Super Bowl champion Ray Rice is going to have plenty of time to think about the now-infamous elevator attack on his then-fiancée Janay Palmer after being cut by the Baltimore Ravens.
Details of the Ravens’ decision surfaced online Monday (September 8) afternoon.
Ray Rice won’t get another chance with the Baltimore Ravens after all. He might not get a chance anywhere else in the NFL either. The Ravens announced they’ve terminated Rice’s contract Monday afternoon, hours after TMZ.com posted video of the embattled running back punching his then-fiancée during an altercation at an Atlantic City hotel in February.

This shocking video of Ray Rice attacking his wife is horrific…
The National Football League has suspended Rice indefinitely.
The NFL followed up by suspending Rice indefinitely, which would prevent another team from picking him up. Earlier in the day, the NFL said it had never seen the violent video before it suspended him for two games earlier this summer for domestic abuse. “We requested from law enforcement any and all information about the incident, including the video from inside the elevator,” the NFL said in a statement today. “The video was not made available to us and no one in our office has seen it until today.” (ABC News)

No one–no one–should think the Ravens are being "stand up guys" by releasing Ray Rice. What did they THINK would be on the video?

Watchin this @RayRice27 stuff and I say hitting a woman is not something a man should do. But I think that PEOPLE need 2 communicate better.

Putting Ray Rice's name in Twitter search to block the men and women defending his brutality. This may take a while.
