Joe didn't do the right thing . He should of
went beyond the call of duty. Yes I was in the military and most of my chain of command worked. But when I reported a drug problem outside of the chan of command the situation got taken care of. There is also that thing about if you don't feel comfortable with the chain of command then go to someone who is going to do something about it. Joe was a leader and along with being a leader comes that part besides rights,is responsibility. If Joe was the coach and leader he was supposed to be, then if he is that good why did he have too donate money? Never heard a coach donate that kind of money to keep his Job. Also there are some other coaches that won2 national championships in less the 45 years. General Patton never donated tanks to keep his Job. The Army would of considered unethical and refused them and possibly thrown hom out.

JunkE, what interest do you have in believing the Freeh report? It is NOT complete, thorough or truthful. Joe did EXACTLY as the college provided for. In these kinds of situations you report but are NOT entitled to "Updates" on the case. He IS still to be idolized, and I find it quite laughable that someone like you thinks you are competent to pass judgment on someone of Paterno's caliber.....Because you AREN'T>
I was a diehard PSU fan growing up and I had a lot of respect for Joe Paterno. I don't need a report to tell me that if this continued for as long as it did without people doing anything other than pushing everyday for it to be stopped, they are no longer somebody I can idolize.

Well, that is where we differ, the football never meant anything to me, I am not defending that, I am defending a HERO, that has been fed to the herd mentality masses of the outraged and totally uninformed.

In the beginning yes, I totally agree with you. Now that the investigation has been completed and reports have been made public you can't really claim the public to be "uninformed" anymore.

All the hype about Bill O'Brien becoming the top coach in the big ten, Don't forget about what your leader (ha ha ) said, HE DIDN'T BUILD THAT. It is still Paterno's team. Wait until he builds his own team before giving him the rewards..

Bill O'Brien did the most amazing task this season in the entire history of College Football with Joe's mediocre recruits ! Give him a few years to get his own ...

It doesn't make sense that Jordan Hill from Penn State defensive line will be able to play in the Senior Bowl and the whole team is not allowed to go to a Bowl game after winning 8 games, more than required, all because of something they had no part in. I hope the rest of the team sues the NCAA for discrimination.

And then Penn State gets a 4 year lights out ban.
