Phil Knight = Jackass

Post by Turdacious » Thu Feb 16, 2012 1:49 am

Crediting him with building not just better athletes but better men, some 12,000 people -- including Penn State students, fans and football stars -- paid tribute to Joe Paterno in a campus memorial service Thursday that exposed a strong undercurrent of anger over his firing.

In a 2½-hour gathering that capped three days of mourning on campus, Nike chairman and CEO Phil Knight brought the near-capacity crowd at the basketball arena to its feet when he defended the coach's handling of child-sex allegations leveled against a former assistant. Paterno was fired two months ago by the Penn State trustees.

"This much is clear to me: If there is a villain in this tragedy, it lies in that investigation and not in Joe Paterno's response," Knight said. Paterno's widow, Sue, was among those rising to their feet.

"Dear Cobra Commander,

If you decide to use a nuclear weapon on American soil, would you be so kind as to use it at the campus of Penn State University.

Thank You,

Little Jimmy"


Fuck those people, children were violated and traumatized for the rest of their lives.

Fucking sick off people holding up Jock and Jock culture as special. "Grid Iron Warriors!" and all this bullshit. Seen more blood in fucking Mosh pits and spilled more outside the shows. The biggest nerd in school is worth more than the Quarterback any day.

I'd like to see a nerd run a wildcat offense against a blitz-heavy 3-4 defense that likes to drop the safeties into cover-2. Today's play-calling schemes are much more complex than those of yesteryear. You need to appreciate the art that is moving a lopsided ball down a grass field. These young men are our best and brightest. Respect that.
