Michael Felder From Bleacher ReportFelder gives his opinion on this ray Rice issue. Felder says that he “thought it would be more, especially with the evidence that they have and Goodell’s hard stance on discipline.” Although eventually Baltimore will forgive Rice, he is doing everything else right including staying out of the media, going to counseling and making public statements with his wife. When thinking about a man, especially a football player hitting a woman and getting suspended only two games, Goodell seems to go a little harder when it is player versus player. Rules are getting more disciplined on hitting in football and if you break them, players are getting suspended more than just a couple of games. Something to think about.
