Ray Rice KO’s Fiancee

Did you hear about Ray Rice, the Baltimore running back who allegedly got in a fight with his fiancee, knocked her out and dragged her out of an elevator (shown below)

Did you also hear this gem?

Suspension? When I saw the video, I thought she was dead. In BSP’s preliminary justice and sentencing methodology, Rice should be headed for prison. But that’s not happening.

As much as some people want to believe Rice is done in Baltimore, he’s not. One, he’s not had a court proceeding. Two, Baltimore is an organization that circles the wagons as far as protecting their players. You know, the same organization that stuck by Ray Lewis when he was charged with murder, and Jamal Lewis when he was charged and convicted of drug trafficking. Those are heavy charges for sure. The NFL wants to clean up its image but it also defends its star players:

Still, plenty of players have been arrested for and/or found guilty of domestic assault.  A suspension for a first offense remains very rare.

In my opinion, Ray Rice will skate. The charges will end up either dropped or going away, despite the presence of the video. Also, a big deal will be made out of her hitting him. Obviously whatever she did to him did not have an equal effect on him. Of course, he’s an NFL running back. He gets hit more times in a series of downs than she’s been hit in her life (I hope).

About bittersportspills

I love sports. I don't love the hype, homerism, ratings talk, self-important egomaniacs, bias or any of the other nonsense you get with the national media. Nor will you get the two clowns on sports talk radio who stage phony arguments. It doesn't make it entertaining. It makes it time to turn on your iPod and jam instead of listening to white noise generators. This is the sports blog for you, the ones who don't like everything Los Angeles or New York. Just because the sporting media is based there doesn't mean we have to like their teams. We do treat them fairly, though. That means if one of those cities has an average QB who plays particularly well...we'll note it. If they're garbage, we'll say so. Instead of crying "why, why, why" like a certain sports media homer did in his radio broadcast. This isn't my job...I have a real one. Nevertheless, I'll post here when I make an observation. Common sense in sports is nearly dead. Now we're attempting to bring it back.
