Seeing as how college football is just around the corner, we here at Sparty and Friends thought it would be great to get an interview with a well-known college football writer. We feel as though we hit the jackpot when Tony Barnhart agreed to speak with us. Barnhart...
Some breaking news this morning out of the sports world it has been reported that Cleveland Browns quarterback Deshaun Watson has been suspended for six games in the 2022 and 2023 NFL seasons. That suspension came after Watson was accused of sexual assault and inappropriate conduct During massage sessions in civil lawsuits filed by 25 different women. Of those 25 lawsuits, one was dropped and 23 of the remaining 24 have been settled out of court, it has also been reported that Watson will not be fined. Watson signed a contract in March That will pay him 230 million dollars guaranteed over the next five years. The largest guaranteed contract in NFL history,
I think a lot of Cleveland browns fans would agree with me It’s just nothing short of extraordinary that this franchise with, I Would say an up-and-coming franchise, they’ve got some great players on this team but they would bet their future on this guy with all of the legal problems that he’s facing.
They went into this eyes wide open Watson of course, didn’t play last year as a member of the Texans with this legal matter looming over his head and the Browns traded for him anyway and gave him a record-breaking contract and he’s had a signing bonus of over $45 million that’s not impacted at all by the suspension. He gets to keep all of that and the six games seem remarkably light The chatter in the last few months, was that he was going to be suspended potentially for an entire season Now he’s only six games despite having been credibly accused by 25 different women. There are a lot of browns fans out there, really unhappy with this suspension And it also just looks like another moment of the NFL’s justice system being looked out of whack here. Remember Tom Brady got suspended four games for allegedly deflating footballs?
And just this past year, Atlanta Falcons wide receiver Calvin Ridley bet some money did some sports betting which like the NFL, like so many other professional leagues, is more and more embracing online sports betting, Ridley was suspended for an entire year over matters of a few $1000 and yet Watson gets six games for this. It’s I think a lot of Cleveland browns fans not very happy with this entire situation Not good for the credibility of the NFL coming up
