For many years, Joe Paterno ran a very tight ship at Penn State's football program. He was a model citizen that lived a modest life, donating the
largest part of his salary to the school.
All that has changed. Joe did the right thing legally, but in a moral sense, he failed miserably.
Firing him was the right move by the board of trustees, which includes the governor of the state of PA. Joe should have resigned yesterday and saved
the fans the disgrace of seeing him fired, which no one would have ever predicted a year ago.
College football is too big.
Universities are supposed to be about higher learning, not about operating a sports business that generates $50 million a year. JMHO.

Lmao, spoken like a true feminist. I bet you wouldn't be happy till all male sports are outlawed and only women studies classes are offered on
Joe did the right thing. He didn't witness the event first hand. If he had witnessed the event first hand he would have had a moral/legal obligation
to call the cop's asap. But, based upon the testimony of another he did the only thing he should have, report it to the higher ups. If they failed to
respond then the blame falls squarely on them.
By your own admission this isn't about Joe, this is about feminist, male hating bigots like you attacking the "patriarchy". Attacking anything
pro-male, or anything that enables male self determination(as College football helps many get an education they wouldn't have been able to get without
football; Feminist definition of "Patriarchy"= male individual self determination,exp: My right to decide what to wear, how to vote, what I want to
get an education in, whom I choose to marry/date/avoid, what type of job I want to work; all of that is the mythical "patriarchy" that feminist's want
to "smash and destroy".).
Bitter...Table Of One! WTF? Are you projecting, or what? Your off-topic rant says a lot more about your attitude about women than anything. At least
he was on topic. Maybe your testosterone is clouding your perceptions.
I agree with him. Universities are for education, not for running multi-million dollar sports programs. And that money was the basis for the cover-up,
plain and simple. Children were abused and have suffered because of the greed of the Administration and the coaches in tandem. The politics of gender
issues has nothing to do with this. Sandusky is a child molester, and his cronies helped him sweep it under the rug. It's pretty obvious.
