    If the above is true I expect to see a debate between the discipline with hugs and kisses crowd and corporal punishment crowd.

    It's like the Fappening, but with crime. They're even letting the drug violators back in soon. Lulz.

    I guess my mother was a career criminal. She didn't use a switch. She would make me take off the belt I was wearing and hand it to her.

    When I moved to Texas and heard this talk of a "switch", I laughed.

    Such a well respected player. He's going to take a thrashing in the press.

    Like wise. Moms used hit me with the wooden spoon. If I was being irritating it was a flip flop. When I was especially bad it was having me go out and finding a switch.

    You must have never been whipped with a switch. No laughing matter.

    Fun times to be the NFL league office right now.

    Heck if I were Goodell I would want to resign and retire with my 40 million. Let other people deal with this.
