NFL? I Am Done.

by Sandy Buttweiler

I grew up in Minnesota. Home of the Vikings of the National Football League. Sunday's were all about football in the Buttweiler house. My Dad played, my brother played and coached, his son played. Sunday's, when our Dad called us all, I could not wait to talk over the days games with him. So, it has been more then a football game to me. I know that NFL players have had many brushes with the law, domestic violence, drugs, drinking and driving. I know this happened at the end of 2013, Ray Rice was not charged, his then fiance is now his wife, and he will only miss two games of the season. Now, how can I continue to support an organization that would handle this situation, in this manner?
