Okay. Let me get this straight. You are saying that drunken men beat women for getting in front of televisions. And you are blaming football? So the choice of television programming causes domestic violence? Hmmmmm. Perhaps people need to get out and see a parade.

I agree. The defense carried the Packers and the defense locked up the win at the end. The Super Bowl was just like the Packer's season. The defense did it while overcoming injuries just as it did throughout the season.

Juanita-I don't promote abuse from one person to another in any shape or form. But you make the case for a roll of ductape and a corkscrew for where it is inserted.

Actually Juanita, you are 100% incorrect. The "study" which proved that there are more cases of domestic abuse on super bowl Sunday than any other day of the year is unfounded and a quasi-experiment that you cannot use to determine causality, correlation maybe but even that would be a stretch. The findings were not statistically significant and there are number of confounding variables that can be cited. I volunteer and Catalyst Domestic Violence Services and my major is Psychology and my minor is family relations; in both my Psychology of Women and Statistical Methods we courses learned about this study, and how bogus the claim is. There is no true experiment with statistically significant findings which proves that domestic violence increases or that there is a higher instance of domestic violence incidents on super bowl Sunday as opposed to any other Sunday, or day for that matter.

I usually never comment on here, but I couldn't read something completely untrue and not say anything. So Juanita, I hope you were either trying to be funny or get a rise out of people. If not, please be informed before making such claims. You are just perpetuating ignorance to get your stupid point across.

According to reports, Jerry Jones started drinking early again.
He's trying to forget the ice on the roof of Cowboy Stadium, the seat fiasco, Christina Aguilera's screeching, and the lousy halftime show.
Somebody mentioned the pickpockets, pimps, hookers, and blind siders in and out of the Stadium and the gas siphoners in the parking lots and he ordered a full bottle at his table.

Honestly, I don't think it surprises anyone that Juanita has no idea what she is talking about. Anybody that would blame a sporting event for domestic abuse is obviously a fool.

Hey Jaunita, more people die in cars than in wars so why the hell arn't the peace protesters picketing gas stations? Right?

And we all know that there is more bad grammar at NASCAR events than at any other venue, so its simple isn't it, if we want to improve education ban NASCAR.

And I heard a higher percentage of the audeience of Broke Back Mountain was gay than any other film, surely this must be one of the causes of Homosexuality, right?

You are being unfair to Juanita ~ of course the conclusion is correlative and not causal. It seems to me that you could use a course in critical thinking to supplement your stats class. How could any study draw a causal link between a TV event and domestic abuse? That is too high of a burden of proof Ö and it is the same argument the tobacco industry used when they said there were other factors to consider as to why people who smoke get lung cancer donít blame it on cigarettes, they argued, perhaps the smokers donít exercise enough, or eat too much meat, or work in dirty factories etc etc, it canít be PROVEN it was the cigarettes Ö but checking common sense at the door doesnít help.

Beside, the domestic abuse goes up on Super Bowl Sunday claim isnít based on studies it is based on phone calls to 911. Nationwide police have a 40% increase of calls reporting domestic disputes on Super Bowl Sunday ~ this isnít an experiment or a study trying to establish significance ~ this is a tally of the number of phone calls that come in on that day.(It his far higher in the south by the way than it is in Ca). But what factor other than the Super Bowl might account for the increase of reported domestic abuse on Super Bowl Sunday other than the Super Bowl itself? Any ideas? I think Juanitaís point is well taken. You can celebrate football in spite of the increase of violence associated with it but to suggest there is no relationship is to put your head in the sand Ö I would hope one who works for catalyst would be more sensitive to abuse and the causes of it. Perhaps catalyst will have a float at the parade. Great.

Incorrect again, the claims are based on study conducted by Janet Katz at Old Dominion University. She had no systematic data to back up her claims yet overzealous womens coalitions and radical feminists organizations took her BS claim and used it to persecute the Super Bowl and place blame in the wrong directions. NBC aired a PSA reminding men domestic violence is the crime and an organization called Dobisky Associates even went as far as mailing women warnings advising them not to stay at home with their husbands on Super Bowl Sunday. It wasn't until a reporter at the Washington Post began to dig deeper into the findings of this study that it began to get debunked. I AM sensitive to abuse and the causes of it you idiot, that is why I do work at catalyst and that is also why I would like to see the finger pointed in the right direction. We will never get anywhere in getting justice to abuse victims or stopping the cycle of abuse if you do not understand the actual causes of violence and ways to prevent. Wasting time by pointing fingers at the Super Bowl is just plain silly, I think it is you that could use a critical thinking course if you truly believe I am hardly being "unfair" to Juanita.

The study you are talking about, the Katz study, was conducted in the mid nineties (1993 if I remember correctly)~ By refuting a specific study you are not refuting the facts of a issue. Just like calling me (and Juanita) idiots does not make us ones. Youíd learn about the limits of ad hominum attacks and intimidation language in a critical thinking class. You say not to waste time pointing fingers at that which isnít the real cause of domestic abuse and I agree with you. So then how do you account for the increase of violence against women on Super Bowl Sunday each year if it isnít related to the Super Bowl? I am very curious. Each year, since 1993(after the study you are referring to) 911 calls reporting domestic abuse increase on average by 40% on Super Bowl Sunday. Is it just a coincidence that it happens each year on Super Bowl Sunday? Is it unrelated to the fact that people are watching the Super Bowl? That is possible of course but it seems unlikely being that it has happened each for over a decade now on this particular day. You say you are sensitive to issues of domestic abuse and I have no reason not to believe you. And I want to believe you because we need help. But ignoring the facts related to violence against women is not helping those of us who want to stop violence against women. Please, lead, follow or get out of the way.

Oh Jesus Lord I have no desire to argue with you, especially since we seem to be arguing for the same team. My point was this, the first step towards ending domestic violence is bringing education and awareness to the issue. Perpetuating BS is like taking 2 steps back. I have no idea how to account for the increase of violence against women on Super Bowl Sunday each year if it isnít related to the Super Bowl. One obvious speculation is that more drinking and drugging happens on that day in comparison to other sundays, which is in fact correlated to domestic violence, that being said you cannot say every time a man gets drunk hes gonna beat his wife or that drinking causes men to beat their wives. Maybe our western society which still promotes gender roles, that is a man expects his women to be in the kitchen cooking him food or cleaning his house, and when she does not do that he abuses her. Maybe insecure men have something to prove when they are around their friends and wants to show how in control he is of his household. Maybe women have more courage on this day as they are around friends and family and finally say enough is enough, victims are often isolated from their families. Conversely, maybe families witness the events and convince the victims to call 911, families are often in the dark of how bad it really is. Hell, maybe a lot of men are unlucky betters and lose money on the game. Maybe the accumulation of all these factors on one day does increase the likelihood of domestic violence occurring. I do not know; studies should be done to answer this question. But what I am sure of is, it takes a mentally ill man, or person for that matter, to abuse another human being. And we need to figure out how these people get to that point in their lives in order to diagnosis and prevent it. Mental illnesses take time to develop. Much more time than the 5 hours it takes to view the super bowl.
