Apparently it is the second charge of criminal conduct when the Ravens start counting - but of course that policy was established 14 years ago

Baltimore Ravens owner Steve Bisciotti said running back Ray Rice has a future with the team despite being arrested on a domestic violence assault charge last month.

"If everybody was one-strike-and-you're-out, then we'd all be in trouble,"
Bisciotti told ESPN at the NFL owners meetings Monday. "When somebody repeats mistakes, it's showing a lack of character to me. You can't take what Ray's done -- the kind of locker-room influence he's been and the kind of community commitment that he's shown -- and say he's a different person."

"I showed my support," Bisciotti said. "Would I show my support with repeated failures? No."..

Rice was one of three Ravens players to be arrested in a 22-day period. Backup wide receiver Deonte Thompson was arrested for possession of marijuana on Feb. 21, and reserve offensive lineman Jah Reid was arrested on two misdemeanor charges of battery on March 9.

Asked whether he was concerned about his team's image, Bisciotti said, "I'm disappointed, but I'm not concerned."

The guy does make a good point, especially when dealing with people who are making you money, it's always good to give them another chance. I'm a bit upset with him saying he's disappointed and not concerned. With the incidents of violence and suicide from NFL players recently I'd be concerned that my starting RB has gotten into this trouble.

He would probably have à different view if it was à fringe player he didnt owe $ to. BUT now RR lost "12-13" lbs of fat and is in great shape it helps. He was fat and dinged last year, he is on a mission to be the fittest he has ever been and keeping his nose clean. Lol...money will do that. He will be suspended like 2 games, watch.

Roger Goodell: Ray Rice's legal situation on NFL's radar
By Marc Sessler
Around the League Writer
Published: March 26, 2014 at 11:08 a.m. Updated: March 26, 2014 at 12:08 p.m.

ORLANDO, Fla. -- The league office has its eyes fixed on Baltimore Ravens running back Ray Rice.

NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell said the league will allow the legal process to play out and "let the facts dictate" Rice's fate.

Goodell told reporters Wednesday that the league continues to monitor Rice's legal situation, but gave no timetable on a possible suspension on the heels of the runner's arrest last month for simple assault at an Atlantic City casino.

this is a big reason why Goodell's face shouldn't be on any fines or punishments. It's not his job to be a cop or judge or whatever.

Ravens RB Ray Rice was indicted today on one count of aggravated assault. Carries a 3-5 year prison term.
Roger Goodell had better be sharpening his suspension knife as we speak.

Ravens' Ray Rice indicted
Updated: March 27, 2014, 5:25 PM ET
ESPN.com news services

Baltimore Ravens running back Ray Rice was indicted by a grand jury Thursday on third-degree aggravated assault for allegedly striking his fiancée unconscious last month.

Rice was arrested and charged with simple assault-domestic violence on Feb. 15 after a physical altercation with his fiancée, Janay Palmer, at the Revel Casino and Hotel in Atlantic City, N.J. Palmer also was charged with simple assault.

Conviction of a third-degree crime in New Jersey carries a potential prison sentence of at least three years up to five years, and a fine that could be up to $15,000.

A video obtained and posted online by TMZ showed Rice lifting Palmer by her arms out of an elevator and laying her on the floor. Rice's attorney, Michael Diamondstein, has said the footage is authentic but incomplete.

"I have been advised by the prosecutor's office that an indictment has been returned," Diamondstein told ESPN on Thursday afternoon. "And again, we deny that he committed an aggravated assault. We don't think the law would support that [he did]. And we just ask the public to reserve judgment until all of the facts are out."

Ravens' Ray Rice indicted for aggravated assault
By Chris Wesseling
Around the League Writer
Published: March 27, 2014 at 04:48 p.m. Updated: March 27, 2014 at 05:48 p.m.

Baltimore Ravens running back Ray Rice's legal problems aren't going away anytime soon.

Rice was indicted by a grand jury Thursday on one count of third-degree aggravated assault for allegedly assaulting his fiancée, Janay Palmer, at an Atlantic City casino in February.

Aggravated assault is a third-degree crime carrying a potential penalty of three to five years in prison.

Rice's attorney, Michael Diamondstein, spoke to NFL Media regarding the matter.

"We deny Ray Rice committed aggravated assault," Diamondstein said Thursday. "Neither Ray nor Janay Palmer wish to prosecute the matter. Ray and Janay are together. They're happy, and they're in counseling.

"We believe that as a matter of law that Ray Rice did not commit aggravated assault. We ask only that the public reserve judgment until all the facts come to light."

The team also released a brief statement on the running back's situation: "This is part of the due process for Ray. We know there is more to Ray Rice than this one incident."

Is there some kind of weeks-long drug and alcohol fueled orgy going on at the TMZ offices or something? Why hasn't this other video surfaced yet, and more pressingly, why the hell was I not invited to this TMZ shindig?!?
