It's been a long and tough week with the Ray Rice saga currently casting a dark cloud over the NFL. After months of mishandling by the NFL, the Baltimore Ravens and the media covering this story, Rice has finally been cut from his now former team and suspended indefinitely by the Commissioner Roger Goodell. Why did it take nearly four months from the original, ludicrous suspension of merely two games for jsutice to be served?

I explain why the NFL, Roger Goodell and multiple reporters throughout the country should be burned at the stake over this insane display of stupidity. 

To make matters more detestable, the NBA faces yet another case of organizational racism, this time from general manager of the Atlanta Hawks Danny Ferry. After the Donald Sterling saga, one would hope that the issue of race would no longer harm the landscape of the sport. Sadly, Mr. Ferry and the Hawks proved this week that this is not just an organizational issue, but a league-wide issue.
