Rather than punishing Penn State through NCAA sanctions or a football ban, Alabama coach Nick Saban has what he feels is a more productive idea for the Nittany Lions going forward in the aftermath of the Jerry Sandusky scandal.
Add a tax to ticket sales for athletic events and giving the proceeds to a child abuse charity.
The focus, Saban said, should be on asking “what do we need to do to make it better” rather than making things worse for those who had nothing to do with the Sandusky allegations.
Of course, it would be the fans who have to deal with the financial consequences of Saban’s idea. As was noted in our one-liners last night, ticket sales for Penn State football games are still going strong.
Thoughts, Penn State fans? Would you be okay with a ticket tax for sporting events if the proceeds went to abuse victims?
