Deshaun Watson gets laughable suspension from Sue Robinson as NFL fumbles its case | Opinion

1 min read


Every time the NFL has a chance to stand for women, it fails. Spectacularly.

Retired judge Sue L. Robinson deserves no small amount of criticism, whether it’s for the laughably light six-game suspension she recommend for Deshaun Watson on Monday morning or her supposed rationalization for it because his predatory behavior was “nonviolent sexual conduct.” It’s that kind of 1950s thinking, that assaults and harassment don’t really count unless violence is involved, that perpetuates rape culture and marginalization of women.
