Whoever gave or sold the security camera footage of Ray Rice and the then-Janay Palmer to the website TMZ must have known it was them. Did they plan to take down a professional football player ( "Ravens, NFL say they tried to obtain video of Rice assault," Sept. 9)? No questions have ever been raised about this individual nor has that aspect of the case been investigated. While everyone is so upset about the Ray Rice incident, we should be more concerned about what touched it off. Booze and money flow very freely at any casino, and with that mixture problems invariably arise.

The violent attack on Janay Palmer by Ray Rice was deplorable and shocking, and he deserves the price he is paying for his actions. Janay is the victim, and she deserves our sympathy and prayers. She does not deserve the pain and humiliation cast upon her by the public spectacle of turning in anything that says Rice for other NFL merchandise, jewelry store credit and even food ( "Remember the victim," Sept. 10). Cut up your Ray Rice football jersey and use it for cleaning cloths.

It's time to stop burning Ray Rice jerseys, take a deep breath and think this through ( "Ravens to offer jersey exchange for Ray Rice jerseys at stadium stores," Sept. 9). Does the Rice family really deserve all this? In my opinion, no, they do not. What Mr. Rice did is reprehensible, no question. However, the New Jersey legal system reviewed all evidence, upgraded the charge against Mr. Rice from simple assault to aggravated assault and allowed him to plea bargain the case and dropped the simple assault charge against Janay Palmer.

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.

Ravens fans showed support for running back Ray Rice when he took the field for Monday night's open workout at M&T Bank Stadium, but they seemed to recognize that an outsized ovation would not be appropriate in the wake of the domestic assault incident that led to a two-game NFL suspension. Rice got applause from segments of the crowd as he moved past several sections of the stands after entering the playing field, then got a bigger, general ovation when he was shown for the first time on the video board.

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.

It's been almost two weeks since the elevator footage of former Ravens running back Ray Rice blew up the Internet. And I can't stop thinking about it. There are many reasons why the Rices' domestic-abuse video troubles me, but selfishly, I'll admit that the entire thing makes me think most about my own children. My husband and I have two boys, twins. We also have a daughter. So I've taken note of the reactions both to Rice's stunning brutality, to his then-fiancee's you-and-me-against-the-world response and to the legions of people on Twitter explaining why they stayed with their abusers (#WhyIStayed)

  Ravens running back Ray Rice has been accepted into a diversionary program that could allow him to clear his record of charges that he knocked his then-fiancee unconscious in a New Jersey casino, but he could still face discipline from the NFL.   Rice, 27, earlier this month pleaded not guilty to one count of third-degree aggravated assault and instead sought entry into a pre-trial intervention program for first-time offenders....
