Neither Ray Lewis nor Ray Rice will be on the cover of the next “Madden,” if you care about this sort of thing. Both players were eliminated in the Sweet Sixteen of the 64-player bracket to determine who will be on the cover of “Madden NFL 25,” which is the 25th anniversary edition of the popular pigskin video game franchise. Lewis, who retired after the Ravens won the Super Bowl in February, was knocked out of the “old school” bracket by former Detroit Lions back and fellow NFL legend Barry Sanders, who got 67 percent of the fan vote.

The Baltimore Ravens' Ray Rice joined a campaign to raise money for anti-bullying efforts, designing a T-shirt that encourages youth to be kind to each other. The purple T-shirt that reads "You can be a hero to someone just by being a friend," is part of CustomInk's bullying prevention efforts, and comes during the official National Bullying Awareness month. The Virginia-based company tapped singers, actors and other athletes to design T-shirts that spread messages against bullying.

We hereby call upon the editor of The Sun op-ed page to suspend Susan Reimer two weeks for violating the rules of rational thinking ( "Ray Rice decision appears to prompt new NFL policy," Aug. 17). She is worried that the NFL "seeks to punish not only behavior that affects play on the field but behavior not even found criminal under the law. " Her first example: "Bullying in the locker room, for example. " As a former sportswriter, Ms. Reimer should know that what happens in the locker room most definitely does affect play on the field, including when it leads a bullied player to quit the team.

This Ray Rice incident has been a debacle. NFL management denies seeing the film of Mr. Rice striking his now wife in the elevator. Yet receipt of the video was apparently confirmed by an NFL employee. It is interesting how the NFL and the Ravens violated a basic principle of workplace discipline. It's called double jeopardy. Double jeopardy occurs when an employee has been disciplined for an infraction and then a few months later the management decides the disciplinary action was not severe enough and enacts a more severe penalty.

People have different ideas about what to do with their Ray Rice jerseys in light of that horrific elevator video. (Were we all sort of hoping it was more accidental than deliberate and that's why actually seeing it is so much more powerful than just hearing about it?) But I love what this father did with his daughter's jersey, transforming Rice into "Be Nice … To girls. " "We were just trying to decide what to do with our kids' Ray Rice jerseys as we really didn't feel we wanted them to wear them anymore.

In his commentary, "Ray Rice is not a victim" (July 31), Jacob Simpson sets us women back to pre-women's suffrage era. I understand he is a pastor and advocate against domestic violence, that's great, and I'm sure everyone he assists is grateful for that; we need more people like him in this world. What we don't need, however, is to hear from men who claim to "care" about Ray Rice's wife because she was "a victim" of alleged domestic violence. The same men who say "you should never put your hands on a woman" are probably saying that because they feel "women" are too fragile, weak or incapable of expelling the same violent tendencies and/or actions that Mr. Rice is being accused of doing to his then-fiancee.

The Ravens on Thursday announced details of this weekend's Ray Rice jersey exchange, which will allow fans to turn in their No. 27 jerseys for another, following the former star running back's release last week. Rice was charged with aggravated assault stemming from a February incident with his then-fiancée, Janay Palmer, in which Rice knocked her unconscious in an Atlantic City, N.J. elevator. Rice was initially suspended for two games by the NFL, but he was released by the Ravens and suspended indefinitely by the league after TMZ posted footage of the incident last week.

Ravens running back Ray Rice, who has campaigned passionately against bullying, is throwing his weight behind a Maryland bill that would make cyber-bullying a minor crime. Rice alerted his online fan base Wednesday that he's supporting Baltimore County Del. Jon Cardin's proposal. While he won't be able to make Thursday's bill hearing in Annapolis, he has sent written testimony and he hopes his followers will show up in person. "I WOULD LIKE AS MANY PEOPLE AS POSSIBLE TO SHOW UP IN PERSON AND MAKE YOUR VOICE HEARD!"

Recently we have often been asked: What if your daughter had been in Janay Rice's shoes, wouldn't you demand stern justice? As the mother of a daughter, the answer is that of course I would. However, I am also the mother of a son. Why don't we hear the question: What if your son had been in Ray Rice's shoes? If my son had been in that position, I would demand stern justice as well. However, I would demand justice to be rational and consider that - by all accounts - there had been no pattern of abuse and that, also certainly relevant, there had been a long-time and consistent pattern of exemplary community service and outreach by Mr. Rice.

America, it's time to call it quits on the witch hunts. As my husband wrote on Facebook recently, more people have spent way more time hating Ray Rice than they have spent hating the ISIS folks who beheaded two innocent American sons ( "NFL investigation into Ray Rice video raises more questions ," Sept. 11). If it weren't for an elevator camera, no one would know about this particular bit of human ugliness between Ray and his wife. I can tell you right now that I thank heaven for the lack of elevator cameras in some of my moments in life.
