    From The New York Times:

    A law enforcement official says he sent a video of Ray Rice punching his then-fiancee to an NFL executive three months ago, while league officers have insisted they 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."


    http://www.nytimes.com/aponline/2014...ice-video.html

    If this story is accurate, the NFL Commissioner not only failed to carry out due diligence in looking into the matter, but spun the story once the video became public to shift the blame from his initial failure to impose adequate punishment.
    ...which surprises me, because he had to know it would eventually come out that they had it.
    If you claim sexual harassment to be wrong, yet you defend anyone on your side for any reason,
    then you are a hypocrite and everything you say on the matter is just babble.

    Busybodies? What a pathetic attempt to defend this piece of crap.

    He plays a sport. Sports do not produce a product. They only produce entertainment for sports fans. If the sports fans are discussed with your bullying of women you have lost your sales value. Your team does not wanting you around and hurt the other players and organization sales.

    I guess Rice and you learned something called responsibility about your actions. Your momma isn't here to tell you that its the media's fault for you slugging the mother of your child.

    Why did Rice get a sweet deal?
    That's the million dollar question. Why isn't anyone else concerned that the justice system failed? The justice system is supposed to protect society; the NFL isn't.

    The justice system acted according to established guidelines.

    Well, I'm starting to think people think that Goodell himself hit her in that elevator. The NFL isn't supposed to be in charge of punishment, but this seems to be a nationality calamity that the NFL didn't "act" more than they did. Why are people getting all worked up about Goodell, the NFL, and who knew what when. In other words - who cares?

    IMO, this latest news, particularly the fact that the AP heard the voicemail, is deeply troubling.

    It has seemed to me for a while that there has been an undercurrent of media frustration with Goodell. They couldn't lay a glove on him. Now they have a chance, and they've gone full hyena.

    I just stared a thread. Guess who is going after him now? Congress.
    Rep. John Conyers Jr. (Mich.), House Judiciary Committee Ranking Member
    Rep. Jerrold Nadler (N.Y.)
    Rep. Luis Gutierrez (Ill.)
    Rep. Zoe Lofgren (Calif.)
    Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee (Texas)
    Rep. Cedric L. Richmond (La.)
    Rep. Henry C. "Hank" Johnson Jr. (Ga.)
    Rep. Steve Cohen (Tenn.)
    Rep. Judy Chu (Calif.)
    Rep. Karen Bass (Calif.)
    Rep. Suzan K. DelBene (Wash.)
    Rep. Hakeem Jeffries (N.Y.)

    I guess Hank Johnson is taking a break from watching Guam in anticipation of it capsizing.
