Someone got some 'splainin to do.
Ray Rice gets a 2 game suspension for KOing his fiancee/girlfriend/wife.
His now wife, in a scenario that should be familiar to anyone who's been around someone in an abusive relationship, apologizes for getting her dear husband into the situation.
First, what the hack is it with the Ravens shielding felons?
THe Red Sox have run players out on midnight trades for similar situations, as they knew there was no way in hades the player could ever appear in Fenway in peace again. The Patriots cut ties with Mr. Hernandez as soon as his little issue became known.
Second, how is this "discipline"? Players have been suspended 4 games for selling college memorabilia, a year for multiple positive marijuana tests, 6 games for taking fertility drugs without notifying the NFL, ad nauseum. GO ahead and beat your wife, but don't get caught breaking NCAA rules or smoking an increasingly legal drug.
