Charges were dismissed, yes?

Accuser/victim wouldn't testify in the criminal case but received an apology and a large compensation package in the civil trial. Wonder how it would have panned out today.

It would at least have a hashtag as well.

But forgot about that. It was never really shown to weigh one way or another in that case from what I recall. maybe someone else knows more details.

Bryant was a massively complicated person, to say the least.

This is a great write up about him following his retirement.

Absolutely awful. Most shocking of these I’ve experienced.

Throws the league up in the air, not one of these guys who didn’t idolise him. Just awful.

Not really. Nuggets playing Rockets right now, no mention of it.

I started college in Colorado not too long after that happened and had friends who were from the Eagle-Vail area. The consensus among them seemed to be that he didn't rape her. Obviously that doesn't mean he didn't but given the outcome of everything, I tend to believe it.

Sad his daughter died as well.

Reports are that another player (and their daughter) was on board, but it doesn't appear to be Fox as multiple sources have said it's not and he apparently has been active on social media post crash.

It sounds like he was on the way to his daughter's basketball game and her teammate and her teammate's dad were the other passengers on board. I guess the other dad could have been a former player too.

Everyone except passionate Laker fans thinks he bought her off. The whole deal in Colorado never occurred in southern California.

It was most likely a deal of they agreed to sex but not a certain sexual act.

Raptors & Spurs both started the game with intentional shot clock (eg 24 second) violations as a tribute.

Yes, an extremely fit 40 year old with no known health problems or mental illnesses would have been the top of everyone's list.

thats why dead pools are fun, it can be ANYONE and not just the old farts that refuse to die, pretty sure someone would have had terry jones or john cleese for this year, 2 famous deaths already and its just the first month..no one expected 2 healthy retired Rugby payers to die in 2019 now did they?

Hmm. Considering he never leaves his room like the sad keyboard warrior he is, you're somewhat limited in the options for possible death. Maybe infected bed sores, or the effects of morbid obesity?

The handwringing in that twitter feed :roll:

The guy in the first section actually tries to give a bit of context on how it may have happened and gets shouted down by some freak with red hair.

No one can make a mistake anymore cause it might be racist.

Bring on the pandemic.

Comets' PR account must be near the top, hovering somewhere in between Kirk Douglas and Olivia de Havilland.

I’ll see if I can prod him into calling you an anti-Semite, I know you’ll take one for the team.

She used the n-word. Woke or not, I think most people can agree it was racist yeeah? It's certainly an interesting slip.

Twitter folk are mental. Pure mad. Jamie's definitely fighting the good fight on that thread.
