The Baltimore Ravens were arguably the most talked about NFL franchise last week after the events involving their former Runningback Ray Rice.
After Rice was dropped by the team on Monday and then subsequently suspended indefinitely by the NFL, no-one could have predicted the events that would transpire later in the week.
It was certainly a week to forget for NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell but it wasn't just the NFL players and executives making the headlines.
The Ravens fans themselves made the news after ESPN did several interviews outside the M&T Bank Stadium before the Thursday Night Football game between the Ravens and the Pittsburgh Steelers.
The Ravens fans were making big promises ahead of the game, showing support for their former player and claiming he deserved a second chance while wearing their Rice jerseys.
That wasn't the big story of Thursday however as superstar recording artist Rihanna was even dragged into the issue now seemingly unwillingly.
It was announced that Rihanna was due to perform before kick-off in the Ravens - Steelers game but that CBS would not show the performance.
The story claimed that they wouldn't show the performance because of the singers history with domestic violence.
A fairly outrageous claim to begin with in some people's opinions but nevertheless it was the story we were told.
Now Rihanna herself has disputed the claims and has even come out to fight them after claiming she was never scheduled to perform in Baltimore.
The truth behind the story was that the NFL and CBS licensed a Jay Z song which also featured Rihanna.
Rihanna however took to Twitter to make it clear that she was still very outraged with the NFL and CBS over the issue.
With CBS actually wanting to use the song on this weeks Thursday Night Football, she has showed just how enraged she still is Tweeting: "CBS you pulled my song last week, now you wanna slide it back in this Thursday? NO, F*** you! Y'all are sad for penalizing me for this."
Rihanna appears to be upset that they insinuated her music shouldn't used because she was a victim of domestic violence herself.
But clearly the singers reaction has shown just how silly a story that was and it has now delivered more negative publicity to a league that has had more than it can handle recently.
