Just don't expect anybody to buy that garbage.
We were smart enough not to believe Paterno and his lies while you weren't, I doubt we will believe that you were the smart one here. All the facts are in on that one and they all point to you being unable to admit when you were wrong. People like that are the dumbest of all. You really hammered that home when you make an analogy between crucifying someone that covered up children being raped and giving up on a baseball team too soon.
Did you even read my entire post? Did you digest it before you responded? I admitted I was wrong. That's like the first point I made. But it's also pretty easy to point fingers at people who were wrong when all the facts finally come out. My stance in November was based on all the facts we knew at that point, which was basically that Paterno reported to the head of police what he heard and that Paterno was told it was being taken care of. Yeah ok, Paterno could have done more. Strangling Sandusky with his own hands is doing more. But that's not the point. The point is the court of public opinion was ready to jump the gun from every angle because they wanted so badly to see an idol fall. Well, now we know there was indeed a coverup, and Paterno was involved to at least some extent, so all you guys got your wish. I ended up being wrong when all the facts came out, and Paterno helped fukk things up at Penn State big time. His legacy is tainted and he deservedly got an unceremonious boot from the school.
And way to spin my analogy around to try to make it sound stupid. You obviously didn't understand it. I'm saying that jumping to brash conclusions before letting things develop is stupid. I'm not comparing raping children baseball. Where did you even come up with that?
Anyway, this is the last I'm saying on this topic, as the whole thing is full of negative energy and still seems surreal after nine months. Everyone who was involved and is still alive is going to get what he deserves.
