I meant to comment on this and forgot to. I've never been a Goodell fan, but I've never been angrier at the 2 game ban he handed to Ray Rice. And the way this whole thing was handled by the Ravens initially, when they were tweeting out quotes from his wife at their press conference and his wife apologizing for her involvement in this? I mean, it's all just awful. And Jay Glazer was on Dan Patrick on Monday, I believe, and said the NFL hadn't even seen the video inside the elevator. They had, of course, seen the TMZ video of Rice dragging his wife out of the elevator.
Who knows if Rice's wife instigated any of this. I don't care. I think all of us here were raised to never lay a hand on a woman in any way whatsoever. Either way, it's an ugly deal for the NFL.
I do appreciate Rice coming out and giving that press conference late last week where he was very candid about how this would never go away and he thinks about that night every day. To me, that's a man that understands what he's done and the consequences of that. There's remorse in that. But fact of the matter is, dude knocked out his wife and dragged her off an elevator. In terms of suspension, 2 games is just not enough.
