Former ESPN reporter Jemele Hill is trending this week for continuously speaking out after the suspension of Deshaun Watson only yielded 6 games.
After going viral on Twitter for her opinion, Hill would speak on Dan Le Batard’s show and state how disappointed she was in the report that condemned Watson a ton but did not deliver in the suspension.
“I’m appalled and disappointed in the message this sends to women, which is often that we have to tolerate the bad behavior of men at the risk of our own personal safety and just live with it.”
In the wake of an NFL arbitrator giving Cleveland Browns quarterback Deshaun Watson a ridiculously short six-game suspension despite dozens of sexual misconduct accusations against him, many have begun comparing his suspension to other past offenses.
Vontaze Burfict lost twice as many games for violent on-field hits and Deandre Hopkins is scheduled to miss exactly that many games for trace amounts of PEDs discovered in his system.
Josh Gordon and Darren Waller missed a whole season each for smoking weed while Tom Brady was suspended two fewer games for deflating footballs to make them easier to throw and catch.
The six-game suspension of Deshaun Watson is a joke.
