Huge line forms for Ray Rice jersey exchange at Ravens’ stadium
A very long line formed Friday morning at the Baltimore Ravens’ M&T Bank Stadium for the Ray Rice jersey exchange, the organization’s two-day event allowing fans who purchased the disgraced former running back’s jersey to replace it with another player’s digits.
A line began to form in advance of the 8 a.m. start time Friday. Transactions will be handled until 3 p.m. each day, or until every official Ray Rice NFL jersey on Earth gets eradicated.
According to the Ravens website, a licensing expert representing the NFL will be on hand to verify that jerseys qualify for exchange to snuff out any horrible persons who had planned on presenting fabricated Ray Rice jerseys, trading them in for good guys, then selling the new jersey for profit. Fans who purchased bootlegs are out of luck.
Some photos showing the line, which will now cost people at the back about two hours:

The NFL suspended Rice from the league indefinitely (after initially banning him for two games) after TMZ unearthed the security video of Rice knocking his then-fiancee unconscious with a punch inside an elevator at the Revel Casino in Atlantic City. The NFLPA is currently appealing the league’s indefinite ban.
