http://nypost.com/2014/07/24/r...cking-out-wife/Not to try and start another controversial thread, but this one is also football related.Ray Rice has been suspended for 2 games for assaulting his girlfriend/now wife. He was videoed dragging her from an elevator in Atlantic City.Seems this 2 game suspension isn't sitting well with many people. Considering that all players who test positive for anything that isn't on the official NFL list of banned things, get a 4 game suspension, even if the player had no idea what he was taking was banned. This does seem like an outrage. Goodell has been extra tough on players, coaches etc. but this is awfully light for a football player who strikes and hauls out a woman, 2 games. Bah Humbug. If you've never seen the original videohttp://www.tmz.com/2014/02/19/...y-video-arrest/

He got caught again, and again, and again. He certainly deserved the suspension he got as well.

Want to know what I say?NOBODY SHOULD HIT ANYBODY.This is the new age, men are the minority. And if you start with some feminist crap, I swear i'll pwn you like I did the "gender studies" professor who tried to say "all things equal a woman earns 80% of a man." .. which is not true...Woman actually earn 115% more than a man all things equal. but overall earn 80% less due to career choice. (just saying)2 game suspension? I say no freaking way. It's defiantly over the top. He hasn't been convicted of anything, and if his wife stays with him she deserves everything she gets. In this day and age of PFA happy judges, Police, neighbors, family members, woman's shelters, Church advocacy groups.(list can go on) if she honestly stays with him, even if its only for the money, she's getting what she wants INCLUDING the two black eyes. Not only that, we have people in the NFL BULLYING other players and hazing, (which is in of itself also ASSUALT, yet you don't see two game suspensions there do you?) this is a domestic incidence and the proper legal channels should and will be used. And if they aren't re-read above.as for your daughter, if she ran at me, I wont lie, i'm punting her across the room. do you have sons? you aren't concerned for their safety?

On Thursday, the NFL punished Baltimore Ravens running back Ray Rice with a two-game suspension after the player allegedly knocked out his fiancée during an altercation in February.
While many around the league have been highly critical both of Rice's conduct and of what's been perceived as a lenient punishment, ESPN panelist Stephen A. Smith sought to temper that criticism during a "First Take" segment on Friday.
In a long-winded statement, Smith acknowledged a man has "no business putting [his] hands on a woman," then slowly worked toward the conclusion that women should also do their part not to give men a reason to beat them.
"We know [abusing women is] wrong," Smith concedes, though toward the end of his monologue he casts doubt on who, exactly, is to blame for said abuse, given "the elements of provocation."
In February, after TMZ obtained security camera footage of Rice dragging his unconscious fiancée out of an elevator, Smith, while critical, ultimately defended the player at the time. "It's important to recognize and reiterate [that] we do not know what happened ... inside that elevator," said Smith, concluding, "There is absolutely nothing ... that has ever brought [Rice's] integrity into question until now. ... He deserves the benefit of the doubt."

Refused to stand for The National Anthemn, so compromised and wasn't on the field. Why was their no talk of suspending him as damaging to the brand? Why couldn't you say that to Sam? Look less than 3% are homosexual, churchgoer's, Mosque goers etc. are going to moved away, therefore... I suspect that which side of the political spectrum you come from as much as the content determines your suspension. I think this has potential -if it's not already there - to be a device that forwards an agenda.
