    Why do you wonder why his fiancee was arrested?

    She assaulted him as well. Difference being that he's a man and a professional athlete... so his strike effectively ended the fight.

    It's 2014...unless Rice is illiterate he HAS to have read up a little on the current state of domestic violence laws. If YOU are the man, YOU have to walk away. End of story. Not saying it's right or wrong, but in any domestic assault, one party is going...and well over 90% of the time THAT party is a man.

    Unless she pull a knife, gun or something else that could be considered dangerous like a screwdriver he doesn't have a leg to stand on and is going to get screwed.

    Yeah, exactly.

    This is nothing of a problem for the Ravens. What the hell do they care? They've got a team full of thugs already.

    He's obviously going to be a big part of their plans going forward, so they'll deal with whatever minor suspension of a game or two that he gets, and be fine; if it even comes to that.

    We heard the same thing with Alfonzo Dennard...parts 1 and 2.

    Still, to put it in perspective, the Ravens do not have a serial killer on the team.

    Do I care about his off the field issues? No. Plenty of NFL players are crappy people regardless if he is totally at fault or not. I and I think the Ravens mostly care about his 3.1 YPC last season.

    Neither do the Pats.

    We dump our problem players (Dennard hasn't been a problem since he's been with the team). The Ravens extend theirs. :eek:

    Seriously, though, your point is well taken.

    I thought this thread was gonna be about how they overpaid Suggs pretty badly. :p

    But yeah, this isn't even as close to as bad as Suggs; didn't he pour bleach on his baby's momma? Ravens are screwed and not just because their team is a bunch of thugs. Their cap situation is almost as bad as the Cowboys.

    I'd be lying if I said I was shocked to learn that yet another NFL player is a wife beater. Hopefully once all of the facts come out it won't be as bad as it looks.

    It makes Rice a scumbag, but I don't think it makes the Ravens in trouble. Rice is virtually uncuttable unless the Ravens decide that they absolutely have to let him go for PR or moral reasons.

    As for them being in trouble, I think the fact that they have a slightly above average QB making elite money is a far bigger problem than having Rice on the roster. Newsome is great GM, but I think he may have more problems than he can dig himself out of. He may need a few years of rebuilding. As good as Newsome is, he hasn't built a Super Bowl competitor year in and year out. They seem to go from elite to mediocre and back to elite.

    I think the Ravens dug themselves a hole with the Joe Flacco contract, and I think they overpaid for Suggs. Flacco has cap hits of $14.8M, $14.5M, $28M and $31M the next 4 years, and the dead money to cut him is roughly $38M, $36M, $29M and $15M in each of those 4 years. I will be very surprised if the Ravens are a serious contender for at least 3 years.

    Once the video of Rice dragging his unconcious girlfriend out of the elevator surfaced, it's gonna be really hard for Baltimore to keep him. Goodell has been all over the image problems, and this is gonna leave a mark on his outreach to women's program.

    Rice has shown he is a scumbag, and mark my words, this story has traction and will be getting even more airplay in the Baltimore/DC area because it's the offseason. The sharks smell blood in the water, and the mediots and reportards will be all over this like a dog on a bone.

    I, for one, couldn't think of a better team to have this happen to. :cool:
