You guys are right. He should have just beaten his wife.
That's what's so unfair about the situation. He's not (as far as I know) even married, so he didn't even have that option available to him.
The NFL has guidelines bargained with the NFL Players Association setting out penalties for using illegal and performance-enhancing drugs. Roger is following those guidelines in the case of Gordon.
No one said they advocate for domestic violence. I think league should have a stricter policy on the matter. For years, the league has not given out stiff penalties for domestic violence and no one seemed to care until the Ray Rice incident that included a video (which actually didn't show us anything incriminating). Once there was a video, social media blew up and it became a PR nightmare. Where was everyone during the 85 domestic violence cases that have occurred in the NFL since 2000? Out of the 85 cases, the NFL suspended 6 players for 1 game each and only 2 players for 2 games (Ray Rice and I don't know who the other is). Unfortunately, the league was being consistent with their past domestic violence rulings. They need to publicly outline a new and stricter policy regarding domestic violence and then keep it consistent with stiffer penalties.
How is Brandon Marshall even still playing in the league?

3/6/2008 Denver WR Brandon Marshall Arrested in Atlanta after his longtime girlfriend claimed in an affidavit that Marshall hit her in the mouth and left eye March 4. NFL suspended him one game after this, his third arrest in a year. Acquitted.

She married him after the incident.
Brandon Marshall has a legitimate medical condition. Josh Gordon appears to be just be a bit of a dumbass.
The Browns… the name alone is worth a laugh! Keep on sucking it Cleveburg.
They should have LeBron take Gordon's place!
He has a medical condition that causes him to beat up women?
Maybe Gordon could say he medically needs weed.
He has borderline personality disorder and it is not bullshit.
Okay, predictions for the Super Bowl?
Called SEA-DEN this time last year
Love my 'Hawks so want to see them do it again and I think they will.

How much are you loving the glimpses of a healthy Percy Harvin? He has looked out of sight so far in the preseason. If he can stay healthy, it will be a game changer for the O.
Green Bay over Denver.
Peyton chokes again!
Ever since he was diagnosed and has taken measures to control it, he's been an exemplary player.
Is it Marshall, Rice, or Gordon who has the border line?
