I realize that comment may have been offensive to Catholics on the board, but I think it is a consideration.

I actually do wonder if that had a bearing on his behavior. Maybe not, maybe it was pure unchecked ego that made Paterno willing to cover up child molestation rather than tarnish the Penn State program. But I see some parallels in motive between the church covering for priests and Paterno covering for Sandusky.

If you report a crime to your superiors -- instead of the proper authoririties -- and nothing is done about it ...

And you, in turn, do nothing further to make the police aware of the crime .....

You are concealing the crime & protecting the criminal & potentially creating new victims.

It's not just football ... it's a big money-maker for the school. Hence the cover-up.

Since his church has covered for priests for years, maybe he just thought that was the appropriate way to handle it.
Yeah... the prison priests fight over who gets to hear Sandusky's weekly confession.

Any thoughts? I'm really sickened by this... could it be possible to strip him of this or at least partially? I hate to hear that he's living off money that he made abusing these kids.

University: Paterno statue to be removed
By the CNN Wire Staff
updated 8:25 AM EDT, Sun July 22, 2012



Quote:
(CNN) -- The statue of the late Penn State football coach Joe Paterno outside the campus' football stadium will be removed, the university's president said Sunday.

The tribute to Paterno had become an object of contention after the child rape scandal involving former assistant coach Jerry Sandusky.

Paterno's statue and legacy came under fire after the release of the Freeh Report, the scathing investigation led by former FBI Director Louis Freeh.

Penn State board member resigns over Sandusky scandal

The report found several Penn State officials concealed evidence that Sandusky had sexually abused minors. Freeh concluded that Paterno could have prevented further sexual abuse had he taken action. Sandusky was convicted of 45 counts of child sexual abuse involving 10 victims.

"I now believe that, contrary to its original intention, coach Paterno's statue has become a source of division and an obstacle to healing in our university and beyond," University President Rodney Erickson said in a statement.

The 900-pound bronze statue, outside Beaver Stadium, will be stored in a "secure location."

NCAA not ruling out tough sanctions on Penn State football

"I believe that, were it to remain, the statue will be a recurring wound to the multitude of individuals across the nation and beyond who have been the victims of child abuse," he added.

On Sunday, Penn State employees began placing fencing around the statue, as well as a tarp. Local and university police were at the scene, and some students have gathered near the stadium.

Another tribute to Paterno -- the university library that bears his name -- will remain as it is, Erickson said.

"The library remains a tribute to Joe and Sue Paterno's commitment to Penn State's student body and academic success, and it highlights the positive impacts coach Paterno had on the university," he wrote.
As of this post, CNN and Fox News is reporting the the statue has been removed.

Right move to remove the statue, I can't believe he still has blind loyalty by some at this point. Sad case all the way around, but especially for the victims who could've been sparred if those in charge would've acted like they should have.

Default Re: Penn State Child Molestation Case

NCAA is supposed to deliver the death penalty today:

I disagree with this for a couple reasons, now don't shoot me cause what happened at Penn State is completely wrong and inexcusable. The people that are responsible this should be punished not the 1000's of students that will be impacted by the loss of revenue.

School should have to setup a fund that half it's revenue ever year go to for the next 10-15 years to sponsor kids of abuse. This would allow the current students to continue their tradition which has nothing to do with the cover up. I feel it's wrong to cover penalize 1000's of student for the decisions of the ones involved in the cover up.

Everyone of them should be in jail.

Per ESPN front page it says "unprecedented" sanctions will be delivered monday.

I am sure the death penalty will be a possibility, I have a feeling though they will do everything short of it sadly.

I think the death penalty would be good for both sides in moving forward.

Someone suggested making their football program non-scholarship for 4 years.
That would be as effective as the the death penalty but could be applied since the death penalty requires the program to already been under restrictions or on probation

Harsh penalties coming down on Penn State from NCAA but no death penalty. Some are saying worse than death penalty.

Loss of scholarships and multi-year bowl bans for starters.

I just watched the live video feed from the NCAA.

Highlights of the sanctions.

* $60 million dollar fine
* No Bowl games or post-season for 4 years
* Vacate all victories from 1998 - 2011.

I would have to disagree. No bowl games sucks, but they will still continue to recruit and field a good team. Just look at USC. They had a 2 year bowl ban and are still kicking ass as a football team. Hell, their QB is a potential #1 overall pick in the NFL draft next year.

Death penalty forces a school to start a team again from scratch. So is it harsh? Yes. Worse than the death penalty? No.
