    I couldn’t disagree more with the assessment that Ray Rice is productive. Whoever wrote that headline obviously did not watch the NFL last season.

    The only way this logic holds is if you’re totally oblivious to the entire Roethlisberger affair. What was most mystifying about this is that there was clear precedent there where another star (a bigger star) got a harsher punishment for actions that were less severe.
