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.

With Thomas drawing attention, Stevens turns to Rozier in big moment

With Thomas drawing attention, Stevens turns to Rozier in big moment

BOSTON – Prior to Saturday’s game, Terry Rozier talked to CSNNE.com about the importance of staying ready always, because “you never know when your name or number is going to be called.”

Like when trailing by three points in the fourth quarter with less than 10 seconds to play?

Yes, Rozier was on the floor in that scenario and the second-year guard delivered when his team needed it.

But Rozier’s fourth quarter heroics which forced overtime against Portland, did not provide that much-needed jolt that Boston needed as the Blazers managed to fend off the Celtics in overtime, 127-123.

For Rozier’s part, he had 15 points on 6-for-13 shooting.

The 15 points scored for Rozier was the most for him since he tallied 16 in a 30-point Celtics win at Orlando on Dec. 7.

But more than the points, the decision by head coach Brad Stevens to draw up a play for him in that moment, a time when most of what Boston does revolves around the shooting of Isaiah Thomas who has been among the top-3 scorers in the fourth quarter most of this season, was surprising to many.

And at that point in the game, Thomas already had 13 fourth-quarter points.

Stevens confirmed after the game that the last shot in the fourth was indeed for Rozier, but Thomas’ presence on the floor was important to its execution.

“He (Thomas) also draws a lot of attention,” Stevens said. “So I think you just weigh kind of … what kind of shot you’re going to get, depending on who it is.”

Rozier had initially screened for Thomas, and Thomas came back and screened for him.

“I was open as soon as I caught … and I let it fly,” Rozier said. “Coach drew up a play for me and it felt good to see the ball go in.”

Being on the floor at that time, win or lose, was a victory of sorts for Rozier.

He has seen first-hand how quickly the tide can change in the NBA for a young player.

After a strong summer league showing and a solid training camp, Rozier had earned himself a firm spot in the team’s regular rotation.

But a series of not-so-great games coupled with Gerald Green’s breakout night on Christmas Day, led to his playing time since then becoming more sporadic.

Rozier, in an interview with CSNNE.com, acknowledged it hasn’t been easy going from playing regular minutes to not being sure how much court time, if any, he would receive.

But he says the veterans on the team have been good about keeping his spirits up, and one in particular – Avery Bradley – has been especially helpful.

Like Rozier, Bradley’s first couple of years saw his playing time go from non-existent to inconsistent. But Bradley stayed the course and listened to the team’s veterans who continued to tell him that his hard work would pay off sooner or later.

Those same words of wisdom Bradley received in his early days, he passes on to Rozier.

“It’s big,” Rozier told CSNNE.com. “He (Bradley) tells me things like that. I felt I was ready for this (inconsistent minutes) after all that he told me. It’s big to have a guy like him that has been through it all with a championship team, been around this organization for a while; have him talk to you is big. It’s always good. That’s why I stay positive, and be ready.”

Which is part of the reason why Stevens didn’t hesitate to call up a play for the second-year guard despite him being a 33.3 percent shooter from 3-point range this season – that ranks eighth on this team, mind you.

“He’s a really good shooter,” Stevens said of Rozier. “I think with more opportunity that will show itself true, but he made some big ones in the fourth quarter. We went to him a few different times out of time-outs, and felt good about him making that one.”

And to know that Stevens will turn to him not just to spell Thomas or one of the team’s other guards, but to actually make a game-altering play in the final seconds … that’s major.

“It helps tremendously,” said Rozier who added that his confidence is through “the roof. It makes me want to do everything. You know defense, all of that. It’s great, especially to have a guy like Brad trust you."
