|It’s been only two weeks since a report emerged that Lions coach Matt Patricia had been indicted for aggravated sexual assault 22 years ago. With the alleged victim remaining silent in the aftermath of Patricia’s effort to “defend my honor and clear my name Lamar Miller Jersey ,” the story has quickly reached the point where there’s nothing more to say about it.
And then Dolphins owner Stephen Ross said something about it. Approached by Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press, the initial instinct from Ross seemed to be to say nothing. He probably should have acted fully on that instinct.
鈥淚 don鈥檛 really know,鈥?Ross said Wednesday, via Birkett. 鈥淭hey鈥檙e so thorough in all their search. It was unfortunate. Thank God he鈥檚 cleared and can [coach]. Hey Shaquil Barrett Jersey , that鈥檚 life today. Everybody鈥檚 looking at everything. You guys, you look under every leaf and you鈥檙e going to find something and it鈥檚 unfortunate for people. But I understand he never even slept with her.鈥?/p>
With Patricia avoiding 13 days ago a question from reporters as to whether he contends that he had consensual sex with the alleged victim, the last remark from Ross are eye opening. But it’s not clear whether Ross really knows what he’s talking about on the topic.
“I mean, I talked to our guys Lamarcus Joyner Jersey , our personnel people,” Ross said. “People know him. He鈥檚 a fabulous guy. It鈥檚 great for Detroit.”
Ross would probably admit that he said more than he should have said. Especially since the alleged victim quite possibly is paying close attention to the situation, contemplating whether to tell her story, more than two decades after the fact. Even if the allegation as originally made was false Marqise Lee Jersey , nothing stops her from making the false allegation again — especially since this time around she wouldn’t have to face a withering cross examination from a lawyer charged with keeping Patricia out of prison.
So the best move for everyone associated with the NFL is to say nothing. If this thing eventually blows up on Patrica and the Lions, it also will blow up on the league at large.
The NFL was invited to offer testimony before Congress during a hearing on sports betting that was scheduled for next Tuesday, but the hearing will not be taking place as planned.
David Purdum of ESPN.com reports that the House Judiciary Committee has postponed the hearing titled “Post-PASPA: An Examination of Sports Betting in America.” PASPA stands for the Professional and Amateur Sports Protection Act, which was struck down by the Supreme Court in a May ruling that made it possible for states previously barred from legalized sports betting to legalize it.
In a statement released after that ruling Joe Mixon Jersey , NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell said that the league would like Congress “to enact uniform standards” for states rather than have up to 50 different standards in the 50 different states.
Sports books have opened in New Jersey and Delaware since the Supreme Court ruling with other states expected to make similar moves in the near future.
