Ray Rice gets a joke of a suspension
Roger strikes again...2 games for knocking his girlfriend out cold and dragging her through an elevator out
into the hotel lobby.
Slap on the wrist.
Ben got what 6 games? For not breaking any laws!!!!
I'm not surprised by this at all. Roger plays his favorites.
pathetic even by godells standards
Hall of Famer
I believe 100% that the severity of Ben's suspension was primarily the result of two factors.
1. He is a high-profile quarterback
2. He is white
The fact that there were two unsubstantiated allegations levied against him in a relatively short period of time surely influenced Goodell's thinking as well, but I believe it runs a distant 3rd in the decision-making process. This was his chance to show the world that he wasn't going to show preferential treatment to a white guy or star quarterback.
If true, 2 games for Ray Rice is shameful.
Surprised he got anything
I'm going to send an e-mail to Goodell's office. Notice I said "office", because he will never see it personally. I know it's a futile exercise but sometimes you just have to vent.
He should have been suspended two games for the stupid press conference alone....
You guys keep forgetting that our owners WANTED Ben suspended to send a message.
LOL... that doesn't make any damn sense and you know it.

Good thing he didn't kill her, he might have gotten a 3 game suspension...
