I am curious what happens when more details about the Ray McDonald case comes out. If it becomes clear he did something that he shouldn’t have, but there are plea deals or drop charges, what is Harbaugh going to do then?
He has backed himself into a corner with these statements courtesy of Sacramento Bee.
“I’ll be very clear,” Harbaugh said on the Murph & Mac show on KNBR radio. “You’re asking me how I feel about domestic violence, I can be very clear on that: If someone physically abuses a woman and or physically or mentally hurts a child, then there’s no understanding, no tolerance for that.”
Host Brian Murphy then asked if it was a circumstance in which he wouldn’t want the player on his team.
“Yes, yes,” Harbaugh said after a pause. “Would not. … It will not be tolerated. So you don’t need to quote a source. I can tell you exactly, be perfectly clear how I feel about that.”
Harbaugh went on to say he is going to let the legal proceedings play out, but I have my doubts that they Niners would cut McDonald regardless if he was suspended or not.
We will see.
