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 isn’t 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.
Interesting point about isolation and courage to report with the help of family being around. And also I think you are spot on about mental illness taking time. Surely you are correct that the Super Bowl doesn't cause mental illness but for whatever reason it does seem to be an excuse to unleash it. This is important conversation to have ... the super bowl is used as an outlet to sale just about anything ~ I have to support Juanita for using it as an opportunity to bring light to something that anybody with a mother or sister ought to care about. As MLK Jr. once said "our lives begin to end the moment we stop talking about things that matter."

As you acknowledged, there is no causal connection between increased CALLS and the Super Bowl. It is every bit as likely that women are using the day as an excuse to settle any number of disputes by CALLING the police. On it's face, it is absurd to claim a sporting event causes domestic violence.

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?
Being drunk. And by that rationale, you should blame St. Patrick, Jesus and our founding fathers for domestic abuse because of what's consumed on their holidays.

Football is nothing to celebrate. There are more cases of domestic abuse on Super Bowl Sunday than any other day of the year. Aggressive men and beer are not a good combination, and if a girlfriend or wife happens to get in front of the TV, or laughs or cheers at the wrong time they are fair game. The police throughout the country work overtime during the Super Bowl because of violence unleashed on this day. I happy a young man reached a goal - but it is nothing for the community to having a parade about. Let's get our priorities straight and celebrate something that matters - something other than an aggression provoking and cultivating game. And let's not put violence or the people would flourish in a violent atmosphere up on a pedestal. Chico doesn’t need this notoriety anymore than it needs to be seen as a party town.
Shut your mouth, get in that kitchen, make me a sandwich and get me a cold beer, sally pity pants.

Excellent analogies. In my experience, if you put a bunch of people together drinking and partying the probability of the police being called increases for any number of reasons. But some people apparently need to reach for some irrational cause in order to further some weird agenda.
