Oh, look at that… of course the homers here will twist it any way they can. Also, she said “where did the bruises come from?” once, then deflected to his response. She didn’t deny him saying he “picked her up and put her out of the door” and never hit her. Since you are hard of hearing, the deflection is clear: “We’re not talking about that, we’re talking about our son.” Also, nothing you quoted about what he said was child abuse, he talked about discipline and respect. You can not conclude child abuse from him saying he wants to teach his son respect (unless you are a “guilty until proven innocent” type, of course). What you can conclude is that he said he never hit her or did anything she said he did. “Where did the bruises come from?” was her only response to him. A question in answer to a question — that is called deflection. He asked her multiple times “did I hit you?” She never said “yes.” She responded with: 1. A question. 2. “We aren’t talking about that right now.” That isn’t deflection? If he was a patriots player, you would be up in arms defending him right now. It’s people like you who make politics what they are: blind support of one side, blind hatred of the other. No logic or reason or objectivity. You can be a fan of the Patriots and also not hate every person who wasn’t drafted by the Patriots. Shocking, I know. Her refusing to answer whether he hit her or not, responding with a question, saying “we aren’t talking about that right now” — that doesn’t scream deflection? If someone claims you raped them, then you ask “did I rape you?” and they answer, “where did the marks on my body come from?” And then, again, you ask, “did I rape you?” And they answer, “we aren’t talking about that right now.” That wouldn’t imply there’s some truth to what you are saying? Or any doubt to whether you actually raped her or not? She couldn’t even say “yes, you did choke me, you did punch me” — that isn’t odd to you? Not at all? Now, if she lied about him hitting her and he pleaded guilty for PR, then why should she be believed for this child abuse case? From the shared article: Rapoport joined Dale & Keefe to explain why he wasn't baffled. “Honestly, I am not [baffled]," he said. "This is something that we have been working on for a long time and I would say over the course of the last 48 hours trying to nail down that he was not going to be suspended or fined was probably what I did the most. I was expecting no suspension. I was expecting no fine. It basically read how I thought, honestly. There’s a couple things that went into it. Obviously, we know the audio that was released around the time of the draft was not good, and nothing good about that at all. "Someone called me two days ago and said make sure you listen to the entire 11-minute audio. I said, ‘OK.’ So, I listened to the entire 11-minute audio that Crystal Espinal secretly recorded her and Tyreek Hill going through an airport and his comments come off very differently in that. She doesn’t deny when Hill said she basically made up the 2014 incident and she also admits that she knows Hill did not break the arm of her son. There’s a lot in there. The NFL talked to Hill, they talked to people on both sides. They did not talk to Crystal Espinal, who did not make herself available for comment. The end result of all this was he wasn’t suspended."
