    WOULD they, or SHOULD they? Because for the Lions those are frequently two very different questions with very different answers.

    Would they have? With Quinn stumping for him, probably. The Lions have never been terribly bothered by off-field shenanigans with their front office and coaching staffs (players are an entirely different matter and a little hypocritical to be honest).

    Should they have? Hell no. This is already a nightmare, and the more that details emerge, the worse it gets. And if anyone else comes forward, look out.

      They would* have rightfully hired him anyways.

      This isn’t a PR nightmare, really. It can be if the victim comes forward. Due to how that seems unlikely... not an issue.

        It's not a nightmare. It would hardly have been a story had the Lions known about the indictment beforehand. Then a simple statement stating, yes we knew about the allegation, we also knew the case was dismissed and we followed it up with some investigation and we found and believe the Matt was and is innocent.

          Had Patricia been convicted of committing a crime, this becomes a valid poll...

            Why are you so certain they would have hired him in the first place?

            They failed to do their due diligence and could very well have hired a man who committed a violent sexual assault. So now that they know that there is a possibility, they shouldn't fully investigate this? At this point it's oh well, our bad. Hey what about these red wings?

            Those who are saying, well he wasn't found guilty so he's innocent are fucking ignorant as all get out. They sure as hell wouldn't be saying that if it was thier daughter or thier wife that this happened. What do you tell your wife, your daughter- well hay, you chickened out of the trial, so he must be innocent.

              I hear more people say he has not been found guilty of anything, therefore, he must not be guilty and just because he was indicted, does not mean he is guilty.
              I long for a Lions team that is consistently competitive.

                I wholeheartedly disagree that this isn’t a PR nightmare. This completely changes media perception of Matt Patricia.

                  That is actually fact. He was accused of "something" - that is all we know.

                      No.....he was INDICTED for violent sexual assault. That is not the same as being accused. People looked at the evidence, they made a decision that the evidence supported the accusation. That is a significant difference. Indicted is not the same as being accused, but you ignore that tiny little fact.

                        Of course they would've hired him.

                        Patricia was the guy the Lions wanted from the word go. The other interviews were for show. The interviews with Patricia were about Patricia evaluating the Lions, not the other way around.

                          I 100% agree Patricia was their man but that was without knowing that he was once arrested for a violent rape.

                          The way the case was dismissed it didn't do anything to vindicate Patricia. Yes all charges were dropped and he avoided a trial and jail time but there's no way to know if he's truly guilty or innocent.

                          The women didn't come out and say that he didn't do it she just didn't show up for court. I've went to court to appeal speeding tickets and the cop never showed up thus voiding the ticket. It doesn't mean I didn't do it.

                            Bingo. There was evidence. Victims drop pursuing a trial often because it is re-traumatizing. Doesn't mean he is guilty. But imho it looks bad - and therefore it absolutely is a PR nigjtmare.

                              Aggravated does not necessarily mean violent, dwt. It has to do with the physical/mental state of the victim and/or number of aggressors.
                              The Detroit Lions... where eleven men on the field is merely a suggestion.
