Ray Rice. Two games and another game paycheck. Why be outraged? Did anybody expect anything more than that? If you did, you aren't seeing the big picture here. Keith Olbermann said it best: You can go out and beat the shit out of your girl, then go on line and by the female version of Ray Rice jersey on NFL.com for $59. Wow, just wow.
Bart Scott on CBS Sports Network says he got off light because the NFL doesn't have a policy on Domestic Violence and that they'll have to start one. THAT IS THE MOST COWARDLY OF ALL TAKES OUTSIDE OF DEFENDING RICE. Uh, hey Bart, they just did you moron! The bar has been set at 2 games and another game check for clocking a woman. So what happens when some moron gets bent and stabs his signifcant other? 3 games and anoter game check? Oh, and by the way Bart, I don't hear any denouncing of what Rice did.
Hey Baltimore fan, if you cheer this guy, you freaking suck! And if you buy his jersey or the female version of Baltimore 27, you're worse. But the sick thing here is you will. Just like SF fans cheered Barry Bonds and will cheer that freaking drunk ass wannabe gangsta Aldon Smith. Just once, when a-holes like this make a play, I'd like to hear the crowd go silent. Don't say a word. Don't cheer, don't boo, just go silent. Ya think maybe that'll send a message?
Noticeably silent on this whole thing? YEP, the mother fucking Union. No denounciation of the DV, no nothing. You think that the union placed pressure on Goddell to go as light as possible? Was he gonna go with four games, then some handshake agreement came out of it to take two plus a game check and Rice doesn't appeal? Of course it went down like that, Owner Jim Irsay is still on the docket and he has to be dealt with. Could you imagine if he dropped the hammer on Rice then did little to Irsay? Could you imagine the Union then?
By the way Baltimore, five arrests, oh, and that little incident 15 years ago with Ray Lewis? Just what the hell does it take to get B-more organization to maybe crack down on these freaks?
Don't laugh San Francsico, you have just as much of a problem, and so does San Diego every Sunday Night after a game. Yeah San Diego, you aren't slipping under my radar.
Seems to me that the NFL, it's union and alumni, just are scared to deal with something like domestic violence. So here's the deal NFL, I've already consciously watched less of your watered down product over the past few years. I'm not going to be a hypocrite and say boycott the NFL. No, I won't do that. But what I can do is this: I can call you all a bunch of MF-ing cowards, too scared to do the right thing.
I know that I myself can do little to change the mentality - it will never change in the NFL. So I'll cheer like hell against Baltimore probably more so than I will against Seattle, just like I'll cheer against Aldon Smith and to a lesser degree that silver spoon BOY (as opposed to being a man) Johnny Manziel.
PC Police. Just so I understand, a radio personality can call Erin Andrews a bitch on a radio show and he loses his syndication on NESN. Tony Dungy is crucified for saying he wouldn't draft Michael Sams because he hates media distractions, and has to "clarify" his comments. Anybody who agrees with Dungy in terms of "media distraction" (including myself) are homophobes according to talking heads. Meanwhile, love him or hate him (and he's definitely polarizing), Rush Limbaugh had a point: They ran his ass for that assinine McNabb comment IMMEDIATELY and permanently,
Just one year ago Riley Cooper ran his ignorant mouth and he got a two day vacation for basically communicating a threat against a specific race of people. And didn't Jesse Jackson use a not so flattering term at least once to refer to our President, not to mention referring to a specific religion with a pretty nasty epitaph?
Can somebody please tell me what the rules are, and can somebody enforce them equally?
Where is the special interests? You know, the womens groups, those who support "law and order", victims groups? Where is the outrage, and I mean that sincerely? We as individuals can go out and be outraged, yet I hear nothing from our leaders and those who think they can speak on our behalf. What a bunch of freaking cowards.
