Deshaun Watson was with 19 civil complaints last I checked, at least one of them dubious in my opinion but no matter I reckon given those numbers, and a criminal complaint is in the works as well.
Compared to analogous matters concerning star players like Greg Hardy and Ray Rice about a decade ago that were not handled firmly by the league until made far more public by then tabloid and blog media, and after Antonio Brown, well the NFL no doubt will be taking I figure some action here of its own whatever the court verdicts.
The bottom line is Watson likely will be suspended at the very least, probably at least a season, before being allowed to return upon satisfaction of various conditions as was Antonio Brown.
And despite all the education and warnings over the years, including at rookie orientation any more for such players who get away with much as big men on campus, and the millions in expenses to many star players, are they getting it?
You have so many better alternatives than this sort of recurring activity when you are a young and rich man. I've been better off and I've been worse off over the years, but the youth does not come back.
I doubt very much Watson is the lone star player engaging in such antics, and much is amiss here beyond this case though I have no doubt the NFL will try to hang him out to dry as merely a lone wolf. Again.
Update 1 April No Fools
The count is up to 21 now! As I have stated, read the second account in the article and that's one I don't believe, given a lady who is a "massage therapist" from out of town consenting to meet in a hotel room with a man in another town, with the others with far higher merit for investigation.
But there is this now too in defence of Watson:
Although Watson currently has 21 lawsuits pending against him, there are nearly 20 massage therapists [it is actually 18] who have to decided to go on the record to voice their support for the beleaguered Texans quarterback. Hardin released the names of each therapist on March 31 and they range from a licensed physical therapist with a degree in Dynamic Neuromuscular Stabilization to one woman who once served as the as supervisor of Houston Methodist's massage program.
