Ray Rice sure has had a tough year in the media but it seems now that things are rising up. And by "rising"we don't mean an Age-zuki (Japanese for "rising punch".)

Our friends at TMZ were the first to release videos this year of a confrontation between Rice and his fiance Janay Palmer in a Casino in Atlantic City. Well, we wouldn't call that a confrontation, more like a poor woman getting her ass kicked by a professional football star. This lead to his indefinite suspension from the NFL.

Now, it's been reported that Rice has won an appeal against his indefinite suspension and will be reinstated into the NFL. However before he gets back onto the field he will need to find a team that will sign him. Lucky for him if he is not picked up he'll at least have a potential boxing career to fall back on.

But seriously people, give the guy break. If everyone who beat their wife would be out of a job the unemployment rate in this country would be out of control. Just sayin'.
