This is very different than if you report your accountant husband for spousal abuse. Sure, his employer can fire him,but its not like there isn't another accounting firm out there. There is only one NFL, and only one professional football league that pays multiple-millions a year to play a game.
I'm not condoning his actions in anyway. I'm saying that the NFL has made it very clear that you will both be unemployed,ex-millionaires if you report domestic violence.
