    Didn't say anything like that, and it has nothing to do with being in it for the money, but the NFL has made it very advantageous for women to keep quiet about domestic abuse.

    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.

    but she didn't file, and charges are impossible now.
    Hi back. What is even more silly is to think the NFL ( and Ravens) are looking at the MERITS of this -preferring to get out of the media headlights.

    cuz the media is now more then the message, it is now the judge and jury.

    I know the law. You need to recognize the difference between throwing a fit and hurting someone unnecessarily.
    I understand the law...and I agree with it.

    Does not remotely change that she was also wrong. Very wrong....maybe just as wrong except with not as much physical ability to carry it out.

    I have no respect for either of them. She struck him. And she married him. My guess is that was a common form of exchange between them, part of their relationship, but he carried it too far and too publicly.

    Hers is misdemeanor assault, his is felony battery (perhaps more/additional).

    I will no longer address this false equivalence, it's disgusting. Good day.

    are you defending his actions?

    domestic violence is a very serious issue.....

    and the original 2 game suspension was a complete joke.....why i started this thread in the first place

    and six games is too light also......sorry if you think this is just a witch hunt

    this is an epidemic in our country....and imo the nfl should have higher standards, not lower

    we are supposed to have evolved from the cro-magnum species....couldnt tell it at times looking at the nfl....

    and i am a huge fan of the game.....

    I agree, all wife beatings ought to be done behind closed doors.

    I said he should be punished. He committed felony assault as far as I could see.

    Apparently Annata says it's too late for that however.

    Well the woman struck first and had it coming, imho. The days of women being allowed to hit men is more or less ending. The law needs to adjust to that fact.

    If you start a fight with someone you better expect them to try to end it. If women want to be treated equal they better get used to a fist in the face when they decide to throw one.
