amazing what one mistake can do.


I didn't have much of an opinion about Paterno. But I'm not escorting him to hell either, that's for the holier than thou crowd.

A mistake he had 1000s of new mornings to fix.
And chose not to.

My devil coming to collect comment in the other thread was just about the situation and how you always see a scenario like this in movies. Make a deal with the devil...he upholds his end of the bargain but with a twist.

Oh I agree with Deals with The Devil and they never being what you really want. But I am not going to tear down a man for making a very bad decision on something he should have gotten up out of his chair and taken a look for himself.

Much worse poo happens every day.

Yes, Paterno made a horrible mistake by not following up, however he still did do great charitable acts, why is it so easy to discredit the good?

unfortunately he deserves the hatred that many feel for him. i don't share it, but i'm not going to condemn it.

i just hope that they (or i) never get put in that situation but if we do that we handle it better. we need to realize how strong that desire will be to sweep it under the rug or forget/pretend that something so despicable could ever happen before our eyes.

It would only be fitting in my eyes that those that are spewing so much hatred toward Joe would be put in a similar situation. It would be a very difficult position to be in, and I don't believe anyone really knows how they would react until they are put in that situation themselves.

Yes he made one big mistake by not following up on Sandusky, but he also has contributed far more to charities and his community than most people will in a lifetime. It's far too easy to overlook all he has done due to one bad decision, and it definitely doesn't validate all the evil remarks he is receiving from some on this board while he is on his death bed.

You call the police and tell them what you know. The police investigate, and you go back to work.
