lol. Look again. I credited you with having enough intelligence such that you would know how frivoluous a credibility attack is based on my username. I still believe that you possess enough intelligence to know better. Beyond that, sorry but you didn't get chosen to be a moderator so let someone else worry about such attacks.

If you haven't noted that human beings, even intellentigent and ethical ones, sometimes say stupid things when they get pissed off then you should study human behavior a bit more. They said so and there case was weak. True or false: both of the calls about which Paterno is complaining would not have even mattered had previous calls not gone incorrectly in PSU's favor? You saw the games (presumably). True or False: There is a reasonable basis to suspect and question the official's integrity on the presumption that they make prejudiced calls based on what state they are from?
[quote]You have obviously failed to read any stories about the hanging doll incidents like this one or this one or this one. It just shows your overwhelming bias in claiming that he lost any degree of credibility. The thing is that he hasn't- and so proves my point.<hr></blockquote>
So let's see, they are on his front door but he doesn't know who put them there. Riiiiiiiiiight. Additionally, he thinks the officiating issues are serious enough to warrant a formal investigation. Yet he thinks it is all just a funny joke and that he can a ref doll in effigy. Which is it?
He lost credibility the minute he started suggesting that officials were biased because they were from Michigan. He lost credibility the minute he touched a referee, an obvious no-no, over a missed call even though an even worse call had gone his way in the Iowa game that obviously cost Iowa a TD. His long history in the game is the only thing that saved him because if almost any other coach had done such things they would have been suspended for several games. He should be ecstatic that his unethical behavior has been ignored rather than punished as it should have been.
You whined. Sorry but you did. You mention that bad officiating cost PSU two games when in fact it did not. That is whining.
I don't see what politics has to do with it and in fact you are the one who brought it into the thread. But if it makes you feel any better, I voted for Gore.
