I’m no fan of Brown but there really does seem to be a lot more going on here than we can sort out.
It's also hearsay.
She has her testimony and then it depends on whether the jury believes her. It's way too early to tell.
Not sure where there are many cases of the league suspending players for civil lawsuits. I would think that would be an awfully slippery slope to go down. With Big Ben, he was accused twice. The first was civil. The second time there was a police report filed and in the end the woman said she would not pursue charges because she didn't want to go through the media circus it would involve.
In a letter asking the district attorney not to prosecute, the alleged victim's lawyer emphasized that the she was not recanting her accusation but rather was afraid that the trial would be "a very intrusive personal experience" due to the "extraordinary media attention" it would receive.The DA said he would have charged him if she hadn't refused to prosecute.
He was suspended for that one.
Why is there not a criminal investigation?
I read some of these pages and all I can say is give the guy due process.
Today will be interesting.
So much for getting work done...
Of course it's one of the leading stories on the TODAY Show. I've already heard from people who believe he did something just by reading the headlines, didn't even read the article! Sadly that is seriously how alot of people will judge this, headline alone, and decide that the nfl and patriots have to take action.
In the past, the NFL has been criticized for going easy on players accused of sexual misconduct. With that in mind, several sources have suggested AB be placed on the exempt list right now until this whole mess gets sorted out. As much as I would like to see him in a Pats uni, I think that is probably what happens.
My non lawyer brain thinks a crucial part of the story is did she go to the state to attempt charges being placed. If she did and there was not enough legal evidence I think that takes away the just a money grab angle. Just a few thoughts ...
Because it’s not about justice for them, it’s about exploiting someone for money
Haven't read all 53 pages, but I don't see how the NFL can take action solely based on a civil lawsuit with no criminal charges, unless there is evidence like a video or something stronger than what has already been presented.
He was inactive on Sunday. Coach's decision.
Better dunk your head in some water. Your hair is still on fire.
Why did she go straight to civil court? Why not criminal of he did the things he is accused of?
Not enough evidence for a criminal trial so let’s just kill the person’s character? Problem is AB doesn’t have character to kill. Civil cases are about $$$ this is highly suspect.
The depth chart without Brown is
Edelman, Gordon, Dorsett, Meyers and Gunner. DT would not get the PT.
I always adopt the wait and see with these types of things, but this one has a potent stench to it given the timing.... and I’m not a fan of AB, so it churns my stomach a bit defending him
He’s a weird dude, that much we know.
That’s not true at all. Each of those people could be called as witnesses, put under oath, put on the stand, and asked “Did PatriotsReign talk to you about X?” And if they answered yes, they then could be asked “What did he tell you?”
Maybe you’re thinking of hearsay, a classic case of which is Bob says that John’s friend says John was the murderer.
But even there, while Bob’s statement may be inadmissible for proving that John was the murderer, it can still be admissible for establishing that John’s friend is really John’s friend, or that John’s friend was freaking out when he talked to Bob, etc.
