Sources: Joe Paterno's statue stays
ESPN ^ | Saturday, July 14, 2012

The embattled members of Penn State's Board of Trustees quietly have decided to leave Joe Paterno's statue standing -- at least for now and, some hope, forever, according to sources with firsthand knowledge of the trustees' private discussions this week.

The trustees' reluctance to remove the statue is motivated, in part, by a desire not to offend alumni and students who adore the late coach despite the damning findings of his role in the Jerry Sandusky child sexual abuse cover-up detailed in the Freeh report, the sources said. Some trustees also said in interviews they want to resist being pressured by the media into a sudden decision about such an emotionally charged issue.

Well, if anyone witnesses the statue being vandalized, I hope they have the good sense to go home and discuss the matter with their dad instead of calling the police.

If they don’t want it, I’ll put it in my front yard.

I hope they give it to you. Then I hope a few of Sandusky’s victims pays your home a nocturnal visit, just to pay their respects in a proper manner.

Every Board Member who was supposed to be on duty during the Tenure of Sandusky should be terminated immediately.

If you really respect the “man” then I hope you never get that statue shoved in your backyard. WHat you read right there was more concern than JoePa ever had for potential victims.

Yeah, the grass around the thing would be pissed brown! The statue needs to be “Saddamed.”
