Was Ray Rice and his wife abandoned by the Ravens organization?
Did the Baltimore Ravens abandon Ray Rice and his wife? According to Janay they did. In an interview with the Today Show, Janay told Matt Lauer she feels completely betrayed by the NFL team for the way they hung Ray out to dry after the elevator incident.
During Part 1 of her interview with the “Today” show (which aired this morning), Janay explains that she never thought the team would turn their back on him, and fire him after he was honest about what happened in February.
“The support system that I thought we had in the Ravens, that made me angry,” Janay explained. She then went on to say that Ray had never hit her before the incident and hasn’t laid a finger on her since.
Janay went on to say it was “God’s Plan” to have the incident happen to them:
“I feel like God chose me and Ray for a reason, and it was definitely to bring awareness to what people are going through every day.”
I hope Ray gets another shot, but these interviews need to stop. I want Ray to play again, and I hope he truly learned from his mistakes.
