  1. Ray Rice Wins NFL Appeal

    In a major blow to Commissioner Roger Goodell, an arbiter overturned the indefinite suspension of the former Baltimore Ravens running back who was videotaped knocking out his fiancée in a hotel elevator. Former federal judge Barbara S. Jones ruled that the league had arbitrarily increased his punishment from the initial two games, dismissing claims that Rice originally misrepresented the severity of the assault. Rice can now return to the NFL — if a team will sign him, which isn’t at all likely.
