Ray Rice Wins Appeal, Eligible to Play

Ray Rice has won his appeal against the NFL and is eligible to play immediately:

Rice had been suspended since Sept. 8 following the public disclosure of a videotape that showed Rice striking his then-fianceé in an Atlantic City elevator.

Rice had been suspended for two games prior to the release of the videotape, but in the wake of public outrage — Rice knocked Janay Palmer unconscious with a punch — the NFL suspended Rice indefinitely.

The NFL maintained that it had not seen the incriminating videotape when commissioner Roger Goodell levied the two-game suspension this past summer.

However, Rice argued that the NFL was in possession of all the facts of the case at the time of punishment, and that he was in effect being punished twice for the same offense. Rice appealed the NFL's decision at a hearing in early November, a hearing at which Goodell testified.

At that hearing, Ravens general manager Ozzie Newsome indicated that in discussions with Goodell, Rice had confessed to hitting Palmer. But Goodell and the NFL maintained that Rice had been less than truthful in his account of the night in question.

Rice was released by Baltimore in September and is currently a free agent. He is eligible to be signed by any team, though there is considerable question about whether he'll be able to contribute to a team on the field or overcome what would surely be substantial protest against him off it.

Something went wrong, try refreshing the page...

I was upset that he was suspended at all.

The only thing he did was retaliate after he was repeatedly assaulted, and the blow that knocked her out was a defensive action as she was attacking him again.

Good to see that somebody is finally looking at this objectively for once and seeing it for what it is.

I don't know how in the fuck he can even be charged and she can't. If he's facing assault on court, so should she.

Equal fights.

Cheerleader accidentally bumps into Ray Rice.
Ground and pound to her face ensues.

I think the message is if you hit your wife you'll lose millions of dollars and your job. Not to mention all the bad press picking your every move apart.

Kobe Bryant possibly raped a slutty hotel worker. Ray Lewis possibly killed a guy. Ron Artest went into the stands to beat up a fan who threw a solo cup at him starting a brawl on live TV.

As far as professional athlete punishment, Ray Rice received a pretty substantial punishment.

Kobe was innocent, Ray Lewis only got a misdemeanor charge of obstruction of justice, and Ron Artest was banned for a year from the NBA.
