Weigh In: Baltimore Ravens Terminate Ray Rice Contract After Domestic Violence Video Surfaces

Published: Monday 8th Sep 2014 by Rashad

Not since Solange vs. Jay Z has an elevator fight video sent such shockwaves through the media.

The talk of the day is unquestionably newly surfaced elevator surveillance footage that shows Baltimore Ravens’ running back Ray Rice violently attacking his then-fiancee at an Atlantic city casino.  Initially, when the report was first brought to light, Rice was subjected to a two game suspension and fine.

However, once NFL officials caught a glimpse of the footage in full (which they claim was just seen for the first time today), that suspension has now become indefinite.

Footage via TMZ:

Given that his then-fiancee, who married him just a month after this incident, has forgiven him…should the NFL follow in kind?

Do you feel the indefinite suspension was too harsh of a penalty?

Your thoughts?

    He should be in jail or in a ring with Mike Tyson, let’s see if he would knock another man with the same passion he beat his wife.

    What does this have to do with music or movies?

    If ur gonna repport on black American athletes make sure u also report on the ones that are doing good things like Cam Newton ro Colin Kapernick.

    Don’t ignore athletes and then only report when there it is something negative.

    Most athletes are involved in charities. Do a report on Russell Wilso. lebron James. Dwayne Wade, or Cam Newton’s charities.

    1st – the nfl should not suspend him. This is a domestic issue. And the NFL has no place to get involved in domestic issues.

    2. who are we to judge? everyone is always so quick to take the side of the female but who do we know this female did not act up and deserve an ass whooping. Miss with that men shouldn’t hit women s***. If you put ur hands on someone u deserve to get smacked simple.

    3. For all of you saying she shouldn’t get back with him – Why are u looking at their relationship. disagreements happen all the time in ‘real’ relationships this is just one that got out of hand.

    I hope they are happy, and I am sending my love.

      Deserving an ass whoopin??? Um…it seems to me that he swats at her first if you look at it closely. Regardless of who did what first, he is a beast of a man that makes a living tackling and hulking other men to the GROUND. Just because you can doesn’t mean you should, the fact that he possesses the body and abilities only makes him more responsible for his actions and his own strength.

      To have a woman beater on the NFL is a bad representation for the Baltimore Ravens, if they ignore this and act like this is a couple’s problem, the media would destroy them, the club should maintain their good image, if this was an infidelity case, i would have agreed with you but this is not.

      This most f***** up and idiotic comment I have read for the day…smh!!!! Hopefully someday you come across a woman and she whoops your ass like this. So what you’re saying you would beat your girlfriend/wife if you guys have a disagreement and she gave you a little smack huh?

    • Stop September 8, 2014

      you should seek help, i have a number to a good therapist you could talk to.

  5. NT September 8, 2014

    He needs to be arrested and jailed for this

  6. Tyler September 8, 2014

    Why does s*** always go down on elevators????

  7. Tyler September 8, 2014

    Wow, cant believe he knocked her out and drug her like a piece of luggage. SMH

  8. ~The Arcade~ September 8, 2014

    I don’t even want to see this despicable mess… No excuse and yes the NFL did the right thing!

  9. High September 8, 2014

    She didn’t want to lose that life style he gave her..she don’t want to go get a job and take care of herself nor do she want to have kids by a nice average dude because there is no “kidz-4-kash” programs…so she rather get beat down like a dog then have any self respect…she goes by the “cash rules everything around me” rule..

    Nobody is asking about how his “WIFE” feels. Hell, she still married the man after all of this and she’s still gonna be with him after all of this has pass. Hello did Rihanna get back with Chris Brown after all that mess. She gave ppl the middle finger, smoked her weed, & showed her tits on instagram. Trust my the Lifetime network, Mona Scott Young, or maybe BET probably calling Ray & Janay up now trying to work on a reality show going to marriage counseling and anger management.

    This is just awful. I’m not only upset by him knocking her out like that, but the way he dug her like she was some rag doll.

    He needs to be charged and jailed. If I was her I would file them papers and pressed charges. Hope she didn’t sign a prenup!!!!!!!!

  12. sigh September 8, 2014

    It’s wrong to put your hands on anyone!He could’ve just waited until they got off the elevator and just cooled off somewhere.I have mixed feelings about him losing his job though,because of all of the negative potentials it brings for he and his family.People are always calling for someone to be fired and then want to humiliate them after doing so! With no regards of how it’ll effect the person.What really kills me are the very woman calling for this guy’s job are the ones who are always screaming they are feminist and are equal to men,they start a physical altercation with a male and then scream you can’t hit me, I’m a girl!
    Hopefully he will be going to counseling. Jail doesn’t do anything but create a more advanced criminal when they get out.People are human they make mistakes,for some reason people who frequent online blogs tend to think otherwise!

  13. RICHIE_RICH September 8, 2014

    People please with the excuses. We don’t have a clue of why she still married him. She better have a damn good reason on why she did, or better yet she don’t owe us shitttttt.

  14. Molly September 8, 2014

    He should be in jail

  15. Kylie September 8, 2014

    They should’ve dropped him the first time around! I’m sure they saw this part of the tape but didn’t expect it to leak! Anyway I’m not here to judge. I’ve met them before in 2012 and they were both really nice people and they actually seemed GENIUNE, not forced.

  16. sashay September 8, 2014

    His now wife is an idiot (there is no amount of money in the world that would make me put up with this type of s***) and he’s an animal. Not only did he knock her out but he drag her like she was a worthless piece of s***. Both of them should be ashamed of themselves. She; for marrying him and him for this.

  17. OMG Logic!!! September 8, 2014

    So the NFL has these big strong men beating their women, but god forbid a gay man play openly in the NFL that’s just unacceptable.
