Why wouldn't they have the right? They are a private organization with the ability to police its own members. Courts of law can punish or not punish based on their laws and the orgs can do the same irrespective of each other.

No NCAA regulations were violated from my limited understanding of this case, nor was the University's athletic programs getting an unfair advantage.

Have not read thr NCAA by-laws but that is what all reports say is where this would come from.

As I said earlier as far as unfair advantage goes, I think hiding this scandal gave them an advantage as far as not having to deal with the fallout of reporting the scandal.
