I personally think that the league knew about the knockout video way before 2 weeks ago or whenever it was posted. Police had it whole time. What disturbs me the most is the fact everybody is crying about "Due Process" for players, but what good is "Due Process" if our own justice system just gives Rice counseling anyways? I think Goodell had to know something and they tried to cover it up in hoping it wouldn't be made public for whatever reason.
The players sign a paper when becoming part of the NFL that they need to hold them to hire standards and that includes above "Due Process" and the law. Rich people can get out of jail, hire great lawyers and get off way too easy if just letting the law solve these issues. It is a huge privilege to play in the NFL and guys who beat their wives or gets should start getting banned.
Ray Rice doesn't deserve to be back in the league in my opinion. It's no excuse for AP to stay I was raised this way, admitted it and doesn't think that big of deal about it and it is in the name of love, some horseshit.
What is sad is that most likely the Justice system won't do shit, cause the laws in Texas are way lenient, but if tried in Minny, he would probably go to jail (still doubt it with who he is).
So, should the NFL just let the justice system handle that? I think NFL should have suspended him right away for they year. Problem is, nobody was going to do shit with these players until Money and sponsors start dropping, so then they are forced to. Money has more say and power than the fucked up moral compass of the NFL, league and it's owners.
If Radisson doesn't drop from Vikes sponsors, then Peterson plays this week, just sick. Just because you were raised by getting beat and that is the old ways, doesn't mean it is right, we should be smarter than this as a society, sadly there are a lot of dumb, old generation mother fuckers out there still.

2 games is the longest suspension for a domestic abuse. Only difference here is that there is a video with Rice. I think a lot of hate if warranted but the system is fucked up as is anyways and needs changing.
Peterson is fucked up dude too. 4 year old kid smfh.
Dash: I fell asleep in the 3rd quarter of both games. Bucks/Hawks was hype though.

Dash: Bucks are not a good team and are only in because Nets/Hawks got injured. They look several steps behind Phoenix.

sativa417: I'm not a Chris Paul fan, since I hate his flopping and Grizz played his Clipps in some good playoff series, so he's like the enemy to me, but still a great player, so down for him finally getting a ring. Crazy Suns are where they are now. When James Jones

kfilament: its interesting how everyone wanted to put an asterisk next to last years champions, but honestly this year seems fluky as hell with injuries, etc., but yeah, hate CP3 as a grizz fan by not mad to see him win one.
