I Would NEVER Hit a Woman!!!

Deion Sanders
insists ... he never laid a finger on his estranged wife Pilar during a nuclear argument in their Texas mansion Monday -- telling TMZ, "I would never touch a woman. That's not me."

Deion -- who's in NYC for the NFL Draft with his two sons -- told us the citation he received for simple assault this week is BS ... because he "never did that stuff."

As we previously reported, cops in Prosper, TX issued Deion a ticket for misdemeanor simple assault for his role in Monday's altercation -- when Pilar allegedly jumped him in his bedroom ... "kicking, biting, and scratching" him in front of his sons.

Deion has insisted from the beginning -- he never harmed Pilar, and only "defended" himself until he was able to call police.

Pilar was arrested for domestic violence. An emergency protective order was also issued against her, banning her from the ex-couple's home.

I'm so sick of this guy and his wife--they are both a disgrace! We don't want to hear about their hate for each other. Do either of them realize what they are doing to their children?

Sure...right. And I'll bet she is just "crazy," and you didn't do ANYTHING to make her angry. Typical male BS.

Pitiful! He needs to STFU! While I do believe Pilar is super extra on everything, Deion needs to not glamorize or minimize what happened with his wife, their mother.

What happened that night, in their house was horrible. And while he's telling that man "God Bless you", I hope he also knows God sees EVERYTHING. As the Bible reads, God is not mocked and whatsoever you do, you shall also reap. You're day is coming Deion. You don't have to repair your marriage, but you MUST be a man and do what is right. Grow up.

I also believe Deion. Pilar is just trying to get him to hit her so she went after him in an attempt to make him HAVE to smack her...She is trying her best to get their prenup null and void! If some lunatic of a woman is trying to whoop a grown mans as* then I definitely agree with the fact that he should be able to defend himself.

Straight Talkin Texan: 52 minutes ago: "And, as a typical male chauvinist, you fail to see the error in what you wrote...it's not possible to know the truth, especially based on what you wrote"

There is no chauvinism in any of my comments on TMZ. There's only accountability to women and feminists.
As typical, feminists translate accountability to feminists and women, as "chauvinism" and "sexism".
That happens when feminists brainwash women into such a mindset of entitlement that they actually describe justice to boys and men, as sexism against girls and women.
It's possible to know the truth by watching the video, which has no proof of domestic violence by Lane.
Try as they might, sexist feminists can't turn a circle into a square, but it's fun watching them fumble ;)

Sidetracked with extra tab on Lane story, comment above this should read...

It's possible to know the truth by watching the video, which has no proof of domestic violence by ***Deion, and shows his sons with him during police reports***

What a joke women are when it comes to the man being abused. When a man hits a woman it is the man's fault but when a woman hits a man it is both their faults??? smh

When a woman come forward or goes public about domestic abuse she is being brave and courageous but when a man goes public he has no class or THEY BOTH SHOULD BE ASHAMED!!!! smh Hypocrisy at it's finest!!!

Way to lose sympathy for all those women who truly are abused!!

She brought the children into the middle of this the minute she abused her husband in front of them!! Pilar made them witnesses to domestic violence, not Deion!

SHAME ON PILAR!!! I KNOW IT MUST BE HARD FOR A MAN TO COME FORWARD ABOUT DOMESTIC ABUSE. DEION IS A BRAVE SOUL!!!

Let's see....Pilar goes to the hospital with broken bones and a busted lip, while Deion makes a personal appearance with Nancy Lieberman just an hour later, with no signs that he was scratched, bruised or even touched, but he say's he was "jumped and assaulted" by a woman weighing half his weight. He also claims that it was 2 women that "broke" in to his bedroom and "assaulted" him, but the "mystery" accomplice was neither named or arrested.....let's do the math...shall we?...Sounds like he lost his temper and put a serious whupp'in on his wife, then realized he had just violated the "morality clause" in his NFL Network and endorsement contracts....so he concocted this pile of steaming crap to try to save himself.....Wife Beating isn't cool Deion....Truth
