Baltimore Ravens Terminate Ray Rice‘s Contract
You might say justice is served since the Baltimore Ravens Terminate Ray Rice’s Contract on Monday and suspended indefinitely by the NFL after a video was released!
Say goodbye to Ray Rice Day Ray, because you’ve just been Terminated by the Baltimore Ravens.
We know Seth Rogen is probably doing back flips by the breaking news of Rice being FIRED, since he SLAMMED Ray calling him a “piece of garbage.”
After the tape was revealed earlier today, the NFL realized how bad this makes them look so the have taken action and have Terminate Ray Rice’s Contract. Since the were being questioned for the hand slap on Ray Rice after he knocked out his future wife back in February.
Many sources have felt that the NFL had dropped the ball on the domestic violence that took place in an Atlantic City elevator between Ray Rice and his now wife, Janay Palmer. At the time she was Rice’s fiancee.
CelebNMusic247.com has leanred that the Baltimore Ravens have literally cut Ray Rice’s contract and he has been suspended indefinitely by the NFL.
What we have also learned that the Ravens said earlier Monday that they never saw the new video and believed Ray Rice’s fabricated story that he was provoked in the elevator by Janay. That NEVER happened.
Hours later, they sent out a one-sentence release:
“The Baltimore Ravens terminated the contract of RB Ray Rice this afternoon.”
The NFL also took action, saying on Twitter that Commissioner “Roger Goodell has announced that based on new video evidence that became available today he has indefinitely suspended Ray Rice.”
Coach John Harbaugh was expected to talk Monday night after practice. The NFL suspended Rice for two games in July for domestic violence, a punishment at the time that received widespread criticism in different circles.
NFL spokesman Greg Aiello said Monday morning:
“We requested from law enforcement any and all information about the incident, including the video from inside the elevator,”
“That video was not made available to us and no one in our office has seen it until today.”
Rice began his suspension Sunday, when the Ravens opened their season with a 23-16 loss to the Cincinnati Bengals. He was scheduled to return after Thursday night’s game against Pittsburgh. According to the terms of his suspension, Rice could not be with the team and must work out alone.
Rice hasn’t spoken often to the media since his arrest, but on July 31 called his actions “inexcusable” and said this is “something I have to live with the rest of my life.”
“I know that’s not who I am as a man. That’s not who my mom raised me to be. If anybody knows me, they know I was raised by a single parent, and that was my mother. I let her down, I let my wife down, I let my daughter down. I let my wife’s parents down. I let the whole Baltimore community down. I let my teammates down. I let so many people down because of 30 seconds of my life that I know I can’t take back.”
Too bad he didn’t remember that when he was knocking out his now wife in the Atlantic City elevator which we previously reported on today.
Goodell has been scrutinized since his decision on the 2 game suspension, but now it seems that he has redeemed himself today cutting Ray Rice, the may who says the tattoos on his body tell a story.
Maybe he should get one of himself knocking his wive out and another in letters that spells out “Abusive Husband”? He may sound like a humble all around nice guy, but what he did in the elevator was uncalled for and his action are now justified. Sorry he had to be the example, but look at Ochocinco who head butted his wife Evelyn Lozada, he lost his career in football and had to join a team outside of the US.
Action always have a reaction and if our society continues to slap athletes, rappers and celebrities on the wrist when they majorly screw up like Ray Rice or Justin Bieber, then they NEED to be punished like a normal person.
Athletes, rappers and celebrities are just people who happen to have careers in front of the camera, but that doesn’t make them above the law. Hopefully Ray Rice will LEARN from this.
