Sorry to shout, but everyone is just ignoring that like it doesn't matter...how can that phone call be believed in light of the fact that the corroborating witness was cheating on the accused with the alleged victim? The tape means nothing to me. I WAS mortified, reading the transcript this morning - until I (finally) got to the part where ESPN bothers to mention the fact that the two were sleeping together. I know that ESPN WANTS everyone to overlook this, as evidenced by how far down the story it went, so much that other places are leaving this detail out of their coverage entirely, but aren't we smart enough to see this for what it POTENTIALLY could be? MAYBE it is damning evidence of a long term abuse - maybe it is a jilted wife banging the former ball boy (and a kid that basically grew up in her house - gross) and making a tape to protect them both in the future if Bernie finds out and gets pissed. WE DON'T KNOW.
3rd accuser - same type of issues. BEFORE talking to police and even though they had no prior relationship the 3rd accuser talks to Bobby Davis on the telephone numerous times (AGAIN reported at the bottom of the story so we'll not pay it any attention). WHY? Maybe for moral support before he comes forward. BUT, MAYBE it was to get a detailed description of the interior of the Fine residence. The story claims that this 3rd victim had a detailed description to give, and uses that to corroborate his claims of being molested at the home during an overnight stay - WHICH THE VICTIM'S FATHER SWEARS NEVER HAPPENED. MAYBE #3 is another victim and Bernie Fine is a monster. MAYBE he made the whole thing up knowing what a hard-on Fitzpatrick has for this case and hoping he can leverage this on his behalf somewhere down the line on his own case. WE DON'T KNOW - and none of this is conclusive evidence. I WANT REAL (untainted) EVIDENCE. WHERE IS IT?
