In an absolutely unsuspected and unprecedented turn of events, the appeal of Ray Rice’s suspension for his domestic violence incident will be ruled on by a neutral arbitrator rather than NFL commissioner Roger Goodell.
It’d be one thing if Roger Goodell sucked at his job (please don’t suspend me, Anthem Media!) and was paid accordingly. But he’s not.

We’re going to compile some of our favorite non-answers that Roger Goodell gave to tough (and some weak) questions on domestic violence, the Ray Rice scandal, how the NFL will handle these issues going forward and more.
