The Paterno family will present the 180 page counter report to the Freeh report. The counter report will be discussed on ESPN’s Outside The Lines this Sunday morning.
The family attorney, Wick Sollers, began assembling a team of experts specifically to counter the various points raised in the report last August, so you know that they were operating objectively and viewing the information with an open mind. From Sue Paterno:
“When the Freeh report was released last July, I was as shocked as anyone by the findings and by Mr. Freeh’s extraordinary attack on Joe’s character and integrity. I did not recognize the man Mr. Freeh described. I am here to tell you as definitively and forcefully as I know how that Mr. Freeh could not have been more wrong in his assessment of Joe.”
. . . This cannot happen. The Freeh report failed and if it is not challenged and corrected, nothing worthwhile will have come from these tragic events.”
It sounds like the motives are pure here, and this counter-report is only worried about making something worthwhile out of tragedy.
