One such event happened the day of the AFC Championship game. I heard someone say, a guy like Kraft doesn't go there unless it is something he can't get elsewhere.

    Kraft will deny, deny, deny, settle out of court, and continue to deny. He doesn't want those video's to be shown at trial.
    He can't "settle" out of court. This isn't a civil proceeding. He'll have to plead no contest or something to that effect.

    There are lots of people who claim 100% innocence and later plead guilty. It's posturing more than anything.
    From a PR aspect, once the story came out that's the big news.
    In the biggest story he's charged, and he denies it 100%.
    Whatever happens from here will be relatively small news. The vast majority of the public will remember he was charged no matter what(and will likely have determined his innocence/guilt no matter what happens from here).
    I don't think many people take his denial that seriously, and I think an even smaller number of people will really care that pleads guilty after initially saying he's not guilty.

    I mean who knows what will happen but I imagine there are 2 outcomes.

    1) A quick no contest plea and poof (The legal case) itís gone. Yeah he denied and there is video so the liar thing will follow him around.

    2) A mea culpa where he reverses course and admits it in a vetted PR statement. (On a busy newsday perhaps or on a Friday dump) And again quickly pays the fine.

    I donít see him leaving Florida and never returning. I mean if we are talking public image that doesnít look good either. And also at anytime the video could be leaked....

    Re: Bob Kraft arrested for soliciting prostitution

    There's no point in him avoiding Florida. He's going to pay a fine and be done with it from a legal perspective. I assume he'll also get some sort of suspension from the NFL like the Colts owner. His reputation, while maybe not quite "ruined", is never going to be the same. I suspect the harshest sentence he'll receive is the public shaming.

    I wonder if the thing he couldnít get was anonymity. As long he wasnít pulling up in a stretch limo could probably pull it off.

    Maybe it was misguided but it was close to home, cheap and it got the job done.

    The police surveillance report said that he was in there around 11:00am. Plenty of time for him to get to KC for the game.

    If that's the case then why the 100% denial? If he was going to do that, then I'd expect instead of a denial we'd have heard from his camp "we have no comment at this time and will let the legal process proceed." It sure sounds like he'll have a defense but we'll see. We might not know until draft time which is when the hearing will be

    The lowest acceptable payroll amount for ownership to show they are not greedy pigs is 15 million more than they are currently paying. No matter what that currently is.

    Kraft has officially pleaded not guilty and is requesting a non-jury trial.

    Strange how, no matter the taboo, the smart answer is always "legalize, tax, and regulate."

    And strange how we always choose to throw billions of dollars into doing the exact opposite.
