• The NFL's domestic violence problem

    Today the NFL finally issued a two-game suspension for Baltimore running back Ray Rice. What an ugly situation. This offseason Rice was reportedly caught on an elevator surveillance camera punching his then-girlfriend in the face. A few minutes later, in a video that went viral, Rice was seen pulling her apparently unconscious body out of the elevator. And now ... two games? Commissioner Roger Goodell has issued longer suspensions for pot smoking, taking Adderall, DUI, illegal tattoos, dogfighting and eating a protein bar thought to be on the NFL's approved list. Two games. It's a joke, and a bad one. Worse, it leaves the door open for people to think that Janay Rice bears a lot of the responsibility for eliciting the punch that seemingly knocked her out. Two games. This comes in the same offseason when elite pass-rusher Robert Mathis got four games for, according to him, using an unapproved fertility drug as he and his wife tried...

  • Chuck Knoblauch accused of assault

    Former Minnesota Twins star Chuck Knoblauch was arrested Wednesday night on charges that he allegedly assaulted his ex-wife.  The Twins issued a statement Thursday saying that Knoblauch's scheduled induction into the team's Hall of Fame had been canceled. The team was slated to honor Knoblauch on Aug. 23 at Target Field.  The Twins did not directly address the details of the arrest in their statement but did say their decision was made "in light of recent news reports" and after "direct communication" with Knoblauch. "There are no plans to reschedule," Twins President Dave St. Peter said. "I suppose over time this could be revisited, but at this time from the Twins' organization perspective, we currently have no intent to reschedule." Knoblauch was released after posting $10,000 bond. He is due in court on July 30. Knoblauch, 46, divorced Cheri Knoblauch in 2012. He was convicted of hitting a previous wife in 2010 and...
