“We begin tonight with the unavoidable and simple truth that intentionally, or by neglect, the Atlantic County, NJ, District Attorney’s Office, the Baltimore Ravens, the National Football League, and Commissioner Roger Goodell have conducted a cover-up of Ray Rice’s assault on his then-fiancée on Feb. 15th”
And just like that, Keith Olbermann went off on one of his classic rants about current events. This one, however, went a step further than usual when he demanded that Roger Goodell should “leave or be expelled from his current position”.
This makes Roger Goodell look like a real asshole.
TMZ obtained the full video of the elevator assault by Ray Rice on his then fiancé Janay Palmer and it is terrible. The video starts by showing the couple outside waiting for the elevator. They get on and Rice appears to take a swing at Palmer. When Palmer takes a few steps towards him to retaliate, she walks right into a hard left cross from the running back.
From Cleveland.com today, it is being reported that Cleveland Browns suspended receiver Josh Gordon will be selling cars in Randolph, Ohio.

I couldn’t think of a better way to explain just how awesome the brand new Bright Football Complex is at Texas A&M.
The House That Johnny Built has one of the most incredible locker rooms you will see in college football complete with a barber shop and TVs in the mirrors in the bath room. Bascially anything you could think of that would fit in the $20 million-plus budget.
The World Wide Leader doesn’t seem too high on Nick Saban and the Crimson Tide this year. The pre-season number 2 (without knowing who the starting quarterback is) is being given 26 points by the brain trust at ESPN.
Where the hell do I dump every single dollar I can find into a bet with this line?
Better yet, how about if I win, Skip Bayless and Stephen A. Smith have to leave the network? They can stay in television, just nothing above QVC or the Home Shopping Network.
During the end of an almost four hour rain delay, Cleveland Indians infielder Mike Aviles called up manager Terry Francona to ask permission to do a traditional tarp slide.
“I asked him if we could,” Aviles said of his brief chat with Francona. “He didn’t really say, ‘No,’ but he didn’t really say, ‘Yeah.’ I didn’t hear a, ‘No.’ It was like a, ‘Maybe.’ It counts. You’ve just got to read between the lines.”
Rex Ryan has introduced a new drill to the New York Jets training came.
Dizzy Bat Race.
Yep, that same dizzy bat race that is used to have drunken fun is now being used to train professional athletes. For what, though? Perhaps Rex wants his players to be able to play concussed?
