Life has been destroyed. Asks for $150,000. LOL

Seems pretty low TBH. If it were about money I'd think he'd ask for a lot more than that.  Maybe he just wants the story to come out and you have to attach a dollar figure to it in civil court. IDK.

Of all the things victims can be shamed for ...

I don’t know what you were trying to say, but I’m trying to say is that the claim doesn’t match the amount asked for unless you think your life is essentially worthless.

I don't get it. What makes these p******s think that they can live in a void and not face the consequences for their actions? They'll always be found out one way or another - especially since the plaintiff discovered that the guy had been arrested for a similar incident a few years later.

I can understand why the plaintiff wants to remain as anonymous as possible. Sure, we can all go back and find out who was on that roster and take a wild guess if he was some 5th liner or a star player. But 150K? Something doesn't sound right about that. If that had happened to a woman and Gloria Allred was her attorney, we'd be looking at around eight figures at least.

If I’m a professional athlete who feels my life and career were ruined, I’d start at $50 mill maybe $100 mill.  

Exactly.

Exactly. 

The article says he "is seeking damages from the team in excess of $150,000," which is a common way of phrasing a claim in a complaint to meet some sort of jurisdictional/statutory minimum.  I'd bet that's the case here.

Thanks. 
 

and BTW, I am not doubting his claims, but my reading of the number was comically low for the words spoken by the lawyer.

Seems like that's a general consensus for all who have posted on this thread. Granted, I don't think the case will be so absurd that it rivals the USFL for pyrrhic victories. I just can't wrap my head around that rather paltry number for something that is allegedly so serious.

That is what I understood you to mean.  Just clearing up some of the legalese.

What if... and stay with me... the player just wants the team held accountable and the money isn't the object? Some ppl actually want justice and money isn't the same thing. 

 

 

 

Love how we doubt the accused because they didn't ask for enough money. Fun part is if they had asked for more ppl would be in here screaming about how it's a money grab. Gotta love the mental gymnastics to get out of a uncomfortable situation.

Who doubted anyone? I literally said the opposite. I can even provide a link.

Half dozen of one, half dozen of the other. Pardon me for questioning a low ball amount. As I said, I couldn't wrap my head around that amount.
