Tone can make a big difference with lines like that, so I won't go overboard here, but Nick needs to be careful. Belichick only really has the leeway to be snarky with the media because he has success. Caserio has not earned that yet, and if things go too south, too quickly (and if Watson isn't playing the whole season, that's almost a certainty), he'll need some allies in the media to keep the pressure low while he rebuilds.

So did he get all these massages during this extinction event know as the Pandemic? How the F was he able to fly people around the country when we were supposed to be in our basements praying for forgiveness? I am still at a loss to explain 2020-21...

PFT has a more fleshed out piece that I didn't see until after the tweet. You might find Caserio's comments less problematic to you, in that context.

Caserio had a huge issue dumped in his lap after taking this job and seems to have handled it very well.
What will be really interesting to watch is how the team performs this year. He took a bad team without cap room or draft picks and made a ton of transactions to upgrade depth abs a change the culture, which really seems to be what they needed. If he can get a .500 season out of that, esp considering he won’t have Watson for much if not all of it, that’s pretty impressive.

The battle has been joined.


After weeks of press conferences and lawyer statements and a skirmish over whether the plaintiffs would proceed in their own names (they now are) in cases alleging misconduct during massage sessions, Texans quarterback Deshaun Watson has filed a formal answer to the first lawsuit that was filed against him last month. The document filed by Watson’s lawyer in the case filed by Ashley Solis calls the entire effort a “money grab.”

Looks like he’s gonna fight it. No settlement.
I wouldn't paint it with such a broad brush. If he gets a settlement offer he can't refuse, he will likely take it. It is just a matter of how low the plaintiffs are willing to go.

It seems to me a couple of the cases against Watson are pretty strong, but several of them are incredibly weak.

Money grabs are also known as the only available resource for women whose professional lives/reputations were damaged by a sexual predator. He may or may not have broken any actual laws yet that's irrelevant to a civil suit.

It makes my stomach turn that this scumbag tries to paint them as money hungry after using his money and fame to prey on them.

In the end, though, this is just another leverage play. A settlement will come.

Idk about that. His lawyer will have
witnesses against some of these women. I really don’t think he will settle.

So you’re declaring him guilty?
