Greetings, I know it's been a while, but the march for Paterno Field at Beaver Stadium is growing very close to being put into motion. Please if you know of anyone who was still on the fence about signing, they shouldn't be anymore, please share with them the petition link http://www.change.org/p/make-paterno-field-at-beaver-stadium, or direct them to my website at http://www.paternofield-beaverstadium.com where they can press the flashing button to sign the petition.
If you haven't heard the news by now, here it is loud and clear: The consent decree that Penn State signed to accept the NCAA’s sanctions calls Paterno’s actions “deficient conduct.” And the decree was issued based on the Freeh Report, which said Paterno covered up child abuse doing what the NCAA now says he should do.
Jay Paterno said that this ruling “invalidates” the consent decree:
It invalidates the very foundation of the consent decree and Mark Emmert’s press conference statements that Penn State failed to act appropriately. The course taken by Joe Paterno and the athletic department was exactly what the NCAA recommends.
There is a reason a coach is not to follow up by finding and contacting a potential victim of a sexual assault. Regardless of a coach’s intent, a victim could feel pressured to recant her or his story. They are good guidelines. Because Penn State followed them, the NCAA should remove the sanctions.
In hindsight the NCAA has admitted without admitting they screwed up big time, and the days of Joe Paterno, and his 409 wins, the teams 409 wins will, and must be put back into the History Books.
With that being said, I'm proud to share with you an important message, one that I believe is being presented in a way that shows Honor and Dignity while serving a great purpose. Please read the below message and be Penn State Proud and join myself, and thousands of others as we 'Honor Joe by having a Restore The Wins Rally'... 409-4-EVER.....
THE PORTERFIELD GROUP FILM + VIDEO
We are writing to invite you to become involved in the Honor Joe – Restore The Wins Rally (October 24 – 25, 2014). The event will take place in State College, Pennsylvania and at various satellite locations around the country.
The event will coincide with Penn State/Ohio State football weekend. We are creating a giant “409” and PEOPLE shall come from near and far to demonstrate their support and “SIGN THE 409.” We anticipate more than 10,000 people, including many “special guests,” will attend and participate. The giant “409” will be on display Friday, October 24, 2014 (2:00PM – 7:00PM)
and Saturday, October 25, 2014 (10:00AM – 8:00PM) outside the Student Bookstore. located at 330 E. College Ave. Please come join the celebration.
For the many who want to participate, but will not be in State College, we are actively seeking hosts for Satellite Events. These events are for groups small and large to gather at a Penn State/Ohio State football watching party in a home or restaurant. Satellite groups will be asked to create their own “409.” It can be a poster, or other display, which will be signed by those in attendance and later included with the giant “409” from State College. This is a fantastic
opportunity to watch Penn State defeat Ohio State and participate in the Honor Joe – Restore The Wins Rally.
As an added incentive, all satellite and alumni groups that participate in the Honor Joe – Restore The Wins Rally, will be given an opportunity to host a screening of the critically acclaimed, THE PEOPLE’S JOE – A TRUE STORY, when the film is released nationally, November 9, 2014.
For information on hosting or attending a satellite event, please contact us via email: Info@peoplesjoe.com
