New documents show that New York Giants kicker Josh Brown repeatedly abused his ex-wife


New York Giants kicker Josh Brown admitted to abusing his ex-wife many, many times in the documents presented during a May 2015 domestic violence case, USA Today reports.

But the NFL doesn't seem to care all that much. The league recently suspended Brown for a mere one game. 

Molly Brown said there were more than 20 acts of violence during her marriage to her ex-husband. 

I have physically, verbally and emotionally abused my wife
Josh Brown

USA Today sports dug up the court documents filed last year after the NFL conducted its own investigation into Brown's actions and handed down an extremely light verdict. 

The league tried to push the blame for the verdict onto authorities and Brown's ex-wife, saying they did not cooperate in its investigation.

Many have pointed to what they perceive as hypocrisy in the football community's reaction. 

A lot of hypocrisy. 

So, so much.
