Something I've wondered about is where was the player's agent in all of this? Kyle Beach was 2 years removed from being an 11th overall draft pick, so surely he had an agent representing him. The agent had to know what was going on given this was brought to the Hawks management and the PA. Once it became clear it had been ignored, why would the agent not have pushed the issue, or gone to the league, or eventually the press, even anonymously? I know it's not always black and white, and the laws are different depending on where you are, but if you’re aware of a crime that has taken place you have an obligation to report it, at the very least a moral obligation.


I don't think you can go to the media or police without getting the victim on-board for that. There's just too much danger that you end up exposing the player with potentially little or no consequence to the offender, because nothing can happen without the player confirming. The media guys can't really run with a story that's not confirmed by a principal person in it. Westhead needed to have Beach involved before he started running with the story.

And a lot of the guys may not have understood is was assault, at least at first. It sounds like in the management meeting, they knew he was making inappropriate approaches, but not that he'd actually assaulted him. They knew Beach's career had been threatened too. That was all Beach had told the Mental Skills coach at that point, so that's all the information they had to go on. Certainly, it was enough they probably should have fired or AT LEAST suspended him pending investigation. It probably wasn't enough to go to the cops with, especially without Beach as part of that discussion.

The problem is that these things are hard enough to investigate and convict on even with the victim's participation. It is impossible without it.
