Oh My Gawd! The NFL has maintained since controversy broke over Ray Rice knocking out his then fiance that they never saw, could not get, and indeed that no tape existed from inside the elevator the couple went to ride.
Nevertheless, "An employee of the hotel -- which just shut down for good -- tells TMZ Sports he was working there at the time and says the NFL saw the elevator footage before imposing the 2-game suspension." (Emphasis added because WTF? Thought the NFL wouldn't lie to us. Seems they demand much more integrity from players than they show themselves.)
Now however, the NFL and Baltimore Ravens have gone from blaming the victim for provoking the attack to finally and belatedly cutting ties with Rice, perhaps ending his football playing career.
They got there after viewing video provided by TMZ Sports from inside the elevator. Who even knew TMZ Sports existed? Not I, writes the sports idiot spending 90% of his waking hours watching sports.
As a man tempted at times to strike his bi-polar wife with "issues." Mt Moms, however, would have risen from her urn and beat my ass had I succumbed to temptation.
