This is an article from the March 9, 2015 issue

The Hall of Fame quarterback, who ranks seventh on the NFL's alltime passing list (49,325 yards), gives his thoughts on Adrian Peterson and Ray Rice, and on how the Seahawks are coping with defeat

MAGGIE GRAY: You had some [domestic violence] issues 20 years ago in which you were acquitted of all charges. Do you have any advice for Adrian Peterson and Ray Rice?

WARREN MOON: I think you just have to learn from your mistakes and take the proper steps moving forward so that something like that doesn't happen again ... I think if they do that and get the right type of counseling, and also reach out to others and spread the message that this is something that you don't do, I think they'll have a positive effect from it.

MG: If what happened with you happened today, the [NFL's] new code of conduct would have said that you would be suspended. Do you think this new code of conduct is fair?

WM: No question about it. I think this is a very serious topic, not just in sports but in our society. I'm sure a big percentage of calls that police get to go out to homes are for domestic violence, so it's not only a sports problem. It's a problem we need to address in this country and address it very seriously.

MG: You are also a Seahawks broadcaster. Has everyone gotten over the last-second Super Bowl loss?

WM: I hope they get over it. You gotta move on because nothing is going to change. To second-guess yourself for the rest of your life ... I've done that over big games in my career, but what can you do? Everybody always wants to do something different [afterward] than what actually happened. The play was called, it wasn't executed properly and New England made a good play to win the game.
