Go on record. Who still wants Watson?

Sure...

Virtually all of the plaintiffs are from Houston (1 flown in from ATL).  Again, most all are trained/licensed massage-therapists upon whom deep background checks have been completed.

As big as Houston is the trained/licensed massage-therapist community is small -- and they talk.

Watson gradually worked his way through a meaningful portion of that community...

...at some point 2 or 3 of the women were comparing notes and were similarly mortified at their amazingly similar experiences....

...and collectively they hired representation (Buzbee).

Between the masage-therapists and Buzbee word hit the street and simpatico therapists naturally coalesced with their brethren...

...it's quite simple really.

That answer none of my questions.. And all you did was come up with a story on what you think could have happened.... At no point has this answered why use the same lawyer, how he delegates compensation or why not all go to the police and try a criminal case before a civil suit.. Maybe a few examples of high profile bad men with multiple accusers cases going this way??

But if you want to believe the massage community of a city with 2.3 million residents is that close and coordinated have at it...

Sure it did...

...that you're unwilling to acknowledge that the gathering of cases within a close-knit legal situation is SOP is on you, you're naive...

Question:  Do you believe it's possible the plaintiffs are telling the truth?

Yes or no?

PS...compensation will be awarded/distributed on a case-by-case basis -- it's not up to Buzbee's discretion.

Where is your example of this happening before..

Weissman did most of his damage in Hollywood CA with girls in similar profession and circumstances.. They are using different lawyers and firms to sue him.. Why is this case different??

Yes.. in some cases no in others...

PS.. How does that work and who decides that if the lawyer is usually  the one asking for each and every client what they are looking for in damages?..

I’d be very surprised if even 1/4 of the accusers were active licensed massage therapists by the state of Texas. More likely most of them are Instagram models that are borderline escorts that offer massages as a cover for sex. It’s a pretty common ruse to avoid being a full on prostitute.

It's "Weinstein"....pal.

Weinstein's transgressions took place over decades and were bi-coastal/multi-state...completely different situation.

If the complaints are even remotely accurate (and as it goes to location it's very likely they are) Watson's predatory behaviour was limited to 15-months or less and highly concentrated in the Houston area. 

[EDIT: The way things are going if cases in NYC and Miami start surfacing it won't be a surprise.]

It makes perfect sense a small handful of aggrieved/licensed masseuses would take the lead and once they did, others would follow...

This is a VERY important point you raise there.

If the early cases filed (3 or 4) are indicative of the trend within the larger pool of 24...

...you will be wrong.

That said, you might be right.

Wessiman , Weinstein, whatever..

Now time of incidents is the determining factor... okay...

Alot of narratives and alternative opinions on both sides of this.. With nobody having a clue on what really happened.. 

Plain and simple this is new unheard of situation.. The way this came out and the timing is highly suspect.. And the way the plaintiffs chose to find justice is questionable... Whether guilty or innocence Watson deserves to take a hit for being dumb with his personal life and the Panthers should move on and not deal with the head ache... But it still doesn't make this situation normal or easily explained like you're trying to do...

We can keep arguing and assume a bunch of things we don’t know or we can just wait and let the system run through these cases. The number of victims seems way too high for Watson to be innocent, but regardless it doesn’t look like the Panthers are waiting around to find out. Hopefully we will draft a solid rookie and as far as Watson goes, I hope the truth comes out one way or another.

The "situation" definitely isn't "normal".

That said, personally I don't find at all difficult to understand.

This website/article links to a number of the actual complaints in pdf form.

Through that site, 8 of the actual complaints are accessible on Al Gore's internets...

The pdf's/complaints are generally short, about 8-pages each. 

Of the 8 practitioners, 6 are licensed, and 2 are not. 

You're prediction was 75% or more of the complaints would be from unlicensed practitioners...

...the reality of it is 75% of the filed cases ARE by licensed practitioners.

Put that in your pipe and smoke it, pal...
