I can assure you, that isn't what took place with Patrick Kane-People rush to defend the athlete they think they know and cared little about the facts because their hockey enjoyment might be infringed upon. Patrick Kane was not charged with a crime, hopefully because he didn't do it because that means a woman wasn't raped. That didn't matter. What that case showed was that a real ugly side of people\fans comes out when one of their beloved gets accused of something.
As for Manziel-No I didn't. But I guess I tend to side with battered women because women who get hit don't really lie about it as much as people want to think they do. Shame on me for that.
