    The only previous conflict I saw is her pushing him before they entered the elevator.

    Can you really believe we are up to about four posters defending Rice or saying it's personal business?
    NFL ratings are down--the one group the NFL wanted to grow in was women--oops.

    I am happy with the attempts by the refs to get control of the game ON the field.

    Here's a few trial balloons.

    Allow a taxi squad guy to suit up at halftime if a guy at his position is permanently knocked out in the 1st half and the league verifies it.
    Keep the clocked stopped when going out-of-bounds the entire 40 seconds.
    Go with the longer extra point.
    Look at stopping the clock for 15 seconds with a first down.
    Stretch the chuck rule to 10 yards.
    Eliminate the pick/rub penalty.
    Call Peyton every time he moves to incite the defense to jump .

    First off, where in the hell did you see that NFL ratings were down? This year's superbowl was the most watched ever... you gotta be smoking something.

    And you know the one person who is really going to suffer for all this? The NOW wife. Her meal ticket and life of happiness just got flushed down the toilet because everyone else thought they should feel bad for her. She didn't want any of this.

    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.

    And an employer has the right to fire employees for any legal reason in an at-will state....and for cause in other states. This may well fall under 'cause,' esp. if he gets charged.

    Edit: sorry, didnt process the last part of your post earlier. Concur but also still see the League having vested business and image interests.

    On sports television today--it's an easy Google.
    This year's superbowl was the most watched ever
    That Super Bowl was last year and was a disaster for the NFL--setting it back several years.

    One week doesn't make a trend friend. And no it wasn't last year, it was 2014, and it was the most watched super bowl ever. So successful that they're even pondering having a cold super bowl in Minnesota (a horrible idea mind you, but nonetheless).

    Are you saying that wives should internalize this so as to be accused of far worse, as others women have been by other posters today?
    At 34-YOA, Rice should have plenty in the bank since that is yer direct concern.

    This film is no different than politicians getting secretly taped as Romney and his 47%.

    The difference is that Romney is an honorable man and has not been caught on
    tape knocking his future wife out, kicking her when she was down and draggin her on the flloor .
