One of Deshaun Watson’s accusers has come forward in an interview with Sports Illustrated to talk about what went down. It’s not looking good for the Texans star, but one thing should be clear: This is either the greatest black ball attempt of all time from Houston ownership, or the Texans were led out of the tunnel by Bill Cosby.
The massage therapist, going by the alias “Mary,” says Watson’s refusal to apologize is what bothers her.

Well, if Watson is hypothetically innocent, then he’s acting exactly how he should. If he hasn’t done anything wrong, he shouldn’t apologize to anyone and he should deal with the cases as they come. The last thing an innocent man looking for a trade should do is become bogged down in legal procedures for crimes he didn’t commit. He’d want this whole thing to go away as quickly as possible.
“The one thing I keep thinking about is, he’s about to get traded to another place,” Mary (the therapist) says. “What if he goes to Atlanta or California or anywhere else? He would have a whole new community of massage therapists to target.”
Apparently Mary was told Watson insisted on being covered by a towel rather than a standard sheet. She described the entire experience as “unlike anything I’ve experienced from any other client,” according to Sports Illustrated’s report.
There have already been 19 cases filed against Watson, and all of them should be taken seriously. However, if proven innocent, the Houston Texans will look like they put this whole case in motion because of Watson’s trade demands. At first, that sounded like a big conspiracy theory, but it would grow some legs if the Texans star is exonerated. We’ll keep our eyes peeled on the how this whole thing develops. Either way, it’s about to get ugly.
