That Ray Rice press conference did not go over well with people

The best thing about the NFL is the excitement lasts all year long. Weather it's a drive by or a beat down, we can always root for our favorite players.
Ray Rice held a press conference Friday, marking the Baltimore Ravens running back's first public comments since his arrest on assault charges stemming from a February incident in which he allegedly struck his then-fiancee, Janey Palmer, and knocked her to the ground in an Atlantic City casino.
The press conference, tucked in right about the time America was headed home for its Memorial Day weekend, might have gone unnoticed had it not offended just about everybody watching. Rice apologized several times to several people, but most of what he said left the public and media shaking their heads.
First, he started with his apology. But even that went awry, as his owner, general manager and coach got the first mention and he referred to the incident as a "situation me and my wife were in":
He then managed to find about the worst analogy possible to sum up a situation in which one is allegedly knocked down by one's partner:
"Failure is ... It's not getting knocked down, it's not getting back up."
Palmer, now married to Rice, also offered an apology:
"I deeply regret the role I played in the incident that night."
