If you don't know by now, the NFL's punishment for Ray Rice's actions toward his wife was a two game suspension. Does this open the door for athletes? Do you believe some players in the major sports will get the idea that they can "get away" with it like Ray did? What is your opinion? There are two sides to all stories. But, I am a proponent of being able to protect yourself. The "never hit a woman" rule does not give women carte blanche to do whatever they want, say whatever they want, etc. Especially in the times we live in now. Men will kill you, without blinking. Why put yourself in an ill position on purpose, especially with someone you "know" is violent. Now, if a man without any provocation or reason just starts beating a woman senselessly, there is no reason for that. Whoopi Goldberg and other women have said there is no reason a woman should put her hands on a man. And there is no reason a man should put his hands on a woman. But if a woman does so, she leaves the door open for a response. If you shoot a gun at someone, expect to get shot back. The reason this issue is so big, the essence that athletes, movie starts, musicians have an elevated right to do whatever they want, whenever they want and it's "swept under the rug" and "all is forgiven" after a period of time. It's not. You know there were women blaming Rhianna for getting beat up by Chris Brown? Does that sound reasonable?
The Arizona Cardinals had bad news with the drig suspension of Pro Bowl linebacker Daryl Washington. Jess and Seth talk about the implications. Should the team have paid him his bonus and kept Karlos Dansby around? Does he have a future in Arizona after the suspension? What will the Cardinals to do to replace him? Do the Cardinals have a chance to make the NFL playoffs in 2014, or are their chances done? Is Kevin Minter ready to be the leader and playmaker in the middle of the field?
With the NBA Finals set between the Spurs and Heat, we talk about the keys to the series and who we predict will win. Then we dive into the Daryl Washington suspension and what it means for the Arizona Cardinals and the NFL. Finally, we end the show giving our Super Bowl predictions and who will come out on top.
Stephen A. Smith Suspended from ESPN and First Take for seven days for his comments on Ray Rice and the responsibilty of women in these situations.
Helping High School students athletes to get considered for and accepted at colleges and universities is our Mission. We offer parents, coaches, schools, business community and anyone else that influences the life of a student athlete, the tools and resources they need to advance their academic and athletic pursuits.
BEYOND FINDING THE RIGHT SCHOOL
Student athletes not only want to get into a college or university, they also are looking for scholarship opportunities. Identifying student athletes that are capable of garnering scholarship opportunities isn't simple. In an arena of just over 7 million High School students athletes only 2% of those students will receive some level of scholarship.
In this competitive arena MYP2P is the first and only social network that brings coaches, players and pros together to help kids reach their goals and realize their dreams. We will work tirelessly to help make the connections and foster the athletic excellence that's required to get recognized by Colleges, Universities, Scouts and Coaches.
ATHLETES, DOMESTIC VIOLENCE, AND ARE WE TAKING IT SERIOUSLY?
We’ve all seen the headlines- Ray Rice gets two game suspension for knocking his fiancé unconscious and dragging her off a casino elevator. Joe Mixon under investigation for punching a woman in the face. One of the Steubenville high school students convicted of rape is back on the football field. The news reports go on and on with allegations and prosecutions of athletes at all levels for violence against women. And what are we doing about it? The NFL gives a slap on the hand to Rice (who could have been suspended for numerous games if he had smoked a joint). Sports fans still line up for autographs, and the victims are disparaged for “ruining” the athlete’s life. Have we really slipped down the rabbit hole when it comes to seriously dealing with violent athletes?
So let’s talk about it. Brian O’Connor, Director of Public Education Campaigns and Programs for Futures Without Violence where he crafts national and international violence prevention campaigns for a variety of audiences. He’s former marketer of global brands such as Gatorade and Kodak, and reporter for the Village Voice. His work engaging men inspires them to model positive masculinity and teach boys that violence never equals strength. Brian holds a master's from Columbia University and is a member of the National Association of Black Journalists. He is the former president of the board of Root Division, an arts education non-profit based in San Francisco where he lives.

Journey to the top of the Swiss Alps as Travel Brigade visits the town of Engelberg, Switzerland, and heads 10,000 feet up to the top of Mount Titlis on the 360-degree-rotating Rotair tram. The mountain is so high there is a glacier on top year-round and we’ll tell you how you can walk through an ice cave and take the “Cliff Walk” suspension bridge that offers incredible views across the top of the Alps. We’ll talk about amazing skiing in the winter as well as great year round activities on the mountain. You’ll also get a taste of the classic Swiss experience of walking through a mountain meadow while listening to the cow bells ringing on your way to a traditional swiss meal of Alplermagronen. In the charming village of Engelberg at the base of the mountain, we’ll visit a Show Cheese factory and take a horse carriage ride to a centuries old monastery. Enjoy the trip!

Quite simply, we need happier days.
