Initial claim from women in Underwood case was a shocker

In the end, Packers cornerback Brandon Underwood likely will avoid charges for sexual assault because of the strong allegations that the two alleged victims initially made — and then changed.

According to the Associated Press, the women claimed that more than one Packers player assaulted them — while other players held them down.

Then, somehow, the claims morphed into an allegation that one player, Underwood, assaulted both of them.

Under those circumstances, it would be virtually impossible for any jury to find proof of guilt beyond a reasonable doubt.

Still, the fact that the allegations were even made raise questions as to whether Underwood, who admits to consensual sexual contact with the women, will draw scrutiny from the league.  Though it’s unlikely that he’d be disciplined under the Personal Conduct Policy for one incident that didn’t result in the filing of charges, Underwood will likely be on deck for a preemptive suspension if he puts himself in position to face similar allegations in the future.

    You can’t use “shocker” in a headline about sexual assault!

    Inmnocent until proven guilty.

  3. fellasheowed says: Jun 8, 2010 7:32 AM

    so couldn’t he still as guilty as roethlisberger?
    i mean the whole world was running off at the blog despite the whole story changing, and no charges being filed?
    is it because we assume that the accuser in georgia is younger and cuter that we have to take her various claims, and the various claims of her presumed to be cute sorority sisters more seriously?
    would the world care about joran van der sloot killing a chick in brazil, if the chick he may have killed in aruba didn’t have a cheerleader picture that could be flashed on tv every 20 minutes?
    why let brandon rapedemgood off so easy?

    The women were 31 and 33 year old ‘patrons’ (not employees) of a strip club? What part of red-flag to these dumbass players not understand – in terms of why those women were in the condo in the first place…..

  5. PULL&SEAL says: Jun 8, 2010 7:40 AM

    This isn’t going to please all the Viking rubes out there hoping something would come of this. Too bad fellas, move along, go back to wishing your franchise was as great as the mighty Packers.

    what? no suspension. the nfl is racist against white dudes.

  7. JimmySmith says: Jun 8, 2010 7:48 AM

    The Viking fans will hate to hear this, it destroys their whole story that the Viking criminals are somehow better than a rapist who doesn’t rape.

  8. Duck Fallas says: Jun 8, 2010 7:49 AM

    Those are pretty important allegations that they probably should have gotten right the first time.

  9. DonTerrelli says: Jun 8, 2010 7:51 AM

    Why not? Big Ben admitted to sexual contact and no charges were files against him, but now he’s been suspended for up to 6 games.

    He shouldn’t be. An allegation shouldn’t harm a player. Imaging the blackmail!
    “If you don’t pay me $1000, I will say that you did something, and since you are standing next me, you have to admit that you were with me. Now pay me.”
    If he had sex with both women, it is within his right to do so. If they were forced, then that it is different, but since these allegations seem to be without substance, then he shouldn’t even have a meeting with the commish.

  12. shadowman1433 says: Jun 8, 2010 7:56 AM

    Gee, a woman making up a story about being assaulted by a pro athlete, that’s something new. Next she will sue him to try to get some money.

  13. briman141 says: Jun 8, 2010 7:56 AM

    This is a sad case of women trying to gold dig. Thats just the easiest way to put it. And Underwood completely cooperated, completely admitted to contact with these “women”, didnt try to hide, deceive or half truth his way out of anything. He had sex with a couple of hussies. Last I heard, that wasnt a crime. So then those same hussies try to make bank off the kid by making false accusations, and HE should be on the lookout for a suspension from the league??? Thats fricking ridiculous. This case isnt even close to Ben the rapist with his disappearing security tapes, officers stonewalling and personal security enabling the rapist. Personal conduct is one thing, but getting a piece of booty or two shouldnt put him on the hot seat for a suspension. Thats just crazy.

  14. TMC says: Jun 8, 2010 7:59 AM

    Wait a minute Florio, you think that the suspension for Roethlisberger is fine, but do not feel that a suspension in this case is likely.
    And the difference in the two cases are that Roethlisberger was named in a civil suit in Nevada by a woman that has been basically called a liar by people she considered her friends. Do you really think that McNulty’s case has that significant a bearing on Roethlisberger’s suspension?
    You should be writing a piece about how if Underwood is NOT suspended it shows a reverse double non-racism standard non-standard by NFL teams.

  15. leon999 says: Jun 8, 2010 8:06 AM

    Word up north is that these two were hookers who stole his wallet after sex… he got mad and made some threats back… they struck back with a call to the cops about gang-rape… then backed off completely under the questioning.

    Wouldn’t that be post-emptive suspension?
    Well, if the girls changed their stories, chances are they made up the whole thing, and he shouldn’t face anything. But what’s concerning is his teammates’ collective sentiment toward him. I’d like to know more about that, although we could also use more Tim Tebow stories.

  23. steveack says: Jun 8, 2010 8:35 AM

    Precedent has been set. The league needs to investigate and one more accusation, true or not, he should under go evaluation and possible suspension. Roethlisberger’s accuser changed her statements to police three times and there was no physical evidence.

  24. watters7 says: Jun 8, 2010 8:42 AM

    Hold on, hold on, you’re saying a Packer had sex with a female? No way! Media just ran with this one…

  25. silverback says: Jun 8, 2010 8:43 AM

    They should trade this guy to Cincinnati immediately with the rest of the league’s criminals.

  26. realitypolice says: Jun 8, 2010 8:43 AM

    I think this guy is worse than Big Ben. BB may have acted like a dirtbag- a 28 year old multi-millionaire groping drunken college chicks in dirty bar bathrooms, but at least he wasn’t cheating on anyone.
    This guy is worse. He is married- which in my mind makes him a whole different class of scumbag. Why don’t these douchebags wait until their careers are over to get married if they know they won’t be able to remember their vows the first time a groupie sticks their tits in their face?
    I think it’s hilarious though that they met at a club called
    “Cruisin’ Chubbies”.

  27. seals says: Jun 8, 2010 8:48 AM

    i’m happy to see he is getting off, he seems like a perfect fit for the packers franchise. A player that no other packer player stuck up for. He serves the vikings better being on the team.

  28. Ralph says: Jun 8, 2010 8:53 AM

    Repeat behavior idiot, this was the 2nd time in a year that Rapistberger was in the spot light for the same situation. If it happens again I am sure there will be more consideration, however nothing about this even gives the impression that he did anything illegal. Just a couple sloots looking to line their pockets.

  30. wrath4771 says: Jun 8, 2010 8:57 AM

    I think the league should look at Underwood closely even though the criminal investigation appears done, but really it’s a shame for professional players that even if they are just minding their own business and trying to have a good time they have to be so careful. This is especially true in Green Bay because these guys are the only game in town and everyone from the age of 4 to 88 knows them on sight.

  31. jimmySee says: Jun 8, 2010 8:58 AM

    Underwood still has some explaining to do at home.

    i’ll use the rational of a packer fan if this was a vikings player:
    they are guilty. they shouldn’t have been there. they should know better. they are guilty. no question. they are a team full of rapists. anybody there should be thrown in prison.

  36. BengalsDouche2 says: Jun 8, 2010 9:10 AM

    Silverback- Yeah that joke isn’t old at all. Too bad our guys aren’t out raping women and having their off duty cops hired as security block entry ways so they can rape an underage drunk chick. yeah Maualuga was with a couple of chicks that were under 21 and drunk but he wasn’t accused of raping them. How many of us have hung out with girls under 21 and drunk? Probably quite a few of us. Errr scratch that. Most of you are 40yr old virgins still chillin in your parents’ basement on your laptop acting like a badass. Anyway, quit with the Cincy jokes. They’re old and don’t even work anymore. The guys we have are staying clean.

  37. seals says: Jun 8, 2010 9:15 AM

    Funny side note: The girls that the vikings brought onto the love boat wanted to be there and stayed happily and probably have been contacted since. The Hoes packer players use don’t even like you guys.
    Even the packer hoes can’t stand ya.

  38. longestlegs says: Jun 8, 2010 9:16 AM

    Its pretty stupid that so many ignorant, sexist dudes, scream ‘gold digger’ at the slightest accusation of sexual assault. I can not recall a SINGLE instance where a woman was awarded monies, or a case even went to trial, outside of Kobe Bryant.
    Dudes need a wake up call.
    Not only do these women not get awarded money, but its rare that anything even makes it trial, and on top of that, the identies of these women are anonymous.
    I hope all of your mothers are appropriately ashamed of how shitty you dudes are.

    It looks like the latest trend. Women making false allegations about pro players hoping to hit the lottery.
    Maybe the police need to start arresting these women for false reports since I’m sure the players wouldn’t get a cent if they tried to sue for defamation from these lying bums.

    Its true, women standing up for themselves as human beings is a true tragedy.

  47. realitypolice says: Jun 8, 2010 9:46 AM

    I love the way everyone blames the women- as if it is perfectly natural to assume that the players are completely unable to exert any self control and have absolutely no level of maturity or ability make good decisions, and that we shouldn’t expect any more of them.
    If these guys aren’t smart enough to see what these women are after then they deserve whatever they get.
    Seriously guys- if your marriage vows mean nothing to you (in Underwood’s case) or you are just plain horny (Big Ben), peel off a few hundreds from that stack and hire yourself a good professional escort.
    She’ll be better looking and better in the sack than these skanks you’re groping in bathrooms, and a lot more discreet. And when your done- she’ll leave, which is all you really want in your women anyway.

  48. Vipercwf says: Jun 8, 2010 10:01 AM

    To all the idiots saying its “not fair” about Big Ben getting suspended and not Underwood…Um Hello, Big Ben had MULTIPLE incidents and the one in Nevada prior was NOT the only one if you did your reading. Multiple other allegations like that with Big Ben came up and this was the final straw for the commissioner. This was underwoods first time. Big Ben didn’t get suspended his first time either…

  49. Duck Fallas says: Jun 8, 2010 10:25 AM

    Hold on you simple-minded idiots. The allegations just came out against this guy and you’re already complaining that he isn’t being treated like Roethlisburger.
    If you can’t see the difference between a single incident that just occurred and a pattern of behavior carried out over a longer period of time then there’s no point in going any further.

  50. Vipercwf says: Jun 8, 2010 10:25 AM

    Ya because even though these guys have money and are famous they are so desperate to get a piece of ACE because they can’t get any women that they take turns letting one get a piece of action by all coming together and holding them down to take there turns. All without a single scratch on the victims or themselves. I’ll bet they forced them to come back to the condo with them from the bar to.
    Ya, and Santa Claus really exists.

  51. green&bold says: Jun 8, 2010 10:30 AM

    I wouldn’t be upset that people are blaming the girls in this case. I’d be upset that women out there do things like this and provide ammunition to defense attorneys in cases where a woman was actually assaulted. Maybe Underwood is stupid and he certainly is a bad husband, but these women are despicable. Just good ol fashion extortion. I’m sure there will still be a civil suit.
    Reality Police has it right. Never understood why players 1. don’t hire a driver for their nights out drinking and 2. don’t hire a professional for a few hundo.

  52. purpleguy says: Jun 8, 2010 10:40 AM

    Vikings fans disappointed with this turn of events? Like we care that a (married) dumbass 3rd stringer, at best, played hide the bratwurst with 2 thirtysomething WI skanks, and at worst, sexually assualted them when other Pack players knew he wandered off with them? Like we care that this happens at the same time John Jolly is facing trial for drug possession? We only care when the same crap inevitably happens to a dumbass Viking player and you cheesers throw the same old stupid comments from your green and gold glass houses.

    Other than Rothlisberger, who is a starting QB. I’ve never seen you cover so in-depth, an alledged misconduct by a player.
    Keep in mind this is a 6th round pick, who only got in the game b/c of numerous injuries to the Packers secondary.
    The Williams case, the love boat, JA’s drinking, Koren’s speeding and drinking, etc, etc. Never saw more than a post a day for those, yet a Packer gets in trouble and 3-4 posts a day, b4 he is even charged.
    Further proof Florio is a Viking Homer, and a sad journalist. He has to post as much dirt on as many players as he can, for the HITS!
    Until some actual FACTS come out, why don’t you chill on all the speculation. There are some vicious woman out there that will do anything for a buck, or some twisted sense of revenge. Underwood probably disrespected these whores, and they are looking for revenge.

Why would they support someone who has put a “black eye” on their reputation, although they did absolutely nothing wrong. JMO
