Please try not to hate us students or think of us an unruly. We riot nearly once a year this is third riot I've seen...yeah it's dumb but I don't know of any other school who shows their pride and school spirit that prominently and on a moments notice. We really just want one more game with Joe Pa and to see him go with dignity. It was somewhat of a relief to hear earlier that he was retiring at the end of the season, but it was so shocking when the student body found out Paterno was fired via a phone call. He deserves more respect than that.
Man, you're so lucky I'm not an admin anymore.
Why? You don't go to the school and you haven't been a fan since childhood. My parents grew up watching Joe Pa. To see the most beloved man on campus, one of the reasons many of the students came to Penn State, be fired and treated like he did not mean anything to the community. The board of trustees knew shit like this was going to happen if they fired Paterno. He's an icon and a living legend. If your beloved MJ were to be kicked out of the NBA...any time in his career, let alone his last home game of the season, would you be okay with that?
what if it was your kid that was in the shower getting molested and joe pa kept it under wraps? you are so delusional, its ridiculous. mj didnt cover up a child molester, to compare them is absurd. his whole career has been tarnished because he knew what happened and didnt stop it. who cares if your parents watched him, it doesnt change the facts. 400+ wins doesnt mean shit compared to 8+ people having to live with the fact that they were molested.
