Penn State t-shirt calls the NCAA communists

Looks like it's time to start making "Pedophile State University" t-shirts

8/9/12 in NCAAF   |   Pat   |   5138 respect

The folks at Penn State are still a little upset that the NCAA decided to come down pretty harshly after they found out that at kids had been raped on campus for over a decade without anyone in the football program doing a damn thing about it, despite having full knowledge of the situation.

For some reason, they equate that with communism, leading to the sale of this t-shirt at the student bookstore at Penn State.

Let's forget the fact that this has absolutely nothing to do with the concept of communism. Once again, the Penn State crown continues to have the most inexplicably twisted priorities in the world.

They got in trouble in the first place because people in influential positions thought that the legacy of the football program was more important than protecting children from a dangerous predator.

Now, they're completely forgetting the atrocities that occurred under their watch, and acting like the NCAA is overstepping their bounds by punishing them for something that is most definitely within their authority.

If these are ok, then I guess that it would be fair to make "Pedophile State University" apparel with Penn State colors, right? Makes sense to me.

Now, former student-athletes are appealing the NCAA decision to forfeit wins from 1998-2011, as if that's going to suddenly validate their college careers any more or less than they already are.

It's a slap in the face to the many victims of Jerry Sandusky's assaults, which were completely ignored by former coach Joe Paterno. Yet to these former players, those wins are more important than the victims.

Stay classy.

What Penn State players and students should REALLY be upset about: They're putting names on the back of the players' jerseys.

It has always been about "the name on the front of the jerseys, not the one on the back." Not anymore. Hell, Penn State doesn't even have the team name on their jerseys at all, why do they need to add player names?

Now, in every way imaginable, Penn State is just going the completely wrong direction. The only positive coming out of this is that they're also adding a blue ribbon to the uniforms in support of child abuse victims. But still, the Penn State community is a clueless bunch, overall.

Hopefully they'll figure it out someday, but I doubt it.

Here is the problem with that logic, we have tons of prison all over the country and still have states which use the death penalty. Where has it stop the crime??? People know if they do something wrong or help cover it up they could go to prison and may even get life or death sentence. Still people choose to go ahead and commit those crimes, if Jerry was not worried about doing the crimes and even if Joe would have done something right away it is foolish to sit here and think nothing would have happen to PSU in today’s day society. We would have had people screaming from the top of their lunges because using this case it was not known with the first few victims. With that sanctions would have gone against the program anyway. True if they would have come clean back in then less sanctions would have some, but that is only because it would not have been on 100 channels every day all day wonder what happen.

yeah sweep it under the carpet and let Sundusky get his butt thing on!!!

Sheeeesh... just do the right thing!!!!
He is in prison where he belongs and Joe P should be ashamed wherever he is!

Yes, that seems asinine. Mostly because it's a completely invalid comparison, and not reflective of my logic in any way, shape, or form.

Also, if you actually sat down and did a thorough analysis of the money that Penn State made while protecting a child molester, the punishment continues to make more and more sense.

But you're ok with it, as long as the students get to see their beloved Nittany Lions go to a bowl game. Because THAT'S what really matters, right?

Seriously. You're complaining about a couple bowl games and some scholarships. Somehow, you think that's punishing hundreds of thousands of people.

In all reality, it's only punishing 15 student athletes per year who might have gotten those scholarships.

And trust me... no one is knocking down the doors at Penn State. Those kids will get a scholarship somewhere else, and at the end of the day it will trickle down to the point that a couple crappy division 2 players won't get a free ride. God forbid.

It actually is a completely accurate comparison because you're lumping everyone affiliated with Penn State Football with Jerry Sandusky, just like I was lumping everyone that has anything to do with Boston in with Whitey Bulger. You just don't seem to want to admit that it wasn't the entire football team that protected Sandusky, it was only a few people placed in the right spot. Furthermore, I keep making the argument that this was out of the jurisdiction of the NCAA, which you also seem to know but are unwilling to admit. The NCAA getting involved just adds fuel to the fire and makes the whole situation worse, not just because this is out of their jurisdiction, but because it's obvious that the only reason the NCAA got involved in the first place was because of the high profile nature of the case. Where was the NCAA when Johnson-Kulianous was caught running a crack house at Iowa? Where are they on the Miami violations with the Ponzie scheme guy? Why is it they have to investigate other schools but just settled for what some guy said on this matter? I don't remember them scheduling a nationally televised press conference for the sanctions they gave to Ohio State. Or for USC for that matter, or for Oklahoma a couple years ago when they made the school vacate wins. But due to the nature and severity of this the NCAA had to get involved, but not because it's the right thing to do mind you, the right thing to do was to have been on top of sh!t in the first place and taking care of this YEARS ago or just let the police handle it. They did it because they got attention from it. They got on Nationally televised tv for an hour and they got every newspaper and magazine in the country to print thier names. That's what really makes me f##king sick about this whole situation, the NCAA took the petty and vindictive nature of the 'mob' in order to get some pub. Also, Penn State loses more than the opprotunity to play in 4 bowl games, they lose that money and they lose all conference money from bowl games as well as the conference championship game. So in reallity, they lose a lot more money than you even think but I could care less about that, I actually think they do deserve that because that hurts the administration more than anyone else. Finally, at the very least the loss of scholarships punishes the entire football team due to lack of performance and the fact that they can't play in a bowl game. In the grand scheme, it hurts all the fans, alum and students of Penn State as well. Whether you agree with it or not, the NCAA is fuelled by fans that are very passionate about their schools and teams. Without the fans, the NCAA sports wouldn't exist, we would have a series of pro leagues like Europe has in it's place. College sports is very unique to the US. And I agree with you, nobody is knocking down the doors of PSU to play there but probably not for the same reasons I'm wagering. Not because they're not any good or because they're not popular, because Penn State will forever be "that school where a guy raped some kids". They have multiple National Championships and they're one of the most recognizable schools in the NCAA. When good, they're a top 5 program, when bad they're a top 20 due to legacy alone. All that is ruined WITHOUT the NCAA gettting involved. The NCAA basically kicked the program while it's down just so they could become more popular, and it's sad that people are falling for it it Lemmings jumping off a cliff. If you were able to separate emotion from fact I think you'd see things a little differently, like even though his stats aren't the greatest, Jeter must be pretty f##king good to play at a high level for as long as he has(Yes, I know Jeter has nothing to do with PSU, but I remember you doing pretty much a weekly article on how overrated he is because you're a die hard sox fan).

Joe Paterno is responsible for the entire team.  When he messes up (and if we're being honest, he was a felon) the whole team messes up.  That's why the entire team is responsible. 

Also, the team has decided they are ok with the penalties. Yes, it sucks for the players, but they were all given an out.  Many of them have chosen to stay and deal with the sanctions.  Good for them.  That was their choice.  They have decided to stick with the penalties.  Nobody was given a unfair punishment that they didn't choose.. not even the team.

Sometimes, you need to make the punishment harsh enough that some people have to think twice before making the same mistake again.

1) That doesn't make sense. In this situation it would be more like the culprits family losing their drivers licenses' or their jobs. 2) What mistake did the students and fans make that they need to be made an example of? I think you're trying to lump anyone and anything that has/had anything to do with Penn State in with Jerry Sandusky, which is wrong and unfair. And what's really sad is that this seems to be the modis operandi for about 95% of the people out there. What Sandusky did was horrible, and it's even worse that a few people at Penn State covered it up, but DON'T lump everyone at Penn State into that group. This was the wrong doing of about 5-15 people, not the 100,000+ that show up to games on Saturdays in the Fall. Plain and simple, these sanctions don't hurt the 5-15 that are actually to blame, it only punishes the 100,000+. How is that right? And I ask again, how does it help the victims?

By levying punishment to the program after the fact, it demonstrates that it's futile to attempt to "save" the program by covering up a crime. Perhaps, someday down the road, this will convince someone that it's better for all parties involved to just do the right thing.

Arrest those who were involve and those who had some knowledge of what happen and stood by, punish. I understand that and it makes sense, even taking down the statue and taking away wins, which honestly should have been the ones in which Penn St. got while the kywag was there coaching. Now with all that said the NCAA did overstep and people will say it was right because of the crimes that happen is unforgiving, but really how is the sections against Penn St. fixing anything?? That's right it will make others think twice about doing it at another school or looking the other way right?? NO!!! if the thought that it is wrong does not enter his mind neither will wait if I do this this school may face serious sections.... wait that's right I also may go to jail. Even if they do not go to jail his career would be over for not stopping it when he found out. This would be like someone doing this crime two houses down from you and because of it the major of you city/town decided because of it now everyone must be in by 6pm and cannot come out till 6am for two years. So yes I can understand why the students and athletes are upset, they are the ones paying for what this sicko did and they had not help him do it nor did they look the other way when they hear or wittiness something that should be reported. No I am not PSU fan and could care less how the football team does. but I can see why they are upset. Punish those who hurt the kids and/or look the other way when they had knowledge of something that went on. Fire them and if you can send them to jail.

IDK, The Actions Of Sandusky Are Going to Taint The School And Everyone Involved With It. Sucks For The Students, Alumni And Student Athletes That Were Hoping For A Bright Future Of Football @ Happy Valley. I Wouldn't Say That He Should Have Kept Coaching, He Should Have Been Fired Immediately And Warranted An Arrest.

I don't like the shirts.... at all.  HOWEVER, I do agree that the NCAA did overstep their boundries.  This is a CRIMINAL case, therefore the NCAA had no right to sanction the school.  The only people that got hurt by the NCAA sanctions were the students and fans of Penn State.
