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.

It's been a rough couple of weeks for the NFL as star running backs Ray Rice and Adrian Peterson were wrapped up in domestic violence and child abuse scandals respectively.

The NFL commish finally spoke today to address the league's poor handling of each scandal, saying:

UPDATE! Arizona Cardinals Running Back Jonathan Dwyer Suspected Of Allegedly Assaulting His Wife On TWO Separate Occasions

Filed under: Icky Icky PooLegal MattersViolenceFootball

arizona cardinals jonathan dwyer two separate incident

We reported earlier how Arizona Cardinals running back Jonathan Dwyer had been arrested for domestic violence.

it had been initially reported that he had been charged with aggravated assault, and preventing someone from calling 911.

But it looks like this story somehow is even worse than we first thought.

Now, it's come out that he's suspected of assaulting his wife on not one, but two different occasions.

On top of that, he's been accused off allegedly breaking some bones.

According to law enforcement, the football player allegedly beat his wife in their Phoenix home on July 21st AND July 22nd. Just awful.

In addition, cops say that his wife and their 18-month old child, both listed as victims by authorities, left the state after these two altercations.

This is atrocious. An 18-month old should never be a victim of ANYTHING.

After an investigation, Jonathan is now being charged with 1 count of aggravate assault causing a fracture, 1 count aggravated assault involving a minor, 2 counts of criminal damage, 1 count of preventing the use of a phone in an emergency, and assault.

This is just horrible.

rihanna mad at cbs airing thursday night football intro

Someone has some strong feelings about this — and she should!

Last week, amidst the Ray Rice scandal, Rihanna's scheduled intro to Thursday Night Football was canceled, for several reasons. They wanted to have a more somber, journalistic approach to the situation, rather than the pop star and Kanye West performing, along with a comedian. Well, that and the fact that RiRi was a part of her own domestic violence scandal.

So, CBS apparently is planning a redux, but Rihanna said, NO! Only in much stronger terms. She tweeted:

covergirl issues statement regarding game face black eye photo

This just isn't a strong enough response.

Yesterday we told you about how CoverGirl had their Baltimore Ravens "Get Your Game Face On" ad hijacked by Twitter, and photoshopped with a black eye over the model.

You know, because the NFL apparently doesn't feel too strongly about domestic violence, as we learned with this whole Ray Rice fiasco!

Well, it created a PR nightmare for the beauty company, and they released a statement about their partnership with the league, saying:
