  1. Is it too soon to say that the Constitutional Republic is at stake here? If the Trump administration successfully keeps this information hidden from Congress, I think we can safely say that we have crossed the point of no return.
  2. I've worked for companies that went through Chapter 11 restructuring and all of them did so because the capital structure was turned upside down due to mismanagement by PE vampire squid. After emerging from bankruptcy, the companies all became profitable again. Until we start regulating LBOs and their structural disincentives to maintain corporate fiscal responsibility, Chapter 11 shouldn't be touched.
  3. Being 47 and from Boston, this one really stings.
  4. Fair enough, and I understand your point. However, this does open up a difficult can of worms. What should the league have done with Marcell Dareus when he faced a similar situation back in January 2017 (he was accused TWICE in civil cases of drugging and raping two women) -- One civil case was dismissed earlier this year and I believe there's a separate one still pending. Should he have been suspended all that time? Should the NFL suspend him now? How about Tajae Sharpe when he was sued for allegedly assaulting someone in 2017 even though he faced no criminal charges?
  5. I have this sneaking suspicion that if this involved, let's say, your favorite team's number one pick in the draft and he was facing a civil lawsuit (no criminal charges filed), you'd scream bloody murder if the league kept him off of the football field for 2-3 years without any due process. It's easy to make this solely about Antonio Brown, and as I've said all along, I STILL think he's more likely than not guilty of these allegations (although I'm leaning more toward 50/50 based on some of the recent info) and I'm fully in favor of the Pats releasing him. That said, I'm 100% against the NFL using the exempt list in this case.
  6. It speaks to the claims made in the complaint that she and Brown “were not in a romantic relationship” and that they “had a brother and sister relationship.” If that turns out to be false, then other claims in the complaint can be on shaky ground as well. This is a legal argument, and a strong one.
  7. I think you'd have a really hard time in court with that argument, counselor. If those videos made it in front of a jury, her case is on VERY shaky ground.
  8. Looked like a pillow behind them. Could be wrong. Still, that doesn't scream "professional relationship" to me.
  9. No, the first TikTok video where she's sitting on his lap in bed, sticking her tongue out flipping the bird to the phone.
  10. I don't know. That sure looks more intimate than "chummy" to me.
  11. The Allegheny DA's office is now saying they are NOT investigating Brown as part of this lawsuit but they looked into allegations of child endangerment involving Brown and did not pursue an investigation. I wonder if that's somehow related to this whole mess too since the accuser says that she used to look after his children.
  12. I'm 100% with you. But I found it interesting that Rosenhaus has emphatically stated that Brown will be cleared of all of this so his expectation has to be that the Brown camp must have some evidence which shows that this was an extortion play. I guess we'll see.
  13. I think that's entirely fair and my gut tells me that this is likely the case. But I'm also not dismissing the (admittedly lesser) possibility that a woman who is pretty devious who also has some serious financial issues could entrap/extort a wealthy person with psychological problems, seeing them as an easy mark.
  14. Brown and his attorneys have made the claim that this woman tried to get him to "invest" 7 figures in some sort of real estate fraud scheme and there are rumors that she and her mother owe a ton of money in back taxes. Again, I have no idea what happened here and still think that the Pats should get rid of Brown and all of the potential headaches, but there is a non-zero chance that this is a shakedown.
