    The trouble is, women LOVE abusive men! Remeber John Bobbitt, his wife Lorena, and their domestic violence making national news? Ironically, he had a new girlfriend within minutes!

    Guess there is no shortage of stupid.

    Those high school nerds are starting to look a touch more appealing ladies, and unless they bang their heads repeatedly with their pocket protectors are less apt to acquire neurofibrillary tangles. :)

    Most of the women who are NFL fans are wearing Ray Rice’s, Adrian Peterson’s, etc, jersey in support of their stars. Don’t kid yourselves, media, the fans could care less. After Rice was suspended, his team’s game was the highest rated ever for Thursday football. And here’s a thought for you. It appears that NFL players are arrested at HALF the rate of the general public for domestic abuse. So this supposed “black eye” the media are trying to hang on the NFL is apparently a blind. Possibly on orders to report ANYthing which takes pressure off the mid-term elections. Wag the dog. Hey, if they can trade in speculation, so can I. ;-)

    There is NO evidence that the current “scandals” are having any effect on NFL revenue streams or fan participation. I believe that anyone convicted of domestic abuse should go to jail (male or female). While in jail they should not receive their salaries, naturally. But do we then ban for life any domestic abuser from working as a garbage collector, or a reporter, or a “gasp!” POLITICIAN? Heck, Marion Barry was convicted of crack use and got reelected as soon as he was let out of prison. Stop the fake angst. Jail the perps (or let the woman’s male family members have a turn at the beast) and then get on with your lives.

    We may have to do away with the NFL for health/safety reasons, but do not tar the entire league for a few sphincters, as you should not tar every Catholic priest for the actions of .02% of them, or tar all US presidents because of Bill Clinton (who was just this side of being a rapist).

    Hell, he starred in adult films after “the incident.”

    wcorvi: I has a sister-in-law who indeed DID seem to look for, and stay with, dangerous, violent boyfriends. The (shared) drugs and addiction had a lot to do with it. But it was more the same self hate related to the drug use, that led to those relationships. The combination ended with her early death.


    Sadly, “walk away” is good advice, but mental disease, or addiction is hard to escape.


    The NFL is hardly the soul source of violent behaviors, but it’s part of the problem, with players, and fans.


    Which, the military trains people to violence as well. Today, they’re working closer with troops to bring them back to the world, but there’s still a lot of violence, and problems.


    I got into law enforcement after the military and it helped me a lot to learn CONTROL of that violent capacity I knew I was capable of. Even with PTSD, it is factors other than just that which causes violence, and suicides. We need to help those people TRAINED to be violent, not just blame them, alone.


    Knowing the extreme violence I was CAPABLE OF, was indeed a part of what helped me control it. Maybe the NFL needs to improve their programs to help these guys learn this control?

    hawgowar: Arrest rates are not a reliable indicator of actual offenses. I don’t know if there is any reliable indicator, but arrest rates certainly are not.

    The FBI uses arrest records for statistical analysis all the time. What are you gonna do? Interview the country?
