And the NFL just released a statement saying that they hadn't seen the video until today.Ray Rice belongs in jail. That is all.
So was swearinger! And for the first time in what seems like 3 or 4 seasons, their special teams came to play!JJ Watt was an absolute monster yesterday. RGIII didn't stand a chance. Good start for Houston.
The Bears are bad when Cutler makes mistakes. They have no defense.
"I am sorry that my face ran into his fist and that my actions might cost the Ravens a shot at the playoffs this year. It won't happen again."Same with the Ravens. They're all full of BS.
I still can't believe they marched that woman out for a press conference and had HER apologize.
That video is ****ing outrageous.wow I am speechless after watching that video... what a horrible situation. I feel terrible for her first of all, after publicly making excuses for this Piece of ******..... Second of all with the power and the reach the NFL has there is no way they never saw this video until now. TMZ is a tiny blip on the radar compared to the juggernaut that the NFL is, give me a break!
This thing was mishandled from the beginning and they are scrambling to save face now. I'm sure they released that statement so they can now use that as an excuse to re-open the case.... If that leads to them doing the right thing and at minimum suspending this idiot for the whole year then I'm ok with it.
They just saved Goodell's ass.
They released him because the video went public and exposed their cover-up.Did they release him because of the video or the backlash from the video. They didn't seem to care about it months ago.
But Goodell was taking it from all sides today, the Ravens did him a favor by doing Goodell's job today. Even tho the Ravens should have done this months ago.I doubt it. He's made the owners more money, especially under the last CBA. He's not going anywhere.
Surprised the Ravens acted so quickly. Good move.
I think there are differing views.Did they release him because of the video or the backlash from the video. They didn't seem to care about it months ago.
While I understand the 'spin' that was given about her 'attacking him first' etc., there was no way to watch the 1st video and NOT know what went on in that elevator. The body language of Rice said it all.I think there are differing views.
According to some, the Ravens may not have seen the video. Apparently, there were people on the Ravens who thought that she attacked him and he was defending himself - and that was the only reason the team stood behind him. And once the video came out the players (and management) were ticked off that Rice lied to them.
I also read somewhere that the NFL may have lied to reporters about seeing the video. They were under the impression (maybe from Rice's girlfriend) that the video would actually back up his story - that she hit him first.
What a colossal cluster fu**
Oh, you're definitely preaching to the choir.While I understand the 'spin' that was given about her 'attacking him first' etc., there was no way to watch the 1st video and NOT know what went on in that elevator. The body language of Rice said it all.
Besides, I don't care if she attacked him with a switchblade and ninja stars, the guy is a pro football player... he can't subdue a young woman without punching her lights out and dragging her ass out of the elevator?
So TMZ was sitting on this full video and just released it this morning? Why did they wait so long to show it.
