Football-Obsessed America


Gary Pinkel defends Joe Paterno

HOOVER, Ala. (AP) – Missouri coach Gary Pinkel says he thinks it is “wrong” to place sole blame for the Penn State tragedy on former coach Joe Paterno.

Talking with reporters at Southeastern Conference Media Days on Tuesday, Pinkel was quoted as saying “you can’t take away the greatness of this man. He was a great man, and you can’t, however you analyze this, all of a sudden erase all that this guy’s done. You can’t do that. Nobody can do that.”

“Greatness.”  Sure, because we can’t wreck the reputation of the man who cured cancer by grinding over a wee little matter like covering up the child molestation on the part of one of his direct employees, and his own apparent perjury in front of the Grand Jury.

Pinkel is already settling in as an SEC school head football coach.  He’ll fit right in.

Ironically, I’m writing these words from Columbia, Missouri.

Every sort of crime gets committed, and excused, in the name of football. It’s really disgusting.

It's your dime, spill it. And also...NO TROLLS ALLOWED~!
