I have been a San Francisco 49ers fan since I was a child. I have been a Jim Harbaugh fan since he coached at my alma mater, Stanford University. But I have a question for Coach Harbaugh. Is it about character or is it about profits?
Last week, defensive tackle Ray McDonald of the 49ers was arrested for a felony domestic violence case involving his girlfriend. She is ten weeks pregnant and had bruises on her neck and arms. He will become the first test case for the NFL’s new domestic abuse policy instituted in the wake of the horrific mishandling of the Ray Rice case. NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell, after facing a media firestorm, has now instituted a tougher policy for domestic violence abusers. McDonald was arrested Sunday morning at 3 AM, less than three days after the new NFL policy was announced. But I am more concerned with the actions of the 49ers than what the NFL will do months down the road.Tags: Untagged
