Attorney Gloria Allred says she represents a woman who was raped by an NFL player last weekend, and who then played a game. The player has not been identified, but Allred says she’ll be watching to see if he plays today.

I will be watching [Sunday] to see whether or not the accused player is allowed to play for his team for a second week in a row while rape allegations are pending,” Allred told the Daily News on Saturday.

She sent Goodell a letter Friday, asking whether he knew a rape suspect was allowed to play in a Sept. 21 game. Allred hasn’t named the player or team but noted a “criminal investigation is pending.”[su_csky_ad]

    Well, put-up or shut-up. Why the secrecy? This will not necessary; help the victim.

      maybe the victim wants it this way? Not all want their fear and anger splashed everywhere

        I doubt if the player is going to fight in private. The choice is not going to be hers.

    So being accused of something means you are guilty ? If she is saying he shouldn’t be playing then the politician that are accused of things should not be in office .

      would you want a accused rapist to be allowed to be free in the community or pretend nothing happened if it was a loved one of yours making the accusation?

        but, he is only accused right? has he been arrested?

        • tracey marie September 28th, 2014 at 4:32 pm

          True, seems to be a delay in charging him. I do believe the team is aware of the charges made and is not making a wise decision in playing him.

          • whatthe46 September 28th, 2014 at 6:18 pm

            wait. you said seems to be a delay. yet, you say the team is aware. which is it?

          • tracey marie September 28th, 2014 at 7:21 pm

            the team does not charge him, the law does. That is what I am saying, I understand your assertion but as a woman I just can’t agree

          • whatthe46 September 28th, 2014 at 8:00 pm

            that’s what i was asking or referring to. why is the police not charging him? what is the delay? you said the team is aware of the charges made. that’s where i am confused by your post. if there are charges has he been arrested? i don’t know the circumstances of this case at all.

            The papers are unclear, the victim is(I think/ wavering because of the press and does not want to be attacked…buy then again she hired Allred, she is known for putting everything in the press.

          • whatthe46 September 28th, 2014 at 8:52 pm

            “…she hired Allred…” exactly.

        If it was rape ? shouldn’t he be posting bond instead of playing football

      • Teddy Simon September 29th, 2014 at 11:42 am

        We have a thing called the constitution if you don’t like it get it changed , or move , sorry , but I could accuse you of something so should that mean you should sit in jail till you go to court , because we all know no woman has falsely accused a man for rape right .

      • Teddy Simon October 9th, 2014 at 11:03 am

        Thats thee way the law is written ,

        • tracey marie October 10th, 2014 at 1:48 pm

          that was not an answer to my question
