    It really isn't possible to negatively rep someone?

    Joe Pa was an old man and lived a good life. He had a good career but make no mistake, turned his cheek the other way numerous times when it came to Sandusky.

    Gotta say, I can't sympathize with him too much either.

    People make mistakes in their lives. Granted Joe Pa made a huge mistake but we are not the ones who will pass final judgement on him. This is a sad day for his family, friends, and all of football. God Bless Joe Pa buckeye nation will miss you and thank you for everything you did for the game of football.

    Re: Breaking: Joe Paterno is in serious condition

    lol yeah, that's what's wrong. covering up for a pedo and then even going on to say things like ""I didn't know exactly how to handle it and I was afraid to do something that might jeopardize what the university procedure was." or maybe 'Paterno says, "I called my superiors and I said, 'Hey, we got a problem, I think. Would you guys look into it?' Cause I didn't know, you know.'" aren't wrong at all.

    or what about "And to be frank with you I don't know that it would have done any good, because I never heard of, of, rape and a man."

    seriously?

    i am supposed to feel bad? after a guy continues to be a clueless idiot who handled the entire situation - from start to finish - in the worst way possible?

    eta: and to clarify, not having any sympathy != wishing death upon someone

    Re: Breaking: Joe Paterno is in serious condition

    What I don't understand is that Joe Pa was very hands on when his players were in some sort of trouble and wanted to handle the situations himself rather than the school officials hand down punishments. However, when it came to little boys who didn't play football all the sudden he wanted someone else to take care of it?!

    Re: Breaking: Joe Paterno is in serious condition

    This man is dying. Perhaps you don't understand what death means, or respect it. I don't think this thread is meant to kick a man while he is down.

    I prefer to take my time and send my condolences to a wife who is losing a husband, children that are losing their father, and whether you want to admit it or not, the thousands of youths he helped mold into disciplined individuals. There was a reason this man was so well respected and loved.

    I choose to pray for this man because of the good things he has done in his life and not spit on his grave for the bad.

    Re: Breaking: Joe Paterno is in serious condition

    oh no, i absolutely feel bad for his wife, children, and other family members.you know, the people who weren't actually aware of the enabling. but i do not have any sympathy for paterno himself.

    but now that he's gone, here come the eulogies that all happen to omit the years when children were raped in facilities which paterno oversaw and was supposed to have some semblance of responsibility. oh and i'm sure some will not only be praising him, but will also be blasting the media and public in general for "causing" his death.

    eta: now reports are out saying he's still alive??

    Re: Breaking: Joe Paterno is in serious condition

    From his Wikipedia page:

    "In addition to his legacy as a coach, Paterno is highly regarded for his contributions to academic life at Penn State. After the announcement of his hiring in 1966, Paterno set out to conduct what he called a "Grand Experiment" in melding athletics and academics in the collegiate environment, an idea that he had learned during his years at Brown. As a result, Penn State's players have consistently demonstrated above-average academic success compared to Division I-A schools nationwide. According to the NCAA's 2008 Graduation Rates Report, Penn State's four-year Graduation Success Rate of 78% easily exceeds the 67% Division I average, second to only Northwestern among Big Ten institutions.

    Paterno is also renowned for his charitable contributions to academics at Penn State. He and his wife Sue have contributed over $4 million towards various departments and colleges, including support for the Penn State All-Sports Museum, which opened in 2002, and the Pasquerilla Spiritual Center, which opened in 2003. After helping raise over $13.5 million in funds for the 1997 expansion of Pattee Library, the University named the expansion Paterno Library in their honor.

    In 2007, former player Franco Harris and his company R Super Foods honored Paterno for his contributions to Penn State by featuring his story and picture on boxes of Super Donuts and Super Buns in Central PA. A portion of the sales will be donated to an endowment fund for the university library that bears his name."


    If we're going to judge the man, let's judge everything, not just his worst moments.
