How hard is it to go your entire life without getting charged with domestic violence?

When you hear a guy say, "I would never strike a woman," it's really just saying, "I'm meeting the bare minimum for not being a piece of human garbage."

You hear about it, seemingly, almost every week. How is it so prevalent in the NFL?


53 * 32 = 1664 players (not counting practice squad. If 0.5% of players commit domestic violence annually, that would be roughly 8 players. Not sure it is that prevalent...

Perhaps unpopular opinion, but it seems odd to me the extreme hatred for D/V over other crimes committed -- some of them which seem to my mind much worse.

I agree for the same reason you stated, but if I cared to look deeper into this it seems that the young man was never charged with anything, that the injuries were look at by an examiner and could not have been in the time frame she accused him of as they were at least a week older and the person that was with her, not him said she was a liar and was trying to get money. Again not making an argument for or against, but I do wonder if over -reaction in the media is unfair to both the accused and persons that are actually victims of domestic violence.

Domestic violence is abhorrent. The evidence against Elliot, however, not only doesn't satisfy a reasonable doubt standard, it doesn't satisfy even probable cause. The NFL is cynical as hell, and decided to assign a completely inappropriate penalty, assuming that an arbitrator will overturn it. It's cowardly beyond belief.

Elliott was subject to the league's personal conduct policy for allegedly breaking the nose of a DJ at a Dallas nightclub. The NFL looked into the case, but couldn't come to any conclusions. For now, it sounds like Elliott has avoided further suspension. Elliott is still facing potential discipline for his St. Patrick's Day incident. http://www.rotoworld.com/player/nfl/112 ... el-elliott
When you've got two to three other cases pending with the off the field issues there has to be an intervention. Sure there were no charges 'officially' filed from law enforcement for the DV. When you look at the incidents he has been participant in since you start to think, hey, where there's smoke....This guy definitely isn't establishing a good reputation for himself. So as far as I'm concerned everything he is dealing with is due to stupidity and by default self inflicted.

I heard Stephan A. Smith this morning compare the Elliot suspension with Big Ben. He said that the NFL suspended Roethlisberger because he was a star and impugned on the league reputation. For Elliot, he says it seems to be a assignment of guilt. Compare these with Josh Brown who's wife complained to the police 20 times before his 1 game suspension. Smith pointed out that there seems to be a preponderance of evidence from back in January to Elliot's guilt and wonders why it tool the NFL so long.

Why?

The Steelers/Cowboys rivalry was decades ago.

No one in that fan base probably cares about the Steelers anymore.
