Fans of the Baltimore Ravens have been put through quite a lot in the last few days courtesy of Ray Rice.

The now former Ravens Runningback has brought a lot of bad publicity to the franchize over the summer but in the past few days, he has stepped it up a notch.

It all started after allegations that he had struck his wife in an elevator in an Atlantic City hotel, which prompted a ban from the NFL.

However, in the last few days, TMZ has released the video of the incident which has sent shock waves throughout the NFL.

Shortly after the release, the Ravens organization officially released Rice and even less time after that, the NFL imposed an indefinite ban on the Runningback.

So it looks by all appearances that Rice's NFL Career is well and truly over, but he hasn't left the league without one final impact.

I'm not referring to the NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell, who has come under a lot of criticism for not banning him indefinitely when the issue first came about.

I am in fact referring to the Baltimore Ravens fans who he has let down, causing them to see their franchize's name dragged through the mud and even worse all of their Rice merchandise seemingly useless.

But there is finally some good news for the Ravens fans as the announcement was made on Tuesday that this Sunday, they will be able to exchange their Rice Jerseys.

The team are offering the fans the opportunity to exchange their jerseys at the stadium stores as a rebate.

Details have yet to be announced about how the fans will be rebated but clearly the fans will be eager to take them up on their offer.

A bad week for Baltimore

Needless to say, the last two days have been fairly bad for the Ravens fans as they saw their team lose their opening game of the new NFL season on Sunday.

The Ravens crashed to a 23-16 home defeat at the hands of the Cincinnati Bengals on Sunday, and that was just the start.

Since the video of Rice's indiscretion was released on Monday and the subsequent announcements about his future, it has been an eventful 48 hours for the Ravens fanbase.

It seems that almost everyone in the NFL has an opinion on how the situation was handled and most are against the Ravens for not releasing Rice instantly.

This issue seems to have left consequences for everyone that will not be easily or quickly fixed but surely every Ravens fan and everyone associated with the franchize, will be hoping their part in the ordeal is now over.
