(The problem with Islam is fundamental.)
In the world of professional and college sports, skill and performance on the field is everything, and certainly trumps morality or criminality. In the eyes of many of these coaches (and the boosters, too), a rapist who is a first-rate athlete is superior. They don't want their star athletes raping and killing people, but it is primarily because if they get caught, the team might be deprived of their services.
This is the down side of a highly competetive environment where performance becomes the entire measure of the person. In business or sports, criminals and moral degenerates sometimes perform exceptionally well, and they will be protected for longer than they would be protected if they were average performers. This is natural, but not laudable or to be encouraged.
