    How was it a sucker punch? He threw the punch off his back foot while backing up and she was clearly charging at him head first. How is it a sucker punch when she was clearly out to cause him bodily harm?

    Unexpected and clean. Perhaps he had too many concussions and wanted to share.

    If you're charging at someone you better expect a punch to the head. Why would you just assume the other party isn't going to defend themselves? Because they're bigger than you? That doesn't make any sense.

    Career over. Future over. And now that the check just dried up, marriage over.

    He could be charged with attempted 2nd degree. He used deadly force without cause and is the aggressor.

    Without cause? From what I saw she struck first, after he spit on her. After she struck he backed away and at that point she charged. Do you actually understand how people respond to situations when they feel like they need to defend themselves?

    Aggravated lethal force without cause, he's the aggressor and previous conflict is assumed.

    I don't care how the contracts are written or what he did.

    I do not think it is any business of the NFL's what a player does in his spare time.


    I thought Vick was a pig (as Rice seems to be) and a sick man for what he did.

    But I still thought it was none of the NFL's business.


    Now, if the owner of the team in question thinks keeping Vick or Rice employed will hurt the bottom line - then by all means dump him.
    But that is up to the owner, not the league to make a moral judgement, imo.

    The league is a business, and it has a right to protect its image.

    Playing pro football is not a right. It's a privilege.
