Default Ravens Cut Ray Rice

Why are we just now getting to see the graphic video from inside the elevator of him punching her, or was the public never supposed to see that?! Thank you TMZ! What's disturbing to me is that she excused his actions and went ahead and married him, but I know that happens a lot in domestic violence cases. Cynical me is thinking she went ahead and married him for his money, and he married her thinking it would make all this go away faster.

The NFL is claiming they just saw the more graphic video today, but a reporter is saying that's not true...who do you believe?

The more explicit video, though, raises questions about what information Goodell reviewed before deciding to suspend Rice and whether he took the issue seriously enough. The league has said Goodell took his cue in part from law enforcement officials, who had access to more information than the league.

Brian McCarthy, a spokesman for the N.F.L., said: “We requested from law enforcement any and all information about the incident, including the video from inside the elevator. That video was not made available to us and no one in our office has seen it until today.”

But several reporters, including Peter King of Sports Illustrated in July, have reported that officials from the N.F.L. and the Ravens had seen the more graphic video from inside the elevator.

Here's another article. Everyone's actions in this case are disgusting!

Quote:
Ray Rice domestic violence case shows NFL, Roger Goodell’s willful blindness and need to maintain plausible deniability - by Sally Jenkins of the Washington Post

http://www.washingtonpost.com/sports...ffd_story.html (Click link for complete article)

About Roger Goodell’s raised consciousness. About the NFL commissioner’s seemingly unbidden turnabout on the subject of domestic violence, his uncharacteristic admission that he “didn’t get it right” when he suspended ex-Baltimore Ravens running back Ray Rice only two games for socking his fiancee unconscious, while throwing the book at marijuana tokers. About the curious timing of Goodell’s much-congratulated epiphany, and the Ravens’ sudden moral outrage, and the appearance of that stomach-heave inducing elevator video on TMZ, in which Rice decks his bride so hard she drops like a piece of lost luggage from an airplane bay.

The Ravens promptly terminated Rice’s contract on Monday and Goodell, ever in pursuit of a stainless suit-coat, reopened the case and suspended Rice indefinitely under his revised policy on domestic assault, given this graphic “new” evidence. But really, what did Goodell and the Ravens think a professional football player knocking his wife unconscious looked like?

That Goodell is an unduly vain commissioner, and a self-serving one with his eye on some further prize, has always been obvious. That he obfuscates and evades on tough issues unless they are convenient for him, that his convictions are highly selective and so is his enforcement, has never been more apparent. On Monday morning, with the surfacing of that video, Goodell’s nature became totally clear. The NFL claims in a statement that no one in the league office had previously seen the tape. That is almost surely not the truth, unless the NFL wanted it that way. This is a league that works with Homeland Security, confers with the Drug Enforcement Agency, collaborates with law enforcement and has its own highly equipped and secretive private security arm. You’re telling me it couldn’t get a hold of a grainy tape from an Atlantic City casino elevator? But TMZ could?

If NFL executives and Baltimore Ravens staff had never seen that tape before, there are only two reasons: willful blindness, and the determination to maintain plausible deniability. Two NFL analysts with reputations for impeccable sources, Peter King of Sports Illustrated and Chris Mortensen of ESPN, were told months ago the league had to have seen the tape. Ray Rice’s own attorney had a copy of it. It simply defies belief that league and team officials couldn’t have seen it if they wanted to.

my first reaction, was she could have never have seen the video .. that or she is just in it for the money ... some people figure, they landed a rich dude, if i leave now i get nothing, might as well stick it out and divorce him in a couple years and get my dough ... that is until he kills her ... and trust me, if he is able to hit her like that, he will have no problem killing her (before all of this was made public of course)

Digusting isn't it! And his isn't the only recent case. They've got a guy from the Carolina Panthers who was convicted in his case and he's repealing, he played last Sunday. Btw, did you happen to catch that press conference by the Panthers' owner, he was crying, not sure why...let's see if he puts actions to tears and takes that guy off the roster! And then there's another player from San Francisco also involved in a domestic violence who was allowed to play last Sunday. These cases aren't anything new to the NFL, they act as enablers to these guys by excusing their violent behavior against women!

If I'm saying it correctly, he was charged with a felony in this, but then she drops the charges or says she's not filing charges and the prosecutor gives him this "diversionary" deal and the judge agrees to it. He should be in jail no matter if she filed charges or not! As for her, I agree with you RNC! He could have killed her when he hit her in the elevator and she hit her head on that railing. That was disturbing enough to see, but then if you watch him right after he coldcocks her, he just stands there so casually like it was nothing. Makes you wonder.... And then when he's dragging her out he just drops her on the floor. He's lucky he didn't kill her. I think they said she had a concussion. That tweet or whatever she put out blaming the media was sad.

I hate to be cynical, but if you're not in it for the money, etc., why would you stay let alone go ahead and marry the guy who just committed violence against you? I don't see how this relationship will last especially if he feels like he's not going to be able to play again. I'm sure he blames her for this, for all of it. Publicly he may blame alcohol, etc., but in his head, and maybe privately with people he really trusts, I'd bet he's blaming her for all his misfortunes right now. She ought to thank GOD that that elevator had cameras in it because I think you are right that public exposure is what is keeping her safe from his wrath right now.

I'm going to just stick this in here since he happens to be in the NFL.

This just happened today involving Adrienne Peterson of the Vikings, he's accused of injuring his child while disciplining him with a switch. The lady in the news video said "branch"...there's a big difference between a switch and a branch. She also said the boy was 4 years old. I know children need discipline at times but how bad could a 4-yr old be to deserve whipping him with a switch hard enough to leave bruises and cuts?

Vikings star Adrian Peterson indicted on felony charge of injury to a child

By Greg Botelho and Michael Martinez, CNN
updated 9:17 PM EDT, Fri September 12, 2014

http://www.cnn.com/2014/09/12/justic...rson-indicted/

(CNN) -- A grand jury has indicted star NFL running back Adrian Peterson on a felony charge of injury to a child, spurring the Montgomery County, Texas, Sheriff's Office to issue a warrant for his arrest.

Authorities didn't divulge details Friday about what led to the charge. But Peterson's lawyer said the "charged conduct involves using a switch to spank his son" -- explaining that his client did so while doling out discipline "much like "he experienced as a child growing up in east Texas."


Rusty Hardin said "Adrian never intended to harm his son and deeply regrets the unintentional injury."

Rather, Hardin characterized the former NFL MVP as "a loving father who used his judgment as a parent to discipline his son."

Peterson will travel to Houston and will then "post bond as soon as it can be arranged," according to Hardin.

"(Peterson) will continue to insist on his innocence of any intended wrongdoing," the lawyer said.

Hardin claims that his client has "cooperated fully with authorities and voluntarily testified before the grand jury for several hours."

"Adrian will address the charges with the same respect and responsiveness he has brought to this inquiry from its beginning," the lawyer said.

Right after news broke of the indictment, the Vikings released a statement saying they were "in the process of gathering information regarding the legal situation."

The team came back a short time later to announce that its offensive catalyst has been deactivated for Sunday's game against the New England Patriots.


According to Texas law, a person can be convicted of an injury to a child offense if they are proven to have caused bodily or mental injury "intentionally, knowingly, recklessly or with criminal negligence" or causing such harm by omission. A child, by this definition, must be 14 years old or younger.

The alleged criminal offense took place in Montgomery County, which is north of Houston.

Peterson grew up in Palestine, Texas, which is 150 miles north of Houston and 100 miles southeast of Dallas.

A running back for the Vikings since 2007, he rushed for 75 yards in his team's season-opening 34-6 rout of the St. Louis Rams.

In 2012, he was named the league's most valuable player when he ran for 2,097 yards, just nine yards short of the single-season mark, the NFL said.

Peterson, 29, lost a 2-year-old son last year who was living with his mother in South Dakota, and her boyfriend, Joseph Robert Patterson, was charged with murder. Patterson has denied the charge and said the boy choked on strawberry fruit snacks, the Argus Leader of Sioux Falls, South Dakota, reported.

He also was indicted for an alleged attack on the boy's mother and pleaded not guilty to those charges in July, the Argus Leader reported.

News of Peterson's indictment casts another shadow over the NFL, which is reeling from the fallout over then-Baltimore Ravens running back Ray Ric allegedly punching his then-fiancee Janay Palmer in a casino elevator.

A New Jersey grand jury indicted Rice for third-degree aggravated assault; he pleaded not guilty and entered a pretrial intervention program for first-time offenders that could clear him if he successfully completes the requirements.

the ray rice and adrien peterson issues are a black eye for the nfl ... anything even remotely out of line now will be magnified .. the nfl is all about money and sponsorship, so it is going to take harder stance on players getting out of line ..

Looks like the Vikings owner decided to not allow Peterson to play after sponsors started saying they were worried. It's ALL about the money.

I agree, I don't think this was the first time, at least for him, he looked too comfortable hitting her.

Did you see these women fans coming out supporting both Rice and Peterson? Disgusting! I agree he should feel what it's like to get punched like that, and also those women fans for saying the stupid shyte they were saying! As for Peterson, whatever he did to his kids, he should get that but harder and don't stop 'til he's crying like he made those babies cry! I heard he has 7 kids by 7 different women, he needs to be gelded.
