    Deadspin's got a bunch of stuff on ESPN and the way they've reacted to the Ray Rice punishment. Interesting reading.

    ESPN puts out such an awful product if anyone could compete with them on the scope they are able to operate they'd be toast. Put me on Team Beadle here.

    Nothing wrong with what he said IMO.

    yep. Abused women really need to examine what they might have done to provoke their abuser. :jimlad:

    Stephen A didn't really apologize, he basically said the same thing on twitter then apologized that people were misconstruing him, which they weren't, he's just making a really stupid point. He'll have a nice long suspension at best from this and I wouldn't be surprised if he got let go.

    Dont' do anything that will get you hit/beaten/raped. In other words, its your fault for the physical harm another person does to you.

    If a man can't knock his lady out cold when she acts up just what is he allowed to do?

    I love how Stephen A. tries to defends his viewpoint by saying his mother was a victim of domestic violence (at least I think that's what he's trying to say, but how can you really tell)? and that makes him on authority on why women need to do more to not become victims.

    He'll absolutely get a suspension at this, with how much attention this thing is getting right now, there's no way ESPN doesn't do something to penalize him.

    What am I missing here? I guess I'm agreeing with Smith on this. I don't see where Beadle is getting this "mini skirt" stuff.

    I suppose I'm reading Smith's comments as 1) If you're in an abusive relationship - get out of it (harder done than said granted) or also

    2) [video=youtube_share;5ESYvRGXKJI]http://youtu.be/5ESYvRGXKJI[/video]

    If I walk through the ghetto carrying a wad of cash in my hand in the open and someone beats me and steals it, is it my fault? NO. But doesn't mean I couldn't have thought about what I was doing a little more.

    "But what I've tried to employ the female members of my family, some of who you all met and talked to and what have you, is that again, and this what, I've done this all my life, let's make sure we don't do anything to provoke wrong actions"

    What exactly is he talking about here, then?

    You are blowing this so out of context. I took it as there are ways women can prevent this from happening. He didn't say it's their fault when it does happen. What exactly did he say that isn't true?
