Initially suspending Ray Rice for two days was possibly the worst mistake Roger Goodell made.
After the video from TMZ surfaced that horrifically showed Ray Rice beating his fiancé (now wife) in an elevator, the NFL has been under attack. It is unclear what caused the one-sided fight to ensue, however, the NFL barely punished Rice, giving him a lesser suspension than a footballer player who tests positive for Marijuana (now legalized in the great state of Colorado and Washington) would otherwise receive.
The NFL is attempting to have a new "domestic violence policy" in play. Whether the policy is meant to keep the players in check or prevent further controversy to the NFL, we shall see.
