    I misunderstood what Rappaport said. I came back to edit my post. He said he's not going to be in Philadelphia for the draft. My apologies.

    Gotcha. No need to apologize, just an honest misunderstanding. I wonder how far this will drop Conley.

    I saw this a couple of days ago I believe and that article said the paperwork was withheld the media to prevent a name drop.

    Mainly because his stock just plummeted and he could be found not guilty but it won't matter. This is similar to the La'el Collins situation where he pretty much became undraftable because of that murder investigation.

    Hopefully they can get to the bottom of this and serve justice against either party.

    I would draft most guys with most issues but I wouldn't touch him until his name was cleared of any wrongdoing. I cant imagine a team even using a 7th to hold his rights.

    I don't understand why she would decline the sex but agree to go back to the room and watch the others have sex. This is really odd.

    It's very difficult to "prove" lying in a situation like this, there's always an out unfortunately. It's a serious problem in this country. To be clear, I think rapists should be castrated or killed, so I am not defending the behavior in the least. However, there are serious consequences for the accused in any situation, and in cases that involve fabrications, the alleged victim rarely receives any punishment of note.

    Interesting point, it's difficult to understand given the wording of the article. Did she agree to watch but not engage, or was she held against her will after refusing to engage? Again, you never want to point the finger at the victim, but you have to question the intent here. Why would you agree to go to a hotel room with a man you met at 3am in a hotel? When you live your life that way you have to know your intentions will be questioned.

    According to this article on ESPN, three witnesses say Conley asked her to leave the room and she became angry, and that nothing had happened between them. So, either she is lying, or the witnesses are lying on his behalf. This case sounds like it will need strong physical evidence to overcome the he said she said statements.

    This report that mentions conversations with people that were in the room pretty much says the same thing:

    Will there be jail time for this girl if she's really lying? No, which is a shame. When people say that rapists should be killed, and I agree, then people that make false rape accusations should be locked away for life.

    I believe in justice, and innocent until proven guilty. I absolutely believe the death penalty should be on the table for rape and especially pedophilia. I completely agree with your point about those that make false allegations. I believe they should face the same punishment as the accused faced. Now, the death penalty may be a bit overkill, but I don't think life is. They are willing to see an innocent person pay dearly for their own gain in some way, which is disgusting.

    the issue here is that the tests and the story will not be corroborated until well after the NFL draft is said and done. A few things strike me as odd with this though. A 911 call was made where specifics of the male were given over the phone yet in all of the initial reports it did not state that she waited for police at or near the scene. The reports and details I am reading make it sound like this young woman made her own way to a local hospital where a rape kit was administered and she refused to speak with police when she was at that hospital.

    I guess the big question for me is if she was raped why wouldn't she have called 911 and had emergency workers not only investigate the incident right then and there but also be the ones to escort her to the hospital? Having something like that happen to you and then immediately calling 911 to then flee the scene and then drive to the hospital on your own seems strange to me.

    Now if this story does turn out to hold merit and details arise that fits this young woman's timeline I'd like to see not only Gareon charged but his teammates who were present charged as well. There is one of two scenarios which occurred if that was the case 1. they lied to the police and gave false statements AND/or 2. they participated or at the very least knew what was going on and did nothing.

    As per his draft stock I see this as a similar situation to La'el Collins. It is simply too big of a risk to draft this guy unless a decision has been made by the police or in the courts. He is best suited as a UDFA. Oddly enough given the history Dallas could very well be this young man's home when all is said and done - if he is not in jail.

    Breaking News on NFL.com

    http://www.nfl.com/news/story/0ap300...mpletely-false

    In a statement released Wednesday, Ohio State cornerback Gareon Conley said the rape accusation made against him earlier this month is "completely false" and that he "did not commit a crime."

    Cleveland police confirmed to NFL.com Tuesday that Conley, considered a top defensive prospect in this week's NFL draft, is under investigation after he was accused by a woman of raping her at a downtown Cleveland hotel on April 9.

    Conley, 21, has not been charged or arrested in connection to the alleged incident, according to Cleveland Police Dept. spokeswoman Jennifer Ciaccia. No warrant has been issued and the department's sex crimes and child abuse units are investigating, Ciaccia added.

    Conley has not been interviewed yet by police. Investigators have reached out to him and are in the process of scheduling an interview with him, Ciaccia said.


    Here is the full Conley statement released through his representation:

    The allegations against me concerning the night of April 8/9 that have recently been reported in multiple media outlets are completely false. I did not commit a crime and have not been charged with a crime.

    I pride myself on doing things the right way on and off the field. The things being said about me and what happened that night are not true and don't fit my character at all. I realize that I put myself in the situation and I could have used better judgement. However, I have worked tirelessly to put myself in position to have the honor of being an NFL draft pick and these untrue allegations are putting a huge cloud over my name and the NFL draft.

    These allegations appear to be an attempt to ruin this once in a lifetime experience for me and my family. There were several witnesses, including another female, who were present the entire time and have given statements that give an accurate account of what took place. We also have video evidence that further discredit and disprove other versions of these events. I am upset but realize that I am powerless when false accusations are made and people try to convict you in the court of public opinion. It's sad that your name can get dragged through the mud based upon untrue and malicious allegations alone.

    I am completely confident that as the facts actually come out my name will be cleared. I was excited about participating in Thursday's draft but I have decided that it would be selfish for me to stay and be a distraction to the NFL, the other players, and their families who have worked just as hard as me to enjoy the experience so I will not be in attendance.

    I hope and look forward to the honor of being an NFL player and working to be the best representative, player, person, and teammate that I can be for the team and the community I will be in.
    Also a video with some additional detail:

    Video realeased shows the accuser and Conley together at the club earlier in the evening, so part of her story has been proven false.
