"In May, the couple spoke to reporters about the case in a press conference publicized by the team. 'I do deeply regret the role that I played in the incident that night,' Janay Rice said."

Her "role"?

Re: Domestic Violence Survey
There must be zero tolerance for domestic violence in pro sports!

Re: Domestic Violence Survey
I missed the vote. Domestic violence is thriving. I can't believe what people do to each other, or one person does to another,...usually their SO.

Re: Domestic Violence Survey
The question is whether there is more of it or whether people are more willing to report it and seek help? I sadly see a lot of it in my divorce practice.

Re: Domestic Violence Survey
^^ Seems like a little of both, LE.

I didn't watch the Super Bowl, and didn't realize that it's a huge day for domestic violence. That ad is chilling.

Hi 2nd --

"didn't realize that it's a huge day for domestic violence."

It isn't.

http://www.snopes.com/crime/statistics/superbowl.asp

That was a good ad.
