@patriot and @CA readerFirst off, What Ray Rice did was
despicable.and second, even if we do not judge him on the moral
grounds, his abhorrent behavior has caused a PR disaster for Ravens, and brought
a negative impact to the team's business interests.Baltimore
Ravens have every right to cut him off, even solely on business grounds is
Hey Thornbirds -"Why would the Fox News Newscasters joke about
this on their show?". . . because "Conservative"
entertainers are wild and crazy guys . . . Fun loving, free spirited, and not
at all bound by any sense of ethics or propriety that constrains their more
moderate colleagues in legitimate news organizations.
First, this guy deserves all the negative pub and punishment. What a bully and
coward.But a politically incorrect question -- not that I care if
someone finds it too blunt or incorrect -- why did his fiance turn around and
marry him???? I know... forgiveness, redemption, etc., but the sad
fact is any man who will hit a woman will, statistically speaking, hit her
again. She will forgive and claim it is a marital problem and blame herself. But
it isn't a marital or "love" problem; it is assault and battery, a
jailable crime. We taught our daughters, ONE Strike, Mister, and
@dn moderator The following was a comment not "feedback" but I
suspect you knew that @patriotDid you read the article?
Goodell made a statement, admitting in no uncertain terms, that he and the NFL
blow it by not taking more serious action from the start I think it is fair to
criticize them for not taking more serious action from the beginning but to
claim they are trying to cover "their sorry tails" is ridiculous. @ute alum not everything needs to turn into a forum for your
hatred for the President.
Why would the Fox News Newscasters joke about this on their show?They
joked about this saying, "Cameras should be taken out of elevators".Why would any news program say this, particularly a Conservative news program?
I also think Ray Rice has a great case for unlawful termination even there is
something in the NFL rules about such behavior unless he will still get paid
under his contract. How many times can you get punished for the same act?
I wonder if the investigating agency tried to obtain all the video the hotel
had. All they needed was a search warrant or subpoena. Then I wonder if the
agency failing to do so if Rice simply failed to tell what really happened in
the elevator hoping to avoid a more serious sentence which seems to have worked.
I can only imagine if the agency and the district attorney had seen the entire
video that Rice would have gotten off so lightly in court.
Why would the Ravens cut Ray now?? If they were going to terminate his contract
they should have done it when the incident first occured. What do they know now
they didn't then? They knew that he hit her so what difference does the
video make now? I think this is Roger Goodell and the Ravens bowing to poltical
pressure and taking this opportunity to make the penalty worse to cover their
sorry tails which in my opinion is pretty guttless and is why my respect for the
NFL drops every year. Rice admitted his wrong doing and if the league wanted to
extend the suspension they could have ...to an entire year if need be but CUT
him?? Obvioulsy domestic violence is terrible but so is drug abuse and so is
getting caught in a strip club while married which many NFL players do on a
regular basis. Why not cut the player for cheating on his wife in a public way?
Doesn't this embarrase the league and team in the same way? Is a woman any
less hurt for getting hit compared to being cheated on (adultery)? What a stupid
The video released a few months ago with Rice dragging her out of the elevator
should have been enough to release him right then. How did this go on until
now? There is no reason whatsoever to hit a women. Disgusting........
I applaud the Ravens for cutting him. What a disgrace that the NFL dropped the
ball on this case.
sentinel,He was already serving a 2 game suspension related to this
same incident but the actual footage of him hitting his girlfriend was never
seen by the public unto today, at which point the suspension turned into him
being cut.This doesn't make sense though - its not as if anyone
argued he had hit her. Even when Goodale NFL commissioner gave the suspension
he knew that Rice had hit her - there was already video of him dragging her out
of the elevator.So even though we all agree the 2 game penalty was
too light - I'm not sure what the NFL is now claiming happened that they
didn't already know before?
I'm confused. The article starts out by saying Ray Rice had been cut. The
article ended with him beginning his 2 game suspension. Which is it, he got cut
or he is serving a suspension? Thank you for any clarity that can be added to
