Reading between the lines re Deshaun Watson

I'm and man and all women are fucking liars.

One week after a scathing report from the New York Times accused Deshaun Watson of using at least 66 female massage therapists over a 17-month span, the Cleveland Browns’ quarterback continued to proclaim his innocence.

Fielding questions from reporters Tuesday morning in his first public comments since March, Watson struck the same tone that he has maintained since the accusations first surfaced.

“Like I’ve said, I’ve never assaulted anyone, never harassed anyone, never disrespected anyone, never forced anyone to do anything,” Watson said.

I know that first sentence is not what he "actually" said, but that's my biased takeaway.

1. I heard a commentator mention the number of masseuses

a while ago. That’s when it was at 24 not 66.

Sounds like big rich QB expected whatever HE wanted. I said that because a huge part of every pro athletes life is recovery. Recovering to play the next game. Especially in football. Even the NBA finals is spanned out - some for TV but also for recovery. As far as I know, once an athlete gets a team together (massage, physical training, dietitian) they stick with that team. 66?

5. According to the NYT story, 15 made accusations but did not file suits

Can't remember the other numbers.

7. The ex-players that have spoken out, like Jay Williams, have said that over their careers

they had ONE, maybe two massage therapists. NOT 66. He is a lying sack of shit, among other creepy things.

2. Not fair! Watson was officially investigated and cleared by Dee Haslam!



This is true. Dee Haslam, the owners wife, led the investigation.

Doesn't everybody believe her?

6. Yep! Dee cleared Watson! It was good enough for Dee ...

Just to be pellucid, BTW:

9. It's like the Kellen Winslow mess, but mercifully

not quite as horrific. I'll never understand how Watson has managed to avoid being indicted for multiple offenses.

10. Kellen Winslow II?

Last year he agreed to a plea deal sentencing him to 14 years in prison.

I never heard anything bad about Kellen Winslow, his father. We were in law school together for a while (I was in the day program and he was in the night program at the University of San Diego, though I think he finished somewhere else).

11. One reason. No videotape.

I still don't see how he has avoided criminal charges though.
