Ray Rice.  What a mess all around.  But football goes on, and thank G-d for that.  Won both of my Week 1 match-ups in fantasy.  Hoping for similar results in Week 2.  I also would not mind a similar performance out of my Miami Dolphins and new running back Knowshon Moreno.  This week on FORBES: (1) Armonty Bryant Sustains Two Losses: To Pittsburgh Steelers And Former Agent; (2) Will The NFL’s Indefinite Suspension Of Ray Rice Survive Scrutiny?; (3) Legalized Online Gambling Stays On Hold In California; (4) Terry Pegula Should Have To Sell Sports Agency To Buy The Bills; (5) RantSports Releases Fan Stats Social Mobile Sports App; (6) Ray Rice Discipline Brings To Light Poorly Drafted NFL Collective Bargaining Agreement.

And as always, the weekly wrap-up:
