NFL’s Woman Beater Wednesday: Junior Galette, Ray McDonald & Ahmad Brooks Get Roughed Up

Wednesday wasn’t exactly the best day for the women-beaters of the National Football League.

Former San Francisco 49ers defensive lineman Ray McDonald was indicted on a count of rape of an intoxicated female, current 49ers linebacker Ahmad Brooks was hit with a sexual battery charge, and then former New Orleans Saints and current Washington Redskins sack artist Junior Galette blew out his Achilles.

Let’s start with the first guy. McDonald, who was picked up by the Chicago Bears earlier this year and then released after more domestic violence and a child endangerment charge in May. McDonald wasn’t indicted on anything from the events in May, but he still faces up to eight years in prison.

Talk about losing your best playing years. Even though McDonald will more than likely get off with a slap on the wrist and maybe a fine or community service, his NFL days are even more likely over.

The league always talks about wanted to come down harder on domestic violence, so they may as well make McDonald’s early retirement official. And permanent.

Brooks on the other hand will probably be just fine. He’s still on the Niners, and although they are aware of the situation, barring any punishment the league may hand out, Brooks should be good to go come Week 1. If not, it’ll be just another setback on a long list of issues that have plagued the 49ers’ defense this offseason.

Galette got off easier than the other two in terms of legal issues, but he got his just desserts after everything he did and all the drama he caused after being cut from the Saints.

Obviously I’m not saying I’m glad he’s hurt. I wouldn’t wish that on my worst enemy. I’m just saying the universe has a strange way of making everything work out in the end.

To add injury to the injury that was added to the original insult, Galette also loses $332,000 this season because the injury occurred before Week 1.

Sucks to suck, guys.
