  1. The CBS article is dated yesterday. https://www.cbssports.com/nfl/news/nfl-shockingly-decides-not-to-suspend-chiefs-wr-tyreek-hill-following-investigation/
  2. This article is from June 10th. The more recent articles I have read, and linked, say nothing of both parents being cleared. In fact they contradict what your article says. What I have read more recently, says that there is an ongoing DCF investigation. And that a crime was committed but they don’t have enough evidence to press charges. The SI article is more nuanced about what the Goodell did, and why he did it. I believe the parents are now in a custody battle, and more details may come to light. And if the DCF investigation uncovers more evidence the criminal case may be reopened. So I believe this isn’t over.
  3. One of the best explanations of all this I’ve seen. Thanks.
  4. Sorry, i have no idea how I did that.
  5. This I agree with completely. I hope the child is out of danger, and the suspensions don’t make a whole lot of sense. Herndon gets four games for DWI, but the NFL seems reluctant to punish in domestic violence cases. I don’t believe Hunt would have been suspended without the video. As a matter of fact, I seem to recall that the NFL was going to let him walk, and then the video was released. They need to reassess how they approach these cases.
  6. This is from a CBS sports article: This office has reviewed all the evidence and has declined to file charges against Tyreek Hill and Crystal Espinal," Johnson County District Attorney Steve Howe said. "We are deeply troubled by the situation. We believe a crime has occurred; however, the evidence in this case doesn't establish who committed a crime." Again that says nothing about investigators determining neither caused the broken arm. Rather they say they believe a crime occurred, but they don’t have the evidence to establish who did it. That is far from clearing them of responsibility.
  7. The investigators determined nothing of the sort. They said a crime was committed. This is a quote from the above article, including a statement from law enforcement: Local law enforcement authorities have publicly advised that the available evidence does not permit them to determine who caused the child's injuries,” the NFL said in its statement. League investigators interviewed family members of both Hill and Espinal. Johnson County district attorney Stephen M. Howe said in a statement in April that prosecutors “believe that a crime has occurred, but the evidence in this case does not conclusively establish who committed the crime against this child.” That does not say they think it was an accident. They did not imply that it could have possibly been an accident. They seem to believe someone caused those injuries. They also seem to believe that a crime was committed. They just don’t have enough evidence to charge anyone. Which I interpret to mean, someone broke the kids arm, but Mommy and Daddy aren’t talking so no one is being charged. Maybe I am wrong, but it seems pretty clear to me. And I’ve read that statement from law enforcement in more than one place.
  8. Also from that article: Local law enforcement authorities have publicly advised that the available evidence does not permit them to determine who caused the child's injuries,” the NFL said in its statement. League investigators interviewed family members of both Hill and Espinal. Johnson County district attorney Stephen M. Howe said in a statement in April that prosecutors “believe that a crime has occurred, but the evidence in this case does not conclusively establish who committed the crime against this child.”
  9. https://www.usatoday.com/story/sports/nfl/chiefs/2019/07/19/chiefs-tyreek-hill-nfl-no-suspension-investigation-child-abuse-allegations/1776290001/ Specifically says the DCF investigation is ongoing. Also the evidence won’t allow them to determine who caused the child’s injury. That doesn’t sound like they determined it was an accident. They just can’t charge either of them because they can’t determine who did it.
  10. They obviously cleared him. That is why they are still investigating. Because nothing happened. They do that frequently. They determine that no crime was committed, but they keep on investigating for the hell of it.
  11. I don’t understand how the NFL is so harsh on smoking weed, but they don’t seem to care all that much about domestic abuse. Unless it is caught on tape. I don’t think Ray Rice would have been suspended without video, or Hunt for that matter.
  12. He is still under investigation by the DCFS. He was not cleared by DCFS.
  13. Believe what you want. You may buy this story that Tyreek is innocent, and that he has been treated unfairly. I think he has violence in his past. And I think he did this. And if he gets off this time he will do it again. Because that is who he is.
  14. I do not believe for one second this was an accident. DCFS took the child out of the home immediately. They wouldn’t have done that unless they believed the child was in danger. And they are still investigating.
  15. Not to mention that a child’s arm was broken. That was not an accident. He either did it, or covered up for who did it.
