Katie Nolan of FOX Sports talks about her love of football and reconciling her values with the football commissioner’s handling of the current situation.   How do you support a commissioner that has to SEE a video of a man punching a woman in the face to realize that it is unacceptable?  A boycott of the league is not practical and turning matters over to the NCAA whose ‘governing body makes Roger Goodell look like Mother Teresa’ is also not the answer.

Nolan regrets an early opportunity to question Goodell about why he would not consider a larger suspension of Rice to further the NFL’s appeal to the untapped market of female fans and let them know that the NFL actually cares about them.

Women commentators have a very limited role in broadcasting sports and it’s time for the conversation to change and allow women to have a seat at the table.

    Rush Limbaugh was wondering on the air today whether a public stoning of Ray Rice at half-time would be sufficient.

    I have loved the NFL since I was 10 years old. I have watched the games every Sunday since then. I will not boycott watching my football because some pussy sonofabitch beats his girlfriend up and the leader of the NFL is soft. Shame on the judicial system for not doing what is right. This bad apple does not spoil the whole bunch. Who’s going all the way this year guys ? I heard Denver and the Saints.

    I have a question: Is it possible for there to be an “untapped market of female fans” any more than it is possible for there to be an untapped market of male fans? Seems to me that the word “fan” implies that the person is already into the game and would watch no matter what. If the goal is to increase female viewership, that’s another matter.
