    You can say I'm "wrong" all you want, it isn't going to change anything. I still saw the video. It was a MAN punching a WOMAN in the face and knocking her unconscious by doing so. There's no other way FOR ME to "think of it."

    I wish her the best of luck as well, and I don't blame her at all for staying. There are many reasons a woman stays with a guy who has hit her (even once is abuse in my book), the biggest one being fear.

    Perhaps the better question in domestic violence cases is not to ask her why she stays but to ask HIM why he HIT her in the first place. I seriously doubt that it was a case of self-defense, given the difference in their sizes.

    If that employee's actions hurt the bottom line, it's their business.

    If that is the case then they are contractually bound.

    It does depend heavily on the exact verbiage of that clause.

    And in the case of Rice's wife, it's his bank account.

    Even IF that is true, and I certainly don't know for a fact that it is, so what. It doesn't give HIM the right to hit her. And no, I'm not buying the "self-defense" argument. Rice looks much bigger and heavier than Mrs. Rice does.

    Yeah, If the person weighs more than a hundred pounds less than you, I figure some restraint is required in one's self-defense.

    Who said anything about a teammate? Are you just picking the kind of guys who you think could take it rather than going with what I was actually talking about?
