BALTIMORE, MD – In case you missed it, the Baltimore Ravens gave the Pittsburgh Steelers a beating on Thursday Night Football.

However, most of us are still focused on that off-the-field beating featuring Ray Rice and his wife.

Shockingly, female football fans proudly showed they’ve still got Rice’s back, by wearing him on theirs.

“I believe that everyone deserves a second chance,” said Ravens fan Carrie Breen.

We know the NFL believes in second, third, fourth and fifth chances, because they allow a player who committed a violent crime to come back after a six game suspension.

That’s got female senators fired up.

“Our society has too much of it, and we just can’t allow it,” said Senator Dianne Feinstein (D-California).

A bipartisan delegation of 16 lady senators sent a letter to Roger Goodell, calling on the NFL to institute a zero-tolerance policy for domestic violence.

Which brings us to this.

Remember when the NFL banned the ‘Slap Ya Mama’ hot sauce ad during the preseason?

One New Orleans businesswoman has slapped back with a banner that reads, “If you can’t slap ya mama, slap Roger Goodell.”

“That is such hypocrisy that you can’t advertise in the NFL, but you can slap your wife,” said Michelle Miller.

Here’s one high note (sort of).

Thank goodness someone had the good sense to hold off on the premiere of the new Thursday Night Football theme, ‘Run This Town’ featuring Rihanna, a woman who knows all too well what it’s like to get punched in the face.

How many more black eyes can Roger Goodell take?
