The one lucky guy on Fox News’ “Outnumbered” said Wednesday that not only should NFL players refrain from abusing their partners, but their wives and girlfriends should avoid hitting their “testosterone-filled” husbands.
The “Outnumbered” panel was debating whether NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell should resign over the way he handled ex-Baltimore Ravens running back Ray Rice’s assault of his then-fiancee.
“It’s violence against women, it shouldn’t happen,” David Webb said. “Violence, frankly, between men and women shouldn’t happen in either direction. But Goodell’s not going anywhere.”
“They should deal with the violence issue when you have so many young, powerful, strong individuals who are literally testosterone-filled and out of control,” he added. “Not everyone in the NFL, there’s a lot of good guys in the NFL. Most of them don’t go out and beat their wives — or, frankly, to the wives out there or girlfriends, don’t hit your husbands.”
“You got to be careful with that line of thinking. It’s dangerous,” Kennedy cut in. “And it can be really insulting, especially to domestic abuse victims.”
Webb repeated that no man should hit a woman or vice versa, prompting Harris Faulkner to throw some numbers at him.
“Eighty-five percent of victims according to the CDC of domestic violence are women, so it’s not really the same thing to compare men and women as victims of domestic violence,” she said.
“Well I’m not saying it’s a number, I’m saying it shouldn’t happen in either direction,” Webb argued.
