Ray Rice Cut, Suspended Indefinitely

The Baltimore Ravens said Monday they have cut Ray Rice from the team following TMZ’s posting of a video from February in which Rice is seen knocking out his then-fiancée and now-wife Janay Palmer. NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell announced minutes later that he has indefinitely suspended Rice from the league. Several months ago, video footage of Rice dragging Palmer out of the elevator led the NFL to suspend him for two games. It seems the league needs double confirmation of domestic abuse before firing players. In response to the initial outrage, the NFL established a new policy for domestic violence: First-time offenders will automatically be suspended six games and repeat offenders will be suspended indefinitely.
