    I read an article that says the actual % is a range from between 2 and 10. The FBI has it at 8% of accusations being unfounded.

    The article also said “that figure does not include any unsubstantiated accusations where an investigation was unable to prove a sexual assault occurred, so an accurate figure for the total remains unknown”.

    So...I guess that means there’s a ton of variability in the false allegation percent discussion.

    Right....she was unaware he was jacking off, but close enough to him to have it sprayed on her.

    If someone was that close to me I would certainly know what was happening.

    And she may have a complaint, but not a legal one. If you are in a consentual sexual relationship with someone and they perform a sex act you are not comfortable with, you tell them no or to stop or dump their ass...you don't sue them.

    Also, I wasn't suggesting that is an appropriate way to treat a woman, but I also have no comment or any say on what gets people off.

    I’m sure Goddell is hoping something happens soon and everyone turns the page.

    No offense to you, as I'm with you in principle. BUT

    Let's be honest, here. This particular week, with this particular team (2019 LOLphins) would be really lame discussion. We could get into it, but it'll be about 10 minutes worth of legit posting followed by days of absolute nothingness.

    1. LOLphins suck
    2. LOLphins have a good CB, but he can't cover every Patriots WR at the same time
    3. LOLphins have traded away talent for draft picks, effectively taking the season
    4. LOLphins have Ryan FitzPickSix as their starting QB
    5. Patriots only excuse for losing is that they do it so often in Miami

    I may have missed something, but it's not likely to be something of import.

    I think what's being asserted is that morality in and of itself is largely relative and thus arbitrary, at least across human made belief systems.

    Yeah, it's an elected position and he just fended off his first primary challenge in 20 years. It's pretty likely that he just wants some positive headlines and sees attaching his name to this case as an easy way to do it. I don't expect this to go anywhere because everything being alleged happened outside his jurisdiction anyway. And that's saying nothing of the credibility of the case itself,I just generally take a very dim view of prosecutors in election season. If a criminal investigation has any legs we'll probably see it start where these alleged incidents happened.

    Studies vary, and they give a range of false accusations of about 2% to about 40%.

    I don't think this is really the place for a conversation about absolute/relative (or subjective/objective) morality. Neither I, nor the poster I was supporting, were talking about morality really. Just that certain actions come with increased possibility of bad things happening. Having many sexual partners is one of those things.

    This is a serious allegation, but I am numbed to negative media attention to my team thanks to the various gates. I actually find it funny. I just don't want us to do something as stupid and rash as the Chiefs did with Hunt.
    Cut him or suspend him by yourself and it only hurts you. We will not get any points from those who are not with us already. When the dust settles and he can still play football, someone out there will come on TV and says they are giving him a second chance BS.

    I inferred nothing about my perspective other than what I stated, that yours in referring to marriage as 'just a label' was very poorly thought out. So I guess you could say my 'perspective' is that yours could use some work. You compounded the error by reading between lines that were single spaced in terms of what someone else might 'seem to be referring to.'

    The original post that started this entire discussion specifically mentioned morality, which is why the discussion has occurred within that context.

    Before we get the pitchforks out, let's treat Brown as I would if he played for the Pats or Steelers or anyone. There is a presumption of innocence until facts prove otherwise. If Tawana Brawley, Duke Lacrosse or Covington Catholic ( and Kavanaugh )proved anything, it is that mob rule before the facts can railroad innocent people and ruin their lives....
    Certain things are troublesome, such as going back for the third time after he gratified himself on her back. Why would she do that? who knows but people often do things that defy logic. My wife is an attorney representing victims of domestic violence and often the victim will go back to their abuser or refuse to testify despite horrific injuries...
    I'd like to know if she pursued a criminal charge and did prosecutors decline or did alleged victim go straight to lawsuit. If they were in a consensual relationship, that certainly complicates it. Was there anyone told about these actions contemporaneously by either Brown or the woman??? The fact that Brown backed out of a $1.6 million deal complicates things. I'm reserving judgment until more facts are known. If it turns out that he is innocent, suspending him causes irreparable damage as he cant get those games back. If he is guilty and it can be proven, missing games will be the least of his worries...

    How can the DA look into the case without there being a police report? I'm sure the statute of limitations has run already and she can't file a police report now...
