Ravens cut Rice after new video surfaces

The Baltimore Ravens terminated running back Ray Rice's contract on Monday, hours after TMZ released a video showing him punching his then-fiancée in the face in an Atlantic City hotel elevator in February.

 :no:.........that is one of the most VIOLENT videos I have ever seen.  Absolutely BREATHTAKING in its cruelty.  Dude intended to inflict SERIOUS bodily harm on that girl.   >:(

So, query:  Now that Mr. Rice's contract has been terminated by the Ravens, do y'all think this girl's family will have to pay back that money that RR OBVIOUSLY gave them to be quiet?  :shrug:

Lord, have mercy.  :no:

She probably even more pissed off now since she married him and he doesn't have a job. There maybe some serious repercussions.

So, lay the boom on another man, possibly giving him brain damage=A-OK.

Hit your wife during a domestic dispute=Get fired?

What exactly are the ravens doing today? Why did the video getting released change anything from the past? What did they think happen after seeing her laying in the original video? He already admitted hitting her, and he was punished(laughably I must add) by the league...Why end the contract today? because it makes their organization(an organization built in a league going through one of the biggest class action lawsuits in American history by lying about brain injuries) look bad?

What exactly happened today?

Ray hit his wife. The lady in the video was his wife. At the time she was his fiancee at the time and they got married less than a week after the incident

The irony is now his wife suffers in this process as well because her income has been cut off. The Ravens terminate his contract with nothing else owed to him. The NFL also placed him on indefinite suspension which I don't believe will hold if challenged by the NFLPA because they had already punished him once. In the end it probably doesn't matter because I don't think even Arena Football will sign him now. His career is done.

I've always thought the sickest person in this situation was his now wife. She married him anyway?  :brickwall: I might be able to get past a little slap, but to knock me out like that! Hell no!  I don't give a damn how much in love I am in. There will be no marriage, and his a$$ would be in jail. Worst yet, I would have smiled, said I love you baby, made love to him, and once he fell asleep, I would have pulled the gas can out from behind the bed and lit his a$$ up. I would have not killed him. Once he became disfigured a little bit. I would put the flames out and called 911. Then I would have said 'baby you're going to live, but every time you look in the mirror and see your disfigured face, you are going to think about what you did to me.'

Yes, we ALL know that at the time of the incident that this girl was RR's fiancee. And, YES, we ALL know that subsequent to the incident she actually MARRIED a guy who slugged her like that.

You don't think there was some kind of INDUCEMENT to this girl's family to sit quietly while their daughter marries a dude who had previously committed such a VICIOUS assault on her?

She probably fell in love with the thug image.
Looking at her:
(http://www.eurweb.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/02/ray-rice-janay-palmer2.jpg)

She is not particular attractive, but she is decent enough looking to where she could have probably had her pick of a dude willing to treat her nice from her hood. She didn't want that though. She wanted that thug life and what went with the superstar player.

He most certainly did not, and I don't have to be without sin to know an attractive(isn) woman had her pick of men she wanted, and ended up with Boyz in the hood in the elevator. Not only that, but less than a week later she married the guy. :no:

Are you saying there were not plenty of other good black men who wouldn't have treated her better?

I view her actually the same way I view those kids across the West going to help ISIS in Iraq and the Levant. When your life is boring you need to find some excitement somewhere.

If you are a bored woman will you settle for the boring accountant bloke around the corner who would treat you like a queen, or will you go for the excitement of the rough around the edge brother who will give your life excitement?

This is pretty much what created the soap opera industry. Drama is the spice of life for many people.

Neymar why do you insist on making an issue of her attractiveness? You always act like you hold the ultimate measuring stick  on a woman's looks.  :shrug: You are the same as those jaded folk who say something like,  'she's pretty for a dark skinned girl'.   :brickwall: I honesty can find beauty in everyone. You should try it and stop cutting folk down.
 
Instead of measuring women, how do you grade your looks? Do you have a face that makes folk swoon? What about the body? Are you Men's Health quality? Is Shemar Moore in danger of you taking his job on CSI? Did God bless you with enough inches that the porn business would be knocking down your door if they knew?  Come on baby boy, you always act like you got the best looks, best body and the biggest d!ck on the planet. You sit on your throne and have the guards parade every woman in the kingdom before you so you can decide if she is worthy of your greatness.  :shrug:

First and foremost....I DO NOT CONDONE RAY RICE'S ACTIONS OR VIOLENCE AGAINST WOMEN!  However, we all know women have been socialized to do and say whatever they want to a man and push him both emotionally and physically any where they damn well please, without consequence.  They know what they are doing, they don't stop to think about their safety, they just assume they can do whatever they want and nothing will happen.  Every man out here gets thrown into that situation multiple times in their relationship...even when you try to calm things down the woman will continue to pursue the point to your frustration.  We deal with this as men and try to hold onto the mantra that a "real man does not hit a woman".   Some of us do not possess the patience or wisdom of Job and thus make the mistake that Ray Rice did.  He is paying a very high price for that as well.  What I fail to hear from anyone here is the principal of forgiveness.  When someone makes a mistake, admits to that mistake, and asks for foregiveness, tries to do what is right by marrying the person he injured, why do we as a society continuously seek to extract more and more punishment from him?  He and his wife were trying together to put this behind them and move on to a better life and understanding and yet as a society we won't allow that....its not good enough for us.....what about the two of them....don't they deserve the opportunity to prove all of us wrong that they can make it work without more abuse....The entire situation is a sad one on every level.  I for a fact know of people in my neighborhood growing up and family members that fought one week and loved each other the next and remained together until death did them part through the ups and downs and I bet many of you have family that went through the same thing.  I don't make any excuses for Ray Rice because what he did he deserves to pay a price but should'nt God be the one to extract the most severe of punishment as well as guide him to change his life for the better.

First and foremost....I DO NOT CONDONE RAY RICE'S ACTIONS OR VIOLENCE AGAINST WOMEN!  However, we all know women have been socialized to do and say whatever they want to a man and push him both emotionally and physically any where they damn well please, without consequence.  They know what they are doing, they don't stop to think about their safety, they just assume they can do whatever they want and nothing will happen.  Every man out here gets thrown into that situation multiple times in their relationship...even when you try to calm things down the woman will continue to pursue the point to your frustration.  We deal with this as men and try to hold onto the mantra that a "real man does not hit a woman".   Some of us do not possess the patience or wisdom of Job and thus make the mistake that Ray Rice did.  He is paying a very high price for that as well.  What I fail to hear from anyone here is the principal of forgiveness.  When someone makes a mistake, admits to that mistake, and asks for foregiveness, tries to do what is right by marrying the person he injured, why do we as a society continuously seek to extract more and more punishment from him?  He and his wife were trying together to put this behind them and move on to a better life and understanding and yet as a society we won't allow that....its not good enough for us.....what about the two of them....don't they deserve the opportunity to prove all of us wrong that they can make it work without more abuse....The entire situation is a sad one on every level.  I for a fact know of people in my neighborhood growing up and family members that fought one week and loved each other the next and remained together until death did them part through the ups and downs and I bet many of you have family that went through the same thing.  I don't make any excuses for Ray Rice because what he did he deserves to pay a price but should'nt God be the one to extract the most severe of punishment as well as guide him to change his life for the better.

This is 100% how I feel; but as a man SOCIETY will not let you have an opinion on this matter, no matter what the underlying circumstances are so I normally just walk in look and walk out never uttering a word.

Well at least police officers have gotten better about such situations. If Rice would have called the cops on her for punching him, or spitting on him, she would have caught the charge. You can't go around assaulting people, you have to call the law and let them handle it.

SPITTING ON SOMEONE IS IMO, THE LOWEST FORM OF DEGRADATION, INSULT, DISRESPECT OR HARM POSSIBLE BY ONE PERSON TO ANOTHER.  IF A WOMAN HIT ME I WOULD NOT NECESSARLY RESPOND IN KIND.

ON MY WORST DAY I WOULD NEVER UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES SPIT ON SOMEONE.  THIS IS HOW I WAS RAISED AND HOW I HAVE RAISED MY CHILDREN.  IF MY OWN DAUGHTER HAD SPIT ON HER HUSBAND OR SIGNIFICANT OTHER, I WOULD NOT UNDER ANY CIRCUSTANCES DEFEND HER ACT AND WOULD FIND IT VERY DIFFICULT TO PROSECUTE ANY MAN WHO RESPONDED LIKE RAY RICE DID.  THAT IS MY OPINION IN THIS MATTER.

Look, this is certainly NOT a laughing matter, but I just had to chuckle at Sierra's comment.  And Brutha Sierra, could not agree MORE with ALL of your comments on this RR situation.

That peeps on this board and elsewhere are making "excuses" for RR's HORRIFIC act on this girl just simply goes beyond the pale.  Fortunately, I NEVER witness and/or heard otherwise of my dad physically assaulting my mother.  And it never happened with Mrs. Strike's parents either.

And as I said to the boy who has been seeing my daughter for almost a year now - and I said this to him on the VERY FIRST DAY Ms. Strike introduced him to me and Mrs. Strike - if he EVER put his hands on her that I would "f him up!".  Both Mrs. Strike and Ms. Strike winced when I said it, but I sure as hell MEANT it, and the boy CLEARLY UNDERSTOOD that I meant it.

Finally, for you boys on this board who thinks there are "some" situations where it is perfectly acceptable for a dude to slug a woman the way RR did his ole lady, if you ever do it in MY presence, I'm calling the cops, and hope your a.z.z is LOCKED UP!  As I mentioned in another thread on this board on this RR situation, the ONLY excuse for inflicting that kind of harm on a woman is if you are trying to repel DEADLY force on yourself or others.....PERIOD!!!

:no:............dude, I was actually AGREEING with you until that last paragraph.  No disrespect to you, boss, but you have got to be out of your m'f'ing mind if you are even REMOTELY comparing this girl striking RR to the sheer BRUTE FORCE levied against her with that left jab.  RR is a compact tailback, in top physical condition, and prepared to take hits from defenders damn near twice his size when he is trying to find a hole in defensive lines to pick up some yards.

Even if RR stood absolutely still and this girl took her BEST SHOT at, say, his head, do you SERIOUSLY think she could do anywhere NEAR the damage that RR could inflict on her?

Good God.  :no:

It may not guarantee him a job but you would be surprised who might pick him up in week 14 when they are one player away from making the playoffs, this has died down and Rice has gone on the please forgive me tour.  Ochocinco is not a good example because he wasn't picked up because he was not a productive player for the 2 years leading up to his domestic violence case with Evelyn.  He didn't get picked up because in NE and Miami he was exposed as a wide receiver that could not run routes and learn the offense.  If he was Ochocinco in his prime he would have gotten picked up too.  Donte Stallworth got drunk and killed somebody and he played in the league for years, so go figure.  I think what a lot of people that follow football are really annoyed about is the smoke and mirrors and that the NFL dropped the ball gave this guy a 2 game suspension and because of the outcry it seems like they are trying to backdoor what they should have done when the front door was wide open.  This comes on the heals of players being pissed about the Irsay punishment too.  The league has been on this cleaning up the image campaign since Godell took office and the thought that there may be some wet laundry left in the washing machine is leaving a sour taste in folks mouths.   The realty is they didn't take it seriously because it was a domestic incident.  Had Ray Rice punched a stranger in the elevator he would have received a harsher suspension from the break. I wonder what the NFLPA is going to do.  This makes for some interesting labor relations issues for sure.

I'm thinking RR would not have been fired had he acted as though he "lost it" for a minute and picked her up. The ANALYSTS viewing the video can see without a doubt he showed little concern for her after the incident. He dragged her out of the elevator as though she was no more than a sack of potatoes.

How on earth can a man jeopardize an income of several $million/year by hitting a woman? You just don't solve marital problems with a left to the jaw or head!

TMZ is simply reporting that a "source" within the NFL TOTALLY DENIES the AP report which stated that someone from law enforcement sent the elevator videotape to the NFL back in April. The source goes on to say, according to TMZ, that when they say the NFL denies ever viewing the tape BEFORE this past Monday (9/8) when it was first released by TMZ, that the "league" is defined as NFL headquarters, NFL Films in New Jersey, and NFL network in L.A.  So the NFL is STEADFAST in asserting that they NEVER saw the film of RR pummeling his ole lady until this past Monday.  The TMZ report makes CLEAR that they are not "vouching" for the NFL "source'" story, but are simply reporting what was told to them.

For some reason you remind me of the person being pranked in this Youtube video. But you said homeboy is a good kid, but they can hide their dirt very well.

:lol:..........well, I would HOPE that I would not react as the dad did in this^^^^audio if I thought my daughter was planning to marry a dude damn near twice her age.  :lol:  But there REALLY is a cautionary tale here.

The gentleman said in response to crazy a.z.z Nephew Tommy  :lol:, that his daughter had attended "private" schools all of her life, had attained a college degree, and was now enrolled in grad school.  And there was NO WAY he would "allow" his daughter to marry a "jail bird".

Well, he also mentioned that his daughter is 25, the same age Ms. Strike will be in a couple of months.  And no matter WHAT background her parents provided for her, if Ms. Strike informed me that she was planning to marry a "bum," ain't a damn thing neither Mrs. Strike nor I could do about it.  :shrug:

But I would ALSO hope, and this relates to the topic at hand, that no matter WHO Ms. Strike decides to settle down with, that she has been imbued with enough self-esteem to never, EVER, allow some clown to put his hands on her with impunity. if she allowed that, and I was never informed of it, I would be BITTERLY disappointed in my daughter.  :(
