Oh ... so "alleged cases of rape" - reported on the same media that vowed to destroy him.

For some people - they are cats and the media is like milk. Lap it up buddy. You just believe everything you read.

Interesting point - Ben Teo - a top, top bloke - was forced to leave Australia BECAUSE OF THE MEDIA which reported he raped a woman before it was proven in court. Even after the case was dismissed, he would have people (probably like you) yelling "rapist" at him.

Congratulations - you're part of the herd.

Another interesting point - Hayne's case was settled out of court - a very strong indication that the woman's story was garbage.
You don't settle if it is garbage. Settling essentially admits that there is some fact to the allegation but both parties concede it is more of a risk to take it further where details will be revealed publicly.

if someone accuses me of a rape that i didn't commit, then i would fight like hell to prove my innocence. it would be even more true, if i was in Haynes shoes where I am a public figure with means (I would do everything in my power to stop the person making these false allegations from getting a cent)

settling his case actually makes things worse for his criminal trial as well IMO, because while the settlement won't be able to be used against him, the entire jury pool would likely know this happened and it will be a case of where theres smoke ...

FTR, if anyone is believing the hype the media have placed on someone it is YOU ... the media have been sucking Hayne off his entire career, making every little thing Hayne has done look better than it really was.

Why would you settle if you were fully innocent? Wouldn't you want to clear your name?

Anyone who draws an inference based on a matter settling without knowing any details of the case is not worth listening to in the first place.

Matters settle for a number of reasons on a case by case basis. To claim a matter settled because of a certain reason without being a party to the matter or knowing the parties reasons is comical.

Ever had any legal battles? Exhausting and takes immense emotional toll. Let's see ... how many false accusations have been made against men lately, and proven to be false - Geoffrey Rush, John Jarrett. These men are now destroyed and the women - still anonymous - walks away scott free. No charges, no jail - nothing.

All of which, regardless how you spin it, is conjecture. All of what people who disagree with you have said is conjecture. I’m fairly sure you must be smart enough to see that people, including yourself, are all affected by media to an extent.

Im also interested to see this article you claim about a journalist threatening to bring Hayne down. Can you produce a link?

Just Google Paul Kent Jarryd Hayne - you'll find plenty of stories about the "fued" between Kent and Hayne.

The "fued" revolved around Kent blaming the poor performance of the Titans on Hayne (as if one player can bring a whole team down) - and when everything came to a head, it became clear that the majority of the team weren't in agreement with Neil Henry - and it had NOTHING to do with Hayne.

Kent was exposed as a complete fraud. Hayne called him out. Kent vowed to seek revenge.

Tbh, if somebody accused me of rape, I'd want to clear my name. Why would you settle and have that hanging over you.

Yes we can all recall what happened with Hayne and the Titans. They were going better than they had in years until he turned up. It's obvious beyond any doubt whatsoever that 1 player was bringing the whole team down. I'm actually gobsmacked there's someone who thinks anything but this.

Now can you link us to your claims or not? Saying "google it yourself" is not an answer.

That's your decision. Others may decide it is worth avoiding the ongoing court process. There are Also a whole range of other reasons. In my view it is best not to infer guilt or Innocence either way

I honestly cant see why anyone would if they were truly innocent. If it was a trivial offence i could understand it, but not something so serious. I wouldnt have a clue if Hayne has done it or not, but leaving it hanging the question marks over him will never go away.
