NEW ROCHELLE, N.Y. -- Despite public outcry, Adolpho Birch, NFL senior vice president of labor policy, said he felt the two-game suspension issued to New Rochelle native Ray Rice for a physical altercation with his now-wife was "appropriate," according to CBS Sports. 

Brich was interviewed on ESPN Radio's "Mike & Mike" on Monday morning, July 28, and said that he felt the punishment handed out to Rice is one that would dissuade other players from engaging in similar activities, CBS Sports reported. 

Critics say the suspension is too light, pointing to players who get suspended for four games after testing positive for marijuana. 

Rice elected not to appeal the suspension, CBS Sports said.

When will some women learn that they are NOT immune to retaliation. We live in a different time. When you raise your hands and strike someone, that someone may raise theirs also and strike back. Those days of gentlemen being nice have gone thanks to the women libbers. You expect men to hold the door for you but you take his job when you get the chance. The next time you raise your hands think about the person at the other end. Think about what they may do. That goes for both male and females.
