The Sports Kings: Top Sports Stories

The ouster of one of America’s most revered coaches, Penn State’s Joe Paterno, after shocking child sex abuse charges against his former assistant has been overwhelmingly voted the sports story of the year by members of The Associated Press.

There were 214 ballots submitted from U.S. news organizations that make up the AP’s membership. The voters were asked to rank the top 10 sports stories of the year, with the first-place story getting 10 points, the second-place story receiving nine points, and so on.

The Penn State saga received 2,044 points and 172 first-place votes. The No. 2 story – labor strife in the NFL and NBA – had 15 first-place votes and 1,345 points.

Green Bay’s Super Bowl championship was third.
