No idea what he keeps saying, but can you imagine his attorney's giving Mo tickets to the game tonight? WTF is wrong with him and can this even be a real person?

Guilty or innocent, I'm sure Mo and his lawyer are too smart to show up tonight. Regardless of the fact that he's almost certainly not allowed, the optics are terrible.

Bad optics that a man who is presumed innocent is out enjoying his freedom?

He is presumed innocent under the law. He is not presumed innocent, unfortunately, in public opinion. If you don't understand how that would be a bad public relations move, you don't have a full grasp on reality.

The comment below from a member of the public has a different idea. From the justgiving website.

What part of the difference between legal standard and public opinion don't you understand? Everybody and their mother believed OJ killed his wife.

I can't imagine the dynamics of all this behind the scenes. Watson's parents being there, the team still obviously supporting him, but some pretty terrible, public things the prosecution has said. Yikes. This is ugly. Not to mention extremely sad all the way around and how this has domino-ed.
