If you don’t know the story of Ray Rice he knocked his girlfriend out at a casino and then dragged her out of an elevator. You can watch the video here.
Today, Ray Rice hit the lottery. Not only will Ray avoid jail time by participating in a intervention program, but he will also not receive a suspension from the NFL.
This is absolutely absurd. How can a man KO and drag his girlfriend out of an elevator and literally receive no punishment for it? Meanwhile, Josh Gordon is facing a years suspension from the NFL failing another drug test.
Donald Sterling will most likely be kicked out of the NBA and lose his team for making racist remarks in his own home.
(He probably shouldn’t of asked Anderson Cooper if he has ever been with a girl and then called him a racist)
The bottom line is this. As sports become more and more engraved in our culture leagues are supposed to set examples. The NFL is saying you CAN knock out your girlfriend but you smoke a drug that is legal in two states and your out of here. Meanwhile every pro athlete and media outlet is calling for Sterling’s head because he is a man who grew up in a different era who said something stupid in his own home. Where is LeBron James saying he will not play professional sports next year if Ray Rice steps foot on the field? Where is Magic Johnson saying he will never attend another Baltimore Ravens game as long as Ray Rice is on the time. I cannot wrap my head around it. This logic is so backwards it is incredible.
