The NFL has a problem with domestic abuse

As a Baltimorean and Ravens fan, I am disheartened by the fact that so much attention is being given to the dismissal of offensive coordinator Cam Cameron and so little attention to Terrell Suggs' alleged domestic abuse troubles ("Suggs, fiancee reach court agreement," Dec. 12).

John Harbaugh has held various press conferences to explain the organization's position regarding the dismissal of Mr. Cameron and the future expectations for the team. However, he has yet to publicly condemn domestic abuse and state that the Ravens will not tolerate such behavior by their players.

Maybe Sun sports writers Aaron Wilson and Matt Vensel can spend some time studying the number of players throughout the NFL who have faced domestic or sexual assault charges and provide information on the counseling and intervention services available.
