The Hiromoto Okubo camp received its reply from the Lions organization today. They haven't released any information to the public, other than their line that Okubo did not do anything wrong and that his name is getting dragged through the mud.
I think this would be more a little more believable had Okubo never hit that woman a couple years back. But as it stands, that prior incident probably taints most everyone's view.
And unless someone on the Lions has a hidden agenda against Okubo, it doesn't really seem to make much sense for the team to get rid of Okubo like this.
