Statement Given From Josh Brown To ESPN:
Well, I'm sold. Nothing speaks to a man's innocence like waiting a week to defend himself against chilling allegations that had the entirety of the sports world tearing apart every fiber of his character. Can't say I have any experience with being incriminated of unforgivable transgressions, but I would definitely silently sit on my hands for awhile so I didn't cause a distraction to an organization that was strangely prolonging the inevitable, obvious choice to axe me. If Josh Brown says he didn't place his hands on his wife then I think we have to give him the benefit of the doubt here. After all, he was there so he would know better than any of us. That's probably why he didn't say anything until now. Just waiting to make us alllllll look silly by proving us wrong with an incredibly timely statement exonerating himself of guilt. Boy, do we look stupid after jumping to the conclusions presented to us by the haunting journal entries that served as evidence of his extensive history of domestic abuse. Typical media, just using the written words of the accused and undisputed facts to exaggerate the truth and push the factual narrative about a guy who clearly beat his wife.
Oh...but wait a second...
Statement Given From Josh Brown To Giants:
Is that what it took? Josh Brown outright denying that he physically abused his wife like a week after everyone read his dairy in which he, himself, wrote about physically abusing his wife? That was finally enough for the Giants to be like "you know what? I think our insanely average kicker might have some personal issues and mental problems that are reflecting poorly on this organization. Maybe we should cut him because every day we don't we might seem like we are accepting of his behavior". Nothing before that was a fireable offense? He literally had to back track on his admission of guilt days after the fact for a previously well respected organization to be like "ohhhh, I see. He's an out-of-touch lunatic that really doesn't quite grasp the severity of his actions, nor does he even truly understand that he was fully responsible for them". I honestly don't understand how it took an NFL franchise getting slapped across the face with the harsh truth countless times before finally deciding to turn the other cheek.
I guess this can serve as a benchmark in an awful, ass backwards way. If NFL teams want to know how to handle allegations of domestic abuse in the future just do the exact opposite of what the Giants have done this past week, because it simply doesn't get any more tone deaf than that.
