Default Will we ever see Watson in the Clemson Ring of Honor now?

What was once a given is now a question.

Good question. Time heals wounds, so never say never. I think of Coach Ford in that way. However, I think Watson would have to come clean on what really has been going on and show how he is getting help and overcome it. No idea where this will end up, but if it remains a civil suit that gets paid then maybe thereís a chance at redemption. To be honest, settling down with a good woman, raising a family, and continuing his Christian charitable works would go a long ways towards getting renewed consideration for ROH. Therefore, donít plan on revisiting this topic for another 10+ years.

Its a fair question but too early to answer. Need to see how this plays out. DW could come out of this clean or really dirty. The difference will have a big impact on a lot of aspects of his future.

I am still of the opinion that he is innocent and will remain that way unless he admits otherwise or is found guilty in a court of law.

I wonít say never, but the hill to get there just got steeper. You will never be able to take away what he did for Clemson during his time here; no matter the outcome of his current situation. Unfortunately, heís become a victim of his own success.

We do need to play it out. But going off the right now, how bad these allegations sound and having so many massage therapists (now at 41), I'll say no.

What's the saying about never meeting your heroes because they will let you down? That applies here. Too much smoke for there not to be a flame. He's still the greatest Clemson Tiger of all time, but he won't be in the ROH imo.

Somewhere at the end of all this, it just might be Dabo Swinney who brings Deshaun Watson back into the Clemson family.

The amount of smoke is what makes me skeptical. How many massage therapists did he see to have 41 different allegations!? Did the entire city of Houston massage community line up to see him? There's a lot of smoke, but it doesn't smell like fire to me.

There arenít 41 allegations. Half of those 41 are massage therapists testifying that Deshaun behaved in a professional manner.

He should be, no doubt. He lead this team to a National Championship. What he does in his own time is his business.

Jesus H...how 'bout we let due flipping process do it's thing?!?

Speculation and opinions mean Z I P.

Bottom line, if he's guilty (which NONE of us KNOW) then NO.

If exonerated, well DUH.

I concur.

In fact, speculation and questions THIS early actually piss me off a bit. Our society with social media nowadays is WAY too quick to assume guilt and assign blame instead of waiting to let the process play out.

Thank goodness that accusations alone wonít convict a person....although we are getting uncomfortably close imo.

Go Tigers

The fact that there are 41 different massage therapists who DW has contacted for "massages" is a red flag for seeking prostitution services. Just like a person going to 41 different MDs (most likely they are looking for prescription for pills).



I get it. Most all men like a good hand job. I think there are plenty of these women who are just seeking money. I also think that DW may have misread the situation and had acted inappropriately on at least a few occasions. It'll be interesting to see how this plays out (if there will be any type of settlement or not.)

Agreed that given what we know it hard to imagine DW did not ask for some "extra attention". For me its all about how he asked. For example, hinting at a giant tip for a little extra attention is vastly different than refusing to pay unless they comply or in some way threating them if they don't do what he wants. Unfortunately I doubt we will ever know for sure.

I get it, but he's DW. He could walk into any club/bar in Houston and leave with just about anyone he wanted to. He's had a pornstar in his freakin' house! Even if he didn't want to be seen in public leaving clubs with women, he can afford a high end escort service. Unless he has some kind of massage with benefits fetish, it just doesn't add up for me.

Unless he is indicted for something, I'll say yes. Most people believe in forgiveness and understand that people will do anything they can to get money. He may have done some unsavory things here (I still don't know because it doesn't really seem to add up), but I don't think that will disqualify him from the ring of honor.
