Baltimore Ravens cut Ray Rice…was this the right decision?

Ray Rice is now a former Baltimore Raven. He was cut today after the 2nd video of his elevator fight with his wife became public. The NFL had suspended Rice for 2 games but the Ravens decided today to terminate his contract. Was this the right decision?

    I think it probably was the right decision. In a situation like this, no one really wins. Pro sports people are paid highly, and I think this gives both their teams and their fans the right to expect that they will conduct themselves in public (including elevators) in a fashion in keeping with their remuneration. Wealth does not automatically equate with class behaviour, but these guys are expected to set an example.

    Are we raising our girls to have self-esteem? I’m happy about the outcry and the outcome, but what about the abuse we don’t see play out in the media.
