Ray Rice: I See Why People Commit Suicide


Suicide is a serious issue, so I hope that Ray Rice didn’t throw this out there looking for sympathy. He did a horrible thing, but there are a lot more people in the world worse off than Ray Rice. He isn’t playing football, but he also isn’t in jail. I can understand feeling down about your situations, but I also hope that he is counting his blessings.

Here are the quotes courtesy of FTW.

“It’s tough, I realize that’s a battle I’m going to have to face for the rest of my life,” Rice told the Baltimore Sun. “Time does heal everything, but I don’t think people are going to forget this. I want people to not forget about the incident, but I want people to see there’s a human being on the other side. This is not a monster, a guy who’s a repeat offender. I’m not the guy they stereotype me to be. I’m not excusing what I did.”

“The big picture of it all, being the person that I am, I really felt horrible,” Rice told the newspaper. “You almost want to punish yourself. I know I’m never going to win the battle of public opinion. Honestly, I almost felt like at one point that it wasn’t worth living. I see why people commit suicide

In the end, I don’t think Ray Rice’s actions off the field are why teams are going to shy away from him.  I believe they don’t think his on the field production is worth the PR drama that comes with bringing him in.
