Steve Bisciotti, Roger Goodell Must Answer for Cover-Up of Rice Evidence | Bleacher Report

(excerpt) Per a bombshell of an investigation by ESPN reporters Don Van Natta Jr. and Kevin Van Valkenburg, Baltimore Ravens owner Steve Bisciotti thought his personal attachment to Ray Rice was more important than his team, the NFL, Janay Palmer or the law—and nobody had the guts to stand up to him.

In repeated acts of supreme arrogance, Bisciotti tried to cover up the truth about Rice's vicious assault of Palmer. On Bisciotti's apparent orders, many of his employees made fools of themselves defending Rice: Rice himself, head coach John Harbaugh and NFL commissioner Roger Goodell.

Goodell, per the report, went against his own better judgement and the best interests of the league to go along with Bisciotti's plan.

The Ravens, for their part, have said the report contained "numerous errors, inaccuracies, false assumptions and, perhaps, misunderstandings."

But if there is even an element of truth to the reports of how they attempted to cover up the evidence against Rice, Bisciotti has to go and Goodell has to go along with him.

Roger Goodell's Best, Worst Moves as NFL Commissioner | Bleacher Report

(excerpt) The original suspensions to the New Orleans Saints players were considered harsh, especially since they were just following orders from their defensive coordinator Gregg Williams.

The nature of the suspensions and the proof didn't seem so convincing when ex-NFL commissioner Paul Tagliabue got involved in the hearings and dismissed the Saints players.

This whole debacle is a great illustration of what happens when you give somebody who is very stubborn too much power. Goodell couldn't see the forest through the trees and became obstinate with the media and all other parties involved.

Maybe someday down the road we will finally know the truth about Bountygate, but until then, this whole adventure is clearly a blemish on Commissioner Goodell's track record.

The question I'd love to pose to the owners is this -

Would the NFL grow and be as profitable with a competent, tempered leader as Commissioner, not named Goodell?

If so, why is Goodell compensated as he is?

Why is he allowed to act as a unchecked authoritarian?
