Anyone who can look the other way for so many years at children being brutally raped without doing something, ANYTHING, can not be "genuinely a good man". My opinion, of course!

There's a massive amount of thorns there but that doesn't mean there's not a rose there either.

Totally agree YD. Joe Paterno let his desire for winning teams dictate his decisions. A great coach ....? Perhaps --but at the expense of how many young boys? A very sad and unfortunate legacy to leave his family.

his son was just on the today show, talking about how he died with respect (PPFFTT) and how he showed his true colors by feeling sorry for the victim and blah blah fuckinblah!!!!

sorry.... he did NOT die with repect, he shamed his entire family!
BUT throughout the entire interview he called HIS DAD, Joe! who calls their dad by his first name?
to me, that speaks volumes......
