ESPN anchor Hannah Storm gave an emotional signoff on “SportsCenter,” as she questioned the NFL’s handling of the Ray Rice crisis and it’s stand on domestic violence.
“If the NFL and the Ravens had to see that video to be moved to significant action, should those who support the league demand the same?” Storm asked. “To see action? To see change before believing? What exactly does the NFL stand for?”
You can watch Storm’s emotional commentary in this video:
Storm’s statements come on the heels of the Baltimore Ravens cutting star running back Ray Race, and the NFL suspending him indefinitely, after he was seen on a TMZ video knocking out his fiancée and now wife, Janay Palmer, in an Atlantic City, N.J., casino elevator last February.
The Raven’s and the NFL’s action came after Rice was initially suspended for just two games because the Ravens and NFL claim they never saw the video from inside the elevator.
Former FBI Director Robert Mueller is leading an “independent investigation” to determine what the NFL did and didn’t know in regards to evidence in the Ray Rice case.
This is, without a doubt, the biggest crisis facing the NFL and it’s commissioner Roger Goodell.
The world, and millions of fans, are watching.
