Clay Travis: “So far I think Tony Buzbee has played everything brilliantly. The first thing that I think he did that was brilliant was he got Deshaun Watson to come out and issue a statement where Deshaun Watson made it sound like ‘hey, there is just one woman who wants money, this is just a shakedown…’ and then as he has continued to layer lawsuit, after lawsuit, after lawsuit, he’s turned Deshaun Watson in the mind of many into Bill Cosby, let’s be honest. Deshaun Watson had a sterling reputation; one of the best reputations for any quarterback in the NFL, such that when these initial accusations came out there was a great deal of disbelief. But as they have continued to pile up they have become far more believable… One of the tabloids in New York City came out with a headline where they said it’s commonplace for lawyers to say this is a ‘he-said/she-said’ when they’re trying to defend a man from sexual assault, and we now have reached the point where we are at a ‘he-said/she-said, she-said, she-said, she-said, she-said, she-said, she-said, she-said, she-said, she-said, she-said, she-said, she-said, she-said. she-said.’ We are approaching 20 different women who have filed lawsuits saying that Deshaun Watson sexually assaulted them. Are all of those women lying? Sure it’s possible – anything is possible. I have never seen a case where that many women were lying about one man, alleging sexual assault. Particularly when these women are from multiple different states and do not know each other according to reports. In other for this to be some sort of conspiracy, or for this to be collusion, that would be highly improbable. If that were to be true, and if all of these women were lying and they were seeking to defame Deshaun Watson, they should all face the utmost legal punishment available to them… If I had to choose which side of the case I would like to be on right now, the plaintiff lawyer – Tony Buzbee, or Rusty Hardin – the defense lawyer, this is not a difficult question at all. The plaintiff’s lawyer has a much stronger hand. The amount of peril that Deshaun Watson is in is seismic… There is a world of trouble out there for Deshaun Watson.” (Full Segment Above)
Listen to Clay Travis discuss the developing fallout around Deshaun Watson, as Clay looks at the mounting sexual assault allegations against the Houston Texans quarterback from the plaintiff’s side.
Earlier on Clay’s show on Tuesday, he looked at the case currently from the defense’s position, as Clay, a licensed lawyer in the U.S Virgin Island and Tennessee, described what legal route he would go if he were the attorney representing Watson.

Check out the segment above as Clay details why he thinks the plaintiff’s lawyer, Tony Buzbee, has effectively made Watson look like the now-infamous and disgraced former beloved actor Bill Cosby, who went from pop-culture icon to pariah seemingly overnight.
