I am so angry right now, I should get a two-game suspension. The National Football League and the Baltimore Ravens have sacrificed running back Ray Rice on the altar of their public image. His firing was cynical and expedient and has absolutely nothing to do with domestic abuse. As soon as video from inside the casino elevator was made public - confirming what we already knew from the police report, that Rice hit his then-fiancee hard enough to knock her unconscious - the team terminated his contract.

It seems to me that the NFL and the Baltimore Ravens' staff are severely lacking in management skills ( "Ravens executives address Ray Rice investigation in exclusive interview," Sept. 10). I believe that most people feel that consistency is the key to good management. You can be a micro-manager or laissez-faire one as either can be a great manager but if your employees do not know what to expect whether it be to go hard one day and easy the next, one is judged as having poor management skills.

The Baltimore Ravens said Tuesday that the team gave up its investigation into the Ray Rice assault incident after just a few weeks, while the National Football League explained its own fruitless efforts to obtain the surveillance video of the player punching his then-fiancee. Both organizations faced mounting criticism after release of the video by celebrity news website TMZ prompted both to impose stiffer penalties against Rice on Monday. The 27-year-old running back was set to rejoin the team following a two-game suspension, but was instead cut from the roster and suspended indefinitely from the league.

White House Chief of Staff Denis McDonough said Sunday that President Obama was "shocked" by the video of Baltimore Ravens running back Ray Rice hitting his then fiancee and a Democratic senator called the National Football League's handling of the situation "outrageous. " Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand of New York, who has become an advocate on the issue of sexual harassment in the military -- as well as sexism in Congress -- said that the Ravens and the league should have taken faster action in dealing with Rice.

RAY LEWIS - Baltimore Ravens linebacker to Charm City's television stations, but "former murder suspect" to Atlanta's - stood in front of cameras and microphones Friday afternoon to let the world know he's an angry man. "Yes, I'm angry at [Fulton County] District Attorney Paul Howard," Lewis said at the news conference at the Ravens' Owings Mills training complex. "Because from Day One, I tried to speak to him and tell him that I was an innocent man." Lewis didn't say so explicitly, but he implied that he would have stood a better chance of getting a dead dog to roll over than of getting Howard to see reason.

If you're a book-lover and football-lover (there really are a few of us out there), you've gotta love Stevie Baggs of the Baltimore Ravens. The Bethune-Cookman University grad is nicknamed "Shakespeare," because he's known for making plays. For the uninitiated, that means he does some eye-opening work on the field. A little bit of football humor, but not bad for a sport known more for head-banging than than for the bon mot. It's fitting that Baggs plays for the Ravens, which has its own rich literary heritage.

For the second week in a row, Baltimore got some prime-time, Sunday-night love on high-end cable TV. Two weeks ago, Lutherville got a mention on "Mad Men. " Granted, it was a throwaway line, but a mention is a mention in self-conscious Baltimore -- and its north county cousins. This Sunday, Baltimore Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco and running back Ray Rice got the shoutout on HBO's "VEEP," which is made in Maryland. The mention came when Vice President Selina Meyer (Julia Louis-Dreyfus)

Rapper, producer and actor Dr. Dre knows who he likes in the Super Bowl: Ravens to take it all. He tells TMZ that he's with the team that has Ray Lewis on it. "It's a good looking Super Bowl, isn't it?" a TMZ reporter asks Dr. Dre. "Absolutely," Dr. Dre says. "I'm excited for Ray Lewis, man," he continues. "He's a good guy and I'm a fan of his. I'm wishing the best for him. " Not a bad endorsement from a California guy, who -- at least logistically speaking -- would seem inclined to go with San Francisco.

The National Football League and the Baltimore Ravens have played the fans for fools ( "Reckless and callous," Sept. 9). Did anyone ever asked how Janay Palmer ended up knocked out on the floor? Are they trying to have us believe they never knew of this tape? Once again it's the high and powerful playing the general public for fools.

NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell and the Baltimore Ravens have been taking a great deal of heat for their lenient treatment of running back Ray Rice for punching his then fiancée (now wife) in February 2014. Now, with the video of the actual assault circulating on the Internet, the heat has intensified, with the Ravens releasing him from the team, even though the facts of the case, already known to the Ravens and the NFL, have not changed. Ray Rice is seen in the video knocking Janay Palmer unconscious in an Atlantic City elevator and then dragging her lifeless body into the hall, where he eventually props her against a wall.

The Maryland Food Bank will be joined over the next month by the State Police and the Baltimore Ravens for a communitywide drive to collect food and raise awareness for local families that risk going hungry. The food bank reports that nearly 780,000 Marylanders experience so-called "food insecurity," meaning they don't know if they'll be able to access food for nutritious diet. Other partners joining in the effort - which includes food banks across the country for Hunger Action Month - are the state Department of Transportation, Charm City Run and Giant Food.

Baltimore Sun staff members weigh in on the Ravens' decision to fire offensive coordinator Cam Cameron and replace him with Jim Caldwell. Jeff Zrebiec, Ravens reporter: As much heat as Cameron has gotten over the past couple of years, today's news is still surprising. The Ravens don't usually make drastic moves like this especially at this stage of the season. But it's clear that the frustration by the team's key offensive players was mounting. Ray Rice was furious after Sunday's loss to the Washington Redskins.

I found it very interesting that in an edition of your newspaper reporting the NFL's very strong domestic violence policy and the Baltimore Ravens' very generous contribution to the House of Ruth in support of victims of domestic violence, the comics reveal a different point of view. In the comic strip, "The Middletons," the husband makes a less than sensitive comment about his wife and her response is violence! It is not OK for a person (male or female) to hit another person over words or other non-life threatening events.
