It’s funny because it’s true.

Via The Onion: NFL Announces New Zero-Tolerance Policy On Videotaped Domestic ViolenceIMG_1506.JPGPersonally, I’d have gone with joking about any videotaped violence involving players is property of the NFL, and how distribution is prohibited without express written permission. But I guess that’s why The Onion has 4 million Facebook followers and I have 37 (in a row?).

But come to think of it, isn’t it interesting how the NFL has such explicit and concrete rules about consent?

Quoth the Ravens, “Nevermore.”

See, now I’m curious about this issue, and the NFL and Ben Rothless-whatever, and what behavior, exactly, is tolerated from these athletes. But I feel like I’m a) out of my element, and b) just going to end up hating humanity more than I already do.

Because, while I’m glad they did this, albeit months too late and, I think, only because they absolutely had no choice, aren’t we still letting other men play sports who have hit, and raped, women?

Or is it just that this one was dumb enough to do it in front of a camera? (Genuine question, one that’s probably already been asked a million times with no answers.)
