It's not like the old USSR, everyone knows Paterno won more games. You can't actually change history, and Paterno has not been accused of cheating in those games. That's why I use the term Orwellian.
I struggle to follow your reasoning here. According to you if Paterno had used his power to cheat to win games, then it would have been justified to change his wins to losses. Paterno did abuse his powers putting his football program and winning football games above those victims. If Paterno and his cronies have their way, Sandusky is still molesting children up to this day.
Considering the magnitude of the offense, it makes sense to me to wipe out Paterno’s legacy.
It seems odd to me that people is saying how PS’s punishments are unfair to those not involved, but if the offense is cheating instead, would people still be complaining ?
