In Topic: Vikings GM; We expect AP to return. What universe is domestic abuse worse tha...

If I'm being absolutely honest what AP did is in many cultures considered discipline.  And that goes across ALL races.  Granted it seems he went to far but whoopings are a thing that I would say 75% of children deal(t) with, including myself.  Any whooping I got was one that I saw coming and could've avoided had I behaved as I had been warned.  If my parents had told me "they would punish me by taking away a game" I would definitely have rebelled.
This is SPECIFICALLY in regards to whoopings to try to raise a kid. Not closed fist punching/ slamming children and taking anger out on them.

Hitting a woman is inexcusable.

In all honestly society has got way to soft. That's why so many kids get away with what they want into today world. There is a fine line between abuse and whooping a child because they did wrong. Balling up your fist and punching the child of slamming them against the wall and other things like that is abuse. But using a switch or belt on them is not. Unless that whooping goes to far. But come on I got whipped with a switch when I was growing up and it left red lines across the back of my leg. But I don't see it as abuse. To many people in society today have to many opinions on how people should raise their kids. People should mind their own business. If there is abuse report it and let police deal with. They shouldn't even put this kind of stuff on tv. It should handle better then it does in today society to be honest.

I don't think it's even close. Let me preface by saying the obvious that I am anti domestic violence and there is no excuse for hitting a women, but I don't think the two crimes are close. In my eyes what adrian Peterson did isn't even in the same conversation as what Hardy and rice did. Hitting a defenseless child who cannot stand up for themself at all is as disgusting and low life as it gets.

 

Yes a child is defenseless, but so is these women that Rice and Hardy hit. These are football players who are strong guys compared to a 150 pound female. It's equally just as bad in my opinion. Again that is just my opinion.

Is it just me? Am I crazy? But isn't child abuse way worse than domestic abuse? Not downplaying domestic abuse at all but in my mind child abuse is way worse. Vikings brass are smart in not letting a player of AP's caliber walk. Hardy should be welcomed back here also.

 

In my opinion no. Any kind of abuse whether it is child or adult is the same. I don't understand why society wants to put all different abuse on different levels on for kids or adults. Abuse is abuse. It's all terrible and it happens. But putting it on different levels is stupid. But what the law does to AP is up to them and not up to us. Besides why are we talking about this.This is about football not abuse class.

Might end up having to use the franchise tag on Byron Bell after multiple offensive player of the game performances and his downfield block in the Arizona game.

 

Disagree! He ain't worth using the franchise take on. The guy is avg. I whether them let him walk and we look at other FA Tackles if their are any good ones better then Bell this off season.

Why are people so scared of Rex. The guy might flop in Failcon land. We don't know what will happen until it happens. Even so we are just as good as them or better. Not worried.
