data they saw at those times.”
A detailed analysis of these findings is presented in the report. Included within, and in part explained by Affleck-Graves:
The weather websites used update their information once per hour, at six minutes before the hour. This information was not known by staff, including the Collins/Klunder/Russ trio. Thus, the reading Collins saw at 9:12 AM was actually a posting from the Michiana Regional Airport, at 8:54 AM. Consequently, the data accessed by the staff could have a real-time lag of as much as an hour.
Prior to practice, the staff tracked wind speed in the mid-20s with gusts below the established 35 mph threshold. The last check was at 2:46 PM, just prior to leaving for practice. Eight minutes later, the National Weather Service updated information on its site and revealed wind speeds of 29 mph with gusts of 38 mph – above the recommended threshold.
According to the report: “Although reported wind speeds and gusts increased after the staff last checked the weather, prior to practice, the National Weather Service Forecast Office (“NWSFO”) downgraded a previously-issued wind warning to a wind advisory. Meteorological data shows that, at approximately 4:00 a.m. on October 27, the NWSFO issued a high wind warning valid from 8:00 a.m. until 9:00 p.m. for northern Indiana. However, at 2:44 p.m., before outdoor practice began, the NWSFO canceled the wind warning, downgrading to a wind advisory which was valid until 9:00 p.m. on October 27.
“The Investigation found that Declan checked the weather before practice via weather.gov and, from that webpage, accessed the text of the wind warning. The warning indicated the possibility of gusts of up to 60 mph. Klunder, Collins, and Russ did not recall seeing the wind warning when they checked the weather before practice nor accessing the details of that warning. Their focus was the reported wind conditions. Because Collins did not see winds over 35 mph, he did not relay any weather information to the coaching staff. If he had read reports of actual winds over 35 mph close to the time of practice, he would have informed Klunder. Ultimately, no one—not Collins, Klunder, nor Russ—told Kelly or any coach that practice should be held indoors or that the lifts should not be used.”
Goodness I'm not reading that crap
Danielle Hunter, Jamario Rasco, Anthony FREAK Johnson.. DL wrecking crew of 2013.
Of course not. It is obvious you are simply trolling and do not care about the facts. The students accidental death is nothing more than trolling material for you.
How am I trolling by using facts? Why are you the ONLY person ITT defending all of this? Why did your AD care more about Te'o than the death and rape/suicide? If all this happened at another school, I guarantee you would be saying the same crap we're all saying. Take the gold shades off
You have yet to use any facts. You are simply using the tragic death of a ND student to troll. I gave you a list of facts regarding the case and you had no interest.
you said she lied 3 times about getting raped
Nope, that is just another lie on your part. I am sure you can find where I made that claim and link it?
Right Notre Dame payed that off just like their doing with this they are paying the right people to make this go away. Notre Dame is above the Law and Morals. If they can get away with Murder and rape. Trust me they can get away with a story about a fake girlfriend.
What? Your school made.. Yes, made a kid climb up a tower to film a practice in OBVIOUS heavy winds that lead to his death. Do you have any sense of logic??? You can't be this ignorant. You're not even worth talking with, all you've done the entire day is cry and complain in every single thread so even if I gave you "facts", you would argue anyways. Kelly made this kid go in a tower in extremely strong winds. You mean to tell me Kelly and the school didn't know there were strong winds even though they were OUTSIDE?? Get some common sense.... I guess they payed all the families out of kindness lol.. No, to save their ass and shut people up
Anyways, done with you and your crying.. You cried about JC, cried about this, cried about the rape cover up, crying about Te'o.. Goodness you need help.. Homerism is ridiculous but I guess ND did NOTHING wrong in all of these incidents.
Yeah, you're going on my "ignore" list for being such an idiotic baby.

They payed em All off.
So once again, no facts and false claims. There was no rape coverup because Seeberg never claimed she was raped. Please cut and paste where I cried about JC. This should be good. You refuse to read actual facts from the day Declan Sullivan died but have no problem using his death to troll a fanbase. I am sure you made no effort to read the facts in the Seeberg case either based on your false claims. You are truly a class act.
You can't be that stupid.
As the tower is shaking back and forth, "better check the computers to see if the weather is okay for that kid to be up there."
What is there like a particular wind speed that is known to knock towers down?
Just the fact that they were checking computers shows that getting some extra practice film was ultimately what mattered most in this case. They clearly knew it was dangerous, but decided they'd let the computers make the decisions they should have made themselves.
Yet another one that apparently has no desire to read the report from that day. Just make it up as you go along.
no but you are.
Nope. You do know that osha is a branch of the Government, right? So you are implying the Government was paid off. You are a stupid somma bytch!!

Man you got him. Might want to add in "infinity"
your stupidity is showing big time. IM gonna have to ignore you i cant handle this anymore.
Go take a nap Corky.
That shit you posted above? Yeah, I read it. What are Russ, Klunder and Collins all blind? They have to rely on a computer to make the decision they should be able to make by simply watching the tower shake?
The fact that their explanation is good enough for you leads me to believe that the three guys mentioned above and you are probably the types who need manuals on how to have sex.
