Typically, the question is “Are you ready for some football?” These days, as the NFL is drowning in sea of murky despair and hapless PR, that question would be, “Are you ready for some football…justice?”
It all started with Ray Rice being a despicable coward and knocking his then-fiancée smooth out in an elevator. There was Greg Hardy, who body-slammed his girlfriend onto a bed full of semi-automatic guns (because that’s what you check at the door for NFL parties). There’s Ray McDonald — who is still playing because Goodell is a dope — arrested for beating up his pregnant girlfriend. There is Adrian Peterson, who took the classy way out and left his estranged wife alone, instead opting to “whoop” and scar his 4-year-old son.
And now there’s this: a former NFL general manager says that, over his 30-year career, “hundreds and hundreds” of domestic violence incidents were simply ignored.
