Things within in the NFL are getting worse with new issues of domestic violence by players popping up every day. Arizona Cardinals back up running back Jonathan Dwyer can now add his name to the list of athletes, (including Adrian Peterson, Ray Rice, Greg  Hardy and Ray McDonald) who are being accused of domestic violence after he allegedly broke the nose of his girlfriend.

With the list of these type of incidents increasing, NFL commissioner Roger Goodell is coming under heavy fire and the question is being raised of if there is a growing issue of mental health among NFL players that are causing these types of incidents. Also, we'll examine why similar incidents by athletes like Hope Solo and Johnny Weir aren’t getting the same amount of outrage by the public and the media. 

To give us all insights on this issue will be CNN contributor and former ESPN editor Keith Reed. Tune in this Saturday at 10am for the discussion.
