Addressing correspondents in Fort Worth, Texas, where he was set to play for the Fort Worth Cats of the autonomous United League, Canseco said, by Sports Southwest, "I think you folks need to acknowledge one thing .I don't need to assault a lady. I believe it's silly. We're assembling polygraph examinations and trust in me, reality will dependably turn out. Furthermore, when I do these polygraphs, it's verging on ridiculous for a person to say I assaulted them and tranquilized them in the meantime."
He included, "You all don't have any acquaintance with me by any means, however my dear companions, my exes, my exes will affirm for my benefit that the way the media's depicted me, and the way they're attempting to depict me here, it's way off the mark to being me."
