....shouldn't there actually be TWO investigations?.......the sexual assault one (which is a civil matter and may not have legs) and the alleged personal conduct violation of threatening Mayock with physical violence?..........

Should be, as I stated in a different thread, but this is the NFL we are talking about.

 

I don't get it, threaten your GM, NBD, go play for the champs...  WTF?!?

And why aren’t the other owners up in arms? I believe Brown and his agent orchestrated the whole thing. This could be a template for star players. 

I think it is called a free market.

Fact is Brown was free to sign with any team he wanted.

 

That he was officially released at 4:15 and signed by the Patriots within minutes makes the NFL look like a deer in headlights. But that's how it works.   

Here is a question. When a player is signed off the street, is is just between the agent and the team or is the NFL involved in some capacity before the signing? In other words when is the NFL made aware of the acquisition?

I wish Terry Bradshaw was the commissioner

I wish Neil Hamilton was the commissioner (Batman 60s TV series)!  One phone call and those dastardly sorts would receive ‘what for’!

All contracts have to be submitted to the league office for review. Not sure of the timing. 

 

Signing players off the street ? Sounds like an ESPN docudrama.

That may be true, but how would you feel if the Bills were bilked out of draft picks like the a Raiders have been? By your logic that would be like saying because most people aren’t criminals we should ignore crime.

I'm not sure you understand the concept of an analogy, as the one you provided doesn't even come close to representing my "logic.". You stated what Brown did (which is just an assumption on your part as I haven't seen any evidence) would become a template for othe players. I stated my belief is that it would be a very small percentage of players would actually do something like that.

 

I never said the ones that do should not be punished.

 

A more accurate analogy of my logic would be to say because someone got away with murder, people who have no propensity to act in that way would not start using what he or she did as a template to commit murder and get away with it.

Were the circumstances by which Brown became a free agent orchestrated? Does his behavior constitute fraud? Was this planned by he and Rosenhaus? When did Rosenhaus first reach out to the Patriots? If I’m any NFL owner not named Kraft, I’d like to know the answers to those questions.

If they are close he won't testify against AB

 

Hmmm a rookie in NFL and NFL wants to talk to him about something other than him. Yeah he is gonna sing. Doesn’t want to lie to employer or coverup for someone to your employer

I think, given the history of the Patriots, those are all legitimate questions and should be answered. However, as much as I despise the Patriots, I still want those answers before making any assumptions.

From what ABs stepfather said I wouldn't be 100% sure his family would cover for him

 

Still, it's NE so he'll be fine, they will be unstoppable and win the Superbowl and rub it in everyone's faces again.

 

But Mahomes will be MVP baby! 

 

Lol... I thought I couldn't hate NE any more than I already did... How can that team keep going on forever?!

Because there's no hard evidence that the Pats actually colluded with Brown to pull this off?   Aside from speculation about the speed of the contract settlement, there's nothing to link the Pats to Brown's actions in Oakland.

 

Moreover, I think a lot of teams simply aren't -- and never were -- interested in bringing in Brown because of his actions both in Pittsburgh last season and with Oakland.  Now, with the civil suit against Brown, they have even less interest in Brown --- and some are probably thinking that maybe Kraft and Belichick have finally outsmarted themselves if the NFL investigation leads to Brown being unable to play until the lawsuit is settled.

My understanding is AB and his stepdad hanent seen each other since he was 15.

I am more interested how AB ended up on the Patriots roster hours after  being waived. The whole situation smells

The latest episode is just a Bill Belichick diversion to me...

 

It's been said by some people in the media that AB was the smartest guy one room meaning he played the NFL & the Raiders both initially wanting to go to the Pats needing a way to get out of the Steelers camp so he made a ruckus in order to get out there & still got paid .

 

Then just doing the same thing with the Raiders not really wanting to be there causing as much of a disturbance as he could to get thrown out of there & knowing with the communication of his agent Rosehaus that the Pats were interested making enough noise to get tossed .

 

Now he's where he wanted to be all along . In theory i'm thinking they could be right & he just made the Steelers, Raiders & the NFL look like jack asses ! If he is a model team mate now then i would believe it to be true ...

As much as I would like to see AB fall or fail, this accuser sounds like a gold digger and I don’t see this going anywhere

Well, you're not an owner and given the spasmodic nature of your inquire, you need a serious time out.

How close ? If he’s willing to snitch on his cousin 

I doubt it. AB was on the sidelines for his OU games last year. I don’t think that they are some strange distant cousins.
