The browns traded 3 picks and spent $230mill to start Jacoby Brissett at QB. What a dumpster fire.

Brown is the color of poo.  Seems an apt mascot.

If I'm Baker Mayfield this morning I'm laughing so hard I might end up injuring myself.

I'm not Baker Mayfield, and I may end up doing it anyway. HAHAHAHAHAHARAPERAPERAPEHAHAHAHAHAHA

This is so farking NFL of the NFL. This should be easy, park Watson's ass on the exempt list until after all his cases are closed THEN do the suspension.

no matter what punishment is given out, defenders and haters will both be screaming that it's not enough or it's too harsh.

As long as he's punished.

And we can gripe about how long it took to punish him.

And punish the team that didn't need him and knew about these problems and still went out of their way to purchase his services.

And punish the system that took so long in getting around in punishing him in the first place.

Otherwise, I'm fine.

and his money is protected in the contract.  He only loses a million dollars if suspended a whole year.

Here's my question. he's obviously a serial predator.  Why on earth do you think he will just stop and not continue the behavior?  He was on the path to eventually raping some woman.  I doubt that desire just goes away when he gets his wrist slapped

Something else should be slapped. Hard and repeatedly.

The Browns are crappy for many reasons. One of them is that they anticipated exactly this and structured the contract so Watson will still get his money even if suspended for the whole 2022/3 season.

The trade was never really made for 2022.

Let's not forget that the Texans were able to draft Watson, by trading broke oswiller to the browns.

According to Cleveland fans, Roethlisberger is the ultimate sex offender, so Watson should be punished like they did Ben:  3 games per offense, lowered to 2 if Watson goes to counseling.

That would be 72 games, possibly as few as 48.

Hey Deshaun, see you in 2024 or so.

More like 66 women, so we should see him back in 7.8 seasons.

Mind you the Texans let him get some rub'n'tug action at their facilities and gave him NDAs for the women to sign so the org should get appropriate suspensions for that, so maybe two seasons forfeited?

Whoa whoa whoa there.

I love dunking on the Browns for this move, and if even 1/10th of the allegations are true, then Watson is a creepy, likely criminal person.

But let's not pretend that he was not several levels above someone like Brissett. Did you ever watch Watson play? The Texans were an epic fail overall but he was one hell of a bright spot as QB. Dynamic playmaker.

Ok, let's resume dragging him and the Browns through the mud. They all deserve it.

...and now I realize that Brissett is literally behind him on the depth chart. Didn't realize he was actually on the Browns, thought you were saying Watson was a figurative version of Brissett.

Actually I just read something where if he's suspended for this entire season his contract shifts a year so he gets nothing this year, gets a million NEXT year, and his actual duration under contract extends a year.  Dunno how true THAT is but I mean that's another year the Browns are stuck with him.

Does anyone know of any sports books taking odds on something happening to Brissett and Mayfield having to start for the Browns?  Because that would be something I'd put money on if someone was offering serious odds on it.

And they did it before trading Baker, immediately tanking his value as a trade piece, now everyone knows they cannot keep him on the team. Everyone knows they don't have to offer anything for a player who's going to be released anyway.

Plus, even if they wanted to keep him as a stopgap this year, there's no way Baker is going to report to the team again.

Just absolute idiocy all around.

He needs to invest some serious money to get a reliable source of hookers who can service his particular kink and be discreet about it. Based on the descriptions in the complaints it sounds like he has a very specific scenario in mind and that's what he wants. The part where a massage turns into a sex act is where his fantasy runs afoul of the other person's expectations and becomes a civil or criminal offense. Hookers aren't legal but at least the offense is solicitation and not assault.

Can the Browns be fined for tanking during the offseason?

Watson could easily have afforded discrete escort services who would have serviced a Masseuse Rub n Tug role play scenario.

The fact that he didn't shows that it isn't the sexual situation that gets him off.  He is a predator who gets off on sexually harassing legitimate sports therapists.  It's the power dynamic in the scenario, not the sex.  That's what he needs to fix.

Olympic Trolling Judge: Can the Browns be fined for tanking during the offseason?


They gave away their next three first round picks to the Texans so if they are tanking then it's in collusion with the Texans and both should be fined.

Either way, Steelers fans will be laughing, while Browns fans will point out our former quarterback only got four games, and this Steelers fan will agree it should've been longer and resulted in his going to Detroit.

I'm surprised punishment is even being considered by the league, they've never really taken sexual abuse seriously before.

Good thing the browns burned their bridges with Mayfield, otherwise they may have just had another mediocre season, instead of the impending dumpster fire.

I didnt see anything on the Bet Rivers app. I don't live in state but bet when passing through and the Browns are the only team that didn't have a wins or make playoffs bet. You could bet on them winning division, conference or SB. I was going to bet against them since historically that makes me money and while I get nervous betting on my fav eagles.

Watson actually does have odds on winning both MVP and Comeback player of the year. And stunningly, they are better than Baker for both categories. He isn't even a huge Longshot, like something near 30 to 1.
 
2022-06-26 2:02:44 PM  
I think they want to come to an agreement without an appeal because Watson hasn't been arrested, not charged with anything and all the accusers used that boob of a lawyer. On paper Watson has an argument for a reduced suspension.

It isn't the rich guys that make the decisions (or anyone they care about) who are going to get harassed, abused, assaulted, and/or raped.

Personally, the fact that the Browns structured Watson's contract to play the league - and the league is playing along - should anger every other team's executives.  Not because they didn't think of it first you cynical bastages, but because it is fricking wrong,

Since the contract was created for the express purpose of avoiding financial punishment to the detriment of the league, instead of suspending Watson the entire year, he should be suspended the first two games...

of every season of the contract. Duck that salary hit.

They did what all teams do, they structured the contract so it would fit into the salary cap.  All teams do that.  Even if all of this crap weren't happening, they still would've structured it that way.

The Browns have been throwing salary around left and right (how they still have money to throw around, I don't know, haven't been following close enough)... structuring it this way allows them to afford it.  This year, anyway.  Dunno how they'll afford everything next year when he has like a $50 million hit.

Does Madden have suspensions for specified or unspecified off the field conduct?

It was only in one version before the NCAA had EA take it out (somewhere 2006-2008 sounds right) IIRC but NCAA Football had what would usually amount to a few players on a team get suspended every year in Dynasty Mode. I want to say it was limited to academic improprieties and certainly nothing even vaguely criminal in nature.
