It looks like you're trying to shoot a free throw. Would you like to use the Free Throw Wizard for future free throws?

And that apparently makes Rice's punching bag sad.

Saw that, more than slightly horrifying to see someone defend the person who beat the shit out of them.

it fits a lot of common profiles of abuse victims, hence the whole #whyistayed thing (which digiorno really should've read before they used it)

roger goodell and the nfl in general have been impressively bad these past few months

Only saw the week one highlights this morning - stupid Europe - but was pissing myself with laughter by the end of Romo's 'performance' v SF. Rolling in the aisles. Go fuck yourself Dallas.

Also, is it true that the NFL saw footage of Rice's knockout performance 5 months ago? News on the issue is pretty sketchy over here.

the AP quoted a law enforcement official who said he sent them the video in April, and they acknowledged having received it. the only plausible way Goodell didn't then see the video is if he refused to watch it.

So Bill Belichick beat one of Adrian Peterson's kids and forced the kid to blame AP so the Vikings would deactivate him just for the game last Sunday, allowing New England to avoid a 0-2 start. The man's a football genius!
