NEW YORK, NY -- A lot of people have been questioning the NFL's lack of punishment toward Baltimore's Ray Rice after his domestic dispute issues with his then-future wife back in February, which resulted in a suspension of only two games.
In a surprising turnaround, NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell says the case was 'mishandled' and a new domestic violence policy has been put in place.
For anyone in the NFL, after a first offense they will be suspended without pay for six games. A second offense results in a lifetime ban from the league.
Sonia Corrales with the Houston Area Women's Center said, "The fact that they created the policy is certainly a step in the right direction."
However, the banished second time offenders can apply to be reinstated after a year.
It's going to take more than a simple apology to make your way back in.
