I also think it's sad that his statue is coming down.

It is sad that all the good that Joe Paterno did in his career at Penn State has been
tarnished by the actions of Jerry Sandusky and the administration that swept
the events under the rug.

With the able assistance of one Joe Paterno  ::)

I don't see why they had to do that. I think that if they do that then they should have to give back all the money they invested to psu. It is so sad that the man is dead now drag his name through the mud.  :peace:

The statue coming down is not that big of a deal but I cannot believe that I admired JOE Pa for so long to only hear that he made have covered up one of the worse crimes in  our free world.

He is a piece of garbage. He covered up the actions of his friend. He didn't want bad publicity for his program. Well, they took away his wins. You know the ones he cherished so much? So now he advocated molestation for NOTHING. I wish I believed in hell so that I could rest easy knowing that this piece of trash is there now.

Its fair, we as a nation need to send the right message that child molesters and the people that cover it up are not going to get away with it.  Paterno is lucky he didn't live long enough to spend the rest of his life rotting in a cell.  Taking his wins and a statue down are fair punishment for a guy who escaped capital punishment for his crimes.

I think it is sad that his legacy is going to be tarnished, but I also believe it is partially his fault for not doing somethin about it, so I understand.  Noone can say he wasnt a good coach

Why should there be a staute of a person who did something so foul?  :bs: Looking the other way makes you just as guilty.

The statue absolutely needed to come down.  Joe is complete scum for the cover up for the crimes Jerry Sandusky committed.  He deserves to have every shred of positivity removed from the Joe Pa story.

The university decided to take the statue down to resolve an issue that will not be a solution to this situation. Joe Pa is no longer with us so no matter what is done  will not hurt Joe Pa but his legacy will suffer. His inaction forced a lot of people to deal with a situation that should have never gotten this far.
