I agree that the NFL is inconsistent and hypocritical...

I do believe that you're reviewing the situation wrongly if one of your first statements on it basically was that, this was "tame". That's the wrong message to send and it isn't up to us to grade how tame this is or not, to me the point is that Hunt had an opportunity to react differently but he incited the physical altercation, and wouldn't remove himself. Add to that, he had a physical altercation with a man at a bar just four months later. Kareem Hunt has anger and behavioral issues; a pattern has been shown and that's where the focus on him should be directed. Furthermore, he has admitted to lying to his team about the incident, which shows a manipulation and a person not even acknowledging he did something wrong here. Not whether or not he showed restraint, he clearly didn't show enough...

Kicking Hill off the team would be the wrong move here as well, because they would be applying punishment retroactively. That would speak to the inconsistencies on the part of The League that you and I agree on. There was an opportunity to handle Hill the right way. They didn't do it. Now it would again look like the Chiefs/NFL are just trying to save face for being caught doing the wrong thing again...

For the record, sure, what Hill's situation was described as appears worse, but again, I'm a huge believer that domestic situations should not be compared, and weighed on a singular basis. There is no "one size fits all" punishment here, and banning everybody charged or convicted of DV would further be mishandling the issue...

It might be a little late for that. Threads of this type subject get nasty in a hurry but I stayed out of the way to see how far it had gone. I'll take a look at this thing tomorrow morning and make a decision on it. An awful lot of unnecessary name calling here.
