Clay Travis: “The best-case scenario for Deshaun Watson is that all of these women are lying. There is almost a zero percent chance of that occurring, but if that were to occur, then those women should be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law because women who are actual sexual assault victims are not believed because there is a small segment of the population that lies about incidents such as these. For instance, Duke lacrosse… That entire story was based on a women’s lie. When someone is caught in a lie then there is a natural inclination to not believe people going forward. I don’t think that’s very likely. I think the best-case scenario is he misses half of the season on an NFL suspension and has to pay millions of dollars to these women and forever has his overall name tarred in its association with these allegations... It may be that some of these women, it often is, do not have as strong of a case as others, and the best defense strategy that you can employ is to find the weakest case and tear it apart, and delegitimize that claim in an effort to try and delegitimize ALL of the claims. That’s often what happens in the defense strategy. You can’t say that all 14, 15, 24, whatever the total number of women is going to end up being, you can’t say that ALL of those women are lying, but if you can find one case that doesn’t add up, and you can put it out into the public arena as a falsehood, then it gives you the opportunity to impute dishonesty on other cases, even if that might not be the case. That is a strong defense strategy.”
