after all she has done, not her husband but her for the city, school. She has donated money and done so many fundraisers for the school and needy that we could not even count. I am kinda pissed that they would treat an older woman who is a saint almost like that.  Guess the millions and millions of donated money the family had given doesnt get you a pool pass.

Still, did she have a pass on her own? If hers was tied to her husbands employment status, then good for PSU.

I'm sure RR's and Tressel's wives did a lot for M and OSU, but it's not like they would be allowed in school facilities now, what makes Sue Paterno so special?

Does her access to the athletic facilities end after Joe was terminated, absolutely. However, I still believe he holds tenure at Penn State ... that might be separate from his coaching responsibilities. So she might have thought she had access.

It's also possible that she's an older lady who is used to a routine, and in a tough situation in which she probably had little to no knowledge of, she went and did what she always did.

While Penn State has the right to revoke her privileges, I think the appropriate action might have been, Ms. paterno, since your husband is no longer an employee you don't have access to these facilities. We'll let you here today, but in the future, you will not have access. 

I think we forget that family members involved in this probably knew little to anything about what was going on and it's hard to understand the consequences. So lighten up a little.

I don't see the big deal with letting her use the pool.  Seriously, wtf?  

They have a lot of community activities out there and as far as I know, she's only guilty of being married to a guy who may or may not have known kids were being molested, but he allowed it to go on so that he could be in the record book.  (I think he knew)

I met Mrs Paterno a few times.  She's a very oldschool lady, but nice.

I don't care and neither should anyone else.

That place is F-U-C-K-E-D up!!!!

Why Zettell went there is beyond me.

I hate that place and they will deserve it when they get the Death Penalty.

So let's once again accept half truths without looking for facts. She was asked to leave along with everyone else because the pool was closed. But lets not let the truth stand in the way of damning the Paternos to hell.
