I see where ABC News is running a piece on GMA regarding Peyton Manning’s involvement in a sexual assault case over 20 years ago. Of course, we at BSP knew about that in the 90’s, explaining in part why we don’t do hero worship. I think the only time we stuck up for a guy in sports worship mode was Joe Paterno, and that’s because he was really old.

We aren’t going to get into a rehash of events taking place over 20 years ago, although we certainly read the disturbing report and documents (linked above). That’s up to you.

The real truth in what happens now is, do his advertisers make a break? I doubt it because the events are old and he’s so tied up with them financially they couldn’t break away.

About bittersportspills

I love sports. I don't love the hype, homerism, ratings talk, self-important egomaniacs, bias or any of the other nonsense you get with the national media. Nor will you get the two clowns on sports talk radio who stage phony arguments. It doesn't make it entertaining. It makes it time to turn on your iPod and jam instead of listening to white noise generators. This is the sports blog for you, the ones who don't like everything Los Angeles or New York. Just because the sporting media is based there doesn't mean we have to like their teams. We do treat them fairly, though. That means if one of those cities has an average QB who plays particularly well...we'll note it. If they're garbage, we'll say so. Instead of crying "why, why, why" like a certain sports media homer did in his radio broadcast. This isn't my job...I have a real one. Nevertheless, I'll post here when I make an observation. Common sense in sports is nearly dead. Now we're attempting to bring it back.
