The family of Joe Paterno turned down an offer from Penn State University, which sought to rename Beaver Stadium after the late college football leader in Division 1 coaching victories, according to a report from The Patriot-News yesterday.
How about Child Rape Stadium instead? That way you can name it after Paterno’s right hand man of many years Jerry Sandusky. I just realized how odd it is that the stadium shares its name with a slang term for female genitalia, when it’s now become synonymous with the type of acts that only NAMBLA would approve of; illegal and immoral behavior by a man who isn’t really interested in “beaver.” (allegedly)
(again how the f*** is Jerry Sandusky actually married? Who the f*** marries/stays married to [an alleged] child rapist?)
From Lost Lettermen:
The newspaper said the offer was part of a deal after Paterno died that was sought by the university, which would get a full release in return. That would have ensured that the Paterno family could not sue the school or speak negatively about it, the report said. The family reportedly refused the offer.
Another prong in the reported offer was for the university to honor Paterno’s contract, which it did anyway last week.
It was reported by ESPN.com – in a story that cited its news services, The Patriot-News and the school – that Penn State paid out the Paterno estate a package worth $6.7 million. It reportedly included contract bonuses and television and radio revenue among other things.
According to reports, the family remains upset about how the legendary coach was fired in the wake of the alleged Jerry Sandusky child molestation scandal. And it made a point to say that the money paid out was not a settlement but what was owed to Paterno.
