Actually they do..a good friend from the Elk's(and was at the club 3 weeks ago) went into the hospital 2 weeks ago thinking he had pneumonia.They found cancer in his stomach and liver .Linwood died in Hospice a week later.He was 88 and one helluva good man.

I have known a few people that were diagnosed and died the same week as the diagnosis. That is a pretty ignorant statement to make.

Sure they do. Check out khosk's stickied post in the cock pit for a pretty recent example.

Once again, I hope this all gets exposed and those that looked the other way be called to account. It really can't get any uglier.

History suggests that would have been highly unlikely.

Most people would have been shocked enough to do the right thing early on.

As more stuff comes out, it's not a stretch to think that maybe JP was of the same ilk as JS.

He may actually have gotten off on hearing about JS's exploits.

Protecting a legacy doesn't really add up with how long this was allowed to go on. This is pure conjecture, but JP may have been in the closet himself for that matter.

You misunderstood

Here is the quote again

So, this is the opinion part. No problem here. Its his opinion, it just happens to be wrong, but thats ok to have a wrong opinion.

Quote:

This is where he gets into trouble. He makes a declarative statement, as if its common knowledge, or better yet, common sense. The thing about common sense is that there is no such thing, we've just let ourselves believe as a society that its real, allowing people to make up wildly inaccurate conclusions about the world.

The timing is suspicious but I think that a more reasonable opinion is that the stress that was caused by his poor decisions in the past caught up with him and took a toll on his body and made it more difficult to fight off his ailments.

Just read the story on ESPN. I never really thought anything about Paterno other than he was an overrated football coach whose cult of personality made it seem that he was more than he actually was. Now I just think he was an utter scumbag who obviously know Sandusky was a predator but willingly kept him on staff. That statue of Paterno should never come back to Penn State and they should whitewash his entire persona from their program. What a low life.

Dottie Sandusky makes a statement today about the new allegations:

Quote:
Dottie Sandusky, wife of the retired defensive coordinator found guilty of 45 counts of child sex crimes in 2012, maintained her stalwart support of her husband.

“They’re not truth. They’re not right,” she said of the allegations, including claims from the 1970s that say longtime Nittany Lions coach Joe Paterno didn’t just know about but dismissed a child’s claim.

“There’s just so many discrepancies in them,” she said.

“It’s not fair to his wife and family. It’s totally, totally crazy. Someone needs to get to the truth, and I’m hoping we will get there,” said Dottie Sandusky. “These allegations are ridiculous. There’s no way. Joe Paterno is not that kind of a person. He would not have put up with that. He would not have brushed it aside the way they are saying. I wish someone would get to the bottom of it.”
Freakin weirdo. She heard the kids screaming in the house and did nothing.

First of all, I've lost a number of close family members and friends to cancer over the years, so I'm quite familiar with cancer and how quickly it can kill.

The facts surrounding that whole scandal and the timing of him announcing he had cancer and then dying very quickly afterwards, seemed very suspicious to me. I've also seen a number of people over the years commit suicide because they didn't want to go through the physical and mental agony of dying from cancer. And they didn't want their families to go through all that. Paterno's entire life was football. Imagine how hard it must have been for him having all this come out about him that everyone was going to know that he didn't do something to stop it. I think it would have been just too much for him to deal with so he killed himself. Do I know this with a certainty, no. But it seems a lot more likely that he did commit suicide rather than go through the shame he had put his family through.

I'm sorry I'm not given the right to express my opinion on here like everyone else. Especially reading some of the moronic opinions by you and others above that spout off from time to time on here.
