I will say that the way that Roger Goodall the commissioner of the NFL treated this whole Ray Rice debacle was absolutely disgusting. He now has a lot off of his shoulders now that the Baltimore Ravens have released him, simply because not many teams would want someone with this kind of reputation on their team. Well maybe they would, I never thought that Michael Vick would step on a football field again either.
As many people now know there was more footage released from the punch that lead to Ray Rice driving his then fiancee (now wife) out of an elevator as she was unconscious due to his blow. It shows him hit her once, her going to hit back, then him punching her and her hitting first a railing then hitting the floor of the elevator. The video is a bit hard to watch due to the nature of it but if you are interested in seeing the video here is the link. http://www.tmz.com/2014/09/08/ray-rice-cut-by-the-ravens/
Now I have a few questions for people who are so supportive of Ray Rice getting kicked out of the NFL for a season. I completely support this decisions but maybe it is time to take a step back and look at other people who have done well nearly the same thing. By other people I mean one person, Chris Brown. Ever since Chris Brown beat Rihanna back in 2009 I haven’t been able to stand him. Understandably people say to move on because he and Rihanna got back together a number of times but that doesn’t make what happened okay, right? I mean Janay still married Ray Rice.
I guess I don’t understand how people can hate Ray Rice and still have Chris Brown as their man crush Monday. That makes absolutely no sense in my opinion.
Just think about that last statement and realize that even though a woman marries someone or dates someone who beats them doesn’t make the action okay.
So bravo to the Ravens for dumping this monster and shame on Roger Goodall for taking so long to give this player an actual punishment.
