    Raven ray Rice suspended 2 games

    The NFL is suspending Baltimore Ravens running back Ray Rice two games under the personal conduct policy for an altercation that left his then-fiancee (now wife) unconscious in an Atlantic City casino elevator in February.

    Rice will miss games against two AFC North rivals, the Cincinnati Bengals and Pittsburgh Steelers, before he's eligible to be reinstated Sept. 12. He'll lose a third game check.

    "It is disappointing that I will not be with my teammates for the first two games of the season, but that's my fault," Rice said in a statement release by the Ravens.

    "As I said earlier, I failed in many ways. But, Janay and I have learned from this. We have become better as a couple and as parents. I am better because of everything we have experienced since that night. The counseling has helped tremendously.

    "My goal is to earn back the trust of the people, especially the children, I let down because of this incident. I am a role model and I take that responsibility seriously. My actions going forward will show that."

    Ravens general manager Ozzie Newsome deemed the ruling "fair" in a statement, adding: "That night was not typical of the Ray Rice we know and respect. We believe that he will not let that one night define who he is, and he is determined to make sure something like this never happens again."

    Rice, a three-time Pro Bowler and standout during Baltimore's run to the Super Bowl title in the 2012 season, is among five Ravens who have been arrested this offseason. In mid-June, he met in New York with NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell.

    So pot smoking gets you four games, but spousal abuse only gets two?

    I know....she spoke up for him. Dont most abused speak up for their abuser?

    What kind of message does this send to our kids? Go ahead and smack around your girlfriend or spouse....no big deal. At least to the NFL

    There is a video of him dragging her out of the elevator in February, and she was unconscious.....

    I am just now hoping that the video of him actually pummeling her gets aired....maybe just maybe that will be enough to change the commissioners mind

    And as an aside.....ESPN you must fire Stephen A Smith for his comments on air about this on Saturday

    I'm not a Ravens fan, so I don't give a damn.

    There are some conflicting details on what actually transpired. In the police report it is implied that she hit him, though it is not clear who initiated the confrontation. Some eyewitness contradicted the police report and said she spit on him and he hit her with an uppercut. Medics apparently stated that aside from her losing consciousness, there were no apparent injuries. The video of him dragging her out of an elevator proves basically that she was knocked unconscious. Without knowing what the altercation was about and whether there was mutual violence passing judgment is inappropriate. I mean, we can say that he treated his soon-to-be wife in a horrifically unceremonious fashion after knocking her out, but beyond that we have no more to go on here.

    i disagree

    maybe things are different now....i dunno

    i was raised NEVER to strike a woman....EVER

    we have choices....we can walk away....we can restrain until they calm down....but as soon as you find any reason where it is acceptable behavior for a man to strike a woman, we part company

    yes....women can, and sometimes do piss us off

    the idea is....imo we still need to be gentlemen and find alternatives other than ever striking them

    i had a friend that went through an abusive relationship.....she always stuck up for him

    it took her getting such a beating that he almost killed her.....

    i hold abusers in the same respect as child abusers (lower than pond scum)

    In the NFL you can be a rapist and get a slap on the wrist. But a lot of NFL players, coaches, and owners are going berserk over a draftee who is openly gay, but hasn't raped or assaulted anybody. Go figure. LOL.

    Why does it matter what the altercation was about? What justifies one person to hit another hard enough to knock them out? That's assault. Pure and simple. Whatever she violence she may have done to him, it cannot in any way equal knocking her out (certainly spitting doesn't). If it's judged that she assaulted him, so be it, but knocking a person out, is well beyond the pale of claiming self-defense against a woman who was using only her fists (and saliva).

    This is the important stuff. We can’t get lost in discrimination. We can’t get lost in B.S. We can’t get lost tearing each other down. I want to make a point here that no matter what you look like, where you come from, how you worship, who you love, how you identify, and yeah, how you run, that if you have good public policy ideas, if you are well qualified for office, bring those ideas to the table, because this is your America, too. This is our commonwealth of Virginia, too.
