    If it’s the same text messages I read online earlier, he likely didn’t go into detail because he couldn’t understand what he read. I don’t even know what language it is.

    To me, it feels like the first question that needs to be asked is whether this woman pursued criminal charges. If she did, that suggests that the prosecutor didn't think there was enough evidence to convict Brown. Based on what I've read tonight, it sounds like she didn't, or else she would have terminated her "relationship" with Brown earlier.

    The burden of proof is lower in civil cases. It sounds like there could be evidence on both sides, so it's a he said, she said situation. It's likely that if there's enough evidence, this will be settled out of court.

    We know that Goodell can do whatever he wants, but he usually doesn't do anything immediately unless there's significant (i.e. video) evidence. That's because he cares more about the PR ****storm than anything else. This may be a distraction for Brown throughout the season, or at least as long as the court case lasts, but I doubt anything disciplinary happens this year. Patriots won't cut him unless there's actual criminal charges.

    Definitely fell way too far down the rabbit hole on this one, but I decided to read the court filing. From what I can tell, the evidence is basically those emails, her telling a number of people, and a polygraph test.

    She never went to the police, and given the evidence presented in the filing, it's unlikely they'd be able to convict anyway.

    I'm fairly certain that polygraphs aren't admissible in court, unless both sides agree, which they wouldn't in this case. I'm sure both sides would have witnesses, so it would come down to who's more believable. Seems to me the emails are key.

    Her story is certainly compelling, but it's just one side. Based on Brown's lawyer's statement, it sounds like they have evidence of her asking for money from him in the past, which wouldn't be a great look for her. I would bet it will depend on how good each side was at keeping all communication between the two.

    I know we live in a very sensitive climate to anything around sexual assault, and that we have to believe women who come forward and let them tell their stories.

    But I'm just gonna say it, this is so obviously fake. Nothing in the story adds up and it doesn't pass the common sense test.

    So someone on Reddit did some research, and I guess the website for the gym looks like a fake, and the address listed doesn't exist (checked this myself, and it appears to be true). Supposedly the gym shut down last year, but I haven't been able to find anything about that myself.

    Not to say that that means that the allegations aren't true, but something certainly doesn't seem right here.

    There really is no right way to go about this. Brown is innocent until proven guilty. If he did it, he should be put in jail and throw away the key. If she’s extorting him and lying she should go to jail.

    However as of right now Brown is innocent until proven guilty and should be allowed to maintain his job until further investigation results in more information.

    From what I read so far this seems like its all fake. From what I read she got a 1.6M investment from him but already owed the IRS 50,000 then turned around and used 300,000 of the money he sent her to buy property which she already owned.

    over the last few years I have grown tired of Patriots fans. the fanbase has grown annoyingly cocky. at least the majority of the younger generations have. Guess they didnt watch the Pats in the 90s.

    So it sounds like the Pats were blindsided by this news. Today should be interesting to say the least.

    They do win too much. Dan Shaunessy's of the world still arent used to that yet. Before Brady losing was a very comfortable culture for many. You get used to it
