barneyfifesbullet: The funny thing about the situation is watching the obligatory internet tough guy lynch mob shake their tiny fists.

REMOVE EVERYTHING NOW! TEAR DOWN EVERYTHING NOW! NOW DAMMIT 'CAUSE WE SAY SO!


I don't think you quite understand what's being asked. The 'lynch mob', as you call it (and in which I include myself), sees a major if not the primary, number-one factor in this being allowed to happen being the sheer power and influence of the football program at Penn State. The football program was simply too powerful to go against, and the coverup was conducted to protect the football program. It is clear, at least to us, that what needs to happen is that if there is to be any assurance that this will never happen at Penn State again, the Penn State football program needs to be made drastically less powerful. If it is allowed to remain powerful, this all might happen again.

And how do you make a sub-professional football program less powerful? You shut the damn thing down and make it go through a long period of sucking once it comes back.

That is what is being asked. And it's exasperating to have to keep explaining this to a goddamn personality cult.

there are a LOT of PSU folks who *hate* that political cartoon.

I know. I read the comments beneath it.


FTC

On today's campuses, one of the most damaging accusations that can be made against anyone in authority is that he/she is a homophobe. Perhaps Joe Paterno could not sort out the difference between pedophilia (taboo) and homosexuality (celebrated).

That has got to be a troll.

RedPhoenix122: Weaver95: Sandusky can look forward to a lifetime in solitary confinement. if they put him in general population, he'd be dead before lunch time.

Nah, pretty sure he wouldn't be dead until he was made everyone's biatch.


Unless all the former PSU players in prison got to him first.

jdcgonzalez: Tommy Moo: Lsherm: Yeah, seriously, the thread about the statue gets canned but THIS gets lit? WTF?

Maybe they can put in rape buttons.

Like I said in another thread: my bounty currently stands at $100 on the statue. Other Farkers can feel free to add to that amount. If it gets high enough, someone won't be able to resist smashing the head off the thing.

Im in for another 50.

/I'm just serious


I'd prefer to see someone cover Paterno's head in an American flag like soldiers did to Saddam's statue before tearing it down. But I'd be cool for another $50.

UNAUTHORIZED FINGER: Cinaed: I'm more interested in what the REST of the major sports schools are doing right now.

PSU stands in the unfortunate position of being an example for what I halfway suspect has happened at a lot of other places, to a lot of other kids, over many many years.

Unfortunate? This may have happened elsewhere, but Penn State COVERED IT UP! Big difference.


Thank you. I farking hate the excuse 'it could happen anywhere' people are using for Pedo State. But there's no farking evidence it happened anywhere else, which is why we're talking about Penn State. And even if it did happen anywhere else, I doubt any other school's coach and admins would be so callous as to disregard rape victims for years and cover it up. PSU would be off the hook if Curley, Spanier, Schultz and Paterno had done the right thing over a decade ago and reported it. I hate this cliche, but this is a classic case where it's the cover-up and not the crime itself that's going to fark PSU for years.

Ken VeryBigLiar: could they at least throw them out of the B1G?


That's what I thought. I'm guessing PSU is too big a cashcow for the B1G to do anything, but I would love it if the rest of the B1G didn't want to be associated with the school and gave them the boot.

There are a LOT MORE non-PSU folks who *hate* the events that happened that facilitated the creation of that political cartoon.
