Hatter after seeing you go to bat for pedophiles and the folks who protect them I dont ever want to see you attack the morality or character of pro athletes again. Youre more concerned with Joe Pa's tarnished image then a bunch of little boys getting raped and sodomized by gray haired old men. I see why crimes against kids and abuse is so rampant in your community.
I'm not going to bat for the ex-psu leaders. I'm not going to attack my fellow PSU fans that still support PSU or still support JoePa. He meant a hell of a lot more than just a football coach to the PSU community. That invested emotional attachment to JoePa for many many years makes it hard to fathom he would have had a part in this. It's going to take a lot of time maybe years before a good portion of the community can adjust.
To the outside community, there is just one issue all lumped together. To PSU community there are two. One that all, but a few dumbshits that every fan base has, who feel an enormous amount of sympathy for the children Sandusky abused. The other is dealing with someone who has been held to a father like figure being a part of the disgusting scandal. It's like finding out your father or grandfather who you've held to such a high regard all your life might of been protecting his friend and his own legacy instead of protecting the children that suffer. It's hard to come to terms with. And while your dealing with it your being slammed by the rest of the world for your disbelief of what has been said. There's probably a third issue and that's defending the communities right to move forward and still have a football team and program where no one involved had nothing to do with this disgusting tragedy. That community by the way includes the victims who some have come forward and are PSU football fans.
It's easy for those that had no emotional attachment for PSU football and those that had an hate for PSU football before hand to condemn everyone involved right away. It's going to take more time for some the PSU football fans to do the same. We're still in shock and disbelief.
None of this makes the actions of PSU community free from scrutiny from the world. Just means I'm not going to slam my fellow PSU fans for stuff they are having a tough time dealing with.
