Serves him right. Rot in hell, Joe.

Now if they could just remove Sandusky as permanently.

/...and some "students" are still defending him?
//Not even defending, just claiming he doesnt deserve this.
///The're wrong - he deserved this and so much more

They're still keeping his name on the library. They really don't get it.

Should move it to sanduskys cell
 
2012-07-22 08:26:04 AM  
I went with the "storing it in a secure to cover it up for 12-14 years". It was either that or moving the statue to the library as a reminder to all that you should keep quiet.

No, they are just going to cover it up for 14 years.

Checked out the live feed for about 5 minutes, I turned it off after a rousing chorus of "We Are!" being screamed by people. Seriously, being this disillusioned by anything with all this evidence staring you squarely in the face is just ridiculous.

FTA: "I'm extremely disappointed with how they are doing it," Berkon said. "JoePa means the world to a lot of students, and they should have a right to be here."

WTF is wrong with you?

You're sorry that they're taking down the statue of a guy who turned a blind eye to a child rapist and feel like anything else he did made up for that fact?

This countries obsession with its organized sports has gone well past the point of reason and sanity.

I'm only sorry there's no such thing as a hell for this man to go to now that he's dead. I'm double damn sorry there's not one for Sandusky to go to.

LOL. Looks like a cover-up.

Instead of melting it down. Like I said: they don't get it.
 
2012-07-22 08:29:37 AM  
I wouldn't call it "Rousing"... it was actually quite pathetic. I was fantasizing that they would actually applaud the removal. I'm such a schmuck.
 
2012-07-22 08:30:14 AM  
They're keeping Paterno's name on the Penn State library though.

Seems fitting... will remind all library users to keep quiet.

A moment later, a man in the crowd started a "We are Penn State" chant.


I don't know what the "We are Penn State" chant is, but I bet it involves rhythmic slap-slap-slapping sounds.

Melt it down and recast the bronze into plaques detailing Sandusky's crimes and the complicity of Joe Paterno and Penn's Administrators in the coverup and mount them where the statue was.

Everytime I hear that "WE ARE" shiat I get all stabby

They'll need a new statue in its place.

Taking it down is the right thing to do, and taking it down at a time inconvenient to student rioting is the right thing to do.

Some media outlets here in PA are screaming about the timing being "another cover-up" -- only because they don't have cameras on-site.

They should have taken the statue down Saddam Hussein style:

All the victims of Sandusky pull the statue down, then they take off their shoes and smack the statue.

Some Farker said it in an earlier Sandoosky thread and it really resonated with me... This is why grown-ups shouldn't have heroes.

The JoePalogists quoted in TFA sound like complete nimrods. Suck it up, people. Your hero done farked up. Big time. The higher we put mortals on a pedestal, the farther they have to fall.
 
2012-07-22 08:52:21 AM  
The problem that Penn State has is that many alumni are probably fighting, and Paterno himself was a big donor.

They need to come to terms with the fact that the university needs to take his name off everything and return money donated if needed.

Universities are as grsedy as the richest traders in Wall St. these days.

A lot of the student body and school supporters just don't seem to get it. They think their football program and a winning career makes up for anything. This just seems like more reason for the NCAA to give the football program the death penalty for a few years. Maybe then the seriousness of what happened will actually become clear to these people.

"We Stand By Joe" and "There is Nothing More Frightful than Ignorance in Action."

They got the second part right. They're living reminders of it
 
2012-07-22 08:57:34 AM  
Amazing that people around the area still think the statue should stand...
... of course this is the same town where Victim #1 got death threats & had to be placed in the witness relocation program after coming forward about Sandusky.

Before today, I wasn't sure if PSU deserved the death penalty.... after reading some of the comments on the article from locals, I REALLY think they need to kill the whole program.

"They're moving it to the elementary school locker room. Where jopa would have wanted to be."

Nothing but symbolism. Nothing but another chance for the witch-hunters to take pot shots at people who dare have an opinion different from theirs.
 
2012-07-22 09:02:42 AM  
It looks like at this point, on the Penn State campus and among their devoted fanbase, Joe Paterno is still worshipped as an idol, some kind of symbol of the perfect virtuous football coach. These people have been practically raised to see him as a sort of "Dear Leader" figure, except of a College Sports program and not a country.

To everyone else, everywhere else, he was a man who turned a blind eye to child abuse & molestation. Outside that little bubble in Pennsylvania, Joe Paterno's name is mud and will always be that way.

Funny thing is, he really did have a great reputation before this. If the Sandusky scandal hadn't broken, and he still died when he did, he would have been practically canonized by the entire college football community.
 
2012-07-22 09:02:56 AM  
A local sport's bar could buy it so those who still support him can drink toasts to their hero.
