We're shocked, shocked that some NFL players turn out to be violent at home, too! People watch the NFL (and the NHL, etc.) because they want to see violence. The players are trained (and medicated) to be violent, though many, perhaps all, the players liked a certain level of violence in the first place.
Meanwhile, the NFL continues to be treated as a ''nonprofit'' because legislators, some of them wanting anxiously to display their masculinity by showing their real or feigned love of professional football, ignore the NFL gold mine.
Hypocrisy makes the world go round. And at some level, we're all killers.
