The NFL has today changed it’s domestic violence policy in light of the 2-game suspension that Baltimore Ravens Runningback Ray Rice received earlier this month. The policy entails that ALL NFL personnel will now receive a 6-game ban for a first offense, and a lifetime (that’s right, your whole life) ban from football. Note that players will still be allowed to appeal this process (meaning that if you’re famous enough or you have enough money, you may still be able to get out of punishment, just like America!).
Further details on this policy change to follow.
