MILWAUKEE -- Police don't plan to recommend pressing charges against a Green Bay Packers player accused of sexual assault by two women who changed their statements during the investigation, the chief overseeing the investigation said Monday.

Delton Police Chief Tom Dorner said he expects to forward the investigation's findings to prosecutors by Tuesday, but he thinks they would have a hard time proving a case.

"I think it's going to be a problem because there's too much information that contradicts between the alleged victims and the alleged suspect," Dorner said.

Officers were called early Saturday to a condo in Lake Delton where seven Packers players were staying during a charity golf event. The women initially told investigators they were sexually assaulted by more than one Packer while other players held them down.

After the players were questioned, the women changed their statements to say only one person assaulted them, Dorner said Monday.

Police cleared six of the seven players of wrongdoing. A seventh player whom police declined to identify and who has not been arrested remains under investigation.

"It's obviously troubling they would make that statement originally and shortly into the investigation change it, a pretty important piece of information ... it is weird," Dorner said of the accusers.

Sauk County District Attorney Patricia Barrett did not immediately respond to a phone message seeking comment.

Police declined to identify the women, saying only both are from Milwaukee. One is 31 years old, the other 33. Dorner said he did not know if either had an attorney.

The six players who were cleared were quarterback Matt Flynn, linebackers Clay Matthews and Brad Jones, fullback Korey Hall, guard Josh Sitton and safety Khalil Jones.

The women were examined at different hospitals by nurses trained in gathering sexual assault evidence, Dorner said. He said he did not know the results. No weapons or restraints were used in the alleged assault, and investigators found no evidence of any drugs, including date rape drugs.

Police said all the Packers were drinking alcohol, but it was not clear if the women had been drinking.

"I suspect most everybody was probably consuming alcohol to some degree. To what degree, I don't think there was anyone who was passed out or totally inebriated," he said.

The women met several players at a Wisconsin Dells strip club, Dorner said. He said the women were patrons, not club employees. They drove back to the players' condo while at least some players took a shuttle bus from the club to the resort.

The women left the condo after the alleged assaults and contacted police from a nearby residence, Dorner said.

The NFL and the Packers are closely watching the case, which follows an offseason sexual assault investigation involving one of the league's stars, Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger.

Prosecutors did not charge Roethlisberger in that case, but the league suspended him for six games on April 21 for violating its personal conduct policy.

Matthews, who participated in a charity softball game Sunday along with several other players, expressed frustration about being linked to the investigation.

"All we were doing is being asked to talk about a specific incident and that's what we did," Matthews said. "It's unfortunate and it aggravated us a bit, but you just have to put it behind you and move forward."

You left out God's gift to football and heir apparent to the Super Bowl 45 title.

At least that's what I am getting from the media.

When you're on top everyone wants you to fail rather than earn their way to the top. Get used to it. After title 7 comes to the Burgh it's going to be even worse. That's also why there will once again be a lack of coverage after the Superbowl. If you recall after title 6 there were a few weeks of coverage then nothing. When the Saint's won last year it never stopped with the constant blabbing about them.

Because 0 of those names are stars and the media wouldn't even sniff around something like that unless there was a shot at some hack reporter making it big.

Remember when the Cardinals were in the Super Bowl two years ago and the media was kissing their asses? All the celebrities were rooting for the Cardinals like they were original fans of the team. That act faded fast! :lol:

I'm starting to think the media and the nfl had it out for Ben. Maybe cause he wins too much? Or maybe cause the team wins too much. That's gotta be it.

It's actually not unheard of for a sports league to ban superior competition. NASCAR banned Dodge back in the early 1970's because Ford and Chevrolet had nothing to compete with the HEMI's.

Is that a sport? :lol:

Baseball banned steroids because the Pirates had nothing to compete with Bonds. It didn't help them like it did Ford and Chevy. :)

That's what I am hoping for here. Everyone is slobbering all over the Packers right now and the Steelers are a clear underdog. When the going gets tough, the Steelers get tougher.
