Countless, video-less incidents of domestic violence couldn’t get the NFL to this point. It took one video of a man hitting a woman, coupled with public outcry, for the League to open its eyes that domestic violence is a issue, one that should not carry a punishment less severe than smoking weed. Of course, not everyone involved with the NFL needs conclusive video evidence to realize the reality of the worlds. CBS’s James Brown, for instance, has been lobbying for change since the murder-suicide involving the Kansas City Chiefs’ Jovan Belcher and his girlfriend Kasandra Perkins. Last night, prior to the Ravens-Steelers game, Brown reiterated the necessity for wide-spread change, for men to step up and be a part of the solution.
