  •  Well if you can't fathom that an 80 year old man (0+ / 0-)

    might have a different world view than what is acceptable today then I don't know how to respond to that. I guess we should have punished all living souls during the American Japanese Internments when the country finally woke up to the atrocity.

    Forgetting about that, because your just wrong, what does the football program have to do with some off the field pedophile? And mind you, you may not want to admit it, but we're talking about one of the most respected college football programs in the country.

    The program has nothing to do with the deviant that some protected. The protectors have been punished. Why do you want more? To make a point? You have no qualms about fuking with the innocent players on the team?

      as you excuse it to be then he had no business coaching college football in this century. He should have retired or been forced out long ago with his reputation intact. And again, you're just making excuses for the inexcusable.

      And reread my last comment before spouting off. I don't "want" anything other than a fair and thorough investigation and the justice that will come from it. Apparently you've lost the ability to discuss the situation rationally as you've resorted to making false implications about what I've written and you're attempting to put words in my mouth by asking insincere questions.

        said he deserved what he got. You're the one trying to twist everything around so you can ride in as a white knight dogooder.

        If you have some beef with the football program spell it out. Stop trying to punish them for shit beyond their control. The folks that headed the program have been punished with the ultimate from the school and likely face further jeopardy in the courts. They are the one you so desperately want to lynch, why are you trying to punish innocent players?

          It's funny because while you imagine me riding in as a dogooding white knight I imagine you with clenched fists holding your breath and turning blue as you jump up and down calling people names while spittle flies out of your foaming mouth. Unfortunately for you I'm not riding in anywhere and I look horrible in white.

          Once again, read what I wrote and stop with the melodramatics. You're the one running around making claims that aren't supported by what I wrote. But hell, go ahead and continue to mischaracterize my words if it makes you feel better. Or call me more names if it suits your delicate ego because I really don't care what you think at this point.
