Embarrassing. So we're blaming the victim. No wonder we have a domestic violence epidemic on our hands.

Does that sound like the story of a woman who's just looking for a quick payday? You tell me, I don't know. I'm all tapped out here.

Are you gonna make sarcastic comments in every thread directed at those whose opinions you disagree with about the Peterson incident?

Yes, that seems like a pretty strong possibility.

Apparently they didn't arrest him, just gave him a citation but he still broke the rules of his probation. He wasn't supposed to have any alcohol-related, drug-related or traffic offenses. The dummy hit on all three of those.

It was time to cut him a few months ago. I was hoping they would just move on in the offseason but they decided to give him another chance. There should be no more excuses now.

Everson Griffen summed it up perfectly when asked about it today: “Another time?’’

I think the question needs to be asked; how much are concussions playing into this whole plague?

As we know of atm, Dwyer had never had a concussion. As we also know, the NFL had little to no regulations over concussions and players often either hid them or played through them. What are the chances Dwyer's supposed mental issues were somewhat caused or full on created by constant head trauma? It's not like we have any way of knowing.

That would be a big problem for the NFL if someone could somehow make the connection.

You're not the first to make that connectio, Blitzkrug. Symptoms of CTE include increased aggression and poor regulation of moods. There's nothing conclusive at this point, and the natural counterpoint is that NFL players are already aggressive individuals.

How much of a "plague" is it? It's bad but it looks a lot worse because the season just started and everything is coming out at once. The Rice incident happened in early February, Hardy in May, and the other two more recently. There's what, close to 2000 players in the NFL when you factor in the practice squad? Is the rate of DV in the NFL really higher than the general population?

Or even steroids. Which may change with the new drug testing policy.

Works for me! Anything to combat these continual defenses & or benefits of the doubts when it comes to FACTUAL info that has been released about abusive behavior.

It's actually a little bit lower, and that's going back to the late 90's. I would not say the NFL has a "domestic violence problem" when you look at the big picture (these last few weeks notwithstanding, not anymore than the rest of the nation). But I would say it has a long history of treating domestic violence offenders with far more lenience than it should have.

I've said this before a bunch of times, but we have a very real epidemic in the US when it comes to domestic violence. The NFL needs to be out front and center providing a better example, just the same as we would expect from any other civic/business leader.

Depends on whether or not you factor in income levels. http://fivethirtyeight.com/datalab/t...g-nfl-players/

I think the main concern with trying to consider income levels in comparisons like this is that the vast majority of the NFL players are new members of the higher income levels.

That's true, thus why I didn't present it as a blanket statement that they should be included. But even as newer members, it's obviously that it can still have an impact on crime rates (see the plummeting rates of theft-related arrests, for instance). It's a complicated issue.

I wouldn't call Jovan Belcher or Belcher a "piece of crap." If the account is true, he probably has some pretty significant mental/emotional problems. It's a terrible situation for sure, but mental illness isn't something to be ignored.

Colts receiver Da’Rick Rogers has been arrested on a drunk driving charge.

Rogers was arrested last night for driving under the influence on the campus of Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis, according to FOX 59. According to the report, Colts cornerback Loucheiz Purifoy was a passenger in the vehicle Rogers was driving.

Remember when he was the best receiver in the SEC at Tennessee before his life went off the rails.

Well, for the most part you don't see this stuff in other leagues, at least not to the extent you see it happening in the NFL.

League full of thugs.

Great fun to watch though.

**** with the brain and it can change you. Look up Phineas Gage. They're still responsible for their actions, but let's not pretend like concussions aren't a life altering problem.
