    NY Times: Paterno Won Sweeter Deal Even as Scandal Played Out

    I thought it could hardly get any worse.

    But apparently it does.

    JP didn't just cover up child rape, he attempted to profit from it when things started to get hot.

    From the article:

    Mr. Paterno was to be paid $3 million at the end of the 2011 season if he agreed it would be his last. Interest-free loans totaling $350,000 that the university had made to Mr. Paterno over the years would be forgiven as part of the retirement package. He would also have the use of the university’s private plane and a luxury box at Beaver Stadium for him and his family to use over the next 25 years.

    ...

    Mr. Paterno quickly issued a statement saying, in effect, that the board need not act, that he would resign at the end of the season. Neither he nor the university revealed that he had effectively agreed to do so already, in return for an expensive financial package.

    ...

    At a board of trustees news conference Friday, Karen B. Peetz, the board’s chairwoman, made clear that the issue would not be revisited. “Contracts are contracts,” she said.

    $350K in interest free loans? WTH did he use those for?

    Our very own forum. Awesome. Thanks to whomever is responsible.

    Here's my favorite part:

    In the end, the board of trustees — bombarded with hate mail and threatened with a defamation lawsuit by Mr. Paterno’s family — gave the family virtually everything it wanted, with a package worth roughly $5.5 million. Documents show that the board even tossed in some extras that the family demanded, like the use of specialized hydrotherapy massage equipment for Mr. Paterno’s wife at the university’s Lasch Building, where Mr. Sandusky had molested a number of his victims.
    The Paternos used nothing short of strong-armed tactics to get what that wanted. The BOT had to acquiesce to their demands or risk the danger of riots. Another example of lack of institutional control.

    Paterno's are making a grab for everything they can get before the onion is peeled completely and the BOT is completely new!

    Paterno was a greedy hypocrite. How much did the BOT raise student fees and tuition to 'cover his azz?

    Paterno was vile. His family is vile.

    I didn't think they could look any worse. Ugh.

    Yes, that seems like a reasonable thing to do. I wonder, do you think at this time the statue is under guard from anyone or group that would do it harm now?

    I have to say if I were on PSU campus now I might be taking the duct tape and blindfold to the statue and do a little decorating to Coach's mouth and eyes. And, of course I would use Websleuths Bail Service once I was arrested.

    Websleuths does have a bail service for members, doesn't it?

    It is under guard. I don't have a link but I read it somewhere online yesterday.

    PSU still showing its priorities.

    "Contracts are contracts," Board of Trustees Chair Karen Peetz said Friday during a trustee meeting in Scranton, Pennsylvania. "And no there's no plan to (change) that."

    After removing the halo, Pilato painted a blue ribbon over the chest of the late coach’s image.
