    I’m sure they’ll be releasing an apology blog any second now!

    Hopefully, this puts an end to this but remember, this woman was raped.

    ...anyone else feel like digging up legit dirt and dragging Dave D's name thru the mud now :dunno: or am I just too vindictive?! I've recently learned that he manages at least one of his writers in the most unethical of ways :devilwink:

    Whether it should or shouldn't, this certainly won't be the end of it.

    I did not want to come to a firm conclusion when this story first broke and I'm still not comfortable saying I know what happened. The mob mentality did bother me, but that's the way of the world.

    While I don't condone this tactic, I've always wondered what someone like Canzano would do if he were falsely accused of something.

    The stance of: Your employer should distance themselves from you the minute you're accused of a crime and even if there are no charges or you are found innocent, society should limit/shame you for life... that's all well and good when writers are talking about someone else, but I'm guessing they'd quickly point out how their case is different if they were involved.

    I hope the people who created a fake story about being banned from there, will come here and say they went to Dave Deckard and asked him if he had anything to say about it.

    Reading that, the fact is a horrible thing happened. Chauncey said that he learned a lot from it. The Blazers PR person and Neil fucked up that news conference. Just say that due diligence had been done and you are confident in Chauncey's account and leave it at that. But Neil had to ham it up and say "thorough investigation" and now has been out investigated by a number of media outlets. The PR person didn't allow Chauncey to express himself and from what I've seen from Chauncey what he had to say would have helped the situation a lot. They didn't do him or themselves any favors but that's in the past now.

    Chauncey's the coach, I feel comfortable with that. Neil looks like a clown but now he just has to not fuck up this off season and do what it takes to keep Dame here which happily will mean our team moving closer to contending for a championship.

    That was all fake? Must’ve missed that. Wish I had enough free time and no life to do things like that

    I don't think anyone made up a story about being banned from BE.

    I know @Idog1976 didn't.

    It will never come. For them it has become a crusade. Short of the accuser coming out and saying she was wrong, they will not lay down their swords and spears.

    the sad thing is that their crusade was never about the victim and furthering the cause of assault victims. all they wanted was publicity and clicks.

    And that is really the sad thing! People just care about themselves and their publicity and are willing to do anything to become more famous...
