    From nypost.com:

    New Jersey cops are investigating a woman's claim that she was raped at the home of star Jets defensive back Kerry Rhodes after meeting him and another man at a Manhattan nightclub, The Post has learned.

    The woman, a Canadian tourist, told NYPD cops that two men raped her late Friday or early Saturday in Morristown, NJ, where the 26-year-old Jet safety has a town house, New York law-enforcement sources said.

    Rhodes, in a statement issued through a Jets spokesman, said: "I briefly talked with police on Saturday regarding an incident that allegedly took place at my home. The police confirmed to me that I am not the subject of this allegation."

    Morristown Police Lt. David Ackerman said, "It's an ongoing investigation," and refused to comment further when asked about Rhodes.

    Morristown police and Morris County Sheriff's Department officers visited Rhodes' town house twice Saturday, neighbors said.

    That morning, cops drove two men -- neither of whom were in handcuffs -- away from the home in a police car and dropped them off back there several hours later, a neighbor said.

    The 6-foot-3, 220-pound Rhodes, a native of Bessemer, Ala., who was drafted out of the University of Louisville in 2005 by the Jets, signed a $33 million, five-year contract extension with the team last year. Asked about Rhodes last night, a Jets spokesman said the club was "gathering information."

    The NYPD sources said the Canadian tourist visited the 1st Precinct station house in lower Manhattan Saturday afternoon to make a complaint.

    The woman told police that she had gone out Friday night with a female friend to a Manhattan nightclub, where they met two men, one of whom was Rhodes, the sources said. The woman did not know who Rhodes was at the time, but her girlfriend did, sources said.

    The woman said she left the club with Rhodes and the other man and went with them to a Morristown residence, according to the sources.

    There, she told cops, two men raped her, sources said.

    Because the alleged sex assault occurred in Morristown, NYPD officers drove the woman to the Morristown Police Department to make her complaint there, according to sources. The woman then was taken to a local hospital to undergo a rape-kit examination, the sources said.

    In addition to his football career, Rhodes has modeled and appeared in two movies: "Queen of Media," about New York DJ Wendy Williams, and an independent film about relationship dilemmas called "Misunderstandings," in which he had a steamy hot-tub scene. His nickname is "Hollywood."

    Why would they prohibit the word r@pe? I understand banning profane swear words, but r@pe is a term that actually defines something meaningful.

    Last draft I couldn't even write the word gamec0cks. LOL.

    If only the moderated word list could decipher context.

    Anyhow, I feel bad for that girl. If Rhodes actually did this, or allowed this, he should be locked up with the worst of criminals.

    At the risk of appearing to come out in favor of aberrant behavior, what do women who go home with men they meet in bars expect?

    Milk and cookies?

    Are you saying that she should have expected to raped? 

    I expect that she probably thought she had some say in the matter.

    Not at all.

    I'm saying that an expected occurrence after this kind of hook-up would be sexual intercourse. Usually what happens in a case like this is things get out of hand and somebody either changes their mind at the last minute or alters their morality after the fact (like for instance when they wake up relatively sober in a strange place). We don't know as yet what actually took place, so this is all speculation, but if I was to go . . .  say . . .   to Sea World, for instance, I would look kind of like an idiot if I wanted to sue the park because Shamu got me wet.

    Okay . . .  well . . .  maybe that's not the best example, but it's an interesting ethical question: If I pick up a drunk woman in a bar and she agrees to have sex with me, and then she wakes up the next day not drunk and believes she's been raped, what is the crime?

    That is not what you wrote. At least have the integrity to back up your original statements or retract them. Don't act now like you meant something else. It is cowardly.

    Your original statements were to blame the alleged victim. You even expressed the thought that it might not be the best thing to do (blaming the victim.)

    To answer your newly created ethical proposition, yes, you would look foolish if you went to Sea World and tried to sue them had you gotten wet just as the alleged victim would be if she went there with the reasonable expectation that she might have sex. Now, if you were in the first row and Shamu jumped out of the pool and crushed your foot, then you would have something to complain about. Just as any alleged victim would if a violent act was perpetrated on them against their will.  

    As to your second newly created proposition, it is a he said/she said issue and if it happened as you say, then you didn't commit any crime obviously. It doesn't mean the police and DA will believe you.

    The first post doesn't blame anybody. It merely points out a reasonable expectation. With almost no evidence to go on, my initial guess would be that there is no victim.

    Do  you get paid extra for putting words in peoples mouths and then feeling superior about it?

    I hate the Jets. Ok now that is out of the way, I have to say I will not rejoice or even wish this were true because to many false R@pe charges have been lobbied against atheletes. I will wait to see if this is true or a stupid girl who all of a sudden got a great idea about getting some money. In the end if it is true that crime is wrong in any situation and he should pay.  Go Pats!!

    Thank you. There is no indication Rhodes was even there, by the way.
    There was a great SI article on athletes blowing all their money nad/or being targets for women. Let;s get real here...there are many women out here looking to sue one of these guys, or get knocled up and sue for paternity...the NBA is the worst. Sorry if that offends some of you, but truth is truth.

    I am sure you are one of the people who immediately jumped on the Duke lacrosee "abuse" case, too. You know, the one where each of the innocent players had to pay millions in legal fees, the college had to shut down a program, just because some ho plays the race card and tries to milk millions from the system? Whoops, am I being politically incorrect here???

    Hey Mike,

    The guy is clearly an idiot. None of us know exactly what happened, but we will. My guess is she tries to "settle" and they extort a few bucks out of some guys just to keep her quiet. We will find out she works as a "dancer" or for some "escort service" and was merely looking to share Shakespearian ideas and have coffee. But let's hold off judgement until facts are in, and even then, who are we to judge?

    I hate Kobe, too, but that set-up in Denver a few years ago was incredible. Did the mother of that "innocent victim" get the millions she sought?

    Newest Jet QB/GQ model Mark Sanchez was arrested for #rape at USC 3 years ago. LAPD dropped the case based on lack of evidence... He had to attend a #rape awareness class at USC though.

    Re: Rhodes Accused of #rape

    There's a lot of presumption here that the woman is lying, that the woman just wanted lots of money, that she turns tricks as a professional.  Hmmm.  I think a number of guys read into a story what they want to fantasize.  No, I have no idea why two men, one a pro athlete, took one woman home from a bar.  Nor do I know what the r@pe kit at the hospital found -- tearing?  Multiple partners?  But the cops are so far still playing this one straight up.  That does not look too good for Kerry Rhodes.

    What a context joke.  I can't say that BB could sn@tch a player at #34, but I can say the player was grabbed at #34.  Don't I feel more moral already?

    I am sure that I am wrong, primarily because I am not that smart.

         To All:

         Kerry Rhodes has been cleared of charges in this matter:

         From the Morris County Prosecutor's Office:  "This statement is to correct misleading media reports that Jets player Kerry Rhodes is the target of a criminal investigation, specifically r@pe, by Morris County law enforcement authorities. Mr. Rhodes is not the target of any criminal investigation. Rumors and media reports to the contrary are untrue. Information which is being reported through the media that Mr. Rhodes is the subject of a r@pe investigation is factually untrue and wholly inaccurate and has the capacity to unfairly damage the reputation of Mr. Rhodes.”

    Well, that's a relief for him then.

    Oh, and incidentally, dogg, the poster in question does appear to have a certain amount of education; but I am troubled by this business of firing off the preconceived response whether it is actually applicable or not.

    Of course, nobody in here would do a thing like that.

    Would they?

    Yep, a woman who willingly goes to a man's house with two men after a night of drinking and partying should expect sexual play to be in the mix. PrairieMike has the right idea. Of course, that's why I never laid a drunk woman.

    Even if a girl goes home with a guy she meets planing on sleeping with him it is her choice to say no if she changes her mind. Just because whoever did this thought she knew what she was gettign herself into doesnt give them the right to force themselves up inside of her. I have two sisters and am about to get married and if any man put his hands on any female i love i would put him in the ground without question. Even convicts in jail have no tolerance for #rapest. If you #rape a person and go to jail they will beat you with in a inch of your life and if scum bag crackheads can figure out that its not ok to do this kind of thing then anyone should. Rhodes was cleared of all charges and thats good for him but i am honestly a little put off by the response this story got on this forum. This girl says she was #raped and some peole first response is to attack her? seriously? Maybe she did lie maybe she didnt but assuming she is just out for money is bogus. Yes it happens no one is saying it doesnt happen but just because some women try and pull a fast one doesnt men they all do.
