    Of course I’d hold Watson accountable if he really did what was alleged. But he says these claims baseless. I think the whole thing is shady, that Watson ordered a home massage, this “service” was performed in a provocative manner, Watson was confused and thought this might be an escort type arrangement etc..... and that is purely my speculation based off my perception of “home massages”.

    the truth of the incidents lies somewhere between what they are alleging and what Watson is stating. It will get sorted out as valid or not if it ever makes it to a real courtroom. But Watson is a public figure. And damages occur immediately to public figures in the court of public opinion. So it likely gets settled.

    now consider that, in addition to Watson’s recent issues with the Texans organization, the proximity of the plaintiffs attorney to Texans ownership, and the use of social media to divulge these claims to the public. It all wreaks of an old time beaver trap “smear” tactic to coerce DW into paying up to make it go away and/or reaching some other undisclosed agreement satisfactory to the interested parties driving these allegations. DW has a good reputation outside of these allegations. At this point, I find him more credible than “home masseuses”. And again- I’m not a DW fan. What happens I really don’t care. I just don’t like to see anybody get worked over by sleazy old school-coercive tactics which is what this appears as to me.

    I don't know if these allegations are true or not but why did it take this long to come out? And if Watsons name is going to be mentioned they should name the women in the cases. IF he is innocent why should his name be dragged through the mud and they hide?

    One of them is willing to fly from Atlanta to Houston for a massage? Come on....

    That's what trips me out too. All of this now, and a masseuse at that? And out of nowhere he's like I wanna hire you AND fly you to Houston to massage my groin.....what a s### storm the new head coach walked into with his mouth open.

    One incident from Mar 2020, and the other in Nov or Dec 2020? When did Watson sign his mega deal? Lol

    And Watson has enough money to hire a proffesional massage therapist full time. Now their are text messages of him supposedly apologizing.

    Watson went from 1 accuser to 6 overnight. Big Ben got 4 games in 2010 for 1 that was settled and 1 that was recanted and dropped.

    This guy is never playing for Houston again, and might not play for another team for quite awhile.

    I was in DW’s camp when this started but 6 women claiming sexual assault is pretty alarming. Will be interesting to see how this plays out.

    The 2 lawyers involved are the 2 most prolific lawyers in Houston. If it goes to court it’ll be a showdown for sure.

    In this case it may be shady... But at home massages are a thing. I know there are some that offer such a service in my small hometown in TN...so it can't be that uncommon.

    Again, for a pro athlete to have someone come in to his home for a massage seems like it would be a very common thing. Now, flying random no-name masseuse from all over the country does seem pretty sketchy. Plus all of the accusations keep piling up, so maybe there is fire with the smoke here.

    My only point was that people get massages at home all the time. It's not uncommon or necessarily a shady thing to happen.

    Ya'll talk about home massage being shady... what about a pro qb with millions upon millions that has some fetish with massage therapists?

    Why not go get a girlfriend or hire a real escort service....
