Why some women are proudly wearing Ray Rice jerseys

Some Baltimore Ravens fans are standing by Ray Rice at the first game of the season since Rice was suspended for attacking his now-wife. Many fans attending the game wore his number 27 jersey, including women.

In an interview with CNN's Erin Burnett, Ravens fan Lauren Brown explains why she continues to wear the disgraced football player's jersey.

    Unforgivable – that's the name of the movie that describes an abuser and his recovery. Dr. Paul Headstrom of Life Skills International has answers to how boys and girls grow up to be abusers and how their children do the same. There is a method to stop the abuse.

    That interview with the NFL players union guy was beyond silly and stupid! He will be the next politician running for office because he knows how to not answer questions and just constantly spew the talking points. I am embarrassed for him as an NFL fan. Wow.....shameful....so shameful!

    Shame on him!!! And shame on the NFL for the covering up of their issues that is so obvious!

    Instead of basing the NFL how about blame the Justice System who is actually in charge of punishing those who commit crimes!! And instead of spending hours and hours following around Ray Rice and talking about him. Maybe spend some time talking to young women and teaching them not to stay in violent, abusive relationships. Again CNN missing an opportunity to do something good for society and instead going for the easy story... Shame on you CNN
