You get hit by your fiance, and then when you hit back you are knocked unconscious and dragged around like a bag of garbage. Then you marry him.
That's part of what I don't get.
The rest is about Ray Rice's job. I don't get how anyone could think he is paid only to throw a football around. Ray Rice is in the entertainment industry. His image is part of what he is being paid for. He is not inventing machines to save time, lives or money. He is paid to play a game. People watch football teams because they identify with them and enjoy good athletes in action.
When you offend your fan base, your use to the team is reduced. Because professional athletes are entertainers. Your livlihood depends on other people wanting to see you perform.
So do you get it now?
