"They said don't bother sending it we're not interested in fabrications, stories, any attempts at extortion or blackmail. I mean, they made it seem like I was looking for something for myself," McLaughlin said. "I didn't ask them for money. I didn't ask them for anything other than make sure they look into this. Listen to the tape and get this guy away from children."
McLaughlin later sued the professor, but settled with him out of court for an undisclosed sum in March 2006. Neisworth denied all wrongdoing.

You have no idea what he was told. The grand jury testimony was vague in how the information was passed along through the chain.
I am definitely in the camp that believes he knew enough, but it is based solely on intuition and yes, common sense. I just want to hear his side of the story.He saw a naked boy, Victim 2, whose age he estimated to be ten years old, with his hands up against the wall, being subjected to anal intercourse by a naked Sandusky ... the graduate assistant telephoned Paterno and went to Paterno’s home, where he reported what he had seen. Joseph V. Paterno testified to receiving the graduate assistant’s report at his home on a Saturday morning. Paterno testified that the graduate assistant was very upset.
Do you need to see a video of the conversations between McQueary and Paterno to actually know what happened? It isn't solely common sense and intuition, it's grand jury testimony from both an eyewitness with everything to lose and nothign to gain, and Paterno himself confirming the conversation.

If taking a step back and waiting for ACTUAL FACTS* to surface instead of absolute hearsay, then sure I've lost my mind. Lol, I can't believe anyone would criticize me for trying to not make assumptions like the rest of America has. It's funny because this case is textbook as to how the MSM affects the mind of the average American/person through total sensationalism without ANY FACTUAL BASIS. I think it's fair to guess that the FACTS that haven't come out yet may bear out what many are assuming, but since there are zero non-Sandusky facts, there needs to be more investigation to sift through this complete mess, which has turned into a daily circus on most media outlets.
I understand why people want to put their blinders up and automatically assume the worst when it comes to a crime as serious as sexual abuse, but it's still America. Let the facts decide everyone's fate. My only hope is that the real story is eventually discovered and the proper actions taken.
*- The facts I refer to, and have continually referred to are in reference to everybody not named Sandusky. He is guilty and will die in jail (if he makes it that far), as he should.

My F'ing work has the Baseball Cafe blocked, and my girl is old enough to require a lot of my time, so I don't get on here much anymore. I can get to the Football Cafe at work, but it's a ghost town these days. Plus I don't play much fantasy football anymore - strictly baseball these days.
