    I love the NSA. It's like having a secret fan-base you will never see, but they're there, watching everything you write and it makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside knowing that I may be some person's only form of unconstitutional entertainment one night.

    Paterno could have stopped it, but some stupid game was more important to him. He can eat a piping hot bowl of dicks.

    Sorry your all wrong sig...its not someone elses criminal behavior...it was HIS, he enabled Sandusky to continue sexually assaulting child victims for decades. He turned his back on all those kids for PROFIT and Football and allowed them to be victims of assault which affects them their entire life.
    Paterno did that all on his own...yes the adminstrators are culpable that doesnt lesson Paternos role in the criminality of it all...he deserves NOTHING

    He was an enabler.

    Whats the old saying.

    A kiddie rapist enabler is as bad as the kiddie rapist himself.

    Agreed. He's guilty of negligence and guilty by association.

    But it is not the ONLY legacy he leaves behind, is it?

    That would depend upon the degree to which he was an enabler. Had he actually witnessed such behavior and did nothing about it, you might have a point; but such is not the case. What he was witness to was unsubstantiated hearsay and rumors, particularly one not-very-credible story about an incident which allegedly occurred in a locker room shower where a grown man sodomized a ten year old boy without the boy screaming in absolute agony. Therefore, your point borders upon the ridiculous.

    Take it down, melt it down, destroy it if people are thinking like this.

    Anyone who thinks a "football coach" is the closest thing to a living god needs to be forcefully re-educated.
