"It was Paterno who ruined Paterno"

There is objective evidence that the beloved Joe Pa knew about Sandusky and the child molestation since 1998. He apologized for, and ultimately helped pay off, a pedophile. There is nothing that Paterno accomplished in his sports career that can wash this away.

It's like saying, "But the Juice won the Heisman!"

I am a sports fan. I indulge in hero worship. But I cannot stomach this. And no one should.

  1. I kind of knew that Paterno had to know at least some of what was going on. If he was completely innocent, he probably would have still been alive. The guilt of knowing killed him so he wouldn't have to admit that he turned a blind eye to the abuse.
