NFL Domestic Violence Backlash

by The Insider 2:22 mins

ESPN has a civil war on its hands — and what seems to be a gender battle too. "SportsNation" host Michelle Beadle lashed out on Twitter at "First Take" host Stephen A. Smith for his comments about domestic abuse. All this after Ravens running back Ray Rice received a two-game suspension for allegedly punching his then fiancée Janay Palmer and knocking her out. The NFL suspension was handed down Thursday, nearly five months after TMZ posted disturbing footage of Rice dragging Palmer's unconscious body out of an elevator. Rice and Palmer ended up getting married, and in May they appeared in a news conference together in which she insinuated she had an element of responsibility in the event. Many have said Rice's suspension was too lenient. During practice in Baltimore on Monday, Rice received a standing overation from fans, according to reports. Check out this video for more on this story and tune in to "The Insider With Yahoo" on TV tonight.
