After these two idiots and their coach are convicted the school system should be sanctioned. No football program for four years. That's the only way to overhaul the program and clean it up.

They can learn to play a new game, CORNHOLE, or HIDE THE SALAMI. Little arrogant Pukes. Makes me sick. Shoulda sent them to WV for some backwoods justice. (Banjo cue). Serious.

These two little pervs need to learn what it is like to be taken advantage of while not being in control. My hope is the judge feels the same way. A couple of years in a cell with Bubby will do that for them.

What actions will the School board undertake to clean up this mess?

Can lawsuits against the coaches and school administration be filed?

OHSAA should prevent Steubenville from participating in any post season games for a few years. It would be a small penalty to pay but anyone involved would learn from it.

"Walter Madison, an attorney for Richmond, challenged McGhee's account, saying he may have exaggerated in his mind the girl's intoxication because of his anger over the allegations." One of the boys said she was puking at one point. That's a pretty definite sign she was too intoxicated. That coach deserves a little home justice.

A friend witnessed one of these assaults??? Did i read right? If a friend did witness one of the assaults, why did they not call the police or try to stop it theirselves? How could a coach cover up a alledged rape? Why did it take so long to report this to the police? If anyone has the answers, i would thank you for filling me in.

These punks look pretty smug in picture, one would think they'd hide face in shame. What an outrage!

raven101 - "TWO" coaches have been identified during testimony so far, the head coach "who took care of it" and the assistant coach who provided the house and booze for the party claiming he didn't know. They both should have been fired and arrested already. This rape runs deep into Big Red Football and shows the level of rape coverup in Stupidville.

These athletes are so entitled. This "coach" is a big reason why. When will we make honor more valuable than athletic ability? Disgusting!! Stand up and be accountable! If the "coach" will cover up rape for you why not buy the beer too!!

They are guilty and that "High School football coach who took care of it" should be brought to trial for the rape coverup. Again I say "Rape is Rape", and the victim deserves her justice.
