Inside the locker room: two ex-NFL players on media coverage of sports scandals

With NFL stars Ray Rice and Adrian Peterson in the spotlight for off-the-field violence, former players George Martin and Chris Kluwe talk about how player misconduct is handled in NFL locker rooms.

Some highlights:

  · Kluwe: the media can become perceived as the enemy "if you let it." But "anytime someone says this is a distraction - well, you're a professional athlete. It's your job not to be distracted. That's why you're out on the field."

  · Martin: with the assault in the elevator, Ray Rice's now-wife Janay was "literally victimized." And now, with the widespread broadcast of video from the elevator, "she's having to relive that over and over again quite figuratively."

  · Martin: "We're all talking about the two videos that exist, but what would happen if neither video existed? Would there be a reaction at all?"

  · Does the media tend to believe the worst about athletes? Martin: "I think there is a tendency to over-sensationalize and overdramatize the negative."

  · Kluwe: "The fact [is] that the vast majority of NFL players are guys who take care of their business, they do good charitable works, and then they go home to their families and they never have an issue with the law or with the league."

    Poor women. men should not be so violet towards women. forget a about hope solo, holdsclaw(former wnba player who stalked girlfriend, all of those female teachers who rape their male students, the million of females in the usa who abort(aka murder) their unborn children mostly because they don't want to be mommys, or studies that show that women committ 40% of all domestic violence. poor women..everything that happens in their lives are to be blamed on men.
