NFL commissioner Goodell does not rule out Ray Rice return to football: ‘He has paid the price’

Published

on

National Football League Commissioner Roger Goodell suggested he would consider reinstating former Baltimore Ravens running back Ray Rice in an interview with CBS News.

CBS This Morning host Norah O’Donnell posted statements from her interview with Goodell Tuesday evening, including one remark by Goodell saying he felt Rice “has paid the price” for his apparent attack against then-fiancee Janay Palmer this past February:

Rice was “suspended indefinitely” from the league and fired from the Ravens after TMZ posted security camera footage of him knocking Palmer out in a New Jersey casino hotel.

At the time, Rice was serving a two-game suspension. Prosecutors in New Jersey allowed Rice to enter a “pretrial intervention” program that, upon completion, would dismiss the third-degree aggravated assault charge he faced.

That website’s executive producer, Harvey Levin, subsequently accused the league of knowing about the footage and “turning a blind eye” to it. TMZ said it was told by casino personnel that the league never asked to see the video or if it even existed.

But Goodell rejected the accusation in his interview with O’Donnell.

“We had not seen any video tape of what occurred in the elevator,” he said. “We assumed that there was a video, we asked for the video, we asked for anything that was pertinent, but we were never granted that opportunity.”

O’Donnell also posted a remark from the commissioner saying TMZ had gone to sources who were not “credible” to get its information:

The interview will be aired Tuesday night and Wednesday morning. An excerpt can be seen below.

Published

MSNBC's Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski busted President Donald Trump's denials about meeting with Iran's leadership without first establishing pre-conditions.

The president strongly suggested that he would commit U.S. troops to a strike on Iran on behalf of Saudi Arabia, which the "Morning Joe" hosts found puzzling, to say the least.

Saudi Arabia oil supply was attacked. There is reason to believe that we know the culprit, are locked and loaded depending on verification, but are waiting to hear from the Kingdom as to who they believe was the cause of this attack, and under what terms we would proceed!

Robert De Niro said Alec Baldwin is so good at playing Donald Trump he wants to punch them both in the face

Published

on

Legendary actor and Donald Trump foe Robert De Niro waited patiently as roasters bashed him before they went after Alec Baldwin. De Niro was mocked mostly for his age. But it was De Niro who had the last laugh.

When it was his turn to bring the funny, De Niro asked simply, "what the f*ck am I doing here?"

"This is like that Moscow hotel room where a bunch of whores pissed all over Donald Trump," he recalled.

When it came time to bash Caitlyn Jenner, De Niro said that there was something off about her, but he couldn't "put his finger in it."

"Yes, you can!" she encouraged.

Published

on

Genius comedian Chris Redd went after Caitlyn Jenner for her Republican support of President Donald Trump.

While Jenner admitted in 2018 that she'd made a mistake, she was a big part of those few LGBTQ willing to support Trump in 2016.

"Hey Caitlyn, you godd*mn hypocrite," Redd began. "You're like, against gay marriage, you voted for Trump, you're like the Auntie Tom of the trans community. I mean, OK, you did open the door for trans people but then you ran in and slammed that sh*t shut behind your flat ass."
