Since the beginning of the Ray Rice saga, there has been a public outcry for the NFL owners to fire Roger Goodell. Despite little evidence that the owners would take such action, ProFootballtalk.com has a report that at least one owner could see Goodell keeping his job in the short-term, but losing it in the long run.
After 11 seasons in the NFL, James Harrison decided to retire on September 5th. After just 18-days, that retirement didn’t last long.
For the first time in more than a week, NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell is publicly addressing his handling of the player domestic abuse scandal.
Here are five amusing events moments in sports this week.
Commissioner Roger Goodell says that “over the past several weeks, we have seen all too much of the NFL doing wrong; that starts with me.”

Carolina Panthers Defensive End Greg Hardy, awaiting a jury trial on domestic violence charges, has agreed to go on the Exempt/Commissioner’s Permission list.
The Steelers dealt with news of Ray Rice head-on, having to play in Baltimore last Thursday night. Since that time, Minnesota benched star running back Adrian Peterson for an indictment for “reckless or negligent injury to a child”-his 4-year-old son who he hit with a switch. Carolina’s Greg Hardy was also benched for domestic abuse charges.
For just the second time in the past 11 regular-season games between Pittsburgh and Baltimore, the outcome was decided by more than a field goal, as the Ravens crushed the Steelers 26-6 last night at home.
Former Steeler Hines Ward is weighing in on the Ray Rice situation, in an interview with TMZ.
As the NFL has appointed former FBI Director Robert Mueller III to conduct an investigation into the league’s handling of the Ray Rice case, Pittsburgh Steelers owner Art Rooney II and New York Giants owner John Mara have released a joint statement in which they detail their involvement in the proceedings.
I’m afraid, however, Rooney has found himself in a no-win situation; where there’s no way he can look good.
Rapoport says the biggest question is who saw the video? If this unamed woman didn’t pass it on…she will become the scapegoat. If she did pass it on…what then?
The NFL says former FBI director Robert S. Mueller III will conduct a probe into how the NFL handled evidence as it investigated domestic violence claims against former Ravens running back Ray Rice.
A law enforcement official says he sent a video of Ray Rice punching his then-fiancee to an NFL executive three months ago, while league officers have insisted they didn’t see the violent images until this week.
