I'm not saying he shouldn't have been arrested or disciplined, but passing judgment on these guys is a little unfair too.

Luckily he got caught the one and only time he used violence on a woman. Or is it twice....

Sometimes what you do tells us who you are.

I have mixed feelings about it honestly. I like Rainey as a player. But as a person he, like all the rest of us, has flaws. Yes..perhaps he should be cut. But if he isn't I'll be alright with that. I DO think he can turn into something special within the offense or special teams.

I've been wondering if Mendy really is as good as gone anyway. Who knows how he responded (behind closed doors) with the staff after his one-game suspension. I feel like I noticed a little more intensity on the field after it. I realize he didn't light the field on fire, but he seemed a little different on the field.

We don't know that she didn't deserve it, we weren't there. I've never hit a woman, and I don't believe a man should hit a woman, but we don't know what happened exactly. Police reports are vague and witness accounts are unreliable.

That being said, I've never said that she did deserve it.

We know she didn't deserve it. She may have deserved being dumped. She may have deserved his anger. She definitely deserved to be free from violence.

Rainey has the defense that he didn't hit her. Maybe everyone is lying and he didn't do it. But you calling her a bitch doesn't make Rainey look better. It just makes you look worse.

Everybody deserves to be free from violence, but that's not realistic. Like I said, we weren't there and don't know what happened. I won't take police reports and eye-witness accounts as reality.
