    If the Dolphin players committed domestic violence as well as they played football the team would be in the Superbowl every year.

    “…grabbing his wife’s wrist and twisting them…?”

    I need a little subject – verb agreement on this. You can either go singular, or plural, but you can’t do both.

    Grabbing wrists is now considered “battering” ? It doesn’t seem to fit the category.

    When did that get redefined…?

    I need to know these things.
