When the Victim Becomes the Accused: The Kamrin Moore Story

Kamrin Moore, falsely accused, finally cleared

We are drawn to big headlines that flash across the bottom of our TV screens and the dramatic music accompanying developing stories, whether we are watching CNN or the NFL Network. Not to mention the grave facial expression, the solemn tone and delivery of the information by the correspondent or “insider” as they constantly glance at their cell phones as if waiting for more details.  Just as quickly as news breaks, someone jumps on Twitter in hopes of being first to report, as other reporters scramble to get to press before their competitors.  As the frenzy in frantic in newsrooms and on social media ensues with various reporters competing to be the first to report any additional detail associated with the news item, often fact-checking, and investigation is a luxury many do not have time for in today’s click hungry-media environment.

On Tuesday, Kamrin Moore was cleared of the domestic violence charges against him, but on July 15, he became the latest NFL player accused of domestic violence.

Give Due Process Its Due: The Antonio Brown Dilemma

Britney Taylor v Antonio Brown NFL

Much debate has swirled around whether Antonio Brown should be placed on the commissioner’s exempt list or face suspension since news broke of a lawsuit alleging that he raped a former trainer. If the allegations are true, then Antonio Brown should be punished, but at this stage, all the public and presumably the Patriots and NFL have is a “he said/she said” scenario, with the only evidence an unsworn lawsuit filed in federal court and a statement by Brown’s attorney refuting the allegations.

To Understand the NFL’s Inconsistent Handling of Domestic Violence, You Have to Enter the Matrix

NFL Matrix-Roger Goodell

“This is your last chance. After this, there is no turning back. You take the blue pill – the story ends, you wake up in your bed and believe whatever you want to believe. You take the red pill – you stay in Wonderland and I show you how deep the rabbit-hole goes.”

What’s next for Ezekiel Elliott and NFL Domestic Violence Policy?

Ezekiel Elliott

The NFL has botched a number of domestic violence investigations over the past few years unleashing a public relations nightmare for the league. A seemingly contrite Roger Goodell pledged to do better after public outrage from the Ray Rice fiasco nearly cost the NFL a lucrative Anheiser Busch relationship. Part of his new “get tough plan” included a baseline six-game suspension for first-time domestic violence offenders. Then last year he reduced that suspension for unknown mitigating circumstances to a mere one-game suspension for Giants’ kicker Josh Brown; that is until Brown’s own journal admitting abuse surfaced in the media. Another firestorm of public rage erupted, again bringing into question the NFL’s seriousness in regard to domestic violence. The NFL needed to get the next one right. Enter Ezekiel Elliott.
