Domestic violence is violent or aggressive behavior, typically involving the violent abuse of a spouse or a partner. But in this situation athletes are abusing people/partners. Usually NFL players abuse there wives but domestic violence can happen in any sport. It can also be a girl athlete abusing her husband but it is usually the opposite. A lot of athletes get charged, indicted, or arrested for abusing there partner. I think that when athletes abuse people/partners the law should be more strict then they are because they are professional sport stars. What I mean by being more strict is that they shouldn't be just getting charged they should also get a worse punishments.
These are some examples of NFL athletes that abuse people or there partners-
