Where am I coming from? The man (AF) wrote "Not a matter of blaming the victim, but..." and proceeded to question the credibility of the victim.
When I, and others, react negatively to this, the response is to keep digging the hole deeper. And then others jump on the bandwagon. We get comments about golddiggers who target baseball players. We get comments about women conducting a "hustle."
And in all this, no discussion about entitled, spoiled athletes, who have been bailed out whenever they misbehaved throughout their youth, simply because they were outstanding athletes.
Does this stereotype apply to the Dodger players? I have no idea - but raising that stereotype is at least as appropriate as raising nasty stereotypes about Baseball Annies and cheap trash runaway teenage girls.
If you don't see this a a quintessential example of victim-shaming, I don't have much else to add.
The relevant issue here, IMHO, is that, confronted with alcohol abuse by minors, and allegations of assault, the Dodgers' response (and this includes Kapler) was to protect their assets, and apparently try to pay off the alleged victim. Throw some money at the problem, and expect it to go away. Again, if you don't see this as disturbing, I don't know what else to say.
Put it in a different context. If a bishop took this approach to protecting an abusive priest, you would be OK with somebody questioning the credibility of an abused child, and OK with the bishop trying to buy that family's silence?
