Ray Rice Set To Testify In Court After NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell Gets Questioned By His Lawyers

| Filed under: ZportzLegal MattersViolenceFootballNFL

Ray Rice will testify in court today in hopes of having his indefinite suspension appealed.

Just days after Adrian Peterson avoided jail time in his child abuse case, NFL commissioner Roger Goodell has to immediately switch his attention over to another ugly scandal.

The commish made his way to a New York courtroom yesterday where he testified and was cross examined in Ray Rice's hearing to appeal his indefinite suspension from the league.

The hearing stems from the footballer's suspension that took place nearly two months ago after footage showed him punching his now wife Janay Rice in an elevator, knocking her unconscious.

Ray was originally supposed to only miss two games to start the season, however, the league eventually changed his punishment and cited the shocking security footage as "new" evidence at the time.

The former Baltimore Raven's legal team doesn't quite see it that way, saying Ray was 100% cooperative with the league and that they had no right to change his original punishment.

Now it will be Ray's turn to take the stand and make his case that he was unfairly punished and terminated in the aftermath of the violent scandal.

While the running back will testifying later today, U.S. District Judge Barbara S. Jones is NOT expected to make a decision any time soon, and even if she does appeal his suspension, it doesn't seem likely that any team would pick him up at this point.

We'll keep you updated with what happens when Ray speaks.

    Not to minimize the scourge of domestic violence….

    BUT Roger Goodell's mishandling of this other issue makes the Ray Rice incident resemble expressing outrage over a $5.00 rice krispy treat at a kindergarten bake sale.
