Here’s my thing, and it’s the last status I’m gonna make about it: Until EVERY player in the NFL is retroactively punished for reported, DOCUMENTED attacks/assaults/rapes on women? You can save me this smoke-screen, emotional distraction bullshit Rodger Goodell is pulling by making an example of Ray Rice. This is happening every day, by more players than not. But y’all out here mad at ONE person? Writing think pieces about domestic violence and victim complexes, not seeing the whole picture? Oh.
Come on people…think. FOCUS.
Consider this: The NFL saw that tape and issued what *they* thought was a reasonable punishment. They didn’t change the policy or up the punishment until YOU were about to see the tape. Mind you, litigation had already happened on the criminal front. There is an insidiousness with the way this thing was presented to the public. If you out here burning Ray Rice jerseys but still screaming for Roethlisberger and his team? GTFOH. They don’t care about you, they don’t care about women–they care about money. And focusing on one person keeps them dollars rolling in, because if you stopped supporting EVERY woman beater in the NFL? They’d have to stop playing. So ask yourself this: are you REALLY supporting a cause, or are you being played emotionally? Really supporting a cause calls for EQUAL. PUNISHMENT. ACROSS. THE. BOARD.
FOH with the bovine excrement, man. #FireGoodell
