CHARLOTTE, N. Rays Mallex Smith Jersey .C. -- Carolina Panthers Pro Bowl defensive end Greg Hardy has been convicted on two counts of domestic violence and is still playing. Ray McDonald of the San Francisco 49ers also remains active while he is being investigated for abuse allegations. The Panthers and 49ers both say they are following the NFLs lead, waiting for the legal process to run its course. Neither team has provided details of its investigations. The cases have similarities to that of Ray Rice, who was released this week by the Baltimore Ravens and suspended indefinitely by the league after an explicit video surfaced of him hitting his then-fiancee. A law enforcement official told The Associated Press on condition anonymity that he sent a copy of the video to the league in April. The NFL is under scrutiny for its wait-and-see approach in domestic violence cases like Hardys. Judy Harris Kluger, a former New York City judge and now executive director of Sanctuary for Families, is anxious to see how the league handles the two pending cases. "I think the test for the NFL will be what they do with the other people who are charged now," Kluger said. "And I dont imagine theres a videotape of that. What else did the NFL think happened in that elevator? So yes, its a very graphic depiction, and they took the action they took now. But I think all of us will be looking to see what they and other organizations do going forward." While McDonald has not been charged, Hardy has already been convicted on two counts of domestic violence. He has appealed and a hearing is scheduled for Nov. 17. Hardy, one of the stalwarts on the Panthers stout defence, is making $13.1 million this season as teams franchise player. He had four tackles and one sack in Carolinas season-opening victory. Though he has already been found guilty, the league is sticking by its policy to wait until the appeal process has been heard before making any decision on a possible suspension. "The Hardy matter is under review," league spokesman Greg Aiello said. "The case has not been resolved by the court." San Jose police are still actively investigating the Aug. 31 incident involving McDonald and detectives will turn over findings to the Santa Clara District Attorneys office for review, Sgt. Heather Randol, a police spokeswoman said Wednesday. McDonald is scheduled to appear in court on Sept. 15. Though Hardy has appealed his conviction, the Panthers dont have to wait for the NFL to take action. They have the option to bench Hardy -- or release him. The Ravens did not take action, opting to wait for an NFL ruling, though they now say they let their fans down. When asked Wednesday if the Panthers made the right decision allowing Hardy to play, coach Ron Rivera replied, "We are going through the process and while were in the process were not going to comment about the situation. "Its a very tragic situation that is going on and were going from there," Rivera said of the Rice case. "I have a tremendous amount of empathy and respect for the people who are in this situation. Its very difficult." Rivera said Hardy did not practice because he was given a "personal day" Wednesday. Hardy used the time to meet with his attorney. Chris Fialko confirmed in an email that he met with his client but wouldnt elaborate on the specifics of the meeting. Hardy was convicted on July 15 and the victim testified that she was assaulted by him in March at his apartment after a night of drinking. She said Hardy threw her down on sofa full of guns and tossed her into the shower. She also said he threatened to kill her and put his hands around her neck. The 6-foot-4, 275-pound lineman was sentenced to 18 months probation and a suspended 60-day jail sentence. Mecklenburg County Judge Rebecca Tin imposed the sentence after 11 hours of testimony, saying "the court is entirely convinced Hardy is guilty of assault on a female and communicating threats." Those punishments were suspended pending Hardys appeal of the conviction. Panthers owner Jerry Richardson and general manager Dave Gettleman declined interview requests Wednesday through the teams public relations staff. Though NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell was in North Carolina on Wednesday, Aiello said he did not meet with Hardy. The commissioner spent Wednesday at a high school in Wake Forest, discussing the leagues Heads Up football initiative in an invite-only affair. Goodell, who admitted he "got it wrong" in the Rice case, originally suspended the running back for two games. He has since implemented a new policy in which a player is suspended six games if convicted for domestic violence and suspended indefinitely for a second offence. Hardys agent Drew Rosenhaus declined to address how the leagues stiffer penalties against domestic violence could impact his clients future with the team. Rays Jesus Sucre Jersey .

Atleticos march toward its first title since 1996 hit a bump when it lost 2-0 at Levante, although its city rival failed to make up much ground as Madrid needed a spectacular injury-time equalizer from Cristiano Ronaldo to salvage a 2-2 draw at home against Valencia. Barcelona had written off its title defence after drawing 2-2 with Getafe on Saturday, but its rivals stumbles have put it right back in the hunt. Barcelona trails Atletico by three points, while Madrid was left five points behind with an extra game to play after Ronaldo deftly used the sole of his right boot to turn in a cross in the 92nd minute. "It was a tough round for all three at the top and the league is more wide open than ever," said Madrid coach Carlo Ancelotti. "I always said it would come down to the last game." Madrids draw meant that Atletico can clinch the title if it takes four points from its last two games because it holds the head-to-head tiebreaker over Madrid if they end up level on points. Atletico hosts Malaga next weekend before finishing the season at Barcelonas Camp Nou. "Now the league is that much more interesting," Atletico coach Diego Simeone said after his teams nine-round winning run came to a halt at Ciutat de Valencia stadium. Levante pressed Atletico early and was rewarded when Papakouly Diops corner kick hit Atletico left back Filipe Luis in the chest. The ball bounced out of reach of scrambling goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois before settling into the net in the seventh. Atletico improved after bringing on substitutes Arda Turan and Adrian Lopez after halftime but conceded again when striker David Barral beat Courtois in the 69th. Far from bemoaning the setback, Simeone said that defeat was "the best thing that could happen" to his team to keep it focused on the run-in not only to the league title but also to the Champions League final with Madrid on May 24, a week after the league concludes. &qquot;Three weeks of high intensity and emotion await us," Simeone said. Rays Wade Boggs Jersey. "This is the ideal moment for my men, for my players. We have three finals ahead of us and we have to concentrate on the first of those against Malaga next Sunday." Four days after its commanding 3-1 victory at Chelsea to reach the final of the Champions League, Atletico was brought down by the modest Levante side that has outperformed expectations thanks to coach Joaquin Caparros defensive focus and Keylor Navass goalkeeping. "We didnt want to mess up a title for anyone, I hope they (Atletico) win it," Barral said. "We want to finish the league in the best fashion we can." The match was marred at the finish by a group of Atletico fans who directed racist jeers at Diop. The player from Senegal responded by doing a dance. He later called for an end to such racist displays. Valencia arrived to the Bernabeu after its demoralizing exit from the Europa League semifinals when it conceded an injury-time goal to Sevilla on Thursday, while Madrid was flying high from its rout of Bayern Munich in the Champions League. Valencia turned to a set piece to grab the lead in the 44th when defender Jeremy Mathieu got in front of Raphael Varane inside the six-yard box to head in a corner kick. Ancelotti sent on Angel Di Maria at halftime to spark Madrids attack, and the forward lobbed a ball for Ronaldo to flick on for Sergio Ramos to nod home in the 59th and add to his two goals against Bayern. Valencia wasnt done, however, and Dani Parejo drove in a squared pass from Feghouli in the 65th after Seydou Keita had won the ball in midfield to start the move. Ronaldo then appeared to save Madrid from a costly defeat by flicking in Di Marias cross to take his league-leading tally to 31 goals this season. He reached 50 goals in all competitions for the fourth straight season. Elsewhere, Ramon Azeezs last-gasp goal gave 10-man Almeria a 3-2 win at home over relegated Real Betis to help pull his team out of the drop zone, while Sevilla drew 0-0 at home with Villarreal.
