"Our system is broken."
Disturbing details about New York Giants kicker Josh Brown's history of domestic violence surfaced yesterday, leaving many to question why he was only suspended for one game and, furthermore, how he still had a job with the Giants.
Ravens' wide receiver Steve Smith made his opinion on the matter loud and clear. He originally tweeted that he would've put Brown's ass on the IR, before shifting his attention to the NFL and how they've handled domestic violence cases.
Smith wrote, "But this person had behavior patterns behind closed doors unknown to everyone while swift and harsh action handed down to many other players without half the details or amount of time. Our system is broken the NFL needs to stop acting like they care and start Showing people they mean what they Say!!!"
Check out his full statements about Brown and the NFL's handling of the situation below.
Hours after Brown's admission to physically, mentally and emotionally abusing his wife was made public, the Giants finally decided to leave him behind as they travelled to London for a game against the Rams- but it's not enough.
Shockingly, the Giants have yet to cut Brown and their owner John Mara as well as their coach Bob McAdoo are straight up embarrassing themselves with these comments.
.@Giants' Mara: "He’s certainly admitted to us that he’s abused his wife in the past. I think what’s not clear is the extent of that.” What?— Pat Leonard (@PLeonardNYDN) October 20, 2016
McAdoo: It was a tough conversation with Josh. ... We're not going to turn our back on Josh.— Gregg Rosenthal (@greggrosenthal) October 21, 2016
