    She’s an accuser who may in fact be a victim. An important detail.

    Us not knowing if she’s a victim does not mean that she isn’t.

    But in terms of what we do know with certainty, no we don’t know that she is a victim, and yes, we do know she’s an making an accusation.

    I didn’t claim they were a similar lawsuit, I just said what schefter said - that brown could be put on the commissioners exempt list while the investigation takes place.

    Similar situation in regards to being put on the exempt list while being investigated even though the type of lawsuit is different.

    yes it does. The league looked like a fool during this whole AB saga. Now it must act. What action? does not matter. but it must do something or other 31 teams will cry. Just like the whole Deflategate saga.

    This is dumb. My post was in reference to possibly getting something in a trade for him. For that to happen he would have had to burn his bridges with 3 teams in the span of a few months and he has uncertainty. He's not yielding much trade value

    With today’s zeitgeist the NFL had to announce they are “investigating” this or they’d be crucified in the media (especially after how badly they botched the Rice case, the NYG punter case, etc.)

    Now what that investigation actually is is a whole ‘nother story. It could be Goodell looking to screw NE again or it could be basically doing nothing until the court case actually gets rolling and people get to see what the evidence on both sides is.

    Finally, if AB/Rosenhaus really didn’t give NE any heads-up at all that AB was having problems with this woman, that’s not good and I can’t imagine BB will be pleased with not being told. Sure, AB may well have had no idea a lawsuit was coming, but he damned well should have told the team someone was trying to extort him and there was probably trouble brewing on that front.

    What state did this supposedly occur in? Why is it a “federally filed” lawsuit?

    If he does not practices tomorrow, I don't know how this will pan out in the long season here. It may be over before it started. It will be a shame if he is innocent.

    Which means you should refer to her as an accuser...

    I don't know why you think you have proven otherwise, but I can assure you that you have not.

    I may be a victim. You don't call me one until you know for sure what I am a victim of. You refer to them as an accuser. It's real easy.

    If his lawyer lets him do that his lawyer should be fed to a woodchipper for incompetence in the first degree.

    Dude AB is one of my favorite players legit. I just care about this team more. We quite frankly don't need him and this has the potential to be a mess that hovers over this team.

    The requirments for the exemption list are legit "unusual circumstances". That's the threshold. People saying "well so and so got on it for a criminal case and this is civil" are trying to find an out that does not exist with in the framework of the clause.

    Rumor has it that the team was not made aware. Whether they are just saying that...who knows. I doubt they’d acknowledge “oh yeah we knew we were signing a guy who might have committed sexual assault”.

    Maybe I'm just tired at the moment, but I can't recall anything like this entering the league's investigatory purview independent of law enforcement involvement with the player.

    Yep, difficult to derail this train, much like 2016 and the bogus TFB suspension. That team would have been 15-1 and a goal line play away from 16-0.

    You have already disliked all my opinions anyway, so my probably failed attempt at a context argument...

    Is there anything to the Pats in 2011 already knowing Julian as a person for 2+ years and standing by him through an allegation vs knowing Antonio Brown for ~2 days?

    For the record I don’t think any team or league disciplinary action is even anywhere close to warranted at this point with AB, just that it is worth evaluating the signing with regard to the amount of drama inherited and/or locker room stigma with the existing players.

    He will practice tomorrow and play Sunday.

    If he doesn't show up for practice, he will be released.

    But he will show up to practice.

    Relax, guys. You’re both right that I should’ve referred to her as the accuser and not a victim, but that shouldn’t take away from the main point, either.
