Ray Rice, the NFL running back suspended for assaulting his wifecould be returning to the league within the next four weeks. Looks like that indefinite suspension isn’t so indefinite. 

How the NFL and commissioner Roger Goodell have dealt with the violent incident has, reasonably, been under fire since videos of the assault surfaced. Most of us have called attention to the fact the NFL treats women horribly, refuses to hold its players accountable, and is creating a culture of violence and misogyny

But some of us are just plain pumped that Rice could be coming back!

If you were outraged by the idiots who have donned Rice’s jersey to Baltimore Ravens games this year, then you’re not going to want to read the following tweets from fans who can’t wait for the running back and domestic assault perpetrator to take the field and are making predictions about where he could end up. 

This may not happen but I hope ray rice is reinstated to the nfl . Still got my baltimore love
