Well, well look who is posting to himself just like you accuse others of doing. At least now we know why you claim it of others, to throw us off the track when you do it yourself. Nice try.

Anyone else notice that Stephen A. Smith lost 7 games days for talking, that is, using words not fists, about the Ray Rice punch out of his then girlfriend, now wife, while Roger Goodell/Badell thinks the actual punching out of a black woman by a muscular professional athlete is only worth losing 2 game days. Does he have such little respect for black women. Are they of such little value that an assault on them means almost nothing.
Or is Goodell/Badell President of Women Beaters Society?
The wrong message he just sent is that anyone "without a history", his words, can punch out a women bad enough to knock her out, possibly damage her brain, as long as he does it just one time.
Based on that precedent, can a guy with no record knock out Goodell/Badell or his wife and only lose 2 days of work?
Does Goodell/Badell have any daughters? Would he be so forgiving if they were attacked by a muscular pro athlete and concussed by them?
If they are attacked can the attacker use Godells/Badell's decision in a court of law as precedence?
Maybe the commissioner should wear a helmet at his job just like the players. His brain certainly seems to have been injured as shown by his decision on Ray Rice's 2 game suspension for knocking out a woman (who may have blackmailed him into marrying her so she doesn't puts his ass in jail where it belongs, and ends his career).
Is the Commissioner of the NFL telling the world that Donald Sterling should have just punched the lights out of his girl friend instead of using words to tell her to express his bias about associating with blacks? At least that way Sterling would only miss 2 games and not be banned for life.
Goodell/Badell will go down in history for this blunder, a blunder he can still fix but covers up instead.
Like several others have already stated, when a white man even says something against a black, or uses the N word which he shouldn't, the black world wants to crucify him but if a black man beats up on a woman, or uses the N word, we should just accept it and forgive him. This situation is about more than domestic abuse, it also goes to the roots of racism.

Japanese fart scrolls prove that human art peaked centuries ago
pproximately 200-400 years ago during Japan's Edo period, an unknown artist created what is easily the most profound demonstration of human aesthetics ever committed to parchment. I am referring to He-Gassen a.k.a. 屁合&# 25126; a.k.a. "the fart war." In this centuries-old scroll, women and men blow each other off the page with typhoon-like flatulence. Toss this in the face of any philistine who claims that art history is boring.
Gassy competitions weren't limited to the scenes of He-Gassen (which is hilariously named in retrospect). Fart wars were also used to express displeasure at the encroaching European influence in Edo Japan — artists would depict Westerners being blown home on thunderous toots.
Know that the below scenes contain more than a few disrobed body parts, but it's nothing worse than what you see in your average art museum (save for the roiling cyclones of rump mist, that is). You can read the full He-Gassen at Waseda University. And for more old-school blue humor, see these examples of ancient graffiti.
Internet should'nt be allowed in the prisons and mental institutions......

Prison inmates come to blows over ‘relentless farting’

Two prisoners in Fargo, North Dakota came to blows earlier this week after one inmate could no longer stand the flatulence of the other, and finally cracked under the pressure.

According to TwinCities.com , an incident took place on Monday at a medium-security facility, in which two prisoners, Ahmed Nur Ada and Timothy Lowseth, had a fight, and the latter came off the worse as a result.

It seems that Adan and Lowseth were talking next to one of their cells, when Adan hit Lowseth which knocked him to the ground and left him with a wound on his head. Prison officers stepped in to sort the situation out at that point and made sure that everyone went back to their cells and after questioning Adan, he revealed that Lowseth had been coming into his cell and farting, before leaving again, just to annoy him.

Adan further claimed that he confronted the other prisoner about it, and that’s when the fight broke out, with him striking first before Lowseth had a chance. Adan has been charged with assault, while Lowseth was taken to hospital, missing a tooth, for treatment. A cautionary tale for serial farters out there if ever there was one.
