Agreed but the situation if true is very scary

Teams will find out by themselves so I don't see how the media holding back the name really helps

It's about keeping the name out of public eye, more than keeping it from teams IMO. Teams will probably get the name. If I were to guess they don't want the guy's name to be dragged through the mud 2 days before the draft in case the allegations are not substantiated. It's usually not the job of the media to do that, and this is why I find it weird that they are not releasing the name. The only reason I can think of is - they migh have doubts about the veracity of the claims. Of course, all of this is just speculation on my part.

But the teams are the ones who determine where player X goes in the draft

Doesn't matter to us though. We're not the ones giving him millions of dollars

Yes, but it will be the team's reputation on the line at draft night with all the media circulating stories about how team X has just drafted a rapist. Imagine the team knows with high level of certainty that the guy is innocent(through private investigators, through police work, etc). Would they still draft him where he's projected to go? Or would most teams just decide to save themselves the hastle and reputation hit and draft a player with clean image instead? Even if the guy gets cleared afterwards, a good portion of people would still think he did it and the team will still be the team that drafted a rapist.

The more interesting thing is to follow up who is represented by this agent - Kevin Spellacy? I don't know where to look up this info. If anyone knows, you are welcome to share.

 

Edit: my bad, this is his lawyer, not agent.

You could probably do the same thing by looking at who Spellacy is the lawyer for

How about a lawsuit? The whole thing seems shady, the article says that there are 3 witness who didn't see anything wrong and if he drops because an history without any kind of corroboration they can sue.

 

I think a lot of you guys overreacted for a history that has little to none truth behind.

 

This is a draft week's article, if something really happen then Rapoport would be reporting it, all the insiders won't sleep until the draft it's over they have their ears pretty open right now.

Accused doesn't mean guilty.  

 

No, but it doesn't mean innocent either. Just have to wait and see

Also the fact that the lawyer says he has 3 witnesses saying his player and the woman where never alone in the hotel makes me suspicious about it.  

 

Standard denials do not usually include specifics about witnesses or outright saying that the player was never alone with her.  The are usually very general and just say "this is a lie" blah blah blah.

 

When a lawyer is willing to say a number of witnesses and completely deny that the 2 where alone together to me it sounds like he's pretty sure of his case.

I don't believe anyone here is overreacting just discussing how this could devastating to all sides

That could also be lawyer speak

 

At this point it is hard to tell

The privileges of being famous

Even then, you don't see celebrities going unnamed in stories like this.  I haven't anyway.  I am just curious how this is even possible in the first place.  TMZ or one of those types of sites I would think could unearth that information.

Hypothetical.

 

The media releases the name.      The kid plummets in the draft.

 

Then the girl is found to either be lying,  or, she can't prove her case.      Or, he can prove his case to the satisfaction of law enforcement or a jury.

 

Then what?      The player has been damaged to the amount of millions of dollars.     Odds are she doesn't have that.      How he is to re-coup that loss?         

 

His name will be revealed perhaps by the end of the week, or maybe sometime next week.

 

This is not as cut and dry as it might appear.      Right now, he's only been accused,  he's not charged...
