James Brown wins raves for pre-game statement on domestic violence


Before Thursday night’s Steelers-Ravens game, announcer James Brown delivered a statement on domestic violence and manhood that has been winning raves from viewers.

The anti-domestic violence pregame speech from @JBsportscaster was eloquent and awesome: http://t.co/09ouwTZlWm

@hollyrpeete @USATODAYsports @JBsportscaster That should not be a simple plea/wish- it SHOULD be common sense for all people!!

@EdgeofSports I applaud James Brown. Keep your paws of these females!#RealMen

Careful with that “real men” talk — it’s pretty dated and sexist.

Nice to see high profile male ask other males to change attitude towards women. Way to go @JBsportscaster http://t.co/UEd9KGJPBX

@Deadspin JB is GREAT. His eloquence & honesty is very missed on "Inside The NFL" these days.

@Deadspin totally agree with the speech.

— Alex (@AlexAlexdingee) September 12, 2014

@Deadspin that was really fucking good.
