Re: Some questions on this ND tragedy
If a 20 year old kid busts his butt and stays quiet doing his job, maybe he'll get a letter of recommendation from Brian Kelly to be a video coordinator at another school after graduation. Recognition from somebody with clout for doing a crappy job well can jump start a career. If he pipes up, there's probably 300 other kids at Notre Dame willing to hang out with the football team and watch practice every day.
Look at it this way, despite the academic reputation of Notre Dame, this may have been his best shot for a foothold to a career. Most of us out there would put up with additional risk to keep that opportunity alive.
I'm guessing there were other pressures to do a job and do it well despite the risks beyond someone of authority saying so.
What if this wasn't a rhetorical question?
All models are wrong. Some of them are useful.
