Hey diddle diddle, Ray Rice got way too little-a two game suspension for punching his girlfriend now wife? Come on Commissioner Goodell. P.E.D. users, potheads, DUI’ers, bullies, dog killers, they got stiffer penalties than this one. A wifebeater or a girlfriend beater gets two. Ridiculous.
And how about the Ravens reaction? Ray Rice is a great guy. Coach Harbaugh says it’s not a big thing. Hello, you just can’t go around punching women.
We are all probably guilty of giving the NFL a free pass because we love the sport, we love to bet on games and we love the violence. We will overlook any kind of behavior once the season rolls around. Kill somebody? OK, Aaron Hernandez, go to jail. Gone and forgotten.
P.E.D’s. Just say you sorry and we’ll go on. A DUI? Bad boy, just call a cab next time. Oh, you shot yourself in the leg? How stupid can you be? Here’s a new contract.
Murderers, rapists, burglars, drug addicts, bullies, dog killers, drug dealers, con artists. Welcome to the National Felony League.
But aren’t we all just a little bit guilty for supporting these terrible people? Sure, there are plenty of good people in the NFL and everyone, good or bad, has bad intentions on their mind when they take the field.
But forget about it, it’s time for the kickoff.
