latest news at page 1:

    NFL commissioner Roger Goodell has called for a minimum one-year suspension to be handed to Deshaun Watson for alleged sexual misconduct that he termed as 'egregious' and 'predatory behavior'. Last week, the NFL appealed against the six-game ban that was handed down to the Cleveland Browns quarterback by an independent arbiter, Sue L. Robinson. The NFL exercised its collectively bargained right to file an appeal last Wednesday in the wake of the suspension by Robinson, a disciplinary officer appointed by the league and players' union.  Speaking Tuesday on why he wants Watson banned for a year, Goodell said: 'We've seen the evidence, she was very clear about the evidence, she reinforced the evidence. 'There were multiple violations that were egregious and it was predatory behavior.' The six-game ban ruling was labeled as a 'joke' across social media by critics who felt a six-game suspension was insufficient given the allegations against Watson.  NFL commissioner Roger Goodell has called for a minimum one-year suspension to be handed to Deshaun Watson of the Cleveland Browns The 26-year-old is accused of sexually assaulting and harassing...
    The contract the Browns gave Deshaun Watson, which seemed rigged to minimize his punishment, didn’t go over well with the rest of the NFL. There are a few things about the contract between Deshaun Watson and the Browns that didn’t sit right with people. He was given the second biggest contract in NFL history complete with the most guaranteed money ever despite being accused of sexual misconduct by no less than two dozen women. Moreover, the contract included language that prevented him from losing significant money if he were suspended, which was definitely an inevitability. Since the first year of the deal featured an untouchable signing bonus and a $1 million base salary, docking him game checks would hardly make a financial dent. Browns: Deshaun Watson contract has upset the rest of the NFLAccording to Peter King, that aspect of the deal ruffled feathers around the league: “One influential NFL person told me on this trip that it doesn’t sit well with the league or 31 other owners that the Browns rigged the Watson contract so that his suspension would...
    The NFLPA has filed its reply to the NFL's appeal of Deshaun Watson's six-game suspension.  The Cleveland Browns quarterback was handed the ban Monday by independent arbiter Sue L. Robinson over dozens of sexual misconduct allegations dating back to his time with the Houston Texans. The NFL exercised its collectively bargained right to file an appeal Wednesday in the wake of the suspension by Robinson, a disciplinary officer appointed by the league and players' union.  The 26-year-old quarterback is accused of sexually assaulting and harassing dozens of female massage therapists in the Houston area between 2019 and 2021, when he was a member of the Texans. The players' association had two days to respond to the appeal and submitted its reply Friday.   Under Article 46 of the collective bargaining agreement, commissioner Roger Goodell could have heard the appeal himself or appointed another arbiter - and that ruling by Goodell or his designee would be final and binding to all parties. However, Goodell will not personally hear the appeal and instead appointed former New Jersey attorney general, Peter C. Harvey Thursday.  Harvey...
    More than one year after the first civil lawsuit was filed against Deshaun Watson, independent arbiter Sue L. Robinson handed the Cleveland Browns quarterback a six-game suspension for the 2022 season.   The 26-year-old is accused of sexually assaulting and harassing dozens of female massage therapists in the Houston area between 2019 and 2021, when he was a member of the Texans.  The NFL exercised its collectively bargained right to file an appeal Wednesday in the wake of the suspension by Robinson, a disciplinary officer appointed by the league and players' union.

    NFL officials appealed a six-game suspension for Cleveland Browns quarterback Deshaun Watson, seeking a harsher punishment after a disciplinary officer ruled Watson violated the league's personal conduct policy. The appeal filed on Wednesday seeks an indefinite suspension of at least a year, an undisclosed monetary fine, and a promise to undergo treatment, according to ESPN, after former Judge Sue Robinson ruled that Watson violated the policy after allegations of sexual misconduct were levied against the football player. NFL PERSONALITIES FABRICATE A RACIAL CONTROVERSY OVER KYLER MURRAY'S CONTRACT "On Monday, Judge Sue L. Robinson, the independent Disciplinary Officer jointly appointed by the NFL and NFL Players Association, issued her ruling in the Personal Conduct Policy matter regarding Deshaun Watson," the league said in a statement. "Under the 2020 NFL-NFLPA collective bargaining agreement ('CBA'), the factual findings of the Disciplinary Officer are binding and may not be appealed. Judge Robinson found that Mr. Watson violated the NFL's personal-conduct policy on multiple occasions and suspended him for six games." Cleveland Browns quarterback Deshaun Watson takes part in...
    On Thursday, the National Football League issued an appeal on the six-game suspension of Cleveland Browns quarterback Deshaun Watson. Monday, an independent disciplinary officer of the NFL, Judge Sue L. Robinson issued the six-game suspension to Watson over a violation of the NFL’s personal-conduct policy.

Commissioner Roger Goodell will determine who will hear the appeal.” According to the NFL, “the league could seek additional games to add to Watson’s suspension, a player fine and/or player treatment.” Don Riddell, of CNN’s World Sport, joined Jake Tapper on his show to explain the appeal further and what happens next.

    The NFL has decided to appeal the six-game suspension Deshaun Watson received for sexual misconduct from the appointed disciplinary officer. As content as Deshaun Watson, the NFLPA and the Browns were with his six-game suspension, the NFL definitely is not. Disciplinary officer Sue L. Robinson found that Watson violated the NFL’s personal conduct policy by engaging in unwanted sexual behavior, calling the quarterback’s behavior predatory and barring him from seeing massage therapists from outside the Browns organization. Despite that, she went far below the punishment desired by the league by giving Watson a six-game suspension. The NFL is now appealing that decision, according to Ian Rapoport. Deshaun Watson update: NFL makes the right call on suspensionMake no mistake, the NFL is not on Watson’s side here. By appealing, the league is rejecting the six games handed down by Robinson with an eye on more significant punishment. The NFL and NFLPA brought in Robinson as an independent arbiter for Watson’s disciplinary hearing, but the appeal will put the ball back in the league’s court. Commissioner Roger Goodell could hear the appeal...
    (CNN)The attorney of Deshaun Watson's accusers says the NFL "does not care about the rights of women" following the Cleveland Browns quarterback's suspension for sexual misconduct allegations.Appearing on ESPN's "First Take," attorney Tony Buzbee attacked the investigation, saying he hopes the NFL will appeal the case, but his clients are angered and disappointed by the lenient suspension handed down by a disciplinary officer. "Don't expect the NFL to do anything heroic here," Buzbee said. Watson was suspended on Monday for six games without pay for violating the NFL's personal conduct policy in private meetings with massage therapists, according to a ruling by a retired federal judge jointly appointed by the NFL and the NFL Players Association.

    Mina Kimes didn’t hold back on the Deshaun Watson ruling, calling the arbiter’s decision to hand down a six-game suspension “utterly incoherent.” If you think Deshaun Watson got off lightly with a six-game suspension from disciplinary officer Sue L. Robinson, Mina Kimes is right there with you. The ESPN personality took Robinson to task for her decision on the length of the suspension for the Browns quarterback despite concluding that he had committed sexual assault. And she wasn’t the only one. Robinson, a former judge, released a 16-page report determining Watson violated the NFL’s personal conduct policy. Kimes says the punishment doesn’t fit the findings in that report.

    ESPN Analyst and host of The Pivot podcast, Ryan Clark, says there was no proof behind the allegations of sexual assault leading to Cleveland Brown quarterback Deshaun Watson’s six game suspension. On Monday, Watson was issued a suspension from six upcoming games for the 2022 season over violations of the NFL’s personal conduct policy. Watson has been accused of sexual assault and harassment and has settled 20 civil lawsuits against him. Speaking on a recent episode of ESPN’s Get Up, Clark said, “No matter how much we hate it, we don’t have proof that Dashaun Watson is guilty of what he’s being accused of.” “Everybody’s gonna draw from context clues and we’re gonna read the tea leaves and we’re gonna look into it and make our decisions as humans. And, as people from the outside, looking in with our perceptions, but there is no proof!” Clark said again. Speaking of judge Sue L. Robinson, the NFL’s new disciplinary officer, Clark said, “Sue L. Robinson is dealing with evidence. She’s trying to deal with truth. And she says, ‘Okay, I know...
    NFL disciplinary officer Sue L. Robinson’s explanation for recommending a six-game suspension for Deshaun Watson is not going over well. It was a lengthy wait for a disciplinary ruling to be reached regarding Cleveland Browns quarterback Deshaun Watson, who was accused by multiple women of sexual assault and misconduct during massage therapy sessions. NFL disciplinary officer and judge Sue L. Robinson reportedly recommended that Watson receive a six-game suspension without pay for violating the league’s personal conduct policy. As for the reasoning behind the decision, Robinson’s decision was released, where she concluded that “although this is the most significant punishment ever imposed on an NFL player for allegations of non-violent sexual conduct, Mr. Watson’s pattern of conduct is more egregious than any before reviewed by the NFL.” We recommend you read the full 16-page ruling, which you can view here, courtesy of Pro Football Talk.Judge describes reasoning behind six-game suspension recommendation for Deshaun WatsonRobinson also concludes that Watson “limit his massage therapy to Club-directed sessions and Club-approved massage therapists for the duration of his career,” and that he “have no...
    With at least a six-game suspension now given to him, how much money will Deshaun Watson lose? After a lengthy wait, Sue L. Robinson finally released her decision on whether and to what extent suspend Cleveland Browns quarterback Deshaun Watson Monday morning. He’s getting a six-game ban after more than two dozen known allegations of sexual misconduct attached to massages. The NFL can now appeal Robinson’s decision within the next three days. With earlier reports suggesting they wanted a much longer, indefinite suspension for Watson, and with commissioner Roger Goodell or a designee hearing said appeal, a longer suspension is definitely in play. When they gave Watson a fully guaranteed five-year, $230 million contract, the Browns structured the deal in such a way that a suspension wouldn’t cost him nearly as much as it could have this season. His $44.965 million signing bonus is not impacted by the suspension, and his $46 million salaries for 2023-2026 are also untouched by the ban. Under his previous contract, before the trade to the Browns, a six-game suspension would have cost Watson...
    That’s it? Six games? Quarterback Deshaun Watson settled claims by 23 women alleging sexual misconduct. The Houston Texans settled with 30 women for claims against Watson. And the first thought is he received a wrist-slap of a six-game suspension considering comparative penalties. The accompanying thought remains: Thank goodness the Miami Dolphins didn’t trade for Watson’s creepy story. Thanks all the lucky stars a couple of women held out from settling with him, or he would have been traded to the Dolphins last November, as Watson’s lawyer, Rusty Hardin, has said. What’s the saying about the deals you don’t make are the best ones? Cleveland’s daily conversation would be our disturbing mess. This upbeat Dolphins training camp would be dragged in mud of protests, debates, arguments and general morality wars. That’s not even getting into the past several months before Monday’s decision, when the Cleveland Rape Crisis Center said how the six-game suspension, “dangerously mirrors the flaws in our justice system and sends a grave message to our communities.” The NFL’s arbiter, former judge Sue L. Robinson, explained that Watson’s “pattern...
