The Ray Rice Incident Has Made Me Question If I Can Remain A Football Fan

I'm a football fan. First and foremost, I'm a Detroit Lions fan, but thanks to several years of playing fantasy football, I've become a fan of the game in general and even have favorite players on other teams (except the Bears and the Packers, because screw those guys).

Yeah, I know.) as I type this.

But, as a survivor of domestic abuse, watching everything that has come out in the wake of the Ray Rice incident, seeing the allegations against the league as a whole and the Ravens specifically, I've found myself questioning whether I can continue to be a fan of this game that I have grown to love so much.
