    If the Sponsors act, then we'd see a change, certainly but what will the arbitration uncover that the public doesn't already know?

    We know the NFL was sent the security footage of Ray knocking out Janay Rice. We know that once the video went public Roger went into full douche mode and indefinitely suspended Rice, and we know that everything Goodell has done since then has been backtracking and attempting to cover his own ass. If the calls for his dismissal as Commissioner fell on deaf ears before, what will be enough to get him fired this time around?

    Honestly, I hope the Arbitration reveals that Goodell is a scum bag that kicks trick or treaters in the face and/or other horrible personality traits.

    We know the Casino sent the elevator footage to the NFL office, and we know Roger Goodell was told about what happened in the Elevator between Ray and Janay Rice. It's been clear since the start of this whole thing Roger Goodell knew full well of the incident and acted poorly, and because of that he should be fired.

    But the only people who can do anything about Goodell are the owners, and if the owners continue to make a profit despite Roger's shortcomings, they'll stick with him.

    Goodell claims Rice lied to him and he was unaware of the video.

    What I have read, Goodell said Rice ambiguously described to him. Source

    Then again, the article I listed didn't name the sources so this can be suspect as well but seeing as Ray told the Raven's front office and his coach about the incident I don't see why he wouldn't do the same for Goodell?

    However, in his Friday news conference, Goodell said information Rice gave him in their meeting was “inconsistent” with what he eventually saw on security video, although Goodell did not elaborate.

    "Outside the Lines" quoted four sources in September who said that Rice had told Goodell he struck Janay -- a claim Goodell has denied, saying that Rice's account to him in the June 16 meeting was "ambiguous." Goodell spent more than two hours testifying Wednesday.

    The independent arbitration is to discover exactly who knew what when.

    I personally don't think Adrian Peterson did anything wrong. As far as genuine child beating that I knew as genuine, then probably not.

    Peterson (finally) disagrees.

    In an exclusive interview with USA Today published Thursday night, suspended Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson expressed remorse for injuring his 4-year-old son and vowed never to use physical discipline on one of his children again.

    "I won't ever use a switch again," Peterson told USA Today in his first extensive public remarks since being indicted for reckless or negligent injury to a child. "There's different situations where a child needs to be disciplined as far as timeout, taking their toys away, making them take a nap. There's so many different ways to discipline your kids."...

    "No one knows how I felt when I turned my child around after spanking him and seeing what I had left on his leg," Peterson said. "No one knows that Dad sat there and apologized to him, hugged him and told him that I didn't mean to do this to you and how sorry I was.

    Peterson is doing as he feels he must. I don't care if he disagrees with my assessment. I don't think he did anything wrong. The first grand jury didn't either.

    Citation? You will not find one supporting your statement, beyond an incorrect headline.



    On Saturday, Montgomery County First Assistant District Attorney Phil Grant addressed the media, saying the D.A.'s office takes all allegations of child abuse very seriously. Grant said a single grand jury decided to indict Peterson after reviewing evidence for a significant number of weeks.
