Boys.... it is what it is.... this isn't a new thing, it's a reoccurring problem in our society.

Is it the [inappropriate/removed] athlete with an ego that can't take "no" for an answer?

Is it the scorned woman looking to make a quick buck or get revenge by making a public accusation?

We all know an accusation in and of itself can destroy someone's reputation and that isn't explicit to Conley. Even if he were totally cleared, this will effect his image for a long time.

The witnesses don't really mean anything either imo - they're all his entourage so of course they're going to support his innocence.

If I had to guess I'd say our decision to draft him was hardly based on witness testimony or facts - because there are very little (if any) tangible facts. It's all verbatim and he-said-she-said.

IMO our decision to draft him was probably based on a few things:

1. His track record is flawless - this is a total outlier for him not a theme.

2. Interviews with him - we probably believed in him as a person and his innocence.

3. The liklihood of criminal repercussions against him are slim. The fact that at least some of it was consensual makes it difficult to prove that anything subsequent was not consensual.
He's innocent until proven guilty. The burden of proof is on her to prove he's guilty, not on him to prove his innocence. With lack of hard evidence to prove his guilt, the assumption is he's innocent. Hard evidence in this case is going to be difficult if even possible to obtain on her end.

We probably made a business decision that his talent and character were enough to take on his baggage. But that's just my opinion.


You nailed it and this is exactly why he was drafted by the Raiders. The burden of proof is on her to her to prove that he is guilty. She stands a very slim chance of proving this in a court of law.

GC's track record is flawless, interviewed well and was the consummate teammate at OSU. I am not saying that he is innocent or guilty but the odds of these charges sticking are very small and the Raiders knew this.

Has anybody heard any further word on Conley's involvement with the POLICE? It's been over 6 weeks. Or is no news good news?

Right now they are very good as nothing is preventing it. As soon as we know if the state is going to file charges or not then there will be another variable to look at when determining odds.

Plus there is a video showing the girl already lied about how she met Conley.
