I think JoPa and Sandusky liked to play towel in the showers. I hope that this 5 million is available to be awarded to the victims in the civil case.

What a scum bag.

Rot in hell Paterno.

I still have the creepy feeling that Sandusky was the strawman or fall guy that took the hit for a much larger and complex group. He certainly seems dumb enough.

I have no doubt he was the one molesting children. Look at some of his OWN testimony, guy's a freaking creep for sure. If a larger conspiracy exists (and to some extent I believe it did) it was only sweep the whole thing under the rug and save the football program from disgrace. I get the impression that the football program had little to no oversight and JoePa had his own little fiefdom there and was EITHER 1. A doddering old man (even at the time) incapable of knowing how to handle the situation properly, or 2. A sociopath so focused on football that NOTHING else mattered and the program had to be protected at all costs, even if that meant child abuse.

Either way, he wasn't the hero that so many there have made him out to be over the years, that much is for sure.

It's becoming more and more clear that he was much more the 2nd option than the first.

I believe there is much more to all this but many people are too afraid or intimidated to come forward and make it public. Hey, Sandusky and Paterno are out of the picture so we can keep our secrets, right?

I'd say it's pretty clear at this point that it was #2.

When the President of the University goes to your house to demand you resign and you refuse to (twice, no less) you are no doddering, powerless old fool. The only doddering thing about Joe was what he allowed to happen to children. His name should be forever ruined and I hope the rest of those still waiting on trial for this spend a lot of time jail. I also hope the children (most are adults now) affected in this have come to terms with their past and can move on, at least as best as possible. Also more and more info is coming out that his program was just as bad as the rest but he had the power to keep it all under wraps

I still think PSU needs to completely dismantle its football program for at least 5 years.

When was the last time we had a celebrity/someone in the public eye fall this far? I guess it'd be OJ, but Paterno was definitely more well respected than OJ.

I'm just shocked that someone is getting paid millions to coach a college football team. What the fark? It's college football. What do you need? A degree in physical education?

"Oi, throw the ball over there, and then you, yeah you, you catch it. Now where is my golden toilet? I need to take a dump."

Wanna get the creepy out of that last paragraph? Death Penalty PSU football, otherwise it just shows none of the other NCAA schools are even fazed by allowing PSU, a school that facilitated child rape, as a peer.

Yeah, it's soooo easy to coach football! Plus, these programs raise tens of million of dollars for their schools and use that and booster money to pay coaches. Not sure why you would care if that's the case.

This. There's nothing particular special about winning football games. Lots of guys can do that. And high graduation rates, etc. are cute and all, but as Dan Wetzel said, those players would have done just as well if they had played for coaches like Bobby Bowden, Lou Holtz or Tom Osborne. It's not hard to graduate players when they (deservedly, since they aren't paid a salary) have all the academic support they could need just handed to them on a silver platter. The same can't be said for Sandusky's victims; Paterno helped destroy the lives of kids who had no advantages at all. He's a complete disgrace. I don't understand Paterno defenders who can't grasp this.

I wouldn't give them the death penalty. I'd make them pay every dollar they make off of football to the victims for the next 10 years. The victims would make enough money to retire at age 40.

I saw that but my jaded self could only conclude 1) Bobby said that because he happens to be #2 in wins all time behind Paterno, and 2) Bobby stopped short of saying more because of his own program's skeletons that have not yet seen the light of day. Likely nothing like PSU (thank goodness) but you just never know now.

And the Penn State Trustees have said they won't do that for now. I don't think that statue will be visible at the start of the upcoming season (either it's taken down or covered up).

What does it say about this institution that the BoT are willing to leave the statue to their false idol up? Kinda makes a PSU degree roughly equivalent to a couple squares of Charmin.

They just now removed the halo on the PSU mural featuring Joe Pa. I dunno why. When they painted out Sandusky they replaced him with a blue ribbon. Presumably for his work with kids.
They really are accomplished at coverups there though .
 
2012-07-14 08:55:50 PM  
Oh yeah, despite the link being solely a Joe Paterno story, specifically that he was an enormous hypocrite who couldn't spell "morals" if they were written on the lenses of his goofy-ass coke bottle glasses, allow me to provide the defense.

Something something McQueary something something witch-hunt something something innocent businesses and football players something something bloodlust something something program already decimated something something football will begin the healing.

Owangotang: Statue stays



And why wouldnt it? As near as I can tell from FARK the Penn Staters are not ashamed of what Joe Pa did at all. Apparently, by word and deed they could not be any prouder of him
 
2012-07-14 09:06:46 PM  
I hope the statue does stay - frankly it shows how dumb the Paterno loyalists are to even want it to remain. To everyone outside of that bubble, it's just a reminder of a hypocrite who covered up for 14 years of pedophilia.

Those people are pitiful, plain and simple.
