In February, Baltimore Ravens running back Ray Rice punched his then-fiancee, knocking her out cold. Video caught him dragging her unconscious body out of an elevator at a casino hotel. On July 24, the National Football League (NFL) announced an appallingly short suspension for violating its personal conduct policy: Ray Rice will miss just two games--a shorter suspension that the NFL issues for drug use or unauthorized tattoos. Everyone from Ravens fans to sports reporters are outraged. NFL Commissioner Goodell has the sole authority to change the league's policy and finally send the message that the NFL does not condone domestic violence.
