As the NFL prepares for Super Bowl LIII this coming Sunday, Commissioner Roger Goodell gave his State of the Union address Wednesday in Atlanta.
Among the topics that were broached, former Kansas City Chiefs running back Kareem Hunt’s situation took center stage.
Hunt was released by the Chiefs this past regular season after a video was released depicting him hitting and kicking a woman. It’s not yet known what type of punishment Hunt will face from the NFL. But it’s just the continuation of a major domestic violence issue around the league.
In the lead up to Goodell’s press conference, a women’s rights group by the name of UltraViolet released a statement calling for the commissioner to be fired.
