The Ravens released a statement Sunday night from owner Steve Bisciotti on the death of former Baltimore Colts defensive lineman Art Donovan. “We lost a friend, one of the finest men and one of the greatest characters we were fortunate to meet in this community and in this business. “Baltimore is now without one of its best and someone who was a foundation for the tremendous popularity of football in our area. The world is not as bright tonight because we lost someone who could make us all smile.”

What a joke! Steve Bisciotti and Roger Goodell are making a big deal of not seeing the second video of Ray Rice punching his fiancée in the elevator of the Revel Casino ( "On the defense," Sept. 23). Did they not read the police report saying that Mr. Rice struck his fiancée in the face and rendered her unconscious? Does anyone need to see a video after reading that? Are they stupid? Unconscious? Or just interested in seeing the Ravens win games and make money for the team and the league?

Steve Bisciotti, I wish you could read the e-mails I'm getting this week from Ravens fans. Some are thoughtful and constructive. Some are angry enough to singe your corneas. And some make you want to scream "WHY DO YOU WATCH THIS TEAM IF IT MAKES YOU SO MISERABLE?!" Sure, I know that, as the Ravens owner, you hear plenty from the fans, too. I'm told you check out all the messages directed to you on the team's web site. And you probably get an earful from Ravens fans when you're down in College Park watching Terps basketball and hanging with your pal, Gary Williams.

Ravens owner Steve Bisciotti spent nearly 50 minutes in front of the media Monday afternoon, trying again to dispel the notion that the team has been less than forthcoming in its handling of the Ray Rice domestic violence scandal. This time, it was to specifically dispute a recent report that portrayed the Ravens as a team that knew more than it let on about the severity of Rice's attack on then-fiancee Janay Palmer and lobbied to limit the disciplinary action handed down by NFL commissioner Roger Goodell.

Offering an emphatic response to what he perceived as an attack on his organization's integrity, Ravens owner Steve Bisciotti on Monday rebutted a recent report saying that the organization engaged in a “pattern of misinformation and misdirection” following Ray Rice's arrest in February. In an unusual, nearly 50-minute news conference that brought the national media to the team's Owings Mills training facility, Bisciotti again acknowledged the organization's faults in how it handled the fallout of the former running back's assault on his then-fiancee, Janay Palmer, in an Atlantic City, N.J., casino elevator.

Ravens owner Steve Bisciotti better not be lying. He left himself open to be put in the same class as former Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling on Monday after a nearly 50-minute press conference in which he disputed a recently published report by ESPN challenging the integrity of his franchise. Bisciotti was what you want an owner to be in this situation. He was feisty, defiant, combative and apologetic at times, and repeated his denial of not having seen the second video of running back Ray Rice his wife in an elevator until seven months after the incident.

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.

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...

  You can only shake your head in wonderment at cable TV when an ESPN show host gets it wrong as to what's in an investigative report that his own channel just published. And worse, it's on one of the biggest stories in the history of professional sports. That happened with Bob Ley on ESPN yesterday as he reported the results of a probe by the channel's "Outside the Lines" team into the Ray Rice elevator attack on his then-fiancée and what is looking more each day like a cover-up on the part of the NFL and the Baltimore Ravens.

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.
