Default Jay Paterno Attempts To Rewrite History

Jay Paterno, the son of and a former PSU asst coach under the late Joe Paterno has written a book with the intent of exonerating his dad. Some people just cannot accept the truth when a close relative does something horrendous.

I'm sure there are enough Joe Pa fans among the PSU faithful who will buy this book, but as far as I'm concerned, the only reason to buy this book should be to burn it.

If the book is free, I'd might read it. If not that would be kind of strange since he is supposedly trying to defend his father.

Bullshit. His father covered up for a pedophile because he didn't want the bad press it would generate.

There aren't too many "sides" to that and it needed to be exposed. He made the choice so that deserves to be his legacy.

Yeah there's a special place in hell for Pedophiles and the people who defend them... Maybe this kid needs to talk to the young men and their families and then see how important his father's legacy is.

We need to lock up Sanduskys wife while were at it. She heard the kids screaming and did nothing but make milk and cookies. She needs to get introduced to some female prison gangs

You can tell whatever sides you want, at the end of the day people are going to believe in their own conclusions. There was a obviously a child rapist let run lose and a cover up by Penn State. Asking people to believe someone who is beyond influential and personal friend to said child rapist as Joe Paterno was had nothing to do with it is little too much to ask.

I'm not condoning the actions of the people that were involved. It disgusts me to think about it. I am just saying to let the guy write his book. There have been plenty of other people who tell a story and get paid for it who have done gruesome things as well.

There are many many many "set the record straight" stories out there...its called freedom of speech.

You could call it "freedom of speech." Or you could call it, "freedom to make a bunch of money and recoup attorney's fees by writing about your dead child-rapist-harboring-protecting-friendmaking father and the suffering of children small and now grown and their families."

I have no idea how to describe the Penn State fan base. I don't know if "cultish" is the right word, but it's the closest thing I can come up with. It seems like there's a such a disconnect with the real world.

I sort of feel that way as well. Man never got a trial. Never got a chance to defend himself. 2 conflicting reports (one by Paternos and one by Freeh - who is not squeaky clean either http://www.tominpaine.blogspot.com/2...eh-was-co.html), both full of hearsay and full of assumptions. Hard for me to condemn him without the benefit of a jury of his peers.

Obviously not condoning what went on, just saying, tough for me to pull the trigger without really knowing Joepa's role.

Default Re: Jay Paterno Attempts To Rewrite History

If Jay Paterno was doating every dime of the sales of this book directly to the victims, or even to the adopted son of Sandusky who is roughly the same age as him and who got raped by Sandusky repeatedly, then maybe I could find a place to agree with this.

But instead, the dude is doing this DELIBERATELY as an effort to "clear his daddy's name" and his own name, and unless I hear otherwise, he will be surfing in Malibu or sailing off the coast of Isle of Palms waving his cash he got from the sale of this book in the face of everyone who disagrees with him, and that is raw and dead wrong.

He is making money off what happened. He is prolonging it.

And by exploiting what happened to make a profit, he is no worse than his dad.

In fact he might even be worse.

All in the family, I suppose.

Do you know that to be the reason he didn't mention it? Is telling someone and then no making sure that it was handled from them covering it up?

I mean I get where most of you are coming from. It turned into a witch hunt (rightfully so for Sandusky), and Joe Pa was the next biggest name they could have brought down with it.

You want to talk about rivers in Egypt. Ever think that maybe Joe Pa was in denial about what his best friend had done? Ever stop to think that maybe he reported it (which everyone has stated he did) and then washed his hands of it? We all agree he could have done more.

All of this was long before the awareness was what it is today, so none of us can TRUTHFULLY say what we would have done back then if we found this out about our best friend. I would have probably at least kicked his ass for starters.

The people outside of Penn State are just as bad as those that they're making fun of for sticking behind Joe Pa for what happened. Nobody won in this situation. Kids were tortured, a man will deservingly die in prison, and a great GREAT man and Football coach died because of this. Joe Pa paid a bigger price than anyone in this case and he had the least involvement.

I'm done, this thread is just going to turn into the same people making the same comments.

Couldn't have said it any better. The man never got his chance to defend himself, yet the 95% of the rest of the nation has their mind made up on what they "know" happened.

Outside of this one situation, every person that ever came across Joe Pa spoke about how great of a man he was. I will also say that he should have done way more than he did, but I refuse to hang a man that I can't prove is guilty of anything.
