Tim Graham Show: What does USA Gymnastics scandal say about our sports culture?

Larry Nassar's reckoning reached another milestone Wednesday.

A Michigan judge sentenced Nassar, the pedophile former gymnastics doctor, to another 40 to 175 years in prison on top of the 60 years he previously received for child pornography crimes.

Some subjects must be discussed over simple sports. Nassar and the dumbfounding inability of USA Gymnastics or Michigan State to stop him from abusing children were the main topic of the "Tim Graham Show" on Sports Radio 1270 The Fan.

Co-host Mike Rodak of ESPN.com, Buffalo News senior sports columnist Jerry Sullivan and local freelance author Lindsey D'Arcangelo were in studio with videographer Jonah Bronstein and producer Bobby Rosati.

Our panel discussed sports misogyny, the blind trust we often put in our youth coaches and the hypocrisies between boys and girls sports.
