Yesterday a massage therapist filed a case against him and today another one was file. he denied the case yesterday. ESPN is reporting that there are SIX cases out there, only 2 have filed suits so far but the other 4 are considering it now that the first 2 have gone public. The first 2 were filed by the same lawyer he apparently has had the other 4 contact him now too.

Watson says the lawyer demanded a 6 figure settlement, he refused, so they filed the suits.

That same lawyer has ties to Texans owner...spent a grip of money trying to convince McNair to draft Manziel.

That was my thought too but when you get to 6 it starts to make the thing harder to ignore.

Very weird story though

Pg-13 version of the allegations. 1 allegation.

he wanted the massager to oil his exit lane and kept exposing his frontside

3rd lawsuit filed today, lawyer says 3 more are coming and he's still getting calls from others who claim something similar happened.

He apparently is the guy who put up billboards telling McNair to draft Manziel, but so far there's no indication he has some vendetta against McNair or Watson.

Story is getting weird, at this point if this is a money grab you'd think the women would and the lawyer would be smarter about it not all ganging up at once. The lawyer is now asking for protection because he's getting multiple death threats against himself and his children he says.

Weird one.

All I can say is that I'd have put Watson down as one of the last guys to do this. Seem's like a solid, stand up dude.

Also weird to have no rumors at all surrounding Watson despite the media coverage the NFL gets and then multiple allegations to come out at once.

Yeah I never really followed him until the trade stuff started but he's a big guy with charities and stuff like that so it does strike you as odd.

as for the lack of rumors Winslow and Darren Sharper I'm not sure if there were rumors about them before they suddenly were both revealed to be sexual predators but I think both of them started after they were done playing. young guy like Watson is pretty high profile in Texas.

Just a strange story but apparently there are more cases coming.

An aside probably not a surprise but a friend of mine has a girlfriend who's a massage therapist she said her friend told her you literally would have a hard time finding a female massage therapist who hasn't had a borderline sex assault by a customer. I pointed this out elsewhere they had a woman on CNN last night who's part of some national registry of massage therapists, she said since the high profile case in Florida where authorities just basically let a bunch of rich white men off, including the Pats owner Kraft, it's basically sent a signal to customers it's ok for them to expect sex at a massage.

Looking rough with 9 accusers, ill let the facts play out though


TMZ says 9 women and the lawyer says he is talking to several more. It's impossible to know but that is a crazy number of people to come forward like this.

I guess thats wait and see. I usually don't get paranoid about these situations but he's playing hardball with a billionaire. I expect McNair would do anything to make life hell for Watson.
