Two days after TMZ released the video of former Baltimore Ravens running back Ray Rice knocking out his then-fiancée and wife, commissioner Roger Goodell is under a lot of pressure.
In a letter to NFL “Chief Executives and Club Presidents,” Goodell stated, “first, we did not see video of what took place inside the elevator until it was publicly released on Monday… Second, on multiple occasions, we asked the proper law enforcement authorities to share with us all relevant information, including any video of the incident… None of the law enforcement entities we approached was permitted to provide any video or other investigatory material to us.”
However, The Associated Press reported that law enforcement did in fact send an NFL executive the video.
If the AP report is true, Goodell will be out of a job very quickly. This story won’t leave the news anytime soon.
