    I see what he is saying though. This woman is grown and has all of her faculties about her. What he did was wrong, end of story! However I wonder how much added stress this will add to the marriage. How about the nfl offer counseling or spiritual support. I think if they did this first then the public wouldn't be so outraged. Who knows, maybe they did. Not everyone who hits their wife looses their jobs. LEO and the military have a big problem with domestic violence too. Taking someone's livelihood will not solve the problem.

    True; probably not. However, I do believe that men who abuse women and children, be they football players or in any other job/career, need to be held accountable in some way. When they're not held accountable at all, they inevitably get the idea that violence against women and children is "okay," especially if they make multi-million-dollar salaries. Violence against women and children is NOT okay, and I don't buy the often-lame excuses from these guys, which are more self-serving than anything else.

    IMO guys who minimize or dismiss their abusive actions against their loved ones do so for one reason; to avoid criminal prosecution and possible conviction. Last time I checked, physical assault on another person is a felony offense in pretty much all states. Guys who punch their wives/girlfriends and hit their kids with switches are guilty of such offenses and should be charged accordingly.

    As for Rice, he was SHOWN punching his then-fiancee-now-wife in the face and knocking her unconscious. I call that an act of domestic violence, no matter what you choose to call it. IMO he should have been arrested for it immediately, as that is considered to be ASSAULT, an arrestable offense, then suspended for the rest of the season.
    He was arrested immediately. So was she.

    Okay. How long was Rice held in jail before being released? My guess; probably not that long.

    The same night he & his fiancée were arrested. Standard for first time offenders charged with simple domestic assault in Atlantic City.
