I guess football is more important than child rape.

"I did. And Joe Paterno should not have been fired."

You much be a fracking wuss then. Really? "Oh no, I told my boss, my hands are clean of it!" Grow a pair. Paterno knew it was happening, and refused to stop it. He said as much.

There's a reason Sandusky will end up in a special prison. Sometimes the real world needs a little prison justice, and Paterno along with the whole Penn State crew (Yes, McQueary should be fired as well) lacked the manhood to administer it, let alone stop the reason it was necessary.

@msieg007, I guess we'll have to agree to disagree. Like I said, I don't think Paterno is a bad guy, but in my opinion he could have done more. Honestly though with a scandal of this magnitude, the University had to clean house and get rid of all involved, this is already a huge black eye for Penn State.

"I suggest before making comments go read the 23 page Grand Jury report."

I did. And Joe Paterno should not have been fired.

Potential of real jail time, potential prison rape and expulsion for defending an accessory to child abuse. Keep it classy bitches.

Gerry1of1- Hitler's thugs used something of the same excuse. Didn't sit well with me then, doesn't sit well with me now.
Also, with the extremely poor history of ALL colleges and universities- and their rentacops- regarding rapes, which is fairly common knowledge, I'm sure that Barney Fife would fit right in.
So, given your chain of command theory, what does one do after reporting to university officials, and nothing has changed? Shrug it off and say "oh, well"? Or see to it that a threat is properly investigated and removed?
Bottom line, sports programs tout building moral character, but are all but absent.

Alot of people commenting seem misinformed. Joe Pa was very good friends with this man for over 30 years, Sandusky was his heir apparent. There is no way Joe didn't notice things in all those years especially since he was ALWAYS with young boys everywhere he went and having them spending the night at his home. I suggest before making comments go read the 23 page Grand Jury report. On more than one occasion Sandusky's activity's were reported. The response from Paterno and the others was to take his locker room keys and ban him from bringing kids on campus. This man was more concerned about protecting his legacy than protecting those kids. I don't think Paterno is a bad guy I just think he made very bad choices. He was the Captain of the ship, all this happened on his watch, he had to go, they had to clean house.
And the Assistant who witnessed the shower incident still has a job because he is the whistleblower they can't fire him.

Defending Paterno isn't acceptable. Perhaps some of you don't have the full story, but you're an absolute idiot if you know Paterno was told of an incident, but failed to put Sandusky in a full body cast.

Listening to ESPN radio, and a Pittsburgh reporter is now claiming Sandusky was pimping out these boys to high profile individuals.

Paterno is the Pope of his catholic church, and when the Pope does nothing when one of his cardinals goes a raping, he deserves a lot more than a firing. Ideally, Sandusky won't be the only man seeing a jail cell.

As a Big 10 student myself, I can say it's sad to see the legend of Joe Pa fired. The Penn State board did what they had to do though. I just hope Paterno's legacy is known through his 46 years of service to the Nittany Lions.

If someone came to me and said "Hey I saw a guy raping a little boy." I'd tell him to call the cops. Then, I'd go find the guy who did the deed, pop him in the mouth, and call the cops myself.

There is no chain of command when little kids lives are at stake.

@duckboy87

you are an idiot because a)child rape is a pretty serious accusation for a police officer to laugh about b) Covering it up worked so well for the "higher" ups

@ DuckBoy87 & AJ - do you know what your co-workers are up to. All the time? Every day?

Whenever a perv is discovered everyone says the same thing "I never would have thought HE was one! He was such a nice neighbor!"

Monsters are masters of camoflauge.

CaptKangaroo - Standard policy in any school, you report to the Principal / Dean / Whoever's in charge and they call the cops. He reported someone told him they saw someone else "rough housing" with boys.

But the media isn't paying any attention to the guy who actually walked in on and witnessed this. No they're following and herassing a 3rd party. A NON-witness? How much sense does that make?

I'm not easy on pedo-pervs. Shoot them in the balls. But let's not make a villain out of some harmless old man.

Wow. What a bunch of dumbf*cks. Caring more about goddamn football than children being raped. This country sucks.

Whoa, I assumed they were protesting because the school had covered up the pedophilia, not because the guy who covered it up got fired. That's awful, people suck.

Auburnjunky and I agree on...well, we don't agree on just about anything...but we agree on this.

If you think Joe Paterno was unjustly fired because he didn't know enough about what what his child-raping assistant coach was doing for 23 years, you have your head up your ass.

AJ, this is the one time I'll disagree with you.

But regardless of what has happened, and what didn't happen, Paterno was made a scapegoat.
Had Paterno gone to the proper authorities with hearsay, which does not hold up in a court of law, they would have a) laughed their asses off and sent him away, or b) launch an investigation about it, which would piss off Paterno's boss, and the hire ups, resulting in him getting canned anyway. He was damned if he did and he's being damned for not doing.




And this is why Pitt is better.

Gerry1of1- Telling a university cop is NOT the same thing as telling the chief of police, or ANY real cop. He may not have seen anything, but he heard reports of child abuse. Common sense dictates that you tell a cop- not some rent-a-badge at your school.
As for these morons who feel impassioned to riot, I guess that American universities have gone from the S.D.S(Students for a Democratic Society), to the S.R.P.(Students for Rapist Pedophiles). Almost makes me happy that upon graduating, these morons will be tens of thousands of dollars in debt for years, and come away with a substandard education. But really, what price can you put on four years of post high school partying?

WTF was the purpose of that? The media isn't the one who was raping little boys.
