Should be interesting to see what he does have to do/pay. Standard community "cash-in" rate is $10/hour, which would amount to only a $1,000 fine if the judge approved it - which is totally discretionary. Doesn't seem like much of a penalty at all for even people with lots less resources than Krapt. And the judge has to approve any community service done, so he won't be able to perform it at Mar-a-lago or "life-guarding" out on Jupiter Island. I'm hoping the judge will make these high rollers do something really humiliating - and maybe, but not necessarily, useful.

I suppose that volunteering with the Girl Scouts is out of the question.

Update: "Kraft also donated more than $1 million to Trump’s inaugural committee."
It's a strange country where spending $500 on a hooker is illegal, but spending more than $1 million on a POTUS is not.

While I don't think what he did should be illegal in the first place, it is funny for somebody like Kraft to get busted for the same type of charge they hang on the riff-raff. It'll be interesting to see if his pal Trump, who probably told Kraft he was welcome to "grab them by the pussy" has any pull with the local Dolphin-fan courts.
Kraft, 77, is requesting a non-jury trial.

Comments:
Waiving a jury trial. Doesn't want to go before a jury of 12 Dolphins fans.
He was just there to get his nails done.
Just because he did it doesn’t mean he’s guilty

Well, see, here's his defense...
According to Florida statutes:
“Sexual activity” means oral, anal, or vaginal penetration by, or union with, the sexual organ of another;  anal or vaginal penetration of another by any other object;  or the handling or fondling of the sexual organ of another for the purpose of masturbation;  however, the term does not include acts done for bona fide medical purposes."

He's going to say he has a medical condition (perpetual limp dick) and that the masseuse was conducting medical treatment. :lol:

Stormy Daniels used Trump as a job referral, Bill Clinton wasn’t invited; Monica Lewinsky’s application was denied even though Hillary praised her abilities.

Odell Beckham Jr. traded to the Browns for No. 17, third-round pick and Jabrill Peppers

Baker Mayfield to Odell Beckham Jr.? Now, that’s something to feel dangerous about.

Beckham worked out with Mayfield and his longtime friend and former college teammate Jarvis Landry last offseason at USC, and now he’ll get to do it for real.

The Browns pulled off a blockbuster trade with the Giants for the former disgruntled receiver, who wore out his welcome in New York, with first-year head coach Pat Shurmur and others last season. The Browns gave up the No. 17 overall pick, the third-round pick they got from the Patriots for Danny Shelton, and safety Jabrill Peppers, the Browns’ No. 25 overall pick in the 2017 draft.
Words not written about the Browns in a long, long time:
The trade catapults the Browns into elite offense territory, what with Mayfield, Beckham, Landry, Kareem Hunt, Nick Chubb and Antonio Callaway. In Cleveland, the three-time Pro Bowler will be reunited not only with Landry, his former LSU teammates, but receivers coach Adam Henry, who coached him in college and with the Giants. Landry has been lobbying hard for Beckham since training camp last summer....
More words not written about the Browns in a long, long time:
It also makes the Browns a strong contender to win the AFC North and possibly even make a Super Bowl run.
Not sure about the trade, itself, but some are saying that OBJ's pay is a bargain for the Browns.

    AAF players left stranded with nowhere to live

    Many of the players who signed on with the Alliance of American Football were in temporary housing arranged by the league, and when the league pulled the plug they had nowhere to go.

    Understandably, players who were signing on for a 10-week season at relatively modest salaries didn’t buy houses or sign year-long leases in the cities where they were playing, and some of those players say the hotels and apartments the AAF arranged for them kicked them out just as soon as the AAF canceled its season.

    Rich Ohrnberger, a former NFL player who was working as a radio analyst in the AAF, wrote on Twitter that “Players in Memphis came back to their hotels after news came down, and had their personal items waiting in the lobby. Kicked out of their lodgings.”

    Memphis fullback Anthony Manzo-Lewis wrote on Twitter that he had already been kicked out of his hotel room and had no idea where to go. Teammate Brandon Silvers replied that he had a few more days at his Airbnb and would let Manzo-Lewis crash with him.

    Ohrnberger also wrote that the players who suffered injuries are now on the hook for their own medical expenses going forward. Gionni Paul of the Salt Lake Stallions wrote on Twitter that he’s concerned after breaking his arm in the AAF. Some players indicated that they’re looking into filing workers’ comp claims.

    That the AAF is folding so abruptly, with so little consideration for the players, does not speak well for chairman Tom Dundon or founders Charlie Ebersol and Bill Polian. The league needed a better plan in place for how to survive — and how to handle it if the league couldn’t survive.
    Bastards.

    Bastards, yes, but still the article seems to have some unnecessary drama. The players were getting $7K a game, with paid living expenses, and are all somewhat adultish. Are they really going to be totally on the street because there are no hotels, airlines, car rentals, friends, families, they can access?

    True, I won't give if one of them panhandles me, but it still sucks to return to your hotel and find your stuff in the lobby. If it's true that no long term plan is in place for injuries other than worker's comp, that's really bad.

    They stole my comment in their 1st phrase:
    AAF officially files for bankruptcy

    To no surprise at all, the defunct Alliance of American Football has filed for bankruptcy.

    Via Front Office Sports, the Chapter 7 filing — which happens when a business is completing liquidated its assets and going out of business — lists more than $11 million in assets, and more than $48 million in liabilities. The league also has $536,160.68 in cash.

    The assets undoubtedly include football equipment that could be auctioned, including official helmets and jerseys. Based on the league’s refusal to release players from their contracts for possible employment by the CFL, the AAF likely has attached a value to those contracts, treating them as among the total assets.

    Through bankruptcy, the assets will be sold and the various creditors will receive a portion (sometimes very small) of the money owed to them. The broader question is whether the creditors will be able to pierce through the veil of individual protection generated by a formal business structure and attack the personal assets of those who organized the league.
