Ravens running back Ray Rice moved closer to putting his legal woes behind him when he was accepted into a diversionary program that could help to clear his record of charges stemming from a physical altercation with his then-fiancee in a New Jersey casino. Ravens president Dick Cass , one of many team officials who have supported Rice since the incident in February, said Tuesday's news was positive, but acknowledged that there are several steps the running back still has to take.    “I think what Ray wants to do is talk to the media about the incident, and I think he will do that in the near future,” Cass said following Wednesday's news conference at the team's downtown stadium in which the Ravens announced a 10-year, $60 million extension of their partnership with M&T Bank . “He's got some limits on how much he can talk about, but I think he wants to address the media.

According to The Sun's Jeff Zrebiec , Ozzie Newsome claims that Ray Rice did not lie to him about the incident in which Mr. Rice struck his then-fiancée, Janay Palmer ("Highlights from interview with Ravens owner Steve Bisciotti, president Dick Cass and GM Ozzie Newsome," Sept. 11). Most would assume that means Mr. Rice did not minimize or represent what happened. Dick Cass, team president, states that he was told Mr. Rice slapped his fiancée and she hit her head. The video certainly proves that version to be wrong.

Offering an emphatic response to what he perceived as an attack on his organization's integrity, Ravens owner Steve Bisciotti on Monday rebutted a recent report saying that the organization engaged in a “pattern of misinformation and misdirection” following Ray Rice's arrest in February. In an unusual, nearly 50-minute news conference that brought the national media to the team's Owings Mills training facility, Bisciotti again acknowledged the organization's faults in how it handled the fallout of the former running back's assault on his then-fiancee, Janay Palmer, in an Atlantic City, N.J., casino elevator.

Ravens owner Steve Bisciotti better not be lying. He left himself open to be put in the same class as former Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling on Monday after a nearly 50-minute press conference in which he disputed a recently published report by ESPN challenging the integrity of his franchise. Bisciotti was what you want an owner to be in this situation. He was feisty, defiant, combative and apologetic at times, and repeated his denial of not having seen the second video of running back Ray Rice his wife in an elevator until seven months after the incident.

League commissioner  Roger Goodell  notified the  NFL Players Association  on Friday that former  Ravens  running back  Ray Rice  was suspended indefinitely because his version of his February altercation with his then-fiancee was "starkly different" than the one shown on the video that surfaced earlier in the week. Rice and Janay Palmer met with Goodell on June 16 at the league's New York headquarters. "This video shows a starkly different sequence of events from what you and your representatives stated when we met on June 16, and is important new information that warrants reconsideration of the discipline imposed on you in July,” Goodell wrote in the letter, according to  ESPN . “Based on this new information, I have concluded that the discipline imposed upon you in July was insufficient under all the circumstances and have determined instead to impose an indefinite suspension.

Sixteen female senators have sent a letter to NFL commissioner Roger Goodell requesting that the NFL adopt a zero-tolerance policy against domestic violence. Goodell recently instituted a policy with a six-game suspension for first-time domestic violence offenders and a lifetime ban with the possibility of reinstatement after a year for second offenses. The letter to Goodell, also sent to The Baltimore Sun, follows former Ravens running back Ray Rice being indefinitely suspended for his domestic violence incident, for which he was charged with felony aggravated assault.

Would they move the game to another location? Would they move it to later in the season? On Thursday, Sept. 11, the NFL moved the game to Monday night.

The Ravens and the NFL now have an integrity issue. The latest video showing Ravens running back Ray Rice knocking out his then-fiancee Janay Palmer in an Atlantic City casino elevator was released this morning and it raises a lot of questions about how the league could only suspend him for two games and why the team didn't do more. An NFL spokesman said that the league office had not seen the latest video until Monday morning. But I believe both the Ravens and NFL commissioner saw this video of Rice.
