Okay, I think Paterno's firing is the end of an era. He made a lot of college football history.

But all that is overshadowed by the things he allowed to go on under his nose. So the era ends with quite a tarnish on it.

I think you are quite right about that, sort of reminds me of the book by Pappy Boyington, he ends it by saying "Just name a Hero and I'll prove he's a bum."

I can't say I think a long winning streak at college football is much of an "era." It's just a streak is all. I could at least understand why so many Catholics buried their head in the sand and blamed the media when their Church turned out to be a systematic enabler of rapists, because it was such a dominant force in their lives and the sole conduit to an eternity in heaven.

But college football? Really? You're going to riot and blame everyone but the rapist enablers because your team won a lot while ten-year-olds were being sodomized in the locker room? I just don't get it.

Apparently you do not comprehend the similarity between Rabid Catholics and Rabid Football Fans, but don't ask me to explain because I am neither, I'm having my own problems understanding Rabid Athiests.

I suppose I've met them, but in non-college-football-related contexts so I wasn't exposed to a social identity so entrenched in the sport that they would literally look the other way if they happened upon a child being assraped by an assistant coach. I went to a Division III school where football was an excellent excuse for a party and grinding old rivalry axes, but that was pretty much it.

I am approximately as surprised by that as I am by Catholics rallying around abusive priests. For whatever reason, (successful) college football coaches, at some schools, get elevated to the same sort of respected mentor status in the community as a priest.

At times like this, I find The Onion is my "go to" source for insightful coverage.

Quote:
Describing the downfall of Paterno as "clearly the most devastating thing to come out of the sex scandal," outlets from ESPN to USA Today asked Sandusky's victims if, while being forced to engage in oral and anal sex with a man 40 to 50 years their senior, their primary fear was for Paterno's reputation—and, specifically, for how revelations of their suffering might diminish his two national championships, three Big Ten titles, and 24 bowl victories.

Oh yeah, that reminds me: "sex scandal." If I see one more outlet (other than The Onion of course :bow: ) call this a "sex scandal" I'ma start chopping balls with a rusty butterknife. A sex scandal is a homophobic preacher porking a rentboy on vacation, or maybe, if I'm feeling generous, a married politician taking a picture of his trimmed, tucked and waxed genitals for his porn star Facebook friend. What it isn't is decades of child rape covered up by the authorities.

I think thedoc is just upset at the outrage his Twitter posts caused.

Quote:
Ashton Kutcher came under fire when he sent out an uninformed tweet in response to the firing of Penn State football coach Joe Paterno. Kutcher, who has found himself in trouble before for his questionably insensitive tweets, posted, “How do you fire Jo Pa? #insult #noclass as a hawkeye fan I find it in poor taste.” (That tweet, pictured below, has since been taken down.)

And just what 'ways' does he need to mend, he is what he is, get over it.
He was just called on it (sh*t posting) recently in a thread by mickthinks. Didn't do much to prove otherwise. I think it was posted in the Atrium.
