commented on When It Comes to Domestic Violence, the Seahawks Aren’t Any Better Than the Rest of the NFL
@15 hit the nail on the head. I'm more angry at the organization for insulting the intelligence of the entire city by simultaneously claiming they won't employ domestic abusers and then turning around and doing this fucking Kabuki dance about how he didn't hit her, despite her testimony to police, testimony of witnesses and the guy's own threats to "do it again" to the hotel manager. I don't give a fuck that he pleaded out or that the woman's story changed once the gravity of her accusations on the player's future became clear.
I'm willing to have debate about whether the guy deserves a second chance after making a terrible mistake. I'm not willing to financially support an organization that insults my intelligence like this, or a player that on two separate occasions after the incident decided to blame the victim.

I actually really like the music line-up, even if the headliners are kind of head-scratchers. A lot of really solid mid-tier touring acts and a lot of great local talent - that's basically what I want from Bumbershoot.
What I don't want is 80 fucking dollars for a day pass for a "community event." If they had trouble turning a profit charging $70 a day when the headliners were Elvis Costello, Foster the People and Wu-Tang, how many people do they think they're get to come see Faith No More? Granted I'm out of the loop on what the kids are listening to these days, but I don't really see any big draws there.
