I'm so sick and tired of reading what you all have to say about Hardy and Winston off the field!!! My problem with your comments are the a few people or really no one is recognizing the different because the cause (or maybe correlation, but I doubt it) of sexual abuse and/or actual cases of rape and the symptoms of players who commits those terrible acts.

This post is not an apology or excuse for Ray Rice, Greg Hardy, Roethlisberger, Winston, etc. Etc. My hope is that people will think more critically about why these types of acts, along with homophobic or racist behaviors, are so prevalent at ALL LEVELS of american football (high school too)!

I think the answer lies in the culture football promotes, which is highly violent and masculine. So I wish in future discussions of the image of Tampa bay people give more thought to the values that football promotes.

This is probably just best to lock up. Bucsfantx we try to keep it just football talk around here because things turn into a slippery slope VERY fast around here.

Thanks
