    Ray Lewis admits being involved in the murder of 2 men, and he gets honored by the Ravens with a statue.

    Ray Rice gets caught smacking his fiancée in an elevator. Terrible optics, bad behavior, but for whatever reason she forgave him. He pays a price, goes to his "intervention" (whatever that entailed), and the Ravens cut him.

    I'll respect the Ravens in some other lifetime.

    Don't you think men should change their attitudes towards women in general, that it's not okay to beat your wife or your girlfriend? and not just sports figures either.

    Depends on which elevator. If it were an elevator in the Willis (Sears) tower, I could see how someone might pass out from the dizzying ride down to the ground floor, especially if the person has had a couple of whiskeys before the ride, might make one pass out.

    What a ridiculous statement.

    Let me clue you in...I spoke of the new video. AFTER, Rice plead down a DV charge. AFTER the first video of him dragging his unconscious GF out of the elevator. AFTER the NFL's 2 game suspension for DV.

    I know what you spoke on, and you insinuated that people should have known from the first video what the second video showed. How could they have known?

    I'm saying that it should had not taken the second video for people to realize how Rice's girlfriend became unconscious...knowing that he admitted to DV.

    Maybe I'm dead wrong that people should have enough snap to figure stuff out.

    Because he said she was drunk and was aggressive with him first. However if you see the tape you can see she never put her hands on him. She moved towards him( looked like she was gonna get in his face and yell) and he pushes her off and then punches her.

    Yes, of course I do. I was simply responding to THIS particular case. Sorry if that was unclear.

    While awful, what Brent did was not with intent. He made a horribly bad decision, but did not willfully intend to hurt anyone, especially his best friend.

    I still can't believe Ray Lewis was allowed to play after willfully covering up a murder.

    What Rice did was willful, and in today's society, far more unacceptable than a DWI.

    Re: Raven ray Rice suspended 2 games

    In a post from her Instagram page Tuesday morning, and verified by the Baltimore Sun, Janay Rice writes, "I woke up this morning feeling like I had a horrible nightmare, feeling like I'm mourning the death of my closest friend. But to have to accept the fact that it's reality is a nightmare in itself."

    She continued, "No one knows the pain that the media & unwanted options from the public has caused my family. To make us relive a moment in our lives that we regret every day is a horrible thing. To take something away from the man I love that he has worked his ass of for all his life just to gain ratings is horrific."

    Rice ended the post by saying, "THIS IS OUR LIFE! What don't you all get. If your intentions were to hurt us, embarrass us, make us feel alone, take all happiness away, you've succeeded on so many levels. Just know we will continue to grow & show the world what real love is! Ravensnation we love you!"
