Boycott the NFL [Letter]

September 15, 2014

Women have a duty to combat the domestic violence in the NFL by refusing to buy the products of any football advertiser ("Domestic violence deserves attention year round," Sept. 12). Cut off their money.

Men have the same duty. We oppose violence, but in addition, we have here a conspiracy to thwart justice — by the Baltimore Ravens, by the New Jersey prosecutor and judge and by the NFL along with total silence on the part of every Maryland leader from Gov. Martin O'Malley to Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake.

NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell must go. For him to make $40 million a year while engaged in a coverup of a major crime is an outrage. Ray Rice's offense is trivial compared with those of Mr. Goodell, the judge and the prosecutor.

This is, like Ferguson, Mo., a case of corruption. Where is the Justice Department?
