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). Sundays at our house are raucous days of cheering on our favorite team with a small group of friends while eating far too much food. I'm wearing a Lions jersey (Joey Harrington. 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.
