The NFL and the Baltimore Ravens may have struggled to get access to the video of Ray Rice uppercutting his wife, but according to Adam Schefter, the video had already made its way around circles of NFL players weeks after it happened.
You would have to think at some point somebody here will be in trouble over this. The security guy clearly knew exactly what was going on. Leadership, management, did what it could to conceal and push it through. I think that Ray Rice’s track record helped him here, that they cared about him. They wanted to believe that it was an isolated deal but they knew. There were players who were in Las Vegas a week or two after this incident and I know one player said, “You want to see the videotape of what happened?” So there were players who could see the videotape, yet the Ravens, many of the Ravens, claim they couldn’t see it.
Someone in the Ravens organization is going to pay for this with their job in my opinion.
