Your thoughts?

Mine: This is completely ridiculous. He's an activist against all of this and they're trying to get him banned? He was cleared of the charge. You can show the majority of the country and world Janet Jackson's breast, but God forbid showing them a man who's spent countless hours and moneys fighting the very thing he was accused of.

To be honest it always seems like he got away with little damage to his reputation... guess not

But they let Michael Jackson? Oh come on.

I thought Pete informed the police of that pedophile ring...was I mistaken??
The content of this signature is pretty much irrelevant

Come on people, he was cleared of all of the charges, and he's not even on the registry for sex offenders, there's absolutely nothing they can do about it.

Besides, Townshend is the man, you cannot stop him from bringing the RAWK!

I thought he was just falsely accused of entering a child-porn website?

What's worse than having a registered sex offeneder living next door?

An unregistered sex offender?

They let Keith Richards and Steven Tyler in. Why not Townshend?

People should really read the article.

It is explaining WHY these stupid advocacy groups are wrong and ridiculous.

I thought it was something like that as well. I remember reading that he was part of an organization to help out kids and bring pedophiles to justice or something like that.
I can honestly say I have really been far even as decided to use even go want to do look more like.

Or you could just read the article which explains everything very well.

No you're not. He's reported to have flagged the site in question.
If he is a paedophile, he's really bad at it.

So it turns out he was actually looking at the sites for genuine research and yet all this is ignored by some morons in a group who are supposed to be interested in the truth.. ¬_¬ This is pathetic , its like a witchhunt and imagine how he feels considering he was abused himself and now he's getting labelled like this
#25
and they blast rock and roll part 2 at every sporting event? Gary Glitter was the biggest pedophile in rock music. The NFL is a bunch of hypocrites and thugs.

"They didn't write the song for Pete's sake, but it certainly applies."

not that this has anything to do with the article, but cmon asshat, pete wrote the songs
#28
The odds of him actually being banned at this point are pretty slim considering all the money the NFL has invested in promo and they'd have to find another huge act to replace The Who with.

edit: I just think its absurd this is even an issue

That's Ridiculous, some of these Child "Protecters" need to be locked up. Some of them are obviously not well. What bothers me is that these people will refuse to acknowledge everything else Townshend has done for children.

They actually don't play Rock And Roll Part 2any more for that reason. But yeah nevertheless Its bogus. I love the who and Im excited. Anyway, the NFL has already showcased Janet Jackson's boob and Mick Jagger's neck (which looks a little like a vagina at this point) so it would indeed be complete hypocrisy.
#31
Its just people trying to make themselves feel important. Thats really what these groups are. Creating issues where there are none to gratify themselves.

If women can be annoyed there arent any women incongress I should be allowed to be pissed off there are no members of pink floyd or the beatles in congress.

Those "Child-Advocacy" groups are f***king stupid, they really need to look at all the things he's done for their causes.

The NFL won't ban The Who?

They'd be stupid to do so, and I'm sure that they will respond to all of this with the same information in the article. No worries folks.

Yeah, it's bullsh*t.

Before I say this next part, I just want to say I'm not a pedophile, I don't have any interest in child porn, and I've never gone in the internet with the intent of looking at it.

As someone who uses the internet frequently, and I've been to porn sites (Why? Figure it out), and I can say that it is very easy to accidently stumble upon a website with at the very least a child porn link or image. Every now and then I lurk 4chan and I wouldn't be surprised if on /b/ there was a child porn image posted.

It's very easy to accidently click a page that has an image or web link. Downloading it is different, but I find it pretty easy to believe someone could see child porn without looking for it or downloading it. I don't believe going to 4cha-
