A group of Penn State University trustees say they decided to fire legendary football coach Joe Paterno in part because he didn't do enough after learning of an alleged child sex assault involving a former assistant. They also cited concerns Paterno couldn't effectively lead the team in the face of the scandal.
Defeat doesn't finish a man - quit does. A man is not finished when he's defeated. He's finished when he quits. - Richard Nixon
I agree with the trustees for firing him. But Paternos knowledge of the situation and lack of doing anything about it deserves him a lot more than firing. It's a terrible situation for everyone involved, so its true he couldn't have led the team for another moment. I really find it hard to beleive that the trustees didn't know about all of this when it first happened, they should have taken matters into their hands a long time ago not in 2011.
I'm with you fellers, War Eagle!!!!!!!!
JoPa was the most powerful man at PSU. A few years back the University President went to Paterno's house to ask him to retire. Paterno kicked him out of his house. He was more powerful than the president. Now he wants us to believe he gave this Sandusky information to his "Superiors"! Come on Joe, you can't have it both ways!!
