Brit Hume Suggests It's Not NFL's Job To 'Police' Players Off The Field

With multiple cases of domestic violence among NFL players coming to light in recent weeks, the league is facing major scrutiny over its handling of the situation.

But Fox News contributor Brit Hume questioned on Sunday whether the cases are even the NFL's responsibility at all.

"Since when is it the job of a sports league to police the private conduct or misconduct of the players off the field, outside the realm of football?" Hume asked on "Fox News Sunday."

Hume was responding to a viewer-submitted comment arguing that critics need to "get off the NFL's back."

"I think there's something to that," he said.
