Ray Rice was once a star to the fans of Baltimore. But since a second video was released showing him knocking out his then fiance, Rice has lost its pedestal as the team and fans do whatever they can to separate themselves from any memories of the man they once loved.
After the Baltimore Ravens announced that they will exchange any Ray Rice Jersey with another Jersey, fans took them up on it and decended on the M&T Bank Stadium at 4am today. The line to get their jerseys replaced eventually stretched half a mile.
Fans are allowed to trade in their jerseys today and tomorrow.
Ray Rice was originally banned from playing with the Ravens for two games after an initial video showed him dragging the body of his girlfriend out of an elevator. But since a second video showed him actually knocking out the lady he eventually married, the NFL and the Ravens have issued indefinite suspension from the team and from the league. Rice has since filed an appeal.
