ziggy just posted this...
so it sounds like there will be a focus on V2 and it sounds like it's the same person that came forward before, said nothing happened that night, was not used by either the prosecution or defense, and then lawyered up and is suing PSU.
From John "I am well aware that there is a lot of speculation (and more than a little bed wetting) about my scheduled appearance Monday on the Today Show to discuss my recent interview with Jerry Sandusky. First of all, NBC messed up the promotion and Sandusky will NOT be on the show. I will be in control of what clips from the interview get played and, hopefully the direction of the conversation. The purpose here is to bring out new information helpful to the exoneration of Joe Paterno and Penn State. I am well aware that the news media will attack me for this and I have written this helpful (tounge in cheek) guide to explain to them how best to do so. Please be patient and do not panic. The truth is my only objective here and I believe we have a unique chance to share that truth with an audience that has never been exposed to it. Thank you for your support. http://www.framingpaterno.com/open-letter-news-media-how-do-hit-piece-john-ziegler"
Yes I do believe he has victim 2 also.
after spending 45 minutes at a spin class i think JS might be ready to blow MM to pieces. Things like MM was always ay his house, or MM lifted with him, or MM just basically never changed his mannerisms toward JS.
The whole hellfire started when Linda Kelly stood on national TV and said that MM saw rape of a 10 year old. She doesn't do that and this thing goes by the wayside like Syracuse.
Well, he's still fighting, and there aren't many who can say that. I don't have my hopes up that Matt Lauer will say, you know we have this all wrong, we're sorry. At least they'll air the segment. We'll see how fair it is...
"You can take bowl games and you can take external things from people, but you can't take a warrior's heart."
The one thing ol Ziggy can do is defend himself during questioning. He knows this case inside and out and won't let any talk show hosts say things that are false. Although, he may make himself and PSU look bad in the process b/c he gets a bit excited during interviews and sounds a bit crazy.
better him than slaten who would probably blow his lid and spit on Matt Lauer.... ;)
You say that like it's a bad thing?
Dominate The State
This just looks like a big landmine...
I have to agree, I think the big problem is that Ziegler will now be (or at least can be) associated with JS by the general public. Even if most of Ziegler's comments are anti-JS, they can still be written together in an article and portrayed differently by the media.
I don't disagree with that risk, but I think it's fair to wait until we see it before assuming as much.
Somewhere it says that JS will be asked what he thinks of Paterno. Unless he says that he couldn't stand Joe, it's not going to be a good response.
I am hoping that isn't what happened, but lets face it...the media hasn't been open to new information on the case. I would have rather seen Ziegler on his own. That said, JS pulls more viewers to hear what he has to say.
I would think that the Today show wanted to know what the new evidence was before they committed any air time for Zig. They may have thought it compelling, maybe they just thought they would get more viewers.
So Ziggy interviewed Sandusky and Dottie and successfully shopped it. Today Show surely messing up promotion because it doesn't mention star Ziggy. My hero. With friends like these...

I really hope Ziegler doesn't get on there and say basically "Jerry said he didn't do it! He said that him and MM were pals even after 2001!". Please let him have more than that....
I thought the next time I would see Jerry on TV would be for his obit. What good can come from it for PSU or Joe? The only people this helps is Jerry and Ziggy. PSU fans that buy into Ziggy are marks.
I will say this....it won't be sanction altering.
Why you may ask. Because I would hope that if anyone had anything so sanction altering that they would put it out right away, not give teases all weekend and wait for the Today show which is on when everyone is usually AT WORK.
If you guys haven't seen scott paterno's tweets, it sounds like the Paternos are cutting ties (if they were ever there in the first place) with Zeigler over this. sounds like whatever Zeigler is going to attempt to put out there will go against the Clemente's theory. Sounds like a pretty ugly parting of ways....
If it were sanction altering it would be on today and talked about all weekend. I hope I'm wrong but I won't hold my breath.
There is not one person in America, including myself, that would believe a word JS has to say in an interview.

All this stuff does is make us look bad.... The lawsuit or wait 4 years is our only hope
PENN STATE FOREVER
Judging by the twitter back and forth with Ziegler and Scott Paterno, I'm not sure we are going to like what JZ says. Not that the Paterno's are needed for stamp of approval, but it is a resounding we don't agree from Scott.
Ziegler is a publicity hound and cares most about himself. Check out his background and you will understand it is a mistake to be aligned with him. In the long run he will do more damage to the Penn State reputation, than good.
