While Stan Ber is correct that Ray Rice only has been indicted, not convicted for the offense of domestic violence, I am puzzled why he hopes that Rice avoids prison time. In recent months, athletes, entertainers, military personnel, and the heir to the DuPont fortune, have received slaps on the wrist for violence against women. (Just today, Minnesota Timberwolves player, Dante Cunningham was accused of choking hs girlfriend).  If Rice is convicted but avoids prison, most Ravens fans will cheer for him, ignoring his offense.  While athletes and entertainers should not be punished solely because of their status, neither should they be given preferential treatment by the courts compared to non-celebrities convicted of similar crimes.

Ray Rice is showing off his chess skills in a new online ad campaign. The increasingly marketable Ravens running back has been unveiled this week as not only the newest pitchman for Xenith football helmets, but the face of the company's player safety campaign. As part of the arrangement, Rice stars in the Massachusetts-based company's online ad to introduce the "enlightened warrior. " The minute-long online commercial for the safety campaign has a chess theme. It opens with Rice explaining how he's been playing the board game since he was 9 years old. He says: "Chess helps me stay focused.

It would be easy to blast Ray Rice ( "Ray Rice indicted on aggravated assault charge in New Jersey," March 27). What kind of character would do what he is accused of doing? He has been charged in the assault of a female. Knocked her out, people say. But let's look at what we know so far. On one side we have a 50-second video of the Ravens running back dragging his unconscious fiancee out of an elevator. Neither he nor Janay Palmer wish to press charges. They are in counseling, the responding officer signed a single assault complaint against them both and both refused any medical attention as no injuries were reported.

While Ray Rice continued to bask in the glow of his 29-yard, catch-and-run on fourth-and-29 against the San Diego Chargers, quarterback Joe Flacco admitted that he didn't do any reflecting on the play and he didn't plan to. “We got away with one and I'll be glad. I could have looked like a big-time idiot if we don't get that play,” Flacco said. “I kind of went out on a limb there to check the ball down on fourth-and-29. We don't get that, everybody is crushing me: 'What the hell is he doing checking the ball down on fourth-and-29?

The status of the contract negotiations between the Ravens and Ray Rice will loom over the offseason and that will remain true whether the Pro Bowl running back shows up at organized team activities later this month or opts to stay home until a deal is done. Rice told reporters Tuesdayin New York at Nike's official uniform unveiling, he still hasn't decided what he is going to do as he waits to see if negotiations with the Ravens result in a long-term contract extension or him playing the 2012 season under the franchise tag. “Me and my agent (Todd France)

I find it difficult to understand how those who laud Ray Rice's character can defend what happened in Atlantic City ( "Ravens' Rice knocked fiancee unconscious, police say," Feb. 20). Mr. Rice's actions define his character. Even if his fiancée was having a medical problem, you don't leave her lying in a hallway without rendering assistance or at least showing some concern. This lady was not a side of beef but the mother of Mr. Rice's child. I'd be very curious to see what Ravens coach John Harbaugh's logic would be if it were his daughter being pulled unconscious from an elevator by her fiancé as if this were a common occurrence.

On occasion, Ray Rice likes to exchange sweaty jerseys with opposing players that he admires, and he already knows which Cleveland Browns player will be in his crosshairs after the final whistle blows Sunday afternoon. Rice plans to seek out rookie running back Trent Richardson, who looked up to Rice and other backs while weaving his way to the NFL. But the respect is mutual, as Rice has been a “huge fan” of Richardson, the third pick in April's NFL draft, since watching Richardson run over and around defenders while he was at Alabama.

Ravens coach John Harbaugh briefly spoke to reporters at the team facility Tuesday, reiterating several things that he said at last week's NFL owners meetings. The team is still active on the free-agent market and remains in talks with the representatives of free-agent tight ends Ed Dickson and Owen Daniels. Harbaugh acknowledged that cornerback Corey Graham, who signed last month with the Buffalo Bills, was a significant loss, and while he has confidence in Chykie Brown and Asa Jackson, the Ravens are also looking to add another cornerback.

With a lot of local attention over the weekend focused on running back Ray Rice's recent indictment on a charge of aggravated assault and Opening Day for the Orioles, some big news went unnoticed. The Ravens didn't sign running back LeGarrette Blount - and the Pittsburgh Steelers did. The two-year deal, which is reportedly worth $3.85 million, leaves the Ravens with a big hole and also means they'll have to face a new two-headed monster in Pittsburgh with Blount and Le'Veon Bell.

From a football standpoint, I don't think the upgraded charge on running back  Ray Rice  changes things too much. The Ravens planned on adding at least one running back before Rice's legal issues began and once they did, they were prepared for the possibility that even when the situation gets resolved, Rice would likely be facing some sort of NFL suspension. However, with all that being said, they better get moving unless they are just resigned to drafting a back in the middle to late rounds.

Ravens running back Ray Rice has been charged with aggravated assault in the February incident in which he is accused of knocking his fiancee unconscious in an Atlantic City casino elevator, a more serious charge than he originally faced. Rice, 27, initially faced a charge of simple assault for striking Janay Palmer in the Revel Casino, an incident that authorities say was caught on tape. Prosecutors in Atlantic County, N.J., reviewed the case for several weeks before presenting it to a grand jury, which handed up the indictment, officials said.

Just as owner  Steve Bisciotti  had done a day earlier, Ravens coach  John Harbaugh   stood firmly behind  Ray Rice  on Tuesday, saying that the running back “will be part of our team” in 2014. Harbaugh, however, did express disappointment that three of his players - Rice, wide receiver  Deonte Thompson  and offensive guard/tackle  Jah Reid   - were arrested in a 22-day span, calling their actions “unacceptable ... and disappointing.”   “You also separate the person from the activity and redemption is something we think is important as well,” Harbaugh said Tuesday morning at the NFL owners meetings at the  Ritz-Carlton  Orlando Grande Lakes resort.

ORLANDO -- Ravens owner Steve Bisciotti called Ray Rice's arrest last month "embarrassing and disappointing," but he vowed to stick by the three-time Pro Bowl running back. "Ray will be here," Bisciotti said in an interview with The Baltimore Sun at the owners meetings. " This is a singular moment six years after we drafted him. It's embarrassing for him and his fiancée. It is especially hard to see somebody that is proud of his reputation have to take this kind of public relations hit. " Rice, who has been one of the most active Ravens in the community since they drafted him in 2008, was arrested and charged with simple assault on Feb. 15 following an altercation with his fiancée.
