the guy wasn't even a Houston fan.

it was a Longhorn fan from a message board called Shaggy Bevo. They are known to be pretty damn insensitive (though sometimes pretty funny) over there.

Here is his reasoning
Quote:
I have squirreled away this idea for the time being, because it's no secret that the trolls from Penn State are too upset about this to think with an unclouded mind.

They think this is a shameful idea. I'll tell you what is shameful. The conspiracy undertaken by the staff and administrators of The Pennsylvania State University to cover up the rape of children so as not to damage its precious football program is shameful. The record is clear on this count. For a decade, Penn State employees, agents, trustees, and officers--from the janitor to the president of the university all the way up to the Lord High Football Coach--knew that Jerry Sandusky was raping children, and doing so on Penn State property. And the only remedial action they took is to ask him nicely to do it elsewhere.

Do you know what else is shameful? A mass protest in defense of one of the primary conspirators, the Lord High Football Coach himself, when the scope of the cover-up began to be revealed. Joe Paterno not only knew of the rapes and did nothing to prevent further molestation, the evidence indicates that he actively minimized and downplayed the seriousness of the situation. Paterno's action and inaction facilitated the rape of countless additional victims over the subsequent decade (though through litigation I suspect we'll begin to get a count). And yet Penn State's students and fans rallied in support of his continuing to coach the football team.

But that's not really all Joe Paterno did, is it? And that brings me perhaps to the most shameful aspect of this entire imbroglio. Joe Paterno wasn't just the football coach. He wasn't just the highest authority at the school, though he definitely was that as evidenced by the trustees' inability to fire him in 2004. He was apparently the highest moral authority in Central Pennsylvania. You want to know shameful? Calibrating your moral compass to the actions of a football coach is shameful. And yet that's what happened at The Pennsylvania State University--the near deification of a lousy football coach.

Yes, let's all reflect on shame, shall we. Let's let Pedobear provoke people into considering that for which we should be ashamed.

I submit that if you continue to be a supporter of the football program of The Pennsylvania State University, that list is very long.

Exactly. He's trying to call attention to nothing other than himself and his website.

Going about what? His diatribe about Penn State on his blog/site is all well and good, though nothing that hasn't been said before or better. Just explain to me how the costume at a game has anything to do with anything he says, or how it advances his stance on the issue.

Well if you dont get it, you dont get it, but for what its worth, he is making a statement. Dont be shallow like everyone else and get mad just because the guy is in a Pedobear costume, dude is making the issue public as a protest against the cover up of Penn State child molesting incidents. Did you read the sign he had put up?

You mean the "Keep Quiet and don't tell anyone" sign he wore in the 1000th row of the stands? That certainly is a hard hitting commentary.

But you're right, SOMEONE had to make this issue public! You haven't been able to find any information about it on the news anywhere. And there have been so many people speaking out in favor of both Penn State and child abuse, it's about time somebody took the opposite stance!

What's "shallow" is attempting to justify a stupid publicity stunt that, in actuality, is nothing but an impotent, nonsensical "protest" against something nobody is supporting.

So you need to quote somebody else to make a point? a weak one at that too. If you dont do anything you dont achieve anything. Additionally the guy HAS achieved something since you and I are and a bunch of others are talking about his stunt and how influential it is.
