Former Bears GM says NFL teams swept many domestic violence incidents under the rug

Today USA Today opened another bombshell on the NFL concerning Domestic Violence.

Former NFL executive Jerry Angelo of the Chicago Bears said teams did not discipline players in “hundreds and hundreds” of domestic violence incidents during his 30 years in the league, and said he now regrets his role in the failure to take action.
[Jerry Angelo] said his typical approach after learning of a player’s involvement in a domestic violence case was to inquire, “OK, is everybody OK? Yeah. How are they doing? Good. And then we’d just move on. We’d move on.”
“We knew it was wrong,” Angelo said. “…For whatever reason, it just kind of got glossed over. I’m no psychiatrist, so I can’t really get into what that part of it is. I’m just telling you how I was. I’ve got to look at myself first. And I was part of that, but I didn’t stand alone.”

This is wild, but times did change.
