Buzbee told reporters that the NFL spoke to only 10, despite two dozen women coming forward. Of those 10, the league presented only four cases at the Watson hearing.

“We’re here today with a message to the NFL,” He he said. “That message is simple and hopefully clear: Every victim of sexual harassment is watching Roger Goodell and the NFL right now. And the idea that Mr. Goodell is going to hand over to an independent, we’re not buying it.”
