Keep it 100 lets act on this police violence like we actin on this Ray Rice case! Stay strong homie !

I could be wrong, but this to me sounds like:
"Hey, lets not forget who the real enemy is. Stop attacking a "brutha" and focus on the police."

And this one just isn't english so I have no idea.


I don't condone hittin women or think it's coo BUT if SHE ain't trippin then I ain't trippin.. Lets keep it movin lol let that man play!

On a serious note, I have no idea how someone can possibly think it's a good idea to defend ray rice. A picture says 1000 words but a video tells the truth. Truth is ray rice hit a woman, there is no excuse for that..

Well, he said: We should be focusing the media and public outrage at the police violence versus this one incident between one man and a woman. He obviously thinks this has gotten way too much attention when serious issues such as police violence which affect many more people. And the second tweet he is saying that he isn't condoning hitting a woman, but there were reports that she was the first to hit him (which she was, although spitting on someone is still considered assault so it was legally Ray who started and ended it). He was simply stating that if she weren't hitting him, that Paul George wouldn't be hitting a woman. This leaves open the possibility of hitting a woman if she hit a him first, obviously. Paul feels it is okay to have hit the woman since she struck first, and thinks the man should be able to go to work after such an incident.

If she ain't trippin (over it) neither should we is basically all he's saying. He has a point to some degree, people are always looking to support a cause and get involved in things that don't either involve them, or they know nothing about.

This happens everyday all around the world and it's awful, but to take away the guys livelihood, and to go after his bosses is ****ing pathetic.
Do we all just ignore the fact that he was clearly on the defensive, and removing himself from the situation wasn't exactly an option

What he is saying is that, the person that got hit (the wife) has the most reason to be mad. But she not only forgave I'm, but she married him. It makes no since at all for people who have nothing to do with Ray, to be more mad than she is. He is being punished for how the media feels, not for how his wife feels which is stupid. His wife doesn't want this, and she has the only right to be upset. But people are ruining her life by blowing something up that she and Ray are dealing with fine. They don't need anyone else's opinions. If she wants him to play football, then he should be playing. But he's not playing because the people that didn't get hit are upset. Its all about media making money, and people wanting to take everything from a dude.

People are getting upset over this issue far more than the Michael Brown incident. One case has a domestic dispute which has the woman perfectly fine now and telling people she and her husband put it behind them. The other situation has a guy 6 feet deep and a department full of officers basically high-fiving each other for the "good job" of gunning down an unarmed jay walker.

So, a 200+ pound NFL running back that is known to take hits as a career choice couldn't restrain a much smaller female for 20 seconds until the elevator opened? I find that ridiculous to believe. Knocking her out cold with her head hitting his fist, metal rail and hitting the floor can be deadly or lead to brain damage. None of that seemed to be worrisome when he dragged her out and REFUSED to get medical help or even show compassion or a sense of urgency to help his finance wake up. If his kid were there and his wife shoves him, is it okay for him to 'defend' himself with another punch in front of his daughter?

He deserved everything he's getting. Domesticated Violence has gone on now far too long without people realizing how damaging it is to our society and the domino effect it has on children growing up. Paul George rationalizing it is an embarrassment to everyone including black athletes. Perpetrating the racist stereotypes that are out there when it comes to violence and black men. He has no moral compass.

Really? Because I'm pretty sure the Brown incident caused like 2 weeks of riots, and basically 24/7 coverage on virtually all major news networks. Clearly this story is going to be more visible within the sporting world, because it's related to the NFL. Stop.

Pretty spot in. Bunch of these idiots saying things like that just watch sports center. If you looked anywhere you saw stuff about that incident . It was a much bigger deal nationally than Ray Rice.
And anybody that thinks Ray Rice should have an NFL job is just clueless. The sporting world has gone far to long allowing people to have jobs that wouldn't be able to have a job at McDonald's given their history. And I don't care if he and his wife have worked it out, you just can't have that **** from supposed professionals.
Pacman Jones is a perfect example. Had a guy paralyzed and when he was reinstated he joked about not going to gentlemens clubs anymore and everybody got a laugh out of it, bet the guy who can't walk anymore wasn't laughing.
The NFL and every league needs to crack down on this stuff and anybody that thinks otherwise is just out of touch with reality.

Exactly. Domestic Violence is no joke. It alters our society by the amount of physiological damage it produces to children and how they can perceive love and respect as they grow up. It usually leads to death or significantly bad injuries in most cases.

So, for someone like George to be the ONLY athlete to publically support Ray Rice in the midst of a sensitive situation shows his ignorance and his own true colors to a degree. He should be fined.

More than one perspective is in play here...

When you listen to and read what Paul George had to say.. he confined the activity as an act between Ray and Janay.. If Janay & Ray didn't want to see any outside action subsequent to the incident, then the incident is done and over.. Paul George is saying.. it's no one else's business..

In "our" alleged civilized society with the rule of law as one of it's tenants, if one party refuses to bring charges against another.. then that's the end of it.. With the intrusion of video so prevalent.. the fact the entire world can see into this activity.. made it an issue to be commented on..

It can be interpreted from George that his position was this.

and I disagree with him... inexcusable is inexcusable.. regardless if someone witnesses the act or not..

So if a woman stabs a man and then the man knocks her out, actually how about if a woman is beating the **** out of some guy and then he knocks her out, that's a crime on him?

Actually how about this wife starts going around talking **** about him and how she can do whatever she wants cuz "he ain't man enough" to stand up for himself and then he knocks her out.

American is such a cesspool of contradicting stupidity it's not even funny. And I'm not talking about George's tweet.

We want women to be treated as equal yet give them passes for their behavior because they are the weaker sex. If she spit of Ray then hit him and charged at him what did she think was going to happen? If this was Michael Sams and his male lover did the same exact thing and Sam acted as Ray Rice did this would not be a problem. Nobody should be hitting anyone else male or female. However when a person initiates the violence they deserve the lion share of the blame.

I'm far more disturbed by Greg Hardy's situation who's still playing mind you.

Both are bad situations, but I just feel relative to the crime the Ray Rice thing is way overblown.

Rice was arrested and served his punishment. He and his wife (publicly) put it behind them. The Rice case is over with. He's kicked off the team and out of the NFL indefinitely. What more is there to talk about? SMH.

In the other case you have a family with no justice and a murderer a free man.

And yet you have not only national or sports radio, but even local TV talking about Rice still.

While there's a small chance punching someone can be fatal there's an exponentially greater chance that shooting someone will be fatal. And those huge differences are known when people perform the two acts.

So if a man counter punching his lover is domestic violence what is it call for the woman who initiates the violence in the first place. If she knows he 200lbs of muscle why are you spitting on him, hitting him, and charging at him? Why can in a fit of rage she become uncontrollably aggressive, but he can't?

Man,what are you talking about? I can't understand how your post relates to mine. Domestic violence can involve a victim of both sexes. Said that it's well known that females are the majority of the victims,but that doesn't change the fact that domestic violence is genderless.
In this specific case Rice was a coward bastard and started the fight,raging in a animal way. He ko'd his girlfriend because she was upset at him spitting on her face. There is still a video. And using violence is this case was just plain stupid.
