Sports: Football Morons

It was the best of times, it was the worst of times. The whole fiasco, or should I say tragedy at Penn State sickens me. The former football coach has been indited on 10 counts of child molestation that occurred on campus - all under the guise of his children based charity.

SICK. Beyond sick. A complete disgrace. Yeah this waste of skin son of a bitch doesn't deserve to live. There is nothing worse than hurting a child - nothing. That's obvious though. Here is what really ticks me off besides the obvious. The other coach who saw it and did NOTHING. Or the fact Joe Pa really did NOTHING once he found out about it. The Athletic Director, the coaches, anyone who knew has to go and be accounted for. I'm sure they will.

Why? Why did they do absolutly nothing? Because the PROGRAM is bigger than life. The coach, the former player and grad assistant saw it and did NOTHING. The AD was told and did nothing. What kind of friggin moronic wuss does nothing? He was in shock for fear of going against the program...of losing his job. Because FOOTBALL IS LIFE. It's everything at Penn State and many other universities.

Screw you Joe Pa. Your legend is over. You should have been gone along time ago anyways, now this seals your silly fate. Screw you football coach who did NOTHING. You are another waste of skin. Mr. tough football guy couldn't even protect an innocent child. Unreal.

But this is my point. The almighty program, the game, the school, football culture is more important than doing the right thing. It's how they are coached, how they are trained, what is expected of them. They are above the law. Don't believe me? Do a google search of football players who have been arrested.

Don't misunderstand me. I love football, the game. I love the beauty of all sports, the strategy, the memories a child who plays can take with them forever. I love the weekend warrior aspect of it. I love it. However the football culture, and yes I'm generalizing, breeds cover ups to save their programs. That is just wrong! That is what has happened at Penn State, a team that I've always liked. Is it happening elsewhere? Maybe not this same tragedy, but other coverups? bet. Ohio name it.

When I was a kid, I watched a television movie called Something For Joey. It was the John Cappelleti story, a Penn State player who played for his younger brother who was terminally ill. As a kid I really loved that movie. I've seen it once since, but it always stuck with me. Well Joe Pa, do you think all the little Joeys in the world deserve better than what you did? The most wins in college football history means NOTHING. You celebrate your career and everything that goes along with it, while you knew of this?
