Most Maryland voters agree that the Ravens were right to fire Ravens running back Ray Rice, but a higher percentage of women than men thought the team's punishment was too severe, according to a new poll for The Baltimore Sun. Fifty-nine percent of men said they supported the team's decision to terminate Rice's contract, while 52 percent of women agreed with the punishment for punching his then-fiancee in an elevator of an Atlantic City casino....

The NFL announced Thursday that former United States District Judge Barbara S. Jones has been appointed by the league to hear and decide the suspension appeal filed by the NFL Players Association on behalf of Ray Rice. “We are grateful to Judge Jones for taking on this role,” said league commissioner Roger Goodell, who suspended the former Ravens running back indefinitely after video came out Sept. 8 of Rice assaulting his then-fiancee. “She will have our full cooperation as she hears and decides this appeal.” Goodell was asked by the players' union to recuse himself from the hearing because he'll likely be a witness in the case.

Wasn't exactly a stretch of the imagination to predict Rickey Henderson and Jim Rice would make it into the Hall of Fame. Rickey was a no-brainer, and Rice's status as a borderline candidate probably had something to do with his horrible relationship with the baseball media.

Ray Rice broke the 11th commandment which states, "Thou shalt not assault the female gender" ( "Ray Rice video: This is what domestic violence looks like," Sept. 8). Any adult male worth his salt knows that and unfailingly abides by it. Then there's "The Enabler," NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell. Don't let the Brooks Brothers and smartly starched shirts fool you. He still has some of his tentacles wrapped around the web of the good ol' boy network. The NFL's history of downplaying anything remotely close to domestic violence has to be terminated, and Commissioner Goodell must go. As for Mr. Rice, the dark clouds have reappeared and do not seem to be going away any time soon.

What a breath of fresh air was the letter from Rachel McClellan ( "I'm keeping my Ray Rice jersey," Sept. 24). I don't own a Rice jersey. If I did, I would not only keep it, I would wear it in public. It is always amazing to me how the self-righteous among us can act as if they have the right to "cast the first stone. " To be sure, domestic violence is wrong. In my opinion, all violence is wrong. However, there are always two sides to every incident no matter how egregious it appears.

On what planet do Roger Goodell and Steve Bisciotti live ( "Ravens owner Steve Bisciotti writes in letter, 'we let you down' in handling Rice incident," Sept. 9)? The first video showed Mr. Rice dragging his fiancée out of the elevator unconscious. She was on the floor. If he wasn't responsible for her being in that condition, don't you think he would have been carrying her in his arms? Obviously, she had been beaten. That seemed to be the given at the time. If they didn't think he had beaten her, why did they punish him in the first place?

Peter Ginsberg, the attorney for ex-Ravens running back Ray Rice, praised former U.S. District Court Judge Barbara S. Jones, the hearing officer for Rice's appeal of an indefinite NFL suspension. Jones was appointed Thursday by NFL commissioner Roger Goodell in consultation with NFL Players Association executive director DeMaurice Smith to hear the appeal of Rice. Rice's two-game suspension was increased to an indefinite ban on Sept. 8 after a video surfaced of him punching his then-fiancee in a casino elevator.

Regarding yet another article in your paper about the Ray Rice incident, The Sun is like a dog with a bone - it just won't give it up ( "Looking for silver lining in the ugliness of the Rice case," Sept. 27). Does anyone remember that the victim of this violence married the perpetrator? Must the NFL and the Ravens take all of the blame? How about a mention that our daughters should be taught not to slap men or anyone else? Confrontation can cause violence. Not that the punch was deserved.

The letter from Dawn DiBattista regarding the shameful flip-flop of the NFL and the Ravens in their treatment of Ray Rice expresses a well-reasoned point of view that has been largely suppressed by the vitriol of the do-gooders who would impose their one-size-fits-all solution to the domestic violence problem we face in our society ( "Ravens have fumbled badly," Sept. 26). Congratulations, Ms. DiBattista, for expressing so well the notion that individual circumstances should not be ignored when punishing individuals who have violated the law. How we mete out punishment says much about us as a society.

If you are wondering how fallout from the Ray Rice elevator attack might affect the Ravens image, check out this "Saturday Night Live" skit depicting the team as criminals. The Carolina Panthers, the team the Ravens play Sunday, was satirized in the same way last night, as well as the NFL and CBS Sports Jim Nantz and Phil Simms for their handling of the scandal. It's disingenuous for SNL to be mocking CBS and not its own NBC Sports, which has the biggest NFL show on TV in "Sunday Night Football.

The most talked-about Ravens player Wednesday wasn't talking at all. Ray Rice wasn't made available during the team's open locker room session before practice and therefore didn't shed any light on whether his bruised right knee will sideline him for the team's showdown with the AFC North-leading Pittsburgh Steelers at Heinz Field on Sunday. But the man who could fill the void if Rice sits out said he anticipates that Rice will play Sunday. "Ray's a competitor, so I doubt he's going to sit this game out," Willis McGahee said.

Even as we continued to dissect the National Football League's mishandling of the Ray Rice case and millionaires associated with the matter apologized (again) for being obtuse to domestic violence, the conversation seemed to turn toward a silver lining. To wit: Maybe good will come of this ugliness. The NFL's inadequate reaction to Rice's assault unleashed strong public backlash, heightened awareness of the everyday reality of intimate-partner abuse and forced the league and the Baltimore Ravens to make big-time amends, including a six-figure donation to the House of Ruth Maryland.

The NFL sent a memo to every owner and team president today denying a report that it had received a video in April of former Ravens running back Ray Rice punching his then-fiancee inside a casino elevator. The Associated Press report Thursday night said a video of the February incident was sent by an anonymous law enforcement official to NFL security chief Jeffrey Miller. Rice's $35 million contract was terminated by the Ravens when a video of the punch surfaced on TMZ on Sept. 8. The NFL issued the following denial to owners and team presidents in this memo obtained by The Baltimore Sun: "Our office has found absolutely no evidence to support the claim of the anonymous 'law enforcement source' that he sent a video to the NFL office or that he received a telephone call to his 'disposable cell phone' from an unidentified female using an NFL line.
