I'm not sure what good that will do him unless phase 2 of his plan involves quarterbacking the Steelers to a Superbowl.

I saw the Pittsburgh in the headline and my brain immediately misread Cosby and wondered what Sid did.

Of course he wants Pittsburgh....they're a bunch of Rapistberger supporters.

He's hoping they misread his name as Crosby and all show up demanding he never be penalized.

Not so much 2017. There is a not great pic that turns up at the top of the search I will spare you all from.  I think it might be a bit of a one off, there many more recent pics that are fine, but 30 yrs is 30 yrs...

I would really love to know how someone proves beyond a reasonable doubt a crime without physical evidence over 10 years ago....   Do I think Bill was taking advantage of young women?   Yeap..... Do I think he was using game and drugs to do so.   Yeap.....  Do I think they were willing? Yeap.....   So the question becomes were they competent to consent?   Which is tough to prove with next day reporting and a toxicology screen.   Based on 10 year + old recollection and you are essentially just having a publicly funded character assassination, that does nothing but pay attorneys and sell tabloids.

Ben Crosby would never be convicted of rape in Western PA. Now that the self depreciating joke has been said...

WTF are his half ass velveeta and steak-umm loving lawyers thinking? They claim it's a worldwide case, but obviously the world stops where Amish country starts, according the them. What a bunch of fark tards. Go watch Rocky 5 and biatch about it not winning an Oscar.

Your otherwise good points on shakey evidence are marred by suggesting willing women need to be drugged. You think a woman who expresses interest would agree knowing a requirment is being being knocked out first, reduced to an orifice with no control? That's clearly rape.

But then the Steelers forced those women to cheer for them against their will, knowing that they really wanted to despite what they asserted? No sympathy - if they didn't want that to happen they really shouldn't have worn that Steeper garb

Fairly certain that's not what they meant. I took it as they consented but that drugs were used basically nullifying that consent. But also that all of it can only be a probability and not absolute after so much time has passed

It is a he said, she said case that drugs were used or that the sex acts weren't consensual. That isn't to say you can't make a case, but the standard a jury uses is beyond a reasonable doubt. It is hard not to have reasonable doubt in a case that old and that circumstantial. I certainly think that Cosby did it, I just don't think a jury can find him guilty if they are applying the law as instructed. However a jury can do whatever they want once they are deliberating.

Is there anyone on the planet who hates another human more than Bill Cosby hates Hannibal Burress?  (I mean, other than the women who Cosby raped hating him, of course.)

Here's Bill Cosby, living large, free, and easy.  Running roughshod over women for decades.  YEARS ago he admits in the deposition to drugging women and having sex, uh, consensual, wink-wink.  And through it all, Cosby is the beloved patriarch, fatherly figure to millions, sage fount of advice for generations.  Then here comes Burress, a nobody.  One of a million forgettable comedians.  Until he calls out Cosby.  And not even directly for the rapes, but more so Cosby's hypocrisy.  And suddenly, avalanche.

So, I often wonder in ranking his regrets, does Cosby put "don't lecture black youth" highest?  Or does he rank "not killing young Hannibal Burress" highest?  (I'm presuming that if you've done it dozens of times, "don't rape people" really can't be a regret.)

Goddam it I am sick of this shiat. NO HE DIDN'T. Read the farking transcript. He admitted to procuring drugs, and he admitted they were for sex. He Did NOT admit to feeding the drugs to women without consent.

And, for all you assholes who don't know, there's a big difference between being a Cosby apologist (which I am not) and not wanting to see more false bullcrap being spread.
