If you don't know by now, the NFL's punishment for Ray Rice's actions toward his wife was a two game suspension. Does this open the door for athletes? Do you believe some players in the major sports will get the idea that they can "get away" with it like Ray did? What is your opinion? There are two sides to all stories. But, I am a proponent of being able to protect yourself. The "never hit a woman" rule does not give women carte blanche to do whatever they want, say whatever they want, etc. Especially in the times we live in now. Men will kill you, without blinking. Why put yourself in an ill position on purpose, especially with someone you "know" is violent. Now, if a man without any provocation or reason just starts beating a woman senselessly, there is no reason for that. Whoopi Goldberg and other women have said there is no reason a woman should put her hands on a man. And there is no reason a man should put his hands on a woman. But if a woman does so, she leaves the door open for a response. If you shoot a gun at someone, expect to get shot back. The reason this issue is so big, the essence that athletes, movie starts, musicians have an elevated right to do whatever they want, whenever they want and it's "swept under the rug" and "all is forgiven" after a period of time. It's not. You know there were women blaming Rhianna for getting beat up by Chris Brown? Does that sound reasonable?
