Moral Of The Puny Ray Rice Ban Is Hit Women, Not Weed

Ladies, I need to tell you a secret that should have been spilled a long time ago.

The NFL doesn't care about you.

They sell a bunch of pink stuff during their yearly propaganda campaign aimed at making you think they aren’t that bad of a place to work. A campaign aimed directly at you in the hopes you’ll let your sons become the next generation of meat to be ground down into crippled, brain damaged shells of their former selves. Pink stuff that generates millions of dollars in profit for the league while the league gives a pathetic amount of the proceeds to breast cancer research. Because …

The NFL doesn't care about you.

They have cheerleader squads full of young women. Squads that don’t make five dollars an hour. Squads currently suing the league for minimum wage. Yes, the women cheering on the field, sometimes in 20-degree weather, don’t make enough to buy groceries for their families while the billionaire owners sit in their heated suites watching them shake their spare change makers.

Next week Josh Gordon is scheduled to meet with the league office and it’s widely assumed he will be suspended for the entire season. Josh Gordon’s crime? He smoked some weed. The same crime Ace Sanders was convicted of yesterday when he was suspended for four games this upcoming season. The same crime Justin Blackmon was convicted of when he was suspended twice last season and missed 12 total games. Yes, the NFL handed out 32 games worth of suspensions for smoking weed and two games for beating a woman unconscious. This is the same league that suspended Ben Roethlisberger four total games for his second sexual assault of a woman a few years back. That’s right, the NFL treats the personal consumption of marijuana as a far worse crime than the physical and sexual abuse of a woman. Because …
