As a supporter of Penn State football, I can say this, the school did the right thing yesterday in firing Joe Paterno. The school needs to fire everyone on the staff. You have identified the main culprit and all the people who placed the football program ahead of innocent victims but have you rooted out all accomplices? Get rid of the whole bunch and start new.
Joe Paterno was Penn State and Penn State was Joe Paterno. Paterno said that he told the proper authorities when he learned of this. Good for you, but you did not do enough. You are Joe Paterno and if you pushed the issue to be investigated properly they would of. You are Joe Paterno. You now are Joe Paterno, the man who allowed this to happen in his house and not the man who had most wins in college football. Sad. How does a sport take precedence over the heinous act of child molestation?
Here is a strange thought. These heinous acts happened over a number of years. Isn't it kind of strange that right after Paterno becomes the winningest coach in college football history, these heinous acts are addressed. Coincidence? I think not.
