Why did it take a year?

Postby donovan » Sun Feb 03, 2019 4:08 pm

This is not a commentary, just a question. Why was the punishment meted out a year after the incident? There must be more to this story.

"No, no!" said the Queen. "Sentence first–verdict afterward."
"Stuff and nonsense!" said Alice "The idea of having the sentence first!"
"Hold your tongue!" said the Queen, turning purple.
"I won't!" said Alice.
"Off with her head!" the Queen shouted at the top of her voice."

1....domestic disturbance....no charges were filed. But recently there was a woman who posted an audio saying that she had been abused,,,that was it....

I don't think it was "punishment" per se for that first offense...yes, he also got caught with marijuana...but he was on a short leash and he was on the verge of being cut anyway. Taggart did not need much at all to release him...there had been a buzz for six weeks. And now he had a plausible reason.

Back in December Deondre announced he was weighing his options about leaving the team....Taggart got tired of waiting...cut him. I'm pretty sure that is the story...we have been expecting it on Warchant. Taggart is bringing in a transfer QB from Louisville and a QB commit....time to let a guy go who wouldn't let his team know whether he was staying or not....now it is not.

My thought is that Deondre was through at FSU as a playing QB...he knew it, Willy T knew it.

Deondre made it easier for his schollie to be released....

It just looks like Taggart is cleaning up after the guy before him. Cutting loose the guys who didn’t buy in.
