Apparently, the “very minor physical altercation” resulted in Rice’s fianceé getting knocked out cold.
TMZ has posted surveillance video(LINK TO VID) that shows, per TMZ’s characterization, Rice dragging his seemingly unconscious fianceé out of an elevator at an Atlantic City casino. It’s a bizarre, awkward sequence of events, showing Rice essentially dumping her from the elevator car and then not knowing quite how to get her legs out.
It seems to me like the NFL, the Ravens and even some of you guys on this forum doesnt think the domestic violence is that important. Shows how our society is now a days. This doesnt seem like a big deal to people and it disturbs me. I am not being a moralist here but domestic violence is a serious deal. I know some people believe that if the girl hits you that you have the right to beat her up. I don't believe that at all. Sure there are females that needs a little slappin but if you are true man and strong enough to control your actions, its easy to walk away. Unless she chase you around with a knife and you had to defend yourself. Beating up a women because of arguements doesnt matter how much she deserve it is just wrong in my opinion. Am I the only person who believe this?
MDA is an offensive genius. I hope he sticks to his guns and keeps doing what he does best: Run and Gun. That's the only way to coach.

i've been mad at women several times in my life, but to punch one? don't understand how that thought process works...never will
I don't advocate it either.
But I don't advocate the violence in any respect, male or female.
It's not just "hitting women" it's "hitting" in general.
I've known many male friends of mine that have been abused and assaulted by their women and 40% of the domestic violence that happens is female on male. It's not alright in any aspect whatsoever.
So I don't advocate man hitting a woman, I also don't advocate a woman assaulting a male. It's taboo that needs to be talked about is abuse happens on both sides.
It has become 'socially alright' to stand there and take it if a woman is assaulting or abusing you because if you hit her or defend yourself you're instantly the bad guy and this philosophy that "no matter what a woman does you can't hit her" to me is stupid.
If a woman is downright assaulting me and I have to defend myself I'm going to.
But mind you physical assault and self defense is the only place where I would understand it. But "I'm mad at you so I'm gonna hit you" no, I don't like in the least and feel any man that does that should be punished and in the same breath a woman shouldn't physically assault her male because she's mad at him either.
What Beyonce's sister was doing to Jay-Z in the elevator where she was basically physically assaulting him and kicking him at his head and body and throwing punches trying to actually hurt him and had a security guard not been there could have gotten worse. Had Jay-Z decked her while she was aggressively trying to hurt him would he have been in the wrong? No. Not in my opinion. And he almost did a few times on reflex but the security guard pulled her away.
Assault happens on both ends to male and to female, in the event of assault you are fully in your right to defend yourself male or female, female or male. But in terms of "we're having an argument, I'm mad, I'm gonna hit you." THEN I have a problem with it on BOTH sides.
But if you're being assaulted, you should have the right to defend yourself no matter what gender is assaulting you.
This video should get more views and would likely open a lot of eyes
Another thing that stands out to me if you read this video in the comments a man comments about growing up with his sister and being abused, but not physically but mentally and he made a very good point about how mental abuse can also be turmoil and his sister and family on that side did it to him for years and how he wishes that the mental abuse from woman to male was acknowledged as much as male to woman mental/physical abuse because he endured it for years growing up and even now.
First comment on his post was someone saying "Well she's your sister. So sisters don't count."
This as well
