Lance Armstrong's Oprah Video Interview Provokes Little Sympathy (VIDEO, TWEETS)

Lance Armstrong's Oprah Video Interview Provokes Little Sympathy (VIDEO, TWEETS)

Commented Jan 18, 2013 at 17:32:20 in Canada

“After watching the interview with Oprah, I saw a complete insincere fraud who is just trying to save a what may be misiscule bit of his reputation. He was not at all believabel. In my opinion he is a complete narcissistic, self-serving sociopath. Forgiveness for what he did to others, by trying to take them down and sue people in the face of his lie is not a forgivable situation.”

Penn State Scandal: Jerry Sandusky Rumored To Have 'Pimped' Boys To Donors: REPORT

Commented Nov 29, 2011 at 22:34:07 in Sports

“I couldn't agree with you more. Sports has become such "big business", over paid athletes, over paid coaches and sports programs. College football brings in lots of money. My suggestion was shut down Penn state's football program for a minimum of 1 yr. Thats the only thing that gets attention... Money. It seems to take a higher priority over children and that literaSTINKS about as bad as any STINK ever could.

Money talks, sleeze walks. Get sports out of colleges and Universities and even highschools. priortize the education. I wonder how many sports jocks get passing grades just to stay on the football teams and other sports programs?”

Penn State Scandal: Jerry Sandusky Rumored To Have 'Pimped' Boys To Donors: REPORT

“Pull your head out of your sandbox. America and many other countries are cesspools for targeting children, selling them for porn, kidnapping them and using them as sex slaves. This same scenario that has happened at Penn State happened in Omaha, Nebraska in 1989, involving a Catholic home for boys called "Boys Town", Franklin Credit Union and Lawrence King who pimped out boys all the way to the whitehouse.

“Rings somewhat familiar to a story in 1989 about the Catholic Boys Town scandal, in Omaha, Nebraska, involving Lawrence King mgr. of Franklin Credit Union. I hope to God this is not true about Sandusky pimping out boys, but it wouldn't suprise me much if it turns out to be true.

In my opinion Paterno should have seen to it that it was followed up in this manner.I won't discuss these mute points with you any further”

“I couldn't agree more with what you say. What a coward he was, what a coward indeed. Fire him as well and bring charges against him for witnissing a crime against a child and not reporting it to the official authorities, not just Penn State”

“That is exactly what I thought. WHY didn't he intervene right there, right then! He's as guilty as the rest, because in my opinion he didn't have the moral fiber to do the right thing, at the right time, because he was protecting his own selfish A$$ and his job. He should be fired as well”

“Very well stated. It's time to put our children's well being above, money, greed, power and FOOTBALL. Personally I think the whole football agenda should be cancelled for at least one year. That will hurt them more than anything and perhaps teach a lesson that football is not more important than children, Shame on all of them for turning blind eyes to evil. It may also teach the students at Penn state who held their rioting in favor of Paterno rather than the children, that football is a game, where children are living breathing human beings that deserve better and are a million times more important”

“With all due respect, I do not believe for 1 minute that Paterno didn't know Sandusky was not quite right in his dealing with young boys, over all those years!
I believe he selfishly turned a blind eye to all of it, until finally due to media he had no choice. It's all about the glory of winning, football and the greed of the money, all at the stake of young boys lives who will never, ever be the same due to such preverted, selfish, greedy men. It's no different than the priests in the Catholic church, which were covered up by the Pope. All egregrious and unforgivable sins.

Your words "he took the proper steps in reporting what he was told (but did NOT witness) to two school officials".

NO, he most assuredly did NOT take the proper steps in reporting what he was told, he should have reported it to the police and all the proper authorities, not just the school officials.”

“Respectfully back, you may believe what you like. But it's only that, your belief, your opinion. But it's quite embellished for a non-factual statement. However, that's what the public is doing with this incident, creating their own versions of what happened.

As far as following legal procedures....YES he DID. As quoted by the Pennsylvania law:

Pennsy­lvania's mandatory reporting statute for suspected child abuse provides that when a staff member reports abuse, pursuant to the statute; the person in charge of the school or institutio­n has the responsibi­lity and legal obligation to report or cause such a report to be made by telephone and in writing within 48 hrs. to the Dept. of Public Welfare of the Commonweal­th of Pennsylvan­ia.

Joe Paterno reported it to the Athletic Director and the VP on BEHALF of McCreary. (JP was not the witness). They then spoke with McCreary (the witness) and told him that they'd act accordingly. They however, failed to do so.”

“All the feeble, ignorant, men who were involved in this case. were protecting each other for the hype and money of football. I just wonder how they'd feel if this happened to their son,or grandson.
To have kept this from the police and keeping it within Penn state is blatant evi. I am so disgusted by this putrid, disgusting coverup and the injustice done to these young boys, I can hardly speak about it, it makes me feel desparate for goodness, ethics, and all that is from a higher source. This is as low and dirty as it gets. I think everyone, and I mean everyone ionvolved in keeping this from the police should be punished to the max. Why in the world didn't the parents of these boys go to the police before now. I'll never understand this...never”
