    Baltimore Ravens cut Ray Rice after new video surfaces - ESPN

    "The Baltimore Ravens terminated the contract of RB Ray Rice this afternoon."

    The NFL also took action, saying on Twitter that commissioner "Roger Goodell has announced that based on new video evidence that became available today he has indefinitely suspended Ray Rice."
    He's been cut, and indefinitely suspended from the league. This means he doesn't get paid anymore.

    DIdnt say it was. She has no more right to strike him than he does to strike her however.

    I disagree, 6 game suspension ( like league policy) would have been more in line.

    But the NFL caved. god help anyone who gets excoriated by the media, the lemmings will surely scream ( do lemmings scream)

    Just wanted to say hi..

    That doesn't draw a meaningful equivalence.

    Re: Raven ray Rice suspended 2 games

    I think what’s important here is that Ray has taken responsibility for this,” Goodell said to reporters in Canton, Ohio, at the Pro Football Hall of Fame, at the beginning of August. “He’s been accountable for his actions. He recognizes he made a horrible mistake, that it is unacceptable, by his standards and by our standards.”
    apparently not (NYT source)

    That's not fair to her. Maybe she is a gold digger, not saying she is or isn't, but domestic violence is very serious. Maybe he threatened her if she didn't marry him or to not report the abuse, we have no idea about their relationship and to blow her off like that is perhaps ignoring a terrible situation she may be in.
    I call my own shots, largely based on an accumulation of data, and everyone knows it.

    If he's wrong, she's wrong.

    But the law handles disparity of force differently.

    Hi!

    That was a brutal display of force and then he just dumped her...completely vulnerable in a public place.

    She's a moron to have married him and IMO he deserves a formal assault charge...and to be 'fired.

    He's so much more wrong, it's a different league.

    I know the law. You need to recognize the difference between throwing a fit and hurting someone unnecessarily.
