[quote=“tjb, post:8, topic:2795”]I haven’t given much thought to the janitors. I’ve been more concerned with the leadership.
I really don’t have a good grasp of what is right and wrong, just my own beliefs and opinions.
It is my opinion that ferreting out all the little people who were involved at this moment in time seems like more of an effort to protect Joe’s reputation than a concern that the culpability is appropriately proportioned.
I don’t see how it’s so hard to see that everyone involved is probably going to get theirs in this thing, and that we are just at the beginning. The BOT drew a line in the sand that there is something rotten here, they started at the top - in a move that may be primarily and on some level unfairly symbolic - and they say they will conduct a thorough investigation.
If there is any sense here that Paterno is going to be scapegoated here and that everyone else is going to be fine, I think that is unlikely. Highly. Paterno and Spanier are just the very highly visible step 1 - I hope and expect.[/quote]
I don’t think Paterno supports are ferretting out blame to protect Joe, so much…
I think there is a huge concern that Joe is being Scapegoated, and I think poeple are defensive of that happening. The media is crashing on Joe as if he did the crimes himself, and the person who cause this persecution of Paterno is still on PSU’s payroll.
I think the true question on people’s minds are if Paterno was intentionally put out there to be the scapegoat. The hungry media mob wanted Joe’s head, and the BoT, whether intentionally or not, handed him over.
Does curley survive until “a thorough investigation” is conducted? Why does Paterno NOT get the same benefit of the doubt?
