Penn State

Fans Show Love For Joe Paterno

11/12/2011 7:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Joe Pa support at Penn State
Tailgating is underway outside Beaver Stadium, and the Penn State fans are showing the love for their legendary ex-coach, Joe Paterno

According to an onlooker, several fans are sporting t-shirts, decorating cardboard cutouts (see below) and carrying signs in support of JoePa . So far, we're told the crowd is well-behaved.

As we previously reported, FBI and police responded to a bomb threat made last night -- but nothing was found.

A plane just flew overhead (see below) with a sign that, according to multiple witnesses, reads: "Joe is so dirty he needs a shower."

Trust us, that's what it says.

The BLUE of PENN STATE must now represent the BLUE marks left behind from MONSTER PERVERT SANDUSKY inflicted on young boys behinds.
-----------------------------------------------------------
Alums at a "loss of words", same thing they did for 10 YEARS when young boys were RAPED in the PENN STATE showers.
-----------------------------------------------------------
They should be cheering that their PERVERTS are JAILED!
-----------------------------------------------------------
They should be cheering for JAIL TIME for MONSTER SANDUSKY.
----------------------------------------------------------- PENN STATE (PERVERT STATE) and their CODE OF SILENCE and the apparent stupidity of the student body contributes to the RAPE of young boys in the PENN STATE showers!
-----------------------------------------------------------
Bet Tailgaiting and HOT DOGS don't "taste" the same today.
Might be a reminder of PENN STATE Sexual Abuse of Young Boys.

Look up the former player who sent the child molester money for his legal defense and is asking others to do the same.

It looks really bad and they're not doing their team any favours.
Cognitive dissonance:

It's nowhere near a fair comparison, but people cried when Stalin died. I don't think it is easy for people to rectify conflicting beliefs about their icons, in this case that (by many accounts) he was one of the greatest coaches ever and failed massively in dealing with what happened. See also some MJ fans.

With the drinking that goes on at these games, this is going to end badly. They should've banned alcohol!

Why would anyone support this piece of trash?? He covered up sexual abuse to CHILDREN because he cared more about football.
I pray to God that none of his family ever have to experience sexual abuse. It changes your soul-those poor boys.

I have a feeling we're going to find out "Joe Pa" and a few other high ranking folks at the school were buggering some of those boys too. Pedophiles cover for each other.

Penn State should simply be turned into 'Pennitentiary' State Prison for Sex Abusers and the entire coaching staff can be locked up. Just needs a fence with barbed wire strung around the campus. Nobody should want to study there in the future. Sure hope Joe Paterno is charged criminally in this coverup.

Unfortunately in every society there are bad people and the people coming out in support of FauxPa are bad people, entirely souless. No decent person would EVER throw support behind a man responsible for not preventing the ongoing molestation of children. FauxPa is despicable and so is McQueasy.

The Penn State student who called into Harvey's show the other day trying, unsuccessfully, to defend FauxPa sounded like a complete raving lunatic.
