Ray Rice Not Going Away Quietly, Wants Us To Know TMZ Elevator Video Was Not The Director's Cut
As you know, Ray Rice is appealing his indefinite suspension by the NFL, and his team has come up with a pretty clever gambit. They're expected to contend, reports ESPN's Adam Schefter, that the NFL suspended Rice on information obtained from a TMZ version of the elevator video that was heavily edited.
Legal sources told Schefter that the TMZ tape of Rice hitting his then-fiancee was a cleaned-up, whittled down and condensed version of the events that took place in the Atlantic City casino elevator.
Rice's side is expected to argue that the NFL suspended the former Baltimore Ravens running back indefinitely off an edited videotape that was not the extended version.
One might say that unless they put a CGI version of Rice in there hitting his fiancee, this isn't going to work. But it just may force the NFL to admit that it did see the extended version of the video before it suspended Rice. And that would open a whole new batch of questions.
Anyway, Robert Mueller, who was appointed by the NFL to investigate this whole thing, is supposedly going to look into this as well, reports ESPN.
Meanwhile, the loonies are finally out in force (what took you guys so long?). Janay Rice was beaten up because she was "cohabiting", said an official with The American Family Association.
“Ray Rice and his then fiancée were living in sin…”, said Bryan Fischer, Director of Issues Analysis with the AFA. "They were violating God’s standard for sexual intimacy and for marital intimacy. And one of the things that social research tells us the single most dangerous place on the planet, for a woman, is when she is cohabiting, not married, to a guy. If you want reasons why he did it, knocked out ion a casino elevator, that's all the reason you need.”
