    The domestic violence rule doesn't apply to just wife beaters. It applies to bar fights or any type of assaults for that matter.

    A MAN SHOULD BE ABLE TO DEFEND HIMSELF IF SOMEBODY IS ATTACKING HIM. I don't care what the sex of the attacker is. If a woman wants to act like a man, then she should be treated as such. A MAN SHOULD BE ABLE TO DEFEND HIMSELF.

    No double standards.

    I agree a man should be able to defend himself with a reasonable response. Did this happen in the situation? It hasn't been reported. If that isn't the case, then tough **** on him.

    And now the argument has completely changed.

    Now it's about self defense?

    You agree to represent the organization in a reasonable manner. He signed the contract. He didn't have to.

    Ffs dude. Get with the times and stop being so stuck in 1950.
    Ever heard of double jeopardy?

    If the players dont like the personal conduct policy, get it revised in the next CBA. Otherwise, if the players dont have a problem with it, then neither should anyone here.

    Yes. But this doesn't apply here. An employer should be able to discipline an employee for detrimental conduct. It's a separate entity.

    Double jeopardy only matters in a court of law. Not to mention, it only applies if someone is declared innocent that they can't be charged with the same crime.

    So you think that stuff like invasion of privacy shouldn't matter either?

    Invasion of privacy regarding what? What does that have to do with this?

    Getting involved in a player's personal life... Especially during the offseason.

    A potential crime is involved and he violated the CBA, according to MLB. There is no legal grounds for invasion of privacy, nor should there be.

    The thing that I find hypocritical is that when a fight occurs on a baseball field, players don't go to jail and they don't receive 75 game suspensions.

    Same with hockey. The game legislates itself at times but technically that can be described as battery too (remember Marty McSorley)

    But this is something entirely different. This is a man physically assaulting a woman. A disgusting crime in which (if he's guilty) deserves to be punished personally and professionally. Being a MLB player is a privilege, not a right. Again if these players have a problem with the terms of their conduct policy, revise it. Otherwise, they need to abide by the rules they collectively bargained.

    I would say a human attacking another human is disgusting. I don't care about the sexes involved. We're all equal or should at least be considered equal.

    No 200 plus pound man should be hitting a woman half his size. The only justification would be if his life was in danger and I've seen no reports of that.

    He deserves whatever punishment he gets. If I'm MLB, I don't want to appear easy on wife beaters. Not to mention if you slap a wife beater on the wrist what stops him from doing it again? The idea being if you go to jail and lose millions of dollars in the process perhaps that's enough incentive to get your **** together and learn to be a decent human being.
