EA Sports Will Remove Ray Rice From Madden NFL 15

First he gets suspended and now he's not in the video game.

Well, can't say he doesn't deserve it. After controversial Baltimore Ravens running back Ray Rice got suspended from the NFL for punching his then-fiancee and current wife, Janay Rice, EA Sports has confirmed that they'll be removing him from the recently released Madden NFL 15.

Here's what an EA Sports representative told GameSpot:

"With Ray Rice's indefinite suspension from the NFL, he will be removed from Madden NFL 15. This roster change will take place by this Friday."

At first, Rice only got a two-game suspension for the transgression, which angered a lot of people. But then a new video posted by TMZ showed Rice actually punching Janay, and then dragging her unconscious body out of an elevator. Since then, the NFL has responded with an indefinite suspension, even though Rice's wife continues to defend her husband.

...which isn't earning her a whole lot of fans, by the way.

The overreaction is beyond belief. Michael Vick, dog killer, is still in the game and still in the NFL. Ray Lewis, a murderer, is one of the most revered sports figures in American sports history, there's countless others who have beat their girl friends/wives who are still in the league, but because this was on a video it's like people have lost their damn minds. Not excusing the behavior, Ray Rice is an idiot and a scumbag, but this is getting pretty stupid.

Ray Lewis is not murderer.I am sick of people saying that, the same as OJ.Only in America (if you are black) can you be labeled something when you are found not guilty.FYI Ray was charged with obstruction of justice and Vick went to prison for interstate gambling.Comparing violence against dogs to murder or hitting a human shows a flaw in your logic.Should have said racist Riley Cooper and Ritchie Incognito are still in the league.

Yeah but OJ is a murderer, just cuz they confused the jury into thinking that a disrupted crime scene can change somebody elses DNA into OJ's doesn't mean it's true.

It's completely different when you have video proof in the hands of the public. It's much easier to ignore when you can just call them "allegations". I don't really understand why his actions reflect the NFL's public image (or any non-related personal life thing)... only in America, I guess... but the video proof in the hands of the public introduces a whole other catalyst.

He knocked out his lady, who for all we know was completely insane before the camera was rolling (she admits some responsibility, let's take her at her word). You never DO have an excuse to knock out a woman but the explosion of media fake outrage is out of control. Rice has to bear the whole United State's domestic abuse problem?

An otherwise nice guy blew up, they both looked drunk, and he got fired. End of story, stop talking about it.

I'm confused... do you need to be bondable or pass a vulnerable sector check to play in the NFL? I get him paying legal repercussions for his actions, as he should, but I don't really understand why the NFL is involved. I mean, I get it... it's because of public image, blah blah blah, but why does the NFL need good public image? They're a money making machine.

Leave it to the teams to decide who represents their team, I say.

Roger Goodell instituted a Code of Conduct policy that the NFL players union agreed to and that is why they are involved to the extent they are. It helps to quickly punish mental midgets such as Ray Rice. All players are made aware of the policy but only some decide to follow it.
