Arbitrator: Roger Goodell Must Testify in Rice Case
Arbitrator U.S. District Judge Barbara S. Jones has ruled that NFL commissioner Roger Goodell must testify in Ray Rice's appeal of his indefinite suspension, a source told ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter on Wednesday.
The appeal will be held November 5th and 6th according to ESPN and media reports. The NFL however seems intent to continue to fight and find a way for Goodell to not have to testify.
Both sides are saying the other is lying and the NFLPA has appealed the NFL's decision to punish Ray Rice twice.
This is getting uglier by the minute for the NFL and one has to wonder if this is going to lead to Goodell's demise. The owners are going to find a scapegoat if they need one and one has to wonder why the NFL is fighting so hard to keep Goodell out of this. Is Goodell in trouble?
