The NFL has never placed anyone on the exempt list as the result of a civil suit only.

This probably wont be a popular sentiment around here, but honestly this is the truth and the core of this country.  Good comment bud

 

But yeah, F the Pats and F AB!

This is relatively uncharted territory. Sexual assault in a civil suit is still sexual assault if he loses the case. I can’t say Roger will suspend him, but I would not be surprised if he did. The NFL doesn’t need to look like an enabler.

Good.

 

I want to dethrone the Pats with all their players.

 

It’s going to be epic.

 

Get your popcorn ready.

I am glad he didnt get on the exempt list, that would be a gift for the PAts as he wouldn't count against their 53 man roster.  He just got to New England,   i cm sure the Pats wouldn't mind a few weeks of practice with him and still maintain their current 53.

the burden on the plaintiff is much lower than criminal, so this is why the NFL probably leaves him alone at this point, even if he loses the suit, it won't matter.

Well they havent interviewed the alleged victim yet, so I am not surprised. I wonder if after what she shows and tells them, if that will still be the same

So why was Tyrel Dodson placed on the list?

 

Ohhhhh ... that's right ... because he's not a household name like Antonio "I Got Your Back," Brown.

Didn't Dodson get 6 games without being convicted of anything? Pats are the NFL's made team. People who think Goodell is out to get the Pats are morons. Kraft only went to that massage spa because Roger was busy.

Dodson was placed on the list prior to anything, but he just recently copped a plea (plead guilty) and thats when he was suspended

That's the big issue i see with this whole case. If this assault actually happened, why isn't it in criminal court? The fact that it is only a civil suit screams money grab from everywhere and this lady should be ashamed.

Dodson = criminal case

Brown = civil case

Or....history shows it's next to impossible to win a criminal rape case so she went the civil route where you only need the majority of the jury.

I wonder if the league will censor the broadcast booth from bringing the issue up during the game... the score will get out of hand QUICK, and lotʻs of dead air space to talk about things that arenʻt happening on the field

How does the NFL have the right to interview his accuser? They don't have any legal jurisdiction. Not sticking up for AB at all here, but this kind of stuff just blows my mind - that the NFL can conduct its own investigation of something as serious as rape, and that apparently because this is a civil case, they could go with whatever conclusion they want. And why a civil suit; why aren't the police involved? This whole thing is so bizarre to me. It's like law and order goes out the window when a famous athlete is involved.

the league has a personal conduct policy.  moral clauses in contracts etc.  if it hurts their brand you're out the door

I did not realize that, actually.  If they're being consistent here I'm OK with it.

I know that players have been disciplined or suspended as the result of a civil suit or even behavior in the absence of criminal charges.

This is marvelous. 

It deserves to be preserved and added to the English language as an insult.

 

However, Folks:

I enquired of Mr Google, and the memes of rhinoceros poo that showed up were too much for my delicate eyeballs.

So let's not and say we didn't

1) They dont.  I assume she volunteered to talk.

 

2)  That was her choice to file a civil suit.   The police are not involved because she never reported it to the police.  Depending upon what comes out some DA might take it upon themselves to look into it.

 

3) The entire thing is bizarre.
