The controversy surrounding Goodell comes from the rumors that say he saw the latter Ray Rice video well before saying he did. The 2-game suspension from the beginning was heavily criticized, and now even more so when it was released that the video was sent to the NFL in April. Goodell still claims to have not seen the video until it was released to the public by TMZ.
TMZ was a part of the conference, as one reporter from the news station would question Goodell, and seems to have stumped him. He would ask Goodell why he hadn't suspended Rice indefinitely right away. Goodell responded by giving the same reason as before, claiming to have not seen the elevator video until last week. When ask why the NFL couldn't get a hold of the video from the casino but TMZ could, Goodell said "I can't explain how you got that information."
Despite all of the questions surrounding him, the commissioner feels as if he has the full support of the NFL owners. A few owners have openly stated their support of Goodell, saying they trust him despite all of the allegations. Goodell says he intends to implement a new personal conduct policy before this year's Super Bowl.
Although Goodell seems to be trying to do and say the right things, the National Organization for Women is still calling for the commissioner's resignation. There is still an open investigation ongoing that may reveal more truth than what we have received thus far regarding the NFL's honesty in handling these issues.
