I would say if you are physically fighting in a casino to the point one of you are knocked unconscious and being dragged around like a rag doll, you might have have more than just a couple of issues.
But, according to John Harbaugh it is just something they need counseling for and he expects Rice to stay with the team.
“Ray and I are real close,” Harbaugh said. “We have been for a long time, so it’s an easy conversation to have. I love Janay. She’s a great person.
“The two people obviously have a couple issues that they have to work through, and they’re both committed to doing that. That was the main takeaway for me from the conversation. They understand their own issues. They’re getting a lot of counseling and those kinds of things, so I think that’s really positive. That was the main takeaway.”
“There are a lot of facts and a process that has to be worked through in anything like this,” Harbaugh said. “There are a lot of question marks. But Ray’s character, you guys know his character. So you start with that.”
Actually, we don’t know Ray Rice at all. He could be a great guy who had a momentary lapse in judgment or he could be someone very comfortable hitting women. You never know, so don’t in assume.
