Ray Rice
« on: September 08, 2014, 10:42:00 AM »
1-year suspension? Life-time ban?

Can't see the league being stupid enough to stick with 2 games now that this has been released



After watching that video, I'd like to see him gone for good. Let him go flip burgers. The guy is scum.

There's volumes on the subject of domestic violence and how the victims blame themselves or defend the sicko wife beaters who attacked them....frankly, it's not uncommon.

As for Rice, I'm for a lifetime ban. I never want to see him on a football field again. And I'm sickened by the number of Ravens fans who, if no longer actively defending him quite as vigorously, clearly want to minimize what this animal has done. On a talk radio show today, one of these intellectual giants went after the media for wanting to "crucify" Rice. Yeah. Taking up for a wife beater....classy.

100% agreement on the above points.

As he has a history of smacking her around, I hope he doesn't take his getting cut/indefinite suspension out on his wife.  :(

He's also been suspended by the NFL indefinitely.

Even better.

My guess is that he'll be back next year in a Cowboys uniform.

I'm assuming that's tongue in cheek. Especially since you could insert "Raiders" or even "Jets" in the discussion. Besides the indefinite ban from the NFL, I don't believe there is a team in football that would take him. And if the Cowboys did, my 40 years of being a Cowboy fan is gone.

I doubt the League will let him back. Goodell already screwed the pooch with the 2 game slap on the wrist. The PR hit would be enormous if they let Ray Rice back in next season.
