From the texts and emails shown so far it looks like he's clearly being extorted.
There's not a whole lot of justice for rape victims in criminal cases, so many opt for a civil case.Everything is set up to cater the wealthy
To be fair it’s a civil case. I *think* the person only wants money for AB’s actions.
They will pay and that will be it. Unless the nfl gets involved. But like I said, this isn’t a police arresting brown of rape type of instance. It’s a civil case where the woman is looking to forever tag him as a rapist and get money for her pain and suffering.
Someone correct me if I’m wrong.
I mean rumors of this stuff has been floating around social media for a little while...how did either team not know?
I do think both teams knew.
Different era as things are a bit different now, with more awareness regarding abuse and assault.So let me preface this by saying there is absolutely no rhyme or reason to the NFL's decision making regarding these situations because Goodell can do whatever the fuck he wants.
But there is at least some precedent.
The gist of it is...
1. He was accused of raping a girl in 2008/2009. It was brought as a civil suit against him and the hotel it happened in. The case was finally settled out of court in 2012. The NFL took no action at the time of the accusation or when it was settled.
2. He was accused AGAIN in 2010. The victim told the DA she did not want to prosecute because she did not want the crazy media attention. The DA said even if they wanted to go ahead they did not have enough evidence to prosecute. The NFL suspended Ben for 6, reduced to 4, games. They won the superbowl that year.
If I'm supposed to take posters telling me I voted for Trump at face value, the spectrum of posters in here is rather tight. There are a ton of disingenuous posts. Regardless, I'm following along pretty closely for obvious reasons.
Yes...rapists always pay the price for their actions, especially when they are rich...This is a murky situation all around but I strongly believe that people should wait before saying Antonio Brown is guilty or innocent. Let the courts
handle this and determine if he is guilty or not. It could be that he is guilty and then he will pay the price for his actions, or it could be that he is innocent.
For sure, which is why I think they might put him on an indefinite exempt list (paid, can't play) but because the accusations aren't necessarily "rock solid" I would not be surprised if they let one of their star receivers the benefit of the doubt and let him play as proceedings move forward. I'm a pats fan fyi, and I think he should be put on the exempt list.
No you're posting OJ tweets and radio show trolls as actual information to be a smartass, don't try to deflect, this isn't my first rodeo.
He normally doesn't call into the radio. Despite if you believe him or not, he broke the story three days prior to news of the lawsuit. It's relevant.
That is huge to me. The fact she isn't backing down tells me there is probably something to this.
He didn't break anything, there's been murmurings of this all summer.
A very good summary. Sports reporters, perhaps more than any other hacks, live or die by access and that is completely within the hands of teams to give or withhold. Sir Alex Ferguson, when manager of Manchester United, refused to speak to the BBC for 7 years...
I never said some rapists don't get away with it. What I'm saying is that we should wait until the investigations are complete before saying
I mean, if they filed the other day, I would've been very, very surprised if she backed down already.
I'm not gonna question the way she decides to handle her own assault allegations. If she thinks cooperating with the NFL is the way to do it then I'm going to support her.
Pats presser should be taking place in a few minutes. AB's agent to follow.
