Floyd Mayweather Thinks The Ray Rice Punishment Was Too Harsh

Convicted wife-beater and all-around smartest guy in the world Floyd Mayweather told the Associated Press on Tuesday he thinks the NFL was too hard on former Ravens running back Ray Rice.

Mayweather told reporters he didn’t think the video evidence should have increased Rice’s suspension from two games to an indefinite ban.

“I think there’s a lot worse things that go on in other people’s households, also,” he said. “It’s just not caught on video, if that’s safe to say.”

I could possibly listen to Mayweather’s stupid logic, except he has been at the center of several domestic violence incidents, including in 2002, for beating a woman, 2004, for beating two women and 2012, when he beat his girlfriend and threatened his children.

But don’t worry. He claims he has been falsely accused most of the time. That’s why there’s no evidence.

“Like I’ve said in the past, no bumps, no bruises, no nothing,” he said. “With O.J. and Nicole, you seen pictures. With Chris Brown and Rihanna, you seen pictures. With [Chad] Ochocinco and Evelyn, you seen pictures. You guys have yet to see any pictures of a battered woman, a woman who says she was kicked and beaten [by Mayweather.] So I just live my life and try to stay positive, and try to become a better person each and every day.”
