Default Marshall on Outside the Lines

If anyone is curious. Had a whole piece on Rasheedah Watley, including her parents and allegations that the organization contacted her to "keep her quiet" about the Marshall stuff. She seems genuine, but I have to wonder about anyone whose first thought after being beaten up is "get money."

I think they re-air this program later in the week as well if you miss it this morning.

They did an interview with Bmarsh and Bob Lee this morning. Brandon did a good job of answering the questions. I obviously know he isn't a saint in this whole thing, but neither is she. He came off well, and answered the questions and pointed to the facts, nice job Brandon.

I love Brandon the player and hope he gets his crap together, but - what a dumbass!

In another year he can cash in, and he might blow it all by slapping girls around.

Get your crap together, Brandon. We're counting on you...

isn't it blackmail or extortion when someone says give me $100,000 and I won't show up for the hearing?

If you can pause on the email, you can see that

From watching that interview, he's obviously lying. What is it with football players and beating women?

I thought he looked like a moron and was asked several questions that he was busted on and wasn't sure how to answer them. Then his defense mechanisms kicked in by talking louder and faster. Brandon's attorney should tell him to not talk because he digs pretty good holes for himself.

I don't know if Brandon has ever put his hands on Whatley, but my gut feeling as well as the facts that have been presented throughout these incidents tell me she is more about money and trying to hurt Brandon's reputation than she is a "battered girlfriend". I think he has made his share of mistakes, and should have called things off with her long before many of these incidents occurred. But I honestly think he is being relatively truthful. In the court of public opinion, being innocent until proven guilty is rarely the case. You are usually presumed guilty as soon as there is an accusation. I think you need to look at the facts, and they are that Brandon has never been successfully charged and found guilty of abusing any woman. I hope that remains true. I think she is a golddigger just trying to get money out of him, and this is the lengths she is willing to go.

Granted, when I first heard that Brandon had an altercation with his new fiance I got worried that I have been wrong about him.

If you "have to wonder" about that, then you must be very young, very naive, or both.

It's far more likely she'd think of money than that the team would try to "keep her quiet."

if you were a female that can:
1. get into the media
2. possibly get a lot of money very easily
3. lie/exaggerate a little bit to do it

would you do it? maybe, maybe not. she would and she is.

It's funny how all these innocent victims of female extortion seem to usually attract multiple accusers.

I think the timing of this should also be taken in to account. They have a pending trial in June, it makes sense that she would try to get as much public support as she can in order to be awarded a settlement check. I'm very suspicious of all of her claims

What kind of awful attempt at logic is that? How long was he with Watley despite everything that kept going on between them?

Well said, but why mutually exclusive?

Yes, he may have battered her, and yes, she ALSO may have extorted the team. I happen to believe both are true.

how is it an awful attempt at logic?

his fiance has never said ****, they both got put in jail and were both let out hours later. the guy from espn said the judge dismissed the charges immediately and laughed at them.

his old GF, who knows why he stayed with her far after she was extorting him for money. if he was seriously beating her, im sure far more evidence would have been provided then "OMG he hit me, pay me 100k"

The most interesting part of the story for me, which solidified my opinion that she is a nut job is that they have known each other since the 8th grade, yet he didn't become abusive until June 2006. Hmmm, drafted in April 2006, about to make a lot of money, out of nowhere becomes abusive. One would think that if he was going to be abusive it would have started in High School when kids are much more immature and unable to deal with relationships. She's after $$$.

She is a horrible actor. Throw some tears in there and get the sympathy vote. She is looking for money.
