Is it now Double-Jeopardy for the NFL or should it be “Final Jeopardy” for Roger Goodell???(Should the Comish quit?)
Many sports and even non-sports fans are speaking out and they are calling with fervor for the commissioner of the National Football League, Roger Goodell, to step down and give up his position as the top sports official, a job that pays Goodell a reportedly 40 million dollars a year….
The NFL says they had never seen the complete Ray Rice tape until Monday and there is a law enforcement official that says he sent the full video to the NFL offices back in April of this year…There has been total denial from the league and from the league leader Roger Goodell and now the tale of the tape says the tape was in the league offices back in April….
Is is time for the Commissioner to step down and walk away from his position of power??? What if anything can be done to make this issue right? What will be the end result when all of this is sorted out and can the commissioner be trusted, as he take this league(the NFL) down the road from here, for now???
ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. — A law enforcement official says he sent a video of Ray Rice punching his then-fiancée to an NFL executive five months ago, while league executives have insisted they didn’t see the violent images until this week.
The official 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 NFL has repeatedly said it asked for but could not obtain the video of Rice hitting Janay Palmer — who is now his wife — at an Atlantic City casino in February.
The league says it has no record of the video and that no one in the league office had seen it until it was released by TMZ on Monday. Asked about the voicemail Wednesday, NFL officials repeated their assertion that no league official had seen the video before Monday.
