Arian Foster knows what he wanted to say, and made great points, he just said it wrong.
The Texans star running back wanted to point out the hypocrisy in Anheuser-Busch’s statement ridiculing the NFL for their handling of the leagues-domestic violence issue.
While explaining his point, Foster said that “domestic violence and alcohol are damn near synonymous.”
Domestic violence and alcohol damn near synonymous.

I understand what Foster was trying to say, but thats not the case at all. Alcohol is likely to cause an act of domestic violence, but the two are not the same.
They can go hand-in-hand, but they are not synonymous with one another. Assault, battery, or gender violence is synonymous with domestic violence, but not alcohol.
Liquor, strong drinks or spirits are synonymous with alcohol. Now, back to your regularly scheduled program.
