I'm not even sure what constitutes punishment anymore....

Ray Rice hits female, caught on camera, career over.

Joe Mixon hits female, caught on camera, evolves into star RB.

There is NO perfect example of what happens.

I think the situations here were different. Ray Rice's altercation was sort of swept under the rug by the league until the video surfaced. This forced the league's hands who needed to save face. It's also been stated that Rice lied to the NFL about what happened. To put this in perspective, one day after Rice was indicted on 3rd degree aggravated assault, he married the woman he hit. This means that she could invoke spousal privilege and wouldn't have to testify against him. So it basically means the whole case is pointless.

In the case of Joe Mixon the video showed him getting ready to leave, the woman engaging him, pushing him, then striking him first, then he retaliated. Not advocating the behavior just pointing out the differences.

Perhaps. I doubt she got as much as one would expect, especially given the evidence. The settlement was done so that it didn't hurt his draft stock any more than it already did. Pay now or pay more later. Mixon came out on top in this case.

Yikes. Well there is an old saying, "Play stupid games, win stupid prizes."
