there is one rule and only one rule - stand up for the stupid song.

Paying someone for consensual sex work and then getting blackmailed by the cops for it isn't even remotely in the same category as rape, domestic violence or murder.

Thank You Black Jesus!: there is one rule and only one rule - stand up for the stupid song.


The NFL even overlooks that rule if you've got a pretty-boy, clean-cut white star quarterback leading the way:

Oh, this is the talking point Browns fans are going with? Good luck!

I'm a Lions fan. What do the Browns have to do with Kraft getting blackmailed by the cops after paying for consensual sex work?

$230 million fully guaranteed. He didn't even play last season.

Yeah, it's difficult to connect them all when there are so many different ones.

Doesn't even matter, the article is about the NFL supposedly holding players accountable for their personal conduct, not the owners.  Kraft is irrelevant to the discussion.

Also Michael Vick.

FTA: "The NFL says it holds players to account for their personal conduct. Is Deshaun Watson's case shattering that illusion?"

The headline: "No, Ben Roethlisberger, Ray Lewis, Kareem Hunt, and Robert Kraft already did that."

Me, off to check Robert Kraft's NFL stats as a player...

Obviously, the NFL never holds the owners accountable.

Here's something from 2016:

static.nfl.com/static/content/public/photo/2017/08/11/0ap3000000828506.pdf

Of the laughable paragraphs, the first:

It is a privilege to be part of the National Football League. Everyone who is part of the league must refrain from "conduct detrimental to the integrity of and public confidence in" the NFL. This includes owners, coaches, players, other team employees, game officials, and employees of the league office, NFL Films, NFL Network, or any other NFL business. :

And on page six, this howler:

Ownership and club or league management have traditionally been held to a higher standard and will be subject to more significant discipline when violations of the Personal Conduct Policy occur.

And since Kraft went to an illegal brothel where the girls were being trafficked and forced to perform, he counts.  Suck it Patriots fans.

If it is in the Fark headline, it's fair game. If we could only discuss what we read in the actual articles, fark threads would be really short.

Ray Lewis did something other than be present when something bad happened?
 
2022-05-26 2:29:28 PM  
talent trumps trouble.  yeah sure, depending on the amount of trouble.

when the vikings picked up randy moss a friend of mine was super excited.  i told him he'd rue the day his time made that decision.  he did.   later when someone told me the vikings trade moss i thought "who would take him? wait, must be the raiders."

Atomic Jonb: where the girls were being trafficked


yeah this wasn't actually true. as usual, it was just what the police told the public to justify harassing sex workers. no one got charged with anything that wasn't related to simple prostitution

Destroying evidence of a murder is illegal.

IlGreven: Also Michael Vick.


Vick lost two full seasons while in federal prison.  That's the closest any of these players got to an appropriate punishment.

if these guys were plumbers would you say they didn't deserve to go to work? if a person's not in jail they should be able to make a living. let the legal system do its thing.

Still, when you have an opportunity to possibly be the third best team in your division, you can't be ethical too.

Not defending the cops in that case but calling consensual can be tricky question when that industry is full of immigrants forced into that work to pay off their debt for getting into the country or some other means control.

If these guys were plumbers rather than NFL-types, they likely wouldn't have the means or the attorneys to post bail, so they'd be sitting in jail. The US legal system is rigged in the favor of the wealthy - but then I suspect you knew that.

I think he was the only one in the list charged; am I wrong?

Never mind that the Hunt situation wasn't domestic violence

let's change it to 'average joe' to avoid insulting the plumbers...who are all fine people. Big Ben was accused with no physical evidence and never charged. So an average joe isn't getting suspended from his job for that. Kareem Hunt, kicked a girl, but did no real physical damage to her, and was not charged with a crime. So, again, no worries for the average joe. Robert Kraft paid for a rub and a tug, was charged, but then the charges were dropped...average joes do that all the time. Ray Lewis...ok, you got me on Ray Lewis...but I think you get what i'm saying.
