|Longtime commissioner to the NFL may soon shake after it was revealed that the knockout punch on Janay Palmer by ex-NFL runner Ray Rice was seen by some higher ups.|
The scandal surrounding the NFL "not knowing" about running back Ray Rice's assault on his then fiance (now wife) at an Atlantic City casino is the talk of the nation.
The junk food media is picking sides once again in this debate over domestic violence in the sports industry with some agitators calling pairing it with "O.J. Simpson" and "the bitch deserved it".
Earlier this year, Ray Rice and his girlfriend Janay Palmer were arrested and charged with assault after a physical altercation at Revel Casino in Atlantic City, New Jersey. Celebrity news website TMZ posted a video of Rice dragging Palmer's body out of an elevator after apparently knocking her out.
The celebrity agitators obtained even more damning video of the punch that could be felt across the bandwidth. The blow knocked her unconscious. The incident became a prominent controversy after TMZ released a video of the encounter, which led to an NFL policy change regarding how it handles domestic violence cases.

When the video hit the internet, the world was lit up. The NFL had no choice but to lay the hammer on Rice. First his contract with the Ravens was terminated. The league suspended Rice indefinitely.
The grand jury had indicted Rice on third-degree aggravated assault, with a possible jail sentence of three to five years and a fine of up to $15,000.
Roger Goodell the commissioner of the NFL talked to CBS News agitator Norah O'Donnell about the revelation of the video.
Goodell denies that he's seen the video and hopes that this experience along with numerous other scandals will eventually die down. He is drafting new rules for NFL stars, coaches, owners and fans.
What's your thoughts on this scandal?
Be warned the video is disturbing.
