Like I said in the Ray Rice thread, these are crazy times where the media basically overrides any type of due process. ESPN, TMZ, CNN basically create, dictate, influence opinions as well as policies whether it is sports, politics or economics
I'm not excusing domestic violence, but these people are not angels .... fugg, I know I am not. They'll get their day in court and the NFL's ruling should be proportional with the legal system. We need to let the legal system work. Our personal moral judgement of others should not turn into witch-hunt every time the media decides that this is the latest outrage. I hope Hardy goes after these fuggers if he is not found guilty.
Hate to be dramatic, but this is the beginning of the end when a free society turns into a Roman mob
In fairness, due process is a legal term, and he is getting due process in the courts. But the NFL is a private entity and can punish how it sees fit (in accordance of course with its existing rules and the collective bargaining agreement).
Fwiw, I think the running game could get better as the season rolls along. Especially if the passing game becomes more of a threat. If our oline stays healthy, then I believe players like Silatou and Thomas will begin to gel.
What is interesting about all that is that the FDA hasn't approved the use of the pill for those reasons, yet they are widely perscribed to treat those conditions. I know quite a few people that take them for those reasons primarily, not for the birth control effects.
I try to avoid being an ass these days, although sometimes I fail. To be honest, its something I didn't think about. Its been many years since my wife had to take BC pills, so I haven't thought about them in a while. Once again, my apologies to Cat.
Fwiw, I don't believe that politicians should be deciding what should and shouldn't be available over the counter under any circumstances.
That does seem to pose a question though. I do believe that birth control pills should be covered as long as the medical community thinks they should. In fact, its probably a financial benefit for an insurance company to cover it since its cheaper than a pregnancy. But if one believes as some seem to, that it should not be covered, should the insurance company require the doctor to state the reason for the prescription as a condition for covering the expense, and only cover them if the need is medical, other than preventing pregnancy?
My stream froze up with Cam clutching his knee on the ground. I started crying, and while I was crying I pulled out my penis and started peeing all over my face as tears and urine flowed down my cheeks.
Doesn't really matter who we put on Johnson, he is going to get his. All we need to do is keep Johnson from going completely wild, shut down the other receivers, slow down the running game, and and get pressure on the QB.
His statement is a big piece of the problem. Too many kids are growing up in relationships like these today....and thus thinking that this behavior is normal or OK.
My parents have been married for over 50 years. My dad has never even come close to laying a hand on my mom.
I have been married for 19 years and I have never even thought about hitting, pushing, grabbing etc my wife. We argue sometimes, but turning physical isn't anywhere close to reality.
Fortunately I never had to worry about it. My Dad left when I was about 4 years old, and I rarely saw him after that.
Bad fathers, be they abusive or absent, is one of the biggest issues facing this country, and perhaps the most important social issue, at least in my humble opinion. Its an issue that largely transcends race or even gender, at least irt its effect on children.
