America is known as a "forgiving nation", provided some contrition is shown, professional help is sought and wayward ways are refined..

Ray Rice was gifted with the talent to play in the National Football League. However, he missed all of last year, while suspended by the league for a domestic incident that was captured on video.

It's hard to watch said video. Any man worth his salt knows "you never hit a woman!" He brought it all on himself. Perhaps, he has grown as a man, his wife has forgiven and voters in our poll say, "he deserves a second chance." It was a close outcome with 57.14 percent participants willing to give Ray another shot, however 42.86 percent are not at the moment willing to change their minds about the unfortunate incident.
