Broken Disciplinary System?

NFL commissioner Roger Goodell promised changes to what he described as a broken disciplinary system. “We're like a microcosm of society. We have a lot of young men, a lot of individuals that play or coach or executives. Other individuals in the league that -- they make mistakes.” The press conference left more questions than answers but I agree that the NFL is a microcosm of society, but why does it seem that these crimes against women are too often characterized as mistakes. Is it a mistake that a federal judge in Atlanta is still on the bench after a plea deal for abusing his wife?  Reports reveal an estimated 1.3 million women are victims of domestic assault by an intimate partner each year.


What’s Your Take? Why do you think domestic violence remains one of the most chronically underreported crimes?

CBS and the NFL made the decision to pull a segment featuring Rihanna singing “Run This Town” from its opening week Thursday Night Football broadcast.  Rihanna was not happy with the decision and made it publicly known.   It was the first Baltimore Ravens game since Ray Rice was indefinitely suspended .The lyrics “Feel it comin' in the air, And the screams from everywhere, I’m addicted to the thrill, It's a dangerous love affair” was considered too controversial considering the allegations of domestic abuse dominating the NFL.


What’s Your Take? Did CBS and the NFL make the right call?

Domestic Violence,Ray Rice and the NFL

Ray Rice was released by the Baltimore Ravens and indefinitely suspended by the NFL last week, a reversal of the NFL June announcement of a much criticized two week suspension resulting from his February assault on his then-fiancée (now wife) Janay Rice.The NFL and Baltimore Ravens have stated that they did not see the full video of the incident until it was released by TMZ, and there are conflicting reports about what Rice told them. Ravens General Manager Ozzie Newsome said on Sep. 10 that Rice "didn't lie" to him about what was on the video. In a letter to the NFLPA on Sep. 12, Goodell said that Rice gave a "starkly different" version of events than what was revealed on the second tape released by TMZ.
 

Sources allege that the NFL was sent the elevator video in April. The source said he had a 12-second voicemail from an NFL office number confirming the video arrived.
Of the 47 incidents of NFL players arrested or charged for violent crimes toward women since Goodell became commissioner in 2006, none resulted in a suspension of more than one game according to reports.
 

There is reportedly no double jeopardy clause in the NFL’s collective bargaining agreement and the NFL has the right to modify Ray Rice’s suspension to anything they want.  Rice has reportedly been in  discussions with lawyers about potential strategies and actions.

In your opinion, was the decision to indefinitely suspend Rice strictly a PR move?  Should Roger Goodell’s job be in jeopardy? Do you think Rice will be eventually reinstated?

What's Next for Adrian Petersen and the NFL?

Minnesota Viking running back Adrian Peterson has been indicted and surrendered to Texas police on a charge of injury to a child. Peterson allegedly spanked his son with a switch resulting in injuries all over the boy’s body. Peterson will likely make a court appearance in the next several weeks, but it could be several months before the case would go to trial. Peterson's attorney, Rusty Hardin, issued a statement Friday saying his client's conduct "involves using a switch to spank his son." Hardin went on to say “Adrian is a loving father who used his judgment as a parent to discipline his son. He used the same kind of discipline with his child that he experienced as a child growing up in east Texas”

What’s Your Take? Should Adrian Peterson be allowed to play or should he be suspended until a determination is made in a court of law?
