Ray Rice Suspension: Twitter Blasts NFL, Roger Goodell

The NFL handed down Ray Rice his suspension on Thursday, sidelining him two games for “violating the league’s personal conduct policy,” according to The Baltimore Sun. Rice allegedly beat his now-wife, Janay, unconscious, and was spotted by casino security cameras dragging her out of an elevator.

To recap: Rice struck his then-fiancee hard enough that she was knocked unconscious. He then dragged her body out of an elevator. And Roger Goodell views that as a minor issue – that’s the only way I can describe a two-game suspension.

Maybe I’m missing something here, but to me the NFL has got some serious issues. Smoke weed and a player is lambasted, beat a woman and he’s slapped on the wrist. The fact that Terrell Pryor was handed a five-game suspension for receiving free benefits in COLLEGE, while Rice will only see two games from the sideline is a joke.

Thankfully I’m not alone in my sentiments. Twitter opened up the flood gates on Thursday, blasting Goodell and the NFL.

Just because Rice won’t be playing in the season’s opening games, doesn’t mean you can’t see he rest of the Ravens play!  For fans looking to visit from across the country, you can find cheap Baltimore hotels available from Hipmunk all throughout the fall, including during the opening weeks of the season!
