The infamous video Ray Rice knocking out his then fiancee in an elevator has shone a light on domestic violence issues and its effect has reverberated around the NFL but whether the league saw and dealt with the case is still shrouded in mystery.
Miller received the video?
Roger Goddell the commissioner of the league is still under incredible scrutiny for his handling of the whole situation but continues to deny seeing that video of Ray Rice until its public release by TMZ.
Fifteen days ago the Associated press confirmed that the tape had been sent by a law-enforcement official to the NFL and tonight, the press have confirmed that the video was specifically sent to NFL security director Jeff Miller.
Much like the Commissioner's stance of being oblivious to the original situation, Miller who was Commissioner of the Pennsylvania State Police also claims to have not received the video.
Miller explained via a league spokesman to the Associated Press that: "I unequivocally deny that I received at any time a copy of the video, and I had not watched it until it was made public on September 8,”
The original source who released the news that the video had actually been sent by a law-enforcement official also explained the details involving Miller:
"Since the NFLPA and NFL have launched separate investigations into the league and the Ravens’ handling of Ray Rice’s case, I want to make a few things clear, No one from the NFL ever asked me for the inside-elevator video. I mailed it anonymously to Jeff Miller because he’s their head of security. I attached a note saying: ‘Ray Rice elevator video. You have to see it. It’s terrible.’ I provided a number for a disposable cellphone and asked for confirmation that it was received. I knew there was a possibility Mr. Miller may not get the video, but I hoped it would land in the right hands."
With an independent investigation of the NFL currently being conducted by former-FBI agent Robert Mueller, the truth will be revealed soon on the matter and it is quite possible that the league could see some serious changes, involving Roger Goddell's position as league commissioner.
