Detroit Lions' head coach Matt Patricia is in some hot water after a sexual assault allegation resurfaced. Detroit News reported Patricia was indicted, but not tried, in a 1996 sexual assault case, and some fans are calling for his head. Others think Patricia shouldn't have to answer for a crime he was never convicted of. Someone shouldn't lose their job over a dismissed case from over 20 years ago. What do you think? 🏈

The NFL has a reputation for being lenient on sexual assaulters, but that stain can be removed if the Lions do the right thing. They can't be associated with someone who potentially assaulted a woman, no matter how long it's been. The league needs a public image makeover and it starts with this. The team needs to show they care and must fire Matt Patricia.

Allegations do not equal convictions. The case against Patricia was dismissed and it shouldn't damn him to unemployment when he has done nothing wrong. In this country, everyone is innocent until proven guilty. Patricia was never convicted of a crime and the Lions are standing behind their guy. Patricia should keep his job.
