Same type of Culture LFC & PSU
During the last couple of months, the culture at Penn State has been questioned. The Penn State culture is very simple. They are a tight knit community where everyone is from there and outsiders are usually not brought in. In that culture things are kept quite and they try not to let it out. For years, incidents at Penn State where handled in house and anyone who suggested they were handling things wrong were shunned.
Across the pond, there is a similar culture at Liverpool Football Club and that showed this weekend when manager Kenny Dalgish stood up for Luis Suarez not shaking Patrice Evra's hand before the United Liverpool game. During the course of the last two months, Suarez and Dalgish have been fighting with everyone over racism claims against Suarez.
Liverpool is a lot like Penn State, people in the club believe they know what is right for everything and how dare you question them. I'm not comparing the Suarez racism mess to the PSU Jerry Sandusky sex abuse allegations, but rather how they handled things. Anything that happens involving Liverpool is always someone else's fault, they also think that they can handle everything their way and sometimes it blows up in their face, like their handling of the situation this weekend.
Lets hope the Suarez situations makes Liverpool Football Club look in the mirror and re-examine the culture of the club and what they stand for.
