28. Secrecy

Collegiate teams in general do not like to give the public any information. Programs make sure their players do not disclose anything to the media. Many times when a sexual assault crime is committed and the girl accuses the player the team will know about it before anyone. This secret is kept for sometimes days, weeks, and maybe even months. This is serious information that is kept from the public and I don’t believe it is right. I think teammates should be able to do what they feel is right. If they feel that keeping a sexual assault crime is wrong then they should be allowed to stand up and say something. Teams often times make sure the female does not tell anyone. The secrecy in teams is something that needs to be changed in college sports. In college sports we are dealing with eighteen to twenty two year old females who need to be heard and must be helped. The NCAA should be able to get involved in this conflict to make sure colleges tell the media everything that is going on off the field in regards to crimes. The public needs to know what is going on in their community and on their campus.
