    Apparently for Morehead and Lando...Popularity means that you are held to a different moral standard then if you are relatively unknown.

    I don't agree with that, I think everyone should be held to the same moral standards....I guess we are weird.

    [quote user="Morehead State"]I'm not arguing that at all. I'm arguing that Joe Pa had a far greater responsibility that he took on by meerly passing it on to the AD, and then working alongside the guy after that.[/quote]

    I'm not disagreeing with that, but I can see after years of dealing with similar issues (and I'm quite certain he has maybe not on quite the same scale in retrospec but similar) he became jaded and said...welp time to send another complaint form to the AD...and that IS wrong....BUT..



    [quote user="Morehead State"]I don't give 2 ****s about what an unknown temp. worker does.[/quote]</p>

    Not as wrong as this guy...who literally watched the crime take place...the fact that this guy didn't do everything in his power to make sure the Sandusky got what he deserves is morally reprehensible...it's many times worse then Joe Pa's indifference to a vague complaint.

    Its not popularity, its standing. With great standing comes great responsibility.</P>

    When your job is working with and mentoring kids. Establinshing foundations and building things that represent a University you do have a higher moral obligation. Athletes admit that all the time. I have to be better, I have kids that look up to me. I could find you countless quotes I'm sure. People in positions of power are held to a different standard than regular people. It's a fact of life, not a belief. Everyone should be held to the same moral standards but it's not the same in the real world. Joe Pa was told this was happening and turned his back to it along with many other people. There were 10's of warning signs and proof and no one did anything. Everyone is just as bad as the next guy but the most identifiable figure at Penn St will be held more accountable in a court of public opinion. Go read the comments on any ESPN story or any other site.

    The issue is that Paterno should have also gone to the police. Telling
    his bosses only did nothing more than relive him of his reporting
    duties. He probably thought by telling his bossess only, it was their
    baby now. Morally, he should have gone to authorities. He was made
    aware of a crime and did not report it. How many other boys were abused
    simply because he didn't report the crime?

    Paterno is an extremely powerful man and could have demanded that
    something so awful be addressed as the horrific crime that it is. He
    knew, but turned away. He may be spared "legally", but the man is a
    pathetic human being.

    How do they not understand that?

    The leader of Penn St is held to a higher standard and responsibility than a Janitor.

    No one protected those poor kids...

    Does Paterno have grandkids? (Yes, 17.) How would he feel if it were one
    of his grandkids in that shower with the coach? What would he have done
    then?
