Bye Josh. Sorry to say but a reopening of this case spells the end for him. No way John Mara can help him now

He should've been gone before the season started. And the way ownership had handled this has been despicable. Just as bad as the Ravens handling of the ray rice incident. This proves the nfl and owners don't care about domestic violence. It's really disgusting.

what disgusted me the most is when Mara said he knew of some domestic violence, but didn't know of what intent!!!!

Not to get controversial, but i'm assuming Mara saw the pictures (which don't show much if anything), heard BS from Brown, and heard from investigators that they are dropping the charges. Hard to fault him if thats all he knew.

If he knew of the journal, its way different.


"As to Brown, there were two mitigating factors, from the league’s perspective. First, the NFL didn’t regard the incident as a serious instance of domestic violence, since Brown simply grabbed his now-ex-wife’s wrist. (Many would say that any incident of domestic violence is serious.) Second, the NFL considered its difficulty in getting cooperation from Brown’s now-ex-wife or from law enforcement to be a mitigating factor."

To add to this, and I'm not saying I agree, but there is a bit of a grey area as far as what is the NFL's role vs. the team's role. And argument can easily be made that they should both investigate as much as possible but in reality, when investigators don't press chargers and the NFL doesn't take serious measures, why should the Giants do any more? It looks bad no matter what but I definitely don't think the giants were purposely avoiding the issue or trying to sweep it under the rug. I think they just took the lead from authorities and the NFL.

Don't care how good a kicker Josh Brown is, they should've never signed him. Domestic Violence is disgusting and the rate NFL players get away with it at is even worse. If convicted I think he should have a lifetime ban as with any other player convicted of Domestic Violence.

If Josh Gordon is suspended for three years for being an addict and hurting nobody but himself Josh Brown should have a much harsher penalty

The problem with this is you are going to punish a player for an allegation when the victim drops her charges and is unwilling to cooperate and wants her husband to keep his job. Not to mention the evidence didn't show much. Its not like Ray Rice where you have a video or Greg Hardy where you have bad bruises.
