Young troubled teenage boys in College Station can feel safer now.
Sad. Everything that happened is just sad. Wish he could have gone out more dignified.
Frick him. What's sad is JoePa (among several others) sitting on/covering up child molestation for over a decade. There's no dignified way to acknowledge he did nothing while that went down on his watch.
This is exactly where we are at, dead on: To everyone that is hushing the Gruden talk, stop it, there IS a deal in place...
He died as he lived, failing to stop a cancer.
They are never going to be safe in College Station.
Is it really necessary to pre-empt all other coverage to talk about Paterno's death? He was 85, which is past the American average age. ESPN is covering this because of what a deranged old man did to young boys in a shower on the Penn State campus and that Paterno did nothing about.And now they read a statement issued by Sandusky on the air. Great job, ESPN. The headline should be "Child sexual abusers everywhere mourn the death of Joe Paterno, one of the greatest enablers in history."
They would have done the same had the rape stuff not come out. Suggesting otherwise shows a poor grasp of how the sports media operates. And an obvious lack of understanding of how well liked the guy was. You act as if they would have done a ho hum 15 minute posthumous career review and went right back to talking about why the Knicks suck. We as outsiders look at the horrid cover up and cannot stand and listen to people gush about this man as if he were the pope. That is fine and I agree it is terrible that such people exist in the world and act as if the law and decency don't apply to them. So far as we know, JoePa falls into this category even if he failed to comprehend the implications as they unfolded. The media is not going to pile on any more than they already have...way too many in the Penn State family would disagree with the way he was let go. Not all of those people are evil ass frickers, some just don't want to see what is right in front of them, Joe included.
If you want credit for all the wins and hold on to all that power even when it is obvious that you are placing yourself above the institution you profess to "love" and doing more harm than good to it, well then it's on you too if the whole thing goes to crap.
