Matt Araiza was a punter for the Buffalo Bills until a 17-year-old girl accused him of sexually assaulting her at a party.
Araiza denied all allegations, but the Bills still decided to cut him from the roster.
Araiza, who was nicknamed the “Punt God” and went to college at San Diego State, was drafted for his talent. His punt was only 16 yards behind the 1969 NFL record, which still stands at 98 yards.
While Araiza lost a promising career in the NFL because of the accusation, information has now been released that he wasn’t even at the party when the alleged rape occurred.
According to reports, there are videos of the accuser having sex at the same party with several different men.
Keith Malinak went on "Pat Gray Unleashed" to discuss.
“This guy has lost his job, his livelihood, his reputation. Will he ever be employed in the NFL?” Malinak asks.
Pat Gray believes that there should be repercussions for false accusations, “and they should be severe.”
Malinak suggests that a false accusation should warrant the same sentence that the accused rapist might have gotten.
“If it’s proven that you fabricated this, goodbye. Whatever the sentence would have been, put it in front of a judge and let him decide.”
