Thursday: "Release the report, act shocked."
Friday :" Discuss the reaction to the report."
Saturday: "Discuss the reaction to the reaction to the report"
Sunday: "What were talking about again?"

I really gave Joe the benefit of the doubt with all this but after seeing the report it looks like he was a main character in the cover up. I have been very surprised by all the comments online on new stories of people still defending him like oh its not that bad his good stuff cancels it out. This attitude is what is responsible for the cover up in the first place.

the Michael Jackson "king of pop" center for paying off your victims

It wasn't Nike as much as it was their CEO. I doubt Phil Knight would have done this.
 
2012-07-13 12:55:16 PM
yeah, i'm going to go ahead and say that the center should be renamed. good move nike. now about those ugly ass uniforms you keep forcing on schools...

/or go all out trolling and rename it the jerry sandusky center.

Phil Knight can't backtrack from his man love of Joe Paterno fast enough...

I dunno, I think the staff would really get a kick out of all the jokers coming in and asking for children to rape. And also if they have any showers on site available for those who want to rape quickly and then be on their way.

I think any business executive would realize a name change was required.

JoePa was definitely the smartest person tied to the Sandusky scandal. He had the good sense to die when it all blew up.

"...may be the butt of..." I see what subby did there.
 
2012-07-13 01:00:55 PM
I'll admit when I saw that on the news last night here I laughed. They were asking for people's reactions at the downtown Nike store. After watching some interviews I was reminded there are many very stupid people in this world and they don't all hang out in the Politics tab.

Sandusky is sitting in jail all pissed off that Paterno was holding out on him.

"He had more kids available?!"
 
2012-07-13 01:02:03 PM
: sigh: Sandusky stories...always coming up in the rear for news of the day.

I am not trying to rub salt in the wound but I am genuinely curious how you didn't think he was involved? It seemed to me it was obvious he was involved from the beginning. Do you think you had a prejudice because you were a fan of the team?

PowerSlacker: Phil Knight can't backtrack from his man love of Joe Paterno fast enough...


FTFA :
But on Thursday, Knight released a statement saying: "Throughout Joe Paterno's career, he strived to put young athletes in a position to succeed and win in sport but most importantly in life. Joe influenced thousands of young men to become better leaders, fathers and husbands. According to the investigation, it appears Joe made missteps that led to heartbreaking consequences. I missed that Joe missed it, and I am extremely saddened on this day. My love for Joe and his family remains."

Snarkers can't comment without reading the story fast enough.

/Reading is fundamental.
 
2012-07-13 01:07:25 PM
Sandusky wrote an autobiography called "touched". The jokes quota for this story is already filled.

He didn't backtrack as much as I thought or as much as he should have.

How about the Dan White LGBT Center for Tolerance and Understanding.
 
2012-07-13 01:12:20 PM
The opportunity is there for them to name it after Derek Zoolander. Don't let us down Nike

Ned Stark: Sandusky wrote an autobiography called "touched". The jokes quota for this story is already filled.


To be fair, he could've titled that book "Gallimaufry; A Tale of Leviathan Minutiae" or something equally random and we'd find a way to make wisecracks about it.
 
2012-07-13 01:14:27 PM
Maybe they should rename it the Jerry Sandusky Small Penis Masturbation Center and put a sign at the front walk that the main entrance is in the rear.
 
2012-07-13 01:16:02 PM
One day, we'll have a permanent colony on the Moon, and then we can build the Ralph Kramden Lunar Domestic Violence Shelter there.
 
2012-07-13 01:16:34 PM
After this while scandal keeps giving and giving, I have to wonder if the guys that make Sandusky brand office furniture are pondering a rebranding.

Naming the childcare center after Peyton Manning would be a great idea if for no other reason than it'll give us all a laugh remembering that United Way commercial.

Nike CEO Phil Knight said "Joe [Paterno] made missteps that led to heartbreaking consequences."

The consequences were not only heartbreaking but also butthurting.
 
2012-07-13 01:21:56 PM
This whole story i one of the worst things (probably the worst) thing I've heard in sports. Come on NCAA, how come players selling jerseys worse than pedophilia? Absolutely disgusting.
 
2012-07-13 01:22:05 PM
Really only have to change one word.

Joe Paterno Child Development Endangerment Center
