Has the NFL been turned into an experiment in social engineering?


Friends who are NFL watchers were talking about the controversies surrounding Ray Rice and Adrian Peterson. One of my friends -who rarely says anything political- said he suspects the media is obsessed with publicly crucifying pro players because the NFL has become an experiment in social engineering by gov't and law enforcement authorities that seek to make the public accustomed to Big Brother being in everyone's private affairs. Now I'm not big on conspiracy theories, but I do find this one interesting in light of the excessive press given the Rice and Peterson cases. What do you think?

    cjhunsinger, thanks for contributing the info. Very scary thought as to where all this institutionalized "guidance" may lead us!
