    Re: Raven ray Rice suspended 2 games

    This story broke several days ago when my wife and I were still on the road.
    Not a single sportscaster on Sirius Radio, ESPN or all the other outlets agreed with the Commissioner and said so vehemently.

    I brought this up on the NFL thread and only one long-time poster agreed with the suspension .

    I agree......this two game suspension was way to harsh......based upon NFL precedent.

    Not what I said--only one person on this forum thinks it is just right--everyone else way too little.
    My first reaction was two years not two weeks--most Sirius Radio and ESPN guys wanted at least eight games.
    You've heard "The Man" say he should be kicked out of the league and he's a Raven fan .

    Ray Lewis got no game suspensions and was involved in a double murder in my city........why would Ray Rice be suspended for two games for dragging his drunken girlfriend out of an elevator.......makes no sense. I think Ray Rice should have honed his pre-game Zulu war dance and 'speech' so ESPN showed it every week......and the DWFs couldn't do without it.....the NFL would have left him alone......or maybe another 500 yards rushing would have done it.

    why?

    Ray Lewis should have been kicked out of the league....he wasnt....another bad NFL decision

    This is Mr. Rice acting as if men are still neanderthals.....

    We no longer walk around with clubs knocking out our women

    And there is never any justification for doing do

    What he did was knock his then girlfriend unconscious, and then drag her out of an elevator

    that sir is assault...and spousal abuse (since she is now his wife)

    the penalty should be a MINIMUM of six games.....and if it was my decision, he would sit for the season

    He would also have to speak to a few battered women's shelters

    Maybe then he will get the idea on how wrong he was

    nothing yet

    my guess....500k fine

    and maybe even loss of a low round draft choice

    Re: Raven ray Rice suspended 2 games

    Which is more absurd....?

    The fact that (1) Rice received only a two-game suspension by the NFL, (2) that the legal system convicted him of nothing, or (3) that the woman he punched married him anyway?

    The NFL delivered the harshest punishment of anybody, sad as it is.
