Ray Rice — ELEVATOR KNOCKOUT … Fiancee Takes Crushing Punch (Video) http://t.co/jc7FEo3931

The NFL claims that they have never seen the full video of Ray Rice hitting his fiance Janay (now wife) before today. Do you believe that?
Now with this video out there, there was a major reaction around the NFL from people who believe Ray Rice deserves a harsher punishment.
I just saw the Ray Rice video smdh… As a man, I have no respect for him any longer. NONE. I don't see how any man could.

Ray Rice, at a loss for words. If anybody believes that's the FIRST time he's hit a woman, I got an ocean in AZ I'd like to sell you #Coward

There are still Ravens fans defending Ray Rice. I mean…I just…I…speechless.

Thing that might be most disturbing today, since we already knew what Ray Rice did was reprehensible, is that the NFL hadn't seen the video.

Not a good day to be Ray Rice… RT @LarryFitzgerald: Does anybody know what day it is?????

That man should be thrown out the the nfl and thrown into jail. Shame on those deciding his punishment. Smh

Am I the only one who believes it should be a lifetime ban for the first time a player commits domestic violence? They should be done period

@nflcommish to say you got that wrong is an understatement. Very disappointed in you. Wow…unbelievable.

Watched Ray Rice Video. As a man I am disgusted. As former NFL player I am ashamed by handling of this by the league. Despicable.

It is hard to get around this: If TMZ was able to obtain the Ray Rice video…it was obtainable.

I saddened and sickened about the message the Ray Rice video sends especially to victims but, really, to all of us.

I am never speechless. That ray rice video… beyond words. Ban him now! …

The Ray Rice video is the most disturbing thing I've seen in a long time.. He could have killed her w/ punch or when her head hits rail. SAD

The Ray Rice video was both disturbing and disgusting. I think the league and Ravens need to revisit the punishment in this particular case.

Rice has to go… no other route

Just saw the video of Ray Rice hitting his then fiancée. Absolutely appalling. Two games not enough
