Resign Goodell?!? NFL Commisioner Candidates

          Link to Stop Domestic Violence.
          NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell is being pressured to resign. (Bob and weave commish, watch for the jab.) Sports Philosopher asks the question: Who are the new candidates? Is it Bobby Brown? Chris Brown of the fighting Brown's? Should we rename the Super Bowl trophy the Ike Turner? Link to Stop Domestic Violence
          Or should we call on a Marine officer, who fights for those who cannot fight for themselves. I am giving the NFL a hard time, and I get a great amount of entertainment watching. However, I get less enjoyment hearing about brutality against those that should be cherished, and it is only a few that tarnish for the large amount of players who contribute to the community and are unbelievably dedicated to their dreams, and give sacrifice for them.
          
          Why am I so passionate about this issue? I have a friend that was my counterpart in frequenting some establishments in the downtown area. In the corner of his eye, he saw a man slap what we surmised was his girlfriend. My buddy crossed a four lane busy city street and stepped in front of the man and exclaimed, "Hit me!" It was one of those moments that I will never forget. Also, my mother has been counseling women who are victims of domestic violence for over 35 years.
          I don't ask her for any details, one description is enough.
