49ers WR takes hard stance against NFL’s treatment of domestic violence cases

New York Giants kicker Josh Brown is the just the latest NFL player to be an alleged domestic abuser.

He admitted he abused his wife in a diary, it appears the league and his team knew for some time and punishment has been little and late.

Brown was recently placed on the league commissioner’s exempt list, which is the equivalent of a paid suspension.

That isn’t sitting well with San Francisco 49ers receiver Torrey Smith, who took to Twitter with his thoughts on the matter on Friday.

Brown’s teammate, Odell Beckham Jr., was fined more than $24,000 on Friday for removing his helmet during a touchdown celebration last week. The timing was a reminder of the NFL’s poor priorities when it comes to discipline.

A silly movement cropped up in the wake of Colin Kaepernick’s protest. They dubbed it #boycottNFL. My suggestion: If you’re looking for a valid reason to boycott the league, here’s your chance.

Kudos to Smith for speaking out, potentially at his own peril. Some things are bigger than football and “protecting the shield,” to use one of Roger Goodell’s favorite phrases.
