And There Goes Joe Paterno’s Legacy

We Are! Rape State!

Penn State Football's New Legacy Read More »

If you’ve been following the Penn State/Jerry Sandusky over the past few days, you may have noticed Joe Paterno‘s family basically losing it in the media over the Freeh Report, an investigation by former FBI director Louis Freeh into why Penn State dropped the ball on reporting Sandusky to authorities. So either Paterno’s family had inside information on what the report would contain even though nobody has read it until this morning when it was released to the public, or they were going on the emails leaked to CNN earlier in the month that indicated Joe Paterno had discussions with athletic director Tim Curley and Penn State president Graham Spanier about handling the situation “humanely” i.e. not calling the police and just telling Sandusky to take his kid raping elsewhere. Which probably explains how an opinion letter Paterno supposedly wrote to his players before his death was magically leaked to the press yesterday, but that’s nothing compared to the words the Paterno family is about to eat from their statement to the Patriot News on Tuesday:

Joe Paterno did not cover up for Jerry Sandusky. Joe Paterno did not know that Jerry Sandusky was a pedophile. Joe Paterno did not act in any way to prevent a proper investigation of Jerry Sandusky. To claim otherwise is a distortion of the truth.

So guess what the Freeh report found out? Joe Paterno knew about Jerry Sandusky molesting a child in 1998, three years before the Mike McQueary incident. Which makes that the SECOND known case of Joe Paterno finding out about child rape and looking the other way to protect Penn State. So here’s a link to the full 267 page Freeh report and below are some highlights from the press release that are pretty fucking damning:

What People Not Blinded By Hero Worship Could’ve Already Told You:
“Taking into account the available witness statements and evidence, it is more reasonable to conclude that, in order to avoid the consequences of bad publicity, the most powerful leaders at Penn State University – Messrs. Spanier, Schultz, Paterno and Curley – repeatedly concealed critical facts relating to Sandusky’s child abuse from the authorities, the Board of Trustees, Penn State community, and the public at large. Although concern to treat the child abuser humanely was expressly stated, no such sentiments were ever expressed by them for Sandusky’s victims.”

Joe Paterno Didn’t Want To Interrupt People’s Weekend By Reporting Child Rape:
“We also know that he delayed reporting Sandusky’s sexual conduct because Mr. Paterno did not “want to interfere” with people’s weekend. To his credit, Mr. Paterno stated on November 9, 2011, ‘With the benefit of hindsight, I wish I had done more.’”

And The Nail In The Coffin
“The evidence shows that these four men also knew about a 1998 criminal investigation of Sandusky relating to suspected sexual misconduct with a young boy ina Penn State football locker room shower. Again, they showed no concern about that victim. The evidence shows that Mr. Paterno was made aware of the 1998 investigation of Sandusky, followed it closely, but failed to take any action, even though Sandusky had been a key member of his coaching staff for almost 30 years, and had an office juststeps away from Mr. Paterno’s. At the very least, Mr. Paterno could have alerted the entire football staff, in order to prevent Sandusky from bringing another child into the Lasch Building.”

The silence from Paterno apologists is pretty deafening right now, but I’m sure they’ll say something along the lines of him being dead and isn’t able to defend himself. Which is horseshit because up until he died, Joe Paterno continued to whitewash his actions, the guilt of which more than likely killed him. You would think an honorable, 10-feet-tall titan of American exceptionalism would’ve confessed on his deathbed and begged for forgiveness, but he was Catholic so just assume this happened:

JOE: Father, has my family left?
PRIEST: Yes, Joe. It’s just you and me now.
JOE: There’s something I need to confess, but first, how good are at you keeping child rape a secret?
PRIEST: God, you’re a dick.
JOE: Haha! Gotcha. But, seriously though, I knew about Jerry the whole time. *croaks*

    I don’t understand why so many people are so desperate to ruin an old man’s legacy. Why can’t people just forgive and forget?

    • Dude of Dudes

      Because his legacy allowed innocent children to have an old dirty man’s penis shoved into their colon. But you are right. Go Team BUTTSEX!

    • Lisatlantic

      You can’t be serious. You just can’t.

    • And I can’t fathom why you’re more concerned about Papa Joe’s legacy then the innocence of little boys…

    • Why don’t we all take turns fucking you in the ass, and see how quickly you forgive and forget.

    • Yatz

      Is that supposed to be a joke? Not funny.

    • Youareanidiot

      How about we give this guy the chance to take a nice loooonnng shower with Jerry Sandusky? I’m sure they can swap lots of Paterno stories…

    • missyS

      Only an asshole would make a comment like that.

    • Jerube

      Becuz … from now on anyone who defends PSU accepts that raping children is an understandable action. Or I should say, YOU seem to think it’s reasonable (not a compliment). Just incase your Jerry Sandusky’s wife.

    • guttboy

      Your sentiments reveal what is wrong with America and sports in general. Please take your opinions where they belong, like some mindless blog sports blog….

    • Bee

      You might be the stupidest person on the internet today…congratulations.

    • El Jefe

      NittanyFan,

      From the bottom of my heart, FUCK YOU.

    • PeopleSuck

      Because the man’s legacy isn’t more important than the children he allowed to be abused. I’m hoping your kidding, but there are so many assholes in the world, I fear that you are not.

    • USDA Prime McBeef

      I’m guessing that 87 means you were born in 1987. Putting you at 24/25 years old now and 12 when Sandusky was feeding it up your ass.

      I bet you liked it.

    • lily

      what is the matter with you? as a former penn state student myself, its people like you that continue to tarnish the schools name. rot in hell with paterno and the rest of them.

    • nittanyfanlikesbuttsex

      Something tells me you are the one giving the thumbs down to each response. :)) I just feel sorry for you cos that is the way you think. I sincerely hope you don’t get ass raped to learn the absurdity of your view.

    • Nick

      Nittany Fan, take your first born son and go out and find a stranger and let the stranger fuck your kid in the ass, then forgive him. Joe Paterno allowed that kind of shit happen for MORE THAN A DECADE. Fuck you.

    • Leila

      Are you fucking kidding me? If you are kidding, it’s a gross and un-funny joke considering the context. If you are NOT kidding, you must know that it is exactly people like you that are motivating me to urge that every single reference to Joe Paterno as anything but a child-rapist-enabler be burned to the ground.

      • Tony has done it again. Gotten everyone all hot and bothered by a comment. I guarantee you that nobody in their right mind would put a statement like that out.

    • Judas Iscariot

      Because Paterno is as guilty as Sandusky for the rape of those children. I hope he is burning in Hell…which is impossible because I don’t believe in that shit…so maybe his spirit can be trapped in some spirit rape center where he is raped forever. Seems fitting for a wayward spirit. Spirits of suicide “victims” are wayward, right?

    • bondbabe

      Because he showed no concern and KNOWINGLY did nothing for the rape victims while he was ALIVE, why should we show concern for his legacy after he’s dead?

    • callem like i see em

      troll so hard.

    • CranAppleSnapple

      I want to punch Nittany in the face.

    • Terry

      Forgive and forget huh. How would you have liked if Joe stood around and watched as Jerry jizzed all over your kid in the locker room?. Or got him drunk with some Jesus juice the way Micahel Jackson used to get his young dingalings loose.

    • TOT304

      NITTANY fan. youre a fucking moron. Youre obviously completely retarded and unsympathetic to child abuse, child molestation and child RAPE. How can you possibly support someone who allowed this to happen right under his nose? what would you have done?!? he COULD HAVE prevented DOZENS of victims! Youre a sick fuck!

    • mk

      You’re a fucking idiot.

    • Proteus

      I’d enjoy stomping on the old man’s balls, knees and face, if
      he wasn’t dead already. What a twat you are. CHILD RAPE,
      asshole. (Plus, an entire culture built on football is really queer,
      sick and kind of retarded. Even without the entire thing resting on
      a mountain raped anuses. Some “honor”).

      Bulldoze Penn State flat and sow the ground with salt. And ban
      football as a sport for rapist fascist retards.

  2. Dude of Dudes

    “With the benefit of hindsight, I wish I had done more.” Im not sure Id use the work hindsight when talking about the buttsex….

  3. bbiowa

    Let’s see, legacy vs. child assrape… hmm.. You’re right. Equal. Forgive and forget.

  4. cc

    Just another episode to add to the compendium of reasons why I treat religion and people who tout religion with contempt.

    • Jetfire

      This has nothing to do with religion. It’s just the old boys club protecting one of their own.

      • PeopleSuck

        The Catholic Church IS an old boys club protecting its own. (Which is not to say I’m down on religion — I just do not support organized religion. Get a group of power hungry men together and something bad is bound to happen. Period.)

      • @ Jetfire> You do realize you just described almost every single religion on earth, right?

      • Jetfire

        Actually, I described about every group or organization on the planet. Ie. political party, Police force, Company/Corp., Club, Sport Org., Home Owner Ass., Union, Etc. This has nothing to do with Religion or Church.
        It was the Sports department and Admin covering up to not look bad.

    • RapeState

      What does this have to do with religion?

    • cc

      It’s about religion because the proponents in this case were the usual church every Sunday types, who seemed to forget all about decency and humanity when it suited them. Something common to bible-thumpers.

      • RapeState

        That is a ridiculously generic assumption and speaks much more to your issues than theirs. I’m not defending in ANY way what Paterno, Sandusky, or any of the others involved with covering it up did, but to jump to the conclusion that they are all religious and that played a role in this? Way over the top.

      • You do realize that whether they are indecent and/or inhumane people has absolutely nothing to do with their religion. You can’t blame the religion for the shortcomings of its followers.

      • cc

        Actually, I can blame religion for a lot of things, child abuse being one of them. The Catholic Church covered up for pederasts for decades (a proven fact).

      • The “Catholic Church” is a group of people. And I’ll readily submit that some of those people have done bad things, including abusing children. But guess what? Atheists and agnostics have abused children as well. Bad people do bad things. You don’t have to be a member of a church to be corrupt, and being a member of a church doesn’t make you corrupt. If you’re upset that horrible people use religion to justify horrible conduct, that’s fine. So am I. Don’t blame the weapon; blame the person brandishing it.

      • Jeff Glass, while atheists and agnostics may indeed rape children, they don’t do it as employees within the confines of a corporate power structure that not only provides them with victims, but covers up their crimes when they’re discovered. Stop being so disingenuous – the Catholic Church is more than just a “group of people”. It wasn’t some nebulous “group of people” that’s been giving Bernard Law a haven from prosecution for the past decade.

        No, you don’t have to be a member of a church to be corrupt – but in this case, it helps.

      • I may be many things, but disingenuous I am not. I never once suggested the group was nebulous. You may know better than I the individuals responsible for preventing Law’s prosecution, but at the end of the day, it is a discrete group of people, whether acting alone or in concert with others. And I think you’re missing my real point. I’m not trying to make light of the Catholic church by calling it a “group of people.” I know full well the power it commands, and how far-reaching its grasp is. My point was simply that we need to hold people accountable as individuals, rather than focus on an institution they manipulate or hide behind. Religion doesn’t have to be pernicious, and it’s unfortunate that it becomes that way with the wrong people at the helm.

      • It’s NOT about religion, unless by “religion” you mean “football”. Conflating the two by asserting that all these guys went to church every Sunday is ridiculous – it avails you nothing and actually weakens any valid argument you might have.

        Penn’s administrators were actually worse than the Catholic Church – who thought that was possible? At least the priests who were discovered to be preying on children were sent on retreat so they could supposedly repent and reaffirm their faith. Then they were sent to a different diocese and a fresh load of victims. Penn didn’t even bother to put up a pretense to that sort of lip service.

      • I actually think that it is appropriate to conflate football with religion. Seriously, do you remember how people were reacting when this shit first blew up? Holding candlelight vigils, throwing riots, and general outrage for Paterno because “people were after his legacy”

        Granted, I doubt that’s what cc meant, but I do think it’s an apt comparison.

        Also both Paterno and Sandusky were Catholic, so there’s that.

      • Comparison is one thing, conflating the two so that one can’t stand idependent of the other is not. cc stated that because Paterno and the Penn admin were Sunday-church-going people, therefore they looked the other way at rape – so it’s really about religion. Total train wreck of logic. Never mind the utter lack of proof regarding and Sunday devotions, even if it’s true that’s a total post hoc fallacy topped off with an I-don’t-know-what-the fuck kicker.

        And if there’s one thing thing that isn’t needed here, it’s another phallus. Um, sorry, fallacy.

  5. JC

    If I were king, I’d make it a law that all statues, murals, or other artwork featuring JoePa (I’m assuming Penn State has many) must be changed so that he’s looking on, smiling, while a young child is molested nearby. I’d also require that all Penn State athletic facilities have the words “Rapey McRape” added to their official names, e.g., Rapey McRape Stadium, The Rapey McRape Memorial Swimming Pool, etc.

  6. RapeState

    NittanyFan87— Are you kidding me???? Let’s see how much you’d like to forgive and forget if it was your child being RAPED. All in the name of a fucking football program. That mf’er is lucky he’s dead.

  7. missyS

    It’s obvious to me that they all thought it wasn’t that big of a deal and probably had fantasies of doing it themselves. That is the only way to rationalize why they didn’t put a stop to it. They all should be arrested.

  8. scummbags

    Keep the Paterno statue and relocate it to a stadium restroom. Make a circular urinal so everyone can check each other out while they launch a stream at JoePa.

  9. zorbitor

    it’s like “what do we do with the Germans” after WWII

  10. EricLr

    Was this guy running a football team or a fucking kid’s harem? Seriously, who looks the other way on BUTT RAPE?!?!? I mean a DUI, maybe. A one-time domestic violence charge–possibly. But BUTT-RAPING LITTLE BOYS?!?!?

  12. Smapdi

    “At the very least, Mr. Paterno could have alerted the entire football staff, in order to prevent Sandusky from bringing another child into the Lasch Building.” – wtf is that? Its okay to rape, just don’t do it here?

    • “These individuals, unchecked by the Board of Trustees that did not perform its oversight duties, empowered Sandusky to attract potential victims to the campus and football events by allowing him to have continued, unrestricted and unsupervised access to the University’s facilities and affiliation with the University’s prominent football program. Indeed, that continued access provided Sandusky with the very currency that enabled him to attract his victims. ”

      Basically, their refusing to report him didn’t just let him know it was OK, they actually enabled him to attract future victims. Nothing like a loyal bunch of athletic supporters.

    A major criminal investigation does a good job of revealing character too.

  14. El Jefe

    I don’t know if you can try someone and convict someone posthumously, but if it is possible, this needs to happen to Joe Paterno.

  15. Shut down their football program. Ten years minimum.

    • El Jefe

      Agreed if Reggie Bush can be harassed and vilified and forced to turn in his Heisman trophy over taking some cash and you can’t even let someone buy you a sandwich when you are an athlete in the NCAA then this bullshit should have the most severe of consequences. I think 10 years is too little, they should be banned a minimum of 20 years and maybe even for life.

      Pete Rose did not rape any children or aid in the rape of any children and he is banned for life from baseball.

      • Nope

        Reggie bush was “harrassed and vilified” because he broke NCAA rules he was very much aware of, then lied to everyone about it. He’s not a babe in the woods; he helped bring down the USC football program with his greed, lying & entitlement. But, that was just the tip of the iceberg at SC; there were a lot of systemic problems there that the university happily turned a blind eye towards as long as they were winning. Just like Penn State & Paterno happily turned a blind eye towards Sandusky raping kids. SC deserved what they got; Penn State deserves 10x more…

      • Carnage

        I personally think that everything done at Penn State while Jerry Sandusky was there should be turned over and wiped from the history of the NCAA. This seems like a proper thing considering everything that happens to people who violate NCAA rules. Okay, so this guy was violating FEDERAL LAW. Pretty sure that’s a bit worse than some rules by the NCAA organization.

  16. Smapdi

    Someone should track down the celebrity apologists for Roman Polanski’s child rape, and ask them about this case, so that we can all see just how twisted up they are.

    • cc

      Don’t get me started on the idiocy of Polanski’s apologists.

      • Whoopie

        Hey, that is a totally different situation, it wasn’t “Rape” Rape

      • Nope

        So, drugging a 13 year old girl then fucking her up the ass while she’s incapacitated is not “rape rape”? You need to pull your head out of your “ass ass” and get a fucking “clue clue”…

      • Myfaceisugly

        Whoopie was making a joke about the insensitivity of Whoopie Goldberg when she said something about it not being rape-rape. Are you that anxious to be trolled?

      • Nope

        I thought that was a serious comment; I don’t watch Whoopie Goldberg at all, so I didn’t get the reference. Righteous anger put back in box… *backs away from computer*

      • Leila

        @whoopie–assuming you are referencing the w. goldberg idiocy. but for arguments sake, i would have to say that the comparison to sandusky might actually be unfair to that disgusting piece of shit. as far as i know, his victims were conscious and not drugged before being ass-raped. also, sandusky’s victims were not later painted as whores who deserved said rape. polanski is a scumbag, sandusky is filth, they both deserve each other and a lifetime of pain in jail.

  17. Nope

    Fuck Joe Paterno’s legacy. If we’re to believe the Freeh report, that asshole didn’t give 2 shits about the kids being raped by his disgusting pedophile assistant coach. He turned a blind eye to kids reporting being raped, and went so far as to tell Sandusky of the reports while still allowing him free reign, which put the kids at further danger. He didn’t care one bit about the kids being abused; he can rot in hell for all I care…

    • He not only didn’t do anything about McQueary’s eyewitness report of Sandusky’s raping that kid in the shower, he actually told Sandusky that McQueary had seen him. Sandusky was the only one who knew who the kid was – so not only did they not give two shits about the kid who’d been raped, they actually put him in further danger by telling his rapist he’d been seen. You can only guess what sort of intimidation that child was further subjected to.

      I say don’t just fire these douchebags without a pension and close the football program for however many years, I say tie them to a stake in the center of the stadium, torch it, and burn the whole fucking thing down to the ground. And then salt the earth.

      And don’t whine to me how that will punish innocent students. If you want an athetic scholarship, go elsewhere. The University doesn’t deserve to have any athletic programs since it’s clear they have no concept of how to run one. Not to mention that any team they had in the next two decades would be the subject of such scorn and ridicule that no one would want to play on it anyway.

  18. i don’t remember seeing the cause of Paterno’s death? my guess is they found him in a running vehicle in the garage.

  19. Cock Dr

    It’s because money, power & social standing always trumps everything else. Victims be damned, our team needs to be #1!

    • USDA Prime McBeef

      The first thing they teach you about football is that it’s not an outlet for homosexual urges. The second thing they teach you is that you gotta protect the football.

    • Randal(l)

      you sir, couldn’t be any more wrong. 2 championships in 60 years doesn’t make your program number one

  20. Think that ship sailed a while back, Fish.

  21. lily

    Terrible. As a Penn State Alumni and devoted Nittany Lion and once Paterno fan, I am disgusted with the Paternos and University with the way they handled this. If these reports are true, Ttey all deserve to rot.

    • RJ

      You and I both lily. Worst way for this all to come out, but at least everything is out in the open now. There’s no speculation building tension and difference among Penn Staters now.

  22. I_HEART_HUCKABEES

    FOOTBALL FOOOOOTBALLLL FOOOOOOOTBALLL!
    HUAAHHUAAHUUAAHUUUAAH HUT HUT HUT HUT
    JOCK-O-RAMA THAT’S THE LAW
    COME LICK THE BUTTS OF THE BEEF PATROL
    IF THE FUTURE OF AMERICA IS HANDED TO THEM
    WATCH IT RUN OVER NIAGARA FAAAALLLLLSSSS

  23. The NCAA should show some guts here and strike all of Penn State and Paterno’s wins from 1998 onward. His legacy and record number of wins seem to be blinding so many of his supporters, that to have his name stricken from the record books would go a long way toward giving perspective to people who can’t seen to understand how inhumanly their hero acted. Sure, at first his supporters will be all indignant, but eventually, he will simply be known as an average coach and pedophile apologist, not some heroic record holding demigod.

  24. Getagrip

    What JoePa and the University did was wrong, but to take down the football program and all the people running it today does not make sense. Unless of course you’re also for burning down Catholic churches or suspending the entire religion for at least 10 years. Don’t perpetuate the ugliness that has already taken place. If you are truly for the victims, then you should be rooting for the football program to suceed, since they’ve said they plan to sue the school and the school needs to be able to pay them. The money does not make up for what they went through, but at least it will help pay their therapy bills, so it doesn’t come out of their pockets!

    • Leila

      It has to be done. Because there are SO many people out there who will put football, church, whatever, over the safety of kids. And the only thing that MAY stop them from protecting themselves over children is the threat that it will all come down and take away the shit they think is so much more important than the kids [i.e., money, reputation, wins, whatever]. This is a chance, and they have to take it. SHUT DOWN Penn State football and take all of their shit for the last 15 years away. Including, their retirements, trophies, pensions, privileges, etc.

    • “What JoePa and the University did was wrong, but to take down the football program and all the people running it today does not make sense.”

      The program was mishandled, the people in charge have demonstrated their inability to have nice things, so they shouldn’t get them. If you hit them where it hurts, maybe they’ll get the message.

      “Unless of course you’re also for burning down Catholic churches or suspending the entire religion for at least 10 years.”

      I’m not entirely opposed to that idea, but I think a more reasonable approach would be to revoke their tax exempt status and begin charging bishops who do not aid police in investigations with being accessories after the fact in every instance of rape that occurred under their authority. Also, cutting off diplomatic relations with Vatican City might be in order.

      “Don’t perpetuate the ugliness that has already taken place.”

      Yeah, because tearing down the institution that helped create a safe-haven for repeat rapists is totally “perpetuating ugliness.” And, as a personal note, fuck you.

      “If you are truly for the victims, then you should be rooting for the football program to suceed, since they’ve said they plan to sue the school and the school needs to be able to pay them”

      The Penn State Auxiliary Enterprises Fund (which is where the athletics program draws it’s funding) is a $350 million piece of pie…I think they can afford it, especially if they don’t have to bother spending money on the football program.

      • Brilliant, Matrim.

        Getagrip, Penn will be able to cope without football, just as the Catholic Church has learned to cope without the property it had to sell off in order to cover the civil suits. I also don’t give two shits how much it hurt them, or how much it will hurt Penn. It’s fucking supposed to. A punishment that doesn’t hurt is no punishment at all.

        Advocating keeping the football program going in the face of such outrageous abuses, so that the victims can more successfully sue the school is like saying that IG Farben was wrong in producing all that Zyklon B, but they really should be allowed to continue to crank out more chemicals so that Holocaust victims would get a better settlement.

        Next time, don’t try to cloak this thick stream of pigskin loving apologist bullshit as reasoned concern for the innocent and victimized. And on a personal note, fuck you for even trying it.

      • RJ

        So basically, punish the masses for a few people’s wrongdoing? Sounds like terrorism had it right all along…

        That was a terrible analogy too, btw.

      • What’s the matter, already bought your season tickets for next year? It’s always interesting when people use the phrase “masses” – it means they’ve just lumped people into a group and really don’t give enough of shit about them to even consider them as individuals. I think it’s a great analogy, altho it’s actually a tad unfair to Farben to compare them to Penn. Whereas they might not’ve had a lot of choice when it came to disobeying the dictates of the Reich, the Penn admin did – and they chose to be on the side of not only ignoring, but sanctioning child rape, right down the line. And you seriously think the U should be allowed to continue that program without a single hiccup because otherwise “the masses” will be unfairly deprived? Fuck you, too.

        What I’m saying is that the university shouldn’t continue to profit by being allowed to operate an athletic program that they chose to put above the lives, health and safety of little kids. They could have stopped the abuse and cut loose a pederast, and rather than allow the possibility of a stain on their institution and endanger the Holy Name of Paterno and Football, they not only covered it up, they gave him free rein to prey on more kids on their watch.

        And if that fact alone woudn’t stop you from plunking down dime one for a ticket to a Lions game, then there’s something seriously fucking wrong with you.

      • RJ

        “And if that fact alone woudn’t stop you from plunking down dime one for a ticket to a Lions game, then there’s something seriously fucking wrong with you.”

        And there’s your problem right there. Over-exaggerating the fact this situation has to do solely with football. So it happened with a couple people in the football organization. It could have been over friendship. It could have been over covering up for football. Bottom line is they were the ones that fucked up. The rest of the university who not only enjoys football, but more importantly gains from the revenue of the team shouldn’t have to suffer for it. Or better yet, the players who committed to play for the team, and the few who possibly hold a future in the NFL. Hence, the quip I made about terrorism. If our government covers something terrible up they did to another country, then you better shut the fuck up when they bomb the hell out of us if you’re going to hold that stupid mentality.

        So yes, I do use the word masses because its exactly what you insinuated. And if you didn’t, you’re either full of shit or you need to proofread your mindless rants before you post them.

        And most importantly, if you think for one second that anyone of us on here against the notion of shutting the football program down is advocating what went on to some degree, then you can fuck off…or better yet, I just feel sorry for how stupid you are. Because I don’t know how you come to that simple a conclusion. Rip the statues down, rip his name off every building, erase everything associated with him and the rest. But don’t do something that holds it against anyone else.

        Your jealousy has made you insane. Your call for blood makes YOU the monster. You want to hurt children, families, old people, and the innocent in your zealous quest for revenge. I hope you get the medical attention you so desperately need, because you are a very sick person. There is nothing to be gained by digging up the past, it’s time you learn to let go.

        You are fake.

      • CranAppleSnapple

        That was a response to Nittany. Which means not actually a person in Assholian.

    Penn State never produced a winning NFL Tight End

    In all seriousness, Fuck Joepa and PSU for this shameful cover up. The fuck is wrong with Penn State!

  28. Just asking

    Doesn’t what he decided to do after following the investigation taking place depend on what that investigation was actually able to prove? And if the investigation didn’t provide proof …. what then?

    • Dear Just Asking – what the investigation was actually able to prove?!?! You mean the investigation in the 2001 rape of a child that didn’t come to light because Joe Paterno personally made sure the police and child protective services didn’t find out about the incident until ten years later? Oh, and in case you missed it, it turns out that twelve men and women just found that even a belated investigation hindered by Paterno’s efforts to protect a child molester proved beyond a reasonable doubt that Sandusky sexually assaulted a child in 2001.

      Nice try on the hypothetical pondering, but next time try just thinking.

  29. American football is insanely dangerous as it is, permanently destroying the health of the people who play it seriously, and many who even only play it casually. Not to mention the whole homosexual sadistic pedophile thing that it seems to breed. We turn football coaches loose on hundreds of thousands if not millions of schoolkids across the country every year. And what do we get? A legacy of broken bones, closed head injuries, diminished capacity, shattered psyches, pain, infections, paralysis and death. Shameful…

      A little overdramatic tuppy. I think sports gets a pass for a lot of sadistic shit, but wow.

    • Proteus

      I agree, football is retarded. The families who worship are moronic,
      usually, as well as fascist. AND deeply religious (another obsession of anus-minded fruitcakes). Both things (football, bible
      thumping) speak of weak, savage morons. Rapists, molesters, wife beaters, latent homos, woman haters: there’s your Penn State type.

      Don’t take down Joe-per’s statue though, just put a plaque near it that says: “Smell my finger! It’s boy ass!”

    I don’t understand why the police and DA (who was not part of the university) dismissed the initial case in 1988 when he raped that first child . . . The report doesn’t explain why they dropped the case instead of pressing charges.

  31. Nasty motherfucker.

  32. I have often commented when discussing pedo priests and the men that cover for them that only a nonce could or would cover for another nonce.

    No normal man would just turn a blind eye. There were many ways thie Sandusky situation could have been dealt with that didn’t allow Sandusky to stay on campus with access to children.

    Joe Paterno was a pedo himself.

  33. JKH

    Paterno leaves a proud legacy of having produced so many wide receivers over the years

  34. joe is a fraud. he wanted people to think he was some good guy. truth is- he turned the other way when it came to jerry raping the kids. he didn’t want to have his program embarrassed and his ‘legacy’ tainted by any of this so he worked with the administrators to just cover it up and pretend nothing was happening.
    the administrators and paterno knew very well what jerry was doing with the kids and they even allowed him to take the kids into the facilities for years after he had been removed from coaching duties. how in the hell was he using those facilities for all those years and no one did anything about it?
    joe was more concerned about a profitable football program than anything else.
