    I don't disagree with you here. But...

    I do have to say that I do think the media has taken this too far. One merely has to note that she did indeed marry the man that assaulted her. According to a few news sources that I have read, they did go to counselling and have ironed out their problems. While we do not know if they're being truthful, we have to take them at their word. Hopefully Rice has repented, and will never ever lay a hand on another woman ever again. So I personally do believe he should get another chance. Heck if she can forgive him, why can everyone else?
    No men are anywhere, and Im allowed to go in, because Im the owner of the pageant and therefore Im inspecting it, Trump said... Is everyone OK? You know, theyre standing there with no clothes. Is everybody OK? And you see these incredible looking women, and so I sort of get away with things like that.

    why would her opinion count? the league and team is doing what is in their best interest, not hers.

    As a kid I watched my mom get the **** beat out of her for years by her boyfriend at the time. The fact she went ahead and married him doesn't really mean much, many codependent women in abusive relationships do the same thing. I don't know if Ray Rice has hit his wife again or not. I do know though that every man I have ever known that hit women didn't quit until they were physically unable to do it anymore. If she wanted to go ahead and marry him then that's her business. However, if they will suspend you or throw you out of the NFL for smoking a joint, then they sure as hell ought to for beating a woman.

    His wife never filed charges over the abuse. That ought to tell you something. Don't understand that one but I know it goes on. We could guess till the cows come home but that's all it would be. Low self esteem? or maybe she puts up with the **** for the finer things in life. The video of Rice knocking her out with a single punch on the elevator was leaked to TMZ. They are the ones that exposed the ordeal. Rice's last contract with the Ravens was in 2012 for 35 million dollars. From what I've been reading he will get to keep 25 million and will lose out on the last 10 million. These two are use to livin mighty high on the hog. If she is going to "stand by her man", guess both of them will have to scale back and go on a budget.

    I wonder if anyone in the news media and all those sanctimoneous busybodies who think of themselves as protectors of women talked with Janay about it before destroying her husband's career.

    Naw. They wouldn't have cared.
    Yeah, we are going to excuse people who sucker punch women until they are unconscious because the woman he knocks about forgives the criminal .

    Sorry, but for people like that there is only one place, jail.

    I feel bad for her, really bad. That probably wasn't the first time he hit her and it probably wasn't the last. A lot of abuse victims love their abuser, and don't often see the light until after they are taken away from the situation. I hope she gets the help that she needs and gets out of that bad situation. No one deserves to be in that kind of relationship.

    Re: Ray Rice's Wife, Janay, Defends Him and Rips Media In Statment

    Here's a thought - perhaps the new Mrs. Rice is a little afraid to have her loving, adoring husband at home in the house 24/7 with no job to go to, no apparent hobbies, friends who now shun him. Perhaps she's a little worried that that level of closeness is going to endanger her more.

    But hey, if she wants to stand by her man that's all good too. Since Ray Rice has been made a multi-millionaire by the NFL plus whatever endorsements he hooked up with along the way, he should be well taken care of for the rest of his and his wife's lifetime - her's maybe not so long. Why not take that opportunity of no job to train for and go to and use it to travel around the country and counsel young men and women about the dangers of spousal/partner abuse and teach young men about respecting women and be an example for them of how stupid mistakes can take down the mighty. Would be good for him and his wife and may help keep some other young men from making the same mistakes.

    But all this is moot because Rice will get his suspension extended to 6 games from 2 and he'll be back in the league later this year as soon as a contending team has their running back go down with injury and at the latest some sad sack team like Oakland or Jacksonville will give him a contract and he'll probably have learned nothing from the experience. Maybe he'll become famous as the next OJ.

    Seriously people there is no evidence of any other time when he hit his wife. Just assuming it is repeat behavior and then treating him as a repeat offender is poor form. Oh and people, they did get help.

    We are trying to get back to an "Off with their heads" style society MG. People like you are gumming up the works. It is impossible that people can have issues fixed through counseling and rehabilitation.

    Until we discuss the prison system (where everyone wants to send Ray Rice), then everyone complains that our prisons are overcrowded and we should be focusing our efforts on rehabilitation.

    When someone robs a bank, do they get the first one free?

    When someone kills a person, do they get an mulligan for the first murder?

    This attempt to trivialize Rice's actions as out of character or a one time shot (pun intended) is to trivialize spousal/partner abuse.
