Cleveland Browns QB, Deshaun Watson is under the NFL microscope as the league investigates allegations of sexual misconduct, charges for which he will not face any legal jeopardy. Doug thinks the proper punishment would be a suspension that the Browns and Watson feel is too long while at the same time, the accusers feel is too short. The only way to be fair is to make sure nobody is happy.

Doug Gottlieb: “What is the level of suspension which is appropriate, which is fair to all parties? That number is somewhere between ‘never play football’ and ‘play football right away.’  And whatever number that is that both sides are upset about, that’s probably the one.”
