    Anyone else notice how the mens actions that put them in a bad position, like in the Duke 5 case for instance, are NEVER questioned in the same manner a victim is?

     

    The Duke 5 hired strippers from an escort agency, consumed a bunch of alcohol and threw a party......but noone ever says "you deserved to be accused because you're an * and put yourself in a precarious position". 

     

    Its pure victim blaming that doesnt stand up to simple logic.

     

    Hacks in the media actually did do that in the Duke case.

    Ah, there it is. I was wondering how long it would take for this opinion to appear. Stop victim blaming. This is why women don't come out with rape accusations until much later. If this is true, you know full well why she didn't do anything.

     

    I bet people still will want to sign him.

    Gramz asked legitimate questions any logical person would want answered. It’s not like she asked how many sexual partners she’s had or how she dresses.

    He played better than I thought. I thought early on he looked tentative but in the 2nd half he looked pretty good and that comeback was Luckish. Vinny didn't help his cause at all.

    I thought the comeback was mostly due to the running game.  I didn’t mean it as a ding against JB.  It’s his first live game with Frank and Co, I didn’t expect him to light it up.

    Maybe true. 

     

    However, what he says is what many have said as well. And frankly, I think he’s dead on right on this one.

    I thought both JMV and Venturi sounded like a couple gossip columnists.

    Yes, there are some women taking advantage of the pendulum swing, and these men shouldn't be victimized by it.

     

    But at least we're moving away from the way it used to be.  I have a relative that dropped out of college because of something that happened to her at a frat party her freshmen year, and the complete lack of consequences for the frat guys that assaulted her.

     

    And it seems like there is more outrage at college kids getting falsely accused of this stuff than there is about men who rot in prison for murders they didn't commit, and are finally exonerated 30 years later by DNA evidence.  Where's the outrage at the people that lied to get those men convicted?  :dunno:

    It's not about some pendulum swing. It's about university kangaroo courts deciding the guilt and innocence in rape cases. That the dept of education pushed this is mind boggling. Well, it's the govt, so not totally shocking........

    You understand?

     

     

    I agree with that wholeheartedly. I also don't believe anyone's life should be ruined for any one action. 

     

    Btw, I wrote this earlier. I wonder who on this board was defending Jameis Winston when the woman accused him of sexual assault. 

    Comparing this to the Jameis Winston case is apple and oranges.

    Reading this thread makes me wonder if some of these guys were raised with a certain attitude toward women, or if they developed it after bad experiences with women.

     

    I understand there are women out there that cry wolf for whatever reason, but some of these guys seem to be painting all women with a very broad brush.

     

    Women have been getting the short end of the stick when it comes to this stuff for basically all of human history (rape didn't even used to be a crime, and still isn't in some parts of the world), but as soon as a few guys get falsely accused of some stuff, certain people are up in arms about it.

    It's because what's happening on college campuses is *ic.

    I don't think Stanford handles these situations well....

     

    But, frankly,  I don't think most colleges (all of them?)  handle these situations very well.

     

    Not getting law enforcement involved is a problem.

     

    Then again,  to argue against my own position,  local law enforcement got involved in the Jameis Winston situation (rape charge?)   And even they handled it poorly.    It read like one of thoe bad novels about small town justice in the South....     this is the way we do things here....   we have our own way of handling things.

     

    That was the tone in that story that I took away from that....

     

    I thought it read like how celebrities get treated in LA......

    The potential is there, now we just need to build the resume

    Maybe.....

     

    but I would argue his resume was exceeding that of manning until the injury.  And that was with Dumb & Dumber running the show. Imagine if Luck had Ballard and Frank from day one.

    I say Ballard, and that's not a knock on Luck. My thinking is comparative to Polian and Manning. In 2011, we sucked without Manning. I think Ballard is building a team that doesn't necessarily have to have a HOF QB to be competitive. I'm not saying we make the playoffs without Luck, but with a semi-competent back-up, I could still see us keeping it interesting. JMO

    Luck > Manning
