Welcome to episode 085 of the Thunder Treats Podcast! The second full week of NFL games is in our back pocket but all anyone can seem to talk about is Ray Rice, Adrian Peterson, Greg Hardy and Ray McDonald. All of those players were somehow directly abused someone close to them. Rice, though, is trying to appeal his indefinite suspension after assaulting his wife while Adrian Peterson — who has been accused of abusing his four year old son — has been activated again. AP’s might be the most ridiculous, especially since he has been accused of abusing another one of his sons.

On September 11 in Philadelphia, two gay men were the victims of a violent gang assault. One of the men had to have his jaw wired shut while the other suffered cuts and broken bones. Their identities haven’t been released publicly.

According to police, the two were confronted by a large group of men and women in their early 20′s. One member of the group asked the men were “boyfriends”. Before they began assaulting the two men, the group also made — according to police — “disparaging remarks” about gay people. In addition to the hate crime, someone from the group also stole one of the victims bags.

Welcome to the 84th episode of the Thunder Treats Podcast! We tried our hardest to do it without swearing! It almost worked!

We finally got ourselves a full weekend of football and there is plenty to cover. However, the biggest news in the football world hit on Monday morning when TMZ released the video of Ray Rice assaulting his wife in the elevator.

We bounced around from topic to topic by pulling out of a hat. It keeps it fresh and we like it. So if you don’t like it, deal with it.

In other news, the Atlanta Hawks are a bunch of racists, according to Bruce Levenson and Danny Ferry and NFL bust Ryan Leaf got a five year prison sentence for violating his probation after breaking into a house in Montana. Great stuff, right?

Welcome to the 83rd edition of the Thunder Treats Podcast! And welcome to football season! Last week we enjoyed the first week of college football as THE Ohio State escaped Navy’s triple option offense just like Alabama finally pulled away from West Virginia. Florida State kept it close with Oklahoma State and LSU came back from 17 points down to beat Wisconsin.

Crazy, right? And I didn’t even mention the thumping that Kevin Sumlin’s Texas A&M Aggies put on Spurrier’s Game Cocks!

This week should be doubly crazy since the NFL finally returns to our collective homes. Each of us gave our predictions for the Super Bowl too. I wasn’t allowed to take the Browns.
