Report: No timeline for NFL decision on Antonio Brown

Getty Images

The NFL met with Britney Taylor on Monday about the allegations of rape and sexual assault that she levied against Patriots wide receiver Antonio Brown in a lawsuit last week.

Mark Maske of the Washington Post reports that the meeting with Taylor lasted 10 hours, but it did not end with a decision about placing Brown on the Commissioner-Exempt list. Maske reports there’s no timeline for the league to make their decision because the investigation into Brown’s behavior remains open.

Brown was the subject of another accusation of improper conduct with a woman this week. There’s been no word of an attempt to interview that woman or plans to interview anyone else at this point.

If Brown is placed on the list, he’ll be paid but will be unable to take part in practices or games. The placement would be indefinite and Brown would be able to appeal the league’s decision.

The Patriots return to the field against the Jets on Sunday. If no decision is made to place Brown on the exempt list, he should make his second appearance since signing with the team earlier this month.

  1. if the NFL wants to regain some of their fanbase they have lost over the past few years coming down on Antonio Brown for his laundry list of offenses is a great place to start. people have grown tired of the antics and lack of action by the league

  2. Hopefully the NFL realizes this is just a money grab. It wouldn’t be fair to do that just off a non-criminal accusation/lawsuit, sets a bad precedent for athletes. Any crazy can start doing it to opposing teams. Let the legal lawsuit play out, otherwise this is really a non-issue and AB shouldn’t be punished by the NFL.

  3. The NFL should just shut up when it comes to violence and the treatment of women because they obviously couldn’t care less.

    The league is full of these turds and there’s more of them everyday.

  4. Thank God for AB, otherwise every story would be about Colin Kaepernick every day forever.

    You keep doing you AB!!!

  5. Roger Goodell should have a private conversation with Rosenhaus and tell him to encourage his client to settle. Sometimes you pay just because you got involved with the wrong woman. That’s life. Pay for your mistake and let everyone move on.

  6. Nothings gonna happen. They gonna keep winning. A.b. will be a role model, and win another superbowl. Life goes on.

  7. Why should anyone expect anything…..its the Pats. Heard anything about Hany Bob Krafts situation. The NFL loves the Pats, Brady and Grumpy Old Cheating Bill…nothing new here.

  8. 55% of the nfl would be suspended if everytime these guys got sued and then were placed on that list. i don t think anyone is dumb enough to think nfl players are good people. they re just good at football.

  9. If they let Tyreek Hill play this season without any suspension or anything at all, then no way they should be able to do anything to AB at the moment. And Hill’s was an actual serious criminal investigation, involving child and domestic abuse. AB is just trying to get extorted by a bitter side chick.

  10. As a Pats’ fan, I’d like nothing better than for Brown to be suspended. keep him away from the Chiefs, the Cowboys and Rams (etc.), but keep him off the field for the Pats. Low life.

  11. If it were any other commissioner in a pro sport I’d feel bad for them being caught between the devil of #metoo and the deep blue sea of ongoing CBA negotiations. But it’s not, it’s Fraudger Goodell so I am more than happy to see him in the crosshairs having to call the ball on something as iffy as this case. He made the bed, he can lay in it.

  12. So, after 10 hours should didn’t have proof enough to even convince Goodell to put him on the exempt list?

    Umm, we have a problem here…A big problem…I can see why he is counter-suing for damages she is currently creating.

    She better back off or the extortion thing here if after 10 hours Goodell isn’t creeped out enough to put him on the list.

    Is this sort of like framing NE for Deflateate to re-direct Goodell trying to protect the Ravens, when in reality if Goodell wasn’t so hellbent on his cheating (protecting all AFC teams not named NE), while framing the Pats when he sees an opportunity? Is it kinda like that, because that’s what it sounds like even though these purported events occurred WHILE he was on the Steelers.

    This is true. It’s very easy to file a civil suit. It can be done in any court in America very swiftly.

    Also, Tyreek Hill is active for the Chiefs on a roster, as is Frank Clark and Kareem Hunt, all convicted of domestic assault. So, Goody has himself in quite the pickle if he tries to cheat the Pats here.

    Do you have a learning disability. You don’t need 10 hours to know if someone is telling the truth.

    Obviously, if after 10 hours he’s not on the exempt list as the announcement, there is nothing there and the gal is not credible.

    Yes, and they took away draft picks and suspended Brady to save the Patriots money and to also keep Brady fresh for later in the season. By the way, do you believe the Earth is flat and we never landed on the moon?

  17. Love the NFL wont do anything & They Love the Pats comments….
    Just shows me how OUT OF TOUCH WITH REALITY they all are….
    & all the moral police get behind their keyboards & tell us all how classless & despising they are for signing a player like AB…..what’s even more funny is NOBODY cared when he was with Pittsburgh and or Raiders when all these ALLEGED ALLEGATIONS occurred & it wasn’t till after he signed until all of them came to light….
    I just sit back & laugh…..

  18. There’s no precedent for this. Tyreek Hill wasn’t suspended and there was evidence. The league made a huge mistake getting involved.

  19. He’s buddies with Brady, Belichick, and Kraft. He brags of sexual assault. Multiple accusers have come forward. On top of that, he doesn’t pay his bills, stiffing anyone and everyone. He raves on Twitter like a maniac. He’s not a team player — it’s always about him. He’s a narcissist of the first order.

    And we elected him President of the United States.

    Now, about Antonio Brown …

  20. There isn’t one single reason to settle unless the masturbation story is true. It was a reprehensible act and she deserves monetary outcome.

    If he settles for rape allegation, then it means he raped her and for that, he should be thrown out of NFL.

    It is too serious an allegation to settle. If he didn’t rape her, he has to fight it to the end.

    Let us not forget Dr. Victor Prisk the list of victims is getting longer.

    Is farting while being examined by a doctor a crime of violence?! Asking for a friend. 🙂

    He did apologize though.

  22. Keep in mind, he still gets paid WHILE on the list, so there is no real harm to do it for even a week.

    10 hours and they still are not convinced? This gal is in serious trouble, legally.

  23. Not arguing that he needs to make a lot better choices, the man is disgusting in many ways. But here is where I struggle with her claim. Forget about her continuing to be around him after two alleged sexual assaults. I’m not a woman and not a rape victim. But I can’t rationalize how someone rapes you and the next morning you go back to his house to “get your stuff”. What stuff is so important that you would put yourself in jeopardy not only going there, but going there alone? Either you didn’t have a key, which means you expected your alleged rapist to be there. Or you did have a key to get in which would validate his argument that there was a consensual relationship.

    Umm, it’s somewhat clear to anyone who reads the broken English on the texts, that he is not talking about masturbating but not ejaculating. He lashes out in anger almost as if her text is talking about being pregnant.

    Get it?

    This take could be wrong, but we don’t know. It’s sort of naive to think they dated, had admitted consensual sex and somehow she is not allowing the sex she once allowed to occur anymore.

    If we can’t see the entire text exchange, it does us no good, but it really looks like she is trying to extort him for financial gain, throwing things at the wall.

    She had a line on her gym and asked him for 1.6 million, for example. He refused, and this is the result. It’s very suspicious.

  25. The patriots are the most cheat oriented fraudulant organization in american history, right up there with the koza nostra. All of their titles or any of their records should be considered a complete screw job to the rest of the league put on specifically by the NFL. Good job guys..the last 2 decades in this league look completely fake and should be looked upon like the steroid era in baseball. Now I’ll excuse you while you look the other way while Bill and the cheats film another opponents practice, Or your officials screw with the clock..or botch another call. Joke.

  26. For those of you saying it’s a money grab, she is not credible, etc. etc. I understand (somewhat) your thoughts. But how about you look as the whole ball of wax that is antonio brown? This dirtbag has cheated many different people, stolen from a charity, had numerous affairs, flaunting it in front of his “girlfriend” but more importantly, in front of his kids, pitched temper tantrums that came close to injuring a young child….. He is a flaming dirtbag POS! Why not suspend him for conduct unbecoming or whatever the NFL calls it? I don’t want his sorry butt on the commish’s list; he’ll get paid on that! Suspend him and bury him. If this is the last story I ever read about this jerk, it will make me a very happy person.

    All true except most humans put a lot more value into the POTUS than a football player who is a diva with some behavioral/maturity issues.

    I don’t think you’ll find one Pats fan not acknowledging this. It’s the part about framing someone that Pats fans have a sensitivity towards, because you know.

    lmao

  28. Every thing is hearsay at this point….
    It’s a CIVIL suit, NOT EVEN criminal…..
    Civil suit= Money….this IS what she wants
    Criminal suit= Justice…she doesn’t want this….ask yourself why!!??!!
    ALLEGEDLY sexually assaulted TWICE in 2017….. Why put herself in a position for it to happen again??
    So much doesn’t make sense here….
    AB MAY be a jerk & have some issues….but he’s a very HIGH PROFILE RICH jerk…..THAT is the difference between him & so many others out there…$$$$ , just sayin!!!

  29. No one knows the actual facts here, but there are several things that are undisputed: (1) Brown follows his own rules, not the team rules; (2) he doesn’t pay his bills and treats those that work for him like dirt; (3) he cheats on the mother of his children; and (4) he’s emotionally unstable (See, furniture thrown out of high rise condo). While based on these known factors, the sexual harassment and rape allegations are more likely than not, they have not yet fully investigated or established, and until they are, he shouldn’t be suspended. Regardless, I have a hard time believing Brown’s professional and personal life are going to end all that well.

    New England is losing respect and fans by the minute by keeping this guy.

    And if the Patriots cut him another team will pick him up.

    Do you really think NE was the only team that called when he became a FA?

    The real question is will all these same FRAUDS on here CRY if NE released him then he gets picked up by another team?

    And if you think another team WOULD NOT you’re crazy.

    More FAKE outrage because it’s the Patriots.

  31. @chrish561

    The league does not need precedent. We have seen they can do anything to any player, good or bad, for a reason or no reason.

    The league should have suspended Hunt, and they did. The league should have suspended Tyreek Hill, and they did not.

    Should the league suspend Brown for quitting on two teams in less than a year, and these allegations, maybe. But it is anyone’s guess what they will do.

  32. I would hope the NFL comes out an either (a) suspends AB, or (b) says they are not going to suspend AB. The last thing I want it to ready articles week after week about an ongoing investigation. Make the decision and go with it.

  33. The trophy case of the Patriots needs to be expanded to allow for the additional asterisks that accompany almost every trophy. There is no need to add Brown to the already powerful team ,but by doing so they assure themselves of another asterisk for the almost-certain tampering that resulted in the almost-instant signing of Brown after his release from the Raiders.

  34. Goodell isn’t going to do anything until the Pats schedule gets tougher. Right around the Cowboy and Chiefs stretch.

    We’ve seen this movie before. Owners will high five. Pats will get the annual chip on their shoulder.

    And the clown will have to hand Kraft another Lombardi.

  35. Not sure why this woman would not have been claiming rape right away and have a criminal case against AB. Kind of sounds like a money grab.

  36. I do find it disheartening that some will lump all NFL players into this category of abusers. Not even remotely true and irresponsible to say so. Nearly 1,700 players on the rosters, plus administrative and supporting staff, practice squads, coaching, etc. Thousands of people, the vast, vast majority of them good. Just like real life. Not all doctors, military, police, firefighters, everyday Joe’s, are good people or hero’s just because they are good at what they do. But a few bad ones in a category does not make them all bad.

    That being said, I wouldn’t condemn this AB character until all the facts are in, but I certainly am no fan of his by even the tiniest stretch of anyone’s imagination. He’s very good at catching a football, beyond that he isn’t any more special than any of us and he may be much, much worse than most.

    ——————————-
    The no action with convicted woman beater Tyreek Hill and film of Kareem started the slippery slope. Teams may lose a player but nothing else. So Roger should include getting rid of Dorsey and Reid from the NFL, clearly they do not care about moral ethics or character only wins, they brought those two into the league, so all five should be gone.

  38. What I’ve learned here is that the amount of time one is interviewed is relevant to the guilt or innocence of the accused or the veracity of the accuser.
    So if she walked out of the office in 30 minutes, that would be proof of Brown’s guilt?

  39. “anyother team besides the patriots.. the league would have suspended him by now..”

    Yeah Tyreek Hill and quite a few others wave hello.

  40. Patriots fan here. Was not in favor of signing AB. That said, better to have him than KC having him. I have no idea whether this guy is guilty or not. If he is… out of here. Peyton Manning was also involved in a civil law suit, in fact two of them, for sexual harassment. I do find it interesting that nobody called for him to get suspended pending those cases. (He settled BTW. One before NFL.. the other off-chute case while in NFL.) I don’t remember much outrage. As they say, “just saying…” The fact of the matter is you can’t go suspending guys for civil law suits.

  41. Brainwashed Pats fans support the signing of AB even though the Pats knew about this civil suit. No other team would’ve signed him except the morally corrupt Pats.

    And AB has a long list of violence and scamming people and the Pats simply don’t care how they win.

    Just because a person doesn’t have a dirty mind does not make them brainwashed. It only looks like that to the people with dirty minds.

    You info is wrong, several teams were in the running for AB, its just that the Pats won. (I know you get sick of hearing that.) I think now that the truth is speaking for real here we are getting to what it is really that has you so sore.

    You should see it. Its big and roomy, they left room for a few more. And the trophies are so bright and shiny under the lights, not an ounce of tarnish on any of them.

    ————-
    Cool story bro but you are just like those NY Times writers, you tend to leave out the pertinent facts. Like the fact that Hill was never charged with anything and his live in admitted she lied and oh maybe the biggest one the police admitted the child fell due to an accident. But keep pumping the false narrative. Anything to cover up another Patriot scandal. BTW how is it that Patrick Chung is still playing for the Pat’s when the police charged him with cocaine trafficking after they found 2 kilos of cocaine in his house?

  51. Yes, and they took away draft picks and suspended Brady to save the Patriots money and to also keep Brady fresh for later in the season. By the way, do you believe the Earth is flat and we never landed on the moon?

    It’s alright to be a homer but a blind obtuse one with a smart mouth is the worst. Kraft, Chung, Gordon and now AB and you wonder why so many people hate homers like you who ignores the facts because it doesnt fit the agenda. Of course your team is never wrong…..little children every where.

  52. Pat’s hater here but lighten up on them. Aside from alleged unproven tampering issues, when the Pat’s signed AB they and the NFL had no apparent knowledge of the rape charges. AB was available and the Pat’s struck first. BB, arguably the GOAT GM, saw a valuable asset and swooped in. Can you blame him? It is not his role to be the judge, jury and conscious of the NFL. If there was tampering, NE will get burned again.

    Personally, I think AB is one dirty scumbag. Way too many allegations against him not involving money grabs. But to succeed in the NFL, it’s all about wins. Nobody knows that better than NE no matter how lacking that franchise is in integrity, morals and fairplay.

    It would appear the NFL has more than enough to suspend Brown but without a criminal complaint they are moving slowly. Shame on them. All this integrity of the shield is BS. The NFL is about one thing and one thing only. Money.

  53. Did anyone honestly think they would make a decision after talking to just 1 person? Unless that person comes in with something concrete like video evidence then it’s always going to take more than 1 interview.

  54. anyother team besides the patriots.. the league would have suspended him by now..

Any crazy can start doing it to opposing teams. Let the legal lawsuit play out, otherwise this is really a non-issue and AB shouldn’t be punished by the NFL.
    —————————-

    If AB turns out to be guilty of rape the NFL is going to get roasted for every minute they let him play. They know this and the second they think there might be something in this that could lead to that they will put him on the exempt list. Thats the point of the exempt list is to have a way to hold the player up without docking them while they pursued something where there is ‘reason to suspect there might be something’. The reason the NFL has not put him on the list yet is because they have yet to have that ‘reason to suspect there might be something’. A lot of the push to suspend him without waiting for that ’reason to think there might be something’ is actually driven by people who see a rape charge as nothing more than a lever to possibly help their team. (So really their character is no better than ABs. A person thinking that way is the textbook definition of a misogynist) The NFL knows this and they are being careful to not fall into that trap. Taking action against him would be just as damaging to the NFL and the protection of women if it turned out after that this was nothing but a money grab. Frankly the #metoo movement is in just as dicey a situation as the NFL. To have such a high profile situation turn out to be a false accusation would be devastating to their credibility. So they want the NFL to be careful and get this right as much as anyone. On the other hand, if they can get a shred of anything that backs her story then they can easily stick him on the luit and as long as they gave even tiny thing to point to they are covered even if the case turned out to be false. The N.fL wants and needs that little shred if an excuse because its about the only way for them to get out if wandering in a minefield like they are now. They can use it to ‘protect the brand, they actually need it to get the brand out if the danger it is in currently’. But right now it is looking like a 10 hour meeting did not produce that one little shred if anything because they would have acted immediately if they had it. Do not underestimate the NFLs desire to protect the brand. Do not kid yourself that they would risk the brand to help any one team keep any player on their roster. If they are not acting on that one little shred if anything then they don’t have it.

And, not that they started last night or yesterday during various halftimes. Any sensible lawyer would have limited the time, both consecutive hours and overall. Sounds like the NFL may have borrowed procedure from the California Racing Board.

    There isn’t one single reason to settle unless the masturbation story is true. It was a reprehensible act and she deserves monetary outcome.

    If he settles for rape allegation, then it means he raped her and for that, he should be thrown out of NFL.

    It is too serious an allegation to settle. If he didn’t rape her, he has to fight it to the end.
    ____________________

    Wrong. An accusation can cost millions to defend in court. A lawyer to defend you costs 1.5 million, with this you set a settle price of say 1 million, saving yourself 500k. Once it goes past your settle price you have to choose weather or not to just go to court and defend yourself. Sadly, settling is the easiest and cheapest way to handle these accusations most of the time… and the accusers know this.

    Brainwashed Pats fans support the signing of AB even though the Pats knew about this civil suit. No other team would’ve signed him except the morally corrupt Pats.

    And AB has a long list of violence and scamming people and the Pats simply don’t care how they win.

    You info is wrong, several teams were in the running for AB, its just that the Pats won. (I know you get sick of hearing that.) I think now that the truth is speaking for real here we are getting to what it is really that has you so sore.

    And no one knows if these teams would’ve signed AB if they knew about the civil suit. And you’re wrong. The Pats LOST

    This article was posted at 4:20. Ten hours prior to that was 6:20 A.M. Sorry, but based on that math, I do not buy that they talked with her (or anyone) for ten hours. Where did that come from? And, not that they started last night or yesterday during various halftimes. Any sensible lawyer would have limited the time, both consecutive hours and overall. Sounds like the NFL may have borrowed procedure from the California Racing Board.

    Actually it is Tuesday now. The meeting was on Monday which was yesterday.

  64. A non disclosure agreement only prevents you from disclosing the terms of the negotiations. AB could’ve told the Pats he’s been accused of sexual assault and it may turn into a civil suit w/o disclosing the person or any other details.

    Oh its perfect all right. Ill give you that. Probably not the way you hoped. But yeah, perfect.

  68. I’m not here saying AB is guilty of rape and I don’t think players s/b put on the exempt list for non civil lawsuits.

    My issue with the Pats is if they knew about the civil suit they shouldn’t have signed him. If they didn’t know about it they should’ve cut him. It’s the accumulation of issues with AB.

    He screwed over both the Steelers and Raiders

    He had a confrontation with Mayock

    I’m a fit of rage in 2018 he threw stuff over his balcony that missed a 22 month old and his grandfather by 2 feet. It could’ve killed them. They filed a civil suit.

    AB has a history of scamming people and possibly domestic violence.

    The trophy case of the Patriots needs to be expanded to allow for the additional asterisks…
    —————————————-

    Rams fan, no need to ask how the big bad Patriots hurt you. THREE points scored in a Super Bowl, that’s gotta leave a mark

  70. For those of you claiming that this woman “couldn’t convince Goodell in 10 hours therefore, there’s nothing there.” You don’t know how it works. There were a bunch of lawyers in that room asking questions and cross examining her to see if she’s credible. They’re also going to ask her about motive and all that. Remember, this womantook a lie detector test and passed. At this point, we’re just waiting on Goodell to make a decision. Until then, please stop making this about a football thing. It’s much bigger than that.

  71. Patriot fans are the lowest of the low. If the Colts or Ravens for example, signed this guy, they would be bombarding every article slamming them and calling out goodell as favoring them and wanting the patriots to lose. Same incompetent hypocrites in every article. Just like they gave that lowlife David Ortiz a standing ovation, they cheat in every sport and defend it all

    I can fool a lie detector at will. We had to do a study on this and a guy came in and taught every one of us to do it, and every one of us were able to learn once he explained it. He also showed how to flunk one at will, thats actually easy too. There is a reason those things still are not allowed in court.

    You are explaining while your entire life is just living on Pats articles but no one asked why. Its just funny that you do. And yeah, the fact that you just make up whatever suits you and try to sell it as truth just makes you that much funnier to everyone.

    BTW, no matter what you say or do the Pats are still going to win. Your choices are to either get over it or…or….I guess you just do this the rest if your life.

  76. personal plea to bill. release this guy. YOU DONT NEED HIM. disclaimer. i love the pats. ive always hated AB. i hate it that hes on our team. seriously, look at your roster. you can cut this guy right now and not even notice hes missing from the rotation. who cares if this baggage latches on somewhere else. hes not worth the distraction. like he said to ben he just had to get his ends. you like to make examples of people. make an example of this secretive liar.

    Wrong again. I’m not posting 24/7 so my entire life is not living on Pats articles.

    And tell me what I’m making up? You can’t w/o lying.

    What’s funny is me exposing all your lies, which I do with facts.

    I’m waiting for you to tell me what I make up. You can’t lie either. Try it. Come on. It’s so funny you can’t.

  79. Now that the NFL has interviewed Brown’s accuser, won’t they have to interview Brown before making any decision? That would really be bad if they put him on an exemption list without hearing his side. I imagine a lot of the questions they ask him will be to get his responses to her accusations and the details as he sees them.

  80. The failure here is in any team signing this cancer. Especially the Pats, who needed/need him the least. Pats are on their way to 13-3 or better season based on a joke schedule…the last thing they need is AB and all the guilt/shame that comes with signing him. Win at all costs has it’s limit, as the Pats crossed the line with signing this moron.

  81. Lol…. AB is on the Pats & it drives the other 31 Organizations fans bat poop crazy…,,& that just makes me enjoy it all that much more!!!!!

  82. Hope Brown keeps playing and getting better as a Patriot. The NE Patriots juggernaut will be greased with the tears of fans who lost their QBs, made bad trades, overpaid free agents, or just can’t stand the NE success.
    Frankly, I don’t care about the personal life of any of the players. I like to watch pro football and watch my team win.

    if the NFL wants to regain some of their fanbase they have lost over the past few years coming down on Antonio Brown for his laundry list of offenses is a great place to start. people have grown tired of the antics and lack of action by the league

    If I’m reading this right, 345 up, 363 down, would mean you are pretty much spot on.

    AB = Another Banner
    ______

    Still at it with the hypocrisy after all these years.

    Who could forget the pious speeches and moralizing lectures ampats delivered with Roethlisberger’s unproven allegations? Oh how outraged he was!

    But with Brown it’s all “go baby! Bring us a ring.” No problem with his allegations. Ha ha!

    The legend lives, ampats the Hall of Fame hypocrite.

  85. As a Patriots fan , it is exciting to think of what the TB12 to AB connection might create on the field. However, I would prefer that Brown not be on the roster. I am proud of the Patriots’ history of getting rid of players with this type of baggage. I also am confident that they would contend for a Super Bowl without him. Here is the problem:: Of the NFL suspends him they will be insentivising players settling out of court with confidentiality agreements. If Brown had just done this, we, or the league would’ve known nothing about it. If players did this more routinely, it would also incentivize blackmail schemes. I am not saying that Taylor is lying here. But, players around the league are watching.

  86. I think the big picture here is that the NFL continues to basically ignore the ‘conduct detrimental’ morality clause here. If the Patriots didn’t sign him, someone else would have. Too many players continue to play despite their actions, like Kareem Hunt, Antonio Brown, Tyreek Hill, etc. If the league truly wants to clean up their organization, they would enforce unilaterally to ensure everyone gets the message that certain behaviors are unacceptable, no matter how good you are.

    Art Rooney should have sat him and not given in when he started this BS; he should have been suspended for any number of transgressions when he was a Steeler; the league should have suspended him for attacking Mayock when he was with this Raiders. THis is where the league needs to step in.

  87. “The failure here is in any team signing this cancer. Especially the Pats, who needed/need him the least.

    Pats fans are so predictable
    ——————————–

    Truer words have never been posted on this site.

    Everyone can always count on us Pats fans to be intelligent, objective, witty and humble with our posts. Absolutely predictable.

  89. If she was willing to accept money to settle and never pursued prosecution, allow him to settle and let it go. If she won’t settle, and has actual proof of something, suspend him. But we are dangerously close to witch hunt when someone can say you did something and you get busted at your job for it. For me, how reliable those texts are would be the key. If she can show the texts are actually from him or his cousin can corroborate her story, that’s punishable. But not doing anything about it at the time and making claims later in a civil case is entirely fishy.
    I have little doubt he actually did it, sounds like him. But if he gets suspended and Tyreek Hill doesn’t, I’m calling BS.

  90. 10 hours and still not convinced….Speechless.

    10 hours keep to the same story is what was happening and for you would be 10 minutes before you were exposed. As one who has interrogated before you ask the same question in many different ways and if the answer is the same she is probably telling the truth….that takes time…..I am surprised at a CEO not knowing this.

    AB is next and I doubt he cant keep his story as long as Ty the guy.

  91. I love how some people in here are taking the length of the interview as proof that AB didn’t do anything wrong. Clearly these people have no idea how the process works. The length of the interview suggests that the NFL engaged in thorough questioning and nothing more. It’s not as if Goodell was there in person asking questions and coming to a snap judgment about the truth of the matter. If anything, the fact that the individual was willing to speak with the NFL for so long suggests that she is serious about getting her side of the issue heard and taken seriously.

    Your comment reeks of ignorance and jealousy. Not surprising, coming from a Dolphins fan. All you have left this season is more anger and hatred.

  94. Notice how there was no complaint or investigation when AB was a Steeler

    How there was no complaint or investigation when AB was a Raider

    But the moment he’s picked up by the Patriots …

  95. From now on the League should vet out every draft pick and every player entering the draft with a 10 hour interview and determine if they have the character to be an NFL player.

    Bad men, regardless of their talent, should not be allowed. Starting right now, we should have a massive purge and remove all of the bad people from NFL rosters. I think the league should appoint a congress of fans to determine their character.

    To be even more effective, go back 35 years and remove all of the Bad Men from the NFL pension rolls who played this game.

    I think this would be an acceptable solution.
