Ray Rice assault expunged After one of the most visible beat-downs in social-media history, former NFL running back Ray Rice has had his misdemeanor assault conviction expunged from his record. Atlantic City Presiding Judge Michael A. Donio signed the order early Thursday morning. It was part of Rice's plea deal. You will recall that on Feb. 15, 2014, Rice was videotaped striking, and apparently knocking senseless, his then-fiancée/now wife, Janay Rice , in an elevator at the Revel casino of fond memory in A.C. Much was the outcry and social discussion re: domestic abuse.

OWINGS MILLS, Md. - Ray Rice has played in eight postseason games, none more memorable than the one in which he ran for 159 yards to help the Baltimore Ravens beat the New England Patriots. About the only thing that could possibly top that would be playing in the Super Bowl, a quest Rice just might realize if he can run wild again in Sunday's AFC championship game against those same Patriots. Now in his fourth season, Rice has emerged as Baltimore's main offensive threat.

The security video lasted just 49 seconds, and as security videos often are in such situations, it was grainy and fuzzy and had the feel of a sequence in a Scorsese film. But there was no mistaking what it showed. On a February night inside an Atlantic City casino, an elevator's doors slid apart, and Ray Rice, a running back for the Baltimore Ravens, emerged, holding the woman who is now his wife, Janay Palmer. In a fight minutes earlier, Rice had rendered her unconscious , and now she was in Rice's arms, slumped over at her torso.

The Atlantic County Prosecutor's Office says it is taking over the investigation into a physical altercation between Baltimore Ravens star running back Ray Rice and his fiancee, Janay Palmer, in the Revel Casino Hotel that police records say left Palmer unconscious.

It should have been easy to examine the Ray Rice domestic-violence case and pick out the worst person involved. Who possibly could be more despicable than the perpetrator? Who could have done anything nearly as vile as knocking out his future wife with a powerful left to the head? Shockingly, there are more than a few contenders. Start with Rice's Baltimore-based attorney, Andrew Alperstein. During an interview with the Baltimore Sun, Alperstein described what happened in February on an Atlantic City hotel casino elevator as "a very minor physical altercation.

When NFL running back Ray Rice applied to a pre-trial intervention program on May 1 - which, if completed, would help dismiss the charges against him - he had to clear more hurdles than many other applicants. Those accepted into the program have typically committed minor crimes, such as theft or drug possession. Rice, accused of punching his then-fiancée in an elevator at Atlantic City's Revel Casino Hotel earlier this year, was charged with aggravated assault - a violent crime.

There's a marvelous scene in the film All the President's Men in which the Washington Post's editors are holding their afternoon meeting, reviewing the day's most important stories and deciding which ones merit front-page placement, when the topic of Watergate comes up. It is still early in the scandal's evolution, and one of the editors argues that "no one cares" about its latest development. Besides, the editor says, if Watergate were really a big deal, we'd put our most seasoned political reporters on the story.

MY 7-YEAR-OLD cousin has a Ray Rice jersey. Used to wear it everywhere. Thanksgiving, Christmas, family picnics. Our first stars are our fondest, after all. Sometimes I think we spend the rest of our lives trying to recapture those first moments of sports consciousness. In that sense, Ray Rice will aways be a part of her. Yep. Her. My 7-year-old cousin is a girl. Seven, going on 32, her father says. I suspect he is already stockpiling ammunition. If you see him around Baltimore in 9 or 10 years, buy him a beer or three.

Based on the last several days, the NFL's inactives on Sunday will include Self Control, Moral Clarity, and Common Sense. As weeks go, the NFL just had a doozy. In substance and appearance, it might have been the worst in the league's history. TMZ obtained and released the security video of Baltimore Ravens running back Ray Rice in an Atlantic City casino elevator, knocking out his wife, Janay, with a left hook. With that, the outrage that already had been simmering over NFL commissioner Roger Goodell's meek two-game suspension of Rice finally reached a bubbling boil.

I'm not paid to be a role model. ... Parents should be role models.   - Charles Barkley   The suspension of New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady, winner of the last Super Bowl and a virtual lock to one day be inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame, is the latest development in an ongoing conversation about cheating in sports, and even Americans who are uninterested in athletics should pay attention. The National Football League on Monday suspended Brady for the first four games of next season for orchestrating or knowing about a scheme to deliberately deflate footballs, making them easier to throw during last season's AFC Championship Game against the Indianapolis Colts.

Ray Rice, his wife, Janay, and his attorneys have had their say in front of an arbitrator. Adrian Peterson's punishment - reckless assault of a child resulting in a $4,000 fine and 80 hours of community service - has been settled in a Texas court. Now we wait. Rice's appeal of his indefinite suspension by NFL commissioner Roger Goodell will drag on a while longer. Barbara Jones, the former federal judge who served as the arbitrator, still has to make a ruling, and that could take a week or maybe even two. Even when Jones does rule and even if she rules in favor of the former Baltimore Ravens running back, Rice's case is complicated.

JUST 2 DAYS after CBSSports.com reported that Ray Rice could be reinstated to the NFL within a month, the NHL made it clear to everyone that it will not be the next league dragged through the slush over its handling of domestic-abuse cases involving its players. But please . . . hold your applause. Los Angeles Kings defenseman Slava Voynov doesn't have his mug on a video-game box or his jersey all over the backs of kids and adults nationwide. There's no wing of his memorabilia on display at his alma mater.

The recent steps and missteps of the National Football League as it handled and mishandled the situation involving running back Ray Rice have, in some ways, improved the national dialogue concerning domestic abuse and, in others, merely filled the air with noise and static. Everyone seems to have an agenda, an angle to pursue. The NFL had one (get this thing over with). Rice had one. Sponsors had one. Social scientists. Journalists. Women's rights organizations. Politicians. It was an apple big enough for everyone to take a bite.

THE CLIMATE is right. If, as sports fans, we truly are interested in scaling back the sense of entitlement so many athletes have simply because they are athletes, we have a window of opportunity to push things forward. If, as a society, we truly are concerned that well-paid and well-positioned athletes be responsible for acting in manners more attuned with accepted social standards, we have the chance to act on that. At this particular moment in time, the owners, the university presidents, the presidents of sports sanctioning bodies know they can no longer just sweep misdeeds committed by their athletes quietly under the rug. Too many people are watching and keeping score.

Shaneen Allen, the South Philadelphia mother arrested for carrying a legally registered handgun from another state into New Jersey, must give up her .380-caliber Bersa Thunder and complete 25 hours of community service as part of her admission into a pre-trial intervention program, her attorney said Thursday. But the losses, attorney Evan Nappen said, are small compared with Allen's victory Wednesday, when the Atlantic County Prosecutor's Office announced that it was reversing its decision to ban her from the intervention program.

If the NFL selected a Fan of the Week, serious consideration would have to go to the young woman who was photographed Sunday near TCF Bank Stadium in Minneapolis while wearing an Adrian Peterson jersey and holding a stripped down tree branch in her right hand. She was smiling broadly beneath her horned Viking helmet and fake Helga braids, a can of Coors Light in the other hand, and all you can guess is that this somehow seemed funny at the time. Of course, the outfit might not have been even as complicated as a misplaced sense of humor.

ESPN ANALYST Cris Carter had a lot to say yesterday, and none of it had to do with NFL games. He spoke emotionally about abuse, a word that has surfaced many times over the past few weeks. Running back Ray Rice was cut by the Ravens and banned by the NFL because of a video showing him knocking out his then-fiancee in a casino elevator. The Vikings deactivated running back Adrian Peterson for yesterday's game against the Patriots for allegedly hitting his child with a wooden switch.

ISSUE | DOMESTIC ABUSE Don't turn away Columnist Bob Brookover offers the most enlightened commentary on the horrific Ray Rice case ("No heroes in this mess," Sept. 10). He recognizes the untenable situation of Janay Rice as expressed by her Instagram post: "THIS IS OUR LIFE! What don't you all get. " But this is what people must get: domestic violence is everyone's business. The National Football League and the Baltimore Ravens could have done something different: stand by the Rices, help them rebuild their lives, make a huge donation to combat domestic violence, and promise Janay Rice and the couple's daughter that they will be taken care of if Rice ever again acts in a threatening manner.
