People keep saying they are "shocked" upon viewing the video of Ray Rice punching his then-fiancée and knocking her unconscious. They shouldn't be. What, dear football fans and commentators alike, do you think it takes to punch a woman out?
As the heat turns up on the NFL, with more and more NFL felons are coming to light, NFL commissioner Roger Goodell finds himself covering his ass like...
If you don't understand how Ray Rice was allowed to initially escape prosecution, accepting a much lesser punishment of therapy from the court, nothing illustrates the culture of protecting the abusers of women better than Republican Ben Carson's statement on behalf of Ray Rice.
Until Peyton Manning hangs them up, he and Andrew Luck will play against each other at least once a season. That once is Sunday night.
Where is the outcry from our leading domestic violence organizations in the wake of the latest Ray Rice elevator video, wherein he punches his fiance in the face?
It seems that we can only count on the National Football League and it's teams to do the right thing when there are no more lies to hide behind. The money they make and the appearances that they try so hard to keep up are their main focus.
Atlanta beat New Orleans for just the fourth time in their last 17 meetings. The Falcons needed overtime and a pair of Matt Bryant +50-yard field goals, one as time expired in regulation and one in overtime, to win 37-34.

Usually, after the long off-season wait I dive in to my bets with wild abandon and get my ass kicked right out of the gate, but this year I actually got off to a pretty good start.
The Seattle Seahawks kicked off the 2014 season against the Green Bay Packers. I shot the game with the Lytro light-field camera. Lytro pictures are interactive photos built for the web. The camera incorporates a new technology known as light-field photography.
The NFL season is finally here. Are you ready? I know I am. I'll confess to all of you nice people on the internet (just between us), that I have a bit of a football addiction. Some might even call it a gambling addiction.
The NFL returns with a full schedule of games that actually count in the standings. While those with favorite clubs still in contention for baseball's post-season linger on in their affection for the leisurely game of summer, most of us are ready to turn the page. Are you ready for some football?
It's heartening that Michael Sam's signing is being seen as a football decision not just by Cowboys leadership but by a majority of fans as well. And by looking beyond the SEC All-American's sexuality and simply giving him a chance to play, the Dallas Cowboys have proven that they truly deserve to be called "America's Team."
Just maybe Sam has found the right place where he can possibly play right away and that's the Dallas Cowboys. On Wednesday, the Cowboys signed Michael Sam to the practice squad and he can help them immediately as their defense was horrid and still is this season.
Job discrimination is un-American. So change up now, both of you -- and pay my rainbow tax for your egregious behavior. Your past includes a horrible lack of leadership to end discrimination not only in football but all professional sports.
Including an understanding of behaviors typical of chronic domestic violence offenders and a realization that our best chances at prevention involve intervening with adolescents will augment the NFL's strong move to increase penalties for domestic violence offenders.
