It seems like everybody has had their say on the Ray Rice saga, but some perhaps shouldn't of opened their mouths. Paul George and Floyd Mayweather Jr have both had their say on the infamous video that surfaced this week, and both have quickly apologized for their "stupid" comments. With all the bad press going around at the moment, do NFL, NBA and boxing stars need to grow up, learn how to act and watch their fists and their mouth?

Rice was cut by the Baltimore Ravens this week after a video of him hitting this then wife-to-be surfaced, however, it seemed like Indiana Pacers' George defended him. On Thursday morning George tweeted "If you in a relationship and a woman hit you first and attacking YOU...Then you obviously ain't beating HER. Homie made A bad choice!" After receiving abuse he quickly posted again saying "I don't condone hitting women or think it's coo BUT if SHE ain't trippin then I ain't trippin...Lets keep it moving lol let that man play!"

Can any good come of Twitter for sports stars? Mayweather joined George, too, but has since claimed he was late to seeing the video because of his busy training schedule (he fights Saturday). Mayweather hit out at the NFL, saying they should have stuck with the 2 game suspension they first handed Rice, but now he's admitted he's in the wrong. Floyd explained "I was just getting word from people that there was a video out there. I didn't know because I'm training for a fight. If I offended anyone, I apologize."

Is it time for professional sports to grab their sport stars and shake the sense in to them? It seems like the top-level sports stars are in the news for more wrong than right these days, and many are wondering, will they ever grow up?
