The Freeh report has been released, and its allegations are damning for Joe Paterno and other members of Penn State's leadership. Do the report's revelations justify the university's decision to fire Paterno?
pittsburghjoe2: "Joe Paterno's statue needs to be removed."
pennsylvania12194: "As a PSU alum, the football program deserves all the punishment they'll get but please guys, leave the University itself out of this. Shut the football team down for good but the thousands of students and faculty who had no knowledge of this coverup shouldn't be punished. Rip Paterno's statue down, and let Curley, Shultz, and Spanier rot in prison for the rest of their lives. Those four are the ones who deserve the hatred and contempt besides Sandusky himself."
steverubis: "After this how can anyone with a sound mind or conscience defend PSU or Joe Paterno?"
dnasty3499: "PSU did nothing wrong here. Everything that happened was nothing but common human mistakes. Rest in peace Joe PA."
PhiSixFly: "I don't understand how Paterno really covered up here... He followed the procedure and reported it to the officials. Schultz deserves to go to jail for this and even spanier, but if you actually read it, mcqueary and paterno seem to have reported it up the chain."
Sources Are Always Credible: "ALL of these guys screwed up, not just Paterno. "
juvserr: "PSU Board of Trustees are culpable to the hilt, every one of them should resign or be thrown out - their enabling created the environment that made this whole nightmare an eventuality."
Loveulions2: "I'm a life long PSU and Joepa fan, but there is NO defending these men and to think that you can is insane. I have lost all respect for Joe, and I don't care about the graduation rates, the wins, and all the good he did now. "
dxp232: "Unfortunately it is just as bad (really much worse) then even I thought it was... I am not going to pick on the JoePa (hopefully "former") supporters and I still think PSU is one of the best schools in the country but obviously these men only cared about protecting their precious football program and their reputations."
marbleheadmaui: "OK, I finished the report. It is as bad as one could possibly have imagined. The men involved in the ongoing coverup all belong in prison. Paterno is disgraced."
NittanyLionsJJM: "As a Penn State alumni, I hate everyone involved with this just as much as the next guy, but I just can't find any hatred for JoePa. "
