NFL: Six-Game Suspension for Any Domestic Violence Charge

NFL: Six-Game Suspension for Any Domestic Violence Charge

Christian Petersen/Getty Images(NEW YORK) — Any player that commits a domestic violence crime will be handed a six-game suspension for a first offense and a lifetime ban for a second offense, the NFL announced on Thursday.
NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell admitted that he did not get the suspension to Ravens running back Ray Rice correct, which led to the news.
“At times, however, and despite our best efforts, we fall short of our goals,” Goodell wrote in a letter. “We clearly did so in response to a recent incident of domestic violence….My disciplinary decision led the public to question our sincerity, our commitment, and whether we understood the toll that domestic violence inflicts on so many families. I take responsibility both for the decision and for ensuring that our actions in the future properly reflect our values.”
Rice was suspended for the first two games of the regular season after being arrested on a charge of aggravated assault after allegedly knocking out his fiancee in an elevator in Atlantic City, New Jersey.
Goodell and the NFL received much criticism for not coming down harder on a domestic violence case.
“Our personal conduct policy has long made clear that domestic violence and sexual assault are unacceptable. We clearly must do a better job of addressing these incidents in the NFL. And we will,” Goodell continued.

Ray Rice Breaks His Silence

Ray Rice Breaks His Silence

Rob Carr/Getty Images(OWINGS MILLS, Md.) — Baltimore Ravens running back Ray Rice addressed the media Thursday for the first time since his two-game suspension was announced by the NFL.
Rice spoke about the suspension and publicly apologized to his wife, Janay, for the first time since his alleged altercation with his then-fiancee in February.
“I made the biggest mistake of my life,” Rice said.
Rice, 27, would not get into what happened in the Atlantic City, New Jersey, elevator, but he also apologized to all women affected by domestic violence and expressed his intentions to become an “ambassador” against it.
“That night I replay over and over in my head. That’s not me. My actions were inexcusable. That’s something I have to live with the rest of my life,” he explained. “The pain I’m talking about living with is waking up every day, and my daughter is two years old now, and I have a little girl, who’s very smart, very intelligent, and one day she’s going to know the power of Google, and me having to explain that to her, what happened that night.”
Rice was joined at the press conference by nearly 30 of his Baltimore Ravens teammates. 
He will miss the team’s Sept. 7 regular-season opener against the Cincinnati Bengals and their Sept. 11 game against the Pittsburgh Steelers.
