• Ravens take back almost 8,000 Rice jerseys


    WASHINGTON: The Baltimore Ravens, under fire for their handling of Ray Rice’s assault case, exchanged almost 8,000 of the star running back’s jerseys, The Baltimore Sun reported on Saturday (Sunday in Manila). The team offered the exchange for fans who had bought Rice merchandise but no longer wanted to wear the jersey of the player caught on video punching the woman who is now his wife in a casino elevator. The Rice case – in which his original two-game ban drew sharp criticism as being too lenient – is just one of the cases of off-field violence that have the immensely popular NFL facing a public relations crisis.
