So, apparently seeing a man knock out a woman is worse than si.ply knowing that he did. Why wasn't this the team and NFLs first move? It's the right move,but it's a bit late.

What a piece of trash. Hope he goes broke and ends up homeless.

All this proves is that the NFL was upset the footage got leaked. If they really had a problem with it, he'd have been gone when it first happened.

Congratulations to the NFL and the Ravens of Baltimore for taking a mere six months to do the right thing.

Just a great job guys.

The NFL is claiming to have never seen the video which is impossible to believe and something they should pray never comes out otherwise. The cover up can be worse than the crime.

Don't worry, it's almost October so they can make a ton of money for themselves by selling some pink jerseys and pretending that they're doing something to care about women.

NFL is probably lying about not seeing this video, but I'm not sure it should matter. The knowns included that there was an attack and that she was dragged off the elevator unconscious. It doesn't take a genius to figure out that an act of extreme violence caused that.

Now it really makes me wonder what all the evidence was in the Patriots spygate scandal that the NFL had quickly destroyed.

The AP reports the NFL saw the tape in April.
This cannot be good for the league or Roger Goodell.

This feels like the kind of situation where the players need to sit out a quarter or more until Goodell resigns.

I doubt the players will do anything about it. Yet, if they see it as a way to get rid of Mr. Judge, Juror and Executioner, they may exploit it. As a Steelers fan and lets face it, there is probably a guy or two like Rice on every team, so it will get dicey when its one of your guys who gets nailed. Having said that, my cheering for the Steelers has not been the same since Ben had his incident, frankly, they should have traded him and sucked for Luck, the next year.

Heard on the radio that the Ravens players dedicated their win against the Steelers to Ray Rice and there were women at the game wearing Rice jerseys.

Wow.

I honestly can't tell if the Ravens are trying to be dicks or if they're just stupid.
