'About Time'

JoePa Statue Came Down

EXCLUSIVE

0722_max_kellerman_videoSports radio host Max Kellerman thinks Penn State did the right thing in taking down the statue of Joe Paterno -- in fact, he thinks they need to go further. 

We caught up with Max at LAX today where he said it was "about time" the statue of JoePa came down. Max said he believes Paterno's actions in the Jerry Sandusky child abuse action outweigh all the good that he's done ... and that Penn State shouldn't stop with just the statue. 

Max told us, "The fact that they still want to name the library after him? Come on, man."

you want to take his name off the library? you might as well burn it down then and build a new one (without all of JoePa's money).

Max Kellerman, max respect. This guy has been on it from the word go. Max Kellerman and people like him will be th o nes that make sure that Pedo State U don't get away with this with a slap on the wrist.

Max because of his job could have stayed away from making any controversial comments and rocking the boat.

Big props Max Kellerman.

NCAA do the morally right thing listen to people like Max Kellerman.

Shut down Pedu State U program forever. Remove all paterno records form Pedo State U. Remove all victories that Pedo State U won during the raping of children period.

Let them still name the library after him and they can name the children's section (especially the little boys section) after Jerry Sandusky. After all, that's the way the school thinks. They don't really see anything wrong with what happened. They just don't want some people vandalizing the statue, that's why they really removed it. Not because they were embarrassed. Had they been embarrassed they would have said it was being melted down and not locked in a secure location.

The statue should have stayed as a tribute to Joe Paterno's contribution to Penn State football. What Jerry Sandusky did doesn't change Joe's achievements or his entire life's endorsement of State College and PSU.
