A mom who’s very familiar with the NFL speaks out against domestic violence in general and says the league should be a leader on the issue.
Tuohy said domestic violence is an epidemic in the U.S. and she doesn’t think people should be ‘cutting the herd with a couple of players in the NFL.’
Though these recent controversies do offer the administrators within the league a chance to 'step up.'
"Let's let everyone emulate what we're doing," she said.
NFL commissioner Roger Goodell has taken a step in the right direction by bringing four new women on to consult on domestic abuse policy alongside him.
While Tuohy appreciates the action, she said "it's never enough," and wants to see more mothers, social workers and grassroots people on the committee.
Tuohy knew Ray Rice, Adrian Peterson and Greg Hardy and believes their transgressions were out of character.
She said aggressive behavior on the field should never be an excuse for beating women or children.
This activist said the best way to stop violence is to teach respect from an early age.
"We've got to get with these kids when they're young and teach them about doing the right thing," she said.
"Respecting people, being givers, making a difference, standing up for your fellow man."
