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

 

I said overreacting because the article is a click bait no real info just a lot of speculation, look the accusation was made 9th April, the accusation is 2 weeks old with no charge, the offices arrived at the "crime scene" the same day and there aren't charges.

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.

they could find out really really easily.  Especially if a police report was taken(assuming it was reported to the police).  Anyone one of us could honestly if you know the laws

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...

 

Happened to Collins just 2 years ago

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.

It really depends on the station/paper/website and/or reporter breaking the story

Unless it falls under malicious prosecution (that lawsuit would be against the police) or it turns out that she fabricated the story (lawsuit against her under defamation/slander) he woudln't really be able to do much.  Even if he could prove that she did lie, damages would be hard to assess because there's no actual proof he would have been drafted in the top 15 or whatever.  He'd recover some money, but i doubt it would be millions - and even if it were, its doubtful she'd ever pay the whole amount.

It's really sad in this day and age that you have to basically avoid everyone before the draft.  It's like if these guys dont' lock themselves in a room for 3 months, they face a threat these kinds of accusations.  Maybe he did it, maybe he didn't.  It sounds like a shaky accusation already.  But still, this kind of thing wouldn't happen if you basically stayed away from any activities and remained in private for 3 months - unreasonable to say the least.

Of course it's the guy I freaking wanted 

He's gonna drop a lot, now there's gonna be a lot of private investigators around Cleveland trying to figure out the whole situation, there's gonna be a team that is gonna gamble after the 4th (i'm seeing you KC).

Ohio State CB Gareon Conley has been accused of rape by a Cleveland woman, but adamantly denies the allegations.

Conley's agent has called the claims "ludicrous and ridiculous," and says they were made out of spite. Taken to a local hospital following the alleged incident, the woman refused to speak with police. No charges have been filed, and Conley has yet to speak with police. Conley has been considered a sure-fire first-rounder, and perhaps even a top-10 pick. With so little time between now and Thursday, the incident will affect Conley's draft stock, regardless of whether or not it's true.

At this point it looks like the rape kit will be the key factor.

 

Conley is not claiming that they had consensual sex.     He's claiming that did NOT have sex at all.

 

So if the rape kit contains his DNA,  then he's in big trouble.  

 

But if the rape kit does NOT contain his DNA,   then she's in big trouble for making a false report.

 

Will the answer be known before Thursday?

Story seems kind of stupid imo

Yeah, honestly, he could clear this up simply by taking a DNA swab, compare that to the rape kit and within a few hours, we'd know at least whether or not they had sex.  Hospital staff are required to do a rape kit anytime a female reports it, they will take photos, swabs of the region, even if there's no sign of sexual intercourse. The fact it's still pending with the police department is a cause for concern for his story.  This means they found something to send off for DNA and other tests, which can take 6 weeks or more. If they didnt find any bodily fluid, then the test would have been back already.

depends solely on how much pressure is applied to the Medical examiner and what the case load is, but most likely, it wont be back before Thursday.  see my above post.

So I guess we know who it is.  

 

But the woman refused to speak to police? 

 

Honestly it sounds like a woman who's upset at him for something and has found a way to hurt him.

 

I mean think about it, if you don't speak with police and file a report then there is no crime you can be charged with for lying.  

 

But at the same time since you went to a hospital and made the allegation then that stuff is now out there right before the draft which might make him drop significantly.

You could ask McNary, although I really doubt it cost him millions.

This is Collins all over again for better or for worse. There's no way this all gets cleared up in 2 days by the draft, so I think he goes undrafted. Then IF he gets cleared of the charges he'll get to pick what team he wants to go to.

The accusation and rape kit were made on 9th April , 2 weeks and no charges , it seems that the average time for a DNA test it's around 72 hrs let's triple it , that's 9 days.

Not if there is not a sample to match

TMZ added more to their story. She got invited in, declined to hook up so was just chilling, his two friends told police she was just mad bc he kicked her out of the room (assuming bc she wouldn't give in). She called 911 and said her side but then refused to give an interview and just went home because she had been "stripped of her dignity in minutes". Hasn't pressed charges or anything since.

This stuff happens every draft where just a few days before the draft, some big allegation is reported about a high draft pick. It's coming down to the need to have these athletes requiring a signed consent form to have sex or sex like acts before moving forward. If it's found true, he deserves to be dealt with by the law, if found to be false, the woman accusing rape needs severely punished equally.

PFT reporting that the team that was going to select him in the first will pass on him if this is not resolved, which it most likely will not be due to Conley saying he will give an interview with police after the draft.

    • Not really. The exception doesn't disprove the rule.   Some guys have good years coming off ACL injury. Most don't. A lot of them have various setbacks within the first 12-18 months after injury. And because the NFL season is so short, it's hard for most players to come back less than a year after injury and play at a high level for an entire season.   And even without any setbacks, you're still prioritizing the rehab of the injured leg, and the rest of your conditioning and personal training is going to suffer. Many of them can't participate in the offseason program, or training camp. For some guys, it's not a big deal. For most guys, that first year isn't played at 100%. And while the procedure and rehab is way better than it used to be, some guys NEVER get back to their previous level of performance.   As a team builder, I wouldn't count on a guy who tore his ACL being able to perform at a high level in less than 12 months.
    • I'm a TY fan but this point makes no sense as a defense of TY. Of course he still takes the other teams #1 CB, hes still a threat, but he's living off of his reputation this year. Also, taking a teams #1 CB isn't good enough, if you're supposed to be a #1 WR you gotta beat them at least a handful of times too, not be shut out for multiple weeks.   You know how dumb a DC would look if he lined up his #3 CB on Hilton and his #1 CB on a Pascal? lool
    • I think to really excel in pass defense , we need to get Turay back and he needs to stay healthy. When Leornard returns , we will have 2 really good LB's in pass coverage. We need the LB's to do a little better job of play recognition and get into their drops. Then we can better defend all those quick passes Jack and Cinn succeeded with. Leonard is great and Okereke is also going to be outstanding in pass coverage. The DB;s are IMO good enough .
    • What @Superman said -- he was putting his XP's perfectly down the middle.  Not really sure if his power increased or not, but his accuracy was insane.  I'd like to see one of those 'ghost' videos they do w/ bowlers to see how close each one of his kicks were to the others, to me it seemed like every kick hit the net directly in the middle (between the uprights), but I'd like to see if they were all hitting the same height on the net.     Yes, I think it's pretty inevitable that our defensive ranking will decline as we play better offenses.     Aside from being interested to see how our passing D does against Stafford, Jackson, Rogers, Big Ben, Carr and Watson -- I'm a bit nervous about how our D will hold up against the run with Derek Henry.  Additionally, with the lack of blitz, it seemed like our DL can struggle with QBs who can get outside the pocket (ala Baker Mayfield) -- so I'll be interested to see how 'Flus game plans against Lamar Jackson who is, IMO, a much more mobile QB than Baker.
    • I assumed he wouldn't play this year. Or if he did, it would be the second half of the season. Without Hooker getting hurt, Blackmon might not have played this much, but he doesn't look like he's coming off a severe injury. He looks really good. He's made some mistakes in coverage, but his instincts appear to be serving him really well.
