Please, don’t use character and Paterno in the same sentence. This guy is a disgrace. So you may be a “sports nut,” but you can’t sweep Paterno’s role under the rug “ for the good of collegiate sports.” It just isn’t going to wash. It is very telling that the accounts coming out of Penn State are to the effect that everyone knew about these acts, and knew about them for a decade or more. LIke Al Pacino said in The Scent of a Woman, “someone needs to take a flamethrower to this place!”
What accounts? You are suggesting that there is a vast conspiracy coming out of Penn State to protect a monster. Is this your statement? Are you seriously saying that a man whose wife and family didn’t even know he was a serial child abuser was being protected by dozens or even hundreds of people?
