John Harbaugh: Ray Rice doing all he can to make things right

Ray Rice AP

When video of Ravens running back Ray Rice dragging his unconscious fiancée Janay Palmer out of an elevator surfaced after both of them were arrested in an Atlantic City casino, Ravens coach John Harbaugh said that he would wait and let the facts determine the consequences.

Harbaugh delivered the same message on Wednesday, adding that he hasn’t seen anything different from the general public in regard to Rice’s case or what happened that night in Atlantic City. Harbaugh also said that Rice has been forthright about the incident and in his desire to do the right things going forward.

“There’s nothing he has said that hasn’t turned out to be the case,” Harbaugh said, via ESPN.com. “I know Ray is going to spend a week at a seminar type of thing as a couples-type deal. He’s doing everything he can to do what he needs to do and make things right.”

The NFL is expected to review the incident as part of the personal conduct policy, but Rice’s place with the Ravens seems to be secure in the wake of the arrest.

    ray rice’s high priced public relations team is doing all they can to make things “right”.

    How much money has he donated to spousal abuse victims so far? That could help make it right if he indeed abused his fiancee. I don’t know any of the facts but my money is against Rice doing everything he needs to do to make it right, I think Harbaugh is full of crap. And he’s never said something that hasn’t been the case? Not sure how many things Rice has said in his life that Harbaugh has listened to but that sounds like BS too. It clearly sounds like he hasn’t even talked to Rice about this incident or in-depth. So he is going to sit around and wait for the facts to naturally present themselves and not obtain that info at all from Rice? That’s awfully convenient, well I would just not take anything Harbaugh says seriously, he just doesn’t seem like a trustworthy kind of person that you can count on to speak to you truthfully and straight. All he does is talk up the people that he likes, but no substance or meaningful words.

    Harbaugh should find some seminar type of things to go learn from as well. I recommend any that have to do with Leadership, Public Speaking, or Women’s Rights. Cause right now all he is doing is sounding like an ignorant idiot, and somebody that might not have much respect for women. But then again he’s buddies with Ray Rice, so maybe they just have a different culture that I don’t understand. One where it’s cool to allegedly handle your lover’s body like a cold dead fish after knocking the sense out of them. These losers deserve each other, keep them both in Baltimore please and let’s contain the stench of crap that is spewing out of control.

    If the team can look past the Lewis situation, then giving Rice a pass will be no trouble at all.

    small potatos compared to out-right murder, of course the will over look it.

    The dude spits on people. That’s all you need to know.

    Rice will be back in a Ravens uniform. He and his fiancee will get the help they are seeking and the haters will still hate because their team isn’t as good.

  7. crownofthehelmet says: Mar 6, 2014 2:24 PM

    They don’t want to keep him, they just can’t afford to cut him and take the cap hit.

    I guess you really care about Rice as person…..? What does anyone else team have to do with this tragedy? Skippy football doesn’t matter in this case….

  9. scoobies05 says: Mar 6, 2014 3:44 PM

    absolutely correct bro. it’s just the business of the game

  10. scoobies05 says: Mar 6, 2014 5:05 PM

    if you are trying to make reference to the ray lewis case, just to remind you mr meatwagon, ray lewis was never even tried, much less convicted for murder because all charges were dropped. the team believed in him and stood by him. hope this helps

    if i am not mistaken, the strategy expert is a vikings fan. not really a fan base to comment on their players behavior

    I really don’t understand your point. He plays football. This is a football site. If he didn’t play football and was an average guy in Atlantic City we never would have heard about it. People who follow the team closely probably know a lot more about Rice as person. Is this bad? Of course it is. Do I believe he is trying everything to make it right? Yes I do. Do we know the full situation? No. Frankly is it any of our business what is going on? No.

  13. chargrz says: Mar 6, 2014 5:26 PM

    Cap hit or not the Ravens should show some backbone and just cut him.

  14. jackericsson says: Mar 6, 2014 5:38 PM

    When he says, “make things right”, does he mean how Ray Ray Lewis made things right by getting rid of the witnesses? And then the evidence- the suit. Or does this Ray have a better plan to make things right?

    All valid points skippy but your hater comment about a team not being as good etc required you to backpedal and justify your comments. Glad to help you remove your foot from your mouth….your welcome

    Lewis was charged with obstruction of justice. The case did go to trial and lewis refused to testify because he knew he would incriminate himself. Lewis disposed of the evidence so prosecution didn’t have much on him except hearsay, but to say he wasn’t found guilty just isn’t true. The ravens often seem to stand by spouse a users (Rice) and child abusers (Suggs). Rice is guilty in the court of public opinion and has been dropped by most of his sponsors. The only people that stand by him are the ignorant trash that the ravens fan base is composed of, and the sub human staff that john winebaugh employs. Biscotti was too busy tanning for comment.

    ravens deserve, and want these guys–He might go to the hall like lewis! See guys get killed- call your agent, knock your girl out, well at least he dragged her of the elevator-that shows the ravens he has the makings of a leader on their team. John is the perfect coach, how many could say what he stated with a straight face–Baltimore must be proud.

  18. laxer37 says: Mar 6, 2014 7:25 PM

    Rice is a washed up, over-paid, woman beater.
    Yet the Ravens have no choice but to keep him because of the cap hit. That’s how far they’ve fallen since 2012.

  19. SmashMouthFootball says: Mar 6, 2014 7:39 PM

    Backpedaled on nothing nofoolnodrool, skippy. I still content that all the hating on Rice are from teams that wish they could enjoy the same success of Ravens. Glad to help you understand such basic concepts…you’re welcome. I’ll go slower next time.

  20. scoobies05 says: Mar 6, 2014 9:01 PM

    gosh…it must just be the Ravens that have bad guys on their team and all of the 31 other teams have saints(no pun intended). no one is defending Ray Rice. if he did what he is accused of he should pay whatever penalty. but to say the Ravens support all the bad guys is ludicrous. look at your team…has any member of. the team you support ever run afoul of the law. if the answer is yes, then please get off of your soap box

    “I still contend that all the hating on Rice are from teams taht wish they could enjoy the same success”

    Probably some of that going on, but I would bet the bigger source comes from people who just think he’s a bad dude for beating up a woman. And amen scoobs, but you forgot that only 30 other teams have these problems – steelers are perfect and squeeky clean. In fact, they’re all at bible study as we speak.

    my bad

  23. scoobies05 says: Mar 8, 2014 12:17 PM

    skins for life. you really have no understanding of the ray lewis case at all. first of all , the case did go to trial. the two men that were tried were ruled to have acted in self defense and were acquited. becausd the two men that died insigated the whole fight. the murder charges against ray were dropped because of lack of evidence. if the only thing going for the prosecution was the white suit, then shouldnt that show you how desperate they were. was the suit a muder weapon? what exactly would that have proven? ray plead guilty to obstruction because thats what he did. he admitted to his mistake and paid his penalty. and do you mean to say that in the 14 years that this happened, no one has come forward? talk about living in a dream world.
