On Monday morning, the NFL decided that it will suspend Cleveland Browns quarterback, Deshaun Watson, for six games this upcoming season, after dozens of allegations of sexual misbehavior that occurred when Watson was a member of the Houston Texans. Watson has since settled most of the civil cases tied to the accusations.
But fans weren’t happy with the punishment. Many of them continued pointing to the year long suspension of former Atlanta Falcons receiver Calvin Ridley, who gambled on the sport on a league sponsored app (story HERE).
Lets go to the reactions..

Deshaun Watson essentially got all that money from the Browns to buy silence from all these women so he could play as much football as possible.
There's your truth.

Tom Brady was suspended 4 games for the NFL not understanding science.
Calvin Ridley was suspended 1 year for gambling on the NFL.
Deshaun Watson was suspended 6 games for sexually assaulting more than 20 women.
I don’t think I can share my thoughts on this disgusting ruling.

4 games for Brady on an equipment violation, draft picks, $1 million fine for Pats.
“Turning over ownership” of team for billionaire lech Daniel Snyder, arguably the biggest POS in sports.
6 games & a $333,000 loss of wages for super creep DeShaun Watson. What a joke.

Just another reminder. The NFL doesn’t “really” care about the things they say do. They’re a business. It’s good for business for Deshaun Watson to play football. Ratings. 6 games proves that. Not shocking. There’s zero consistency to their punishments. Never has been.

Calvin Ridley getting a longer suspension than Deshaun Watson is pretty messed up.

If Deshaun Watson only got 6 games then Alvin Kamara better not see a fucking minute of suspension

I’m not going to let Deshaun Watson ruin my day, he has done that to enough women.
Hopefully, the NFL appeals and changes the suspension. Just going to have to wait and see, patiently.

What do you think?
Is the punishment fair?
If not, what should the punishment be?
How should Browns fans be feeling right now?
