Baltimore Ravens running back Ray Rice was released from the team today and also suspended indefinitely by the NFL. The video below surfaced courtesy of TMZ Sports, and promptly forced the Ravens and the NFL to act I suppose.
He hit her with a punch and she then hit her head on the railing on the wall, knocking her out for close to FOUR minutes. Also, notice how nonchalantly he stands over her while she’s out, barely trying to move her or see if she was OK.
The Ravens or NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell said they did not see this video before handing down the 2 game suspension a few weeks back. However, the NFL stated that DID not see the video above until today.
How on earth could the video of him dragging her out of the elevator be seen WITHOUT the footage of him knocking her out?
There’s not way because there are multiple reports out there that people saw the video of Rice knocking her then fiancee out BEFORE the league handed down a 2 game suspension.
So if those people saw the footage, how on earth did the NFL not see the footage or even ask to see if it was available?
Hmmm….somebody has some explaining to do Roger Goodell.
UPDATE: Ray’s wife Janay has released a statement following her husband’s indefinite suspension by the Baltimore Ravens.
