LAS VEGAS -- Floyd Mayweather Jr. says he believes the NFL should have stuck with its original discipline of Ray Rice, saying the league was overly influenced by new video showing Rice knocking out his then-fiancee in an Atlantic City, New Jersey, casino elevator.

The boxing superstar -- who has had his own domestic abuse issues -- said Tuesday that he didn't think the original two-game suspension should be changed because of the video.

Mayweather, who spent two months in a Las Vegas jail in 2012, still maintains his innocence even after pleading guilty to reduced domestic abuse charges stemming from an attack on his former girlfriend while their children watched. Had Mayweather not taken the plea bargain, he would have gone to trial on felony charges that could have gotten him up to 34 years in prison.

Wow, not the choice response he needs to be putting out there right now with a pending lawsuit for similar actions against Jackson. But I guess any press is good press with an underwhelming PPV card around the corner.

Floyd is just lucky there's no video evidence of his numerous assaults on women.   Otherwise he'd be doing a lot more than 2 months in jail.

Floyd is lucky that nobody cares about boxing or he would be finished too.

Given his history, his stance isn't surprising but stating it publicly doesn't make it any less dumb. What are they paying that Kelly Swanson person for? <_<

I know Floyd wants to take SRR's title as the GOAT boxer, but I think he's doing a better job of surpassing Ray at beating up women instead.

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

Where is Michelle Beadle to shit on Kelly?   She shit all over Stephen A. Smith for him bringing up that women hit men too, but she's ok with a woman sticking up for a man and working for him despite him repeatedly slapping the shit out of females?  

Kelly appears to be a sellout to her own gender IMO.

Yeah, I'd say she's a sellout in general.

He stuck up for Goodell yesterday on First Take.  I don't get it how Smith thinks that Roger's job should be safe.  At the very least, his job security needs to be questioned.
