2. I know this sounds really really horrible ...

And I sure as hell would NOT have minded in the least if the guy had been banned from the NFL, or even prosecuted in some of these instances.

But ... what's being described as sexual assault is along the lines of grazing a massage therapists leg with his hand and saying 'I'll give you $250 if you would finish me off' type of thing.

Distasteful, yes. And the sheer volume of women involved he tried to exploit in this way clearly indicates a certain pathology, one which is unlikely to ever be tamed in this individual through force of will.

I'm only saying this because when you read a story worded like this, it makes your head explode as to how could he POSSIBLY be let back into the league?

It's because no particular incident was anything all that egregious in nature. Watson was not attacking people, he was soliciting prostitution.

And also ... almost certainly a lack of physical/forensic evidence.
