Sue doing great. Emotional but steady.
"You can take bowl games and you can take external things from people, but you can't take a warrior's heart."
Thank you for this, at work and couldn't find it on to record it.
Clip just quoted sue saying "if the experts didn't know, how could we know"
Katie pulled the "I wish I would have done more" quote and Sue quickly corrected her saying she left out the first part of the quote. Amazing how all the media refuses to say the entire statement.
Wick said we don't know if Joe knew about 1998, because the email surfaced after his death. However, Joe had no recollection of the 1998 incident in 2011.
Panel with the kids on now (Diana, Mary Kay, Jay)
Sue references experts from adoption/foster child services and Second MIle not knowing
Clemente interview coming up
Sue is killing it so far, too bad no one will believe anything she says.
Clemente says people look right past the pedophile and look to other targets

Not many dry eyes in the house
Aaron Maybin and Greg Buttle in the audience - both said a few words
How would you like Joe to be remembered? Sue: "that's easy, what you see is what you get. the Joe you knew was real"
Clemente explaining grooming, says Sandusky was extremely effective
Sandusky 'tested' children a little bit a time, progressively. Children become accustomed to the molestation even as it is right under the noses of the parents
Clemente: "If someone wants to spend more time with your kids than you do, that's a red flag"
I watched the whole thing so far, and Sue, the family, the players present, etc. all handled it very well. I also would like to give Katie kudos because she asked tough, pointed questions, but also treated everyone fairly. FURTHER, she did what many talking heads on ESPN did not do, for the most part, she actually got the facts straight....you know....like a real journalist.
I handle differing opinions just fine. The lack of having facts or stating things so incorrectly I handle poorly, and with good reason I think
Suck It Emmert!! and "Sorry for not being sorry for being a Penn Stater" - Philafan
Just finishing the show now and just watching the faces in the studio audience, I think it pulled off its intent with Katie's demographic. Don't know what kind of ratings this show gets, but this seemed to successfully go after the women's vote.
For those that missed the show (including me), you may find more video on the link below. Currently, there are 2 links to Sue's episode.
I work with a bunch of cynical cops and Sue has a lot of them thinking twice about their set in stone opinions of joe. As a cop, I will say she is doing more for child abuse awareness rather than turning the focus to football like the NCAA did.
A lot of women watch the Katie show. Sue may have done more to turn the tide of opinion than anything else.
Sue was/is amazing. She brought up a really good point - They let Sandusky play and be alone with their own grand kids... Is that something you do when you know a guy is a molester?
Also Joe was supposed to pick this up after one incident - an incident that sandusky was acquitted on and which the victim stated nothing happened there... But the parents, 2nd mile, etc that were dealing with him constantly missed it too. And the one parent that did pick up on it had welfare services drop the ball...
He ain't heavy - He's my brother!
She said that? That's certainly interesting.
Yeah, she didn't hold back, but most of all she didn't victimize herself or the paterno's. I thought it was going to be a plea about saving joes legacy, when it was solely about discussing what happened at Penn State and how Penn State completely mishandled the situation.
No offence but cops should be the ones with the most understanding of how he got away with it. We see people bury their heads in the sand and 100% convince themselves that it can't be real or truely get fooled by people all of the time with child victims. People can't deal with it. It's why I have said from the start that this was dealt with so poorly in relation to educating the public as to how people like Sandusky work and why adults have to open their eyes and question things.
The problem is that PSU or Sue can't really do this as the general public isn't listening and judges them as self serving before they hear what is being said.
The NCAA had a huge oppertunity to do some real good by bringing this topic into the light and forcing people to see how the Sandusky's of the world operate. Can you imagine how different the talking heads would be dealing with this issue if the NCAA had come out with Clemente's report and that they worked with PSU to maybe use that 60 million to create an educational program on full scholarship where graduates would come out and work both on education and prevention of child sexual abuse and working with the vicitms going forward. Some good might actually have come out of this instead of the mess that is here now..... sorry, done now....
edit: to be clear, I love what Sue is out there saying, just wish more outside of the PSU community would take the time to listen.
