    Yes, I already said you didn't use logic when you started this thread.

    That is not a fact. That is this guys opinion. It was Freeh's opinion that Paterno was somewhat culpable based on the evidence he viewed, which isn't a fact, either.

    The Paterno defense team is simply stupid.
    One man hired Sandusky, was his immediate boss and kept him around for well over a decade.
    That man had knowledge the guy was a child molester from multiple sources and did nothing more than alert his bosses there might be a problem....

    Paterno KNEW he was at fault.
    That's why he didn't act.
    He didn't want everyone else to know he was at fault.
    He wanted to protect his image at all costs... even if others were getting sexually assaulted by his employee.

    I coach kids sports at a high level. We use paid skills trainer.
    If one of them molested one of my players I would feel personally responsible for IMMEDIATELY preventing that person from being around kids ever again, much less my players.

    This is a guy who goes into parents homes and asks them to trust their kids to him and his staff.
    I hope he died of shame.

    Paterno knew it was his own fault that Sandusky raped a bunch of children?

    Roy since you seem DESPERATE to defend Joe in this thread- how many posts?- I challenge you to say he did not enable Sandusky to keep abusing children. He allowed Sandusky to keep coming to Penn State. KNOWING what he had previously done. So how is that not enabling?

    What exactly do you think Joe knew.. other than what McQueary told him he saw?

    Also, at that point, Sandusky wasn't on the football staff, so it wasn't Joe who allowed him to stay on the campus.

    wow. just wow. You never run out of excuses, do you?

    So you claim that if Joe Paterno had said to the University

    "Sandusky should not be allowed on this campus again"

    nothing would have happened?

    To those defending Paterno, .. answer that question. Don't talk about Paterno. What is your opinion of that mother?
