Penn State students latest rioting idiots

Fans in Montreal and Vancouver are rioting today. No, not because of a first round series win or because of their overrated, mediocre goalie buckled under the pressure again.

Fans in both cities are rejoicing because despite the fact theyve both been involved in some of the stupidest riots in history, there is a new undisputed champion in town.

The Guinness Book of World Records announced today that the Penn State fans and rioters have officially set the record for dumbest riot of all time.

Why did Penn State fans riot? Were they protesting an unjust ruling or the unfair treatment of a popular figure? No, they were protesting the firing of a man who attempted to cover up the horrible sexual abuse of children.

As were sure youre all aware by now, former Penn State head coach Joe Paterno was fired after it was revealed that Paterno was aware of some horrible, awful abuse against children taking place at Penn State. Rather than going to authorities, he basically ignored the issue and downplayed it to Penn State management.

When Penn State fans found out Paterno was fired, they decided football was way more important than all the ruined lives caused by administration's ignorance and started a riot.

I hate to say Im excited in a situation like this but now Montreal looks so much less stupid, said Canadiens mascot Youppi. Sure, our fans are dumb enough to burn cop cars after a first round win but at least were not celebrating atrocities against children!

Vancouver Canucks mascot, Fin, shared similar sentiments.

Weve been taking crap since June for our riots. Our fans smashed cop cars, ruined stores and threw things at Milan Lucics elderly grandparents. Those jerks at Days of YOrr wont shut up about it, though they are hilarious and hurtful at the same time, Fin said. But now...no one is even going to mention us ever again when the subject of riots come up. We rioted after a Game 7 Stanley Cup loss. Those expletive deleted morons at Penn State should all be pummeled by Shawn Thornton."

There are scum bags and then there's you, Penn State rioters. Football isnt even close to important in this situation. You started a riot to protest the firing of a man who allowed atrocities against children to continue because he couldnt be bothered to go to the police.

Because of him and others at the university, a countless number of children will be forever damaged. And you respond by rioting? You are the absolute dumbest group of people. You have to go to bed at night knowing that you rioted to support the abuse of children, because that is basically what it comes down to.

You can rationalize it anyway you want, but if you participated in or celebrated this riot even for a second you were basically raising your hand and saying that sexual abuse against children is okay as long as you run a semi-successful football organization.

There is absolutely no excuse at all for what happened at Penn State. If you participated in, approved of, or cheered the riot you deserve to get punched in whatever set of genitals you have. Repeatedly. If you have a daughter or son or nephew or niece or grandchild or any small child you are close with and they are unlucky enough to get abused, know that you cant really be mad because you CELEBRATED this by participating in this riot. You are giant pieces of crap and you deserve all the worst things in life to happen you. Go rot in a hole somewhere you morons.

MONDAY NIGHT FOOTBALL: Wentz tosses 4 TDs, Eagles beat Redskins, 34-24

PHILADELPHIA - Carson Wentz tossed four touchdown passes, and the Philadelphia Eagles overcame losing nine-time Pro Bowl left tackle Jason Peters in a 34-24 win over the Washington Redskins on Monday night.

Wentz threw for 268 yards and ran for a career-best 63 after a shaky start to lead the NFL-best Eagles (6-1) to their fifth straight win. But the victory was costly because Peters was carted off the field with a knee injury in the third quarter.

Kirk Cousins had 303 yards passing and three TDs for the Redskins (3-3).

The Eagles went three-and-out three times in their first four drives and had only 57 total yards before Wentz hit Mack Hollins in stride with a perfect 64-yard TD pass to tie it at 10.

That got the offense rolling.

Wentz connected with Zach Ertz for 46 yards on the next series and found him again for a 4-yard TD pass to make it 17-10.

After getting the second-half kickoff, the Eagles drove 86 yards for another touchdown. Peters was injured during the series, and fans chanted his name while teammates surrounded the cart.

Wentz finished the drive off with a play that Peters would appreciate.

While being hit by two defenders and falling forward, Wentz lofted a 9-yard TD pass to Corey Clement.

Wentz fired a 10-yard TD pass to Nelson Agholor to expand the lead to 31-17. Wentz kept that drive alive by escaping a sack and running 17 yards on third-and-8.

Cousins tossed a 7-yard touchdown pass to Chris Thompson to give the Redskins a 10-3 lead. He connected with Jordan Reed on a 5-yard TD to cut the deficit to 24-17 and threw a 12-yard pass to Reed to cap the scoring.

The Eagles were penalized on four straight plays to start their first possession before Wentz was intercepted by Quinton Dunbar on a deep pass to Torrey Smith on second-and-31.

Philadelphia swept Washington for the first time since 2013 and has a commanding lead in the NFC East. The Cowboys and Redskins are tied for second place.
