Former NFL security director suggests Roger Goodell is lying

Ray Rice hit the headlines earlier this week when a video of him beating up his former fiance now wife, Janay, was published by TMZ.

The video became the hottest topic in sports earlier this week, with united condemnation across the globe aimed towards Rice for his actions.

The intense media storm that followed caused the Baltimore Ravens to release the talented 25-year-old star running-back, before the NFL suspended him indefinitely.

Hating on the NFL

But now that the dust has settled somewhat, attentions seem to now be firmly focused on the NFL and not Ray Rice. This is because the NFL only gave Ray Rice a two-game ban for his actions, which after seeing the video is a grave mistake.

And NFL commissioner claims him and his organisation never saw the video and were not able to obtain it before he made the decision on Rice's ban.

But this claim is something that many well informed reporters have flagged up as a complete lie. Now not all of them claim that Goodell has seen the video, but Goodell's statement that nobody at the NFL has seen the video is what many have had a problem with.

NFL lies

The latest to voice his opinion on the subject is an unnamed former NFL security director who says he isn't buying the lies that the NFL are creating right now, according to CBS Sports.

"The job description also says "becoming a close and trusting liaison with federal state and local law enforcement agencies as well as other government entities, such as DMV, is essential." Security directors are required to "establish and maintain effective liaison on a confidential and professional basis with federal, state and local law enforcement officers and other public safety authorities," CBS Sports reported.

"The NFL responded to this in an email saying: "Having a professional relationship with law enforcement officials on all levels is helpful when an incident occurs to be able to attempt to determine the underlying facts as soon as possible. At times this is not possible if the information cannot be shared outside of the law enforcement agency realm.""
