Ok...let's look at a couple of the more educated comment subjects. First, anyone having a problem with being told the Freeh report is flawed didn't read it. Why? Because they're lazy. If they would read it and put themselves in the shoes of Paterno, Curley, Schultz, or Spanier they'd quickly conclude their lawyers would be all over Freeh and PSU....probably before the ppress conference ended. Second to the PSU is sixth in its own state person...that's one helluva state, must be since the most recent "world" rankings have PSU consistently top 1000 worldwide (that's with about 20000) colleges ranked. Haters are gonna hate.
Wow! You, sir (and I use the term loosely), are a pathetic excuse for a journalist! Way to talk ill of the dead who isn't here to defend your baseless accusations and assumptions! Judging by the hate and vitriol displayed in your article, it's obvious to me that you are jealous of Joe Paterno and have been for a VERY long time! Next time you write an article about Joe Paterno or Penn State, I highly suggest you do your research and get those ducks of yours in a row! This article has only made you look like a petty, jealous, and incompetent fool!
Obviously Cushman is just another sports writer too lazy to read the Freeh report for himself. Evidence is clear that Sandusky was vindicated by law enforcement (whether right or wrong is subject to debate) and this was reported to Penn State, yet the Freeh report's conclusions seem to ignore this fact. Cushman aslo seems to biased to report on this subject.
What happened, the news used to be based on truth, now it's just slander, get a real job. RIP JVP.
Which Louis of the FBI do you trust to write a report that ferrets out the triuth.
Is it Louis of the FBI - the man responsible for Ruby Ridge and wrote the report that absolved his agency (and himself) of all responsibility. I think Louis came to the conclusion the shootings were justified because his agent's couldn't see the baby wasn't carrying a gun so they shot thru it's mother killing both of them to be sure - and then refused medical aid while she died slowly.
Is it the Louis of the FBI - the Mastermind of WACO who sent in his agent's with the wrong gear and then set the place on fire. How many did he kill because he was wanna-be cowboy. But guess what? In the report he wrote and his testimony before a Congressional Committee -- the FBI, under his superb leadership, did no wrong and blamed it on his boss - the Attorney General (Janet Reno).
I believe everything he wrote in the PSU Report. I do, Yes, I really do,
Nurse I'm ready for my medication.
I don't know what happened a PSU but I do know that Louis of the FBI doesn't have a clue either.
Tom Cushman et al. You need to learn the truth, and then write a story worth reading.
Here is a start to uncovering the real truth.....please read.
Cushman must have been one of the people they questioned in this poll... http://www.framingpaterno.com/sites/defaul…
A jealous bitter old man. Not Paterno... Cushman. Pathetic. Learn the truth.
so it sounds like people's idol has beed tarnished... too bad. this guy has been shown to be part of this horriffic problem for the university that will harm that university for a long long time. forget your unworthty idol...think of the children.
You Cushman are a Jerk!!
Watching these Penn State fans become completely unglued is priceless.
I'd imagine it's hard for them to come to terms with Paterno hiding a pedophile for more than a decade.
I'd wish they demonstrated as much outrage for Sandusky's victims as they are for their dead and rotting head coach and his merry band of misfits.
By the way, can Paterno hear "We ARE" down in hell? Or do the flames muffle it out?
this is not reporting....this is not journalism......this is trash
Wow, what a bitter place you are in! I'm guessing Joe wouldn't give you the time of day when you were a cub reporter in Philly, and you never quite got over it. This is a lousy excuse for journalism, barely worth a comment, but I'm eating lunch and had a minute. I heard Mayor Rizzo was a pr**k, too. Tell us about the two times you talked to him. I think he's dead, so you're safe!
Cleary, you have an ax to grind with Paterno regarding your newspaper career. That being said, your lumping him and his family into Sandusky's exploits and stating that he let him "run rampant" around the campus is just a lie. Sandusky's retirement package that gave him access to campus facilities had nothing to do with Paterno. It was actually handled by the current INTERIM president Erickson, but you'd never know that unless you dig, which apparently you don't believe in doing. The family is justifiably upset that Paterno's name has been dragged through the mud by media like you that rehash the lies the Freeh Report claims involved Paterno. There are several investigations ongoing that have found serious flaws in the report which was used by the NCAA as the basis for the sanctions they have imposed on the University.
It seems to me that nearly everyone at the Indy is petty and vindictive and out to "get" someone or something (The Gazette, for example) for past indiscretions real or imagined.
Is that really what the Indy is all about? Come on, grow up.
If not for reporters such as yourself, the world would never know how people with a grudge live and breath. It just goes to show how little research went into this article that is full of venom and hate. Such As stated eariler...let it go buddy. Holding on like this has made you a bitter bitter little man.
Jacob Tee falls in the same bucket as Tom Cushman - moron.
Best word for Tom Cushman "moron." You clearly don't know the facts buddy. Do your research before printing TRASH for website hits.
How about some examples from the 80's, the 90's, or even this side of the century mark? I've never believed in 'Saint Joe' but this/your article long on opinion and short on cited fact.
[switch gears] You tenacious Paterno Fans are giving Penn State Fans a bad reputation. Face it, Paterno was at the very least, loosely involved in the mess. Not to blame, but involved.
