Steve Smith slams NFL’s ‘broken system’ when it comes to domestic violence

Baltimore Ravens WR Steve Smith laid it down amid the league’s latest firestorm in dealing with Giants kicker Josh Brown’s domestic violence allegations, saying the NFL is basically failing in regards to the issue.

“We have valued the amount of air in a ball but yet devalued when a person or persons may have been harmed and fail to put forth necessary actions of energy and time in which far less important things have taken precedent!” Steve Smith said Thursday night.

“There have been players with far less [offenses,] some have been banned, cut on the spot. But this person had behavior patterns behind closed doors unknown to everyone while swift and harsh action handed down to many players without half the details or amount of time.

“Our system is broken the NFL needs to stop acting like they care and start showing people they mean what they say. I will continue to speak for the voiceless and for my mother who is a survivor of domestic violence.”
