He should have retired ten years ago. Now, he goes out in disgrace.

He should. When you know about someone on your staff molesting a 10 year old boy in the locker room, you call the police. You don't hand it off to administration to handle it internally.

Well he hasn't really been coaching. But to me this isn't about coaching or football, but about our duty to each other and he failed those kids along with others in the faculty. Disgrace is the right word. He'll be allowed to retire, but he's basically been fired.
All sorts of fun lawsuits are going to come out of this one, because any person ever been fired for cause at that University has a case of discrimination

Good to see. It's beyond naive to think it's ok to just tell your superiors and think that's enough.

Legally speaking he's not compelled to even report the crime. I would imagine that he's violated the code of conduct for the University and so did McQueary(sp), the current position coach, and the AD, and the anyone else that knew.

By not reporting what he knew to authorities he too hurt the very kids that looked up to his program.

he deserves to have his image tarnished and be booted out of the university. This is beyond disgusting.

Yeah, I was surprised by that but saw that apparently, legally, he's covered by reporting it. Obviously he's ok legally but, in terms of morally, it was absolutely the wrong decision.

He isn't facing jailtime but his tarnished legacy will tell us all what the right decision would have been. The sad part for Paterno is that he'll probably die before this all has a chance to blow over completely.

From everything I've read, he did precisely what the PSU code of conduct required him to do based off of the information he was given by the witness to the incident.

Whoa whoa whoa

Everybody calm dalm. Sandusky's the criminal here and Schultz and Curley aren't too far behind for covering it up.

As for Paterno, Sandusky no longer worked for him and after bringing it to the attention of his superiors who's to say they didn't tell him they notified the police?

IF it comes out that he was in any way shape or form involved in covering this up OR even negligent with how it was handled, then yes, he's done and his legacy should even be forgotten, but let's see over the next week.

So if you were Joe and a assistant told you he saw Sandusky anal raping a ten year old boy you wouldnt feel obligated to do more than just tell your superior? I am surprised to hear that from someone with a kid.

PSU people I know are embarrassed and say he should step down gracefully.

Well, as gracefully as he can at this point.

No no no, not what I'm saying at all. I'm saying he may have gone to the athletic director who may have assured him he'd contact the police immediately.

In no way shape or form am I saying the story that's out right now is acceptable. If that's all he did and he thought that was the appropriate channel for that offense, then he should go down hard.

Well I haven't read it...and as hard as we would try we wouldn't find a 2002 copy. I'll bet if we read it, we'd find it.
