    Racial Accusations against Mason

    If you havent heard, Garret at his appeal, accused Mason of using racial words towards him.

    First of all calling someone derogative racial slurs is wrong, with that I made clear....

    I won't take sides on if he did or didn't, but is that really a reason to use a helmet as a weapon. That is no excuse, its like someone being called racial slurs to someone who has a knife in their hand and stabs the person using the racial words. How would that stand in court? I dont understand why ESPN reports are making it seem as if it justifies it. It is still wrong to swing helmets.

    Now my other point is, how is this going to effect Mason and the locker room. Heyward already made a comment that he believes in what Mason told him, that he didn't say anything racial. But would others in the locker room look at him different?
    ďIím so tired of LeíVeon," DeCastro told reporters (h/t ESPN's Jeremy Fowler ([url]https://twitter.com/JFowlerESPN/status/1038909446146203649[/url])) after Sunday's game. "Iím so tired of it. Letís just worry about the guys in here. I know you guys have stories to write and what not. I love LeíVeon, but we gotta worry about the guys in here. Theyíre the only people that matter to me."

    Rudolph should file assault charges and slander.
    I'm sure a good lawyer can pursue this as a hate crime.

    Even if Mason did use it Garrett is still guilty of swinging a helmet.

    Allegedly Rudolph had a MAGA hat hidden inside of his helmet and some bleach and a noose hidden inside his jock as well.

    I dont know what happened, and none of us can say what happened.
    If Rudolf is telling the truth...Garrett has a motive to lyingly make up that story.
    Conversely, if Garrett is telling the truth...Rudolf has every reason to deny it.

    Bottom line...we dont know...but the burden of "proof" lies with the accuser, not the accused.

    Seems clear to me, you HAVE to presume Rudolf innocent until "proven" guilty.
    I seriously doubt any teammate will assume he said it based on a player who has every incentive to make it up.
    I believe they will rightly will continue to support their teammate.

    What we KNOW is that Garrett recklessly tried to maim Rudolf.
    We dont need to take anyones word for it we ALL saw it...he is guilty period...whether the unsubstantiated accusation against Rudolf is true or not.

    Iím not buying Garrettís (new) BS story. If Rudolph had used racial slurs, Garrett would have at least mentioned it after the game. Instead he apologized and admitted his behavior was over the line. End of BS story.
