Do You Believe Him?

I heard commissioner Roger Goodell’s comments today:

He’s sorry.

The same mistakes can never be repeated

And unfortunately, he’s not quitting.

Sad. It’s even more sad that ESPN, in an rare turn towards journalism did an “Outside the Lines” report almost completely discrediting an NFL franchise — the Baltimore Ravens and owner, Steve Bisciotti.  According to the OTL report:

– Four sources said Ravens executives, including Bisciotti, Cass and Newsome, urged Goodell and other league executives to give Rice no more than a two-game suspension..

– Rice’s lawyer told a Ravens representative the “video was ‘f—ing horrible’ and that it was clear ‘Ray knocked her the f— out.'”

– when asked by the (Baltimore) Sun whether the (inside elevator) video matched what Rice had told them months earlier, Newsome conceded that it had.

Rice admitted to Goodell he had punched his wife; something Goodell claims Rice didn’t say. But we all know Goodell brings the hammer when he believes someone lies to him. 2 games wasn’t a hammer.

Like we just said, Goodell doesn’t like it when someone lies to him. Evidently, Goodell doesn’t mind telling a whopper when it comes to saving his own skin.

Goodell and Biscotti are just trying to save their own asses. Today’s press conference didn’t help either one of them.

About bittersportspills

I love sports. I don't love the hype, homerism, ratings talk, self-important egomaniacs, bias or any of the other nonsense you get with the national media. Nor will you get the two clowns on sports talk radio who stage phony arguments. It doesn't make it entertaining. It makes it time to turn on your iPod and jam instead of listening to white noise generators. This is the sports blog for you, the ones who don't like everything Los Angeles or New York. Just because the sporting media is based there doesn't mean we have to like their teams. We do treat them fairly, though. That means if one of those cities has an average QB who plays particularly well...we'll note it. If they're garbage, we'll say so. Instead of crying "why, why, why" like a certain sports media homer did in his radio broadcast. This isn't my job...I have a real one. Nevertheless, I'll post here when I make an observation. Common sense in sports is nearly dead. Now we're attempting to bring it back.
