Another day, another sports scandal, now with extra Hollywood outrage included. Back in March, Baltimore Ravens running back Ray Rice was given a 2-day slap-on-the-wrist suspension after hotel surveillance footage was released of him dragging his fiance Janay Palmer’s unconscious body out of an elevator.
A number of people jumped to Rice’s defense (including Whoopi Goldberg), the stance being that Ray is a good guy and we don’t really know what happened.
Well now we do, as elevator surveillance, made public by TMZ, shows Ray Rice punching his fiance rather conclusively in the face, so he is now suspended indefinitely from the NFL.
Seth Rogen, the same guy who called Justin Bieber a piece of poo, is all over Twitter saying he doesn’t know much about football, but Rice should never play football again, and that he should remove his head from his posterior. Rogen also takes exception to the fact that the original NFL suspension was half the time given to players who smoke marijuana, a cause and activity very dear to Rogen’s heart. If Rogen wasn’t such a fuzzy stoner, he could run the NFL himself.
