Baltimore Ravens running back Ray Rice has been suspended for the first two games of this season for violating the NFL’s personal conduct policy following his offseason arrest for domestic violence.
The suspension,stems from Rice’s altercation with then-fiancée Janay Palmer at an Atlantic City hotel in February.
Rice also was fined an additional regular-season game check but is eligible to participate in training camp and all of Baltimore’s preseason games, the NFL announced.
“It is disappointing that I will not be with my teammates for the first two games of the season, but that’s my fault,” Rice said in a statement released by the Ravens. “As I said earlier, I failed in many ways. But, Janay and I have learned from this. We have become better as a couple and as parents. I am better because of everything we have experienced since that night. The counseling has helped tremendously.
“My goal is to earn back the trust of the people, especially the children, I let down because of this incident,” Rice said. “I am a role model and I take that responsibility seriously. My actions going forward will show that.”-Ray Rice
So we all see the NFL isn’t taking this situation lightly which is a good thing as Ray Rice said he has little kids that look up to him and they need to see that this kinda actions are not okay at all.
