It was reported on Friday that New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft has been charged with two counts of soliciting prostitution in a huge investigation regarding a human trafficking ring.
This is earth-shattering news and the police claim to have video evidence to support these charges. However, a spokesperson for Kraft responded to the charges and denied that Kraft had any involvement in illegal activity.
Robert Kraft's spokesman: “We categorically deny that Mr. Kraft engaged in any illegal activity. Because it is a judicial matter, we will not be commenting further.”— NFL Update (@MySportsUpdate) February 22, 2019
The war has already begun.
NFL owners are subject to discipline under the league's Personal Conduct Policy. There is still information yet to be unraveled, so we'll have to wait and see how this story evolves. If this story continues to go down this disturbing path, it'll be interesting to see what the NFL does, as far as punishment for the Patriots owner.

Even though this has nothing to do with football, the Patriots organization as a whole can't get away from nefarious, and in this case downright illegal, activity.
It wasn't that long ago when Kraft spoke about meeting Meek Mill in prison and how that was the first time he'd ever been in a jail cell. How the times have changed.
