Reports: Ex-Saint Darren Sharper arrested on rape charges

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; An former NFL player who is an analyst for NFL network arrested on rape charges? Nothing new or exiting to read here. Come to think of it don't they employ 2 or 3 others on the same charges?...

I need more information before I make any judgements about this, but I would be lying if I said I wasn't freaking out a little about it. Say it isn't so.

I dont know if it's something to freak out about. It's not like he was a friend or family member hiding in plain sight who you had let baby sit the kids and gone on vacation together. It's not a reflection on our team. I just think it's rediculous he lost his job without having a chance in court. The NFL could care less if he did it or not they just want to cover their ass like the people at A&e did with duck dynasty.

Re: Reports: Ex-Saint Darren Sharper arrested on rape charges

When people think of rape, a lot of them think of a creeper hiding in the bushes for the unsuspecting female victim to pull up in her car and walk into her house or the creeper waiting behind the tree in the middle of the night for the late night jogger to come strolling by with head phones on.

In reality it could be something like he went out with a woman, they got a little tipsy and decided to go back to her place or to a hotel room. They start messing around, she changes her mind and decides to stop. He won't take no for an answer because he's ready to go or maybe he's got money and used to getting his way, so he just forces himself on her and thinks its no big deal.

That's a rape gentlemen.

I agree with your words.
I just question the delay from October.
What we do not know is if it is the same woman.

Wait for it. A wealthy guy who is good looking is a target. So I'll give him the benefit of the doubt until the facts arrive.

Rape is a heinous crime ..... Being accused of rape is life altering.... Please remember innocent until proven guilty. Example : Duke Men's Lacrosse Team

Is it me or are people no longer Innocent until proven guilty in a court of law
That is the unfortunate reality of a charge like this. The accusation is the same as being found guilty with most people. Even if its proven that he was innocent (and I'm not saying he is....), there will be many people who think he got off on a technicality or paid his way to get off on the charge.
Very sad if he is indeed innocent.

My thoughts.

If it's the same woman... WTF?

If it's two different women.... They know each other / collusion.

What are the odds two women that do not know each other and are raped 3-4 months apart come out and report on the same week?

There seems to be too much focus on sharper and zero on the accuser(s).
