CLEVELAND -- Before his final team meeting Saturday night was over, Ravens head coach John Harbaugh opened the floor to his players and asked them if they had any questions about the organization's handling of the Ray Rice situation. The response was silence. As the Ravens' organization continues to face heavy scrutiny for the way it responded to Rice's February assault of his then-fiancee in an Atlantic City, N.J., casino elevator, the players continue to say that it's not a distraction on the field.

Ravens coach John Harbaugh was asked after the team's 23-21 win over the Cleveland Browns whether a recent report that he wanted to release former running back Ray Rice shortly after his Feburary domestic violence arrest was true. Harbaugh initially didn't answer, calling it a "football day," and said he would address it Monday. Then he elaborated, and defended how the team handled the situation. Here is his full comment on the ESPN report: "This is a football day, Jeff.

In his appearance this morning on ESPN 's NFL Countdown, former linebacker Ray Lewis defended Ravens owner Steve Bisciotti and general manager Ozzie Newsome, but he added that the organization probably would like a do-over in its handling of the Ray Rice fallout. "I've known Ozzie Newsome now over 19 years over my career. That's half of my life. I've known Steve Bisciotti over 15 years of my life. And each one of those men, bottom line, has never lied to me once," an emotional Lewis said.

Several U.S. senators have proposed stripping the NFL of its tax-exempt status — a warning analysts say the image-damaged league can't afford to ignore even if the threat proves hollow. Just as it did during Major League Baseball's steroid scandal nearly a decade ago, Congress is using its bully pulpit — and threatening legislation — to prod change on another of the nation's pastimes. Lawmakers introduced bills last week threatening to revoke the league's tax exemption for two different reasons.

The thousands of Ravens fans who lined up along the lower concourse at M&T Bank Stadium the past two days came to exchange their Ray Rice jerseys, but what they got, in a sense, was a face-to-face apology from a team that still has some explaining to do. Which should remind us of an old saying that seems particularly apropos at this embarrassing moment in the history of what had been a model sports franchise: Every 24 hours, the world turns over...

At the beginning of what would become another tumultuous week, Ravens coach John Harbaugh made an observation about the Ray Rice fallout that will never sound as prescient as it does now. "We're probably not going to get away from it, and probably rightly so," Harbaugh said Monday. As the Ravens prepared for Sunday's game against the Cleveland Browns, their organization remained under significant scrutiny for what it did and didn't do in its handling of the Rice situation. The Ravens terminated the contract of the Pro Bowl running back on Sept.

Recent events in the news have called attention to domestic violence, particularly in association with the NFL. Ray Rice is at the forefront, but Adrian Peterson has also been charged with child abuse. In the past other star athletes have been charged with sexual abuse or even murder. As a nation we are outraged by the NFL's handling of all these events past and present. Sitting in front of our TVs waiting to see how the NFL and its executives will be punished enthralls us. But how many of us have watched what is unfolding on TV and gotten up to do something to help others who are experiencing violence in their lives, domestic or otherwise?

Where are the men and women who have committed heinous acts but have surmounted obstacles and turned their lives around? They must be out there and could tell their stories. Michael Vick, where are you? Although I do not condone domestic violence, Ray and Janay Rice were and are working hard to create a new life and still deserve that chance. Jacquelyn L.

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.

In response to Scott Green's letter, "The Ravens got it wrong" (Sept. 13), it seems unfair to criticize Ravens owner Steve Bisciotti for not supporting Ray and Janay Rice after the violent video came to light. Mr. Bisciotti is considered an influential business leader in the community. His decision was forced by his viewing of and by public release of the violent video. One can argue that the Ravens could and should have done more to obtain the tape sooner, but that doesn't change the fact that Ray Rice and only Ray Rice threw that violent punch.
