Disgraced Baltimore Ravens running back Ray Rice and the NFL Players Association plan to appeal his NFL suspension Tuesday.
Rice, 27, was suspended indefinitely by NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell after new video footage was released showing Rice callously knocking out his now-wife, Janay Rice, in a casino elevator in mid-February.
Minnesota Vikings star running back Adrian Peterson was “deactivated” (read: suspended) after he was indicted for viciously beating his 4-year-son with a switch. Peterson’s weak excuse was that he disciplined his son in the manner which he was raised.
The sad irony is Peterson’s secret Love child was beaten to death in October by his mother’s boyfriend.
Joseph Patterson, 27, was arrested and charged in that case.
A quick thinking paparazzi apparently ordered flowers to be delivered to the Baltimore home of former NFL player Ray Rice on Tuesday. The photog snapped shots of the embattled couple as they answered the door to accept the flowers.
The exclusive photos were published in today’s NY Post.
Baltimore Ravens star Ray Rice is a running back without a football team. The Ravens terminated Rice’s contract today after gossip tabloid TMZ released new elevator footage showing Rice knocking out his then-fiancee, Janay Palmer.
Update: Gawker.com points out the Ravens just deleted a tweet that seemed to blame Janay Palmer for the “role that she played” in her knock down, drag out fight with unemployed former NFL player Ray Rice.
Shocking new video shows Baltimore Ravens star Ray Rice delivering the knock out punch to his then-fiancee Janay Rice in an Atlantic City elevator. The new video, published by gossip tabloid TMZ, shows the violence that occurred inside the elevator at Revel Casino on February 15.
Like Jay Z’s sister-in-law Solange Knowles, Ray Rice didn’t realize a camera was rolling when he got on the elevator.
No NFL player wants to be in Baltimore Ravens WR Jacoby Jones’ shoes today. It’s bad enough that he got cracked over the head with an expensive bottle of champagne. But when the attacker wielding the bottle is a petite stripper named Sweet Pea, the locker room becomes a very hostile environment to be in.
According to gossip blog TMZ.com, the incident took place on board a DC party bus where other players were celebrating Brian McKinnie’s 34th birthday. The players were entertained by a motley crew of aging, out-of-shape strippers, including Sweet Pea.
TMZ says Sweet Pea hit Jones over the head with a gigantic Ace of Spades bottle. She claims TMZ is lying.
An emotional Eddie George remembers his friend Steve “Air” McNair. Too bad Eddie didn’t talk to his homie about shtting on his wife and kids for industry whores.
To those of you industry wives who think your man’s friends, associates, staff won’t protect your man’s other woman — think again. They will smile in your face and act like everything is all good. The bottom line for them is money, not loyalty to you.
