I think you're being a little naive here. There's a lot of risk analysis that goes into these things. Civil trials aren't criminal, where they use black and white evidence. The burden of proof is significantly lower, and as noticed in the Depp/Heard trial, there can be outside influences that dictate the outcome.

If you have the money (which he does), regardless of your innocence, if there's a chance that you can be painted poorly, and your intentions/innocence can be questioned enough to convince even a few people of wrongdoing it can cost you significantly more. It will always make more sense to pay it to go away, which is why guys like Tony Buzbee exist.

I mean, if you have 66 cases of course it's better to settle if you have money. My point was, if there's was one case and I knew I was innocent I would fight it.

Guilty or innocent you shut up and only talk to your lawyer. A settlement is the easiest way past anything regardless of innocence. Civil court is only 51% to win. Even with the truth you can still end up behind compared to a settlement and an NDA.

Watson should have paid big early and shut up. No lawsuits and just rumors means dumb football fans move past it sooner. Being a public figure who relies on his image makes everything more complicated and difficult.

Yeah, it's often cheaper to settle as well. It doesn't mean someone is or isn't guilty. I just assumed that Browns signing bonus must have settled in his account and was now more open to the idea.

No argument from me. He should have settled early and honestly he probably would be behind this. Instead he let it drag out and now everyone hates him, haha.

Back to the depressing news,

Fuck man. 2 Raven died today. Jaylon Ferguson from a possible over dose and Tony Siragusa died overnight it seems. I'm praying there isn't a 3rd.

In this league QB is valued to just the dumbest most insane amount, forgot to mention 12 teams

I haven't had 2 good QBs in my whole tenure but did win a championship with Baker Mayfield and Drew Stanton, it is a very fun and rewarding league. Especially for people who follow the NFL draft

I joined because of JBond, and Deep Threat is in it along with some writers but I don't remember who anyone is

I would be shocked if Chris Carson ever plays again.

Ya if it were my team I would probably sell high on Winston and tank, but could get a 1st for him easily in this league

Burrow just posted a pro-abortion message on Instagram. Letís see Mahomes do that.

RBs don't get paid enough and they suffer the most abuse. It's going to take a generation of kids refusing the play the position and, even then, some still will if that is what it takes to get on the field.
