Ray Rice did a terrible thing. Nobody can dispute that.  But I question much of the attention that his crime has received. I see something of a cycle in sports reporting, and in the media as a whole.  Someone does something indisputably bad.  Analysts will then spend the next week or two telling us that…

Exhausted. Satisfied.  Utterly terrified at the prospect of attending class the next day. There were a hundred ways to describe how I felt after having watched four hours of NFL Red Zone with my friends. But I felt no regret, because the NFL was back, with all its glory and controversy.
