CLEVELAND — Cleveland Browns fans are some of the best in the entire National Football League. That includes the team's loyal group of female fans.
Robyn Lockner is ready to move on from the Deshaun Watson saga. "I’m tired of hearing about Deshaun Watson," she says.
Lockner is the owner of the Cleveland Browns Women’s Group with roughly 6,000 followers. She says when she heard the Browns traded for Watson in March, she was shocked.
"It feels like a slap in the face," Lockner added.
While Carrie Miller agrees with Lockner, she takes it a step further. "I think that Deshaun does have a problem. I would love to see him get help for that problem," Miller stated.
Meanwhile Dee Ray understands what it feels like to be on the victim's side, telling 3News that she has dealt with molestation, rape and other horrific things. However, Ray says she doesn't think that Watson has been treated fairly.
"There are three sides to this story: His side, her side, and the truth," she says.
On Tuesday, Watson settled with 20 of the 24 civil lawsuits accusing him of sexual misconduct. And while he's not admitting to any truth because his settling, it does feel like a step closer to the end of the legal battles involving the Browns quarterback.
"I, for one, am happy," says Ray. "I want to talk about Deshaun in the football spotlight. I think he is going to be great."
Miller struggles with the scandal but adds, "it’s a team sport and you don’t have to root for just one player."
And Lockner sums it all up with one line: "Do what you need to do. Take care of your legal business and play ball."
