    Agreed. They want every bit of this to explode into the story of the year.

    Re: Incredible ugliness at Penn State

    I saw somewhere on TV tonight that a janitor reported seeing Sandusky giving oral sex to a child in the showers back in 2000 and reported it to his boss and other janitors. Point being, there's no way Paterno didn't know about this. None!

    The question that I have is did Paterno continue to have a relationship with Sandusky. Did they still interact, associate with each other, etc... That would be even more telling, IMO.

    I think that the BOT made the right decision and removed Paterno before he coached another game. The President of the university also got axed and that was also the right call, IMO.

    In my opinion, this scandal dwarfs anything that the sports scandals of the past that have happened in my lifetime---and, frankly, I'm a lot older than most anyone on this board.

    Joe Paterno has forever tarnished his reputation and I will always look at him with shame over a single (in)action.

    Here's a good link with the timeline of key dates in this. Reading through it makes me angrier. How was this allowed to continue to happen? It's tragic and disgraceful.

    It wouldn't matter to the national news, theres blood in the water already and they've already carved this story up.

    They're judge, jury, and executioner.

    There's only one question that needs to be asked here and it has no regard for name, title, tenure, age or anything else:

    Do you do everything in your power to protect innocent kids?

    If the answer is no, get the hell out.

    Yet McQueary still remains at Penn State? That's the most unfathomable thing to me.
    My dad got to enjoy 3 Reds World Championships by the time he was my age. So far, I've only gotten to enjoy one. Step it up Redlegs!

    Whistleblower protection? Maybe? Thats the only hail mary attempt I can figure out...

    Oh ya btw Mark Madden on his whatever account said its going to get even worse. He says they're just looking into the second mile charity.

    Exactly.

    Anything else is displaying an attitude of some degree of tolerance for this kind of stuff (which I think has contributed to institutions allowing it to go on). And think this is a zero tolerance kind of thing.

    And I think anyone complicit in these kinds of crimes need to have their chain yanked up short. *Anyone*, regardless of position, tenure, or fame.

    Pay attention to the open sky

    @MarkMaddenX Mark Madden Don't believe this can get worse? Give it 72 hrs. People really digging into Second Mile. Even more shocking revelation is ahead. Yikes.

    One news report said that McQuery was put on leave, no idea if that is accurate, of course his coaching career will be over, can't see any program hiring him now.

    Anyone that thinks JoPa deserved better needs to let this sink in a bit and also think about what these kids could've been protected against.

    And this may just be this guy stirring up interest, but hes normally pretty legit in his reports and he claims this is about to get worse. I really dont know how thats even possible and dont wanna speculate.

    I hope they don't escalate, I have a friend who's an assistant soccer coach there at Penn State. Fortunately the soccer team isn't on campus right now. I don't think.

    There's no need for more stupidity on top of the legal situation the school is already having to deal with.
