NFL Player Suspended. Does The Punishment Fit The Crime

Posted Thursday, July 24th 2014 @ 12pm  by WOOD RADIO NEWS ROOM

There are many things a pro football player can do to get himself suspended by the NFL

The NFL is suspending Baltimore Ravens running back Ray Rice two games under the personal conduct policy for an altercation that left his girlfriend -- now wife --unconscious in an Atlantic City casino elevator.

USA Today reports Rice will miss games against two AFC North rivals, the Cincinnati Bengals and Pittsburgh Steelers, before he's eligible to be reinstated Sept. 12. He'll lose two game checks worth $470,588. He'll also be fined an additional $58,000, according to ESPN, which first reported the suspension.

Big Drew from WOOD Radio's sister station ESPN 96-1 has a rather strongly worded opinion piece on the NFL's decision. CHECK IT OUT HERE.
