.. Rice is being penalized under two different policies , as I understand it ..

.. his initial suspension was under the domestic violence policy , that being for 2 games . The added suspension was administered , I believe , under the personal conduct policy …

.. [link] to the elevator attack video …

.. they were the same act , but out of sequence …. the current video follows the previous one …. Rice cannot receive different suspensions for the same act …

.. it gets worse . The league has made Rice ” radioactive ” to all 32 teams , including the ugh – Ravens . They have stated that any intent to sign Rice would be ” a very bad idea . ” The NFL cannot put a ” scarlet letter on a player , except under the terms of the C.B.A. ….

.. so , the N.F.L. has problems on multiple fronts . I thought that the antics for my favourite team [Browns ‘ owner Jimmy Haslam , for the actions of his employees at his trucking stop company , Pilot Flying J] were bad . This is waaaay worse …
