Back when I first wrote about my disappointment in the NFL late in July over the issuing of a paltry two-game suspension for Ray Rice, their continued defense of the Redskins in keeping their offensive name, and their shameful apathy towards former players with lifelong injuries and illnesses, I thought for a hot second about stating that I would boycott the NFL for those reasons.
Because writing it would mean I would have to actually boycott the NFL – I may not be winning Pulitzers over here, but I don’t lie – I stopped short of doing so. I was disappointed and frustrated, but not yet disgusted.
Well, now I’m disgusted.
For the rest of the season, I won’t be sending any money the NFL’s way, directly or indirectly. No watching any games, buying any tickets, or buying pink Ray Rice jerseys.
Adrian Peterson beat the shit out of his 4-year old son. He stuffed the child’s mouth with leaves from a tree branch, then proceeded to whip the boy with said branch on his bare buttocks, thighs, testicles, and hands, drawing blood. If you want to see what it looked like, click here.
