One of the more disquieting (and there are many) passages in a recorded conversation with recipient Tyreek Hill in Kansas City, which was released in April, was the allegation that his fiancée had beaten her 3-year-old son in the chest.
Hill did not deny such a statement immediately, which is the natural one Reaction of virtually every other father would be if they were wrongly accused of such a barbaric act. Instead, he wiped it off first, claiming Espinal had hit the child, sometimes with a belt.
Later in the recording, Hill repeatedly said he had "done nothing".
Well, Hill met up with media Sunday in Kansas City and admitted he punched his son in the chest, but that's not the way everyone thinks (AP Photo / Charlie Riedel) " class = "JsEnabled_Op (0) JsEnabled_Bg (n) Trsdu (.42s) Bgr (nr) Bgz (cv) StretchedBox W (100%) H (100%) ie-7_H (a)" itemprop = "url" style = " background-image: url (https://s.yimg.com/ny/api/res/1.2/f3zibhjdm4FwaXT_a_S3Zw–~A/YXBwaWQ9aGlnaGxhbmRlcjtzbT0xO3c9ODAw/https://media-mbst-pub-ue1.s3.amazonaws.com/ creatr-images / 2019-07 / 84b81530-b25d-11e9-afdf-aa14b18f2fd8); "src =" https://s.yimg.com/g/images/spaceball.gif "data-reactid =" 25 "/>
The NFL ruled that there was insufficient evidence to support Tyreek Hill for alleged child maltreatment was examined. (AP)
"I can not really argue with that, but beating my son in the chest, that would probably mean that I'm teaching boxing to my son because we have boxing gloves at home, and ours Son … loves Iron Man, Aquaman, and he says, "Daddy, come on, come on," Hill told reporters.
"So that's it, man," Hill continued. "Sometimes things are taken out of context when feelings and emotions are involved. But I'm not going to go into all that right now. So, Hill now admits he beat his 3-year-old, but is it okay because it's the context of a boxing workout in which the 3-year-old takes body punches from an adult male?
] Does anyone believe this story?
The only thing more ridiculous than Hill's that this is a reasonable defense for the charge of beating his 3-year-old son in the chest is that the NFL apparently bought it.
Hill will not be suspended Hill has no real problems with the League and is ready to sign and sign a new, rich contract with the Chiefs.
The NFL conducted an investigation, but concluded that she could not find out who was telling the truth until additional information was available.
Like many of his disciplinary decisions, the NFL's behavioral policy is an exercise in insanity ds. There is no consistency. It was always Pandora's box.
But Hill is not the first to claim he did not do whatever the league said. Nearly every player ever in trouble denies the charge. Violence. Sexual assault. PEDs. What ever. Some of them even had viable arguments.
The NFL never had a problem determining who said the truth or not. It never had a problem, not just to call cops, even in difficult cases where he said, she said. If anything, it went too far and was too arbitrary.
The League spent millions of dollars denying the existence of science so it could conclude that the Patriots had emptied footballs that never turned out to be empty (even in the media false stories) served as a smear campaign). She then ignored statements made by Tom Brady and others, opted for lies, and fought to a federal appeals court to uphold a guilty verdict.
But just at Hill do you believe this nonsense?  You bought this incriminating tale of someone who had already pleaded guilty to domestic violence, had his son taken to court in court, and the same son had broken his arm – threatening his fiancé in exactly the same fashion?
"He's scared of you," Espinal told Hill about her son. "And you say he respects you, but it's not respect."
"He respects me," Hill said, as if a 3-year-old would be capable of such a thing.
] "He's afraid of you," Espinal said.
"You must be scared of me too, bitch," he said. "That's why you can not keep a [expletive] man."
How on earth is Tyreek Hill the type the NFL trusts after all these suspensions and controversies? Can we pay Ted Wells $ 4 million to uncover this mystery? Leave it to law enforcement. It was a bad idea for Roger Goodell to play sheriff from the start.
Nonetheless, Goodell has taken on this role through thick and thin and believes that the general public does not tolerate these kinds of stories. He is right.
That does not mean fans of the team in question care about it. They just want their club to win. Everyone in Kansas City knows that a Super Bowl with Hill is much more likely than without. For that reason, Hill thanked the fans for their love and support in all these so-called adversities. That's why the League felt that a centralized system was needed.
Almost on cue, Chiefs CEO Clark Hunt was left without residue on Sunday, "Hunt said.

Yes, that's certainly a way to describe it.
If this is the course of the NFL that is changing and accepting any outrageous rejection even for the most outrageous crimes, then it should have the courage to announce it.
And it should apologize to all the people the league did not believe before Tyreek Hill came along, and somehow lower the general IQ value of the league office.
"Roger Goodell and hi They did their thing with us," said Hill. "They dug in and found out all the facts. I am also thankful for these people. "
Well, that's nice to hear.
