OWINGS MILLS, Md. -- Ray Rice stepped to the microphone, took a deep breath and spoke for 17 minutes about what he called "the biggest mistake of his life." His arrest for domestic violence against his then-fiancee last February is something Rice figures will haunt him long after NFL career has ended. The Baltimore Ravens running back was arrested on assault charges following a Feb. 15 altercation in New Jersey in which he allegedly struck Janay Palmer. Rice has been accepted into a diversion program, which upon completion could lead to the charges being dropped. "My actions that night were totally inexcusable," said Rice, who during Ravens training camp Thursday spoke publicly for the first time since receiving a two-game suspension from the NFL. "My daughter is 2 years old now. One day shes going to know the power of Google. Me having to explain that to her, what happened that night, thats something I have to live with the rest of my life." Rice was referring to a grainy video in which he is shown dragging Palmer, now his wife, from an elevator at an Atlantic City casino. He did not address the incident at an impromptu news conference in May, and although he refused to divulge details on Thursday, he dismissed the notion that he was provoked. "I dont want to keep re-living the incident. Im trying to move forward," he said. "What happened that night was a huge mistake, and thats what Ill keep it at. I dont condone any of my behaviour. I take full responsibility for my actions. My wife can do no wrong." Rice wore a Ravens polo shirt and a pained expression throughout the session. More than a dozen TV cameras were in place, some telecasting the interview live, and several of his teammates stood behind the throng to show their support. Rice, 27, is the teams career leader in total scrimmage yards and ranks behind only Jamal Lewis in total yards rushing. But this press conference wasnt about football. This was about apologizing for actions that he insisted were one of a kind. "It was the first time it ever happened," he said. "Ive never had a problem with domestic abuse. This was a one-time incident." In addition to the two-game suspension, Rice was fined three paychecks totalling more than $500,000. There have been reports that the fine was too light. Rice declined to weigh in on that subject except to say that he would have accepted whatever penalty the NFL deemed fit. "No football games and no money was going to determine what I have to live with the rest of my life. That punishment I received from the NFL, it hurts that I cant play football," he said. "I never planned to appeal any kind of punishment. So whether it was two games, four games, six games, eight games, I was going to own my actions and be a man about it and take whatever was given to me." Rices reputation has likely taken a harder hit than he has ever absorbed on the field. "In some peoples eyes, Ray can do no wrong. Thats something I take pride in," he said. "I know a lot of people out there have lost respect, maybe not like me anymore. But thats my fault. I have to own that. Thats my battle each day." Rice also pleaded with his fans to make smart decisions. "I still have kids out there wearing 27 jerseys, and I just want to tell them that please dont make the mistake I did," he said. "I always talk about one or two bad decisions and your dream can become a nightmare, and I was truly living a nightmare." Rices teammates still support him. "Ive known Ray for a while. Hes a great guy," linebacker Elvis Dumervil said. "Were all human, we all make mistakes." Rice realizes how many people were hurt by his actions. "Thats not who I am as a man. Thats not who my mom raised me to be," he said. "I let her down, I let my wife down, I let my daughter down, I let my wifes parents down, I let the whole Baltimore community down, and I got my teammates here to support me, I let my teammates down. I let so many people down because of 30 seconds of my life that I know I cant take back." Sean Kilpatrick Jersey . Rodgers was ruled out on Friday by Packers head coach Mike McCarthy.

The $145.7-million Tim Hortons Field was slated to open this month, a year before it was to host all 32 mens and womens soccer competitions.

Some will say that Martin is too sensitive while others will say that it is part of the way football is in the locker room. But to have to absorb what was said to him for any rational and intelligent person is too much.The Montreal Impact have opened training camp with a bang. The team has sent midfielder Felipe to the New York Red Bulls for Cameroon international left back Ambroise Oyongo and midfielder Eric Alexander. Its a trade that helps improve our current roster by adding two quality players, while the allocation money and international spot gives us more flexibility within the salary cap and our roster said the Impacts technical director, Adam Braz. The decision to move Felipe was not easy as he`s been with the club since the beginning in MLS. We`d like to thank him for his time with the club over the last few years and we wish him the best of luck in the future. Felipe, 24, was with the Impact since the club moved to MLS. In 93 appearances for the team, Felipe has scored 12 times. With a move to thhe Red Bulls, Felipe is reunited with former Impact manager Jesse Marsch, now boss with NYRB.dddddddddddd In Oyongo, the Impact get a young defender with international experience. The 23-year-old made 13 appearances for the Red Bulls last season, his first in MLS. Oyongo received his first Cameroon cap in the summer of 2013 and is currently with the team at the African Cup of Nations in Equatorial Guinea. He scored the Indomitable Lions only goal in a 1-1 group-stage draw with Mali last week. Alexander, 26, is heading into his sixth season in MLS. Capped twice by the USMNT, Alexander has also spent time with FC Dallas and the Portland Timbers. The Impact will see action on February 24 in the away match of a two-legged CONCACAF Champions League series wih Mexican side Pachuca. ' ' '
