    Yeah. Prostitution is a big part of what fuels human trafficking.

    And I don't want to see Robert Kraft get a pass just because he's a rich nfl owner and a friend of Trump.

    And where did the woman who founded the Orchids of Asia day spa watch Bob Kraft's team play in this most recent Super Bowl?

    She was at Donald Trump's Super Bowl party at Mar-a-Lago, of course. You could not make this stuff up.

    Steeler teams featuring stat-driven, me-first, fantasy-football-darling diva types such as Antonio Brown & Le'Veon Bell won no championships.

    Super Bowl winning Steeler teams were built around a dynamic, in-your-face defense plus blue-collar, hard-hitting, no-nonsense football players on offense such as Hines Ward & Jerome Bettis.

    We don't want Juju & Conner to replace what we lost in Brown & Bell.

    We are counting on Juju & Conner to return us to the glory we once had with Hines & The Bus.

    So i guess this is next on the Democratic agenda?
    Mueller investigation didn't work out so lets link the President to illegal sex trafficking.
    Democrats have no shame when it comes to politics.
    I wish people would/could leave politics out of a Steelers Football Forum.

    That investigation is still ongoing and people are actually going to jail for breaking laws.

    Democrats have no shame? L O L

    The entire political system is a shame. All we do every 4 years is spend the entire time investigating and trashing the other side of the fence.

    Kraft will not accept prosecution’s offer

    Posted by Mike Florio on March 20, 2019, 12:41 PM EDT

    As expected, Patriots owner Robert Kraft will not be accepting an offer that would result in pending charges of solicitation of prostitution being dismissed.

    CNN reports that Kraft won’t be entering into a deal that would see the charges disappear in exchange for an acknowledgement that, if prosecuted, he would have been convicted.

    T.J. Quinn of ESPN.com previously reported that the request for an admission of a guilty verdict is a “non-starter” for Kraft.

    Kraft, who is due to be arraigned on March 28, presumably needs a full and complete exoneration in order to avoid punishment from the Commissioner under the Personal Conduct Policy. Given the evidence as characterized by publicly-filed affidavits, Kraft’s lawyers could attack various technical flaws in the investigation, and they could pursue the more fundamental argument that there is no proof that solicitation as defined under Florida law occurred during Kraft’s interactions with a pair of Florida residents who worked at a day spa in Palm Beach County.

    If Kraft digs in and fights and ultimately secures a dismissal on the merits, it will be difficult for the league to justify punishing him. Thus, unless the prosecution will offer him a full and complete dismissal, he may have no choice but to fight.

    It will be interesting to see how the league handles this.

    They have shown that they do not require convictions (or even charges) to sanction players. The metric for punishment has consistently been about protecting the shield.

    If they don't punish the Pats in this case, it won't be unreasonable to assume that part of that is because of the relationship between Kraft and Goodell.

    All Goodall requires is that video tape. If Kraft is on it, done deal.
    From the 2010-2018 season, (An 8 year period that the majority of Cowher's players & coaches had left) Mike Tomlin has only won 3 playoff games. And two of those wins were against back up Quarterbacks. Our history has been defined by what we do in the postseason; not the regular season.

    Goodell enjoys destroying incriminating videotape for Kraft. One of his favorite pasttimes.
