Mike T on NFL Network is the voice of reason. Good for you Mike

Seems like a quiet day for Amaro. I expect the beatwriters to start the "he's a bust" drumbeat -- even if its for a day.

Pettine keeps scooping up his former charges, as expected.

I need a transcript of this conversation.

Sounds like juvenile court.

"Oh, you're already getting counseling? Wonderful. Way to be proactive. That shows a real effort to correct your mistake, so obviously you're cured and we'll trust you to just continue that counseling as needed."

"Well what if I hadn't been able to afford the counseling on my own?"

"YOU'D HAVE BEEN F***ED IN THE A**!"

TL:DR version:


It would be one thing if you just beat your wife in the sanctity of your home, but doing so on videotape affects the "confidence of the public" and so we totally have to suspend you really, really harshly with two whole games.  Let's agree to keep our woman-beating behind closed doors from now on, guys.

Clear as day Goodell plays favorites.  Easy to see he has Biscotti's back

@tsjc68 Well that is a smart move when Harbaugh says he will stand behind Rice. If he stood in front, Ray will punch him out.

That's BS.  Ray has been abusing women since he was in college (as far as I know) [I went to Rutgers] I've been at a few parties where he showed up.  Girl got in his face and he shoved her into a wall.

I have a good friend who knows him personally and says he has been beating that girls arse for years.  Just sad that he only got 2 games.

"Whoops, sorry that I violently beat a woman whom I have a massive physical advantage over until she lost consciousness, that was just a mistake."


Sincerely,

Ray Rice

@williamg1 Slower in terms of overall speed and agility, or slower in his recovery? or both?!

@tsjc68 @idothis2 Mike T and Solomon were saying that although Vick wants to start, that he genuinely wants Geno to succeed and that should have a positive effect on the team. he really likes the moves the Jets made for decker, Johnson, and amaro. all in all he was anti Jets media coverage. was kinda refreshing

I want to know whose phone that screenshot is from, though.  WHO THE HELL HAS 15,000 UNREAD MESSAGES?!??!

He is not punching no dudes, because they hit back. 

Punks like that fight woman.  they do not step to real men.  He is a chump...plain and simple!!

He totally learned his lesson from those other times, man, and he's just a heck of a guy now.

Did Ray Rice beat any dogs, though?  That's the question.  Because it's no biggie to beat up your wife/girlfriend, but DON'T LET ME FIND OUT YOU TOUCHED A HAIR ON A DOG'S BODY, DAMNIT.

@jetlife @williamg1

The latter.  Rex is talking about recovery, saying Colon will be ready to play today but Barnes will be "slower" to get back on the field.

I'm glad that I now know that assaulting a woman is "inconsistent with league policies".

@tsjc68

That is the sad part.  My boy said he had to get this 200 plus lb NFL player off of this petite woman who he was dragging down the hallway of her apartment building.  He was dating her roommate so she called him over to break it up. 

Ray Rice is a punk and I dare him to every step to me I will personally break is punk arse up.

Or ACL's recovery is SLOWER than arthroscopic surgery.

I don't expect Barnes to be the same guy we seen at the beginning of last year until the beginning of next year.

@tsjc68 @harold Still having trouble processing that assaulting a woman is a lesser offense that smoking a joint.   This league is ridiculous.

Terrelle Pryor got 5 games for taking money and gifts in college.  Nuff said!!

Maybe this woman is just irresistibly beatable and he's actually shown saintly restraint in not murdering her.  Let's not judge.

To be clear, I'm not suggesting that Vick should have faced less punishment for the disgusting acts he did, just that Rice should face MORE punishment.

@Disgruntled Jets Fan @tsjc68 @harold Weed gets you the same suspension as rape. Although, rape usually brings a 6 week suspension, if you can prove that you only raped the woman a little bit (like Big Ben), you can get it reduced to 4 games.

@harold

And counting his suspension while at Ohio State, he was suspended TEN TOTAL GAMES by TWO CABALS WHO ANSWER TO NOBODY for 

A.) selling his legally owned personal property and

B.) getting a discount on a tattoo

The second year after the injury is about as good as you will get.  It's all in your head after that.  If you can put it out of your head then you can be the same player(that is really difficult though)

@williamg1 @Disgruntled Jets Fan @tsjc68 @harold

Was it your first rape or your second rape, though?  That's the question.  First rape is just a couple of games, but after the second rape, we really need to start cracking down on things.


Sincerely,

Roger Goodell

@jetlife @tsjc68 Yes, him too (although I see Reilly more as Pace's replacement at SAM than in the mix with Coples/Barnes/Babin at RUSH/DPR, but yes, he could contribute over there as well.)

TL:DR version:


If you're raped, you should accept that rape-baby as a gift from god and keep it.


Sincerely,

A bunch of guys who don't have a uterus or a vagina and thus will never ever have to be faced with the actual tangible concept of being forced to carry your rapist's baby
