Posted on 11/16/2011 11:51:29 AM PST by LSUfan
A former child-abuse victim himself, former football grad assistant Matt Paknis believes Joe Paterno knew about Jerry Sanduskys alleged sexual abuse against children years ago.
Paknis joined WFANs Mike Francesa on Tuesday to talk about his time at Penn State.
Paknis was a graduate assistant on the Nittany Lions football staff in 1987 and 1988. He says Sandusky exhibited questionable behavior towards the players back then.

The plot thins.
I had read that Paterno had also given his wife the lease to the house for a dollar.
Since there’s no tax advantage or legal advantage for doing so, it can only come down that he’s protecting his assets from any civil lawsuits.
Kinda indicates that he had knowledge of his Sandusky’s activities.
I prefer, “The plot sickens”....
Imo anyone who thinks joepa was in the dark is delusional. He knew, he covered it up he approved.
Won’t be long till we get actual proof that 2nd mile/sandusky was pimping boys for donations. Just like the reporter who broke the case said on the radio last week.
Ever wonder why joepa had this immense influence? Because he had this dirt on everyone.
Mike McQueary’s statement to police doesn’t say he stopped attack or notified police about Sandusky allegations

Or....”the slot pickens.” :)
It is amazing how one person is found by the media to have the opposite view of most that have been interviewed and people on this forum jump in line.
The person interviewed is making assumptions, he has no facts. The ‘pimping’ reporter has gone silent, is that because they had no facts?
Let’s allow the legal process to proceed before we convict.
Do you really think if Paterno was covering up they would have continued to allow Sandusky access to the campus? They would have told him to stay away and would have had the leverage to do so. Let’s start using common sense and stop the wild accusations.
Most likely answer: Paterno knew about the 1998 incident where Sandusky admitted to showering with a young boy.
Then there was the 2002 witnessing of anal sex in the shower with Sandusky and a boy who appeared to be around 10 years old.
When Paterno was told of this it was almost certainly the SECOND time (if not the third or fourth or fifth) he was made aware of Sandusky in the shower with a young boy.
Almost 10 years later, they grew used to seeing Sandusky parading a bevy of young boys around PennState. And nobody thought anything of it after (at least) two reports of this guy in the showers with boys?
Strains credulity even more.
Lawyer: "You say anything about it happening and we'll make sure your name is all over the front page of every PA newspaper."
I’m common, I used my own sense and drew my own conclusions.
Consider that penn st hs been the most lgbt friendly campus in the country for a decade or more.
Consider that the campus admin are mostly gay.
Consider all the reports saying joepa had some dictaorial control over the intire institution.
Consider that most gay men become gay after sexual buse in their childhood or teens years.
Dude, i’m sorry if you like penn st footbal, but it was paid for by the prostitution of young boys. In my common opinion.
Here’s the most damning thing.
Jerry Sandusky was a coaching legend, the architect of “Linebacker U”. He’s 55 years old. No other program contacted him for a coaching job, at least publicly, why is that?
As one of my co-workers pointed out, when was the last time you saw Joe Paterno at a Penn State game wearing a headset? I honestly can't remember when.
If he isn't wearing a headset, he isn't calling any plays in the game. If he wasn't calling plays about football, his area of expertise, then it is entirely possible that he was clueless and just being paraded out to promote the Penn State brand.
If he's clueless about football, it is entirely possible that he is also clueless about what went on off the field.
We have a presumption of innocence in this country until all the facts are in.
The “reporter” who made the “pimping out the boys to PSU donors” charge, was one who started connecting the dots (back in April). He is Pittsburgh sports talker Mark Maden. And no...he has NOT backed away from the “pimping” out aspect of story.
You are correct on that point.
It is up to the state to prove otherwise.
Coaches didn’t always have headsets. Joe came from a different time, he still did things the same way he always did, why change?
It is amazing how one person is found by the media to
= = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = =
What is really surprising (well??) is they found this guy BEFORE finding a single girl friend, or for that matter schoolboy friend of the Occupant of the White House......or college transcripts etc etc etc
I predict that this case is going to become a new version of the Kennedy Assassination controversy. For the rest of the century folks will write books and produce documentaries about this. There will be analogies to the “Grassy Knoll” and the “Railway Men”. It will only serve to confuse the general public...but the general public will still spend big buck$ on those books and documentaries. Mindless...but addicted.
