FWIW, I never followed this case, and I'm not upset about the signing. But I do think WtW had a point about people excusing Cox's actions just because he's on our team now. I'm willing to believe that Cox made a mistake, no matter what actually happened, that he's paid some penalty for it by basically losing a year of his career, and now he has a chance to prove that he's not a bad dude and to earn his career back. I hope he plays well for us and makes the team.
I'm not a "fan" of anything. I am just stating the facts as well as saying I'm not bandwagoning onto the guy because we signed him. When he got acquitted I started a research session out of boredom and I personally believe the system worked in his favor on top of him proving that there was reasonable doubt and a lack of evidence of any kind to suggest anything beyond consensual sex with her.
I think the signing is one hell of a steal for us as the guy will do anything and everything to succeed and now and should he screw up even once in the smallest of ways we can kick him to the curb and say we tried.
