    You need a company to tell you dv is wrong? RT @eddieb2: Finally a BIG time company taking a public stance AGAINST and you rip them? Huh?

    Anytime it's starts to tinkering with their bottom line, then they act. Now they're concerned.

    I'm not a big fan of him speaking publicly, but I completely agree with him here.

    A-B should stay in their place.

    Agree with him 100%. Tweeting anything these days can cause backlash, but he isnt saying anything untrue.

    He's right. I'm sure a lot of these domestic violence cases happen after having consumed Bud Light liquid courage. I don't think I've ever seen a Bud Light, don't beat your wife public service announcement.

    Just like the hypocrisy in Chris crackhead carter ripping adrian peterson on the air a few days ago. Plus we have captain america in ray lewis acting like he never killed a man.

    Whoa, I'm sorry. "Alcohol and domestic violence go hand in hand"....NO, hell no. Lot's of people enjoy some beverages and manage to not cause problems with police, or women, or children or other human beings.

    Some people cannot function in a civilized society, no matter how much you try to help them.

    Okay, that's true. We have pushed dv under the rug. Not just the NFL, but society. But what's Arian's point? Since we have ignored it in the past, we should keep ignoring it? This was a terrible incident, but at least we are using this is a good way. This is opening public awareness on the issue.

    Anheuser-Busch should put their money where their mouth is and donate a percentage of every A-B alcohol sold in sporting events to organizations like the National Coalition Against Domestic Violence.

    Btw, Arian is just workin' hard, tryin' to be the best teammate he can be.

    Probably true on whole. . However, 80% of domestic violence police calls involve alcohol.
