    Lions’ Patricia indicted, not tried in ’96 sex assault

    I haven't seen anything on it in over a week. Nowhere to be found on SI.com front page anymore, and even a Google search of his name shows nothing newer than May 12th on this story.

    Gun Legislation, Crime and Events

    This thread needs less calls to action, and more thoughts and prayers. Let's not forget the cycle now!! We *almost* forgot to let the crickets chirp between Parkland and this one, but there might have been one in there.

    Lions’ Patricia indicted, not tried in ’96 sex assault

    If we are still using SI.com as our representation of the spotlight, it takes quite a scroll to find any mention of this story now, and it's the same story that's been up for a couple days.

    Lions’ Patricia indicted, not tried in ’96 sex assault

    Just got a chance to fully delve into this story after hearing it yesterday. I have a serious problem with this quote from the article, "The woman who identified Patricia and Dietrich to police as the perpetrators did not respond to multiple attempts to contact her over several weeks." That is not #MeToo. That is #YouToo. The #MeToo movement was and has been fantastic in many, many regards. It was long overdue, and is a great step in the direction of actual empowerment and equality in a country that has been putting on a false façade for over 100 years. But it isn't right for reporters to go knocking on doors and entering the email accounts of women 22 years later. Patricia is in the news. If she wanted her story known, she would tell you. Is Patricia a creep? The only people who really truly know that are the three people who were in that room. When you have to list six people who have no recollection of an indictment that occurred 22 years ago, you're grasping for straws. I hope my comments are not misconstrued, because I am behind every woman that comes forward, and I am an ardent supporter of the free press. If a woman came forward with accusations against Patricia, that is something that simply goes beyond football, and I would want the claims investigated, to whatever degree is possible. If Patricia then attempted to silence the reporters who told her story, I would want them to work twice as hard and twice as long towards the truth. But that's not what's here. What's here is a 22-year old story that is forcibly opening 22-year old scabs for a woman, whether that's in a false accusation, a rape, or anything in between. What's here is a 22-year old story damaging the professional reputation of what otherwise appears to be a standup husband and father.

    2018 draft: Statement to JBC?

    If they wanted to “call out” JBC, they would have fired him. They recognized they didn’t have the personnel necessary to utilize any sort of effective run game, and have attempted to remedy that.

    Detroit Lions 2018 Free Agency

    Antonio Gates, Marcedes Lewis, and Julius Thomas are still available if the Lions look to free agency for another tight end. All could be had for pretty cheap I would think.

    Was thinking along similar lines wrt the FB/TE situation. I could see Gates signing a one year deal. Brings veteran leadership, and he's still got a little bit of something in the tank.

    I see no reason they won't be competing with GB and MIN for the division title.They went 9-7 last year, you think they got significantly worse?

    If the Lions botch their 7th round selection I'm declaring the season lost and getting on the tank-for-draft-position train.

    I'm not mad about any of the picks, so can I be mad that there are two threads for one draft instead?

    Interesting that Schefter named Walker as a corner rather than a safety.
