    Worst thing that could of happened. Some teams actually favor Lynch. If the Browns don't bite and the Vikes don't trade down, the Texans could be sitting pretty with A.P., god I hope this goes away fast.

    This should make our decision a little easier.

    Houston, again.
    Lynch and AP were running fairly close to each other regarding draft position ie. top 10. Where is this likely to drop Lynch to? I suspect that if it doesn't go away real quick, he drops to mid-late 1st. That is several to 10s of millions dollars of draft money lost if that happens.

    Good deal. I've been a little worried the Texans might go after this guy, but
    Big Bobby McNair will place the off-limits sign on him for sure with this revelation.
    And with or without him in the Draft, I never thought there was anyway AD would fall to #8.

    Okay, I think this quells any "take Lynch" scenarios. If it's running back, it's Peterson.

    It's coming out now cause he's about to get PAID!! Pure and simple, this is somebody's get rich quick scheme.

    Doesn't this scenario seem to happen every year to a potential top 10 draft pick?

    Easy there, champ. You don't know the facts of this case and neither do I. Last year Rucker from USC had these allegations and proved to have a history of sexual crimes. Sure, there's a chance this is simply extortion and there's also a chance this was a serious crime that shouldn't be written off as female chicanery.

    All true. So what ever happened to "innocent until proven guilty."

    No doubt.

    I just find the timing a bit...conveniant that's all. If he's guilt throw him in jail, if he's innocent I hope he sues her for damages, which could be substaninsal. The incident is already over a month old, but I give here credit for filing as soon as it happened, so there is a good chance something did happen.

    Nothing happened to it. Every team will investigate him on their own and reach conclusions... but he won't be a Texan.

    At any rate, the guy training Peterson and Lynch out in Arizona says they're testing about the same, speed wise. So if anybody was worried about Lynch being more of a home-run threat, I think AP's his equal there.

    ask those INNOCENT players on the Duke Lacrosse team if they were innocent until proven guilty. the court of public opinion had convicted them without substantial testimony from the "victim" and no physical evidence linking ANY of the players to that female. she and that district attorney should be brought up on several charges and be put in jail, disbarred, and be forced to pay restitution to those three INNOCENT men.

    ask calvin murphy about that also. some of his kids brought up some bogus allegations just because they didnt get enough of the pie. he was found INNOCENT of all charges when their stories were found to be a scheme to basically extort the money from somebody whose only real crime was that he couldnt keep little calvin in his pants.

    I agree totally. The problem here is I believe there should be a gag order on all trials until they are completed and then the media can report on it. I believe that is a fair compromise to the freedom of the press from the First Ammendment and the right to an impartial jury from the Sixth Ammendment. I know that the Sixth Ammendment also calls for a speedy and public trial. While some may argue that restricting the reporting before and during a trial violates this condition, I would not agree as reporters would still be allowed access to the trial during the entire process. The only difference would be in the timing of the press releases.
