I've been following with great interest the news regarding former Baltimore Ravens running back Ray Rice and his well-documented case of domestic violence. If you've been living under a rock here's a link to get you caught up. The most interesting quote regarding this case came from former teammate and mentor, Ray Lewis, “I’m disappointed. This is personal for me, so I’m torn because this is a young man I really took up under my wing and tried to mentor to make sure he had a successful career and stayed away from things like this. Seeing this video, let me be very clear with going through this personally, a man should never, ever put his hands on a woman. Bottom line. We can speculate about a lot of things but what we need to make sure is very clear is what we saw on this video is him putting his hands on a woman and that’s where it’s personal for me.”
