National Football League at center of domestic violence scandal ... again

"The NFL has the ability to place a player on the exempt list and the player has the right to appeal that decision, if he chooses", the NFL Players Association said in a statement.

According to reports, Molly Brown, Josh's wife, has told investigators that there have been over 20 incidents of abuse over the past few years.

The league reacted Thursday by re-opening its investigation into a 2015 domestic abuse complaint made by Brown's former wife, though prosecutors said they were closing the criminal case without filing charges because they could not secure key testimony from the woman and other key witnesses. He was not charged. "But, this white dude, Josh Brown, is a kicker on the New York Giants who literally has taken a journal highlighting his transgressions, his egregious acts and it is not until a couple days ago when the King County Office in Washington releases this information that suddenly here we are again?"

Wide receiver Victor Cruz said, "His personal life is his personal life but when he's in this locker room he's our teammate, and that's all we can go by".

Giants co-owner John Mara has spoken with Brown, but will not determine Brown's future with the team until the Giants return from London. This is not the NFL's first time mishandling a domestic violence case especially after last year's fiasco with Greg Hardy and the case with Ray Rice.

The New York Giants will be without Josh Brown when they play the Rams in London this weekend.

"[Brown] admitted to us he'd abused his wife in the past", Mara said on Thursday during a radio interview with NY station WFAN.

Creepy clown sightings in Hampshire
Another Facebook group, also titled Perth Clown Purge, posted that their page was being shut down due to a police investigation. Two women dressed as clowns were arrested in MI last week after allegedly chasing and threatening two 14-year-old girls.

"I think the policy of any police department across the country is you don't jeopardize an ongoing investigation by releasing information to anybody". "As a result, further investigation by the league into those separate incidents is needed".

League officials are adamant that at the time of their initial ruling they had what they deemed to be "credible evidence" of a domestic incident, only that an incident occurred between Brown and his now ex-wife, Molly Brown, when he grabbed a phone out of her hands.

The NFL has faced a lot of criticism based on how they have handled Brown and his lack of punishment.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport and Albert Breer of The MMQB reported free-agent kicker Robbie Gould was joining the Giants in London. We expect to conduct this review expeditiously and make any appropriate adjustments to your roster status in a timely manner.

Facing a crisis in America's most popular sports league, a chastened NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell assured the American public that the new policy would be comprehensive and tough.

He sure is, and perhaps the best way to be there for him going forward is to make sure he is getting the help he needs to not be an abusive prick anymore.

Everything changed when the National Football League finally got their hands on documents from Brown's case and realized they were far more serious then originally thought.
