I agree with this.In the context of the league, the optics of those texts alone are bad for the League and the Pats (though I can't translate them good enough to understand what that fool was actually trying to say). No wonder the NFL is considering putting him on the exempt list. That would make the most sense at this point.
As for his guilt or innocence - just because it's a civil case first doesn't preclude her having sufficient evidence to prove he sexually assaulted her in some form. Clearly this is a money grab, but the details of what's she's describing happened, outside of the accused rape incident, are detailed and weird to the point of it hard to imagine them being completely fabricated out right. its not hard to imagine this guy treating a female like that - just observe his daily behavior and read those texts.
I’m taking everything from he past few weeks into consideration. They should put him on the commissioners exempt list (not a suspension) until everything is sorted out.I don't.
Anyone can file a civil suite at any time for any reason without any probable cause or to support an indictment. The only reason to take any action at this point, is for public relations.
I agree. It's the nature of the allegations - not just the fact that AB is being sued for civil damages. If that were the case, he would be on the exempt list for these other lawsuits against him:I’m taking everything from he past few weeks into consideration. They should put him on the commissioners exempt list (not a suspension) until everything is sorted out.
There is such a thing as verbal and emotional abuse too. This is in regards to your comment about Halle Berry.Women are ALWAYS protected in these situations, they are called "his alleged victim" or "the victim" The Athletes name and face is plastered all over the news sites NOT the female who's put these allegations out against the player and they say they do so to protect her, meanwhile the Athlete / Entertainer has to walk around getting looks and being called a rapist or abuser until he pays to make it go away or the accuser gets proven wrong and even then that stigma is already attached to him.
Side Note: It took Halle Berry 20+ years to finally admit David Justice never laid a hand on her, he had to walk around with that on him for decades.
He should, no doubt, unless he’s got something to be worried about, right? I’m thinking he’s got something to be worried about and won’t be asking the cops to investigate.He should.
Not filing criminal charges for crimes that are within the statute of limitations hurts the credibility of her claim IMO.
You're free to think that, but right now there isn't enough evidence to favor one person's claim over the other.He should, no doubt, unless he’s got something to be worried about, right? I’m thinking he’s got something to be worried about and won’t be asking the cops to investigate.
I don't personally know, no. I took the assumption that since there was no mention of any police or DA involvement reported, that proceedings were limited to what the article reported, a civil suite only. You'd think any journalist worth their salt would have immediately searched for any criminal related proceedings to back up the civil case, the implication at this point is none was found. Though i grant you, journalism today is in such a poor state, its very possible no one even bothered to check one way or another.Do you know for certain she never reported it to law enforcement?
