SORT BY Relevancy
The NFL appears to have a huge problem with players committing acts of domestic abuse. In recent weeks three NFL players found themselves at the center of controversy for abusing women in their lives. The most notable is Ray Rice, who was seen on video knocking his wife unconscious on an elevator. On the heels of this story is an account of Jonathan Dwyer of the Arizona Cardinals accused of head butting his wife and breaking her nose after she refused his sexual advances. Then there is Greg Hardy, “The Kraken”, of the Carolina Panthers. In July, Greg Hardy was found guilty of assaulting his former girlfriend and threatening to kill her.
These were the most notable abusive acts by NFL players against women recently. There is another NFL player that has made the news for an abusive act. However, in this case it wasn’t against a woman.
Adrian Peterson, of the Minnesota Vikings, is accused of going too far in disciplining his four year old son. It is said that Peterson used a “switch” in disciplining his son and left bruises on the child.
ESPN writer Kate Fagan weighed in during an interview and called on the NFL to invest millions of dollars to address the issue of domestic violence and abuse. She even conveyed that we need to reprogram how we raise men.
What are your thoughts on domestic violence? Do you think it’s gotten worse over the years? What can be done to resolve this social ill? Does the Holy Bible offer a solution?

In 2013, Nate Askew made the switch from receiver to linebacker for his final season at Texas A&M. During his freshman through junior seasons, Asker was used sparingly catching nine passes over that period. His senior season at linebacker Askew played in all 12 games at linebacker, starting at Arkansas and against Missouri. 33 stops on the year, with 22 solo tackles. He also ranked second on the team with two interceptions. He return an interception 30 yards for a touchdown and joined a small group of players who have scored both offensive and defensive touchdowns in their careers with the Aggies. Had a career-high seven stops against Missouri, with four solo tackles and an assisted sack. The biggest boost to his NFL Draft stock was running a 4.45 at his Pro Day which beats any time recorded at the position from the 2014 NFL Scouting Combine.

NFL, Clubs, and Players Union – Be careful what you ask for?
IS THE NFL VICARIOUSLY LIABLE FOR THE ACTS OF ITS PLAYERS?
This episode will examine how the NFL has handled the recent allegations of domestic violence and child abuse. We will discuss whether the role of the NFL and its players union should include disciplinary actions against players for acts committed in their personal lives. We will also examine whether disciplinary action has been or is fair and impartial and what role does race play, if at all, in addressing off the field acts committed by players. Finally, this episode will examine whether the NFL has been inclusive or exclusive in handling issues like drugs, domestic violence, and race and off the field acts committed by its players.
We will look at the issue of NFL players expressing their politics before a game PLUS the special election in Louisiana and Obama Care vs Democrats.
