His critics (there are many) will have to mention that he was fired, but HE didn't rape anyone. The Penn State brass will regret firing him and not just letting him walk away. Maybe he could have done more but like I wrote, HE DIDN'T RAPE ANYONE!

R.I.P. Joe, history will be more kind to you then the Penn State brass and the MSM was.

No, he just covered up the existence of a child molester who ran a kid's football camp.

I'm wondering if the doctors actually pulled the plug on him. Maybe there should be an investigation.

He was informed about the rape by the wittness' father, he then told his boss. Maybe he didn't or couldn't belive the story. The wittness didn't stop it, his boss didn't go to the police. Who knows what was going thru his head. The wittness should have gone to the cops, his father sould have went with him to the police not to Paterno.

Everyone has a responsibility to do something when they hear about a possible rape, especially involving children. If the witness didn't go to police but told Paterno, Paterno should have reported it to the police.

But despite that, cold-blooded murder and vigilante justice isn't acceptable, especially from doctors. This should be investigated, as I said.

I'm sure he'll be missed at least as much as Michael Jackson and Pope John Paul II. Hey, neither of them were convicted of raping anyone, either...

The Drudge Report, FOX News, CNN and Yahoo are reporting he's dead, unless he's returned from the dead to get his job back?

Before most folks outside of college football had heard the name Sandusky, at least for now what he's so infamously known for, there were lots of folks who wish Joe Pa had the decency to let go his grasp on Penn State and enjoy his well deserved latter years in life.

Much like the late Bear Bryant, who died about a month after his final day as coach @ Alabama, Paterno simply could not see himself as anything else than a coach of Penn State.

40+ years at a university, and the suits didn't have the dignity to fire Joe Pa in person. Made him call THEM, and then fired him, over the phone.

He sure as hell messed up by turning a blind eye on what Sandusky did, but still...hell of a hard way to go, after all he did.

Indeed - you win lots and lots of American football games but when you ignore systematic child abuse, suddenly everyone's like "You're a bad guy". Come on, he won lots of football games! Let's put a pin in this whole 'children being raped' thing and focus on him having won football games. Lots of them.

Point of fact, Paterno didn't technically turn a blind eye on the child abuse issue, but he did the next worst thing. He kicked the report up to his superiors, and then went on about his business. He said himself he should have done more, but 10+ years after the fact, and who knows how many more 'incidents' took place, it's kinda hard to explain that to the kids and parents , or anyone else, why more wasn't done.

Like woman, I am a mystery.


I heard he actually died months ago but his wife only felt it necessary to report it to senior officials. Oops.

Socialist and unashamed about it.
