    AP Newsbreak: Source says Rice video sent to NFL (in April)

    AP Newsbreak: Source says Rice video sent to NFL

    A law enforcement official says he sent a video of Ray Rice punching his then-fiancee to an NFL executive five months ago, while Commissioner Roger Goddell has insisted the league didn't see the violent images until this week.

    ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. —

    A law enforcement official says he sent a video of Ray Rice punching his then-fiancee to an NFL executive five months ago, while Commissioner Roger Goddell has insisted the league didn't see the violent images until this week.
    The person played The Associated Press a 12-second voicemail from an NFL office number on April 9 confirming the video arrived. A female voice expresses thanks and says: "You're right. It's terrible."
    The law enforcement official, speaking to the AP on condition of anonymity because of the ongoing investigation, says he had no further communication with any NFL employee and can't confirm anyone watched the video. The person said he was unauthorized to release the video but shared it unsolicited, because he wanted the NFL to have it before deciding on Rice's punishment.

    I wonder how far up it goes before someone takes the fall.

    Interesting. Lots of anonymity in that story.

    Why is nobody outraged that the state of NJ knew what happened and let him off with "intervention"? The NFL isn't the police or the justice system.

    Interesting too that this is all keeping the Revel in the news one week after it closed.

    This seems to lend support to the idea that Rice was suspended not because the NFL was outraged at domestic violence, but rather because the public was outraged and demanded it. If true, Goodell's career is really going to be in jeopardy. In a press conference Harbaugh denied any knowledge of the tape so I wonder what is really going on.

    He bloody well should. I won't, however, put money on it. And if he does, would the assumption be then that no one else in NFL viewed the video 5 months ago? Not likely. How many others and who else has been sitting on the information?

    Could be.

    I suspect that he didn't have much choice but to allow Baltimore and the NFLPA to act on the matter first so I'm not going to hammer him right off.

    One anonymous LEO official sent the video (unauthorized?) to one anonymous NFL official. What "ongoing investigation" is involved? It is my understanding that this past domestic violence event has been resolved by the NJ justice system. What is apparent is that the NFL will do as little as possible to disrupt its revenue stream and will act only if it is deemed to be a financial benefit to do so. If convicted felons are permitted to play in the NFL then why not those given PBJ deals for lessor offenses? After announcing an "official" NFL policy of a six game suspension for a domestic violence first offense we see that policy ignored due to "public outcry" in this (and only this?) case.

    Just curious - on what grounds would/should he lose his job? I keep seeing that but I'm trying to understand why. And who can fire him?
