    Do you agree with that.

    do you think Joe Pa who heard the story from the witness, had a larger obligation to make sure this guy got what he deserved then the witness himself?

    (morally?)

    What I meant is that he had a larger obligation than to simply pass it on to the AD.</P>

    Ridiculous.

    the person who heard a story from some random janitor has a larger moral obligation to seek justice then the janitor who witnesses the act himself?

    And I'm not saying that's wrong, what I'm saying is that it's worse not to do anything about something you SAW then not to do something about a story you heard from someone....

    and don't give me he went to Joe Pa....that's not enough...he was right in doing that but wrong in not going further, he should have stopped it then in there or should have went to the cops...without doing either of those things he's in the wrong...morally, and more so then Joe Pa.

    Obviously not. Since Joe Pa passed it along like an email forward.</p>

    This is the order I put them in Morehead.

    Morally Wrong worst to best.

    Worst - Jerry Sandusky (obviously on a whole different level)

    Then - Schultz and Curly for intentionally covering it up.

    Then - Mike McQueary and Jim Calhoun for not making sure the guy got what he deserved after witnessing the crimes themselves.

    Then - Paterno and maybe Spainer ... for only doing the minimum... and not taking it upon themselves to investigate the allegations further.

    even after reading that timeline?

    It seems that the sexual misconduct that occured was witnessed by the janitor who reported it to his superior and that it went no where.

    The assistant said that he saw them horsing around. I mean it seems to me that just from this that Joe Pa knew they were showering together. Im not sure what he was suppose to do wtih that? I mean at that time he wasn't working there, there was no sexual conduct, they banned him, took away his privilidges, and informed the charity.

    Which is kind of confusing how Matt Millen could be so surprised by this if hes on the board since they were notified

    because i don't expect more from someone just because they are bigger names. To be honest, I expected more out of the Janitor who SAW this happen and did nothing. Cover ups and lies from a football coach - if ur expecting something more then your just in denial

    but either way - we were all arguing misinformed points. When the assistant coach informed Paterno, it was not about sexual misconduct.

    I don't understand why you can't grasp the fact that seeing something happen is different then having someone tell you about it...so we are even.

    Oh well that's fine.

    All I'm arguing is that Calhoun and Mc whatever his name is the WR Coach are "More" morally wrong in this situation then Paterno is...not that Paterno is squeaky clean...but that those who actually witnessed the events take place have a larger moral responsibility then someone who was told about it.

    Re: THEE GAME IS vs THE BUFFALO BILLS ON OCT 16th!




    As the fate of Penn State football coach Joe Paterno
    hangs in the balance, new details have emerged about how the university
    failed to report the child sexual assaults allegedly committed by his
    former defensive coordinator Jerry Sandusky.
    </p>


    According to prosecutors, Penn State had multiple opportunities to stop
    Sandusky's alleged abuse. In 1998 two boys reportedly came forward to
    say Sandusky had fondled them in the team's showers. Campus police had
    eavesdropped on a conversation between Sandusky and one boy's mother.
    That mother recently described the exchange to local reporter Sara Ganim
    with the Patriot News.
    </p>


    "He admitted to taking the shower, he admitted to some extent something
    bad happened," the woman, who was not identified, said. "He asked her
    for forgiveness. He said 'I probably won't get it from you,' and then he
    said 'I wish I were dead.'"
    </p>The allegations against Sandusky include eight named victims who
    have testified that the coach befriended them through the charitable
    organization he founded, tried to mentor the boys, plied them with
    gifts, trips to sporting events and access to the Penn State football
    facilities, and then sexually assaulted them.



    </p>

    In 2002, <font color="#0000FF" size="4">graduate assistant coach</font> Mike McQueary allegedly saw Sandusky
    in the shower of the football team's locker rooms sexually assaulting a
    boy of about 10. McQueary told Paterno what he saw, and rather than tell
    the police, Paterno reported the information to his boss, Curly, and
    then never spoke of the incident again, according to a grand jury
    presentment.
    </p>Curly and his supervisor, Gary Schultz, did not report the incident to
    police. They then told Spanier that Sandusky had been seen acting
    inappropriately with a boy in the showers and had therefore restricted
    his access to campus grounds. Spanier approved, and did not contact the
    police.
