The NFL announced what was seen as a tough new policy on domestic violence little more than two weeks ago. It's already in shambles.
Allegations that Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson injured one of his sons by spanking him with a tree branch are reviving a debate about corporal punishment in a country where it is on the decline but still widely practiced in homes and schools. A: In every state in the country, a parent can legally hit their child as long as the force is "reasonable."
In the span of five days, America's favorite sport bombarded fans with a video of one player punching his wife, details about a former MVP hitting his son with a tree branch, reminders of two more lingering domestic violence cases - all being overseen by a commissioner, Roger Goodell, who has looked ill-suited to handle any of it. Friday also brought news that speaks to the oversized violence of the game: One story about a study that showed nearly three in 10 ex-players face Alzheimer's or moderate dementia; and another about the long-awaited implementation of a policy to test for human growth hormone.
State police say one trooper was fatally shot and another was injured when they were ambushed outside a state police barracks in northeastern Pennsylvania. A search is underway for the suspect or suspects.
In this Jan. 13, 2013, file photo, Baltimore Ravens owner Steve Bisciotti speaks with reporters in New Orleans. In the wake of the Ray Rice domestic violence fallout, Bisciotti said he let fans down by not investigating the incident as aggressively as he should have, in part because he wanted to believe his former star running back hadn't viciously punched his then-fiancee the way an explicit video showed he had.
In an interview with MTV's Sway Calloway Thursday, Brown opened up about his own history with domestic violence in light of Rice being cut from the Baltimore Ravens and suspended from the league after a leaked video depicted the player punching his now-wife, Janay Rice. "To Ray or anybody else, because I'm not better than the next man, I can just say I've been down that road," Brown told MTV News.
New stadiums present hurdles for broadcasters, too. Dan Dierdorf, who was with CBS at the time, was touring the lower level of the St. Louis Rams' gleaming new TWA Dome in 1995 when he starting looking around for the broadcast booth.
Hours after the players' union voted Friday to accept an NFL proposal on drug policy changes that included HGH testing, the league says it is not a done deal. Player representatives to the union also voted for changes to marijuana testing, classification for amphetamines, punishment for driving under the influence and neutral arbitration on appeals.
Wes Welker has passed concussion protocol and could be back on the field as soon as Sunday if the NFL signs off on a new drug policy approved by the players' union. Representatives of the NFL Players Association approved the comprehensive new policy Friday that includes implementation of testing for HGH and an increase in the threshold for testing positive for marijuana.
An arrest warrant was issued Friday for star Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson after he was indicted in Texas on a charge of child abuse for using a branch to spank his son. His team benched him for this weekend's game against New England.
