iamdust replied to your post: espnW and ESPN Radio will collab…

They need a regular show. ESPN should give them First Take’s time slot.

I agree. The fact that it took a domestic violence case for women to be able to voice their opinions on the NFL is ridiculous. And this particular domestic violence case is only being discussed at the length it deserves because of the video evidence. It took video evidence for people at large to recognize that what happened was wrong. Even then, the players that have spoken out against it have only been able to sympathize when they make it relative to their lives, “If that were my daughter/sister/wife/mother…” And from what I heard on the show, other players are hesitant to voice their opinions because they don’t want people to think all players are abusers aka another “not all men” argument. Which, like, okay - here’s one way to let audiences know you’re not a monster: speak out against domestic violence. Hold yourself and your teammates accountable. Speak to young men playing football at college/high school and lower levels about separating the violence that takes place on the field from the way they conduct themselves elsewhere, educate them. God. Sorry for the rant!

Ha’a Keaulana runs across the ocean floor with a 50 pound boulder. They do this as training to survive the massive surf waves of winter. She learned her amazing skills from her dad, legendary waterman #briankeaulana and her Grandpa, #Buffalo. I was very humbled to learn from the Hawaiians who have salt water running through their veins. Mahalo Nui Loa. Please stay tuned for our upcoming story on the Hawaiian surfing culture.

Shame on all of us. Shame on us that we need to actually see the video tape of Janay Rice getting knocked unconscious to actually realize that violence against women took place in that elevator. Shame on the Ravens for treating violence against women like an exercise in public relations. Shame on the NFL for being so untrustworthy - whether we’re talking about concussions, players’ health, and now violence against women - that nobody in their right mind should believe them when they say that they haven’t seen this tape before. But most important, shame on all of us for not actually thinking about Janay Rice at this moment in particular and what it’s doing to her that this video tape is now being released and re-released. We were all very upset with good reason about celebrities having their photos hacked and their nudes out there, and what it means to click on those videos, I’m just wondering, if everybody clicking on this video tape, how does that serve the interests of Janay Rice in this very difficult time in her life?
