Interestingly, the NFL fared worse among men, whose score was -27, than women, which came in at -8.

And now we dislike them even more for the Adrian Peterson problem.

But their biggest problem is the commissioner Goodell. He gots to go!

Spurrier was asked about Ray Rice’s situation on Tuesday, to which he gave the following reply (via

I’ve had a rule ever since I’ve been here that if you ever hit a girl, you’re not going to play on our team. You’re finished. And we’ve had two players here – one was about seven years ago, the other was about nine years ago.

We’re not going to have any player on our team that’s done that. I can’t understand why every coach doesn’t have that rule and why every company doesn’t have that rule for their employees. I think it could put a pretty good end to this stuff. Really, it’s amazing that America has sorta put up with it or compromised, but that is something that should never happen. Our players know that they’re gone if they hit a girl. They know it.

I would think that every coach would have that rule, but I don’t think they do. I think some of them say, “Well, let’s wait and look at the situation.” And you do have to do that, but once you know it’s happened, you do have to put an end to it.

He gots to go!
