Whoopi: 'If you hit a man, don't be surprised if he hits back'

Growing up, I was always taught that no matter how angry someone got, violence was not an acceptable solution. Beyond that, as a young lady, I was also told that you should never raise your hand to a man because they may not have been brought up the same set of values. Which brings us again to the discussion of Baltimore Ravens RB Ray Rice, and the incident involving his wife Janay...

Oh Look, Fans Cheered Ray Rice At Training Camp, Then The Ravens Shared The Video

It’s pretty amazing how poorly the Ravens have continued to publicly handle Ray Rice’s domestic assault against his then-fiancee during a night out in an Atlantic City casino back in Feburary. Earlier this summer, they held an awful press conference to address the incident and accompanied it with some of the worst social media handling you’ll ever witness. Then, the team...

NFL's attempt to explain Rice suspension less than convincing

The National Football League has some of the highest-paid public relations personnel in the United States. This is one of the primary reasons that it has been able to skirt some major issues in the past as it relates to how the public perceives the league.  Unfortunately for the league, the two-game suspension Ray Rice received for assaulting his now wife Janay Palmer earlier this...

Ray Rice Cheered Loudly at Ravens Practice

It isn’t my job to tell you how to feel about Ray Rice, but at some point we are just talking in circles. If you never want to support Ray Rice again and will only see him as a wife beater that is fine. If you want to forgive him and believe it was just an isolated incident that is also fine. Rice is going to be cheered, booed and heckled. Try to respect people’s opinion on...

NFL dropped the ball on Ray Rice punishment

Baltimore Ravens all-pro running back Ray Rice will not be spending any time in jail for aggravated assault on his then fiancée Jaynay Palmer. Allowed by the court to enter a plea of not guilty and apply for a program for first-time offenders, it may clear him of charges in as few as six months. Not a bad deal, considering he knocked her out cold and was caught on tape dragging...

Ray Rice doesn’t appeal suspension, fine

There are plenty of people who felt that the league did not impose the proper discipline on Ravens running back Ray Rice last week when they suspended him for two games and fined him an additional game check from the 2013 season in response to Rice’s February arrest for assaulting his wife and subsequent entry into a pre-trial diversion program. The reaction of those people, most...

Will Hill “looks like a linebacker, moves like a safety”; “a true star in the making”

When the Ravens signed former Giants safety Will HIll, there were some eyebrows raised. Given the timing of the announcement, and the Ravens facing so much public scrutiny due to their players’ transgressions, it seemed questionable that the team would sign a player who is already slated to miss the first six games of the season. But, perhaps the above information only further...

Ray Rice, The Sandlot, and Misogyny

  We’d like to thank our guest writer, Melissa Ganginis, for the following article:   I love the 1993 classic, “The Sandlot.” You love fantasy football value.

Ravens enter full-contact stage of 2014 TC with optimism and relief…

The relief for Ravens fans is nobody got beat up too badly in the first full-contact practice sessions. The optimism is about how Joe Flacco seems to have grasped the new offensive system installed by OC Gary Kubiak. Another point of optimism— Ricky Wagner has looked pretty good so far at right tackle—and he’s been going up against Elvis Dumervil, arguably still one of the...

Baltimore Ravens: Why to watch Terrence Brooks during training camp

The Baltimore Ravens selected Terrence Brooks from Florida State as a third-round pick in the 2014 draft. They also grabbed former St. Louis Ram Darian Stewart, so Brooks will have to stand out as a star rookie in order to clutch the free safety job. Matt Elam started 15 games as a free safety last year, but he might move to strong safety. The Ravens recently signed free agent Will...
