Arizona Cardinals Running Back Jonathan Dwyer Arrested For Head Butting His Wife

Arizona Cardinals running back Jonathan Dwyer headbutted his wife, breaking her nose, after she turned him down for sex. He proceeded to lock himself in a bathroom and threaten to kill himself in front of his wife and son if she told the police about the assault.

So that’s four NFL players in some kind of legal trouble over domestic violence in 11 days. Meanwhile, the NFL has been making statements about women as “matriarchs,” citing our community-building skills, ability to produce and raise children, purchasing power, and overall domesticity as the reasons that the NFL likes us. I’m so flattered. I know I was a beacon of domesticity when I yelled so hard at the Patriots for losing to the Giants in Super Bowl XLVI that I had a blood pressure spike and almost fainted.

Chicago Bear Brandon Marshall Is Being Sued For Domestic Abuse

First Ray Rice, then Adrian Peterson, now Brandon Marshall: A third NFL player in just 10 days has been brought into the spotlight for allegedly abusing someone close to him.

It’s not that September 2014 is just the equivalent of a full moon for NFL players, when all of a sudden they become violent toward their girlfriends, fiancées, wives, and children. It happens year round. Ten NFL players in the last two years have been arrested on domestic violence charges. Keep reading »

The End Zone: Is The 49ers New Stadium Cursed?

The End Zone: Is The 49ers New Stadium Cursed?

Don’t you just hate it when you spend over eight years and nearly $1.2 billion dollars to conceive and build the perfect new stadium, just to find out that oops, sorry, it is cursed as hell? Samesies, me too – but looks like that’s what the San Francisco 49ers are up against right now.

In just three appearances at their brand new state-of-the-art Levi’s Stadium in Santa Clara, two preseason and one abysmal regular season loss this past Sunday, the Niners have had an interesting, accident- and loss-riddled showing — especially after their strong 12-4 season in 2013, back when they played home games out of San Francisco’s Candlestick Park. It all started August 17th, in what should have been a routine pre-season game against Peyton Manning and his Denver Broncos. The Broncos, still reeling from their abysmal 43-8 loss at last season’s Super Bowl, should have posed no real threat to the 49ers, who made it all the way to the NFC Division Champions last season and boast arguably one of the strongest defensive lines in the league. Instead, after an error-laden start and an inability to hold the Broncos back, the 49ers were left scoreless, being routed 34-0. Star 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick threw only 5 for 9 for 39 yards, and kicker Phil Dawson, normally on point, missed two easy field goals, kicking both wide right. The offensive line also threw two interceptions and a fumble, and handed the Broncos defensive line the gift wrapped W with a bow on top — not a great showing for the 49ers first game in their new stadium, with tens of thousands of fans filling out the new stadium to full capacity.

The End Zone: The Top 10 Touchdown Celebrations

The End Zone: The Top 10 Touchdown Celebrations

Football season is finally here, and after an exhilarating Week 1, there have already been 42 touchdowns scored across the league. And though the NFL may have banned excessive celebration on touchdowns back in 2006, any NFL fan knows that the best part of football is of course: the touchdown dance (winning Super Bowls, mercilessly laying waste to your opponents, and tailgates notwithstanding). While players have attempted to take it down a notch to avoid fines, let’s be real – without a good touchdown dance, do the points even really count? (The answer is yes, they do.) Here are the 10 best touchdown celebrations of all time, to get you in the scoring spirit. Keep reading »
