Penn State protester wearied of lonely fight in battle of ideology

He felt the wrath of fervent football fans

But Matko’s brother, Robert, was displeased with the signs’ demand to cancel the remainder of the season.

“I couldn’t disagree more,” Robert Matko wrote in a tweet the day after the game. “Not fare (sic) to punish team, fans, alumni.”

Robert Matko didn’t return a message.

“He’s willing to almost sever, or be so against, his own brother and he’d rather support a stranger he’s never met,” John Matko said.

“It’s really a cultural thing that’s going to take some time for them to really redefine themselves from just being a football school. They’re so much more than a football school. This football program just got out of control. They’re not handling it very well. I’m seeing that. You ask anybody who is outside the Penn State blue-and-white cult and they understand that.

“It just gets weirder and weirder.”
