I think you guys and gals will enjoy this one.
Like the rest of the Penn State Nation, I was shocked by the disgusting details of the Jerry Sandusky Grand Jury report that was leaked in early Novemb...
Definitely. I've been arguing with some people on another board about it.
Unfortunately, at this point it's obvious people have already made up their minds about Joe Paterno. Any new information they'll either discount because they think PSU is trying to make stuff up to better their image, or make excuses, etc. Just gets ridiculous how people instantly make up their minds without all the information.
My feelings ran right with the article. Based on what we know from the grand jury report, I felt like Joe didn't do enough. If the rumors that have been coming out lately are true (e.g. that he tried to ban Sandusky but was told he couldn't), then I'm wavering on that.
And like I've said elsewhere...people don't seem to realize how taking the moral stance of "Person A should have done more in this situation" can rapidly become a moral gray area.
Good read, to bad ESPN holds a monopoly essentially in regards to sports reporting.
I guess I should warn you, if I turn out to be particularly clear, you've probably misunderstood what I've said.
NBC has plans to reformat versus and directly compete with them. In fact, Dan Patrick is on their side and seems a little sour against ESPN. I listened to him little this morning and he was going off on ESPN for their hypocrisy. He stating what ESPN reported against paterno and then stating what ESPN said about their lack of action.
you can read about Patrick leaving ESPN on his wiki page. here's a little piece:
On his new show, Patrick often relates anecdotes of his ESPN career, in both positive and negative lights. He often refers to his former employer as "The Mother Ship" (and less frequently, "ESPeon"), and expresses disappointment with their practice of preventing their talent from appearing as guests on his show, and frustration when an ESPN employee has agreed to come on the show only to later cancel.
Called being a Monopoly. Which they are.
Great job Laschout and PSULions17. I couldn't agree with the article more. I had said the same about JoePa...let's wait and hear his side before we throw stones. ESPN threw stones and then said oh shit our scandal has been made public...awful quiet now about PSU!
