Too bad they are always in the news for something other than football.....jeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeze

THE NEWS

Onterrio Smith can't seem stay out of trouble. The Vikings' running back, already serving a one-year suspension for violating the NFL's substance abuse policy, has been accused of sexual assault by a 21-year-old Twin Cities woman, according to KSTP-TV in Minneapolis. A civil suit was filed today in Hennepin County District Court alleging that Smith and another Vikings player were drinking with the woman on June 12, 2004 when she passed out. The victim alleges that when she woke up, both players were on top of her. The woman has fetal alcohol syndrome.

Our View

Stay hot, Onterrio. This alleged crime happened well in advance of Smith's infamous Whizzinator incident, but it's still quite feasible that the league could take further action against him, perhaps even a lifetime ban. Smith was obviously in the league's program at the time of this incident, meaning it could be counted as another violation. The sexual assault charge just adds to the likelihood that more sanctions could be forthcoming from the league. It hasn't exactly been a stellar week (or year) for the Vikings, huh?

Sounds pretty similiar to a Law and Order episode where the school heroes were acquitted of charges they took advantage of a retarded girl who just wanted to "feel special and pretty."

I am not prepared to say Smith and the unnamed second player are innocent of anything...but proving they are guilty, or likely are guilty, is another matter altogether. This incident occurred four months ago--does the woman have any evidence to prove that the sex wasn't consensual? Or, for that matter, that it occurred at all? Did she report the incident at the time, or seek medical attention? I know that rape victims are often afraid to come forward, but at the same time you can't convict someone of a serious crime based on nothing more than four-month old accusations with no physical evidence to back them up (assuming there is no such evidence). Not to be cruel, but the testimony of someone with FAS isn't the most reliable, either. The standard of proof in a civil case is normally lower than in a criminal case, but there still must be some corrobarating evidence (body fluids, physical damage, that sort of thing).

How sad is it that the football board right now is focused on rape charges, fluid samples, and groping of eighteen year olds? confused.gif

Eyehunter,

Look at the date again. 1 year, 4 months. I guess that just proves your point even more.

Maybe she is like the 85 year old woman who burst into the Police Station crying "Officer, Officer I've been raped".

The Officer asked her "When did this happen Maam"?

The lady replied "Sixty-three years ago".

The Officer asked "Maam why did you wait so long to report this"?

She replied "Report it hell, I just want to talk about it"!

I call bad post on my part. I didn't even realize it was last years news.....for some stupid reason Fanball felt the need to post it in the updates and I just overread the actual date and posted it hear. Thanks for the update fanball!

Anyways....I don't have any details you are asking for...I can't answer any of that....maybe the atorney could help ya?

I am just an frusterated fan sick of only seeing my team in the news for something other than football (or lack there of).

And...it is sad that this is what the board has come too...sorry for my part of it!

      Hey Joshua, May be post back in the morning when the owner of this site is awake and see if he likes the Free bait, buy later your selling. May be you can work out the sponsor-vendor deal with him.  I'll have to say posting late at night when site owners and most of the Mods are asleep is a good way to get some site and product views in before it's deleted. Good luck with the sales!

      According to the Army Corp of Engineers weather station here in Waskish we have had a grand total of  1.29 inches of precipitation so far in 2018.  When we were burning the grass of there was still about 30% snow cover. The flames were hitting 10 feet high.

      Nice to see there might actually be some ice melting up that way! jkrash, those are hooded mergansers though.   I might’ve called out my first woodie sighting this year as one of those too.  But nah!  I know what I saw had to be woodie! Haha! Seriously though, I’ve seen more, and more variety of ducks this spring than ever  in my life.  The late lake ice outs have made the river a diver Mecca.  I think I saw a few with Ely or bust signs on em too!  The bulk of woodies have been in the Little Falls area for about a week, some for a couple.  The hoodeds have been here for at least a month. They’re all coming though!
