Its just this big incident this year. Last year we had Jonathon martin and Incognito, 2012 - bounty gate, 2011-lockout, etc. Its an unfortunate pairing of events that the simple minded media like to make big deals out of and the NFL goes on a witch hunt to try to clean up their image. Nothing new, this happens in most popular sports.

It's more of a snow ball effect. The Ray Rice incident happened months ago, April if I remember correctly. NO ONE was talking about it in the months that followed. He just got a slap on the wrist with a two game suspension, and people where happy. It's not until recently, that the video surfaced where we saw him punching his fiance, that people demand that he get a more hard penalty and accused the NFL of mishandling the situation. Since the topic was being covered by more media stations, other incidents like the Dwyer and Hardy had risen up. Because the NFL "mishandled" the Ray Rice situation, they can't let any other incidents damage their image. Honestly I just feel the league is making up the rules as they go along. Just take a look at the Peterson case. That's another one that I feel the NFL is just throwing darts and seeing where it lands.

Also, this.

I am not saying that Korra definitely wins, but I think people are underestimating Korra's bending ability, possibly due to nostalgia. Korra has proven on multiple occasions to be a very competent bender.

Nostalgia is the only reason people overestimate Azula. People actually thought Azula could solo the Red Lotus

Nostalgia? Seriously? That has nothing to do with why Azula could possibly beat Korra. Azula is potential one of the greatest benders on that show. She's a master tactician, and is capable of using a someone's emotions against them, often taunting her opponent, and distracting them. Not to mention she can detect weaknesses and flaws in someones moves, and can easily go hand-to-hand with Korra, Zuko as well. Both of their acrobatic skills are great, but I just don't see Azula loosing. Korra has show a lot of anger issues throughout the show, and her emotions are often out of control, being blinded by her own ambitions, thoughts, or morals, Azula can uses all this against her, she could even distract her long enough of for Zuko to KO her.

Something shes only done against people she either know well (Zuko aka her brother) and gains info from being at the right place at the right time (suki), she's never done something like that mid battle.

Are you watching Korra? Because most of her anger is in the beginning of season 1 and beginning of season 2, not so much right now. The biggest problem with Azula is that majority of people wank her abilities by taking them out of context or underestimating Korra.

Lol. Really!? That is one of the most ridiculous things I have every heard. Granted, Azula would definitely take them down Individually, without too much problem. I would even say that she could beat 2 of them single handily, but the FOUR of them, Together. There is no absolutely no way. Lol.

It actually was everyone minus Pli. Here's the thread if you're interested.
