    I think you guys are getting caught up in this too much. By the third/fourth week of the season, this story is forgotten. At the end of the day, money talks and the NFL will still be bringing in cash by the boatload. No sponsors are boycotting, no fans are boycotting. The media and some players are calling for Goodells head but unless someone has him on tape saying he doesn't give a shit about this Rice issue, he will still be the commissioner by the end of the season. And Rice will play again this season or get a fair amount of the money from his contract, he just has to sue the league/Ravens.

    He has weathered homicides, "bullying", concussions, drugs, etc. the list is endless. This will all blow over in a few weeks until another controversy arises to take its place

    There would have been much more outrage had people been expecting Rice to be a bigger fantasy stat producer.

    The only way I see this story really getting much worse is if we actually find out that Goodell had seen the video in question. Otherwise, I think it will eventually blow over. I also find it absurd that people are directing more outrage towards the NFL than the prosecutors who probably had more access to things like the video and chose to let Rice off with a slap on the wrist. It's really not the NFL's job to act as a supplemental criminal justice system in a broad sense for off the field issues, escially in cases where the stakes are so high and the NFL is not exactly known for providing due process in its investigations.

    Hm... this one is all mixed up in moral relativism. The weirdo religious tweets creep me out.
