    No ones forgetting the real guilty person is Sandusky. However there's not a ton to say or discuss about it...he's scum, he's likely going to go to jail for the rest of his life, and the chances of that not happening are slim to none. Its not that people are forgetting about him, its just there's not much more to say then what is obviously going to happen to him.

    Indeed - Sandusky will go to jail.

    And boy don't they just love them some child rapists, there . . . they will gut him like the pig he is.

    He must have breathed a sigh of relief when they psuedo confronted him all those years ago about this - and then went all these years all stress free and happy . .. and then one day - woosh - there goes the wind tearing right through his sails. I don't know how people can be like that and then show their faces with everyone knowing the sins they've committed.

    I seriously hope it is not true.

    What the so-called "news" dwells on I find to be disgusting !
    The Catholic priests who molest children should only be fired by the Catholic church if the Catholic church 1.) thinks it's wrong to molest children and 2.) doesn't want to be associated with the behavior. Firing or not firing isn't the same as making sure someone is reported to the police and prosecuted.

    He should have been fired by Penn State if Penn State doesn't want people to think it's in favor of molesting children. He knew. He didn't do what most "normal" people would have done if they had "normal" interests at heart. Football First is not a defense.

    Staying or going has little to nothing to do with crime. He may be criminally liable. He may not. As a friend of the Sandusky family, he may have lived with a knowledge of molestation much like the other little kids who knew something was wrong. Who knows? There are a lot of excuses and a lot of reasons he may or may not be legally liable. It doesn't mean that he should not have been fired. He's a figurehead for the school. The school, it turns out, doesn't want people to think they condone child molestation or that they would cover it up. "The school" likely did cover it up, but the who's and how's won't come out for a long time if ever.

    Should a man be judged only upon his greatest mistake? No. But, no amount of goodness and success will cancel out some types of mistakes either.

    True - no one on this forum.

    Unfortunately - the rioting students from campus have made this view loud and clear . . . I hope at some point they realize how wrong they are for opposing a school's action when that school is cohorting with the Devil. (I almost wrote "when they grow up" - but you know what - they're suppose to be GROWN UP right now being adults and all)

    They should be protesting THE SCHOOL'S PAST decisions to not take any action against Sandusky at all.

    Alleged Victims' Lawyer: Penn State Board Made Wrong Call By Firing Joe Paterno | ThePostGame

    "The board of trustees got it wrong. They should have consulted the victims before making a decision on Mr. Paterno...They should have considered these victims watch TV and are aware of the students' reaction and may not want to be associated with the downfall of Mr. Paterno. The school instead elected to do what it felt was in its own best interest at the time. Isn’t that what put the school in this position in the first place?"

    Go and he should not be allowed at any of the games or on campus. Maybe if he is not allowed to be there at the games he will drop dead of a broken heart as he put the love of the game over children. He is a sick man and I hope he dies soon.

    I love how all you guys are squealing "he should have done more" and yet none of you have a freakin clue what that "more" should have been
    Your avatar suggest otherwise... You have a football helmet as your personal avatar.
