On Thursday when news broke about New York Giants kicker Josh Brown and the disturbing stories of his abuse of his wife, Ravens’ wideout Steve Smith Sr. left NO DOUBT where he stood on the issue.

Eight hours later Smith, whose mother is a domestic violence survivor, penned this very strong tweet about the NFL…

It reads…

“We have valued the amount of air in a ball but yet devalued when a person or persons may have been harmed and fail to put forth necessary actions of energy and time in which far less important things have taken precedent!”

“There have been players with far less [offenses,] some have been banned, cut on the spot. But this person had behavior patterns behind closed doors unknown to everyone while swift and harsh action handed down to many players without half the details or amount of time.”

“Our system is broken the NFL needs to stop acting like they care and start showing people they mean what they say. I will continue to speak for the voiceless and for my mother who is a survivor of domestic violence.”

Smith also tweeted a photo of the cleats he plans to wear this weekend to try to bring even more awareness to this issue…

If only more people involved in the NFL felt as passionately about this as Steve Smith Sr.
