Two Little Debbies and a cup of coffee
No question. Of course most of us had the common sense to know this was a complete cover up with Joe Paterno in charge, not the president of AD. Joe Paterno ran Penn St. and he called the shots. The man knew exactly what was going on with Sandusky and not only did he fail to do anything to stop it, he did so for the reason of protecting the brand of Penn St. football. We didnt need an FBI man to do an 8 month investigation. This interview sums it up nicely. Craig Carton had common sense months ago as most of us did....................

Unlike what Matt Millen is still trying to say on ESPN that you have to think about all the good Paterno did, you really dont. This unspeakable act demonstrates Paterno's full character. This act supercedes any good he did. As anyone can see, the so called "good" things Paterno did were nothing more than a way to boost him and his program in the eyes of others. We can plainly see what Paterno really cared about. It certainly wasnt the well being of children. Paterno cared only about himself and the well being of that damn football program, which btw has completely blown for quite sometime now. And while some of you may think that dosent matter, I think it should be considered that by the time all of this Sandusky stuff went down, Penn St football wasnt any good anymore. It wasnt the 80s. It was almost 2000 when Paterno couldve put Sandusky down. So at the time, Paterno was protecting a program that was terrible anyway. Utter disgrace.
At this point, anyone who supports Joe Paterno is PRO child rape. Plain and simple. There is no defending it anymore. Hell, there was really no defending it month ago when this story came out. Common sense combined with the facts that we had then told you that Paterno covered this up to protect the brand. Everyone knew Paterno called the shots at Penn St and knew everything that went on there. The man let Sandusky show up at a closed practice with a little kid. Sickening.
The statue should definately come down. No more kind words need spoken about what a great guy Paterno was and how he did all these great things. Joe Paterno was a horrible person...PERIOD. Was he a good football coach... well its difficult to say otherwise. The man won a lot of games at Penn St and he did build that program that for a while was very good. But, he isnt a good person. He isnt this great guy that wanted to help the community and cared about all these people like so many have stated. He cared about himself and that football program. Thats it. That is fully demonstrated by his actions. One of the best sayings ever is "your actions speak so loud I cant hear a word your saying". Paterno's actions here paint the picture. He is a scumbag.
I saw a lady a few weeks ago while I was on vacation wearing a shirt that stated "Coach Paterno. One thing...... THANK YOU." I wanted to vomit. That lady is pro child rape. Had I not been with my children, I wouldve stopped her and called her on it. You simply cant support Paterno at this point. Well, you can but you would have to be morally corrupt yourself.
If the statue dosent come down, Penn St and its supporters are pro child rape.
