Roger Goodell says he made mistakes, but is that enough?

Roger Goodell came out of hiding today and faced the press, but he was low on specifics. Change is coming but he would not say what change would actually look like. He did the press conference on a Friday afternoon. He needed to speak and he did, but did we learn anything today?

Michael Eric Dyson asks is it punishment or child abuse?

Did the NFL give Cover Girl a black eye?

Is this fair? Domestic violence is a problem in society. It is not the exclusive problem of the NFL. We know the NFL players because they come into our homes 16 times a year, but there are abusers everywhere…what are we going to do about them?

Radisson Hotel Drops Minnesota Vikings Sponsorship amid Peterson abuse allegations

nfl
When the late Bernie Mac joked about “beating kids until the white meat showed” we all laughed, but that kind of beating is truly no laughing matter. Adrian Peterson is facing charges that his discipline went too far. Peterson contends he was simply doing to his children what had been done to him as a child. The Radisson Hotel chain has decided to suspend their limited sponsorship of the Vkings. Over the past few days we have heard pundits encourage companies to consider sponsorship of NFL teams and maybe this is the first company to do it, but will it be the last? Share your thoughts.

What’s Wrong with an old-fashioned whooping?

What is a switch? Ask any black person over the age of 35 and they will tell you. It is a branch devoid of leaves used for beating children. As a child I can remember visiting my grandmother and she would bring a switch into the kitchen and say the next person that got out of line would be whipped with that switch. It served as a bad behavior determent, but was it right? No, but was it child abuse? In the 60s and 70s children really had no rights and parents and grandparents were free to apply any form of discipline they saw fit, but those days are gone. Adrian Peterson has been indicted for child abuse and he claims he was doing to his child what was done to him. That might be true, but was it right then and is it right now? Share your thoughts.

Adrian Peterson is not so great according to Phil Mushnick

The death of Adrian Peterson’s 2 year old son is a tragedy, but the fact that Peterson met the child on his deathbed only compounds the tragedy. NY columnist Phil Mushnick decided to add his two cents to the mix and his column comes off as unduly mean spirited. Peterson is no saint but he did not deserve this hatchet job. I was not going to address this but a friend of mine sent me the link and it is worthy of a read.
