found pic of poster                        

I'm trying hard not to jump to conclusions, but as more comes out, this does feel more and more like a 'hit job'.  Even if Watson did exactly what is claimed, it hardly feels like a civil suit.  The s

This is a blatant hit piece... That Instagram post was a drunk rambling... with a lot of vague statements. Plus the clerk hasn't received an official lawsuit yet... its not even filed...

Interesting post. I can see that.

"Deeply religious owner does not want rapist" is a great angle to get rid of him without looking as incompetent as an organization.

and Tyrod does kind of have a history of being a seat holder for qb's drafted early. They already know he is comfortable in the mentor role and the guys he has mentored have fared pretty well in the league so far.

Sit tight.....

That’s right.  I am offended that I was thrown under the bus right away and for my whole career.

Should have held on to the ball in the championship game. Your narrative would have been much better haha.

New England Patriots statement when Kraft was criminally charged:

“We categorically deny that Mr. Kraft engaged in any illegal activity. Because it is a judicial matter, we will not be commenting further.”

He's innocent until proven guilty. On top of that, the timing and source are beyond suspect.

In the court of Law.

In the court of Public Opinion, not so much.

I deleted the photo. Voting machine jokes are going to end badly.

A note to everyone, the thread last night got political. There is enough to talk about here without bringing up politics. Let's avoid it.

Yessir.

Why would they want to decrease his trade value?

Not sure it would decrease his trade value if they are just allegations. The team can say they don't want the distraction in order to (partially) preserve the reputation of the organization. FQB leaves because the team is run by morons is hard to recover from. I'm just speculating though. For all we know, he could actually be a guilty POS. I'll assume he's innocent for now, as we all should.

Someone is being accused of felony sexual assault. The court of law is all that matters. The court of public opinion needs to mind it's business and wait for the legal system.

Frankly any lawyer who does this should be disbarred.  Nobody has to respond to lawyers trying to extort money.  I'd bet money this is a smear campaign with zero merit. 

Your view presumes the case has no merit.

I don't see why a Lawyer would be disbarred for this if the case has merit.

And there is a legal route available to Watson and the Texans, counter-sue in civil court.

How incredibly naïve on your part.

Public opinion never waits, no matter how much people whine about it.

Hence why every NFL team would make a statement in this situation, even if it's an empty statement (like the Texans was, basically saying nothing).

Where's the criminal complaint?  This isn't a Bob Kraft deal where there was a criminal complaint.  This is a civil action that doesn't require more than an allegation.

lol they have a history of BAD trades.....they are trying to show that they are now a professional outfit. The last thing they need is more drama...Bill O'brien's legacy still remains and I can imagine they are tired of it. So far they are still able to sign free agents but with an unstable QB situation and poor reputation it does kind of torpedo their efforts to right the ship. If they do not get a massive haul they will need an excuse...

This is as goods as any. In fact this might be a life preserver for them

Not the Patriots

They did not say "they take these allegations very seriously"

they basically said judicial matter we are not talking which is what the Texans should have done

I think this type of thinking is the problem and much more naive. Respect for public institutions (like the legal system and due process) is a common good that we should all preserve. We can disagree.

Probably because he has a sterling reputation and the nature of the accusation is sketchy as hell?

Why are people so quick to try to paint Watson, and not the Texans, as the bad guy lately?

Whenever I get a massage there is no whipping...it’s already out (under a towel), but there is no hiding what I got going on down there. 

Some of use full size towels though, while others use hand towels.

I presume if there was a criminal complaint that gets into Court it's worthy of an investigation.   When OJ was charged I thought the DA should have been disbarred for going public on his late wife's calling police about domestic violence.  It was a clear a publicity stunt trying to taint the potential jury pool.  The tweet itself is clearly an attempt to get leverage for a settlement.  I think it's unethical behavior by an office of the Court which Lawyers are.

If he whipped out and exposed his dong to the massage therapist while asking, that could be considered assault in some states. 

 

maybe he was facedown and just had to adjust himself ... and then the side profile of the dong scared her

Your view is idealistic.  Nothing wrong with idealism, but being angry the world doesn't work the way we want it isn't terribly productive.

So you frequent these types of establishments?  Can you go into very minute and exact detail of what transpired?  

Strictly for research purposes, you understand?

In America you are innocent until proven guilty.   Watson has  not been charged with anything and yet folks  are trying to destroy his reputation at a time when he is seeking a new contract /team to play for. This is not Ray Rice where there was a video of an actual brutal assault. If this lawsuit proves to be "nothing" the damage is already done as you can be sure some are having second thoughts

Exactly.  This is another made up accusation against the bad evil inept owners.  Makes no sense.  And the backlash would be ridiculous and irreparable if any link got it.  But I am waiting for the media and others to say it’s fact.

Not sure why you're accusing me of being angry, but OK I guess? Also, this is the real world and most teams haven't made statements.

For example?

What prominent NFL player was accused of sexual misconduct and the team he was under contract for made no public statement?

In recent years, please.

All I’m saying is Watson could have asked her to go easy on his hamstrings, or play soothing slow jams of Kenny G and there wouldn’t be any evidence of it.

Did not see Watson's statement, so:

As a result of a social media post by a publicity-seeking plaintiff's lawyer, I recently became aware of a lawsuit that has apparently been filed against me. I have not yet seen the complaint, but I know this: I have never treated any woman with anything other than the utmost respect. The plaintiff's lawyer claims that this isn't about money, but before filing suit he made a baseless six-figure settlement demand, which I quickly rejected. Unlike him, this isn't about money for me ⁠– it's about clearing my name, and I look forward to doing that."
