Video of Ray Rice Elevator Punch on Partner Released

To review: women with black eyes--2 games. Leagues with black eyes--indefinite. Does it add up now?

Sums it up for sure!

Video of Ray Rice Elevator Punch on Partner Released

Exactly my point. So why not suspend Rice for 6 games games as per new rules after the video was released? If Rice told the truth about what happened as Ozzie Newsome confirmed, how is suspending Rice indefinitely the correct thing to do? I assumed that he suspended Rice indefinitely because Rice lied but that doesn't seem to be the case. Something just doesn't add up.

And then he started kicking her

I don't recall seeing that but I only saw the video once but I haven't heard that he kicked her while she was unconscious. I do remember that when she was down, he had a look of disdain as if he was even more pissed that she was unconscious and was standing over her like he just trucked a FS to move the chains.

This entire situation went from bad to worse in 60 seconds even though as Ravens GM Ozzie Newsome said, Ray Rice told the truth about what happened in the elevator, so should it matter if anyone from the NFL saw the video or not?

Rice was suspended 2 games, Goodell changed the rules after the fact and said that anyone charged with domestic violence would be suspended 6 games. What I don't get is if Ray Rice told the truth, was suspended 2 games, the video is then leaked by TMZ and then he's released from his contract and suspended indefinitely by the NFL, how can Goodell's actions be justified?

Of course Ray Rice should've been suspended by the league and if he was suspended for 6 games or a year I think most would say that it was deserved and would've been okay with it. However, I believe that Goodell's actions are a reaction to the video being released for all to see and that is not a sign of leadership for someone in his position of power.

The only reason Rice has been suspended is because now the NFL looks REALLY bad for that lame two-game suspension after everyone can see exactly how Rice knocked her out.

Exactly! So now Goodell thinks that suspending Rice indefinitely will make people forget that he initially suspended him 2 games.

I can't wait to see if the NFLPA gets involved in this seeing as Rice was already handed a suspension (albeit a weak one) and is being punished even more so because TMZ leaked the entire video.

I think this was an overreaction by the Raven's since I'm more than sure they were made aware of what was on the video. It was already known that Ray Rice hit his then-fiance but now that the video of it came out, it's more damning?

IMHO, if it's made apparent that Roger Goodell saw the video, suspended Ray Rice only 2 games and now suspended him indefinitely because the video became public and he can save face for the weak 2 game suspension, I'm going to assume that he'll be out of a job as well.
