And yes, they were talking about Penn State coach Joe Paterno and the Jerry Sandusky case.
And the big question was, WHY DID JOE COVER IT UP?
That all this crap about the team’s legacy WOULD NOT HAVE BEEN MUCH OF A FACTOR IN 1998 when this first came up. You simply fire the guy – Sandusky – and tell him don’t ever come back to this campus. You take away all his privileges and turn it over to the law.
End of story.
Then if Jerry turns out to be a child rape guy, you did all you could to stop it from happening again and Joe would not be blamed. End of story.
And one caller made it come clear to people like me, realists. A guy called and said, “Hey obviously these two guys were tight. They worked together for years, hung out, went to dinner, traveled together, drank together and so on.”
AND SO SANDUSKY MUST HAVE HAD SOME BIG TIME DIRT ON JOE!!!!
The light bulb went off in my head. The caller guy was RIGHT.
He didn’t know what Sandusky may have had on Joe or have any evidence that he did, but it’s the only thing that makes any sense.
NOT THIS CRAP ABOUT PATERNO’S LEGACY.
That’s the bull crap media cover story because they have no idea what really happened.
So old Jerry had old Joe by the short hairs for sure.
Maybe on a little tax evasion. Maybe on cheating on his wife, who knows? Sandusky may have had some dirt on some of the other higher ups as well. Those who play together, know about each other.
And the higher in the tower you climb, the more grey area you step in and through.
Maybe even a bunch of cheating moves for his penalty-free Penn State team. Again, who knows?
But there must have been a truck load of it to scare off Joe Paterno!
Like this caller, I have no other information. However I think the media – who loves this story second only to OJ and now the Cinemark Massacre in Colorado – needs to put a few reporters on this.
I have faith it’s the reason for the long coverup. Nothing else makes sense.
P.S. the Joe and Jerry story is way bigger than the Batman shootings. That leaves the news, uh, now. It’s not good for America to keep hearing how unsafe our movie theaters and malls are.
The powers to be kill those kind of stories fast. Like, how much have you heard lately about that big NFL cocaine bust? The one in which the busted NFL player said 20 more NFL players were involved. Or the serial killing story about one of our soldiers shooting women and children for no reason in the Middle East.
What was that guys name again?
See what I mean? But the Joe and Jerry story will live on.
