SI.com Kickoff

I’ve spent the better part of 15 years writing about athletes and crime, particularly violence against women. It’s a problem that just doesn’t go away. Starting today I’ll have a regular column at SI.com called SPORTS AND SOCIETY. In it I’ll be taking a closer look at the off-the-field behavior of pro and college athletes.
