This will be one of many columnist who spew nonsense. Whitlock will be next. You can't expect them to do anything but try to debunk the Paterno's attempt to clear Joe's name. Remember, 90% of the media has already convicted the man. Surly you can't expect them to dine on crow.

You can't just copy and paste entire articles from other sites and post them like that.
Edit: Here's the actual link to the article
The Paterno report offers the result it was commissioned to get. Gregg Doyel says in reality it changes nothing about Joe Paterno's guilt in the 'Jerry Sandusky reign of terror.'

Stopped reading when it got to "Kool-aide drinkers". I find most people that use this expression and others like it aren't intelligent enough to formulate an argument or articulate their thoughts. It's pointless to have a thoughtful discussion. I'll add anyone that uses the words "Penn State culture" as well.
Understood. But it is what it is.
Yeah, it's copyright violation.
And of course we'll all have to listen to the "victims advocates" angle as well. Frankly I can care less about public opinion at this point. I think everyone has their minds made up one way or the other. I just want some sort of due process for Paterno and the current football program whom have been wrongly punished.
Victim advocate calls Paterno family report late coach should have known that a crime had been committed, regardless of his understanding of sex crimes.

Cry me a river you puss....copyright that shit.

And my last upvote of the day goes to...
Doyle doesnt want to change his narrative. It would mean he is wrong.
Dear Copyright Gestapo, nobody cares.
So if the Paterno Report did "The. Extact. Same. Thing." as Freeh, why is his report more creditable again?
Because Louis Freeh's report ended the way the media ha already decided.
The man who screwed up a FIFA report and the 96 Olympic investigation couldn't be wrong. The former head of the FBI?
An ex FBI BAU member specializing in this stuff and
A Johns Hopkins professor who is also an expert in the field.
bc freeh was paid millions by the university who sought an investigation and he was also head of the fbi.. not saying his report is more credible of course, but it fits the media agenda so why not roll with it?
You're sort of a dick, aren't you?
Considering it is a board rule and Sean has asked people to do it, nah he isn't.
Now I am a dick. But even I'm not going to get pissy at the guy doing what the site admins have asked him to do.
Now, I think I read somewhere that all internet threads eventually deteriorate to the point where there is a comparison to Nazi Germany.
Vee vill NOT have unlinked copying hereeee!!!
Ze Comandant haz said so !!
IT IS A RULE!!!
Having said that, rules are meant to be broken.
When a writer is an exceptional douche (aka Doyell), the rules do not apply.
Indirectly comparing Sean to Hitler while bitching about rules that if broken wouldn't affect your bottom line and personal finances, awesome. Its a link. Don't click on it if you don't want to. I'm not saying I have never broken the law (I speed every day), but breaking the law and having someone else pay the consequence for it, nah I respect hard working people like Sean more than that.
Ok, it’s now well established the way the 2 camps operate relative to public comment on whatever the latest is pertaining to the Sandusky affair or any of the related matters.
First, what are the 2 camps I am referring to? One can roughly be identified as simply the “Anti-Penn State forces” and the other at least holds out the possibility that Penn State may have been railroaded a bit. The second group may be starting to sense that the particular emotions engendered by Sandusky’s repugnant acts may have created the climate for a moral panic and rush to judgment.
As many have pointed out the people who have gone on record castigating Penn State, Paterno, et al, have a vested interest in averting their eyes to any additional insights that might show that they have acted in haste and done great damage to people who didn’t deserve it. That would also detract from their view of themselves as the vanguard of all things good and decent. Note that this camp, seems to have almost a “war-room” reaction to anything that comes out that might contradict their simple view of what went on. Their responses come mere hours after PA vs. NCAA is announced or the critique of the Freeh report is made public. True to their instant “thoughtful consideration”, they are out immediately with their knee-jerk reactions.
In a few days we will hear from the other group. This group, unfortunately for us, is smaller but they make up for it in a more dispassionate rationale analysis. This group is also growing as they begin to feel less comfortable agreeing with the likes of Mark Emmert.
The real hurdle for the Paterno's is that all these media types are already on record blasting Paterno. For them to come out and suddenly give this report merit, they are admitting that they screwed up and all the venomous quotes from last year would be thrown back in their faces.... not gonna happen.
Ley was one guy from the start that I think kept an open mind and avoided the emotion-filled rants. I don't think it's a coincidence that he was the guy that gave them a platform.

Read carefully, my friend........
I wasnt' "indirectly comparing" Sean to Hitler.
It was someone else that I was comparing to Hitler.
Someone else that was "enforcing " rules that, well, no one else really cared about, at least in this thread.
