You bring up a great point here. Nice article.


Have to admit you have a great point, there is much more outrage for an old, rich owner than a young, stupid player.

And, Sterling did not commit any physical act of violence, he was only illegally recorded speaking garbage. Ray Rice committed serious physical injury to a woman and then spoke garbage at a press conference. Married her for protection against her testimony?

Totally agree. A man knocks his woman out and drags her around like a caveman and the media and the NFL yawn. Before this excellent article came out I wondered where's the outrage ?

I think he should be banned for life...what he did was far more serious than what the Clippers' owner did. But he won't be. Racism has the front page nailed down. Perhaps if this offending player were white and his girlfriend a minority?????

Nice article.

Sterling loses his NBA team for regrettable remarks, but a Rutgers professor says the Isla Vista shooting is due to "white privilege." I haven't heard anything about sanctions to her.

So, to sum it up, you can talk smack about whites, but not blacks, and you can hit women, but you can't talk about gays.

The local media wants to hang BYU for "sock gate" and it's been the constant fodder for talk radio for two weeks. Seem ironic that the Ray Rice situation gets swept under the elevator rug!


Great posts. To me it's just another illustration of how incredibly out of whack our society has become. Oh for the good ol' days, but it'll never happen. Follow the money, folks. Pro sports are so outlandlishly worshiped that all reason and sense has flown the coop.

You have a good point here.

When you get punished for talking mean to a teammate (who is big and strong and able to defend himself)... but nothing happens when you knock out a defenseless woman... there's something wrong with how we look at things, and justify some, while punishing others.

Ray Rice should get at least the punishment Incognito got. Instead... nothing. I guess they're saying she deserved it?

great article, we can thank our president for how people think about these situations, he has changed the moral compass of our nation!

The NAACP would do more good by focusing on the group they are trying to help, rather than going around blaming everyone else for the struggles of that particular group.

Where's the outrage in the aftermath of any case of domestic abuse? It's never there, and that has a lot more to do with religion than it has with president Obama.
